After at the Causeway Bay, we went to Avenue of Stars.  From Causeway Bay Station, alight at Tsim Sha Tsui and exit at J and sub J2.  Go all the way to the sign around 5 minutes walk.

The entrance of Avenue of Stars:

I need coffee to warm up my stomach so we decided to walk thru the right to find starbucks.  Avenue of Stars is in the Victoria’s Harbour.

The old clock Tower.  It was formerly known as Kowloon-Canton Railway Clock Tower.  It was one of the declared monument of Hong Kong since 1990.

We found Starbucks inside the mall near the clock tower and had a good warm inside the coffee shop.  It was almost 6PM when we part ways and I’m on my way to Wan Chai to meet a friend who celebrates her birthday.  I ran out of cash because if I will pay by card in the hostel, there will be a high charge.  I was glad that the receptionist suggested to let me pay by cash instead.  I told Ate Joan that I need to change my cash and she brought me to Central, in World Wide mall where you can see a lot of Filipino store.  It’s like the Lucky Plaza in Singapore, well, worst than it.  The good thing was that their exchange rate was higher than the outside money changer but lower than the rate in Singapore.  So, if you are travelling to Hong Kong, change your money in your country.

I smiled when I saw this fastfood chain here in Hong Kong:
