10 Oct – Saturday afternoon.
After the Taiwanese team left, Zachary from GameAxis joined me at the lobby. We had another two hours before our transport arrives to ferry us back to the airport.
We tried lazing at the seat but it was boring after a while. And we were told by the staff that sleeping is not allowed, so we decided to get a drink from the Starbucks nearby. We also toured around a shopping centre just to kill time.
Then, it was time to return for our transport. We met the rest of the Singapore team as we loaded our baggage into the car, assisted by the friendly and helpful driver. On the way back to the airport, we updated each other about our shopping experience and on the bargains.
As I listened to them, I took some shots of the sunset. It felt as though the sun was bidding us goodbye.
There are many places in Hong Kong that I didn’t manage to visit. I knew I would return to this place again one day.
Upon reaching the airport, we checked in our luggage and proceeded to enter the Departure Hall. As I was reminiscing the good memories of Hong Kong, I encountered an unpleasant experience. The customs officer took a long time to verify my details. It felt almost like 5 mins. While the other passengers at the other counters were quite brief, mine was considerably longer. I remembered that it took almost the same time when I arrived on Thursday. Perhaps there were too many details on my passport that needed verification. On one hand, I’m puzzled why the new Singapore biometric passport has a different passport number, while previous passports used our NRIC number instead.
Anyway, we spent a few minutes of shopping and eventually gathered for a final meal together. We pooled our remaining Hong Kong money to buy two party snacks at a cafe (oh dear i can’t remember its name). When the time came, we boarded the plane for our flight home.
