I am still deciding whether to stay in hostel or a hotel. There have been good reviews for the hostels whereas hotels in HK are rather small on the other hand. Got to make a decision soon. .....
Most likely I will be taking budget airlines as I am still checking the price daily......

Will let you know if there is any updates or better deals.
Me too looking up jetstar website everyday to check for good deals.

Think my gf would prefer staying in a hotel rather than a hostel. Think we will be staying at YMCA international house.

Anyone can recommend some website for booking of hotels in HK mongkok?

my vote goes to hostel
the other time i went hk, morning 6-7am go off liao
at night reach hostel around 11pm-12am
bath and slp liao, room if too extravagant will be a waste of money as i don't spend much time in the room

Will the rates of the hotel be cheaper if i'll to book directly at the hotel lobby counter? Cos my parents will be in HongKong next week. If its cheaper then i'll get them to reserve room for me.

HI btw, where is the place to see the flag raising... i there is a timgin for it right?

in hongkong now, the temple streets, fayun streets... has nothing much, went to yip fatt yesterday.. pretty bland as well but APM mall is BIG... Symphony of lights is quite amazing but boring as well and the avenue of stars quite cool too.

The stores here usually opens about 10 and the travelling is about 30 mins to an hour... most of the time you will wake upi about 7.30 am

Hope the above helps.. i am gonna get ready for disney land now..

best place to get NDS Lite if you want.
prices here range from HK$1050 from a standard pack to HK$14XX for a package with R4, 1gb card, crystal case + screen protector. They have all colours here, black, white,pink,blue and green.
R4 standalone os only at HK$168 when SG is selling at $50 cheapest.
drop by sino centre at mong kok or golden centre at sham sui po.
these 2 place sell the nds and all other jap vids dvds and animes as well.
r-rated stuff also have.

business, office shirt - G2000 lor. In the building where the Macau ferry is located, at the end of Harbourcity, TST. There is a small G2000 selling stuff quite cheap. They were selling long sleeve shirts at HK$60 only. Of course colour and size not that wide. But cheaper than other outlets.

Watches? You mean the 6 for HK$100 swatch lookalike at Temple Street?

my experiences with watches:
never buy those imitation watches for SGD$30 or above
chances are they will spoil within a year...
bought a 5 matches frm shenzhen for HKD200 i think
less than 1 year, the 'luminious' sticker for one of the 'number' came off

the winding mechanism also got problem

think i'll be better off buying a authentic swatch automatic.

P.S: reason for buying 5 matches is because it's automatic, not because it's 5 matches
