Hong Kong Trip 2009 – Day Two (Part I)

They woke up on Day Two without so much of a concrete plan for the morning breakfast. And the fact that the neighborhood looked pretty dead didn’t help much.

Eventually they settled in for a dim sum shop nearby the hotel which he had rather not speak much about. And that should say a lot.

Anyway, the plan of the day was simple, shop in the morning and early afternoon, and conquer Disneyland afterwards until night time.

The first and only outlet mall in Hong Kong, Citygate Outlets is home to many international brands offering great discounts. Located in the heart of Tung Chung, directly adjacent to Tung Chung MTR and Lantau bus terminal, Citygate Outlets is only a station away from Disneyland, which makes it the ideal shopping heaven for the missus.

Decided to have a quick lunch at McDonald after the shopping. Love the Iced Milk Tea and Shogun Burger.

Off to Disneyland!

Already, the presence of Disneyland’s magic was felt the moment you stepped into the train. Childhood memories flashed in an instant. Because they had bought the tickets the night before at the booth in The Peak (HKD350 per pax), they saved the hassle of queuing up once they reached.

Probably the must-have photo session in Disneyland. They queued for more than 20 minutes. The line at Goofy’s corner was almost non-existent.

Yet another Mickey and Minnie session.

Mickey and Minnie donned their trademark costume, and the missus had changed hers too (not too flattering for Minnie though).

Getting late, but thankfully, it’s the Halloween season (September 18 to October 31) which meant the opening hour was extended to 11pm instead of the usual 7.30pm. More to come in Part II.
