Hong Kong: Day 9 – Mong Kok and Hong Kong Disneyland

When I don't blog about something it's way too easy to forget about it, which proves the matter in the fact that I already cannot recall what happened. I had to ask my parents what happened in order to remember so let's quickly write it down before I forget again!

In the early morning we went for a walk around Tin Hau where my dad once lived in his high school years. He pointed out the buildings and some local areas like the local schools. We then headed to Tin Hau to catch the MTR to Mong Kok to do some shopping before headed to Disneyland. We did visit the Mong Kok Computer Centre, but most of the shops there were still closed. That was a different story at Langham Place, but full of designer stores, it wasn't really where I was looking for.

Finally Sino Centre was located as the place which I wanted to be at if I wanted to purchase anime merchandise, but it was the same story there, most of the stores were still closed. As it was actually getting rather late, we opted to just head to Disneyland.

It was exciting taking the special MTR train to Disneyland, the windows themselves were Mickey heads and the insides were decorated with statues of iconic Disney characters. I won't really go into detail about everything we went to but there was a lovely fountain before we went inside, there was a train to ride when we entered, the Animation displays were interesting, and the only parade of the day at 3:30 was strangely very good, but I have a feeling part of the factor was because it was partially in Chinese. The fireworks seemed worth staying for, but of course it would have been nice to have shared it with a special someone. :)

Souvenirs weren't very good though.
