Our Quick HK Getaway Day 3

Breakfast in my hard bed was how I started my 3rd day. (Total spend: 250 hkd) Aba, bumabawi si Romeo. :P He’s really a morning person so pagtilaok ng intsik na manok, he went out with Ate to buy breakfast, and also to avoid the long lines & fighting for survival over the tables & chairs. Hay, peaceful morning salamat honey.

and thank you Ate for always accompanying Daddy everywhere. You have been an energizer bunny the whole trip. Thank you for planning our (tiring) itinerary from start to finish, for being our human waze, and for everything else in between! :-*

The rest of the day was pretty chill, spent in outlets. Shopping, after all, was the reason we came. It’s so hard to buy pressies for the kids so this was the best way to guarantee they’d like the things we give them. Money is the universal language, especially among teens who covet lots & lots of material things, lol!

Ayan, nagkasugat-sugat na kaka-lakad! Kap is so wonderful, even with his own discomfort, he still manages to take care of us above all else. <3 In spite of his major kakunatan, we really are so blessed to have him in our lives.

The last time we were in HK we stayed at a friend’s flat in Tung Chung past Disney. Natuwa ang mga bagets sa dami ng outlets & sale sa Citygate -therefore extending their spending power, so we set aside half a day there. You just need a good eye, and that they certainly have. Kahit naka-baon sa kailaliman, they will find a needle in the haystack.Funny how my Babyson found this for me while he was looking for stuff to buy for himself. Wagi!

More rubber shoes. Boys!

Staying true to his panata na food court all the way (hmpf!) we had a quick lunch at Food Republic (Total spend: 350 hkd)

Basta pagkain, masaya kami. As long as we get to shop, everything is A-OK! :P I’m happy the kids are not as maarte as me. Pag nagkataon, sobrang kawawa si Kap, lol!

Look at that photobomber. My Babyson is such a character! :P

My Ice Kachang. I can never go without dessert. If you want me to be happy the whole day, feed & ply me with sweets. Kap knows the drill. :P

After lunch, we proceeded to the Prada Outlet in Hong Kong Island, a good hour away from the city. Address: Prada Outlet Hong Kong 2/F Marina Square – East Wing South Horizons Ap Lei Chau. It’s open from 10am – 6pm from Tuesdays to Saturdays, and from 12nn – 6pm on Sundays. Never go on a Monday as it’s closed.

The Prada Outlet is about 20-minutes taxi ride from Hong Kong Central (spend: around 200 hkd).  You can also take the bus. Ask your hotel to give you a copy of the Hong Kong Citybus Guide. The bus fare to the South Horizons Bus Terminal is less than 7 hkd (one-way) from the following stations: Central / Exchange Square (Citybus 590) Admiralty Bus Station (Citybus 590A) Causeway Bay / Moreton Terrace (Citybus 592).

This Prada-owned and operated outlet is one of HK’s best kept shopping secrets & tucked in one of Hong Kong’s high end residential areas so you don’t need to worry about the usual traffic and shopping crowd. If you see this building then you know you’re on the right track.


Walang nagustuhan ang mga bagets. They have 1 bag allowance each so they were choosing very very carefully on what arm candy to purchase.

IFC has become a favorite mall. You know why? Because aside from the fact that it’s just so darn posh & pretty.. hello GODIVA!

Nagmumurang chocolates in all shapes & sizes! Kap: Isang duck rice ko na ang isang pirasong tsokolate ah!

Scoops of sweetness from Godiva (45 hkd each). This ensured that I had sweet dreams in spite of alam nyo na. :P

Having had our fill of dessert first, on to dinner. But first, let me take a selfie.. erm, groupie! ;)

There’s a deck right outside IFC mall where you can see the harbour.

Going back, Kap asked the kids if they were game to ride the Hong Kong Ferry for a change. In all our travels to HK (past & present, single & double) Kap & I never rode on the ferry, imagine that! So this was a first shared by the GOppets. <3

The Star Ferry is not only a cost effective mode of transportation, but also it is a world-famous sightseeing trip between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. There are two routes: Tsim Sha Tsui ‹‹ ›› Central and Tsim Sha Tsui ‹‹ ›› Wan Chai. These services across Victoria Harbour run daily from early morning till 11-11:30pm with a frequency every 6-20 minutes. The journey takes about 8-10 minutes.

HK is such a busy, fast-paced city. Hindi ko kayang tumira dito! Everyone is always rushing, it’s too stressful for me.

If you’re not prone to sea-sickness, the HK ferry is actually a nice mode of public transport pala. May view na, laging may upuan pa! #SoMuchDizzy

Included in Ate‘s well-thought of & well-mapped out itinerary was dinner at Chee Kei for said-to-be the best wonton noodles. (Total spend: 250 hkd)

I have found a new bff in this crunchy Kale! Crab congee & crunchy kale for dinner. Soft diet for a relaxing sleep ahead. Goodnight from one very VERY tired pig who went wee wee wee all the way home. Oink!

Servings were small though (notice the size of the bowls in the photo above), at ginutom agad sila, so nag-side trip ang 2 boys for duck rice! ;)

May nginig. Halatang hindi mahilig kumuha ng self-we’s! ;))

Ang just like that, we were halfway through our trip. How bittersweet. 2 more days to go in our #GOngkong2015 trip..

Come what may, and no matter how old they’d get, they’ll always be daddy’s little girls & mama’s baby boy. <3
