Hong Kong - Day 4
Another journey of my life reached its destination. Day 4 was my final day in Hong Kong. Picture above is a memorial view from the window of my room, a cozy room in a student resident complex of the City university of Hong Kong. Jason helped us carrying luggages all the way from the resident downhill for 15 minutes to MCR (Kowloon Tong Station) change the underground twice and go to Hong Kong Station on Hong Kong Island for the Airport express. I was very impressed by his kindness and was pretty sad to say goodbye to him. Yes, farewell my another good friend.
Afterthat, we took the Airport express. It is quite a comfortable service and finally we reached the airport on time.... Hey, no no my journey has not stop yet. It is just a beginning! I only went to send K. Aun+ back to England (he he) and then I still continued my journey afterward. I had got many planes and there are many places in Hong Kong that I still want to visit.
The first place that I planed to visit is the Polin Monastery that located in the same island as the airport. To go there, I had to take the bus to Toong Loong station. The bus was very cheap and only took 25 minutes to reach there... Unfortunately... It was raining
So, the plan had to be changed... umm... I was thinking and decided to take a train back to Hong Kong Island! Travelling in the city in the bad weather should have many options (I guess)... So sad that I could not go to Polin Monastry but it is good that there remains a place to visit if I have a chance to come here next time.
The underground station was quite less crowded during the working day. Lucky me! So, I took some chance to take nice photos in the underground (I almost mad enough to travel to all stations in Hong Kong Island to have a glance of the underground arts, i.e. one station, one bright colour, but have not got time to do so).
The other destination that I visited is Tin Hau Temple (the one that I planed to visit with K. Aun+ in Day 3 but too tired to go there). The temple was pretty small but quite nicely decorated with a number of cute dolls and worth having a glance if you have got time (but not much a compulsary trip).
My next destination is the Expo street where there is a famous golden status and the Chinese flags refecting that Hong Kong has already been completedly handed over from Britain to China. Yes, it is the place around the beautiful (Sydney's look-a-like) opera house.
I put some tripod to take my self-photograph here but unsuccess (due to too many tourist walking around). So, I gave up and decided to share you only the view as usual. If you notice, you may found that the weather is nice already! Poor me, I should have gone to Polin Monastery but it was too late to do so...
After that, I walked along the pier and just realised that it was pretty late and I have to go back to the central station (to find a yummy snack). Unfortunately, my feet were too hurt and I had to walk slower than I calculated so I reached the central station a bit late and could not go to buy the snowy moon cake... May be next time (I hope)
Finally, I came back to the airport (again) on-time. It was a great memory coming here, I thought. Looking back to my experience... Hong Kong is not a bad place to visit (I used to think that it has nothing here except a place to shop, but I was wrong). Hong Kong has something... the plan of development made me realized in the power of good political rule, the tourist, the system and so on... Oh... thinking of this, I just have realised that I had not experienced shopping brand-name stuffs in Hong Kong at all (ha ha).
