Raft3r is flying to Hong Kong next month.

I have been there several times. But this particular trip will be a pretty exciting.

This will be the first time I will be traveling overseas with my nieces.

Ages 5 and 3 spell F-U-N! Plus, Raft3r love those girls to death. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for them. My nieces are so adorable. Their casting agent would attest to that.

Visits to Macau and Hong Kong Disneyland are in order. The kids are also looking forward to meeting Mickey Mouse and the gang.

This got Raft3r thinking. Why are children so fascinated with a rodent? For crying out loud, it is a disease carrying creature.

don't hate!! "it all started with a mouse..." di ba? i still LOVE disneyland! i would go there over and over again if i can afford to take that much vacations hehehe

Went to Hong Kong a couple of years ago. It was okay, except for the fact that we had several bad experiences with the locals there. Some were really rude.

Hong Kong Disneyland is fun though. They have a nice hotel, avant-garde inspired in design, and the buffet is bloody awesome.

Checkout the daily fireworks at Disneyland, it starts 8pm ata. It's really great.

Go to Ocean Park, man. So many better attractions and photo ops, and much shorter lines. Plus, a roller coaster with three loops!

How exciting!!
Am sure you'd forget that you're 32 when you step into the happiest place on earth. (well, at least one of them).
Although it's really not about the place but the good (young) company you'll be with.

Kids have the ability to disarm you by their charm.

I'm sure your trip would be a total riot. Kids nowadays are smarter that sometimes adults have the difficulty of keeping up. Mag-ipon ka na ng energy, Raft3r. hehe

Enjoy! :p

Raft3r said...

pete, Sama na! Dali!
