Our Quick HK Getaway Day 2

One thing I learned from our first day, pag pagod ka pala, kahit anong asim at tigas ng unan mo in spite of a million-and-one layering of towels & sprays of cologne, hihilik ka pa rin sa tulog mula sa pagod. After a hot shower while sitting down on the closed trono..

Kap to me: O kita mo na sweetheart, may pakinabang naman pala yung trono sayo? Nakaupo ka maligo?

Me to kap: Kasi naman honey, pag nakatayo akong maligo baka magkapalit na kami ng pader ng mukha sa lapit!

.. I fell on the bed & snored away. Pag-gising ko, umaga na. Time for another day of misadventures. ;P

What we had to deal with at the hell hole: a cramped elevator, fighting for space with construction supplies & materials. Ya see what I mean??? Ang galing mo talaga Kap, let’s all clap for him please! :P

In fairness, 20 steps away is our ride. And my knight in shining armor carries my big, empty shopping bag, ready for my purchases, lol!

Because Kap wanted cheap eats all the way, puro fast food ang nasa agenda. In all honesty, I’m ok with fast food. If only it were not a battle getting tables & seats EVERY SINGLE TIME. Parang gusto ko na tuloy mag-diet muna at sa Maynila nalang uli kumain huhuhu.

Breakfast was a battle (150 hkd –masaya si Kap). Lunch was a battle (350 hkd – bumawi ako mwahaha). I shouldn’t have expected dinner to be any easier, and I was right. Dinner was a battle -an uphill climb (450 hkd). At dahil maliit lang ang kainan, you guessed it, wala ding maupuan! @_@

Breakfast

Breakfast was eaten at Cafe de Coral right around the river bend..

Because we are 5 in a group, it’s always a battle getting seats together. What we do is we split up -then just meet up afterwards. Sadness! </3 #FaMEALy

Shopping

We went to HK specifically for the kids to shop. That was their birthday pressie. Their Dad & I gave them shopping money, they can buy anything they want, no questions asked (especially from their dad, lol!) So they were on a serious mission.

Clothes & shoes were on top of their agenda.

I was about to budge when Ate announced she was buying this product, but I remembered the deal -wild card. It’s just that she has such beautiful skin, I was afraid that it may do more harm than good. Hopefully I’m wrong. Clarisonic (Smart Profile US$265) is a line of sonic face, foot and skin cleansing & exfoliating brushe & skin care products aimed to help get clear, healthy skin.

She also got a Gentle Monster sunnies in gold (US$285). Gentle Monster is a Korean designer brand that constantly develops itself under a philosophy of “high-end experimentation.” Tignan nyo ang mukha ng tatay nya HAHAHAHAHA! Gustong-gusto nang pumiyok, nagpipigil lang! ;))

Meanwhile, my Babyson went on the hunt for shoes, shoes, and more shoes! Umapaw ang maleta nya ng sapatos.

Kung saan-saang sulok sya pumapasok at kumakain in school so this is better suited for him as opposed to his other pricier watches. Seiko, ang wallet na relong maswerte! :P

Lunch

Lunch at the K11 Art Concept Mall food court. Like I said, it was not a food trip. The kids spent their money on material possessions rather than on food hehe.

I love trips because Kap gets to spend a lot of time & interact with the kids. Back home, may kanya-kanyang buhay kasi. I wish we could take more out-of-the-country trips as a family next year.

Our 2nd day in HK was Halloween kaya may kaganapang ganyan. Jestoni, huwag mong buhayin ang bangkay!

It was SUPER crowded, I feared we’d lose sight of each other -with no roaming! @_@

Dinner

Ate‘s med friend SANNY suggested Pololi so that’s where we headed for dinner. I’m telling you, it’s really ALL-DAY WALKING. Pati gabi walang patawad. Uphill climb pa, parang Biyernes Santo sa torture!

Went up the hill & through a very scary, very empty, very dark alley along Graham Street on hallow’s eve for this pretty lil thang! Spicy Poké Mix ~ 90hkd

Pololi is a modern concept takeaway shop in Central. The first dedicated POKE shop serving traditional Hawaiian dish. 35-39 Graham Street, Central, Hong Kong (852)27558099

It’s really good, and dare I say? Worth the climb???

One good thing from this trip is I saw the aggressive side of the kids hehe. Aba, pwede ko na palang pakawalan sa mundo, mabubuhay sila! :P Kahit si bunso. Marunong nang makibunong-braso sa mesa at upuan. Each of us would wait for tables to free up, lagi silang first honor sa pagkuha ng mesa. Even seats on the MTR. Good job kiddos!

Kap certainly keeps me grounded. Yun nga lang nasosobrahan na yata. Below grounded na talaga ang dinadanas ko, lol!

Our 2nd day was a lot better though (or maybe because I got over the initial shock of our dismal lodging) having spent it in AIR-CONDITIONED malls with clean restrooms as opposed to the “great outdoors” the previous day. And since they have broken me in already with the all-day walking, I was more mentally conditioned on another day of torture. ;P So were my screaming & moaning fats, lol!

Homaygas. Gabing-gabi na, nasa mall pa rin kami. #ShopPaMore

2 down, 3 to go. Kaya pa!

Aba lokong Kap! Matapos akong tipirin, may masamang binabalak pa??? Hello. Sinuswerte ka! ;))
