ok many has been complaining that i did not update about my trip~~~so there it is .... its going to be a long long entry......

the inital plan was to go bangkok via AirAsia, everything was planned and booked accordingly. However due to the politics there, we decided to change the destination to HongKong. But the problem was tht we already booked the air ticket to Bangkok. By cancelling it, we have credit shares that entitles us to travel within 3 months. Next problem.... there is no direct flight to HK via AirAsia and also it only travels from KL to Macau.... so we decided on the cheapest route:

`SBS Bus into Johor
`Coach into KL
`AirAsia into Macau
`Ferry into HK
`Jetstar back Singapore
Althought this is a super troublesome route to take but think all of did not regret a single bit :)

Arrival at Johor
Had to change some ringgit then went to buy coach tickets then we were already super hungry by then so had brunch at "restaurant" and ate chicken rice. Well, haha we had dead cockroaches to welcome us there. It wasn't really comfortable to sleep during the coach ride because we were traveling in the day. Nevertheless we still got some rest. At the stopover, we had our herbal egg and kaya balls as usual. This time the egg is not so nice.

Arrival at KL
HaHa~ not very hungry but still ate.... had root bear float at A&W's ..which cannot be found in Singapore anymore. the wanton mee stall that derek yearned for was not in operation.. haha so decided to do some shopping. i only bought an ESCADA perfume at RM20. Something which i wanted quite some time ago. Actually got quite a lot of nice accessories to buy but then haven go HK jiu spend so much so decided not to look at them. Then had some minced meat, meat ball noodle thingy.. after all of us had ordered, we realised we do not have enough rinngit to pay for our food. Then we took a cab to KLCC as directed by the staff of AirAsia to take a skybus from there to the Low Cost Carrier terminal. In the end, realised he gave wrong directions. Should be KL central instead. No choice lor because we were afriad we might not make it to the plane on time~ took a cab all the way there which took about an hour. Had super good tasting coke(because can tell it is very fresh by its gasiness) what's more ?! its refillable.... opps` did i mention that we were penniless? haha jeanie is the richest with around $4RM wahahah managed to grab some mini cakes to munch on the plane... oh since we are taking a budget airline, we had to be like auntie and uncle to chiong for good seats ... hahaha this is only the third time taking a plane... on the plane, it reminds me of the trip to Bangkok with my mother and father when i was in Primary 4. That was the only time i took an airlane to and fro...little did i know it will be the last trip overseas via plane. The flight was quite shaky because of the bad weather... very scary...

Arrival at Macau 24 Sept @ 2.15am
The custom there were very strict. They really stare hard into you face and tally it with the photo in the passport. Its very windy there and then we took a cab to a place where the cab driver recommanded a place with some good noodles. After eating, we walked to the ferry terminal. The night scenary there is almost breathtaking. A place well known for gambling, there were casino lights of different colours shining all over. The area is also quite deserted, good for people who like to take photos of themselves (like us). The Romanic(not romantic as in Romans ?) area was the place which i fancied most. It has a very vintage feel to it but can be very scary also. Good place for taking wedding photo but funny timing larx. Then we walked to the ferry terminal to buy the ferry ticket. The journey to HK took us about an hour ??? Oh i am those kind who will get seasick... but then this time nothing happened because i fell asleep once i was on board wihout even waking up once until we arrived at HK.

Arrival at HongKong 24 Sept @ 7.30am
Once we arrived... a snacks shop welcomed us !!! but i cannot buy... because i am fat. hahaha then went into the MTR station to purchase the octopus ticket. Travelled to MONGKOK. Started to look for hotels ... walked a few streets and finally found a presentable hotel called TATAMI HOTEL. For budget reason, we decided to squeeze the 4 of us into one room. And for this reason, we had to hide SK and Jeanie. So only derek and I went upstairs to see the room. Luckily we didn't book before we tour the hotel. The lift was quite nice, at the coriddor, the floor was carpeted. It was until he opened the door that leads to all the rooms when we got a bad feeling. The room is like super small !!!!! Imagine a hostel room with two beds and a bathroom. It only allows space for maxi. 2 people to move about at the same time. totally UNACCEPTABLE !!! but then again, the hotel is not bad lar. Decided to spend a bit more to get a better hotel so went to STANFORD HOTEL. This time, when the door to the room was opened, i thought to myself "Finally this is a hotel." For the amount paid for the smallest room in this hotel, i can get a suite in KL. But we couldn't for more considering the hotel rates in HK. Likewise we did the booking whereas sk and jeanie waited outside then they sneaked in like thevies. Firstly we bathed because we didn't get to bathe the entire yesterday. Then we implement a rule that anyone who falls asleep will have to pay HK200 in order to prevent time wastage. We went shopping at "Chicks" and also the Ladies Street. Frankly there is really nothing much there that attracted us to buy. At the Ladies Street, we met a very nasty seller. So turned off by his attitude. Then went back hotel to change into shorts then went Sham Shui Po to walk temple street. Then again only derek managed to get a pair of jeans and we ate a disapponting dinner when diners around us were eating fresh seafood. Again, for budget reasons. haHa~ Oh ya... we also got stopped by police to check our identity. Luckily sk and jeanie got bring passport and i was also holding on to the hotel's card. They weren't very poilte either.

25 Sept
Got up early and went to have breakfast. Then i ordered wrong stuff to eat in the end derek exchanged his with mine. We walked Fa Yuen Street also known as the street with shops selling sports items. I wasn't really interested and so was Jeanie, so we ended up looking at cute guys. Wahaha~ In order not to make it so obvious, we refer cute guys as "shoe". I had my first cup of milk tea wih pearls !!! c") Then took MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui to shop. Poor SK suffered from diaherrea. Jeanie and I managed to get our hair treatment. In that salon got a lot of "shoe". Really the guys in HK really know how to style themselves and also dare to perm their hair. Instead of the 45 minutes as promised, the treatment lasted for 2 hours and that two guys waiting outside for us nearly killed us. Then had Ajisen for dinner. The guys had their dinner there first while waiting for us and ended up kana chased out of the restaurant. Then when we went in again, their attitude was super bad. totally HORRIBLE ! This day, Jeanie and SK bought a lot of things until all the shop closed they also haven walked finish.

26 Sept
Hmmm had Yoshinoya for breakfast. It is cheaper than having it in Singapore. Then we went Wan Zai where the wholesale centre is there. I got no idea why we still went there when we cannot even buy anything from there. Then went to this shopping mall whereby we bought a lot of of maggie mee, mochi mooncake and some lao po bing. Overloaded so went back to the hotel to unload all our goods before going to Causeway Bay. There we also cannot get any shopping done because all the stuff there were too expensive for us to afford. Left the mall and tried the street shops. Ended up having my stemed milk !!!! c") wahahaha not bad lar... very milky of course but then finish one bowl by myself made me sick of it quite fast. In the end, we decided to go back Tsim Sha Tsui (where we were yesterday) to continue with our shopping. We actually stayed in one shop for an hour plus and spent enough to get a VIP card ! Can you believe it ? HahAH but then the whole day i only got a green pooh tank top and a belt for myself.... I haven shopped enough !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


27 Sept
10.45am Edith knocked on our door. She is a HongKong whom i got to know when i was in Sec.3 during the exchange program. And at that point of time, i was still in the bathroom while theother 3 pigs still sleeping. So happy to see her, she also like very excited like that. We went to eat Tim Sum at a restaurant and there we also learnt how the locals wash their culteries before they consume. The "Bo Lo Bao", "Char Siew Bao", "Nai Wang Bao" was delicious !!!!!!! whahha then we went back to the hotel to check out and left all our luggages at the lobby. Under 2 person name check in with 9 bags !!! haha after that we realised in MongKok itself has many places for us to shop but we didn't go. So we chiong our shopping. Shop half way realised no more money so frantically looked for the money changer since we have to be on our way to the airport by 5.15pm. After getting the money we went speed shopping and i managed to grab another cup of milk tea before we went to the hotel to get our luagges. We practically ran to the MTR. I gave edith a hug before we separated. Then train from Ching Yi to the airport was very sophisticated. Bought Burger King on board to eat without knowing its actually not allowed. Then we arrived at Singapore and i happily went to the automated check out custom with my new passport when the rest had to queue up... wahahaha ~~~ then bought some alcohol. We got stopped again by the Singapore police again and had to scan ourstuff before exit. Derek's parents came to fetch us back. End oF Trp: EvaLuaTiOn TimE according to rank.......

LiKes:
1. Guys (Densely populated at Mongkok and Tsim Sha Tsui)
2. FooD (Milk Tea, Egg Ball, Smelly Tofu, Fishball)
3.Shopping (Quite cheap)

DisikeS:
1. Sales Personnal: f you dun purchase, they give you bad attitude
2. Food: Super expensive, few variety

Some people will ask why never go Ocean Park or DisneyLand ??? Because of budget reasons again... but then HONGKONG... I'LL BE BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
