I want to save money after yesterday I spend too much for night dinner.

The trip riding a cable car is taking 25 minutes and there is a good spot to take a photograph. The good spot is you can see the Hong Kong Airport and also Big Buddha from far view.

Then I go to the Giant Buddha using a stairs, when I arrive at the top I go to the building inside and there is a lot of name that’s already deceased, one of the most striking is the artist Anita Mui. sorry no photo I can showed, because it’s not allowed.

After taking a walk, I am back using a cable car again. The wind is so strong in T5 and T4 and I feel my cabin is shaking, so scary :0 :0

Because it’s still 2’o clock, I decided to go to Avenue of the star again, because yesterday is already too tired.
