Hong Kong (part 1)

This a a long overdue fact I have sooooo many of them..hehe..

Alhamdulliah I got the chance to visit few places this year, and travelling so far has been a great deal of an experience for me.

Like I've been 'kecoh'kan in my previous post, I went to Hong Kong few weeks back. This time not with husband neither friends nor family. This time it was soooo much different cos it was my first trip with the company. That means everything has already been arranged by the company...the flight, the accommodation, the food, the name it!!..I just have to bring my passport, clothes to wear, money for shopping and an umbrella for was rainy season in Hong Kong.

We stayed there for 4 days and 3 night. Company had arranged a MAS flight early in the morning...Did you know that there were 2 flights full of Premium Beautiful entrepreneurs????..awesome rightt!!!

Dah la it was sooo much fun going with a bunch of girls that loooooovvesssss shopping, and to add more excitement, we sepakat to wear baju with the same colour scheme...

On the first day, we decided to go for green!!

Before boarding off the was early in the morning, but everybody seemed to be very much elated

Gambar ni terang sikit.. :) captured by Hafiz Atan (Candid Syndrome)...jgn terkejut..dia pon buat business jual corset tau ;p


There was no difference between Malaysian time and the Hong Kong local time. The journey took abut 4 hours and we reached there around noon. Since we had a heavy breakfast on the flight, first place they brought us was The Ladies Market.

Ladies Market basically is just like Petaling Street in KL. You can find lots of  souveniers here with the prices you can bargain. But please bear in mind that the local vendors are quite 'harsh' and they do not like the attitude of not buying anything after you have bargain :)  

While waiting for the rain to settle, we all pg mkn fruit dessert

It was raining all day, but shopping tetap shopping!..hehe.

After an hour spent shopping at The Ladies Market, (which can never be enough!!), we headed to Arena of Stars which was located at Victoria Harbour. Victoria harbour separates Hong Kong island from Kowloon. Here, you can find Bruce Lee's half-naked statue..hehe..and also all the famous Hong Kong artist's hand prints..well, apparently, I only kenal Jackie Chan, Maggie Cheung, and Andy Lau..haha. A must visit place in Hong Kong. Apart from that, you can enjoy a night scenery of the city along the harbour..perfect for photo taking especially those with DSLR camera..(definitely not me!LOL). Hence, the pictures are all blurry and irritating ;p
Victoria Harbour

Husband's favourite :)

Next, we hopped on a Big Bus Tour that brought us strolling along the city. Imagine time tu hujan still renyai2, terpaksa la we all pakai raincoat. Sejuk pulak tu..With the bus tour, you can roughly see how busy the city is...kiri kanan buildings..and semuanya tinggi-tinggi.

First day was packed with activities, after Isha then only we were brought to the hotel. Our company had been soo kind and generous to us by providing a luxury place for us to stay on!. We stayed at L'Nina Hotel, a 4 star hotel located at Tsuen Wan, which got a very good reviews from TripAdvisor. Well, if I were to travel to Hong Kong with husband, we would have pick the cheapest hotel..hehe. Thanks to Premium Beautiful business, I got this chance for some luxurious r&r :)

The next day, everybody dresses in blue!!

Second day in Hong Kong was meant to be spent in DISNEYLAND...all day loongg. Suddenly everbody jumping like a kid. Ye la, for someone like me first time pg Disneyland kaannn, haruslah jakuuunn ;p If you guys are coming here on your own, you can take the train straight to Disneyland, very easy to find, eventhough majority of the locals have trouble in conversing in English.

Pixie Hollow pon jadila...sbb queue nak bergambar dengan Mickey and Minney panjang gila

Me and my friends did not spend a lot of time in Disneyland pon..Being us, we cabut lari amik train pg shopping complex!!..haha. We went somewhere near Nathan Road, the oldest road in Kowloon. It's a shopping heaven I tell you!!! can find almost anything here!!..including all the brands that are not available in Malaysia. Cheaper than Malaysia.. :) itu yang penting. Everything is tax free in Hong Kong..sebab tu la murah.

Semua grabbed Gucci sales

Jakun sikit :) it was a talking directory!!!

Hanis and Kak Mai inside Chanel

Hanis and her never ending shopping bags..and me with my Miu Miu..loving it!! ;)

SASA in Hong Kong unlike Malaysia..they carry most of luxury toiletries and facial care...SKll murah!!..and parfumes too!!

Locoste for husband..nice leather bag for ibu..clothes for ayah and siblings and Miu Miu for me :)

My favourite...laddle from Disneyland..hehe..masaknya tidak!!..haha..

Day 2 ended here..habiskan duit buat shopping...hehe. But puas rasa, bawak pocket money purely for shopping cos the rest has been settled by the company..awesome!! :)

Day 3 and 4 in Hong Kong to be continued in the next entry..this is too long already :)

Stay tune.. ;p
