Hong Kong : 6D5N – Day 2

Hello day two of HK! We did one touristy stuff on day two. We went to the Nong Ping 360 which is located at Tung Chung Station.

We got ourselves the round trip cable car ride on the CRYSTAL CABIN! Yey! The ticket was HKD169 (Approximately SGD$29). If you ask me, yes it is expensive BUT we’re talking about crystal cabin here and 5.7km cable car ride up! It’s definitely worth it!

We didn’t want to get off the cable car as we find it pointless for us to go out and see the buddha. But we were told that we have to get out and queue up again if we want to go back down. Which was actually a good thing. We managed to have a look at the place. It reminded me so much of Chinese Garden with all the japanese looking buildings. The best thing was that we saw a halal kebab shop, Ebeneezer’s.

The kebabs in HK are quite pricey but we’re too hungry to say no to food. πŸ™‚

And after that, we also dropped by Honeymoon Dessert (right opposite the shop) for some dessert! πŸ™‚

The ride down was super fun! We had the whole cabin to ourselves and we did some self entertaining and lots of waving at strangers along the way. πŸ™‚

Next stop was City Gate Outlets. It’s located at the same MTR station which made it super convenient. πŸ™‚

City Gate Outlets was a disappointment. No wonder everyone told us to not waste our time there. The discounts weren’t that great and the Coach Factory Outlet was too crowded for me to even think and look. 😦 We did however get some clothes at Esprit as they were having 50% off on your second purchase thingy.

Β We then made way to Central Station where Zee dropped by Lush to get some bath soaps for her friend. I was tempted to get one for myself but after much consideration, I did not. One decision I have yet to regret. πŸ™‚

Central station is HK’s CBD area with lots of business men and nicely dressed women. We had a hard time finding Queen’s Road Central where H&M is located at. Some idiot even told us that the road we were on is Queen’s Road Central. WRONG! It took us awhile but we managed to find the place in the end. πŸ™‚

After spending about a hundred dollars at the H&M, we made way down to Longchamp and found out that the shop is closed. 😦

We then took the MTR to Wan Chai to Masjid Ammar and Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre where the Islamic Centre Canteen is located at. We dropped off at Wan Chai Station, took a glance at the map and decided to get to the place on foot. Got lost half way and hopped on the cab. When we reached the place, it was closed. We were 5minutes late for their last order. ):

Got out of the place, hailed a cab and the cab driver told us he don’t know where we want to get to. So we got off the cab and as we were walking, Zee told us that she noticed ‘The Charterhouse” building quite a number of times when we were in the first cab. So we walked through the building and found out that we were actually walking the right way the first time only that we did not make our turn when we had to! Geddit? So getting lost wasn’t a bad thing at all as in the end we learnt how to go to the mosque on our own! Tadaaaa~!

We had turkish food again that night at Istanbul Turkish Kebabs and Grill which is located opposite The Charterhouse building.

So the next time if you want to make way toΒ Masjid Ammar and Osman Ramju Sadick Islamic Centre on foot, get off at Wan Chai Station, exit at A3 Johnston Road, turn left, walk straight on the other side of the road until you see Istanbul Turkish Kebabs and Grill on the left and The Charterhouse building on the right, walk into the carpark of The Charterhouse building which will lead you to another road and walllllahhhh~ you’ll see the mosque. πŸ™‚

Here’s a break down of day 2:

Nong Ping 360 – Tung Chung Station – 2-way Crystal Cabin = HKD 169 = SGD$29.
