lomeigai糯米鸡 was good.

we were down to 4pax. one friend had a later flight by tigerair (we were taking jetstar) so he took the time to go to macau last evening. another friend extended his stay a his family was traveling with him.

dimsum breakfast was HK$204=S$9.50pax. i guess that’s where singapore cannot match. now we have imperial treasure, crystal jade, canton paradise etc standard about same but would cost like S$20pax.

Hong Kong Air Ticket, Hotel & Transport Planning 2-6Jun2015

jetstar had a SG50 promotion. it was like S$50 to HK & about S$100pax including fees & taxes. it seems lame to go hong kong just because of cheap air tickets, but i like hong kong, it’s a place i like to go for eating & hiking anyway. i can live in hong kong actually just for the colder months. haha!^^

i wanted to go in nov. actually but sis is busy after oct, and i was already travelling with wife to cornwall 7-18may2015.

so i am back hong kong 2-6jun2015. our 2pax jetstar return singapore to hong kong was S$210.^^

even though it was just 2 months after my last hong kong trip with wife & son on 3-6Apr2015.

jetstar check in was at terminal 1. it was quite convenient that departure gate was next to the sky train to T2. so it was no hassle to get to asia treasure lounge at T2.

asia treasure T2 nasi lemak

no food provided on jetstar, or rather good money for not so good food. so grab what we could at the lounge.

the nasi lemak was pretty good. egg, otah, perkedel, rice all good. for me though, nasi lemak is first ikan kuning, second chicken wing. 🙂

low cost carrier mostly remote bay (using bus ferry to plane) for both departure from changi & arrival at hong kong. though it was using aerobridge for both departure from hong kong & arrival at singapore.

there was a MTR counter after customs & even before getting out to the arrival hall, which had almost no queue so i got 2 octopus cards (HK$50 deposit & HK$100 stored-value) within minutes.

we walked out of the arrival terminal & towards bus bay.

i booked 4 nights at royal park hotel at shatin. so it was really very convenient commuting from the airport.

hong kong airport bus A41 goes direct from airport to shatin and stopped right in front of royal park hotel, which was only the second stop after shatin bus interchange.

flight was late so we arrived 2.15pm & was at the A41 bus bay around 2.50pm.

journey took 50minutes & just HK$22.30 using the octopus card. it’s fixed one fare only so you only required to tap once with octopus card when boarding the bus. 🙂

it’s double-decker. there was a luggage rack both in the lower & upper deck. i always took the upper deck & put on seat belt. strangely though on return from hotel to airport, the bus we took did not have safety belt!

hong kong mtr map

shatin is in new territory so a bit far from action (well depends on what action you are looking for). when i travel with wife, we would stay at tsimsahtsui & not shatin.

while royal park is “in theory” next to shatin station (& shatin bus interchange for that matter), it was a 5-10minutes walk from hotel through newtown plaza to the station, covered & aircon-ed of course.

from shatin, one needs to change train twice to get to shamshuipo, tsimshatsui, & to central. so it’s slightly inconvenient.

also shatin station is actually not underground line but the east rail line 东铁线that goes to罗湖 for entering into shenzhen深圳. & so the inter-change at 九龙塘that connects the MTR to the rail is a rather long walk.

we checked into royal park hotel about 4pm. nice hotel. i stayed here once before 5 years back. quite happy with it now as then. 🙂

we decided we could not miss timhowan, so went to the usual shamshuipo outlet after checking in to the hotel, & got there about 4.40pm, zero queue.

since we had a very late dimsum at 5pm. we decided to go much later in the evening for dinner, which we did at keung kee chicken porridge 强记鸡粥 my usual daipaidong 大排档 past 9pm.
