9th i changed hotel from stanford to YMCA. IMO YMCA is much better in term of service, location and room space.3pm++ went to yip fatt.. abit disappointing..nothing much...adidas price and design not that appealing...then we went to camelplant building which just opp yip fatt as nike have shifted there...wooo..heaven..the nike outlet is good..all price is 50%..design much more.beside the nike there is this shop selling some nice "branded" clothes like A&F,billabong,Fred Perry.I dun think it is auth stuff but price is cheap compare to our online MO.Material and quality quite gd. Then beside it will be a shop selling perfume and cosmetic which is super cheap.(All shops are at the side of Camelplant building entrance)

10th..went to shen zhen..consider lucky that we missed the No.8 signal as most shops are closed early.
Took the KCR and went to the first class cabin..no need squeeze and got quite alot of empty seats..cost ard 60+HKD per trip.Reach shen zhen at around 10amplus..Luo hu still at their sleepy state..alot tounting to ask u to get this and get that...irritating..whole building mostly fake branded stuff..so immediately took their MRT to Lao Jie(Dong Men)..once out MRT will bring u to a building selling alot electronic(mp4,webcam,bluetooth earpiece)..things are cheap here..bought a samsung bluetooth earpiece at RMB120. walk out the building towards dong men..and its a heaven..alots of small shops like bugis street type..things are super cheap and still can bargain further..shiok..but some shops meant for wholesale..so 1 pcs or 2 pcs they wont sell...went back to HK at ard 8pm..still got alot of shops and st did not explore..missed that place.
Went to temple st for its claypot rice but closed.Then found out the whole nathan rd is deserted and it is only 8pm+!! due to the No.8 signal

11-12th are all shopping.

Lai Chi kok-Industrial Center..wholesale clothes for ladies...can occupied my gf 5hrs at that building while i went to starbucks for coffee and paper then fall asleep then wake up for coffee again.But conclusion is Dong men(SZ) is much better..rate is better,more variety and less attitude seller.

Espirit - 50% of original price...1000hkd and above,further 20% , 500hkd and above,futher 10%.
All the items at diff factory outlet are almost the same. but i feel the one near Peninsular Hotel is bigger than the one at citygate. Bought quite some stuff here..hee

H&M - more like Pull & bear....but they got formal clothing like zara..not really exp..and not really cheap.Must see the item itself.....funny is i was there at sun evening....8.30pm only the shop announce closing liao.

Once i sort my pics..i will upload a few here.

Travel is always heng-suay kinda of gamble.
In fact, HK typhoon season is supposed to be from April to end August or thereabout.
Went there last National Day; only experienced occasional passing showers, not as bad as this year's trip.

wow zeroflame, 10th i oso went to shenzhen n oso same wif u miss the no.8 signal..wahah

to mi, once i touch down to shenzhen n went to the right hand side the tall shopping mall, my impression towards chi-nas went down to bottom zero..totally no mood to explore even further..juz wanted to find a place to eat den F off frm the place...HK is a muc safer place compare to there...mayb din get enuff infor frm this webbie n miss the MTR to dongmen which i believe wil b a muc nicer place to shop..

n ya..i oso stay in YMCA on the 10th..before that is a 5 star hotel in harbor plaza resort city in Tin Shui Wai..service in YMCA is real good...a bellboy named david serve us tru-out the trip..he is courteous n willing to help us intro food n places to go..5 thumb up for this little fair plump cute boy! whereas at harbour resort, service bad...attitude oso so-so..sigh
