musicguru and mobby80,
maybe we can meet up this weekend to talk? i already have some stuff on hand that we can use as basis for dicscussion.....do drop me pm with your contact numbers if u are interested?
well for my (pathetic) 48hrs stopover in HK last last weekend, after meeting the entire extended family for meals, i had only one sunday morning to shop. 3hours actually. i spent it at TST sogo and esprit outlet.
i would suggest fa yuen street..those shops in the buildings. some of them carry factory rejects/excess. i once had a cut-tag quiksilver jacket for 180hkd, lovers' house tee for 120hkd. can go to grand century (mongkok KCR) from here too.
i used to frequent New Town Plaza in Shatin...but since they renovated they turned high-class...not for the budget. but still there's seiyu at NTP PhaseIII and it's quite different from what the bugis one was.
As promise to qqspot bro, here a short review on the apartment i stayed during 15th - 20th July.
If you are travelling alone to HK on a budget, dun wish to stay in a hostel or find hotel to be too expensive, this is a place tt you might wanna consider. It is actually located btwn causeway bay stn and wanchai stn. the apartment is abt 5-7 mins walk to the nearest MTR stn (causeway bay).it is not exactly near to the MTR stn, so maybe aft a long day of shopping and walking, u still needa walk a distance before u can have ur rest.
Room wise, 1st impression is rather small though but is just nice for 1 person to stay. Cleanliness of the room is still acceptable lah. No housekeeping everyday. Has the basics what a hotel room have : single sized bed, TV, fridge, wardrobe, bathroom, even wifi (but i keep encounter frequent DC!), no safe deposit box though. Only thing i wanna complain is the sink, i am so not used to brushing teeth without a mirror in-front of me.There are 7-11, watsons, 24hrs cha chan ting downstairs. No worries if u are hungry in the middle of the nite.
For people who wanna try the HongKonger lifestyle, this is a place to consider because a hotel cant give u this experience.
