Hong Kong: day 8 and 9
On my 8th day I woke up with terrible pain in my stomach. As soon as I moved I felt like passing out. But since I didn't want to waste even a single day of my vacation I pulled myself together to meet up with Sabrina and Wendy for some "extreme shopping". They know a place where all the reatilers buy their stuff for a reduced price, something I didn't want to miss. Packed with 2 dresses, a blouse, a shirt and a leather bag we went back. About the same time my stomach started to hurt again. Luckily there was a free seat otherwise I would have probably puked inside the train. Back in the Hotel I fell asleep for about 4 hours. In the evening I just went out to get some salted bretzels and cola, which is something like a secret receipe to settle the stomach.
Today I already felt a little better. But since I'm not sure about my stomach I decided to pass on the breakfast to meet up with Wendy, Sabrina and Vincent (Sabrina's husband) to go to Stanley (like we did last year) It's a very popular area where the locals like to go on the weekends due to the beautiful beach. After a typical chinese lunch (I didn't eat to much due to my stomach) we went shopping (again :D). I bought three 100% cashmere tops and a jacket for only 56€ ! Where else can you buy stuff like that for such a good price ? After a little snack in one of the restaurants (fish & chips) and some chatting Wendy, Sabrina and Vincet dropped me off at Mo's house for a yummy dinner. I'm back in the hotel now to pack my bags since I have to move to another room tomorrow.
