Finally I am able to post about my vacation in Hong Kong! So I went to Hong Kong from 21 July till 23 August and I had an amazing time! Unfortunately my vacation is going to end tomorrow.
Here I was able to play flight attendant which was one of the most awesome parts of my complete journey. I was flying from Amsterdam (The Netherlands) to Hong Kong and I got bored the last 3 hours so I started to chat with a really nice flight attendant called Quincy. He told me everything of his job and showed me lots of things on the plane I’ve never seen (like the cargo of the plane)! (sorry for the quality, my mom photographed it… :P)
Me and Wing Shuen at Starbucks. Haha if you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Starbucks. So this vacation was really awesome because 5 Chinese friends from the Netherlands were also on vacation in Hong Kong! And I was able to see them all!
Starbucks for sale in popular Hong Kong supermarket Park n Shop. Haha I couldn’t believe this, they even sell Starbucks in supermarkets. I also saw mooncakes for sale in Starbucks. D:
A cockroach on the ceiling. Don’t worry, you can’t find these in places where tourists visit. XD I was sleeping in a village where my grandma lives and they have cockroaches living there. Luckily I’ve seen only 4 in my whole vacation of 5 weeks. D: – So what happened with this cockroach? Simple, my mom killed it 1 minute later after I took this picture.
Game + Anime Expo. Went to the Game and Anime expo in Hong Kong with my best friend. Pure awesomeness – yeah, that hat is from the anime “One Piece”.
Me, Wing Shuen, Andy and Sinyee: Dutch friends who also went on vacation. And we managed to catch up! I still remember we dreamed (when we were 9 or 10) of being in Hong Kong together. It just came true.
At Mong Kok: one of the busiest city’s in HK. They even close some ways that are actually made for cars for the crowd. (in the evening)
Me and Chun at Langham Palace (One of Mong Kok’s malls): This mall had a really cute temporary presentation. It was the lifestyle in Hong Kong displayed on cardboard.
At Tsim Sha Tsui: The view from Tsim Sha Tsui on Central and Admiralty.
At Stanley: Don’t think Hong Kong is full of big buildings only! If you visit the opposite of all those buildings you’ll come across this.
I did looooads of shopping beside sightseeing and I didn’t got the time to see EVERYTHING in 5 weeks. Hong Kong is just packed with sooo many things you can do that it was impossible for me to do it all in 5 weeks. If you want to see more you can visit my album on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=189830&id=674517290. I’ve put it temporarily on public.

Yesterday I was on a day trip through the Netherlands and it was so much fun!
Here are some pictures:
Yesterday was real fun. A bummer that I didn’t knew that Helena was there too, otherwise we could have hang out together. Another bummer was that I couldn’t find my Adidas shoes in the Adidas Store in Rotterdam. =( I hope I’m able to find them somewhere else.
