|I <3 HK Disneyland!|
Due to the bad weather, di namin nalibot ang buong Disneyland, plus all my companions were exhausted (maybe because of lack of sleep). But I was surprisingly energetic even if I only had an hour of sleep! I was so sad I didn’t get the chance to ride the Space Mountain (rollercoaster inside a big hump). Wala kasi akong kasama kasi takot sila. Sobrang sayang, though. I just promised to myself that when I come back there, iyang Space Mountain na iyan ang unang-unang sasakyan ko!
|The Disney Castle|
We watched the parade, took pictures with Goofy and waited for the main event—fireworks display! And wow, the fireworks and the castle’s display of lights with music from Disney blew me away! It was one of the most amazing sights I’ve seen in my life so far! While watching, it brought back the memories of my childhood (only the ones that I remember because I have a typical case of childhood amnesia) and it almost brought me to tears. That moment was magical. It warmed my heart. I was really thankful I had the chance to witness that spectacular sight in this lifetime. Akala ko ako lang ang nag-moment ng ganun. Aba, sila din pala! Mga emo! LOL. Napunta lang sa HK, nagsi-EMO-han na! But no, maybe that was really the effect to everyone who watches the fireworks display—you will feel nostalgic. Anyway, as we went back to the guest house, we were all happy na. Nawala ‘yong frustrations dahil sa bad weather and exhaustion due to lack of sleep.
Nagkandaligaw-ligaw kami. I know, I have the poorest sense of direction. Sorry, Ate Chai, for dragging you into this mess. So, nag-lapse na ang 8pm pero di pa namin natutunton ang isa man sa hinahanap namin. Nakakatawa lang kasi yung mga tsekwa na napagtanungan namin, di nila alam yung Symphony of Lights Stars Avenue??? I mean, hello? Do they live there? Come on! Naubos na ang baon kong English, wala pa rin kaming napapala. Parang gusto na naming maglupasay ni Ate Chai sa kalsada sa frustration. But good thing, di naman kami humantong sa ganong tagpo! We’d managed to find the way towards the Star Ferry through the street signs. Dapat pala diniretso na lang namin ang Nathan Road!

Hanggang sa wakas, magsawa na ako sa kakagalugad sa place, we finally headed back to the guest house. Naabutan namin sila na nasa dreamla-la-land na. The moment I stepped inside our room, I suddenly felt extremely tired that I thought I might pass out in the next minute. Two days with almost no sleep at all and very tired from all the walking… and yet di pa rin ako nakatulog nang maayos. My nose was clogged, I felt dizzy, my whole body ached and I’ve no strength at all. I was a mess. Took Alaxan FR for my body pain. I was worried for tomorrow. Baka hindi na ako makasama sa Ocean Park at maratay lang ako sa kama habang sila nag-e-enjoy 🙁 Super pray na lang ako kay Lord na sana bigyan niya ako ng strength for tomorrow. I barely slept at all. And it was a miracle that when I woke up the next morning, I felt okay. The miracle of prayers!!! Thank God! (And Manny Pacquiao for vouching for Alaxan FR.)
|HK Ocean Park spells awesomeness|
HK Ocean Park was awesome!!! Before I went here, I was told by someone that HK OP was a lot more funner than the Disneyland. And she was right. OP is the amusement park for all ages! They have too many exciting rides and attractions! Di ito malilibot ng isang buong araw lang. If you’re planning to go here, you must allocate 2 days for this place, or maybe 3! We rode the Sky Fair (a huge hot-air baloon-like ride and the Rapids. I saw a lot of Panda! They’re so cute!!! We watched the dolphin and sea lion show at the Ocean Theater. We entered the Grand Aquarium and the Sea Jelly Spectacular. And the most exciting ride was the Cable Car ride! LOL. The view below was spectacular kaso nabingi ako sa kakatili ni Ate Agnes. Haha! Para siyang nakasakay sa roller coaster na may sampung loop! Sobrang taas kasi ng cable car.
