Beach Hike/Walk: Lantau Trail Section 11 Pui O (Beach) to Cheung Sha Beach
IMG_6204

Distance: 4.5 kilometres total but we just did 3.7 km as we skipped the road parts

Duration: 1.5 hours

Difficulty: 1/3 stars Easy Walk

1a

On the Saturday of our Mui Wo Staycation (post and link up soon): While the whole of Hong Kong was thrown into chaos, I was having a birthday extension weekend at Lantau. We chose the easiest bits of the Lantau Trail because it’s still too hot to do anything to strenuous.

S.W.E.A.T.

DON’T JOIN PURE YOGA
1a

How many times do I have to go to the f**ing studio only to be turned away because the class is full? THE CLASS IS ALWAYS FULL.

1a

Would YOU pay HK$1,000 (US$130 GBP80) a month – hey that is NOT cheap – to NOT go to class? To waste your time everyday trying to get a slot in class?!! To waste your time and money trying to risk getting a place in class only to be turned out into the streets even…

Fortunately, it looks like…

Nood Food Ongoing Review
image002

Short and sweet. Dish, verdict, done. For me, Nood is usually a hit or miss.

I tend to drop by Nood regularly because I do yoga are Pure and it’s easy… plus I don’t know where else to get healthy food on the go in Hong Kong sometimes.

Blue Dreams : 

Watery. Tastes like ice. Shite. So disappointing since the description is so promising.

The best place to park your junkboat in Hong Kong : Sai Kung’s Ninepin Island Group
© Maximilian DL

© Maximilian DL – From last Sunday’s junkboat trip

Summer’s not over yet, folks! And believe it or not, this was my first junk of the year. And one of the best I’ve had in Hong Kong! A huge factor was the environment – our boat was parked in the best waters I have ever seen here.

Review: Disney Haunted Halloween 2014

Review: Disney Haunted Halloween 2014

Disney Haunted Halloween_Sideshow Carnival Extraordinaire

Last week I got invited to a press preview of Disney’s HAUNTED HALLOWEEN 2014.

???????????????????

I wasn’t expecting very much given last year’s experience, after which I concluded that Disney’s Halloween celebrations are much too kiddie for me.

But it was actually better than I expected. Although I would still recommend the Hong Kong Disney Halloween for families rather than for…

Macau Tower Jump: Would you do it?

Macau Tower Jump: Would you do it?

Here’s a post to celebrate FEARLESS FRIDAYS!!

my fearful face

 

Once upon a time I promised someone in a letter that I would do the Macau Tower jump with him. I never thought that day would come, but it did.

Actually, I cheated. I went all the way up there and chickened out of the Bungy, so instead I did the Skyjump which meant I was just lowered down from the top.

Dutch Path: Short and easy “hike” or nature walk in Central/Admiralty

Dutch Path: Short and easy “hike” or nature walk in Central/Admiralty

IMG_5563

Distance: 1.8km (but you can carry on towards other paths/trails if you want)

I bet you haven’t heard of it. Well, at least I didn’t until last weekend when I decided I wanted to go for a walk but nothing too long. Nowadays Hong Kong is too hot for anything strenuous. Still I wanted to get out of the city even just for half an hour, without having to take public transportation.

So what did I do?…

Save Bowen Road - Sign this petition!

Save Bowen Road – Sign this petition!

I have yet to write an entry about my go-to jogging trail in Hong Kong – Bowen Road. But that’s because everyone already knows about it. Even in the summer, when you think it’s too hot to run, Bowen Road’s leafy surroundings halfway up the mountain on Mid-Levels gives a cooler respite from other options (seriously, jogging along the Central Harbourfront is a horrible experience – ferry exhaust +…
