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 – 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.

The water was pollution-free, there was no more than 3 boats around us…

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 +…

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

 

MAP2

Where I ran: Quarry Bay Promenade

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

✓ More space

✓ Relaxed vibe

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