Day 3 – Sunday 11th September
We were so tired from the previous days, hence we decided to take the day easy. I know I was scheduled to meet Nisa – a fellow blogger, on the afternoon, but there was nothing else scheduled in particular that day.
My mum and brother decided to sleep longer, and while waiting for them to get ready me and R had a stroll around our hotel. Our morning walk led us to Marks and Spencer grocery store and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s not like I used to shop at M&S when I lived in England.. lol I couldn’t afford it :p but I was excited to find out that they sell crumpets :)))). I bought 2 packs to bring home and still have some pieces in my freezer now lol.
After they were ready we took the bus from the bus stop in front of our hotel to Repulse Bay. Lucky us, it was sunny! I did not swim, but at least I got to enjoy some breeze and pretty view.
Without us realising, it was time for lunch. R had an idea to go back to that “mysterious” restaurant in Wan Chai because he still could not get over the noodles. It seemed like he was not the only one, so we ended up going there again for lunch.
After lunch we took the Tram ride just for a sight seeing. Mum seemed to enjoy it a lot, we got to see other parts of Hong Kong that previously we did not get to see because we always took the MTR underground.
Then it’s time to meet Nisa in Mongkok area. While me and R met Nisa, My mum and brother spent some time shopping, so it’s win – win for all! Hehehe.
I met Nisa with her adorable son – Bazyl. We had dessert in a cafe (forgot the name now hahaha), and had a good conversation until it’s time for us to part ways. Meeting her reminded me of why I love this blogging community, I love the fact that I got friends all over the world and so happy that we had a great time offline just like we were talking though our blogs online :D.
Afterwards R and I met my Mum and brother at Harbour City. We spent some time doing window shopping while waiting for Symphony of Lights that was scheduled at 8 PM.

#chiHKDiary 20:00 PM • One of popular tourist attractions in Hong Kong is Symphony of Lights – a laser show which happens every night at 8 PM sharp in Tsim Tsa Tsui. Normally people would see it from the pier, close to the MTR station/where the shops are. But, last night we found a good spot which is located on the parking lot rooftop of Harbour City mall so I could take this shot ✨ and that concludes my weekend break in Hong Kong. Thanks HK, you've been amazing and could be best if only it was not raining that much 😂⛈
Then, before going back to the hotel, we had a nice dinner in Jamie’s Italian to celebrate a special kind of event. I’ll share the story in my next post 🙂
