outlet shopping in hong kong

so we had to make the trek by sea back to hong kong in order to catch our flight back to manila today. but before we got on the plane, we of course had to do some shopping! time was limited, so we didn't do much. we got to go to this non-descript building in some out-of-the-way location, which has floors and floors of outlet shops.
there was marni...
and joyce...
and lane crawford...
as well as club monaco, diesel, juicy couture, maxmara, and a whole lotta home and furniture stores. all we bought was a gold charm bracelet by erickson beamon for anna sui at the joyce warehouse because the price was right. everything was still so expensive! even at half off!! mas lalo na sa prada outlet a few blocks away, which looked like a regular prada store. even the prices looked pretty regular to us. we had to ask our friend who brought us there, psst are you sure this is an outlet store?? needless to say, we bought nothing :-(
and when it was time to go, well, how practical is this in-town check-in, located at the IFC building? first, you buy your ticket for the airport express train (tip: if you're more than one person, buy your ticket at the counter instead of through the machine—that way, you get a discount)...
then proceed to check in your luggage and get your boarding pass. now you're free to roam hong kong till it's time to go to the airport! (get there one hour before your flight is just enough time. but take note that the train trip takes 25-30 minutes.)
then when you get to the airport, you can toss your ticket into this box for recycling! how clever!

Aww really. How disappointing. I've always wanted to check that place out but it's so far that I always end up not going. :/
