On July 17th, Mum and I set abroad QANTAS to Hong Kong for an 11 day adventure in Hong Kong (Mong Kok, Kowloon) and Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Mt Fuji and Tokyo).

After a hectic night of shopping, at about 11pm, dinner was served at McDonalds. I ordered the Chicken Fun-tastic burger which was a savoury bun of shitake mushroom risotto, with a battered chicken breast fillet, mayonnaise, iceberg lettuce and shredded purple cabbage. This was available as a value meal with either fries, fresh pineapple pieces or a corn cup.
7am the next morning, we headed back to the airport for a flight to Kansai/Osaka, Japan. This photo was taken on a random street in Mong Kok.
