Chee cheong fun
Har gaoBeing the troopers that we were, we decided to walk through the park to reach the base tram to Victoria's peak. The park was big and we detoured through the aviary. The walkway allowed close proximity to the many birds that call the aviary home.
Strategically placed viewing decks
We reached the base station but the queue was super long so we decided to be adventurous and hike up Victoria's Peak. The route was well defined and it is probably one of the few places in HK where you feel true quiet and less "crowd". The air was fresh and there were many hillside condominiums dotting the way up.
Here we go!
Don't look back!

We reached the top in 1 hr and dragged our feet into the Peak Galleria, a shopping center (why are there so many shopping centers in HK?). We grabbed an egg tart (superb stuff!) from Tai Cheong bakery and lunched at Mak's noodle. The noodles are better than Yat Lok - I don't know how the noodles can be so fine yet so firm! The wantans are big and really yummy.

Victoria Peak write-up
We took the bus down (I am done walking at this stage), it was such a relief to just not move and take in the scenes as we move down to Central. We took a quick shower at the hotel then headed out to meet another friend at Wooloomooloo sky lounge. The view was stunning and the drinks were not too pricey. The staff was extremely friendly and it was a nice break to simply soak in the nightline of HK and enjoy good company.

Dinner was Japanese again as we didn't want another round of wanton noodles -- this time it's at Tiger Curry. Service was quick and friendly, the food was really delicious and filling. They offer you a build-your-curry option so you can customize it however you like it! The Katsu curry had kick and the eggy taste was perfect!
Gosh look at all that yums
After spice, we needed something nice, so we had dessert at Via Tokyo. The green tea and sesame seed ice-cream was the perfect finish to the night. It was a quiet walk back to the hotel and we watched TV before dozing off.
