From 1 place 2another (Part IV)

Langham Place 朗豪坊 is a business and commercial complex which opened in the fourth quarter of 2004 in Hong Kong, comprising a shopping mall, hotel and office tower. Located in the Mong Kok district of Kowloon, the complex occupies two entire blocks defined by Argyle Street, Portland Street, Shantung Street and Reclamation Street. Shanghai Street separates the hotel and office tower from the shopping mall.

We went there not really for shopping, but just to look around, chill and hang out. Then later we found out at the infomation counter, that tourists get discount cards for free. Applicable throughout the year, and up to 20% discounts at participating outlets! Apart from that, we got Free Gift from Aveda too~ no, you dont have to buy anything from them, its just tourists' priviledges. Aint that good? ?

Do you know ? The building is used as main background for the TVB drama series: Under the Canopy of Love.

Another must visit place - China Hong Kong City, located at Tsim Sha Tsui, is one of Hong Kong’s most prominent and largest commercial complexes. Labels such as Calvin Klein Underwear,Cashmere Fashion,Himalaya Cashmere, Le Gala Boutique,Vittorio Giovane,Top Trend, G 2000, Fancy Jewelry & Co are available here. Just right out side the entrance there's an Esprit Outlet too! *Wonderful! *

Apart from fashion, there are loads of restaurants here as well- chinese, western, asian, gourmet express & cafes. We came here because we need to get the return tickets back to Macau. Ferry services from China Ferry Terminal (adjacent to China Hong Kong City) offer convenient and comfortable travel to neighboring cities including Macau and other areas in China, such as Zhuhai, Shekou, Zhongshan, Shunde and Panyu, Shunde and Panyu.

I took at picture of this building because it reminded me so much of Chung King Express. This was there place where Takeshi followed Brigitte Lin into and I WAS THERE! haha well, right across the street, that is ...

Chung King Express is a 1994 Hong Kong film written and directed by Wong Kar-wai. The film consists of two stories told in sequence, each about a Hong Kong cop and his relationship with a woman. The first story stars Takeshi Kaneshiro and Brigitte Lin and the second stars Tony Leung, Faye Wong and Valerie Chow.

For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, here ... check out the short clip below for Chung King Express
