We spent the whole morning in the hotel before checking out to the airport. The two elder girls went swimming with papa while I went to get breakfast/lunch with Norrah. We had our brunch and chill in hotel! Finally, we took a taxi to the airport. Nikki napped right after the plane took off and so we had a rather peaceful flight back! 😝We sat right behind business class so it was rather spacious too and the seat beside me was empty!
We asked the girls if they enjoy the holiday. And yes they do. Noelle says she likes Disneyland and the hotel most🙄🙄. What about the cable car ride? ‘Oh yes!’ Then we asked if she miss ‘walking’; and her response was ‘NOOO…actually that made me tired!’ 🤣🤣
To round out the holiday, it was a truly family vacation. It wasn’t just a change of location 😝 as I did free myself from daily chores and hubby from work! The ‘job’ of parenting will never cease. Though there was ‘tough’ time during the trip, there were many more memorable experiences which we will surely talk about in the future.
Next few days will be super rush with chores, not to mention nothing much left in the fridge! Luckily I did cooked something and left it in the freezer to be defrost at least for Monday.
My holiday blues 😫 I think I missed not the holiday but Noelle and hubby being around – when they go to school and work!
In this trip, we truly see that Noelle has grown up so much – she is much more responsible, even helping us to pull the stroller when each of us push a luggage and carry her sisters. She did whine but usually gave way. She took care of the Canon camera that we entrust her with throughout the journey. She took out her pencils or colour pencils to draw/colour whenever she has leisure time; and kept everything nicely with minimal reminder. She pretend play with Nikki in the hotel room while we relax. Hopefully next trip Nikki will follow Noelle’s footstep. I will choose to sit in between them in the plane by then while hubby handles the ‘next’ Nikki aka terrible Norrah! 🤣😝
Holiday ended! So my next mission – ‘potty train’ and hopefully going diaperless for Nikki. She has showed her ability to read her body especially in these five days – sitting on the adult toilet bowl not just to poo but pee! I seriously hope this will continue as we resume our daily lives! (Not an easy mission, hopefully we could do so)
Where did we stay in Hong Kong?
We stayed at Royal plaza hotel located at Prince Edward road in Kowloon. This was recommended by hubby’s colleague and subsequently I did see many same recommendation by some mummies in fb group. It is linked to Moko shopping complex which has a train station (East Mong Kok station) – walking down from the shopping complex, there are fruit markets, the well known Kam Wah and linked bridges to many areas. All in all – sort of strategically located.
We had double queen sized beds and a coach by the side (which was Noelle and Nikki’s play area). There is a bath tub, so showering the kids come easy and we lighten our luggage by not having to bring along our inflatable bath tub.
We had a pleasant stay in the hotel!
