I am overwhelmed at the number of things I could do in this place! It's less than 2 wks before I leave MNL for a relaxing [but quite an expensive] experience with my mum! I am trying to plan our itinerary [we're doing a DIY trip] and hopefully we'll get to go to all the places we want plus some shopping along the way, after all, we are going there during the sale season!

I'm gonna be broke but happy!

I'll try to post photos and my final itinerary during or after my trip :)

  1. hey Ruby you might want to check out the bookstores in HK. my cousin Dianne went book hunting there and came back with a suitcase full of books:

  2. Blooey! Thank you for that tip! I'll print out the guide for second-hand bookstores later! :) It'll definitely help us since we have some free time for shopping. :)

    I hope that I won't go over the plane's baggage limit! lol!
    I'll blog about my finds too -- I'm starting to FINALLY catch up on my reading & blogging. I <3 vacations! :)

  3. Thanks for sharing this post. Ocean Park is the 170 miles long sparkling jewel of Hong Kong. Kids enjoy in The Dolphin Breeding Centre. Bird lovers can enjoy seeing the Amazing Birds Show. Don't fail to visit the Butterfly House, Goldfish Pagoda. You can engage in some diving, sliding and spiralling water sports. In Ocean Theatre there are some extra ordinary performances showcasing Sea Lions and Dolphins up to their hysterical, rib-tickling tricks which attract the youngsters. Get the best experience riding in Mine Train, Raging River,Crazy Galleon etc.

    Hi Ruby, got your link from GT. You may also want to visit The Peak after Ocean Park. And then, after The Peak, you can ride the ferry to go back to TST.

    You may also want to check my Hong Kong posts on my blog. =)

  6. Hi Badet! :)
    I saw your blog! Will deffo try to squeeze in The Peak with Ocean Park since it's open until 11pm, right? :D
    That leaves us some free time to go shopping too!
