another trip to Hong Kong, I hope 0

It was hard shopping for the right Christmas gifts while I was in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Though Hong Kong’s toys were alot cheaper than Malaysia and the toys were in abundance, I personally prefer personalized books or gifts for my little boy.

Being a lover of books, I took him to Page One in Harbour City after a trip to Toy R Us in Ocean Terminal. What I loved most about the Toy R Us in Ocean Terminal was the numerous capsule machine available at the entrance of the store. It was amazing! I bought several of the Cars series and that got my boy so excited too. Now that we are back in Malaysia, I can only look forward to another trip to Hong Kong next year.

Besides fine dining and gourmet delicacies, Hong Kong is an interesting place to watch for the latest trends. When it comes to a grand occasion, the people put in great efforts to put on their best including a fine gown and tuxedos for the sophisticated individuals.

You can expect to pay a little more for fine food in restaurants even if they are located amidst the old buildings. The HOng Kong people love food and care to find the best to satisfy their gastronomic cravings. I am indulging in a new dessert everyday before heading back home. It feels sad to know that I will be missing all the unique dessert varieties at Hui Lau San, Honeymoon dessert and Lucky dessert stores!

I am feeling a little melancholic as this is my last night at The Lanson Place hotel. Though it’s located at a quiet corner next to a door hardware shop and a couple provision shops, it is so near to all the action and activities.

The Lanson Place is one hotel I would strongly recommend for anyone who is planning to visit Hong Kong. The staff is friendly, helpful, sensitive to the guests’ needs and very professional. The service is fantastic though it’s not a 5 star hotel. Near to Jardine Bazaar where all the good food is, it is so convenient to taste all the local delicacies in an unpretentious setting. I felt kinda sad that we are moving to another hotel tomorrow. But then again, I will be back again to the Lanson Place hotel the next time I visit Hong Kong.

put on your good walking shoes 0

It’s been a very busy week for me, as I prepare for our family vacation to Tokyo, Hong Kong and Macau. This looks like a ‘busy trip’ for us – full itinerary, that’s what I mean.

Whenever we go on family vacations, hubby and myself tend to choose walking more than taxis, unless it’s a place like Australia where we need to drive more than walk. But when you travel to places like Tokyo, HOng Kong and especially macau, they say – be ready to walk! I believe this is great for those who are fighting weight loss issues since they wouldn’t need to take any fat burners during their trip – lol!

I am now deciding which shoes to bring along so that I can walk for great distances without getting sore feet and leg cramps. Looking for good walking shoes for your next walking itinerary, check out the FREE SHIPPING at TheWalkingCompany.com with $100 purchase.

For those who like to stay in spacious apartment hotels in Hong Kong, take a look at the Lanson Place. Situated in a strategic location in the heart of causeway bay, this spacious apartment hotel looks handsome with a touch of colonial charm. With close proximity to the malls and shopping stores in Causeway Bay, this is a great apartment hotel to base yourself for both business and leisure, especially great for parents who like more room for their children. I can almost say that it is a family friendly hotel in Hong Kong!

Close to Hong Kong’s famous nightlife, this hotel is still able to offer you a truly peaceful retreat and it is great for family travel to Hong Kong too. Built in 2005, it is approximately 43 km from Hong Kong International Airport. It is also conveniently situated within just 3 minutes walking distance from the Causeway Bay MTR Station, close to Victoria Park and 2 blocks away from Times Square Shopping Centre and designer shops. The rooms range in size from 380 square feet to 1,900 square feet. They offer the latest provisions for home comfort and convenience, including kitchenettes, flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi internet access throughout the entire hotel. Only thing is, there is no treadmill for those who need to keep their heart rate pumping!

With such attractive facilities and features, I’m all tempted to check out the best accommodation rates at the Lanson Place.
