Widya and I woke up extra early in the morning to do last minute shopping at a nearby mall called, Lo Wu Shopping Plaza, before checking out from the hotel. Nothing in China is authentic. There were many imitation branded goods on sale such as Michael Kors, Bottega Venetta, Tory Burch and Long Champ. The salesperson explained the reason behind the expensive goods but I refused to believe because obviously, it wasn't real. However, it didn't stop me from purchasing a fake long champ bag because I needed it for shopping purposes and that was after I successfully managed to bargain for a lower price.
Both of us did not spend much at the shopping plaza because we felt that the items were overpriced. After checking out from the hotel, we walked further down the streets and into an old building for a massage since our lethargic feet deserved a rest.
It was a long bus ride to the airport and I wanted to keep myself awake and occupied. I was busy taking selfies and I saw a man sleeping peacefully behind me. I had to switch angles to avoid him from appearing in my photos.
Once we reached the airport, we have to wait for another bus to Discovery Bay.
I must say that Discovery Bay was mad beautiful!!! As it was located up the hill, the weather seems to be cold every time. Even in the afternoon, it was windy. Discovery Bay is a restricted area where only the residents are allowed to enter. The land is filled with plenty of apartments and tall condominiums. They only have one mall which is called, Discovery Bay Plaza. Their form of transport is the golf buggy and mini buses, which is enough to carry the people from one end to the other. Outside vehicles are not allowed in the restricted area as it will cause noise pollution. Most of the residents are Filipinos married to Caucasian men. They love to walk their dogs both in the day and night. It was definitely an eye-opening experience, seeing Hong Kong in a different light. The people there were very friendly and approachable. I would definitely live there if I had the chance to. Oh! They have beaches and ferries too!
Most of them are housewives. In the day, they would play tennis with the other mums after they sent their kids to school. After tennis, they would hang around the plaza and eat at restaurants. After which, they will go grocery shopping and fetch their kids from school. At night, they cook for their husbands when they are home. I would describe them as tai-tais. In Discovery Bay, we stayed over at Widya's acquaintance house for our remaining stay in Hong Kong.
We dropped our belongings at home and went for dinner at Hemingway's By The Bay.
I am in love with this part of Hong Kong. Amazing!
