Welcome to my world.

With no sleep and still woozy from all the wine consumed at the Kobe IX event last night, I, along with BAE, made it to NAIA Terminal 3 with time to spare for our 5:40 am flight to one of my favorite cities in the world. Can you guess where?

I picked up this selfie (mono) stick from CDR-King and wrapped the handle with Angelo F*CKING Mendez's sticker.

I'm not even complaining since the airfare was hella cheap. (bought 4 months ago)

Here we go!

It can't get any better than this.

Round trip Airport Express plus unlimited MTR rides for 3 days. Purchased online for only HK$250 with a HK$50 rebate upon returning the card. Such a great deal!

The long walk from the Airport Express Station to the MTR station.

AIRBNB > Hotels. I paid 2 nights and got the 3rd night for free. Another great deal! Stay HERE next time you visit Hong Kong. It's in a quiet neighborhood near restaurants, Southorn Playground and the MTR station. You'll thank me for it. :)

Nice view, eh?

We walked around for 30 minutes going from bank to bank looking to have some money changed and ended up here. Best rates in Wan Chai and only charged us HK$40 for the transaction. (other banks wanted HK$100)

We wanted Sun Kee noodles for our first HK meal but when we got to the spot we saw this.

We missed the last train so we walked from Central to Wan Chai. Forget cabbing it!
 photo IMG_6046_zpse66201ef.jpg

I wanted to stay away from American fast food joints during the trip but since everything was closed we ended up here.
 photo IMG_6048_zps33cb49ab.jpg

I thought this was gross.
 photo IMG_6049_zpsa8bd371d.jpg

Until we saw this. Shout out to McDonald's on Johnston Road!
 photo IMG_6051_zpsfac12bde.jpg

I'm glad to be back. I wonder if I still have friends here. Billy Pang, Mike Chung, Gary Co, Kevin Ma and Edison Chen, you there?

Tomorrow we take on the city!
