28th in Hongkong: My Birthday Weekend Getaway

Hello everyone! It’s great to finally get back on writing after three months. We’re already halfway through the year, and I can’t believe I am already 28 years old! Life has been pretty rough these last six months, and I am failing a lot. But God is still good. I’m still alive and breathing, so that should count.

A quick update: I have recently started a reselling business for essential oils called Oh Well Organics and I’m the current managing partner for Oh Well Cagayan de Oro. We also have an Instagram account @ohwell.cdo. Please follow us to learn more about our products!

Okay, now on to the main part of this post. Another travel entry and this time I went to Hongkong! Here are some of the places we went to during our 3 – day itinerary on a P20,000 budget (including airfare!):

1. Hollywood Road

Hollywood Road is a street in Central and Sheung Wan, on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. I saw a lot of murals and street art which I really loved. We also visited Man Mo Temple and Hollywood Road Park along the way, too.

2. So Ho

Just south of Hollywood Road, So Ho is home to a lot of arts and crafts, antique shops, souvenir stores.

3. Mong Kok Night Market

Hongkong at night is a sight to behold especially when you’re in Mong Kok. The Ladies Market has EVERYTHING from bags to shoes to dresses to undies!

4. Macau

What is a Hongkong escapade without going to Macau? On my birthday last 15th, we booked a 1 day tour from Klook to Macau.

4. Mame & Shiba Dog Cafe

We had a pretty hard time finding this dog cafe because it was situated on the 3rd floor of a building in Foo Ming Street, Causeway Bay. But all our stress melted away when we got to cuddle them huskies!

5. Yick Fat building in Quarry Bay

The buildings were glorious in their age as decay and rust shown evidently on them. If you want an instagrammable photoshoot location, this is the place to go to.

Hongkong is a place I’d like to go back to. I love how easy it is to navigate through because everything has an English translation. The food was also delightful and the streets were clean. We even got caught in the recent Extradition Bill protest but we were alright in the end. How about you? Would you like to visit Hongkong?

Xoxo,

Iva
