The 1st day was a magical one indeed..
Waking up early at 230am.. or rather I didnt sleep at all due to the excitement.. we got ourselves prepared ready for a day of adventure.. Dad and Dear set off from the Budget Terminal heading straight to Macau.. while I alighted at Terminal 1..took Jetstar flight to HK Airport instead..In case you are wondering why such an arrangement.. it will take some time for me to explain..so let's do away with this explanation and jumped right into the adventure for that day haha..
I reached HK Airport at ard 1030am.. took my luggage and saw Krispy Kremes.. have always heard wonders of how their donuts rock.. so i quickly got myself 6 of them.. really different from the kind of donuts we ate in sg.. i feel they are very soft.. yummy.. you just cant stop eating tilll u are really full.. no joke!
I wandered ard and saw the Airport Express.. took the MTR to Tung Chung..
scenery at Tung Chung MTR Station
since is still earlie b4 Dear reach Disneyland.. i went to CityGate mall(whose name i hope is correct haha) at Tung Chung.. at tat time.. cuz is winter time.. shops are full of winter clothes which will not be applicable in singapore at any time.. so I didnt really look at them.. even the shoe shops are full of boots.. boots is the IN thing over at HK.. every lady on streets wear boots.. haha
at ard 1pm.. i made my way to the Disneyland Station.. I think is the last day of the Xmas celebration.. full of people in the Disney Train.. i thought people wun go le since is the last day but obviously Im very wrong.. queued up for 30min to get the tickets.. maybe that day is a non--peak day.. so cheaper.. peak days like 1st jan cost more than non-peak days.. another reason why so many people tat day.. waiting after some time.. Dear finally arrived.. Dad already settled down in Macau, ready to comb the casinos..and so we quickly get ourselves ready to comb Disneyland in HK too haha..
I was pretty excited.. my fav cartoon characters are still Disney pals since young.. and finally I got to see Mickey and Minnie! was kinda confused where to go and quickly got ourselves a map.. there are like 4 main areas in Disneyland to explore if im not wrong.. One is the Main Street.. where there is this museum on disney history, animation academy, "fire station", little gift shops with intricate designs.. a very tall and beautiful xmas tree.. and something got my eye immd.. Pluto in the house!.. so we rushed to join the queue.. i tink go Disneyland.. one of the activities you can do is to queue up to take pics with these cartoon characters.. I do not mind queueing up cuz I already had in mind to take pics with them haha! the more the merrier.. so there we are with pluto.. den abt an hour later.. we saw mickey and minnie! yeah.. oh.. and not forgetting there are mani people tat day.. so cutting queues is a norm.. haha..
but tat is it.. i didnt see any cartoon characters except for snow white.. cinderella.. beauty and the beast.. which I am not reallie interested in.. i wanna see pooh bear but he is nowhere to be found :( we took the disney railway..which is like monorail moving ard the park to the castle.. during the journey.. we saw this tomorrowland where this is this Buzz Lightyear... the jungle where you catch tarzan.. lilo+stitch.. lion king characters.. and even a track for go-kart kind of activity for the show "Cars"..
the highlights was this Christmas Parade where you see all the cartoon characters come tgt.. view the video for a better view.. is totally fun to be in the crowd.. very interesting performance.. during evening time.. there's this lightings of the castle.. you know those castle in fairy tales.. the lightings were cool.. and with that kind of weather @ 11C.. i really enjoy such feeling.. we also queued for this Golden Mickey Show.. is like a "Award Ceremony"..machiam 金马奖 in Disneyland one with performances..very nice!...

At the Golden Mickey Show:
the park closes at 10pm that day.. at 9pm.. there's this fireworks show.. i feel is so much better than our national day.. no fight.. throughout this xmas celebration at Disneyland.. everynight also got firework display.. and it lasts for ard 20-30min i think.. same thing.. it's a magnificient display!
Nightscene at Disneyland:
it was very late when we left Disneyland.. ard 1030pm.. the weather is chilly cuz of the wind.. to think we still have ferry to catch to go back to Macau and with my tired feet.. i practically dragged myself.. I think we reached back Macau Beverly Hotel @ 130am.. Dad is still not back.. goodness.. i called him and he say he still playin @ Grand Lisboa Casino.. must say Beverly Plaza Hotel is very good.. good location near to the big casinos.. spacious and nice bed.. time to rest!
