Day 3: Macau - Hong Kong

We took a Turbo Jet ferry to Hong Kong. The journey was about one hour. It was not a very steady ride, if it were more than an hour I would get sick!!

Hong Kong
After checked in to the hotel, we took MTR to Times Square. It is a big mall with Lane Crawford and all other big names. We tried Krispy Kreme donuts, didn't think it was very fantastic. We didn't have enough time to look around, there were so many shops and so little time. :(

Times Square

Victoria Peak
We took a public bus to go up the Victoria Peak. I didn't have much expectations because I went there before. At that time, I joined the half day tour and they only brought us to one of the stop to take photo. Anyway, it was worth going up to the top, the view was much better here.

This condo "The Summit" is so cool, all the units have unobstructed view and it is also the tallest condo at the Peak.

Those that are not so privileged will have to settle for this. Lucky that I stay in Singapore :D

The most recognizable building is the Bank of China (with diagonal lines)

On the right: IFC (International Finance Center) is the tallest building in HK right now.

Bubba Gump at the Peak
This restaurant is created based on the Forrest Gump movie, where Gump met Bubba, a soldier that he knew when he served in Vietnam war. After Bubba died, he set up the shrimp company called Bubba Gump.

A lot of memorabilia from the movie are displayed on the wall. The restaurant got character, nice ambience, and very good view!!

By default "run" is displayed. I guess if we turn it over to "stop" plate means we ask the waiter to stop at our table. I'm not sure whether it is correct, because when we turned it to "stop", the waiter asked if we need anything.

The logo is so cute, they also have a shop next to the restaurant selling tshirts, mugs, etc bearing the logo.

Gourmet beef burger. It wasn't made with beef pate, but the whole steak.

Baked seafood rice with lots of cheese and cream. Very sinful!!

I love this restaurant, I will come again if I visit Hong Kong.

Madame Tussauds

Sparring with Bruce Lee??
