Day 2 Holiday In Hong Kong, In July 2014

Day 2 has just begun as it was a Sunday, I attended mass at St Joseph Church and went to Pret A Manger at IFC for a quick breaky of Smoked Salmon Brioche and a cup of aroma cappuccino. Then I went to Pier 5 to meet my aunt and uncle at 10 am and leave for Cheung Chau.

The ferry, pictured above, took us to Cheung Chau.

As Cheung Chau is mainly a fishing village, we saw lots of boat along the shoreline.

The first doggy I spotted on the island was this doggy sunbathing in the sun.

There were two students trying to bring lots of heavy equipment back to the Ferry using a trolley but couldn’t manage the weight and my uncle chipped in to help.

Once we descended from the hill, my uncle was in need of drinks. And we found quite some stalls selling snacks. There was this shop with many photos indicating that it was somewhat a famous shop for its huge fishballs.

I don’t really like Fishballs so we chose Squid Balls. They like to dip the balls into some sauces like curry and satay but my aunt doesn’t like sauces so we have it plain.

More exploration of the island. It is quite a self contain island with eatery, supermart and market too.

Spotted quite a number doggies, some shy, some cute and some lovely.

Tin Hau Temple

Cheung Chau has quite a number of Temple and here is another famous one, Tin Hau Temple.

Since it is a fishing village, there are fishing activities and a group practising for dragon boat.

Another famous eat is the frozen fruits. There were frozen pineapples, watermelon and some other fruits. I got a frozen pineapple.

Finally, it was late and time to go back to Hong Kong Island for dinner before heading back hotel for a rest. We have Roast Goose at Yung Kee Restaurant.

Oh ya, I spotted a MTR Fare Saver at the Cheung Chau Ferry Pier. So don’t forget to look out for it and tap your MTR card.
