Aiyah. Pay a little to the professional photographers there and they take the photo for you. You are there for a shopping trip. Don't tell me you want to lug a tripod all day long, all over the HK while SHOPPING just for 1 night shoot.

And because the photographers are there to earn a living, no one makes noise when he/she clears the crowd for a shot. Had one taken at the Peak. Even though it was crowded like anything, you wouldn't have been able to tell. There was only me, my wife and the lights of TST in the background in the photo.

Btw, dinner @ the peak seems interesting. But ex anot -.-
Have all kinds of outlet to suit all budgets - McD, Starbucks (or was it Coffee Bean), Delifrance to the western restaurant I mentioned.

I ate at Zen (because I am a "tiong kok kia" who cannot do without chinese food). Fair price ~$150 for 2 pax. (about the same as humble house at Esplanade). Very good food.

Although the dinner was very good and relaxing, I was disappointed with the service level for that kind of price (did not get the window seat I reserved, mix up my order, matre'd did not bid farewell or open the door for me even though he was next to it and my hands were full with my wife's shopping) , so not recommending it to you.

Hehe, photography is an interest to me It doesnt matter if the shot doesnt turn out nice(but of course, if it's nice, that's a plus), but I wan ppl to see the world thru my eyes Furthermore, if the shots turn out nice, it's a satisfaction of some sort. Hehe. But I really lazy to lug tripod around ah. Thk I will die of exhaustion from the weight

Got those mini tripods with those extendable legs.. But quite unstable, when extended. That aside, it's also pretty heavy. Haha. And also, it's actually pink in color -.-" Urm, I wanted a white one, then the salesperson duno y gave me a pink one. Argh. Looks so girly and kiddish that I also dun dare to use. Haha. I thk I'd try the ledge =P

Hi,

Sori, more Questions

1) Esprit warehouse @ P217-220, Basement 2, Palace Mall, Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. What is the opening hrs? Planning to go from 5pm - 7pm, scare closed.

2) Repulse Bay. Found the following directions to get there :
Take bus no. 6, 6A, 6X, 66, 260 from Central (Exchange Square) Bus Terminus and alight at Repulse Bay. This Bus terminal is @ Central MTR right?

Is there another way to get to Repulse Bay?

If take cab from Central , roughly cost how much? Thking of going to see the twin ten-meter-high statues of Tin Hau, the Queen of Heaven, and Avalokitesvara, the Goddess of Mercy.

Hmm, i think u just take those bus there, if there's no jam or whatsoever, then u should reach repluse bay in around 15 to 20mins. 260 will be slightly faster as it dosent stop at wan chai, but cost slight more. Btw, in Hong Kong, most of the people do not board buses at terminus unless it is absolutely necessary to do so or it is nearer. But anyway yes, it operates from Exchange Square ("near" Central) MTR. Or if u see a stop with this services, just look at the destination display and u might want to board from there. Cab roughly cost $40~60

Citygate shopping mall is at Tung Chung, the end of the Tung Chung MTR line. It is somewhere near to the airport and not in the city area.
