Turning 26: Birthday Week in Hongkong

11:15 PM Jess Lauchengco 0 Comments

Celebrated my 26th birthday in Hong Kong. It was quite simple but more meaningful to me. My end goal here was just to make a wish at the Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees, but all other things are random (and also a blessing). Had 2 airbnb bookings, because it was CNY, everything else is fully booked. The first one, we stayed on Jordan Road and then the 2nd one was located at Mongkok. I will have a separate review about our airbnb stay in HK.

Endless Walking at IFC Mall
Lam Tsuen Wishing Trees
I've always wanted to do this, I always see this in Taiwanese Series (hehehehe). Since it was CNY, LTWT is an attraction to tourist and even locals. So how do you make a wish? You buy the mandarin orange and wishing paper, you check for your wish /write it. Tie the orange using the red ribbon And then you throw everything into the wishing tree. You should throw it until it hangs on a branch/leaves.
