26th May 2011

So, for those who don't know. I was actually MIA to HK for a coupla days at the beginning of May... Hehehe.. Took a few days off work to come for a short holiday cause bf is in between jobs. Picked HK for a coupla reasons:

1) Managed to get quite cheap tickets (RM580 for return) - would have been cheaper if I bought them 2 weeks earlier cause AA was doing a promo.
2) Have coupla cousins staying in HK so free accommodation! Woots! Thanks Wei ko! :D
3) Bf has not been to HK before.

Anyways, left last Friday afternoon. Arrived at about 9pm cause AA was slightly delayed. Cousin had arranged for a friend to come and pick us up from the train station cause he was still in KL and the friend needed to pick up some stuff from his house anyways.

Just some random photos below before we got to HK.

But yea - even on our first night, we already had a slight adventure:

1) The friend had brought the wrong keys with her cause we couldn't open my cousin's apartment door! We then headed back to her place (which luckily was only like 5 mins drive away) to check her place. Luckily we managed to find the correct key! Haha! Was worried we were going to homeless for 2 nights!

2) Me and bf decided to go and brave HK since it was a Friday night and we hadn't really had dinner. Called my cousin and he told us that we were able to walk it to Central and would only take us 20 mins! Wah.. but that was a freakin' long 20 mins mannnn!! LOL! Probably took us more like 40 mins! Haha! We then came to a deduction that it was because HK people probably walk alot faster! Anyways, got to my cousin's suggested place at about 12.30am only to realise that they closed so we ended up in the char chan teng next door.

 Bf's prawn with HK sauce noodles.

Bf sipping HK Lai cha! It was yummy! but bf couldn't sleep after that. 

 My fish ball and fish paste soup. Not bad I must say.

If I remember correctly, our bill came up to about $100++ HKD which was about RM40 meal. Which was okay I guess but considering it was char chan teng stuff? Hmm.. How much do people normally pay to eat in Kim Gary's? I haven't been there in ages. But is it roughly the same price?

After we ate, we didn't want to have to hike all the way back to my cousin's place, so we decided to just take a cab. Btw, felt that cabs in HK were so expensive! Once you jump into the cab, they start at $18 HKD! That's like RM7 already!
