On our last day in Hong Kong, I woke up early with Rachel to accompany her to catch the airport transfer train. We were flying back on different flights. She was to fly earlier in the morning via Tiger Airways while my flight with Cathay Pacific was scheduled at noon.

As Rachel woke up late, we did not have time to share breakfast together as she needs to rush off to the airport.

After seeing her off, I had the rest of the morning to myself. I wandered around the Sheung Wan (上环) area, near our hotel, Mingle on the Wing. By chance, I came across a wet market and wandered in to take some photos of heartland Hong Kong activities.

Hungry by now, I chose a nearby cha chaan teng (茶餐厅) opposite the market for a quick breakfast alone.

After breakfast, I wandered around more till I got to the Hong Kong-Macau ferry area before heading back to the hotel to collect my luggage and head off to the airport.

I chose to take the airport transfer bus instead of the MTR train as it was cheaper in cost, although it will take a little longer. It was beginning to rain heavily when I set off to the bus stop. Nonetheless, the bus ride was comfortable and quick.

At the airport, I ate lunch at Popeye’s before shopping around for some traditional Hong Kong snacks to bring back for my colleagues and family.

As it was still relatively early when I arrived at the airport, I ordered a set meal from Popeye's to eat

My flight back was delayed by around two hours due to the stormy weather. I managed to finish watching the award-winning Hong Kong movie, Echoes of the Rainbow (岁月神偷) during the delay, making the wait less painful.

It was a very heartwarming movie. You should catch it if you can:
