5 Places to Visit in Hong Kong

8 Comments

In 2011, I had the chance to visit Asia. My family and I decided to have a vacation in Hong Kong. We stayed there for 4 days and 1 day in Macau. I love Hong Kong more than Macau. I fell in love with this China’s Special Administrative Region. I love the vibrant feeling of the city, the warm welcome of the locals, the rich culture and historical places. Hong Kong is the one who captured my chummy personality.

 

Here, I’ll share my favorite places in Hong Kong and I will probably visit it early next year:

 

1. Hong Kong Disneyland. This is where you can feel that you’re young again.

And the best thing about going to Hong Kong Disneyland? The Mickey Mouse train! 😀

2. The Avenue of Stars.  You can see the names of Hong Kong’s movie icons lie beneath your feet. And you can enjoy this because of the stunning views of the harbour tower above you. Maggie Cheung, Bruce Lee and Chow Yun Fat are among the stars there.

3. Ladies’ Market. The place where you can buy a lot of stuff because it’s relatively cheap.

4. Ngong Ping Village. I enjoyed going there because of the cable car! 🙂 You can see the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. Ngong Ping is a culturally themed village has been designed and landscaped to reflect the cultural and spiritual integrity of the place.

5. The Peak. You can actually see the sparkling skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour all the way to the green hills of the New Territories at night. Plus, there’s a Madame Tussauds here.

I have been planning on writing a short story for days now. but I can’t seem to think of anything to write about. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I’m not uninspired or anything. I just can’t think of something to write about that I think will be a good read. yeah, call me a itsy bitsy perfectionist, but when I write something, I put real effort into it. I don’t wanna just smash the keyboard and then BOOM! a wild short story appeared!

But anyway, I was wondering if I could write about a girl that travels. you know? someone who travels a lot! and she likes writing and photography and stuff. and the story unfolds ala Eat.Pray.Love..but wait, a short story would not suffice with that plot!

Another problem is this. I really really love writing. I could probably write a lot but I don’t think I have the patience to write a novel! I don’t think I could craft a coherent plot. and to just add, I am pretty lame at writing endings because I always AVOID like the plague an ending that seems to cliche’. so instead of writing some happy ending, I kinda leave my readers (if there’s any) hanging.eat pray love

But that’s just really my story and my style. I want to write about something relevant. you know, kinda like a social critique. like let’s say about the NSA or something. yeah! yeah! how about that, wait for it. I’ll post it here.

Toodles.
