Hong Kong Day 3 + 4

Hello!!! Back with a blog post on the third and fourth day I spent in Hong Kong.
I am missing it every single day since I touched down ok... sigh


Day 3

It was the first day of Chinese new year if I remember correctly? and the hotel I was staying over at engaged a lion dance troupe in the morning. They went really high ok!! like two stories high. I felt so scared watching them perform, fearing an accident would happen... and it really did. During the last straw, the front men fell. Like holy shit?? I think he hit his backbone or something. looked really painful

Breakfast at the local cafeteria

my sotong ball kway tiao. so hard the sotong balls...

Soooo on that day, we went to Ocean Park!! whee~

I purposely wore the bart simpson's outerwear there so I can blend in ok. hahahaha I just wanted to relief my days as a kid.

powerpact motherman wearing havaianas in the 15 degrees weather

First ride...

yup... my brother taking a moment of silence before the ride starts.
maybe he was saying a prayer? hahahahaha

Post-ride.. look at my hair

Second ride... we queued 1 hour for this retarded ride ok but ok I took the time to regain my composure. Abit hin already after the first ride

yup... 1 hour of waiting for this ride

then... off to see the penguins!!

the way they walk... Just toooooo adorable!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't even know what my father was thinking when he made this face. Freaking crack me up every time I look at this photo even now... sweet jesus

And THIS!!! Hahahaha cannot maintain

next stop to the walrus, dolphins and seals.. no there weren't any polar bears :{

Some nomz....

Grilled korean squid...super yum tum tum!!

so we were suppose to go off cos we were all so lazy already but... the trail led us to the marine theatre where the sea animals performed..

the dolphins.... I've always loved dolphins. When I was younger, I was even crazier over them and I cannot help but feel very sad to watch this show. Y'all know right that these performing animals/circus animals are all "abused"

They don't actually get food unless they perform well and they are kept in very small enclosures. There was a story of a dolphin who committed suicide and looked her trainer in the eye before she did so to tell him that she had enough of this torture and that was when he decided he didn't want to be part of the animals' pain and quit his job... can go google if you are interested.

so basically I was quite down during the whole show because all the other audiences were clapping and cheering so loudly I just wish I could tell them about the torture these animals go through just to put up a good show for their entertainment

then anyway, after the show we really went off...
bye bye Ocean Park!!

came across this street store nearby our hotel streets selling these dragon beard candy

and this is dinner!!

my fish paste kway tiao

my brother's usual beef tendon noodle

Beef satay udon

the must order item!! Favouriteeeeee of the favorite

serious pigging out... Dessert after

didn't take photos of the other desserts... too lazy

Round 2 dessert. I cannot even..

and that's it for day three!! and I bought some shark hat from ocean park and some other biscuits and souvenirs.

Sometimes I feel incredibly amused with myself. Put me anywhere, as long as there's anything, you'll see me buying something. On the plane also can buy things. On land, in air all can buy. Pocket burnt.
