Running: Quarry Bay Promenade

Running: Quarry Bay Promenade

 

MAP2

Where I ran: Quarry Bay Promenade

✓ 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…

Ham Tin Beach (Tai Long Wan) the EASY way

Ham Tin Beach (Tai Long Wan) the EASY way

IMG_4681

Everybody knows Tai Long Wan is Hong Kong’s best beach. But not everyone knows how to get there without the 1 hour hike which makes you want to give up on life in the 100% humidity 30+ degree Celsius Hong Kong summer.

get your bearings: Tai Long Wan is in Sai Kung, northeast of Hong Kong’s New Territories

Basically Tai Long Wan is comprised of 4 beaches connected to each other via short trails.

Wakeboarding in Hong Kong

Wakeboarding in Hong Kong

Yesterday was my official wake board baptism in Hong Kong:

YES I DID IT! On my last try!!! I was crying with happiness

I’ve never been a sporty or athletic person, and it’s only now - at age 25 - that I’m discovering I’ve wasted all those years being a little weak Asian girl when I was capable of doing greater things! Nature has equipped me with more than good genes to become decently athletic…

Macau 2011

The tiny territory (only 30km² – Hong Kong is 36 times bigger) became a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of…

Fitness Connection @ Sheraton Macao with Ella Magers

Fitness Connection @ Sheraton Macao with Ella Magers

IMG_1292

Last Saturday, this woman helped me to kill my body:

…in a good way, of course. It is now Wednesday and I’m still sore from what she made us do in her workshop at Sheraton Macao 4 days ago.

Last month, Sheraton Macao invited me to try out their new programme called “Fitness Connection @ Sheraton Macao”. At first I didn’t accept, but after a couple of weeks thinking about it, I thought, why…

What freedom of press?

What freedom of press?

Hong Kong is quickly descending into an abyss of censorship thanks to the magnetism of nearby black hole – north of the border crossing to mainland China.

Beijing 2012

Last week I was typing up a very light article on the Hong Kong Book Fair and God knows how much I’ve stamped down my own voice for the sake of the lifestyle magazine I work for, but even this paragraph was edited out:
