Note: This post was drafted and the blog owner is already in Hong Kong for the second time around.
In an unexpected turn of events, I suddenly had to go through a pile of maps inside a brown envelope I kept and familiarize myself with the MTR. I’ll be going on a sponsored trip for a Cebu to Hong Kong flight courtesy of Airphil Express. I’ll be joining four other bloggers who were invited to take part in the inauguration of this new budget airline route.
reading the MTR map again to give me a quick run-through of the place
Hong Kong is the first destination that I visited outside my own country. Even if it hasn’t reached a year before I’m stepping foot on this region again, I’m really looking forward to this trip.
The last time was just too fast-paced, going from one famous tourist spot to another: Ocean Park, Disneyland, hopping on a ferry boat to Macau, Victoria Peak and other shopping spots. I remember my legs killing me as it was 6 days of walking non-stop.
people on the streets at 10pm
Reading through old entries which helped propel traffic to this blog, I can’t help but feel excited that I’ll be visiting one of the most densely populated areas in the world again. It will be fun to watch people walk (yes indeed!) and see neon lights and colored signs begging for attention in each district.
One great thing about this is that I’ll have more time to just chill and take things in a slower pace.
No car hire portugal here but the night is definitely alive.
Hong Kong Street Food
One of the things I missed out on was trying the street food. I don’t know what went wrong but we never got to taste fried squid balls or check out noodle shops when we were there. Since I’m also on a budget, I’ll be happily munching on these food items which I’m already craving for.
I’ll try one, I’ll try ‘em all!
I hope to focus more on narratives as my articles before were purely based on itineraries. They were helpful posts, but I’d like to share more stories about life in HongKong.
Airphil Express will be launching its maiden flight route from Cebu to Hong Kong which is a welcome treat as this gives every Filipino more choices when it comes to choosing cheaper flights on airline promo fare rates.
I’m really lucky to be included on the list so I’m taking advantage of the vacation to take a longer break. I hope it won’t rain as I’ll be staying there for 6 days.
