Oh boy, there goes my procrastination and half a year has passed since I made up my mind to comeback to the world of blogging. Many things have happened along the way and I am beginning to question myself if I like what I am doing at the moment. Yet, it stuck as an utter dilemma till now.. BUT I am going to put all those aside and share with you guys about Hong Kong as promised in my last post.
So.. one of the famous things to do in Hong Kong is to have a good meal of dim sum! Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine prepared as small bite-sized portions of food served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. These dishes are usually served with tea, and together form a full tea breakfast/brunch.
As you see, the dim sum sizes are HUGEEEEE! Taste wise is great, pretty much a scrumptious meal for the day. One thing I find disappointing is the attitude of their restaurant staff. Not sure if it was because we are foreigners or due to the fact that we are not travelling with any elderly, the service was bad and rude till they realized we made quite an order of food.
In comparison to the other tables whom mostly are local people, our order in the above picture is 3 times more than what they ordered as my little brother has the appetite of a giant. And upon that realization, their attitude changed 360 degrees!! Kinda stink that they will only be attentive and deliver good service after they realize you have the cash to spend there.
Moving on, we took the bus and spent the day in one of their must go themed parks, Ocean Park!
Gotten our tickets at a cheaper price from our hotel uncle but you can also purchase online via their website here.

I am just going to share a few photos from the park as we were busy having too much fun and this park is enormous. If you are a thrill seeker, I would recommend going to this park instead of Hong Kong Disneyland as both parks offer different experiences (will post about HK Disneyland in another post).
Remember to grab a guide map of the park 1st thing when you enter to ensure you know where you are going. Wasting time being lost is a no-no if you want to fully utilize your day there. Our plan was to ride the cable car to the hilltop and start our adventure there. So we queue and got on the cable car thinking it will be just a short ride to the top.
But we were so wrong about the short ride..
This might be quite a torturous adventure for people with fear of height as the whole ride probably takes about 10-15 minutes and it is quite high above ground but with a scenic view.

Not only the park has adventurous rides (spoiler: at least two roller coaster rides), it has shows as well scheduled at certain times, aquariums and beautiful parks to explore.
It was such a blissful journey riding the car cable back down in the evening as it's a great opportunity to rest your feet while enjoying the beautiful views with the lights on. Definitely a tiring day.
That is all for now, do look forward to my next update where I will be posting on HK Disneyland! (:
Much loves, xoxo ❤
