A little chika about our HK holiday

I still haven't uploaded our Holiday pictures,, we've got heaps of them and some are still with my sister and she told me that she will just put them all in a CD,,so I'm still waiting for it..
Anyway, I have some pictures here that was taken at HOngKOng...
We arrived HongKong on December 20 till the 24th ,, so we had 4 days to do sight seeing, a bit of shopping and met up with my sisters , brother and my mum ..

We were originally gonna stay at Disney Hollywood hotel and we were suppose to get the Disney vacation packages ,, but we changed the accommodation since my family are staying in Tsim Sha Tsui I decided that it is better to be close with them so its easy to travel together and go wherever we like , we stayed at Holiday Inn Golden Mile , it was a convenient because close to the MTR station , the hotel was not too bad,, the room is cozy , the Buffet breakfast is good,, the downside was the location , where pros are hanging outside the hotel,, gangs and drug dealers too,, my hubby smokes outside and often get an offer from pros, dug dealer and even gay!!!! OMG!!!!!!!! Hubby was so shocked ,,, last time we were walking as a family he was approached and offered a pot, and heroin,,,,Hubby was so annoyed at them.... the dealers saw him with his family but still and hubby was holding on to our boy's hand ,,, what a nerve of those guys!!!!!
My hubby, being a Causcasian he stands out among the rest and they know that he is a tourist,,, so they always target him...... So the last days he just smoke in the toilet instead so he wont go out anymore...
Thank Goodness no troubles happened during our stay there...
So dont stay in the hotel people!!!!!! we didnt know because we just booked it through a travel agent ,, if we did it ourselves we could have seen a review on tripadvisor... only later that we find out a bout similar reviews about this place...

But in general ,, we had a great time in Hongkong it was our first visit there and we are amazed with their rail system which is very efficient ...

Shopping??? we didnt do much shopping we were busy going around places for sight seeing , but we did a little bit and I still find stuff that are expensive and some are just reduced a little bit,,, so Nope didnt enjoy the shopping there!!!!

All in all,, been there done that, we've seen the place and we might not go back there in the future , had FUN but that was it!!!!
