#ILOVEHK14 DAY1

I know I know, the irritating me have been posting all the places I went in parts and it really makes people want to punch me, so here you have the itinerary for #ILOVEHK14 DAY1 ! 


Actually I was in Hong Kong before I went Bangkok in the same week. My bad, I decided realised that the dates were THAT near. (Lucky my leave was approved). As usual, I took Scoot (again) for the trip to Hong Kong. Major thanks to Fen's dad for sending us to the airport for our midnight. We took the opportunity to upgrade our seats to ScootBiz since it was only SGD $14 per pax. It was our first time experience the *ahem* Business class , and my partners' first time with a budget airline.



We touched down  at Hong Kong International Airport 6 am in the morning and there's really nothing much we can do at that hour. We proceed on to what we called our "admin time", which means preping ourselves like wash up, make up and everything miscellaneous. The mobile store opens at 7am, and we just waited outside for it, quickly grab our SIM Cards and head to the city!



It is also cheaper to buy airport express tickets in groups, if you are traveling alone you might want to ask any family/ groups around you if they want to share with you. It is cheaper for everyone anyway!

We took the express train to Hong Kong Station which gave us at least a whole good 15 minutes to nap. 


What can you do after you alight at the Hong Kong station?
Go and queue for Tim Ho Wan! 
We were really kiasu people and we reach there even before it was open, & it means that we are the first in line!!!!! 
We made friends with the other tourists behind us and we had so much fun talking to them.








Address : Shop 12A, Hong Kong Station (Podium Level 1, IFC Mall) , Central
Nearest MTR : Hong Kong Station

Since we were at Central, I had to bring them to my favourite Starbucks outlet. 
I don't even know why I liked it so much, perhaps for it's decor ? 
It is about 10-15 minutes walk from IFC to Duddell Street, so it is quite convenient. #routine







Address : Floor M2, Baskerville House, 13 Duddell Street, Central

Nearest MTR: Central Station



After our early tea break, we went to our choice of accommodation - HopInn to check in and rest for awhile.Yup, some admin time before our next appointment. We usually book the one at Carnarvon, mainly because of the safety at night. Not that the other one is bad or inconvenient, just it gets a bit messy over that side in the evening. Carnarvon Street is also nearer to the neighborhood malls like the One where and K11 where we did most of our grocery shopping. Stayed there during the previous trip too (individually), since we have three humans for this trip, our room is slightly bigger and a cooler theme. We had charcoals on our walls too wtf.

 
Address: 9/F James S. Lee Mansion, 33-35 Carnarvon Road, |Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon,

We had an appointment with  Fenny's friend, a fellow blogger/ PR/ writer in Hong Kong, at a cat cafe located in Causeway Bay - Cat Store. My maiden visit to a Cat cafe.

We skipped lunch because we were really too full from all the dimsum and starbucks so we had light snacks at the Cat Store. Good enough to last us till dinner time. 

Shopped around at Causeway Bay and went back to Tsim Sha Tsui for dinner. Junz had like a mini craving for instant noodles so we went Lan Fong Yuen for Dinner! Major loves for the place and it is one of the places I personally like and will go every time.
