The Rainbow Blocks - 2017 HK Photo Diary Pt. 3


The sun’s finally out on my last day here in Hong Kong. We decided to start the day by having the national breakfast with local style: dim sum! Luckily we found a dim sum place nearby and when I saw that all who ate there were the local elders, I just knew we found the right place.

One interesting experience was since all who ate there were locals, all the waiters don’t understand any English, so it was pretty confusing for us to make order or even finding a seat (apparently my Mandarin skills were not quite useful while I was there). Finally, we were seated together with one man, aged around 80 and guess what; he was with his Indonesian personal assistant! So the kind lady helped us made the order and the good man even offered to treat us breakfast! But we politely declined it since we just couldn’t afford to accept the treat after all the helps we had been receiving, but we really were so thankful!


We don’t have a fixed itinerary for this day but there was this one place that we wanted to go because it’s pretty; Choi Hung Estate. It was one of the oldest public housing estates in Hong Kong and it’s famous because of the colorful blocks (choi hung itself literally means rainbow).

If you want to get here, get off at Choi Hung station and the building was just at the station’s exit. Best spot to take pictures was at the basketball court which was prettily hidden; it’s located on the parking lot’s rooftop so if you see the parking lot, you’ll find the basketball court at the top of the parking building. There’s nothing to do here besides taking pictures at the basketball court though, so if you are on a tight schedule, you might want to skip this. But if you have plenty of leisure time, this place will be a great spot for taking the perfect Instagram post!


The last destination of my this trip was the Ani-Com Park @ Harbour Fun, located near Hong Kong Convention Center in Wan Chai. We were supposed to go here on the second day while we were visiting Wan Chai but somehow we skipped it so we went back the next day for it.

After the long walks, we took the bus and got off at Causeway Bay for a late lunch and we picked Yoshinoya for its beef bowl. We usually shared all the meals we had while in HK but just that one time everyone finished their bowls because we were all THAT starving LOL. Sadly after lunch I had to say goodbye to the girls because my flight was at the night of the same day. So we parted as I headed to the airport and the girls continued their own adventure.


Just like the time when I departed to HK, I needed to make a transit at KLIA2 and this time it was a 10 FREAKING HOURS transit. I didn’t remember how I managed to survive those crazy 10 hours, but I was just thankful I did. This trip has been a one very fun and memorable, I am so thankful I got to spend the days with girls and we really laughed a lot. I am thankful that they appreciate even my coldest jokes (sometimes I even wonder how I came up with such bad jokes) and grateful that I have such good yet crazy friends.

Now as a closing… I made a vlog! Well, a mini-vlog may be more suitable, since I didn’t talk too much on the video; it’s still very awkward for me to speak by myself holding the camera, but I think for a first time vlogging, I think this was pretty fine. So, what do you think? Is it acceptable, or do you think I should stop and never make these kinds of video ever again? LOL. Let me know what you think and I’ll be very thankful :)
