I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.

I never knew traveling was something I would really want, but here I am craving for it.
This is a continuation of my travel to Hong Kong this December, check out the first article here.
We stayed in a place called Li Cheng Guesthouse in the district of Tsim Sham Tsui. I must say the place is clean and well organized, the room was a bit small but for me its good enough. After resting for a bit, me and my girlfriend went to a nearby exchange then roamed few districts riding MTR. The ride was a breeze compared to when riding railways in Philippines.
Our first destination was Sham Shui Po, what we did check is the Golden Computer Arcade to check game consoles. I was tempted to buy a Nintendo Switch there as prices is much more cheap compared to large retailers.
Next, we traveled in Central to ride trams (quick fact: trams in hong kong first operated in 1904). The cost of the ride is $2 HKD end to end. It was like going back in time riding those trams. We also went to several establishments and that ends our first day in HK.
I’ve recently visited Hong Kong, and it always feels like the first time. I’m always amaze on how fast things change and to new places I’ve never been to.
Me and my girlfriend planned this trip for almost 2 months, as this is her first air flight.
On the 4th of December, we book a grab car around 4AM straight to Manila International Airport. As we got off the departure bay, we see a long queued line going in the airport terminal entrance. Hahaha always Manila… facepalm an hour and half has passed then got through security checkpoint to check-in lounge, another queue line to get our boarding pass. This is not a rant but rather a straight face story telling.
Even though after that long tiresome waiting, we didn’t let that event affect our mood and excitement flying to Hong Kong. We got our boarding pass wew, and set of to immigration counter. I’m kinda worried that time, if my girlfriend would pass the immigration counter. As here in the Philippines, its like you’re not allowed to leave the country type of scenario. I know for a fact that their doing it to stop some of our countrymen immigrate illegally to another country.
I went first in the immigration counter showing my renewed passport, following me is my girlfriend on where she only showed her company ID. And then off we go to the boarding gates to the airplane. Never seen the look of my girlfriends face like its her first birthday, glad she was happy that day.
After 2 hours, we finally landed in Hong Kong. So so happy 😀
