A Very Merry Ferry Ride at Night with Lights

When people go on a holiday, they really go for a break - sun, sea, sidewalk cafes, strolls, R&R, spas, golf, or just lazing around.

Malaysians do it differently. We're always trying to squeeze out as much as possible out of the time that we have. It's a matter of how many places you can conquer, & how many things you an eat in a single day. You pay the money, you go get the honey!

That's what our Hong Kong trip was like. You'd think that after our dinner & our little stroll down to Lan Kwai Fong, we'd be calling it a nite & head back to our beds. But we are no uncle & auntie. We are The Amazing Race!

Our little stroll slowly turned into a long-distance marathon.

It wasn't so bad cos we got to see more of Hong Kong at night.

I'm just thinking that people living/working inside this squarish-angular-rectangular building are just trying balance the feng shui up with circular windows.

We made a few overhead bridge passes. This one looks like something out of Star Trek.

Beam me up Scotty!

Oh, I forgot to mention. We were actually on our way to take the ferry to Kowloon which is mainland Hong Kong on the other side. We have been on the island all this while.

Ferry Pier incoming. We're taking the one from Central Ferry point to Tsim Sha Tsui

As I've mentioned it before, land is scarce in Hong Kong.

If you run out of it, you just build more.

The ferry ride was fantastic. It was romantic, something we could use on Sarawak River on Valentine's Nite.

The ride was super cheap (only about HKD2.20) & super fast (10-15 mins).

We got there in no time.
