^you need to tap it upon entering the bus. no need to tap it again when you go down (unlike singapore), but then you need to know when are where you will go down. or rather which stop. some bus do have this monitor-like wherein they will announce the next stop, but some doesn't.

naku sis,  haha sabi nga ni boyfie, derecho ligo kasi wala talagang bath"area". pero okay naman kasi everyday clean up and change ng towels.

when we  checked out, iniwan lang namin yung susi sa room kasi walang tao sa reception nila sa 5th floor.




^ sa golden crown court din yan di ba?  how's the toilet?  disappointed kame ni hubby sa golden crown guesthouse dahil sa liit ng bathroom.   actually, no bathroom at all.  dun sa mismong toilet yung shower.  when you sit on the toilet nakadikit na face mo sa lavatory. LOL!  imagine, quadruple yung room, tapos ang liit ng toilet.  mejo napahiya lang ako sa mga kasama ko kase ako nagbook nun.  buti na lang we booked 2 rooms, yung isa renovated couple, maayos yung CR, may separate na shower area so dun kame nakiligo sa isang room. i just thought of sharing this para alam din ng iba what to expect. but overall, madali sila kausap sa guesthouse, filipina yung naglilinis ng rooms and if mag-exchange kayo ng US dollars, competitive na rates nila.
another tip :  370hkd yung rate nila sa disneyland while 388hkd sa CTS sa nathan road, so i suggest sa golden crown na lang kayo bumili ng disney ticket if hindi nyo kukunin yung may meal voucher.  if with meal voucher naman ang bibilhin nyo sa CTS, you have to buy 2 days in advance.

^may nabasa ako na travel blog (sorry, di ko matandaan yung source) na pupunta sana sila sa china kasi kala nila madali lang yung visa pag andun na, yun pala hindi. pinapunta sila sa chorva office at pinag antay ng matagal pero di naman pala nakakuha ng visa.

Sis- first time staying in Admiralty side. Puno na ang Hotel I like sa Kowloon for December.  We plan to stay nalang in Admiralty side, how is the shopping here? Where is Bossini and Uniqlo in this area?  Suggestions please.
Thank you.

you need to apply sa Pinas ng visa. they don't give visa upon arrival na sa Shenzhen nor issue a visa in HK if you're just a tourist. if you're in a group of 3, pwede dito tour visa. pero minimum of 3pax yun. travel agency ang mag-aayos ng visa and may itinerary na rin sila. mura lang naman bayad. parang 300hkd or less tapos kasama na entrance dun sa windows of the world and may van na kayo.  passport copy should be provided 2days before you're planned date.

Excited ako para sa daughter ko kasi first time niya mag HK, pero parang nalulungkot ako at nag uuulan pala :-(

We'll be there December 12-15, we're staying at Holiday Inn Golden Mile.

Karrie may mall sa Admiralty, Pacific Place puro high end stores nga lang nandon pero malapit lang naman ang Central at Causeway Bay, one or two stops lang you can even ride the tram. Bossini meron sa Causeway Bay at Central, Uniqlo meron sa Causeway Bay din. Suggestion lang if you're into shopping why not stay na lang sa Causeway Bay, much much better than Admiralty, parang quiet kasi sa area na yon

^^^^ Holiday Inn Golden Mile din kami nag-stay nung August. I super-like the location kasi lakad-lakad na lang to the malls, night market, etc. pati sa ferry terminal going to Macau. :)
