Day 1 in Hong Kong
(Myself, Joyce, Brother Jireh, Daniel and Rudy) 
Hong Kong is a place where transportation is easily accessible.
There are MTR, Taxis and buses everywhere.

Many of my friend advice us to take Airport Express as it is convenient, but truly it is only advisable when your hotel stays is along Airport to Kowloon mtr station line.
For us, since our hotel is nearby Jordan mtr station,
From Airport to Jordan, we are required to transfer 2 times, Airport-Kowloon-Jordan. It creates hassle as to carry our baggages around and estimate arrival to our hotel is about 1hr 30min.

Hence, we went to Airport bus terminal and took bus A22 which cost HK$39 instead of taking airport express which cost HK$79.
It is cheaper than Airport Express and hasslefree by no transferring of mtr stations.
We arrived within an hour as we alighted at the bus stop opposite to where we are staying. 

Check-in Pandora Hotel
 
 As the hotel was located in a building 9F to 12F, we missed the signage directed us to the building (The signboard wasn't that obviously seen). but the hotel was conveniently located along nathan road with many shops and eatery around the vicinity. We didn't expect our hotel room for 5 paxs were so small. But at least, the room and toilet was clean and the facilities were in good working condition.

Touring around by MTR
For those gadgets collectors, Apliu street is the place that you should visit.
There were stalls selling vintage computers, cameras and other technology. And across the street is
Cheung Sha Wan road, my mum and aunt will love to shop here if they come as the fashion style is more suitable for their age group. 

Thereafter, we came to Tim Ho Wan for dinner
Famous for their dim sum
We have ordered a table of dim sum.
Usually, dim sum is more for breakfast but we took it as dinner.
Yummy!
In Hong Kong, our mission is to eat, shop, play!
Dessert after diiner nearby Tim Ho Wan.
The dessert shop was graceous enough to provide free wifi, drinks and chocolate fondus.
As well, their desserts were really good!


 

After dinner, we went to famous shopping district - Mongkok,
For those shoppers out there, Ladies street night market, a place that you should visit.
You may grab items like cosmetics, bags, clothes, souvenir...etc. And along the street, they were found lot of stalls that can quench your thirst and cease your hunger. Selling food and drinks!
Eat anywhere and everywhere. 
Recently, people were afraid or trying avoid travelling to Hong Kong due to its protest. We were also alittle cautious as well due to the situation. Although, it was kinda stress to walk around the district, but we still do enjoy ourselve there. Most of the shops were opened and the protestor did not really came to disturb us.

Some snaps at the protest area at 9.30pm

Some protestor are singing and entertaining themselve
The main road was blocked
Saw many tourist walking around, it doesn't seen to be that bad after all.
 People increase gradually in that area, usually past midnight when the shops were closed.
How do I know it? While watching TV show in hotel, we have noticed a small box beside the screen. They actually placed a surveillance camera in Mongkok to monitor the situation for their civilian.
 Hence, Hong Kong citizen may know the situation before they head off to there.
