HK | Take Two

Yay, happy to be back on blogging before the year ends.
Got a super hectic schedule in school and work that's why it took me awhile before posting my recent trip.

And yep, so happy to be back in the happiest place on earth after so many years, 6 years to be exact. :-)

This travel was special to me because for the first time, I'm traveling with my family (sister Zel, Aunt Amy and cousin/inaanak Vhea).  And special shout out to my sis bff Bhernz for being our host here in HK.

Date of Travel: October 30-Nov. 3, 2016

***Our dates of travel were declared Philippine holidays due to All Soul's Day and All Saint's Day.  You can see Filipinos everywhere in Hongkong who were also taking their vacations.

Let's get lost in Hongkong.

Nathan Road, Mongkok
Bound to see Mickey again :-)

DAY 0 - Arrival at Terminal 1-HK

Arrived at around 8PM and checked in at Sun Hing Building, 607 Nathan Road, Mongkong, Hongkong - booked via Airbnb.
Our place was convenient and accessible from everything that we need - malls, convenient stores, restos, MTR and bus station.

DAY 1 - HK DISNEYLAND

Welcome to the happiest place on earth where I can be a kid over and over again.

HK's Octopus Card: can be used in the bus, MTR, taxi or even in 7 11.  I got this card 6 years ago during my first HK visit and guess what? I can still use the card, they just refreshed my card and I reloaded it.  Yay, it was really a big help :-) 
And we are going to Disneyland!!!! - Vhea, Tita Amy, Zel and Bhernz

LAST NIGHT IN HK/BACK TO MANILA

We took A21 bus from Mongkong going to the airport, and we were on time, no traffic, kudos....

Here's a little secret.  It's my first time to fly with Cathay Pacific, haha.  It was so nice and comfy plus there was food, yay, that made them a winner for me :-)

Say hello to my new travel buddy :-)
Good bye for now HK, till we meet again :-)

Love and light to all :-)
