The Fakawi Traveller @ The Peak, Hong Kong.
It was a sunny morning and I took my time organising myself for the day. Walked to the Star Ferry terminal and boarded the next available ferry. I then took a double decker bus from the Hong Kong ferry terminal to the Peak which was about 45 minutes  away.

The ride took me through the town passing places that I visited yesterday. The ride to the Peak was an interesting one as the contour of the journey changed from a normal flat straight road to a winding inclining journey, passing through affluent residential areas which were built along steep hillsides. It was quite a scary ride for me as I was on the top deck of a double decker bus looking down at ridges that were very steep.

At The Peak, one could view Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in a panoramic photo shot from the Kowloon Harbour right up to a glimpse of the old Kai Tak Airport. Visualising now how it would look like at night. Wish I had taken up on the invitation by the Malaysian tourists  when they invited me to follow them to the Peak last night …. With the presence of dark clouds visible from The Peak, I knew that it was time to go back after spending more than an hour there. I took the Peak tram from the summit to the tram station near Wan Chai. The short trip going down by the tram was a good experience as it’s decline from the summit was at a fast speed. I went back to the hotel for a short nap and a change from my sweaty clothes.

The weather started looking gloomy and after refreshing myself, I decided to just walk around the vicinity of my hotel. On my way to Habour City I managed to have a peek into a wet market. Harbour City is a high end shopping complex and also an affluent Marine club open to members only. Nothing much to see there and I continued my walk past the Star ferry terminal and into the Avenue of Stars as in Los Angeles ,where I could find plaques with the names of famous Hong Kong film and arts personalities embedded in the walkway. I managed to find the plaque of my favourite Hong Kong actor which is Chow Yun Fatt who acted in a lot of films and one of them is one of my all time favourite which is the movie titled “God of Gamblers”. Kinda bit disappointed though, both of my favourite actresses’ plaques were not there which were Nancy Kwan and Do Do Cheng.

I took the MRT to the Mong Kok night market which is only 2 stations away from my hotel. As I stepped out from the station it rained heavily. I took refuge by the five foot alleys of shops and had my dinner there at an Indian restaurant. Most of the stalls at the market were closing and I made my way back to the hotel to retire for the day ……….
