30-11-2016 Bong & Hong Kong Trip Part 6

After finished walking at Kowloon Park,
we went into Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Center
to get ourselves chilled down a bit with the aircon~
Hehe!
From archaeological discovery from old time
to
testing your knowledge about archaeological finds...
the center definitely offers a lot of
interesting things to see
(than just the old aircon to cool ourselves down)
hehe~
This floor
is actually made of glass
and beneath it is trays of broken antiques~
So beautiful!
At the thematic exhibition gallery,
at that time it was exhibition of 'Listen to Hong Kong'
听‘香’讲 
One of the exhibitions
"真心话" (The truth)
Later that day,
I went down from the guesthouse
to buy this Michelin Guide
recommended street food~
It was 妈咪鸡蛋仔
(Mummy Pancake)~
At that time,
a Japanese food show
was doing filming at that shop as well~
I ordered one with chocolate flavor
and costed 20 Hong Kong dollar~
There is a screen right beside the cashier
where it displays the waiting number~
In a short while,
the Japanese hosts got their food...
and so did I!
Then,
we spent a little time at the Signal Hill Garden...
which was actually on our way to the ultimate destination~
We were so shocked
to see how many people
gathered there playing Pokemon Go~
We went up the hill,
had a bit of the view~
then 
walked down again....
Our next 'pass-by' stop
was this Subway Starry Gallery~
The artists showcased there
were familiar for me,
but not Arne~
To be continued...

27-11-2016 Bong & Hong Kong Trip Part 5

After checking out the 
Hong Kong Avenue of Comic Stars,
we also went around to check out other things at 
this Kowloon Park~
It was a lot of people
using the Kowloon Park swimming pool
at that time~
There is more than 1 pool there
and all the swimming pools
are actually rather big!
We wanted to try it too
but unfortunately 
we just didn't have time for it throughout the whole trip~
One special thing that amazed me very much
in Hong Kong was
their authorization of using this kind of
scaffolding~
For our first Hong Kong breakfast,
we went into this Yuen Kee Restaurant
源記燒味粉麵茶餐廳
Well,
this was a very easy way
to place the order/bill~
First of all,
we had to try the Hong Kong style
milk tea~
Arne had an american chicken chop
breakfast set (with toast, ham, baked beans)
and I ordered an instant noodle
plus pork chop~
Total
only costed us 61 Hong Kong dollar~
After breakfast,
Arne took a picture with the sign going to Hong Kong island
(with his typical playful facial expression)...
and then we went to this place
to do a thing 
that we ALWAYS do when we travel...
and that is sending
postcard!
Then we went back to Kowloon Park again
to see the park in daytime~
Lol!
With a lot of green plants,
in the middle of the city center,
the park is the perfect spot for people to go for a walk
or exercise...
or just relax~
We went from the Chinese park
to Aviary bird lake~
The birds there do pose for tourists while they are taking pictures~
Like this one,
it changed it pose from
.  "Let me out!"
to "Hey, are you taking picture of me"!
Then we saw one
that stared at us fiercely at first,
and then 
ignored us totally~
We went around the park
and ended up at another end
which is the Garden of Life~
We never seen this kind of hibiscus
that is so big as a tree
and the flowers are kinda special too~
From gardens to lakes,
we actually spent more than 2 hours there 
because the park is huge!
To be continued...

XOXO
