|me with The Beatles, a dream come true!|
|me and my parents excited to finally step out of HK airport|
|I can't help but LOL at this picture. Trying to capture my parents and younger sister in a picture with this large building but my camera couldn't handle the framing (or I couldn't frame it better?)|
Taking the MTR was another new experience for me! Compared to Manila's chaotic old train system, Hong Kong's was fast, clean and very convenient, it was my first time to see those machines that automatically dispenses train tickets (haha pagpasensyahan na!) Upon alighting at Central Station, we were greeted by Filipinos taking their Sunday off at the park nearby. At that time, I also yet didn't know about the Jollibee branch in Hongkong so I was surprised to see one there. Anyway, the Pinays directed us where to proceed, the walk was quite nice since we were able to see nice buildings in the area.
|The Peak Tram, and oh boy, avoid the queues here on weekdays!|
The entrance to The Peak Tram that will take us to Victoria's Peak already had a long line of tourists waiting for their turn to ride the tram, but we never really got bored because we were just very excited and we can't help to people watch and observe the teenage Hong Kong fashion. Actually I wasn't sure by then if The Tram was our only option going up but since we it was our first time in HK, we might as well experience the ride.
|ooooh the time I was still into taking selfies. hahaha|
A quick tramway ride and we were off to the Wax Museum proper. Me and my sister were so excited it seemed like we were kids given new toys. Since the entrance fee was quite steep, we decided to take our time to enjoy and explore the area. The wax figures were intereting to look at but of course, we didn't waste our time and took lots of photo ops with these "celebrities."
We then headed to The Peak's Sky Terrace afterward, which is the tallest point in Hong Kong that is sure to provide you with breathtaking view of the city skyline. At this moment, it finally sunk in, I am indeed in a different country!
|mi mama and sistah at Victoria's Peak|
By the way, I have been mentioning Madame Tussauds for quite some time, this is actually a famous chain of wax museum that originated in London and was founded by Marie Tussaud who originally hails from France. Their branch at Hong Kong is the first in Asia and showcases about 100 wax figures! Their wax figures were actually pretty mixed, from TV and movie icons, sports legends, music wonders and even political biggies. I have here some of pictures we have, well I actually have a lot but I do not want to flood you guys with my face (which is included in most of the photos we took), so here is a preview of what you can expect to see inside.
