Hong Kong is funner the second time around!

Hong Kong was my first out of the country trip. It was 2011, I was in 3rd year college then, when I first went there with my best friend's sister. That's why Hong Kong will always be memorable for me.

6 years later, I went back but this time I was with my long-time friends and classmates since preschool. It was our second trip together as a trio. Our first trip together was three years ago in Bangkok, Thailand. Since it was both their first time in HK, I was the one in charge with the itinerary and I became their human Google maps because my two friends were so efficient that they gave all the job to me in finding which directions, train and train stations, etc. we should go to. (Hi Wei and Nhx! Can you smell sarcasm over here? HAHAHA love you!)

On our first day, we explored Tsim Sha Tsui area since our hotel was just within the area. We walked around Kowloon Park, Harbour City, and Victoria Harbour.

Then we watched the Symphony of Lights but we were disappointed because we expected more. Expectation really ruins everything, huh? At the end of the lights show, all of us were like "That was it already???"

Second day was allotted for DisneyLand! It was gloomy that day and rain was in the forecast but it didn't stop us from channeling the Disney kids in us.

On our third day, we went around HK's SOHO district, Hollywood Road, Pottinger Street and shopping at night market.

It's crazy and exciting whenever I travel with friends especially with my HK buddies because they are always game for anything may it be grabbing some drinks at a nearby bar, buying snacks every now and then no matter how much we complain how broke we are or just simply going at any random place wherever our feet take us.

To these two long-time friends of mine, here's to more travels together in the future! Cheers to more than two decades of crazy friendship! :)
