Since the free holiday was for 4D3N, I asked if we could extend one night, the first night’s accommodation duly paid for by ourselves. Horng helped us to book our first night at the BP International Hotel along Austin Road. For the amount we paid, it was rather worth it. I read some reviews that complained the rooms were small. Herro, you are in Hong Kong?!
In a summary (because I can’t remember details now) Bossini was the most awesome of all awesome shops in Hong Kong! Not only they have my size, their apparel is dirt cheap compared to what I’d have to fork out here! Something that would fit me nicely + doesn’t look like crap would cost like RM60 and above here. I got it for RM25 at Bossini!
Even their Marks & Spencers was cheaper. Geram!
Spotted somewhere in Mongkok, cracked me up:
CHEAPY VIDEOS FTW!
Pottinger Street, Hong Kong
Saw angels’ wings for sale for about RM30. Called FA to ask if she wanted one. Got one for myself, wonder when I would be brave enough to wear it out in public.
Went into a couple of shops selling leather jackets. Sorely tempted because… I don’t know, would sound cool to be able to say, “hang on, let me grab my leather jacket”. Then again, reality sets in that I live in a hot ass tropical country. A raincoat would be more practical.
Bought a cheap ass umbrella because I couldn’t stand the drizzling rain fucking up my line of sight (glasses).
Pinky told me to go to Stanley. It was a great suggestion, so thank you Pinky 😉 I didn’t know about Stanley, so was rather surprised to see that it was popular among tourists. Walked around the place, went to the market where I got this:
Van Gogh’s The Starry Night on my skirt
What? I think it’s awesome 😀
Also spotted this shop:
Alibaba, Stanley, Hong Kong
… where I bought the ballet shoes and high heels and I absolutely LOVE them! Should have gotten more 🙁 Another reason I love them so much is because they stock my size (and above). It seems that Hong Kong women were born with small feet and will die with small feet. When I ranted about this with one of the shoe shop’s proprietor, she exclaimed, “Why, it’s only recent years that shops stock size 39 or 40! Last time the biggest size you could get was 37!” -_-”
While I was looking for pads for Dance Dance Revolution for my boss (because real men prance about on Styrofoam), something in a shop’s window display caught my eye, and I HAD to get it or DIE!
It doesn’t look good now… but wait!
Proof that you don’t need brains to be a great detective
I guess that’s about all that matters.
