#423 Postcard from Hong Kong Disneyland

This is the last postcard that I sent from Hong Kong to my address in Canada. On 4 September 2012, my family and I visited Hong Kong Disneyland. We spent the whole day having lots of fun! As it was a weekday, there were not many people and we did not have to wait at all for most of the rides and shows.

I wrote this postcard for myself and sent it from Town Hall in Disneyland Hong Kong.

This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 5 September 2012. We left Hong Kong for Toronto in the morning of 5 September 2012.

#422 Cover and Postcard from Hong Kong

On 4 September 2012, we left Hong Kong and Kowloon for Disneyland Hong Kong!! We stayed in Hollywood Hotel as it was cheaper compared to Disneyland Hotel. I decided to send a postcard and a cover from the hotel to my address in Canada.

This is the postcard.

This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 6 September 2012.

This is the cover from the hotel. The postmark date is also 6 September 2012 but I used two HKD 2.40 stamps – it just happened that I had one extra HKD 2.40 stamp.

#420 Postcard from Hong Kong

We arrived in Hong Kong on 2 September 2012 around 1:00 pm with Cathay Pacific. We took the airport express train to Kowloon and then took the free shuttle bus to hotel. At about 6:00 pm in the evening, we went to Victoria Peak using the tram. It’s very similar to the old tram in Penang Hill, Malaysia. We spent the next day at Ocean Park Hong Kong, and returned to hotel around 6:00 pm. That evening, Aiman was having a fever so he stayed at hotel with mom; but I decided to go and try the Star ferry cruise with Maryam! We arrived at Kowloon Pier at 7:45 pm but we missed the 8:00 pm ferry trip! I decided to wait and take the 9:00 pm trip and Maryam agreed. At 8:00 pm, we watched the light and sound show from Kowloon Public Pier. After the show, I bought some postcards while waiting for our 9:00 pm trip.

This postcard shows the Star Ferry Pier at Kowloon Jetty in Tsim Sha Tsui at night.

This is the back of the postcard. The postmark date is 5 September 2012. There were so many people coming out from the 8:00 pm trip, but for the 9:00 pm trip there were less than 10 people!!! So basically Maryam and me got the chance to move and change places as much as we like! The cruise was fantastic. We got complimentary drinks and cakes from a small counter on the upper deck. The benches on the deck are also similar to Penang ferry in Malaysia.

#419 Postcard from Hong Kong

If you read my first post this month, you will know that I was away for a long summer vacation in Malaysia with my family. Earlier this month, on our way back to Canada, we stopped in Hong Kong for transit from 2 September 2012 until 5 September 2012. While we were in Hong Kong, I managed to send some postcards to my address in Canada, and all of them have arrived last week. I shall upload each of them here.

The first postcard is a 3D image postcard of a seahorse. I bought this postcard while we were visiting Ocean Park Hong Kong on 3 September 2012.

The cost of sending a letter from Hong Kong to Canada is HKD 3. The postmark date is 5 September 2012. I sent home only one Ocean Park postcard since the price of this postcard is HKD 50!!

This is the souvenir sheet from Hong Kong that was issued to commemorate the Centenary of Xinhai Revolution in 2011. This was a joint issue between China Post, Hong Kong Post and Macau Post. Xinhai Revolution abolished the imperial dynastic rule in China in 2011 and transformed the country into a republic.

This is the souvenir sheet from Iceland, and it is also a joint issue between Iceland and Malta in 2011 – the northernmost island nation and southernmost island nation in Europe. The souvenir sheet depicts a picture of the fishing town Húsavík in Iceland. Fishing is one of the most important economic activity in both countries.

Thank you Igor for all these nice stuffs!
