After breakfast I headed back to the Ladies market to score some more deals before leaving on Sunday. I finished my list of to buys...yay! Davis only had to work a 1/2 day, and since his work was at the airport which is on Lantau Island, I met him over at his work and we went to explore the Island.
We decided to ride a cable car to see the "Big Buddha". The Big Buddha was definitely a must see for me. It's called the Big Buddha! The name makes it a must see.
Ngong Ping 360 is a dynamic new tourism experience, which combines a stunning 5.7 km cable car journey with an impressive cultural themed village and easy access to the Tian Tan Buddha Statue, the world’s largest, seated, outdoor, bronze Buddha statue.
On Ngong Ping Plateau, where the Tian Tan Buddha (or "Giant Buddha"), an 85-foot-high bronze Buddha statue, various monastery buildings and a vegetarian restaurant can be found. Walkers can ascend from Tung Chung to the monastery in two hours. Visitors can also take a 25 minutes ride on Ngong Ping Cable Car from Tung Chung to Ngong Ping Plateau.
After walking up a TON of stairs and riding the cable car back down, we headed back to Hong Kong Island. Our next stop was Modern Toilet, a restaurant. Yes, it sounds gross, but funny thing about Hong Kong is when they say Toilet, they mean bathroom. So this restaurant bathroom themed restaurant and it was AWESOME. The seats are toilets and the food comes served in toilets, tubs, urinals, etc. http:
After eating we went to a really cool home store called homeless.
my view at lunch!
Rats are apparently a problem in some parts of Hong Kong. In this picture you will notice an extra large one in a red shirt.

Our bath tub banana split. The bottom layer is chocolate flavored blended ice. It was actually a lot better than it sounds.
