Hong Kong 2011- Day 2

18 Dec

Hi there! I’m really sorry for the slow posting of the entire Hongkong trip. I’ll prolly take half a year to finish blogging the 7 days (nah, just kidding)

One of the must go places I would recommend for first timers to Hong Kong would be DISNEYLAND!
(I’ve heard that hongkong disneyland is the smallest as compared to disneylands of other countries but well, for me whom have never been to disneyland, i do that it’s still pretty worth it to go!)

Germaine & I booked our tickets online prior to the trip via
http://park.hongkongdisneyland.com/hkdl/en_US/ticketsAndReservations/overview?name=OneDayTicketPage

Thereafter you just head to the guest/ information counter to grab your tickets, the queue is pretty short actually πŸ™‚

A MUST DO JUMP SHOT! πŸ˜€

How the Ticket looks like.

The entrance

It’s the Christmas season! Decorations are up! πŸ™‚

So first up there was the Street show! πŸ™‚ It is actually performed in cantonese.

Then i headed to the shop and got this! πŸ™‚
It costs me HK$95=S$15.80. Cute hey? It’s a golden bridal Minnie headband

Take a look at the castle behind me.

The smell of popcorn was so strong, I couldn’t resist it!
Got a popcorn for HK$25= S$4.3, slightly over the price but well, what do you expect when you are in a theme park right?

Thereafter we headed to the first world, SMALL SMALL WORLD.

Took this really cute boat ride in small small world. Let’s sing together, it’s a small small world. It’s a small small world. It’s a small small world. lalalalala.

A few pictures to show you how the interior looks like

Winnie the Pooh ride which we got to sit in a cute honeycomb

tea cup

Fight the Z Monster

and many many more! πŸ˜€

As you guys would have known, hongkong Disneyland has just added in a new land to the current layout! The new land is….. TOY STORY LAND

So we were really fortunate to be able to visit the land when it has just completed its official opening.

We completed almost all the rides in Disneyland except for some which has pretty long queue 😦

Next in the midst of rides, we also headed to some of the shows on the showtime that can be found in the map. We are proud that we completed all the shows except one, which is the lion king show.

Below is some pictures from the golden mickey show (which is in Cantonese, but don’t worry they have english & chinese subtitles at theΒ  side screen)

A collage of pictures we’ve taken with the mascots πŸ˜€ didn’t see any Disney princesses though.

Thereafter we had dinner at tomorrow’s land.
I reckon the fish burger meal is pretty acceptable.

Then we took a few couple of more rides at tomorrows’ land and it was almost time to head to the shops to grab a few cookies and souvenirs.

After buying some cookies, we headed for the fireworks that starts at 9pm sharp. Here’s a collage of the fireworks. The pictures do not justify the true beauty of the fireworks on the spot.

And it was time for us to go back to our hotel. It was really a bad way to end the day where we had some miscommunication with the hotel staff which did not provide us with clear instructions on where we should board the shuttle bus 😦 to make it worse, it was raining cats and dogs thereafter the show and we had no umbrella. Ain’t it a worse day to end the day? So in the end we got catch a cab back to the hotel.

To end the post,

(that was actually foam instead of real snow)

HAVE A BLESSED MERRY CHRISTMAS with yourΒ loved ones! πŸ˜€

P.S. Next post, Hong kong Day 3 part 1 will be up pretty soon. I promise it wouldn’t take a year (trying). The next post would be on the peak and Madame Tussauds.
