Hong Kong Trip: Big Buddha and Meeting TVB star!

 Part 2 of Hong Kong begins here :)

Early in the morning, we "cuk fat" to meet the Big Buddha.

How to go:
1. Take the MRT to Tung Chung Station. From there, it is only a walking distance to the Ngong Ping Cable Car which you have to take in order to complete your quest to meet the "Dai Fatt" (Big Buddha)

Everytime when you watched the TVB drama saying "Hui Dai Yu San, Sek Zai, Pai Dai Fatt"(cantonese)  meaning "Go Lantau Island, Eat vegetarian and Pray to the Big Buddha". Ta daaa.... this is the place that I am going today.

There are 2 types of Cable Car: Normal and Crystal Cabin.

We took the crystal cabin. The base of the cabin is made from glass. Superb view of sea and hill along the journey. However, Sis BF damn scary cat. He been holding the side rail from the begining to the end! Recommended experience for first timer!

Spot the area below their feet! Blue blue Sea~

Reached the destination after around half an hour cable car.

Guess who we meet in the "Dai Yu San"?

Its him, the one who acted in "Fei Fu" together with the co-actress from the On call 36 hours.

He was saying , " My hair still so "yeng" even the wind blew so strongly".

Duh!! His hair already full of wax. Of course cannot fly d lah.

You have to climb around 500++  step of staircase before you can reach the top to pay tribute to the Big Buddha.

Recommended to climb up as you will get to enjoy a breezy view on top.

On top of here, all the merchandise that you purchased ranging from god statue, car hanger with bell and etc had already "kai Guang"(mandarin) . "Kai Guang" means the items can protect you against any misfortune and you will be needing to keep the items in a proper place.

We also enjoy a bowl of "San Shui Tau Fu Fa" (Soft Taufu made with Mountain Water ). You can choose to additional brown sugar in it.

The difference between this taufufa and the ordinary one is this taste softer but less sweet. The taste is too mild for my taste bud.

I still prefer those in Malaysia Pasar Malam Taufufa.

We are so damn hungry after we come down from the Big Buddha.

Therefore, lunch at Tung Chung Mall. You can see the mall immediately when you stopped at Tung Chung Station.

This mall is famous for its Outlet store. You can get cheaper price for the branded stuff that such as  Esprit Outlet, Raph Lauren, Burberry and many mores.

We went for lunch at the food court. They have plenty of choices in the food court ranging from Macau Speciaties such as Cheese Baked Seafood Rice, HK famous food- Sliced Beef Fried Kuey Teow, Wanton Mee, Congee and so on. Taste So So but the portion of ingredients is fabulous. HK people are not stingy in putting the ingredient in the food. Maybe not all the stall but from our 6days trip, all the foods we ate is absolutely excellent.

If you are paying around RM15 for a bowl of wanton mee, you can expect the ingredient in your mee worthy the price you pay! The size of the wanton itself is already 3-4x bigger than ours.

If you are already in Tung Chung Station, you can also proceed to take the Disneyland train from here.

Their windows and hand rails are of Mickey Mouse shape and you can also find mini Goofy, Minnie Mouse and also Chips and Dale statue on display in the train.

The Disneyland Station is also much more special compared to the others. The theme of the station is classical. Really nice for photo shooting.

We do not went into the Disneyland. Only dropby for sightseeing at the entrance.

Trying to catch the firework from the entrance. But, failed.

After the firework, we went back to Mongkok for the dinner.

You should try the "Pou Chai Fan" in HK. Taste delicious but recommended for sharing as the portion is quite big for a lady.

After that, we just went for strolling in the Sport Shoe Road and look for bargain stuff.

Back to hotel. Exhausted.

Coming soon in the post: Symphony of Light and Avenue of Star.
