Yesterday was a really quiet day for me. I got up very late and went to Causeway Bay for some shopping. But due to the cold I wasn't really in shopping mood. I just took a few pics of the christmas decoration and left with a little breakfast for some relaxing in the kowloon park. I stayed for an hour but didn't take any pics at all. I spent most of the time in the hotel that afternoon. I just left it for an hour to get me dinner.
Today I wasn't feeling any better but kicked my ass out of the hotel at around 11 am. I took the MTR to Diamond Hill to visit the Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery.
If you ever go to Hong Kong you should definetly pay this place a visit. It's such a lovely garden surrounded by all the big buildings.
For all shopping fans is a big shopping center near the station. It's 3 story high and lots of cool brands. I spent my money on gifts for myself and my sisters. I can't speak about it yet but promise to show it later once I gave it to them.
I even got a cute bunny as a gift for my big purchase. I went to the supermarket in Diamond Hill to and found some good stuff I wanted to try. The cashieer was really nice and took the time to explain me how to cook it.
Diamond Hill is a great place to spent a few hours to stay away from the crowd in tourist areas.

My third day in Hong Kong is nearly over.
Today. I took the MTR and the train to Tai Po market. It's a place at the New Territories.
I was looking for the Old District Office North but wasn't able to find it. So I just went for a walk and discovered the Tai Po Waterfront park. The park is around 22 ha and has some little gardens with different themes. It a perfect place for young kids to discover the joy of nature.
On my way back I made a short stop in Tai Wai to visit the Che Kung tempel.
For dinner I met with Wendy in Mong Kok for a big bowl of noodles and some toy shopping .

Today I had a really relaxing day. I got up at around 9.30 and started with a refreshing shower. I have a shower with glass walls built into my room so I can watch TV while sitting on the toilett or having a shower (lol). I left the hotel at 11 to meet up with Wendy at the Tai Koo station. After that we met up with Wendy's hubby, Mo and her family and Helen in lovely restaurant for lunch. I totally love the chinese food in Hong Kong it's so different from the one you get in chinese resturants in germany.
After lunch we had some bubble blowing fun with Dortie and Sammie (Mo's most adorable kids). Later we went to Wendy's new home. It's so lovely and since I now know the interior I can make some stuff for her in matching colors. Later in the evening we went to Mo's home for dinner.
I had the most perfect day and I'm a very lucky girl to have so many lovely friends here in Hong Kong. They always make my stay the perfect holiday. For more pictures head over to my Flickr account.
So after I checked in, Wendy and I went out to find a bank so I could pick up some cash. I bought a card for my cellphone as well to make it easier and cheaper to talk with Wendy,Mo and Helen. Wendy and I went out for dinner to the same restaurant like last year.The food was good just like last year but stupid me managed to throw a full box of chopsticks from our table. It was so embarassing.
Back in the hotel we tried to make my sony tablet work. I had some problems with the wifi but right after midnight it started to work and it's still working. Stay tuned for more :D
