Hola everyone! The month of June is officially ending tomorrow and yes, we’re almost done for the first half of the year 2016! How cool and fast is that? 🙂 Praise the Lord for the first half of the year!
There’s has been so much going on in the Philippines and in fact, tomorrow, is the inauguration of the incoming President Rodrigo Duterte ( is it going to be declared a public holiday or not tomorrow? let’s just wait and see for the official declaration within the day 🙂 )
And speaking of holiday, we just got back from a long vacation from Hongkong! We’re just really excited when we are there and we tried our best to collect and collect a lot of good memories together as husband and wife. It is one of our first goals to go out of the country as husband and wife, for us to experience traveling together in abroad for leisure/ vacation purposes/ relaxation purposes. And we definitely had a great time! Just like what the Bible says: ” So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.Ecclesiastes 8:15 “ … Indeed, we did it! 🙂
I can’t count how many malls or how many tourist spots we had a chance to visit but to list a few, these are as follows. I also indicated there some description of the places we visited so if you are planning to visit Hongkong, this places you can also check out! 🙂
- Hongkong Disneyland- Enter a magical kingdom inspired by fairy-tale dreams and explore 7 lands—Adventureland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A.—filled with beauty, excitement and Disney Characters.
- Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car – one of Hong Kong’s premier attractions and, while not cheap, if you’re in town for a few days it really shouldn’t be missed. The big pull of the Ngong Ping Cable Car is the breathtaking views over the thick green peaks of Lantau and the shining South China Sea. At the top of the cable car ride awaits the amazing 110ft Tian Tan Giant Buddha, one of the biggest in the world.
- Sky100 – On the 100th floor of Hong Kong’s tallest building – the International Commerce Centre (ICC) – you’ll find sky100. This is the highest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong and offers visitors a stunning 360 degree bird’s-eye view of world-famous Victoria Harbour.
- Nathan Road – Probably Hong Kong’s most photographed street, Nathan Road is the showcase for the city’s iconic, neon advertising signs. Crammed in at every angle and hanging off every building, the signs are a testament to Nathan Road’s role as the commercial heart of Tsim Sha Tsui.
- Victoria Harbour – is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. The harbour’s deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong’s establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre.
- Harbour City – a large shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. It is part of a series of office blocks and hotels. It comprises several parts: Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre (with 1980s retro decor), the Gateway and the Pacific Club Kowloon. The complex is located along the west side of Canton Road, stretching from the Star Ferry Pier in the south to China Hong Kong City in the north.
- Star Ferry – a passenger ferry service operator and tourist attraction in Hong Kong. Its principal routes carry passengers across Victoria Harbour, between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon
- Citygate Outlet – Hong Kong’s first—and only—outlet mall. Outlets in the mall currently offer year-round discounts of 30-70% on all merchandise. It is in Tung Chung, above Tung Chung MTR Station, which is the terminus of the Tung Chung Line.
- ISquare – The 31-storey complex offers 56,000 square meters of space, with renowned brands of Watches & Jewelry, Fashion & Accessories, Beauty & Health, Lifestyle & Entertainment, and Supermarket & Department Store located at the shopping podium
- Mongkok Ladies Market – The street probably started out as a street where the local women went shopping for bargain clothing, small household items, and stuff that typically women would shop for.
- Cheung Chau Island- southwest of Hong Kong Island. It is nicknamed the ‘dumbbell island (啞鈴島)’ due to its shape.
- Tung Wan Beach – when you visit here, you will feel that you are in Hawaii because it has this Hawaii beach vibes 🙂
And there, this is just a few of the places that we visited 🙂 What did we learn or get from this trip? We’ll it’s the memries that we can treasure and share to our children up to the future. The world is too big to stay in one place and there is so much more to see and experience. We are just so thankful to God for this well time of enjoyment and relaxation.
So there, until my next blog fellas, I do hope that you are all encourage to go out there… make some good memories… and do not spend your time dealing with some negative thoughts and just be thankful because God is always giving you a chance to go and have your very own adventure 🙂
