went harbour city, mostly branded stuffs. ppl queing up to go in and grabbing bags out like free one. out of 10 people who go in, 8 walk out with a purchase for both LV and gucci boutiques, unlike in SG, mostly go in wayang and come out empty handed. Also, the ATMs are always filled with long ques, seems that everyone is printing money.

notice most atms run out of cash, amazing how these hong kong ppl spend.

Went to the ITAMAE SUSHI, tried alot of the different stuff, think the best is still the fatty salmon but the rest are all so-so even with the hoo haa que they have outside.

Xu Liu Shan selling all the mango stuff is great, spent quite a bit at their various outlets each time i pass by.

nike factory outlet at camelpaint can be missed, small and nothing. Ladies street, can go just for the sake of going but theres nothing much also, they treat the ang mos better when ur there can see for urself. Saw how a poor korean lady who kena scold upside down when she touched some earings and asked abt the price, in the end didnt buy. the "store keeper" scold her mouth itchy, ask liao dont buy.

Tons of empty stalls with just table and magazine showing branded bags, they will talk to u and bring u up a small stairway into a small room filled with fake branded goods.

spotted UMBRO factory outlet at entrepot centre too.

Really depends on U.
You can eat simply at roadside cafe, go upmarket a little and eat at Cafe De Coral or blow a few hundred bucks per meal eating abalone.
To me, the best bang for the buck is Golden Baihinuia at HKCC - upmarket, good view of the harbour, yet quiet with very good seafood with excellent service. Much better than the horridly crowded and noisy Yung Kee. About S$50-60/pax.

Is this a question or an exclaimation?
Well....haven't you heard of mainlanders bringing their stash of HKD$1000 notes tiedup with a rubber band..then stand at the cashier and start counting piece by piece to pay?
Believe it or not lar...of course when there are extreme riches there will be ppl...less well off.

Thumbs up Elements at Kowloon station


Elements at Kowloon MTR station


"Elements aims to become the 'third place' for Hong Kong people, meaning that the mall will be a place that Hongkongers visit the most frequently after their homes and offices," said MTR Corp chief retail development manager Betty Leong Sin-ling. MTR has put a lot of effort in anticipating its shoppers' needs. At the entrance of each of the mall's nine washrooms, there is a lobby with sitting area and magazine rack.


This is not all. The male washrooms will be stocked with colognes, aftershaves and electronic shavers while the female washrooms will have perfumes and make-up sets for use. Toilet attendants will make sure that all these personal items are kept hygienic.


MegaBox
MegaBox is unique as it is the largest shopping mall in Kowloon East, with the city's largest single-story book city and the biggest collection of home-improvement stores - all situated in its 1.1 million-square- foot shopping arcade.

1) the check-in starts 2 hours before your flight departure time
2) depends on you lah, usually half an hour before departure time is fine.
3) yes do have a full breakfast before boarding because..
4) the prices of the food menu on jetstar are ridiculous
5)3 hours 50 minutes
6) eh brudder up to you lah, got eateries in HK airport or you can check in to your hotel before eating.

HTH.
