Hongkong is famed for its shopping and dining.

Well, I was hoping to make a trip to Hongkong this coming year-end vacation, since my husband has a free ticket there. I was thinking that it would make a great family vacation destination since there are activities for all. There is Hongkong Disneyland and Ocean Park for the kids, and food for me and the husband. There are also friends to meet up with, and the winter is comparable mild (8C to 26C). I have also heard that December is one of the better months to do shopping in Hongkong due to the holiday season sales. And we have not been to HK since 1998!!

BUT the kids do not want to go!!

Why? Good question. They have their own reasons.

For the oldest, this home-body would rather stay home, sleep in late than go on vacation. Beyond my comprehension!!

As for my son, it's because he doesnt like chinese food. Dont ask me why. He feeds well when we eat at Chinese restaurant, but he is always against going to a chinese restaurant.

As for the youngest, she is all set to go, as it is on her list of things to do .. she wants to visit all the Disneylands in the world!!

So, with two "nays", I am not sure if the trip will materialise.

Sad, isnt it?

Thanks Doc, no need to send anywhere as we live all together under one roof!!

Go over with girlfriends or your hubby. Then you can set your own agenda to shop and eat to your heart's content. HK is not that far from you, so you could make a 4-5 days trip - easy!

But Charmaine, you know how it is, we hardly have much family time with the long and presuurising school days here. Time spent as a family is what we want, and when they dont want to go, it just puts a damper on the vacation.
