Amazing Hong Kong

Over the weekend we took a family vacation to the amazing island city of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is just a two hour flight from Manila. It is hard to describe this incredible city without the use of superlatives. We stayed at the YMCA Salisbury hotel and we were blessed with a free room upgrade. Our room was huge, Danny enjoys the view from our Harbour Suite:
We also spent the day at Ocean Park, a great family destination with theme park rides, dolphin shows, and other great attractions.
There was a three story coral reef aquarium with amazing sea life. This guy looks familiar:
My favorite part of Ocean Park was the panda exhibit. They had red pandas and two giant pandas.
The trip paid for itself in that when we returned we all received a free one year visa. I mentioned earlier in this blog, we usually have to renew our visas every two months (and this is not cheap). When we returned to the Philippines the Lord gave us incredible favor and we were all blessed with what they call the Balikbayan Visa, which allows to stay for up to one year, with no renewal fees. Praise the Lord! It is hard to express how much a blessing this is.
