On the second day…
First stop is Avenue of Stars. Avenue of Stars is one of the tourist attractions in Hong Kong which is located along Tsim Sha Tsui – an urban area in southern part of Kowloon in Hong Kong. We are only allowed for 30 minutes to roam around, so I did not take much photos. Just these few:
The time when we visited Avenue of Stars, a week or two after that, it was scheduled to close for three years for further development. We were lucky, I must say. More about Avenue of Stars here.
We also went to a wholesale and retail jewelry shop called JW Jewellery. The shop is well known for its Fortune Fan Diamond Pendant which is made by a Feng Shui Master and made from 21k South Africa diamonds.
The pendant is in Yin and Yang design and it has a spinning wheel. The big pendant which costs about 3000 Hong Kong Dollars (if I could remember it correctly) is so beautiful that you could hear the fan spinning when you shake it. It is not allowed to take close up photos of the jewelries, though some others took their luck.
A very short video with the little fan spinning
We also went to a chocolate shop called Chocolate Empire, which sells very expensive chocolates. The tour guide said we only have 15 minutes and we were all like ‘why only 15 minutes’? Because the chocolates are very expensive that you’d want to leave the place right away. 😀
After visiting Avenue of Stars, we went to a place called Aberdeen Fishing Village. Here, you can find sampans, seafood markets and floating restaurant. Fishermen and their families live on their ‘house boats’ and decorate it as how they like it.
After having our lunch – yay! It’s Disneyland time!!! 😀 😀 😀
So we just roamed around a little and we found out that Flights of Fantasy is coming up. I didn’t even know what was it, but I waited and waited… Then I found out it’s a parade of the Disney characters!! Oh, you should have seen my reaction when I saw Winnie the Pooh and Friends!! I shouted ‘Tigger!’ and I cried!!
So after seeing Flights of Fantasy, it’s time to window shop. 😉
I have to admit that I am not really a huge fan of Mickey and Minnie Mouse, but when I saw these –
Oh, these mugs broke my heart. I want to take them all. I love mugs so much. But believe me, I didn’t buy any single mug. I promise. 😀
So okay… my broken hearted led into a hungry tummy. Time to feed. 😀
What else is famous? Of course, the Mickey Mouse waffles.
I love the waffles. I think the shape made it more delicious. 😛 Really, I loved it. And why not? I love waffles.
And the famous Mickey and Minnie Mouse ice cream…
Now, don’t ask me where’s the Mickey ice cream. 😀 It’s now time for the Minnie Mouse ice cream to enjoyed. Such a cutie. 🙂
I also have one thing to admit – I love the Frozen movie. I watched it several times and I don’t think I’ll get tired of watching it.
It was not allowed to take photos with flash. I got this and the others – spell BLURY.
We also went inside this Winnie the Pooh attraction. The first thing I asked ‘It is for kids?’ 😀 😀 😀 I got traumatized with the ride I tried when we were in Legoland, Malaysia. I think I was not myself that time that I was the one who invited (most likely challenged) to try the ride. And I promised myself – I will never ever try any ride… ever again!!
And the exit led into this… I was like, can I stay for a little longer?? 😀
It was such a sad news when I found out that Cinderella’s Carousel was not working. 😦 Anyway, I was happy that I saw it. Look at the brighter side, you kid!
I was about to cry – I was so exhausted. And we waited for almost an hour to see the fireworks. Too many people waiting and it was insanely hot. But when the fireworks began, every tiredness I felt – all was gone! I completely forgot all the worries I had that time and enjoyed the moment. The only thing I had in my mind – ‘Dreams do come true.’
Here’s a short video of the amazing fireworks I got:
So after the magical fireworks, we stayed on the bench to enjoy our last minutes. We were happy to see those smiles on people’s faces… Well, only to find out that we were the only ones being waited by our bus. Oooppps! We almost missed our bus! 😀
…and the Princess lived happily ever after. ❤
