SZX-HK: Day 3

Due to strict immigration; filling up forms, long queue, not to mention our precious time taken for correction of particulars wrongly written on my sister’s passport, We managed to hop on the
train and arrived at East Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon) only after 10am, and we were an hour behind the schedule. I was thrilled to hear people picked up the phone; “weii..” macam drama TVB!

From East Tsim Sha Tsui, we changed direction to Tsim Sha Tsui to Central (HK mainland) The station exit lead us to the Statue Square (not into my liking) of Sir Thomas Jackson, the former chief manager of HSBC; Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation.



The Legislative Council located just nearby (Chater Road), alongside were HSBC headquarters, the Mandarin Oriental, etc. HK is an amazing place indeed, modern, busy but efficient.

the Legislative Council
cute kan

We walked along Garden Road (for 10 mins or so) passing St. John’s Cathedral to the Peak Tram station. While waiting in the queue, we were actually enjoying the historical gallery of memorabilia exhibited of HK 19/20th century.


the said red Peak Tram
Onboard, I was somewhat scared by its 45 degrees angle leaning, climb 373 metres!

The 8 minutes ride took us to the Peak Tower...


..and having the time of my life with Kylie Minouge at Madame Tussauds :)


bond girl :P
i like this one!

the way that finally lead us to Lion Pavilion



..and the finest view of Victoria Habour



thanks for making it happen

We continued to Causeway Bay and this where the real adventure of HK began! Hehe, it was already 3 pm and we haven’t eaten anything since breakfast. The roads were so confusing until we met Indonesian lady and lead us to Masjid Ammar and Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre. Not so lucky we were, the canteen was almost close and we only had light menu..aku dah tak selera sebab penat. I caught by this interesting tajuk ceramah at the notice board ; Muslim or Christian: Who is the faithful follower of Jesus?


some street in Hong Kong
The famous Kowloon Mosque (where Indonesian domestic workers made the crowd) located very next to Tsim Sha Tsui station and the Kowloon Park, small version of New York’s Central Park. We spent some time at the HK Heritage Discovery Centre. I found it as a unique exhibition hall, explained me very well (after reading the exhibit) on HK archeological and built heritage. Remember my previous post about the border river between Shenzhen and HK? The plan, creating a mega-city by merging Shenzhen-Hong Kong by 2047…. Ok, this might sound uneducated but, serius sungai tu kecil, cantum je la..huhu.. It seems the plans is now became a crucial issue for China (bila aku google2 balik..hmmm)

Kowloon Park
I love museum but the time was very limited and the day has turned to dusk.. Even so, I might be regret if I never visit the fantastic HK Museum of History.., OMG, it was a remarkable place, constructed at cost of HK$ 390m.. and I lost words to describe.. BEST GILE..jauh juga la berjalan masa ni, kesian ayah.


And there we were at the Avenue of Stars waiting for the Symphony of Lights; the every night light and laser shows. Frankly, the show wasn’t quite as spectacular as expected, fairly entertaining..maybe because of our stand location. Only tonight I found the video on You Tube.

The video just made me miss HK and our vacation.
