A BIG Buddha and Hello Kitty!

On our last day in HK, we decided to take a break from all the shopping and do/see something tourist-y like the famous Big Buddha on Lantau Island. A friend warned us that there were a LOT of steps we had to climb to get to the top... She was right.

We finally made it! It was really cool to be all the way up there and see the Buddha. It's amazing how it's so large and all the way on a huge mountain! We had to take a cable car up the mountain (like 25 mins) and then climb a bunch of steps... it's REALLY high up there!

There were also some other things to do on Lantau Island, but not much. I sure had a lot of fun on this thing, though!

After a few hours at Lantau Island, we took the subway to Kowloon to go to this mall called "Langham Place." A friend told us that it had crazy Hello Kitty decorations for Christmas so I really wanted to check it out. It was also Sanrio's 50th anniversary! I'm obsessed with Hello Kitty!

They had the cutest decorations! The mall was filled with huge Hello Kitty plushes and Hello Kitty everything! I must have over 50 photos here!

After we (or my boyfriend, rather) had enough of Hello Kitty, we went up to this area called "Mongkok" so do some night market shopping and tried some street food!

We tried about 3-4 different foods from different carts. All were pretty good.

For dinner, we found a beef noodle soup place... that was out of beef noodle soup. But they have wonton soup! :) 'Twas my last meal in HK until next time!
