Morning to Day 4. Going for dimsum at Maxims then to Citygate factory outlets.
- Dim sum at Maxim's, located at City Hall.
When we arrived:
Before we left:
After the breakfast, we headed back to the MTR.
On the MTR heading to Tung Chung, the (2nd) last station of the line.
Tung Chung is where Citygate, the factory outlet shopping mall, is located. The train ride didn't feel very long, although it's actually one stop away from the airport. We forgot it was a Sunday, so that place was very packed. We spent the rest of the day there till about 3pm. I bought some shirts at Timberland and Esprit. Had lunch at Food Republic, tasted the Chicken Rice and "Hokkien" prawn mee. The chicken rice, apparently famous, tasted pretty authentic but the prawn mee lacks the prawn taste, it's more like a normal seafood noodles.
Done with Citygate. Now moving on to new destinations.
We took the MTR to Mongkok, visited a few electronic stores but bought nothing. Too many people. Walked along Ladies Street and bought a cheongsam for Mayenne to don during Chinese New Year.
Back to hotel. Getting earlier by the day, as we are really tired from all the walking. Maybe we'll go out again later after a rest. Had dinner at a small cosy shop. The wantons are bigger, better and cheaper than Mak's!! I will recommend 桂记云吞面 along Carnarvon Rd.

Day five in HK. About to check out at 8.3am.
Went to the rooftop for the last time to capture the morning glory.
Checked in at the airport. Waiting for the flight at 11.35am.
Ok boarded the plane. It's been a good trip with a different experience from my previous vacations. This HK trip wouldn't be smooth without technology. Thanks to Google Maps, Facebook, Twitter, IM. Most impt, unlimited data service!!! TOUCHDOWN to Singapore land!
