My First Plane Ride: Hong Kong

The first time I was able to ride the plane was year 2004. Our family is going to Hong Kong for a 3-day vacation. It was the first time I saw a plane up close and as a teenager going up in a developing country - it's like a dream country. Below is the summary of what I remember from a trip that happened almost 10 years ago:

  • Eating hot noodles in one of the small eatery in Hong Kong. They served it in such big bowls!
  • Having breakfast in McDonald's and was seriously shocked that they don't serve fries - they still have hash browns though.
  • Shopping galore at a Giordano shop which was on a 50%-off sale.
  • Mother asking a complete stranger for directions in Filipino - as it turns out the person she's talking to is from Malaysia.
  • Riding the cable car in Ocean Park
  • Riding the train which goes through the sea - seriously scary. I was imagining a movie when the tunnel would collapse
  • Going to their market and buying souvenirs
  • Staying in a beautiful hotel
  • Cold weather
  • Seeing school uniform with knee-high skirt like the Anime - in the Philippines, our school uniform skirt would normally be below the knee.
There you go. A quick summary of what I remember happening in HK. As a bonus (and an update), here are some photos from that vacation. My mom recently learned how to use the scanner and she's been scanning a lot of pictures from the past.

This is the very long escalator in the Ocean Park.
I remember, Papa joking that the escalator is the ride.
