Purink in Hong Kong 2013- Day 2 at Ocean Park!

SAM_3051

Started Day 2 in Hong Kong with some photos at the hotel lobby! Arrived late the night before and couldn't capture some nice shots with the Christmas deco! :D :D Vain say vain I know! :P

Outfit was Oversized Boyfriend Shirt from Hollyhoque and my new denim jacket from Cherub Pudding! Not too sure if there are any of these cool denim left, you can try your luck! (:

First stop of the day was breakfast at Tim Ho Wan at IFC Mall!! How not to eat Tim Ho Wan Dim sum when you are in Hong Kong! I've never been to the Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong though i've traveled to Hong Kong so many times now! But because I wanted to see if there's any difference between the one we now have in Tim Ho Wan Singapore, we are there at about 9am! (:

With darling En and I!

The place was really packed, the restaurant is rather small itself too so there was a queue. Probably most or all are tourists, a lot of Singaporeans definitely. Wasn't ready to queue at the one in Singapore (thankful for Tim Ho Wan Singapore who invited me for a food tasting session!) but willing to queue the one in Hong Kong lol! "P

Small restaurant

Thankfully we didn't have to wait too long. About 30 minutes thereabout only. 

SAM_3082

Cause there was just the 3 of us, we were afraid to over order. We ordered 3 out of 4 of Tim Ho Wan's Big 4 Heavenly King Dim Sum- The Pork Buns, Steamed Egg Cake and Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver!

SAM_3088
Glutinous Rice

My favorite! So good in Singapore and so good in Hong Kong too! 

SAM_3087
Ma Lai Gao!!!Steamed Egg Cake!

SAM_3085
Siew Mai

SAM_3089
Vermicelli Roll with Pig’s Liver

SAM_3081
FAMOUS Pork Buns!

SAM_3080

SAM_3079
Osmanthus Cake


Conclusion. There's no difference in the Tim Ho Wan in Hong Kong and the one we have in Singapore. The pork buns, glutinous rice all taste equally good! Very very aligned Tim Ho Wan that make sure they serve us nothing but the best despite the differing countries! (:

Shop 12A, Hong Kong Station (Podium Level 1, IFC Mall) Central

Most of the shops weren't open yet cause it was really early but Apple Store was!! This is the only store aside from Tim Ho Wan that I took pictures of! (:

SAM_3066

So impressed!!! It's huge and they have this beautiful glass staircase!

SAM_3067

After breakfast, we were off to Ocean Park!!!! It's also my first time to Ocean Park. I've been to Disneyland Hong Kong a couple of times now but never to Ocean Park. I have heard great reviews about this theme park and Sheila herself recommended this place! (:

First stop was the indoor Grand Aquarium which is quite similar to the S.E.A Aquarium we have at Resorts World Sentosa!

Had to take this shot of the mother taking a shot of her child and husband! The daughter is toooo pretty!! (:

SAM_3161
Touching of the star fish and some other fish!

Totally not knowing what to expect and boarding this train which reminds me of the train in Hunger Games where the tributes take to their locations! We after that realize that we are traveling from Ocean Park's Waterfront to the excitement at the Summit.

By Volkswagen!

En and I on board the Ocean Express Waterfront Station!!

Let's visit the Pandas at Hong Kong Jockey Club Sichuan Treasures! And this place is like the River Safari in Singapore! Only that you don't have to pay individual tickets just to see each attraction! It's all attractions in 1 place! (:

A lot of people trying to get a good shot of the Panda!!

The enclosure is so much friendly at Ocean Park too! We were very near to the pandas!! And there wasn't much obstructions and hindrance from taking a good shot. The one at River Safari had too many plants and trees that the pandas were blocked most of the time. 

Check out the shots I took of the panda!!!!!

SAM_3206

SAM_3207

The panda was soooo close to me!! Super excited!! :D :D 

SAM_3211
Me looking awkward with a panda hat! (whatever you call that)

SAM_3178
Super cute souvenirs which I should have gotten too ):

Walked over to the amusement park area where all the rides were at! 

IMG_1693
We took this Whirly Bird!!! Really swings HIGH!!!

IMG_1692
Nope, refused to take The Flash ride which goes 360 degrees round, old already, heart can't take it lol!

They have nice walls at Pacific Pier too! :D

We went up the Ocean Park Tower!! We went 72 metres into the air! Stunning views of the South China Sea from atop Ocean Park Tower, located 200m above sea level, where a gently rotating viewing room provides 360 degrees of sun, sea and sky. Ranked as one of the tallest observation towers in Southeast Asia, we were able to see clear to Aberdeen and the outlying islands!!

Took the cable car back this time round! (: 

The queue was madness but thankfully it moved pretty fast. And it was sunny, if not we would have to wait in the cold! 

SAM_3331

With Ocean Park attractions located on two different sides of a mountain and wide swaths of sea in between, riding the Cable Car provides unprecedented views of the surrounding area, the sea, and the entire park.

Back on land of the packed Ocean Park!!

Ended with my favorite part of Ocean Park- Old Hong Kong! 

SAM_3386

Ocean Park is bringing back the culture of Hong Kong in the '50s -'70s. Visit this brand new zone to relive the early days of the territory where we grew up! Old Hong Kong will bring back the many memories of life back then, a culture that will be with us forever. Step aboard the Heritage Tram and savor the sounds and tastes of yesteryear. Be mesmerized by the colors and activities of life in Old Hong Kong on authentically recreated streets and scenes. Be a part of the past and bring home some antique souvenirs to keep the memory alive!
