Day 4 - Lantau Island / Yau Ma Tei / Mongkok

29 November 2008 (Saturday)

E4, LCC and I had an early breakfast at the restaurant nearby before heading to Lantau Island.

We took MTR from Mongkok to Tung Chung. Once reach Tung Chung MTR, we followed sign board to Ngong Ping 360 cable car station. To Giant Buddha, you can either take bus 23 or cable car. Since today not many people queue up for cable car, we bought a round-trip package to Giant Buddha which cost HK$88.

While waiting for cable car, this lil boy try to play hide and seek with me. So cute! We even sit in the same cable car. Wahaha! =P

Scenery from cable car. Sunny day.

Once reached destination, we first passed by Ngong Ping Tea House and Ngong Ping market.

We ate 山水磨石豆腐花 at one of the kopitiam when on our way to Giant Buddha. The sugar is in yellow color.

Po Lin Monastery:

Giant Buddha just right in front of Po Lin Monastery. I'm at the foot of Giant Buddha.

Now we have half way to reach Giant Buddha.

Finally we're at the top. Yeah! Mission completed! ;P

Some photos taken at the top:

Wisdom path, which lead us to the way that can gain more wisdom. I just did my wisdom tooth extraction surgery, so I definitely need some wisdom back! =P Crap!

Way back to Tung Chung MTR. We shopped around at CityGate - the shopping complex that near to Tung Chung MTR. A lot of branded outlet in it. We shopped around until 4pm. LCC and I bought a pair of NB shoes respectively. I found it cheap, that's why I buy it! Only HK$ 189. The NB shoes I wearing for trip now already costs me RM150++. I am NB's fan! =P

After shopping, we went back to Mongkok. In MTR, we saw a lil cute baby girl. She just sit right beside us. SO sweet! How come today I meet so many cute baby girl and boy! =P

We bought some biscuits in 奇华饼家. After that we have our dessert at 发记甜品 that recommended by LCC's HK colleagues. We orded durian pancake that also higly recommended by her colleagues. It is so delicious.

At night, we wandered around at Temple Street. Nothing special to see or buy. So we decided visit Fa Yuen Street.

Before bed time, LCC and I went to Hui Lau Shan dessert house again. E4 is too tired, so she just slept at hostel.
