What Is It With Women and Shopping??

Hey there!

I just shopped few stuff online, a dress and two necklaces. I couldn’t resist!!

English Garden Floral Dress. Kinda torn apart between the one in pink (without the cardie), and the black one. But finally, chose the black one.

And these two necklaces, I love them! Simple and cute!

Love the locket!

I dunno what that thing is (the shape of the locket) but I like it!

*All from Buttons.*

Let’s talk bout style and shopping!!
…since I just shopped this stuff few hours ago. Haha

You know, when I was a student, I didn’t care about whatever I wear, about style (NOT that I’m an expert now). I still remember when I was still studying in Brisbane, my friend Fath, asked me, ‘Emy, ko x penah gi shopping2 ke?’ (She asked me that question coz I saw her beautiful dress, and asked her where did she get it. So, she said, she got it from ValleyGirl. I was like, ‘Where the hell is ValleyGirl? Fath seemed soooo surprised that I didn’t know anything about the store).  And I said, ‘Shopping…? Hm.. Nak buat ape? Baju aku byk lgi. Sume bleh pakai (And by ‘baju’, I actually meant tshirts. NO DRESS! NO BLOUSE! NO SKIRTS! etc). And then Fath said, ‘Haha. Jawapan ko same mcm abang aku kalo aku tanye die nape x gie shopping.’ Haa..? Abang Fath? She just compared me with her brother. A boy! A guy! A man! That species who doesn’t shop! Hahaha.. Look how much I didn’t care about this shopping stuff, then.The only style that I used, was double-layer tshirts. I mixed and matched the long sleeves with short sleeves, or sleeveless (during winter only, if not, I just wore simple short-sleeves), got a pair of sneakers or thong, a sling bag, and I was good to go. Like this,

Australia Zoo, Gold Cost, Winter 2007

Sydney, 2008.

That’s when I was a student. Tapi skang pon pakai gak.. My back-up style if I dunno what else to wear. Haha

Now, I love dresses, cardies, necklaces, cute shoes, rings, necklaces, shawls, etc. I love those girlish styles! I realize that I’ve liked those stuff since I became a working lady. The only problem is, it’s just that I can’t (or won’t??) wear the same style, TWICE! It’s my disease. Why? Coz I always think people will notice what I wear and say things like, ‘Eish, die tu pakai baju tu lgi.. Arie tu dh pakai…’. Stuff like that la.. Macam la org lain xder keje nk buat selain nk tgk ape aku pakai setiap arie kan…? Bajet diva btol la. I think I’ve explained now, why do women always need new clothes, and always complain that they don’t have anything else to wear, even though they are standing in front of their big wardrobes which full of dresses, skirts, blouses, shoes, etc. So… men (ehem ehem Mr.Gonzales!), don’t la pening kepala.. Okay? Haha

Hmm… About The I-Can’t (or won’t??)-Wear-The-Same-Style-TWICE disease, this actually only applies when I dress up for special outings, like reunion, alumni, friends’ weddings, dinners, this event, that event (dating of course laaa! that’s why la beli floral dress kat atas tu. haha) and etc. Time tu yg x bleh pakai baju yg dh penah pakai. But if keluar minum2 ke, lepak2 ke with gurlfriends or even with Mr.Gonzales.. I just wear tshirts, jeans and selipar jepun. Sempoi.. Tapi x la selekeh. Haha

Okayla..
Need to mark my students’ essays.

Babai!

p/s- Hope I get those stuff I bought by this Saturday!! Nk gi dating ni next week!

It Was A Fun Day! :-)

[No background music since my Fifi is ‘mute’ right now. Haiya… Kena antar service.. Deng btol la!]

Hm… I’m now blogging while eating bread with peanut butter and jelly (while lying on my belly.. so pemalas!). Just wanna update what I’ve been doing these past two days. Yesterday, I attended one of my friend’s wedding, Umie Nadiya. She was gorgeous that day! She was actually my dorm-mate and my bed-mate when I was Form 5. Why did I say bed-mate? This is because every night, when everyone was getting ready to sleep, I would go to her bed, and slept with her on the same bed. Ye la.. Katil single yg kecik tu. Nasib baik kitorg kurus2, so muat la… Hehe. Why did I refuse to sleep on my own bed? Frankly speaking, I was (am) afraid of the ghost and stuff that related to that. Seriously, I dont really mind bad people, thieves, robbers, pick-pockets, but I am really afraid of the ghosts. At that time, my bed was near to the window. When I looked at my left, I would see kebun2 la, pokok sawit and all.. At night, it was kinda creepy and scary. Plus, some of the windows tak bleh tutup lak tu. Huhu. Every time I slept on my own bed, always rase x sedap hati and mmpi yg bukan2. So, I was scared and decided to sleep with Umi, in a kelambu. That continued until the end of the year. Hehe. Tu pon dh tido berdua, pernah jugak aku kena kacau ngn bnde2 ni. Tapi x takut sgt sbb Umie ade kat sebelah. Hihi. Since high school, we haven’t been in touch for quite some time even though she lives in the same district with me. Hm…

Well, congrats Umie on your wedding! Semoga bahagia hingga ke anak cucu. Cheers! 🙂

Haha. Nways, besides meeting Umie, I also met my other high school friends, like Azma, Ain, Raihan, Shakirin, Nisa and etc etc. Haha. I even forgot one of my friend’s name, how cruel! And know what, most of them said the same thing about me, ‘EMY DAH KURUS!!!’ I was like, ‘sejak bile pulak aku gemok ni…?’ Hahahaha. Tapi layan je la…

Yesterday, was also a reunion day with my high school girlfriends, Wana, Aina, Rina, Doyot, Capira, Mas and Cikin. After the kenduri, we hung out at Parsley Cafe. We reminded each others bout the things that we did in high school, all stupid and crazy things, the fight with seniors, with wardens, all those ‘gatal2 case’ with boys, and etc etc. And they reminded me about one big lie that I made when I was in Form 1. I lied to the whole hostel. Haha. The story was, I slipped and fell down the stairs when I was rushing to the ‘prep’ (I believe I actually stepped on my own kain and fell). There was a big crowd and I couldn’t dare to lift my head up after I fell. I was afraid they were gonna laugh at me coz that was one very embarrassing fall. So, I pretended that I actually fainted (HAHAHHAHAHA). Every one was panic and memang kecoh btol satu asrama. The excos brought me to the senior dorm, massaged, gave me water and fanned me until I slept… Haha! Best btol tido bile org kipaskan. I kept that secret for years, and accidentally told my friends when I was Form 4. They shouted in disbelief. Time tu baru terbongkar yang sebenarnyer aku pura2 pengsan sbb malu yg teramat akibat jatuh tangge. That’s why la until now bnde tu still jadi bahan. Hahaha! 😀

Nways, these are the pictures taken during the outing.

Arrived at the wedding scene.. Haha

Congrats Umi! 🙂

IT WAS A FUN OUTING!

Okies! That’s all for now, update more things, next time.
BABAI!

🙂

*I’m praying for something good to happen this week…. Amin*

Blabbering.. Blah Blah Blah! (shut up and let me go!)

That title is soooo silly! Owh yeah, I know!

(background : watching Miley Cyrus on E!)

Hey there! Last few days I was a bit busy with my family. Well, you know, hang out, shopping etc. It’s almost the end of the holiday, so gotta make a good use of it!  Had so much fun!

Went to Alamanda, Putrajaya with mom, Sis Mila, Abg Bob, KakSeha, Aneeq and Danish. Mom wanted to find a handbag, so we walked around the mall to find suitable bag for her. There was year-end sale at Parkson. But mom is very fussy. ‘Super Cerewet!’. She didn’t like most of the bags that I suggested to her. Hmm.. Taste org tua.. Tali pendek sgt la.. Besar sgt la.. Bulky sgt.. Corak die x menarik la.. I really don’t get it! Mila and I made faces every time she rejected our suggestions. Finally, she didn’t buy any bag at all. Thank God dad was not with us. If not, dad would have definitely been mad at her. Haha. But at least now I know where does my super-fussiness come from. Haha

Ni la org tua yg cerewet tu.. Yg pki tdg oren tu.. Haha

The next day, went to SACC with the same objective, finding mom’s handbag. This time, the shopping trip terdiri daripada KakEda, Mila, Wawa, mom and I (Yeah! All ladies!). At the ground floor, there was this crazy sale, 50-70% off! Shoes, bags and wallets. We were all crazy! Mom finally found what she wanted, a brown Bonia handbag with flower-patterned around it (yeah, that bag is for ‘orang tua’, I guess). KakEda and Mila bought cute shoes and I bought…. Nothing. Yeah, so sad. Actually, I wanted this cream bag which had colourful pattern around the zippers but sadly I didn’t bring enough money. Huhu.. And mom wouldn’t let me borrow her money coz she said, ‘Hutang lame pon ko x abes byr lgi..’ Adus mak ni… Huhu… So, I didn’t buy that bag. Which is sooo sad.

Then, we went across the mall to Kompleks PKNS. Mila wanted to buy scarfs. I was not really in the mood coz I didn’t get the bag. So, I just walked slowly following them from behind. She had already bought two scarfs and still considering to buy more. Then, I decided to buy few scarfs and shawls, just for the sake of buying something. Afterall, I’m gonna be teaching soon. I need more scarfs.. (as well as more baju kurungs, more shoes, more bags….). Huhu…

I looked, I picked, I paid. I dunno if it's cute. :-p

Planning to wear this on the first day to school.. But.. Dunno la.. Let's see..

The next day, we went to Jusco Bukit Raja. I still wanted a bag. But then, I added more, I wanted a new tshirt, a new dress, a new pair of jeans and a new pair of shoes! Haih.. This is sooo sad and very hurt. Go shopping with not enough money in the pocket. Mom bought new watch. I chose it for her. Very cute! Then, when mom was happy getting new watch, I asked her to buy me the cute dress that I’ve been spying since she was at the watch counter. Maybe because she was in a good mood, so she bought me the dress. Soooooooooo cute and mom, thank you very much!

So flowery.. So cute!

Haha! Not with that tshirt, jeans and sandals of course.. I was lazy to take them off, So I just wore the dress straight away. Haha

So, enough bout the outings. Now, let’s talk about my posting. I asked Mr.Gonzales to check on my posting at the JPNS website. He told me that I got SK Tebok Jawa, Sabak Bernam (before that he pranked me by saying that I got a school in Gombak. Kurang asam! Mom said I looked like I nearly cried!). So, I got a school in hometown. It’s only less than five-minute drive from home. I already called the school to inform them that I will be posted there. I spoke to the GPK 1, and he was really nice and very welcoming. So, that made me less nervous. Hehe. Hope, everything’s okay.. 🙂

My posting details..

SK Tebok Jawa, Sabak Bernam

Interesting trivia. Mr.Gonzales will be teaching in SK Parit Pechah, Muar, but the name of the place is Parit Jawa. And my school name is SK Tebok Jawa. Funny that we both are sent to places that have Javanese names while we ourselves are NOT Javanese.

Well, as for me, I’m really not Javanese even though I live in Sabak Bernam. My family moved to Sabak from Petaling Jaya coz my dad was transferred to one of the schools in Sabak as a principal many years ago. And my dad himself is Malay-Mandailing, and my mom is Malay-Bugis. That makes me Mandailing Bugis. No Javaese blood at all, (expect for our in-laws). Errm… Why am I explaining this? Haha. I used to have issue with this matter, especially when I was little (primary school), my friends keep saying that ‘I’m Javanese’. I used to get reaaallly mad, and blabbering about my heritage in front of my friends. Silly me! They didn’t understand a thing. Haha.

Okayla.. Enough of all this. I wanna go get some lunch!

And to all of my friends, Happy Teaching, and to all,

Happy New Year!

p/s – New resolution?? Yeah! All bout money!

Hong Kong!!!!! -Part 2

This is the second part of the Hong Kong trip that I went with my friends (Salina, Eqa and Nurul). The second day of this trip was quite special because we had special company, our beloved lecturer when we were in QUT Brisbane, Erika Hepple. Based on the original plan, we couldn’t meet Erika because she was supposed to go back to Brisbane on 3rd Dec, but then she changed the date to that evening so she would be able to meet us. That was very sweet!!

To begin the trip that morning, we went to the airport first to let Erika checked in her luggage because she would be going back to Brisbane that evening. Then, we took a cab to The Peak station. Erika kindly paid for the fare. Hehe. Kalo tak psl dier, takdenyer la kitorg naek cab yg mahal tu.. Hehe

 

Erika was checkin in her luggage. Hehe

Day 2 : Victoria Peak

To go to the upper station, we took a tram. The experience of riding this tram was like riding a roller-coaster when it slowly went up the hill. I felt like I was waiting for the tram to go upside down and speed like hell like a roller-coaster. Haha. But of course, it didn’t happen that way. 😛

 

The view from inside the peak tram. This is the condo area where most of the Hong Kong stars live.

From left, Eqa, Nurul, Salina, Erika and I, inside the tram

It took us about maybe 15 minutes to reach the upper station. Victoria Peak / The Peak is the place where you can see the Hong Kong city from the eye of a bird. Chewah! Haha. Visitors actually can buy the ticket to Sky Terrace (The Peak Tower), to watch the the view from the highest point. But since we didn’t buy the tickets, we just went outside The Peak building and had a walk to see the city view.

 

In the middle of walking, we stopped to take picture. Haha

Unfortunately, on that day the sky wasn’t so clear. If it wasn’t soooooo hazy, we would be able to see the beautiful blue sky, the skyscrapers, the hills and the greenish blue ocean. Erika told us that the haze was actually the smoke of the factories in Mainland China. And she said if the wind blew the other way, the sky would be clear and we could see the beautiful view. So, the gloomy sky wasn’t because of the winter (coz I thought it was!) but pretty much because of the air pollution from China. What a shame!

 

The haze... :-(

The haze... 😦

Day 2 : Madame Tussauds

Then, we went back inside the building to see Madame Tussauds Museum. It is one of the new attractions built in Hong Kong for the tourists. There are about 8 Madame Tussauds Museums around the world, and I felt so lucky that I got a chance to visit one of these wax museums in Hong Kong. I can’t remember how much we paid for the ticket, but I don’t think it was that expensive. Well, you can always check the price online if you’re interested. 🙂

We were greeted by Michelle Yeoh wax in the entrance. It was a bit surprising because she’s Malaysian. But maybe because she’s well-known in Hong Kong as well, so they made her wax to be displayed here. Then, we walked further inside and met Nicole Kidman. She looked soo real and of course, soo tall. I was just about below her shoulder. Well, I’m a girl with short legs, I admit that. Haha. Then, the most exciting part, we met Brangelina too! Angie was beautiful, but Brad was a bit ‘jambu’. But, that’s okay coz meeting them (their waxes) is not something that you can do everyday. Hehe

 

Brangelina and I!

Nicole Kidman.. She looks real, doesn't she?

Long story short, we met many famous people in there, dead and alive, like Johnny Depp, Pierce Brosnan, Marilyn Monroe, Anthony Hopkins, David Beckham, Ronaldinho, Michael Jackson, Obama and Bush, Shakespeare, Picasso, Einstein, as well as fictional character, Astro Boy!

 

Johny Depp! Haha

The royal family... 🙂

I wanted to buy souvenirs here but of course they were all so expensive. The cheapest souvenir that I found was $60, the mini mug, like sooo ‘mini’ (with that big price). I’d been saving the money for Disneyland, so I didn’t buy anything in Madame Tussauds.

Day 2 : Avenue of Stars (Again)

Well, Erika couldn’t join us for the rest of the day because she had a flight to catch that evening. After saying goodbye to Erika, we went to Avenue of Stars again because last night we didn’t get a chance to take proper pictures. Furthermore, it was still too early to go back to the hostel. Even though it wasn’t night yet, but it was already cold. Maybe sebab tempat tu kat tepi laut, so angin kuat, and that’s why la sejuk sgt petang tu. Hehe

 

Aaron Kwok hand print : Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong

This time, I didn’t walk much because my legs were reaaallly hurt especially my toes and around ankle. It was because of my shoes. My Mickey shoes. I chose to wear those because they looked funky. You know, it was all about appearance rather than comfort, so I had to pay for it. Huhu 😦

Day 2 : Prince Edward Market

Even though we were already tired, we still managed to go to this market. Actually the name of this market is not Prince Edward market. Prince Edward is the name of the train station where we got off to go to this market. I couldn’t remember the exact name of this market because it’s in Chinese, so I just called it Prince Edward market. Haha. We didn’t plan to go here actually. Erika suggested it to us. She said there were lots of good stuff with cheaper prices. But I think this market is not really for tourists, because they didn’t really sell Hong Kong souvenirs here. It was like night market where they sold food, clothes, handbags, toys etc and most of people who came to this market were the Hong Kong people themselves. So, if you wanna find something that has ‘Hong Kong’ on it as a souvenir, you better go to Ladies Market or Templer Street Market because those markets are really for tourists. But Erika was right. The stuff here in Prince Edward Market were soooo cheap!

 

At the market..

Prince Edward market was crowded yet still fun. But sadly, I didn’t really enjoy it because I was sooo sakit kaki. I couldn’t even walk properly. So, I went to find some place to sit and just waited for them finished their shopping. Huhu..

Next stop, DISNEYLAND!!!!!!!!!! To be continued in the next entry, HONG KONG!!!!! -Part 3
🙂

 

HONG KONG!!!!! -Part 1

On 2nd December until 6th December 2009, we (Salina, Eqa, Nurul and I) traveled to Hong Kong. This trip was planned in early February this year. We call this trip, ‘After Graduation Trip’. Haha. Why Hong Kong? Because, this is the nearest place that has two biggest attractions in the world, Madame Tussauds and Hong Kong Disneyland. Actually, we almost canceled this trip, due to sooo many problems that occurred along the way. KISSM course, BTN, money… etc. Only when we stopped hoping, the opportunity seemed bright again. KISSM course had been forwarded, BTN had been canceled, and we got the money! We were so excited! YEAH!

So, the journey begins here…

Departure and Arrival.

We arrived at LCCT at 11am. Eqa was already there waiting for us because she took a bus from Malacca straight to LCCT. There was some miscommunication about the place we all should meet. I was confused because when I text eqa, she said she was heading straight to LCCT, but right then I was heading to KL Sentral. So, I thought I already missed this trip. I was nervous and called Nurul and Salina. I was relieved when they told me that they were still in IPBA, waiting for cab. And they were going straight to KL Sentral, then we would go together to LCCT. Hahaha. So, I was right at the first place.

At 11.45am, the three of us arrived in LCCT. We met up with Eqa and had lunch at KFC before checking in. LCCT was really full of flies. Tgh jalan2, nmpk sekumpulan org putih tgh tidur and lalat terbang2 kat keliling diorg. Mcm mayat pulak… To be honest, that was not really the coolest thing I’ve seen. Sian diorg…

Okay, actually our flight was at 4.05pm. So, we got lots of time to kill before boarding. Since I brought Fifi with me, so Nurul and I surfed the net while Salina and Eqa went for a walk kat LCCT tu. Tah hape diorg tgk2 tah..

 

Nurul and I at LCCT..

Eqa and Salina.. waiting for boarding

It was 4 hours flight from KL to Hong Kong. When we arrived at Hong Kong, we were reaaaallly excited. Chap Lek Kok Airport is the best airport voted by most travelers around the world. But you know, we were not really at the main terminal. Since we traveled with AirAsia, so we arrived at Terminal 2 of the airport (it’s like LCCT in Malaysia). But still, it’s the same airport. Haha.

 

In HongKong already!

We took a bus and went straight to Mong Kok. It was almost one hour journey because the airport and the hostel, they were at different islands. About the temperature that night, it was more-less like Brisbane. You don’t have to wear big sweater to wrap yourself. As for me, I was just okay with double layered-tshirt that I wore that night. Even though it was winter, but it wasn’t that cold. Probably because it was still in early December.

To Mong Kok island! To Dragon Hostel!

We stayed in Dragon Hostel in Mong Kok. The room wasn’t that big, but okay for four of us. I reaaaallly like the service there. The owner was very nice, friendly and helpful. The room was okay too. Even though it was small, but we still had toilet in our own room. That was good enough. Afterall, we would be barely in that room. Gune ntok mandi and tido jer. Hehe.

Room 715. Hehe

That night, we went to Ladies Market. The main purpose going to this market was to find ourselves towels since we all forgot to bring it. Haha. I bought towel that had $1000 HK design on it. I think it was cool. Actually, it was a bit difficult to communicate with the sellers. You know, they were all Chinese and couldn’t really speak good English. I think they just used English for this business purpose. Their pattern of communicating with us was all the same. For example,

.

We : How much is this?
The seller : $120 (with Chinese slang, of course)
We : Can you give cheaper? (while doing the signal language)
The seller : $110 (with using calculator, in case we couldn’t understand)
We : Owh.. it’s okay then.. (it WAS still EXPENSIVE!!!)
The seller : Missy missy, how much u pay?? How much u buy??
We : No no.. That’s fine.. (started walking away)
The seller : How much u pay missy?? How much?? (started to follow us)

.Bile dah jalan jauh pon, still dgr suara diorg pgil2 kitorg. And that was how we negotiate price. If we couldn’t understand each other, we just used calculator. But then, they still asked us, ‘How much you pay missy?? How much u buy??’ It was really interesting… yet disturbing.

 

Ladies Market, one of the markets that you must see in Hong Kong.

Day 1 : Ocean Park

Ocean Park is located in Wong Chuk Hang and and Nam Long Shan in the Southern District of Hong Kong. It is a-must-see theme park when you are in Hong Kong.

 

Some info about Ocean Park : Wikipedia

Here, you’ll be able to see the whole view of Ocean Park from The Ocean Tower and scary cable cars, go on the craziest roller coasters that face the ocean, see the sea lions and dolphins, and the most important thing, you’ll get to see the giant pandas (they were huge, but cute!!).

It was quite a cold morning. So, I decided to wear this winter coat that I bought in Aussie. It’s been one and a half year since I last used it. Haha. We took a bus from the city to the park. It wasn’t that far, I think it was just 30 minute-journey. We arrived early (9.40am) and the park opened at 10am. So, we took lots of pictures, and even bought pictures taken by the park cameramen. It was fucking expensive, $159 for one set of pictures. But, why did we still bother buying them?? Easy! Because we looked pretty in those pictures. Hua9

 

Ocean Park, Hong Kong

So, in Ocean Park, we started with giant pandas first. The first time we saw the giant panda, we  couldn’t believe it. I mean, I always thought that thing is not real, extincts or anything like that but it was there before our eyes.  He was ssoooo cute, eating bamboo leaves. He was like a toy, a giant one. Honestly, I’ve never seen a real panda in my life and that was really priceless.

 

Comeynyer.....!!

Then, we took a train to go to the other side of the hill. That is where you can find all the craziest rides, awesome HK views and expensive food. Speaking bout the rides, I just tried one ride, and that was even water ride, not the craziest one. I really wanted to tried all the crazy rides, but I was scared. If I had company to go on those rides, I would. Haha.

 

The Mine Train.. But they should name it, the Mine-By-the-Sea train.. Hm..

Haha. Berani naek ni jer..

We went on The Ocean Tower to see the Hong Kong view from that island. It was reaally beautiful. The hills, the ocean, the whole park.. Everything was really beautiful. I took lots of pictures when I was up there. Hehe

 

The Park

The Ocean and The Islands

The Hills..

Then, we went to Atoll Reef, and watched sea animals. The reef had three floors and you can see various types of sea animals like fish, turtles, giant stingrays, jellyfish. All the weird ones. Haha.

 

I dunno what this is...

Like all other theme parks, the food in Ocean Park was really really expensive, especially the drinks. The Fillet O-Fish (item) that I bought there cost me almost $14-15 HK, and the drink, even just a Coke, it costs almost $16-17 per drink. That is insane! That is more expensive than the food. Even if we converted the Coke price to RM, (RM8), it was still expensive. But, what to do.. We were all hungry. Haha.

On the way back to main park, we took a cable car because we’ve already tried the train. I thought this wasn’t so scary like the one in Genting Highland or Langkawi, so I didn’t really mind. But yeah, at the beginning of it, it really wasn’t so scary. I sat facing the ocean, and it was really cool. I had fun enjoying the view. And I also had fun teasing Salina and Eqa, because they were damn scared of the height. Haha. Nurul and I kept laughing at them, provoked them saying we were getting higher and bla bla.. Sal bit her lips and couldn’t open her eyes. That was sooo funny……… until I looked down. Gulp! I didn’t expect we were that high, and that far from the station. Suddenly I could feel my legs shaking. I couldn’t move my body, seriously. It was reaaaalllly high! And I sat facing the ocean! But I was still laughing. I found it funny realizing that ‘now, I’m scared!’. I looked at Nurul, and she was scared too. We kept looking down and said ‘Shit, shit, shit, shit’, until we couldn’t look down anymore. That was soo scary. But we couldn’t stop laughing. Laughing at the fact now the four of us were scared. Sal cried at the top of the hill and all the down to the main park (well, that one was funny too! hahahahah). Thank God the cable car didn’t stop and swing at that time. If not, maybe I would pee in my pants. Seriously.

 

Eqa was scared. Haha

Salina was scared too! Haha (again)

This was where Nurul and I got scared! No haha!

After that scary experience, we went to see the giant pandas again. There were two pandas this time. And they were still eating bamboo leaves. And still cute, as always. Haha. We were already tired and wanted to go back even though it was still early. Even though we hadn’t seen everything, but we had seen alot. We were really tired and my leg hurt like hell. So, we went back to the hostel, took a nap and planned to take a walk around the city that evening.

 

I love pandas adventure!

Day 1 : Avenue of Stars and Symphony of Light, Hong Kong

That evening, around 5.30pm, we went out to go to Avenue of Stars.

 

Some info about Avenue of Stars : Wikipedia

When we arrived here, it was already dark. Bear in mind, it was winter so they had shorter days than usual. It was hard to take pictures of the hand prints and autograph by the Hong Kong stars, because we didn’t have DSLR. Haha. So, we just walked and tried our best to take pictures of the Victoria Harbour at night. Victoria Harbour is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong island and the Kowloon Peninsula in Hong Kong. It was really beautiful, looking at the colourful lights on the buildings across the sea. I think we were quite lucky because we came during winter, and it was almost Christmas, so most of the light decoration there was Christmas themed.

 

Colourful lights..

The hand print of Slyvia Chung, one of the famous Hong Kong Stars

We stayed there until late watching the Symphony of Light.

 

Some info about Symphony of Light : Wikipedia

So, now you get the idea of what Symphony of Light is, right? Hehe. There were these wicked lasers coming out of top of the building across the sea. The idea of doing this was great, but I think the whole event was too simple. The main attraction was just those lasers, nothing else. Maybe because I’ve seen this kind of thing better in Aussie during the River festival, so I wasn’t really impressed by symphony of light. But overall, it was okay.

 

Symphony of Light

Meriah..

That’s all bout day 1. We really had great time, and pretty tired too. I still have lots of stories to tell. And this will be continued in next entry, HONG KONG!!!!! -Part 2.
