Day 181- CyberPort and Light Show Cruise

This morning we hung out with Vicki and Graham while they packed up for their trip and we did some work! We were happy that their flight was delayed by a couple hours because then we went with them for lunch at CyberPort! We all got some salads and sandwiches at the grocery store and sat in a pretty courtyard to eat! 

While sitting there, we met one of their friends who works in a coworking space in CyberPort and she gave us a tour of it! Alexander was really interested in seeing it because he plans to join one when we get home!

When we got back home, it was time for Vicki, Graham, and Sulah to leave on their holiday and for us to shower and get ready for our evening!    For dinner, we found a restaurant inside the IFC which is right by the port where we met our boat for the light show!    I had some yummy ramen and Alexander had pork!

Then, we walked over to the port where we got on the Aqua Luna! It took back and forth in the river so we had different views of the skyline! Then we each had a glass of wine while we stopped to watch the nightly laser light show on all of the buildings! In the background, the boat played music to go with it!

Day 180- Hanging Out in Hong Kong and Valentine’s Dinner

Today we woke up to a fabulous view from Vicki and Graham’s apartment! Alexander really enjoyed watching the container ships go by!  

After sleeping in and having a leisurely morning, Vicki and Graham took us to City Hall for a Dim Sum lunch! We just had down and people would come by with carts of food and toss us whatever plates we asked for! We had a lot of food! The meal also came with warm water and jasmine tea.

Then, just down the street was the big Apple Store that Alexander had to see! So we stopped in the mall, check out the store and ran some errands. Then we came home and spent some time chatting on their rooftop patio with Tupac, their puppy dog!

Then at about 5PM, we got ready and headed out for our Valentine’s dinner in the city! We walked around for a while and enjoyed all of the lights on the buildings before our reservation. Alexander picked and booked a restaurant as a surprise for my Valentine’s gift! It was so sweet and he definitely chose the perfect place!

Then at the end of dinner when they brought out our heart-shaped dessert, the waiter also gave Alexander a rose to give me! It was such a sweet touch to a beautiful dinner!

After dinner, we did a little bit more walking around before heading back home!
