Dear all,

I’m writing to share with my recent trip in Hong Kong.

The first afternoon, I went to the Ocean Park.

Watching the dolphin’s performance couldn’t help reminding me the first time I went to HK, should be 12 years ago. I still keep the photo of the dolphin fly hitting the red balloon.

there’re cableways everywhere, but it looks quite long here; my previous Hong Kong colleagues asked us why we would like to go to the Ocean Park during the weekend within 2 weeks training, that was in year 1998?

I can’t remember how I answered that time though, I just like it, I like the place with both of mountain and sea, I like green, I like the atmosphere with ease.

The second morning, I went to The Stanley.

It is so good to be seated the first row of upper parts of 6X bus, to experience the wandering mountain road one side with sea on the other side.   

I envy the people living in The Stanley, fresh air, few people, calm place, especially comparing with downtown of Hong Kong. One stop away from famous Repulse Bay, not sure whether it would cost people much less to stay here.

Only kind of pity, it took me quite some time to find my girlfriend at hotel, for she has double first names after her marriage.

My girlfriend is the marketing person in one of my previous company, we know each other for about 9 years, only she went to Germany few years ago.

It is quite romantic to meet the friend at the third party city.  

My girlfriend and I went to Cheung Chau , “long Island" that afternoon. My girlfriend went there once 8 years ago and I have never been there before.

Honestly speaking, I do not like it that much right after we arrived the island, I like Putuo island though I went there almost once per year. Putuo is one of the four famous Buddhism islands in China, it is nothing to do with temple, Buddhism, etc, but I enjoy its’ nature.  

More we walked to the top, more we like it, for few and few people, you would not feel you are in Hong Kong. sometimes, you could also look at the Hong Kong island over the sea at top.

 

On the way, we saw the notice that 45 million HK$ which would be released that night which is quite attractive for us. The girl sitting behind the desk smiling with one tooth lost at the right, trying best to explain the rules to us in mandarin, a very very sweet girl. We bought some lottery to try the luck, then on the way again.

We following the map leading to Alleged hiding place of Cheung Po Tsai , a famous 19th century pirate. It is a small cave, said to be the place where he stored his treasure. We would like to go into the cave though, after studying, we gave up per the guide book’s instruction. We also felt we should buy the lottery after we reached the cave. And it proves that we are right.  

On the way back, we climbed to one big stone, sitting, watching the island other side across the sea with no any hindrance. It looks like a laying Buddha, just as I’m standing at Putuo island observing LuoJia Mountain other side.

We found a better part to lie down, to avoid the creeping crabs, Chinese snails, (螺丝)to listen to the sound of sea, to watch the sunset gradually, to enjoy the silence…

There should be some ferry to take us back to the dock, but it is too late to have any. We walked back to the dock, and ate some dessert to rest ourselves on the way.

I never know before they could cook bean curd in sweet? Interesting.

only the sea food is not delicious at all, but you do not always have chance to sit along the seashore to talk with your girlfriend, watching the sea in dark.

We enjoy the time of seating the outside of upper parts of ferry when we were on the way back to Hong Kong Island, seeing the island with light smaller and smaller, much and much blurry, and disappeared finally;

talking in dark with light wind, especially when it was near to Hong Kong, left side is the marvelous night view and the view of Tsing Ma Bridge at the right, the world's sixth largest suspension bridge.

After buying some ice cream, wine, snacks, we walked back to the hotel. 

I had pleasant memory in Macau 10 years ago, for I win around 400 US$, and I could still remember the last game, I won HK$ 1,200 at HK$ 50. this should be a big won, for the people at the desk of the gambling place took some money as the tip without my approval. I won this by my brain, or luck?

My girlfriend has never come to Macau before, so, we went there on Oct. 01st, honestly speaking, very disappointed for the city view.  

We went back to Hong kong much earlier than we planned, after having the delicious dinner, my girlfriend took me around Central Mid-Level's Escalator.

I would like to go the full way of Central Mid-Level’s Escalator, for the view of the Escalator, the view around Escalator were in many movies, like “Chungking Mansions , or Chungking express”, and her director, , Wong Kar-wai; my idol, Tony Leung Chiu Wai, they both stayed at the middle way of Central.

But since my girlfriend has been here many many times, so, we only stepped onto the Escalator for around 5 minutes. I would definitely go the full way by myself next time.  

My girlfriend also took me around Lan Kwai Fong, Hollywood Road, SoHo. I even saw one bar named “Joyce Is Not Here”, only there’re several persons at the bar, so, I did not take picture finally after hesitation. (I had one photo taken in Paris, with the background of “Yin’s Coffee” )

There’s fireworks performance from 21:00 – 21:27 the night of Oct. 01st. We went to the 11th floor of the hotel, the shared swimming pool garden of Renaissance Harbor View Hotel and Hyatt Hotel.

The last time I saw the performance is the time APEC meeting in Shanghai, over the television; and this time, too beautiful to be expressed by words, I also like the bombing sound, so loud to remind me I am at the real site.

Till around 22:15, when there’re not many people on the road any more, we went out to a farer convenience store to buy some wine, ice cream, snacks, sitting at the room, laying our legs on the windowsill, facing the harbor, talking to late.

The final morning, we had a big buffet at the hotel and went out to airport, departure to home separately.

I did not expect for such a happy ending before, there’re only 11 persons at the air??!! I had a nap full flight.

this is the fourth time for me in Hong Kong, I’m happy I could still have wonderful memory, not like every closer girlfriend around me, they went there at least 20 times every one, but no one likes it.  

I also print out “to travel in Hong Kong following top 10 scenes in the movies”, I would leave it till next time, but I dig out every Hong Kong Movies I have at home, selecting some I would like to review again during the holiday.

 Cheers, Joyce
