Now and Then: HK 2018 and 2009

It’s fun to see how things have changed so much (e.g. my kids!) and how things stayed the same (e.g. places where we took pictures) by comparing our recent photos in HK to the ones we took in 2009… it’s a blessing to be able to repeat these wonderful moments.

Miss our family holiday already! 😔😔

Look at the difference of my kids: from toddlers to teens… how time flies. Continue reading

Flying A350-900, Yeay!

I was excited to see what will take us back today: a new Airbus 350-900. This bird is capable for long haul flight. Singapore Airlines even introduced their 15-hours non stop flight from Singapore to New York last year using this bird. But this time, a light job for her: an easy and short HK to Singapore flight for us.

Inside the plane, well nothing special though, as we’re flying on the couch. LOL. Even the relatively new KrisFlight entertainment system is cool, but it was the same as we found on the Boeing 777-300 we rode few days ago.

But still, at least one more plane model is checked! ✅

Refuel at Fuel

We’re back to our usual “Mager Tourist” mode. It’s our term for slow travel. We have no real agenda, but enjoy the time passes by sitting and sipping cup of coffee and relax.

After two days of full day agenda, roaming around HK city and Disneyland, we think our legs deserve a break. And as we haven’t had our proper daily dose of coffee, we need for refuel.

This morning we try Fuel Espresso. A dedicated, quite-upscale coffee place at IFC One Mall in HK. It seems to be quite popular place for coffee connoisseurs in HK.

Apple Fanboy X

Call me Apple fanboy as you wish, but it feels good to get their latest phone (iPhone X) in their flagship store with a spectacular view of HK harbor 😊It’s my first time ever to visit this cool flagship store. It’s located in IFC building near Central. What is so cool with this store is the concept that you can approach the staff in red Apple uniform, and they will enter your purchase through their iPhone.

Back to Hung Hing Toys!

This small toys store near Johnston Road at Wanchai always become my favorite destination whenever I come to Hong Kong. It has one of the most complete toys collection in town. But what attracted me since 2008 was they sell with relatively much cheaper price than in Indonesia. It’s not uncommon for Rafif to find his Gundam’s target at almost half price than back home. No wonder he is like a kid in candy store!

Look at their floor to ceiling toy rack!

Don’t be mistaken with the place among HK street market, but for toys collector, it won’t disappoint.

How to get there: use MTR to Wanchai, and take exit A3. Walk straight towards Johnson Road, and you will see across the road, there’s a small street full with street market vendors just beside KFC. Go walk inside this street and you’ll find this sign:
