July 4, 2010, the day of our City Tour to Kowloon and Disneyland.
We left Mexan Harbour Hotel at eight o’clock in the morning and after having our breakfast too. Bus on-board, we were toured by Bryan of Wins Travel accompanied by Cow Loo (i did not know the real name of this foolish guide) . We first had our City Tour at Kowloon. They first brought us to The Avenue of the Stars viewing the Hongkong’s tallest building the IMC. Our tour guides allowed us to take photos from 8:50 to 9:20. And so here are the photos we had. Thanks Dave Morales and Bec Malanao for sharing these to me.
At the Avenue of the Stars where we had our kulit posing and fun bonding slash teambuilding. Temperature that time was 34 – 38 degree celsius.
Notice the American guy with us, he has a resemblance with one of our US clients 🙂 Reminds of some unforgettable moment wehehehe.
It was here at the Avenue of the Stars where Cow Loo took pictures of each of us, saying SEXY and having the peace sign, full smiles pa kami! We thought it was part of the tour, that he took us photos as a documentation, but still we also had the idea that it was to be paid so we asked him how much, he told us he was doing it as a part time job and his boss was the one who knew of the amount. He kept on saying the pictures will be put in a PLATO, “Mr Gwapo, Mr. Maganda, Mr. Swave”. After taking pictures he left us and told that he will be arranging our Disneyland tour.
After this, we went back to our coach and headed to City Outlet, Xiaon – a jewelry shop selling necklaces, bangles, rings with designs and pendants that believe to bring good luck, security and prosperity – Feng Shui.
And after here, we went to Global Outlet Export – a souvenir shop (and we did not buy anything from here, expensive though!)
We’re heading to Disneyland, it was already 12noon. Along the way, Cow Loo hopped in again with big bag. Here comes the loud voice uttering Mr. Gwapo, Ms. Maganda!! as he was handing the pictures in plates, everyone chuckled as they were seeing the pictures, including us. Sabi ko na nga ba may bayad, we bet it was only HK$50, but OMG to our dismay it costed HK$160.. OMG, we had no money.. Tahimik kaming lahat, nagngingitngit sa inis, nais magwala at habulin si Cow Loo at Bryan, bigla silang lumayas after getting the pictures’ fees, budol budol ba yun? Linshak, litrato namin kulang kulang isang libong piso???? Ginto! Buti na lang may Disney, gandang strategy nila ha grrrrrr…
Tiring Disneyland Tour…
Night View of Princess’ palace, before the fireworks.
We went here on a package, everything was arranged, from HK airport pick up to the hotel, hotel to City Tour and Disneyland, from Disneyland back to the hotel and finally from hotel to HK airport. Except those MTR and bus we had, those were just some sort of familiarizing ourselves.
