Since it’s already October, I was reminded of another tour I’ve had in the past. It was my second time to travel outside the Philippines and was really excited since I’ll be fulfilling a childhood dream 🙂
October 13, 2012
It was 15 minutes before 7am so we need to Hurry! We really have to hurry! It took us a long while to reach Clark International airport and our flight is at 7am. I was with Te Veck and Ya Rex and after settling fees at the airport, we were able to board the plane. 1 and a half hours passed and we arrived at the Hong Kong International Airport. We gathered our checked-in bags and bought entrance tickets to the tourist spots we’ll be visiting plus the octopus card which was able to bring us to a lot of places.
We boarded an A22 double decker and reached Regal Oriental Hotel at Kowloon before lunch time. It was my first time to ride at the front which made it easy to take a lot of pictures and even videos 🙂
After having biscuits and noodles and some freshening up, we proceeded to the bus stop and travel to their train station and reach the Central Station where we met fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses. 🙂
At the Central Station we had to walk going to the Peak and be part of the long queue of tourists who will board the Peak Tram.

Bubba Gump Restaurant at the Peak
Since we’re already famished, we tried the delicacies found at the restaurant made famous by Tom Hanks’ movie.
Sight-seeing and picture-taking followed. People from all around the world sat together and enjoyed the scenery.
Had a throbbing temple afterwards, maybe because of the change in temperature since it was somewhat hot and I’m used to the weather in Baguio City where October is cool. My head was really painful, I thought I will collapse, but prayer really helped. One downside, we had a hard time talking to the locals in English regarding how we can return to our hotel. Despite the headache, we reached our hotel after walking almost 2 kilometers. What a night! I had a long and dreamless sleep afterwards.
Stay tuned for the continuation of my vacation in Hong Kong. 🙂
