hong kong december 2007 - day 9 and 10

editor's note: there were numerous pictures from day 1-7 that couldn't be displayed. It was an editing oversight and have been restored :)

day 9 (26th) - New Territories (Yuen Long)

had dimsum breakfast at Ho Choi today, cos' it's really good. Ordered 9 types including carrot cake, etc. All are good.

Tin Shui Wai (West Rail)

then took MTR to Mei Foo, transferred to West Rail to Tin Shui Wai. Walked the Ping Shan Trail consisting of 9-10 historical structures through the village.

Hung Shing Temple - last station along Ping Shan Trail

Town well, sealed up but still full of water

the LRT was experienced on real rail on ground level, with different route numbers. Finished the Ping Shan Trail and took LRT 761P at Hang Mei LRT to Tai Tong LRT.

There are NO barrier gates for LRT.
You're at your own liberty to tap-in-tap-out.
Of cos, HKD290+prosecution for not paying up.

Hang Mei LRT

LRT route 761P

tried the Kai Kee Desserts along Yau San Street, then bought 9 boxes of Hang Heung laopo biscuits. Darn heavy!

Hang Heung store - expiry date of biscuits: 5 Jan 2008


Fully satisfied with Yuen Long

my extra bag is full. Hard luggage bursting. Another hand carry bag with my 2 pairs of shoes. No more room!

Last dinner in HK 2007 - KFC mega meal HKD158

day 10 (27th) - Tsing Yi (Tsing Ma Bridge), Home Sweet Home
the visit to Tsing Ma Bridge was cancelled. It was replaced by Airport Express -.-"
