  • We're at the famous Big Buddha here in lantau island

  • Hong kong my best friend Alyssa and husband been came to visit us here in Hong Kong

  • Don't use it, if it's broken just throw it away because it's something bad happens

  • then break that

  • My dad likes to wear those beans

  • so Tom wanted to buy him one from here

  • Just saw the giant Buddha, we saw the temple back there

  • And now we are heading to there's like this little shopping street full of little shops and snacks and we're gonna see what we can

  • Find there before heading to the cable car

  • One good thing I noticed about this area is they don't work you off like at most tourist places?

  • Especially in Canada like a theme park or something touristy

  • They would charge you a ton of money for everything

  • But the ice cream we had was about a dollar you had for like three four dollars

  • so yeah, everything's like priced really well and fairly Oh

  • Rough start and open on the rough start

  • He's highly considering start do it he's analyzing the situation

  • If you go straight or diagonal

  • And

  • there's even signs

  • Warning you not to do this. Very dangerous. Very dangerous.

  • He must critically analysed the exact path and timing in order to get through. Oh

  • Is he backing out?

  • There, is he backing out Oh

  • Karam on the grill

  • toms on the wine Alyssa's on the dancing

  • I've made two styles. My family likes it really crispy

  • And this was less so I don't know what you guys prefer today this morning something pretty exciting is happening

  • So too-faced is opening up here in Hong Kong finally

  • Finally finally. I'm so excited for that and they reached out to me and they wanted to come by and bring me a surprise

  • They said they couldn't just send it to me in the mail they need to be here

  • So I'm very curious what that's gonna be all about. Okay, what do you think? They're gonna

  • do

  • I can't figure out anything at all

  • Know it's going well. I think that they're

  • Going to bring something

  • large that won't fit in the mail Oh yeah true and

  • Maybe they want you to wear like a mascot?

  • No

  • Cuz I originally I thought they're going to bring someone to you and then to meet you but like I don't know

  • Anyone, that would come by like surprise

  • We are just making our way up the peak now

  • it is so interesting

  • It's so concentrated here, but then there's also so much green

  • so it's like a circle of green around and then all buildings in the center and then

  • The lake is like it's like a tootsie roll

  • Like the center the cheese on it

  • We always go back there how many times we've been there we always like going back there's a nice little restaurant there

  • We like to have brunch with Rosie sometimes, you can hike around there. The view is really really nice as you saw

  • It's definitely a must do when you come to Hongkong it that can be the number one tourist spot in hk

  • Now we are still in TST and there's like a promenade along the

  • Harbor here and it was newly renovated. It was closed for a while and just opened like two or three weeks ago

  • I want to say so I haven't even seen the newly renovated one

  • I'm here again for the first time just like the restaurant just now and that restaurant was really really good by the way we loved

  • everything

  • so

  • yeah, you're just a little sleepy too much food got another coffee and

  • We're very full. So we're gonna take a walk

  • Look at the lights by the harbour side, there is some statue. There's a Bruce Lee and

  • It's been really nice night walk. But there's a lot of people

  • We're currently at a ten thousand Buddha's monastery and we're walking up

  • It's just a lot of stairs a lot of Golden Buddha inside us all the way up the mountain

  • one other things you need to do when you come to Hong Kong is get foot massage and

  • My favorite place to do that here you can go anywhere

  • There's there's all kinds of different price range places

  • And one of my favorite though is 10 feet tall because they have really nice clean rooms

  • they have a good selection of English magazines and Chinese and

  • At their central location, you're going to order Froyo and smoothies those up, you can't here but they do have like some candy and

  • and different teas and stuff we're gonna have dinner after

  • we are going there

  • Chinese foot massages are really nice because your your foot is connected to so many areas in your body

  • we've been doing a ton of walking and it's just gonna make us feel like moving so

  • I'll get my stuff

  • Because you never liked English magazines are so expensive if yours are imported and they're always like late I always like
