15-11-2016 Bong & Hong Kong Trip Part 1

After 1.5 hours of ferry,
we finally arrived at Kow Loon (Hong Kong)~
I knew that the guest house that we were gonna
stay at....
was not very far away from the Kow Loon ferry terminal~
So we just asked a lady working there
for direction
and we started walking
with our big and heavy luggage
to the guest house~
The guest house is located at
Nathan Road...
and Nathan Road is a LONG road~
We spent extra 15 minutes
on our way there
because we went all the way to the end of Nathan Road,
only then started looking for the right number~
The guest house that we were staying
is actually just right beside Tsim Sha Tsui 
subway station~
We went up to the right floor,
right block
then just called the person to open the door for us~
The room that we got
was actually not the same as the one I booked on Booking.com.
I booked one with a window + city view
but turned out they only had a room with no window for us~
The room was small,
but that was kinda expected since it was Hong Kong!
Since it was a Sunday,
they couldn't contact the owner of the guest house
to fix things up for us~
We left the room problem behind,
and went out for dinner~
We simply found a restaurant that looked 
kinda okay~
We ordered set dinner 
1 dish + rice 
+ soup 
and chinese tea~
Price was around HK $60 per person.
We ordered their famous ‘kencur’chicken 
(沙姜鸡)
Braised eggplant with salt fish and minced pork
(鱼香茄子)
The food was very very good~
but just looking at the small size
of the table,
we could feel the expensiveness of the rental in Hong Kong~
We walked a bit after the dinner
and Arne paid much attention
to the unique taxi in Hong Kong
(The red old Toyota)
The next day,
we got the room that I actually had booked
but they told me it was a mistake with the price
that's why we needed to pay extra for room with window~
At the end, we paid HK $1600 for 5 nights stay at this
guest house~
It wasn't expensive at all...
but I was a bit disappointed with the mistake they made in Booking.com.
The new room that we got
was with private bathroom
but as you can see,
the bathroom was not big at all~
We were totally OK with that,
and in fact 
we were kinda comfortable experiencing the Hong Kong (tiny) style~

To be continued....
XOXO
