We departed a day earlier on Sat (21/6) morning, thus had 1 & 1/2 days to tour around before i needed to report for work on Mon-Wed.
Choice of hotel was absolutely at the discretion of my co. due to corporate rates. Since we only paid 1 nite on ourselves, we rather avoid the trouble of switching hence, stay through in the same hotel at Wan Chai which was located just opposite my HQ. The hotel has been refurbished recently so it was so brand new.....lucky us!! But certainly not a cheap one. Bcoz the hotel wasn't a friendly one, it caused us quite hassles in securing the room for me in particular as compared to my other colleagues due to additional headcounts. Issues like ......double occupancy cost more... queen size or king size bed which was at extra charge again.....breakfast voucher only for 2 pax.....kids above 3 will be charged & etc etc. Felt embarassed coz i had given much troubles to our PA in HQ (due to last minute arrangement) until she had to 'fly' many overseas sms & calls to me for clarifications & confirmations even after work!! So it's fair that i 'bribe' a bit with our proud local snacks upon meeting her in HK.
Here is the brand new hotel room where we stay put for 6Days & 5Nights ....the lazy chair was joined to the king size bed for more spacious space!
It was around 1pm when we were finally done with checking-into the hotel. After settling down, we immediately went to hunt for food. Thankfully, eateries were plenty just behind the hotel. Our first stop was at a typical 'char chan tank'/restaurant where the country's popular pork chop rice was sampled and well-rated by huby!!After the late lunch, we proceeded to the MRT station to check out & study the fare & route to Disneyland which the family would be visiting the next day. Then, a trip was made to Causeway Bay for a casual shopping at Times Square where the BENTO's tools were spotted & bought. But the primary visit to that place was to fulfill the desire for a must-savour dessert.
Nearby our hotel, there were also curry fish ball & grilled hotdogs which we tried.
As a nap was much needed by everyone, we headed back to the hotel afterwhich all of us got ourselves cleaned up before going out again at night....obviously for dinner. Dinner was at Pacific Place, a mall at Admiralty. No speciality as the boys decided for a pasta. Though excited, everyone retired very quickly on that SAT night for a much needed recharge!!
As we only have 2 adults breakfast vouchers, i brought only the boys to breakfast at the hotel leaving dady with another 1/2 hours of peaceful sleep. Btw, the menu of d breakfast selection was way too lousy to justify the charge of HK$95 per pax for a child. As mentioned in an earlier post, we only left for Disneyland around lunch time. The weather was extremely HOT burning that Sunday but i would say. i rather have it that way than to rain which happened for the past whole month! Again, being the " kiasi " parents, the boys were dressed in long blouse to protect their skin from sun-burn.... i think there must be many people that found us crazy wrapping them up like a dumpling despite the hot sun but thank god the boys didn't complaint....hahaha !!
From the Wan Chai MRT, we made an interchange transit at Central to board the Disneyland train which took approximately 45 mins on the whole journey. The disneyland train was rather eye-catchy in design.
For me, i find the cruising in the "small-small world" was really beautiful !!!
The GOOD-BYE signs in many languages....
Here is a family portrait with MICKEY. There were also MINNIE, WINNIE POOH, GOOFY & CHIPMUNKS but we were too lazy to queue for photography!!!
The final visit was to the Adventure land before we proceeded for dinner.
I recorded a very valuable memories with my loved ones and hope the boys would have too!!
