We booked Malaysian Airlines and got lucky to be upgraded to Business class, we were to stay in Hong Kong for 2 nights and 1 in Macau, I usually love to plan and write an itinerary whenever I travel, because that helps to cone down the places I want to visit in priority and places to be missed if not important.

We stayed at Park hotel for the 1st night due to huge rush and unavailability (obviously we would not have got a desired hotel on last moment plans) plus Chinese New Year was round the corner. We explored the streets at Tsim Sha Tsui at Kowloon, it was a shopping paradise with all the luxury brands and street shops sandwiched between lanes and hotels. I did feel like having a look at Tiffany and Gucci though but I had to control myself until the last day, which I only had proposed to be kept as “Shopping Day” (my bad).
I loved how the streets were so colourful, crowded and alive with music , the most I loved was the cold, windy weather in HK. I love winters, I was happy to know the temperature would be low, but I did not expect the place to be so windy, and hence I shopped for - overcoats, scarf and boots. Both my hubby and brother had kept jackets and pullovers, and I did not take them seriously but now I did. But I was loving the feel, the cold, chills and wind, walking on the streets at midnight all wrapped in scarves and gloves is what I had always desired.
The currency of Hong Kong that w got exchanged, I totally loved the colors and designs on their notes.
So many colors and firecrackers and the lights on the buildings and the river bank complemented the whole show.
