Summer Holidays

Hello . . I have been away for so long that I hardly feel like blogging regularly. I am happy to find new readers from China and it has really taken a long time for them to stumble onto my blog. Just a month ago, we were in Hong Kong for a short family holiday. It was rainy on the first day we arrived and we headed for Disneyland the next day. It was a fun way to spend time together even though they had outgrown their kiddie stage. It is time to rekindle the child in us again with me included. There are some thrilling, heart pumping and hair raising rides to try, need I say more . . . let's go. I still don't know if I can still go on those roller coaster ride. It has been thirty five years since I went on one, lol.

Gizzly Gulch

Err . . I being the photographer. I wouldn't know what pose I'll strike if I am in it. They were so spontaneous. I should have asked them to do a jump for the camera. 

Walking down Main Street

 After I got pass my initial disappointment over the Railroad Main Street Station because of the fake backdrop of the building, the rest of the buildings and interiors were gorgeous, built in Victorian architecture.

Here's the start of our adventure. Exploring the seven themed zone starting with . .

Adventure Land

Toy Story Land

Fantasy Land

We break for lunch at Fantasy Land's Royal Banquet Hall. We enjoyed the ride at Mystic Point. The Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars in Grizzly Gulch took us by surprise. We didn't know it was a roller coaster. The best part was that it sped backwards to its start off point. At the first half of the ride, my son asked me whether I was okay because I was still cool. However, when it dropped suddenly, I started screaming all the way back. It was so exciting they went back for seconds. As for me I need to recover from the adrenaline pumping ride. Ha-ha I survived. Moving on to yet another one which was in Tomorrow Land's Star Wars Takeover. Totally Wild, I tell you that I kept my eyes closed. I didn't want to scare the hell of my son with my screaming. It was so fast. 

After lunch, it was time for a cup of tea of another kind.

We went for the tamer rides like the 'Winnie The Pooh' adventure ride and 'It's The Small World' ride. And how about this one, Cinderella Carousel. Never too old for this.

Sleeping Beauty Castle was undergoing transformation and we didn't see any Disney princess, sob. It was rainy the later part of the day. There will not be any parade or fireworks. The wet ground reflected the lights from the buildings. It looks magical. By the time we left the park, it was close to seven. It would be nice to go on the rides again. We were tired but enjoyed ourselves in spite of the rain and the humidity.

The End
