#insaneileenTravels: HONG KONG DAY 1 & 2

2 weeks since I came back from HongKong and I'm still missing the food over there!!! 
Went to Hong Kong with Yeeshi for 7 days in celebration of our 21st birthday
Both of us agreed that our money was super well-spent! 

Instead of having a birthday party which normally happens within a day, 
we chose to have a 7 days party abroad! hahaha! 
And guess what? The amount spent for that 1 day party VS 7 days party abroad is about the same! 
Hahah friends, you guys know who you are huh. HAHAHA! 


So we started our planning way back in Sept 2014, 3 months before the trip. 
Was super excited. We decided to travel on budget. Everything for the trip must be CHEAP! 
And by cheap, we really mean super CHEAP on accommodation wise. 
For our flights, we tried to find the cheapest way and the best timing. 

Flights ($405)

SCOOT ($180)
SG --- HK 
1:55AM - 5:35AM                     

TIGER AIR ( $225)
HK --- SG
6:50PM - 10:55PM

Accommodation (> S200!!!)

AIRBNB Apartment (4D3N; $107)
It's located at Sham Shui Po, an old district in HK :) 
There's a court just opposite our apartment, alot of elders were exercising! Alot of doggies too!!

I slept on the top bunk! Bed was comfy, basic necessities are ok. 
Just that the toilet is really way too small... HAHAH 
I was really bothered about it on Day 1!!! 

There were other travelers in the room too, the Filipino woman was unfriendly. 
Only stayed 2 nights with us and she's gone! 
Then the other 2 nights was with 2 other chinese girls. 
Didn't had a chance to talk with them as we were always out till late and they're out early!

Pictures are taken from the listing and it's true to picture! (Y) 

YHA Tai Mei Tuk Hostel (1 Night; $25)

YHA Ngong Ping Hostel (1 Night; $25)

Check out the website for pictures because I don't even bother to take!
Do not expect anything nice from these accommodation! It's shared dorm.
You get what you paid for! :) 


Never really follow according to plan everyday but all the things listed here, we got them covered :) 


Thank you Wanjun, Grace and Steph for sending us off! :) 

Departed SG @ 1:55AM
Only slept for about 2 hours on the plane! So that's the amount of sleep we had for Day 1!

Out of HK airport @ 630 AM after immigration stuff. 

Bought prepaid card with data! Forgot how much was it already. 
We had to top up every 2 days! -_- 

Took airport express --- HK Island MTR --- Jordan MTR to have our first meal!!! 


wah, super miss the scrambled egg la!!! 入口即化!!! 
And HongKong's egg taste super different from Singapore's egg! 
Heard that they used Japanese egg. 
Their milk tea is really really nice!!! I finally tasted the AUTHENTIC HK MILK TEA

We reached there about 730am, haven full house yet which is good for us cos we were carrying our burden luggage with us. Hahaha. 

Heng they gave us a corner seat, got some space to put our burden. 

After our satisfying meal, we headed to Sham Shui Po to hunt for our Airbnb Apartment! 

But we were too damn early for the check in time... 
So we went around the neighbourhood and settled down at the court opposite our apartment to kill some time.

*Haha animation abit wrong here.
Supposed to be Airport --- Jordan --- Sham Shui Po

Checked in at around 11am. Put down our luggage and rested for awhile before heading out again. 

We also realised that our apartment is nearer to Prince Edward station instead of Sham Shui Po. Hahaha. 

Took the MTR from Prince Edward --- Sheung Wan

MACAU EGGTART!!! Some snacks before our lunch with Carbon!
Super nice portuguese eggtart ^_^ 

Walked and explored from Sheung Wan to Central. 

Yeeshi showed me her old apartment too! 
Central, SLOPES EVERYWHERE. Hong Kong people are strong man. Esp the elders!
Salute them! Hahaha. 

Lunch Time! 

To the best ramen place recommended by yeeshi! 
Indeed, the ramen is the best one I've ever tried!!! ESP THE EGG. AHHH!!!


*Slurps the egg yolk!!!

After the meal, Jacky brought us around Central and we parted at PMQ! 
Thanks for the treat too! :)
