EARLY LUNCH AND CABLE CAR RIDE TO NGONG PING VILLAGE, HONG KONG.

Hong Kong, Day 2 - Lunch & Cable Car Ride.

By now the rain has cleared and we were ready to visit Ngong Ping Village. The weather was gloomy with very light drizzle on and off.
Waiting at the MTR (mass transit railway) station.

Some of us were hungry and we decided to get an early lunch at Food Republic, an international food court.

Queuing up at food counters. The place was very packed. We managed to get a place for 10 of us.

Some kind of pan fried dumplings.

Steamed dumplings.

Mixed rice pot.

Noodles.

Braised tofu and egg, chicken rice.

A bowl of wanton in soup.

Tummies filled, we are ready for adventure.

Waiting for Pete to get the tickets.

Queuing up for the cable car ride to Ngong Ping Village.

All 10 of us in a cable car.

Took these photos from inside the cable car.

There was a slight drizzle.

This was my 2nd cable car ride.

The first was in Singapore many years ago.

At that time I was so afraid of heights, kept my eyes closed most of the time.

Here in Hong Kong, I had another breakthrough. I was able to enjoy the cable car ride! And I get to enjoy all these beautiful views!
Linking to Skywatch Friday.

From the rocky peaks I see them, from the heights I view them.

I see a people who live apart and

do not consider themselves one of the nations.

  2. I like the cable car ride to Ngong Ping because it is a long ride and I enjoyed it. Glad to see that you enjoyed the cable car ride too. Food Republic, isn't that the food court brand of Singapore? We have Food Republic food court in KL too.

    1. Hi Mun, was I glad I no longer fear the cable car ride or else it will be a long, long dreadful one for me. I have not been to the Food Republic food court in KL, will look out for it when I am next in KL.

  6. I used to love cable cars rides and got a thrill out of them. Then all of a sudden I started to freeze when going on a cable car at Niagara Falls. I had my young nephew with me and had to pretend for his sake that I was really enjoying it. I've never been on another cable car though would still try as long it wasn't over water ;-) Glad you got over your fears. x

    1. Hi Joyful, looks like it is the reverse for me. I was so afraid before but lost the fear this time. Both times were over the waters. I wouldn't know about any future cable car ride.
