Took a few pictures of our top 3 HK idols. Hail Jackie Chan & Stephen Chow for the endless laughter and for being a great ambassador of cantonese films. Aaron Kwok? For the legendary centre parting hairstyle, all the rage back in our school days. He totally owned it!
Next morning, it was Tsim Sha Tsui station as we bought our Octopus ticket and Mrs. Field’s cookies. We then took the train down to Admiralty Station.There was a counter selling both the Entry and CityBus(629) Ticket.
The Ocean Park cable car ride was long. I liked the open windows, feeling the breeze and such. Felt like a bird in a cage moment. 2 birds. Wife was panicky as usual, holding onto the rails real tight throughout. I felt like jumping around in this cage.
It was hot summer, and extremely crowded. There was the Hot Air Balloon, Sky Tower and many more. I bumped into 1 of my workplace canteen stall owners there at the Giant Panda Souvenir store. He was with his family, what a small world. Oh yes, the pandas wer extremely adorable. Most were busy eating and munching non-stop. The red panda was elusive though. We did not manage to see it, only the tails, as they were lying in the their tiny caves.
We somehow managed to walk our way to the mosque. I have included the map below. We were not sure if Wan Chai or Admiralty would be better, but it the Causeway Bay route seems pretty short and it was mainly underpass. We met some muslim ladies along the way too, so it should be alright.
The canteen was located in the masjid. There was a notice pasted in the elevator; “The elevator buttons have been disinfected every 2 hours.” Having found the canteen we proceeded to eat. Little did we expect that we will be eating here for many days to come. Highly recommended for muslims! No Hong Kong trip will be complete without a halal dim-sum meal here.
