Celebrating My Dad's 50th Birthday In Hong Kong Part I

April 21st, 2010. I went to HongKong with my family. My grandpa was a diplomat, so that's why my family kinda travel everywhere. On 1960, my dad's family lived in Hongkong, and at that time, my dad was born. So this year he'll be 50, and he decided to take the family to his birthplace.  




I think it's kind of a nostalgic time for him, coz he lived there years ago. And for my mom, she's always been in love with HongKong. She told me that HongKong is a heaven for people who loves to shop, and my comment is YES, IT IS HEAVEN. I've only gone to HongKong for twice before and I was only a little kid, I didnt remember anything, so that's why I'm so excited to go this year.


We stayed at Tsim Sha Tsui, it's an urban area in southern Kowloon. Tsim Sha Tsui is a major tourist hub in Hong Kong with many shops and restaurants as well. So I spent the first day in HK walking around Tsim Sha Tsui and also went to the famous Avenue of Stars that looks like the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is located at Victoria Harbour waterfront. There you can see lots of handprints and autographs of actors, such as Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Andy Lau, etc. It's a must to go there! 


And this right here is me taking a pic with my hands on Andy Lau's handprints, and Shodi's shoes stood beside the handprints. And the best part is the Bruce Lee statue! Who doesn't love him? He's so gorgeous I really wanna die when I saw the statue. Still, the view from Avenue of Stars. I really could spend hours there just to feel the wind blows. The weather in Hong Kong is freaking cold, I thought the winter is already ended but it has not! Thankgod I wore my cardigans.


At the end of the day my family and I sat beside Nathan Road, it's the exact place of where we stayed actually. This is the night view of Nathan Road, I know I know, it's amazingly beautiful.
