.........today i am going back home these 10 days i enjoyed every movement of my stay in HK yes there are few things i could do n some places i could go partly due to rain and partly because of both my replaced knees , still i am happy with whatever i can do at my age ........as i was not going any where i had two cups of tea sitting in bed only then got ready and did my packing. there wasnot much just one bag and one backpack and went to the lobby to pay the bill and checkout. officially the time was 12noon but they agreed that i could retain the room 3.30pm as my bus was leaving at 3.55pm. but i came down at 3pm. only waiting in the room was more difficult than in the lobby now i just wanted to reach the airport and back home to my son and his daughter.....now next where to n when......hope i will be fit to see more places , people, culture and only god what else......

When i got up in the morning i could see thick dark clouds on the horizen i had to go out today come what may it was my last day in the city ,as the luck would have it after some time they started thinning i was happy that at last i can go out. I planed that frist i will go to see the Tin Hau Temple it is in Kowloon onTemple Street . When i went there i was told that it was some 100 odd years old and was of God Mother . There i met one lady who could speak little english she told that like indians chinese also has many gods , god for everything firegod,raingod,windgod god for food and so on just like us . I think it ok there is nothing wrong in having so many gods i feel it is like a child when he is hungry he goes to his mother for food same way when we have no food , no health , no shelter or fear of unknown we too run towards our elders or towards our gods. it was good talking to that lady ,from there i went to the market i kept walking on the Nathan road seeing shops on the both sides of the road i reached ladies Market it was a long long walk by this time it was again raining so i droped my plan of going and seeing the market once again i was there before also here the shops on the open on the street you get all types of goods there but fake on top of that you should be expert in bargainning then only should enter that lane. as As it was still raining i deceided that i shouldnot go to Stanlay and deceided to see more malls there itself , in HK one mall is bigger n better than the other . I love to go to the malls even in Mumbai i go to the malls and can spend hours and hours without getting bored .Then after doing some shopping for my granddaughter and self i took the bus for Causway Bay thats where i was staying, there too it was still drizzlling bought few more things on my way to the hotel it was 8.30pm. when i entered my dead tired had long hot water bath after bath was little better made tea and entered my bed to enjoy tean tv ..about packing .... i will see in the morning only.....tomorrow will be my last blogg from Hong Kong................

Today after 10am. I was out on the Sha Tin it is in the New Territories which is very far from here. I took bus no. 170 it takes you very to the destiation it is walkig distance from the bus stop but i took another bus to the HK Heritage Museum i had gone there to see Faberge legacy of Imperial Russia. The things they had exhibited were too good you donot see these type of handycraft every day . From there i had to walk back because i couldnot find the bus stop for my return . Anyway it was not bad experience as i had to cross Hilton Plaza, Chanway Shoppig Center to reach New Town Plaza from where i had to catch my bus only bad thing was it was rainning and i had no umbrella but still it was not too bad because once i reached Hilton then they were all inter connected i didnot have to step out on the road and bus stand was also covered . Sha Tin is hilly beautiful place i would love lto live there On reaching my onreaching Causeway Bay i bought one umbrella, tomorrow is my last day in HK and donot want to sit in the hotel because of having no umbrella with me.......so see you.
