Thank you? Or Thank you?

I LOVE HONG KONG!! Minus the hotel disasters, I still love HONG KONG!
Wish I could stay here longer though, I must come back!
Today we had congee for breakfast. The congee was so good, I think it’s because I hadn’t eaten in a long time. But it really hit the spot! After breakfast, we went to the Hong Kong convention centre, walked to the ferry depot and took a ferry to Kowloon. Kowloon is pretty incredible too. Very modern, in their buildings, and I love their shopping! We took a nice walk through the “Avenue of Stars” and while looking at the Bruce Lee statue, a massive tropical rainstorm down poured on us. *Side Note: Michelle and Louisa, the Toronto tornado rainstorm still takes the cake.*
A whole crowd of people starting running like Godzilla was chasing behind them. All I could see was a huge cloud chasing us and a whole bunch of girls wearing heels screaming their heads off. Luckily, we found some undercover area and didn’t manage to get very wet.
For lunch, we had some Hong Kong style Dim Sum. Exactly how it is back home, except Dim Sum back home is SOO much better. I’m not too sure if that made since..
After lunch, we hit Kowloon’s shopping district and shopped a little, lost some people, and wasted a good two hours. Yeah, we were all pretty mad at some point in the middle of the day. Since we were all pretty upset of how the day was going, we decided to head back to the hotel and eat some good Shanghainese food. Which leads me to where I am right now, in Matthew’s hotel room typing up this entry.
Hopefully, tomorrow will be better day. I had so many high expectations for Hong Kong, but I still LOVE IT! I think tomorrow, we are going to do some more shopping, meeting up with some relatives and visiting some Peak.
Oh, and guess what I found this afternoon in my hotel room? A crack in the ceiling..just wonderful! But I LOVE HONG KONG!
