I continued my exploration of our new city today. I went over to Lantau Island, out near HK Airport. I went to another outlet mall there, Citygate. I found a replacement pair of black ballet flats, which I desperately needed as my current pair were looking really povo and getting to the point where I was getting quite embarrassed to wear them. OK, not getting to the point, I’m already at that point! 😳
I then realised that Inspiration Lake is pretty close to Citygate, and since I was out there already, I figured I may as well just go and check it out while I’m in the area. Inspiration Lake is part of the Disneyland Resort, so it’s all nice and pristine, and relatively easy to get to, with even a Disneyland MTR station taking you straight there on the cute Disney-themed train 😊
I’d like to go back there again with N, maybe hire a bike and cycle around the lake, and/or even hire one of those pedal boats and pedal around the lake.
I then went and had dinner near Lan Kwai Fong at Central. It was just some random restaurant that I found on OpenRice, this popular dining app here in HK. I got there not long after they opened for their dinner service. I happened to be their first customer for the evening – and their only one for the next hour or so 😳 I felt rather self-conscious for that entire hour, and felt a surge of relief when two friends came to occupy a second table in the restaurant 😆 My phone was also running very low on battery, and I didn’t have a charger on me, so I couldn’t just occupy myself by playing on my phone the entire time. It wasn’t the best time to have your phone low on battery! So I just sat there and tried to be mindful 😌 The juice did eventually run out, so I was also forced to be quite mindful on my trip home 😆
It was a good weekend, I had fun exploring this city 😊 Let’s see where we can go next weekend, since N will be back by then. He flew back to HK tonight, actually, but is flying out again tomorrow, this time to Taipei. I still can’t believe we’re now in North Asia! 😲
