Monday, April 6, 2009

Today was going to be a pretty full day. We got up early and got on the star ferry to go to the other side of the island. It was drizzling outside and we were worried that it would spoil our day at the theme park. We had to take a bus to Ocean Park, and by the time we got there the rain had mostly stopped. Liam and Aunty Robynne bought these huge ponchos as they had forgotten to bring them to China.
We saw the pandas first before we got started on the rides. I was really excited to see the pandas as even though I have been to China a lot of times before, I had never seen live pandas. I was slightly disappointed because all the pandas were so lethargic, but it was still good to see them for the first time.
We took the cable car over to the side with all the rides.
we first went on a roller coast but liam was allergic to it (sorry he wasnt tall enough) so he went on the ferris wheel. We went on the roller coasters a few times and then the hong kong equivalent to the giant drop, before we m ove to another site . Liam was able to get on 1 roller coaster that both pleased and scared the daylights out of him He muttered "shit" at the end. We went from one ride to the next and finished about 2.30pm for a Maccas lunch and a long awaited rest . We had wanted to see the sea show, but the arena had reached the maximum capacity before we had gotten there. We sat up and had lunch near it, and we could hear all the cheers from there but we couldn't see a thing. Craig left us then to go on a date with a girl caled Katewho went to school with him and was coincidentally in Hong Kong at the same time that we were. We went back down to the other side and took a big hot air balloon ride that was on a large cable, so we didn't actually move anywhere. We then saw the worst magic show in history; the tricks were so easy that I could've done it myself. One time, these little kids ran on to the stage and pulled on the metal bars and ruined the "secret" of the trick. Our feet were very heavy by this point so we made a move to go back home. We took the bus and the ferry again and had Subway in our rooms. We had to go to bed early because we have an early flight. I don't think that Craig got home until 12:30 so he would've only had 3 nd a half hours sleep.

Hi from Bunyip
Hi all. Sounds like you're all having fun. Shame about the pandas - 1st time to see them, you really want to see then swinging from the ceiling (or using sky hooks if they are outside!)Look forward to reading more. Hey, Amy, do you ever go back and look at what you have done on the blog? Have a look at the photo of you and Elyse at the Melbourne airport sometime. Love A Kate(Craig - it's a bit of a worry that, at your age, you have to go half way around the world to get a date)
