Macau Tower Jump: Would you do it?

Here’s a post to celebrate FEARLESS FRIDAYS!!

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 +…

Real Stories: Brits Moving to Hong Kong

Real Stories: Brits Moving to Hong Kong

James Collins, 33, Engineering Geologist from London

Most of the expats that I have met in Hong Kong have a ‘work hard – play hard’ attitude. Although after a couple of years here, the ‘play hard’ part of that ethos seems to fade a little, and activities like hiking, water sports, and more outdoor activities tend to get a little more priority. Having said that, there are the guys who have been…

Running: Quarry Bay Promenade

Running: Quarry Bay Promenade

 

MAP2

Where I ran: Quarry Bay Promenade

Length: 1.8km – if you go back and forth 3.6km

Why I like it: 

✓ Fresher air than at my usual haunt, on the Central Piers to Admiralry/Wan Chai from Discovery Bay Pier.

✓ A Pet garden with cute dogs running around!

✓ More space

✓ Relaxed vibe

How to get there: Walk from either the Quarry Bay, Tai Koo, or Sai Wan Ho MTR Station. Just head…

Taste Test: Claypot Rice Wing Hap Shing

Taste Test: Claypot Rice Wing Hap Shing

This dish is a winter must-eat in Hong Kong, and online the photos looked like this:

So obviously I couldn’t wait to try it! It was just a few steps away from my office. When I got there, this is what I actually got:

Wing Hap Shing miced beef and claypot egg rice

Needless to say, it was a bitterly disappointing experience. Dry beef that tasted like dust and even drier rice… Never again. Hope I…

FREE Brazilian/Bikini Waxing in Hong Kong

FREE Brazilian/Bikini Waxing in Hong Kong

*This post is for the ladies

Once upon a time I went to Japan and decided to visit one of Kyoto’s public bath houses. Everyone has this idea that Japanese girls are the hottest in Asia but maybe the hot ones don’t do public baths? It’s like one of those EXPECTATION vs. REALITY split-screens where on one hand you have sexy naked women everywhere and on the other an illustration of how women’s…

I came here last Sunday for the first time in my life, which is shocking since I’ve wanted to try this place since I arrived in 2011. 2014…
