Stanley, a junk and some flashy lights
I wont say much about Stanley, there is after all only so much one can say about it.Today was the first day that I went to Stanley Plaza,we grabbed the usual bus (have a look at Stanley directions) and got off at the plaza stop this time. We walked down some escalators and found ourselves by this lovely ‘love’ wall’! Obviously this meant more photos and then taking a few moments to just enjoy the view. Afterwards we took a mad dash to find something to drink, with caffeine preferably.I headed in to MacD’s (longest queue of my life!!!) and Ay got hot coffee at Starbucks, then we meandered. We saw a girl doing weird and awesome Yoga poses for photo’s and we got to see some wonderful sun.
After our meander through the plaza towards the boat dock we then turned our attention to the market. Ay was thirsty after we saw some people walking around with straws poking out of coconuts, so we went and got one. I decided to try it as well and realised that I definitely do not like coconut juice, definitely! We were on a shopping mission, well to be fair it was more of an intelligence gathering mission. Ay did buy a little something for herself which was really pretty and looked great on, but mostly we just wanted to compare with Ladies market.
After a few hours of insane heat we decided it was time to head back as we still wanted to get to TST in time for the light show. Ay had discovered this cute restaurant at the Harbour on her exploring day, so she took me there for dinner. it was really cute, but as with many restaurants in Hong Kong there was a lot of poor planning involved. One has to order the food first then only find a table. Often you are left standing holding your food and just hoping someone doesn’t steal a table from you.
We ended up not taking a Junk for the light show, it would have been such a waste! The light show is ok, but to be honest I dont think I would want to waste my money on taking the Aqua lunar junk for it. We watched the show and then had enough of it so we headed down to the dock for the boat we were taking. It was pretty awesome getting on the Junk, spacious comfy seating at the top and one free drink. We spent an hour of comfort chatting away and enjoying the experience. The boat was stunning and it has a comfy feel to it.
When my sister visits I will definitely take her on one, but this time I want to do the island one instead.
We headed home in happy exhaustion, knowing that tomorrow would be our last day to see everything she wanted to see.
