28 January 2013, Monday. 

It's the 4th day since we step on Hong Kong land. 
It's Monday, we chose today to visit one of the Hong Kong must visit theme park - OCEAN PARK.
Hoping that not so crowded since it was a working day. 
Well, let me bring you to Ocean Park Hong Kong today !

First and foremost, energized up with a nutritious breakfast !

After breakfast, we headed to the bus station for Ocean Park.
Although it was a Monday, but look at the crowd ! Long queue ! 

Fortunately, the bus services are very efficient, we could get on a bus quickly.

The MTR is still under construction, it will be much easier later to reach Ocean Park by MTR.

So, here we are ! Ocean Park Hong Kong !

Welcome by the Sea Lion.

Ocean Park, of course here for ocean's creature.
Many different type of ocean's creatures stay in this big aquarium. The diver was cleaning the tank.

Main mission of today's trip - Visit Jia Jia and An An -- The giant panda !
Pandas are mingle in the park! 
Here's the real Pandas !




 If the panda stay in the room, we will only able to see them through this CCTV screen.

But we are lucky enough to see the real panda having their meal.
It's so cute, just like a giant soft toy munching their favourite bamboo.


Mission 2 : Visit Jia Jia and An An -- The Giant Panda (Mission Accomplished!)

After visiting the giant panda, we proceed to a restaurant nearby to have our lunch !
Panda pau was found here ! Cute, but taste is just so so.

An old Hong Kong Street is located right opposite the Panda Restaurant.
Many old stuff could be found here.
Let's go ! Move faster ! 
Many of these building were seen in old Hong Kong movies/drama.

Tradition of Hongkies.

Old time double decker tram.

Before leaving to another part of Ocean Park...

Sshhh ~ it's Jack's birthday today, I've specially arrange Mr. Crocodile to wish him...



Panda wishes him have a healthy and peaceful years ahead !

haha.. a childhood dream finally achieved? Spent your birthday in Ocean Park !

Proceed to train station for a ride to the other part of Ocean Park.
With some lighting effect during the journey, makes you feel like you are going through the sea.

Here's for the dolphin show !

Hello Penguins !


Swim like a plane - Seals

~*~*~*~
Before leaving, took a ride on Ocean Park Tower to have a panorama view of whole park.

That's end our journey in Ocean Park.

The sun had already gone down, time for dinner.
We took a cab to Temple Street to look for food.

Was trying to find the yummy claypot rice that we had 5 years ago.
Searching everywhere, nothing similar found.

Stop by a herbal tea shop and ask for direction.

We were directed to a shop which located 2 streets away, ahhh.. tired ~!

Finally, here we are.
Unfortunately, we could not locate the previous shop.
Claypot rice with some side orders.

Another tired day in Hong Kong has passed...

In Love with Hokkaido の The Fantasy Town - OTARU (小樽)

After impressed by the breathtaking view of flowers sea, in my heart was thinking, I had done the most important visit in Hokkaido, therefore, I did not expect any other thing to impress me further. But, I was wrong, the places that we are going today has given me surprises, one by one.
Yesterday was too tired of running after the sea of flowers, I was consider fainted in the hotel room at night. Haha.. Luckily, this morning when I wake up, I felt refreshed!
As we are in the city today, I decided to dress up colorfully, you will see in the photos later, haha, guess I will not wear the same combination back at my home country. :-P
Breakfast! This hotel does not has a large hall for dining, guests have to line up to wait for empty table. This was my first experience that have to line up for hotel breakfast! Yet, the food that served were just so so.

This morning, we are early to get on the bus as we do not want to rush like yesterday and make everybody waited for us.
The bus start movi…

~ HOME ~

Was here last weekend with a bunch of crazy friends, it is located a Banda Hilir, Melaka, just about 10 minutes walking distance to Dataran Pahlawan. 

As there is no "TURN IN HERE" signage at the junction, we had missed the junction and had to make a big round to come back here coz its a one way street. For the 2nd time, contacted the friend who been here before, after passing Hotel Equatorial, must slow down and look for the building of "Huang Association", right after the building, there is this small road turning in to the left (the road is VERY small, its just a lorong actually, ngam ngam for 1 car to pass only). 
Finally, we had reached the destination. Was welcomed by a great smile by Ms. Rebecca aka Becky, there were a couple sitting at the living hall, Becky introduced them to us too! She then guide us to to our chalet -- Ixora.…
