Hong Kong : 2 Bedrooms Apartment, 1 min to Prince Edward MRT

**Travel on 19 July 2013 - 22 July 2013

Due to high request from friends who's traveling to Hong Kong very soon and searching for affordable accommodation...

Below is my highly recommended apartment to stay in Hong Kong if you are traveling 3 to 4 pax :")

In front of our apartment.

Accommodation in HK is usually very expensive and the bedroom space is really small..
If you pay slightly extra more money for 4 or 5 stars hotel, only then you can enjoy the spacious and the facilities there.
But to me, i'm a very stingy if you're to advise me to pay extra money to stay a nicer hotel; it will always be a No-No to me.. Haha

Busan : Buying Spectacles is extremly cheap & fast !

When someone asked me what's the MUST BUY while they're in Korea...
My first reply is speck ALWAYS  Spectacles..

Various Specks!
Most people's mindset to come to korea normally goes for facial products or even fashionable clothings.
But to me, buying specks is always my first choice.

a) It is cheap ! The frames i usually buy is KWR 10,000 @ RM 30
b) The frame is usually very light comparing to those specks i bought in malaysia
c) I could get my specks within 15-20 minutes after you did your payment ! No kidding !

For example, for this Busan trip,  me & my buddy bought 4 pairs of specks just for ourself and we got our 4 specks within 1 hour after we choose our frames & pay on the spot !Amazingly fast !

At Gukje Market
Was walking around Gukje Market when we saw this spectacles shop which has more choices to choose.
