Guangzhou Xiangjian Safari Park @ Chimelong Resort, Southern China

by roniel

Pretty cool to check out the zoos or see animals from time to time, we dont see much here in Hong Kong. We came here to watch the circus which is at night so quite cool … but need to make sure that the weather is good coz you wont really see much if it was raining…

Lamma Island: A Blue Sky

by roniel

A special sunny day on Lamma Island. No need to tell but this is obviously not taken in this month as its getting pretty cold in Hong Kong now – the temperature up to this day is 17 degrees which is quite good. it is not easy to get blue skies in Hong Kong these days due to the pollution by factories located in Dongguan, China – so when there is such a great day like this – you would not want to waste it. One of the mot popular routines in Lamma Island is walking from one end to the other end of the island – so people have a choice to take the ferry and get off ‘Sok Kwu Wan’ or ‘Yung Shu Wan’. Normally people get off Sok Kwu Wan coz there are more things to see such as nice boutique shops selling interesting stuff and souvenirs – and apart from shops, you will find very nice restaurants in Sok Kwu Wan too.

It is highly recommended place to place to visit for one day getaway!

Macau: The House of Dancing Water

by roniel

A cool Christmas present I’ve received for 2012 – A super extravaganza show I’ve seen so far @ the City of Dreams in Macau! I must give it a thumbs up! The show was really nice and I couldn’t resist taking out my camera from my bag and take some good shots of it for memory! Well, the tickets were not cheap (HKD 880, around AUD 110) but it was really worth watching – the best thing was that the company paid for me and wife’s tickets:) which made the whole experience even more memorable! hurray!

Baolinsi @ Shunde China 寶林寺

by roniel

Just came back from this very nice place in China, called Shunde. It is located in the Guangdong area of China and its around 3 hours journey from Hong Kong. We took the ferry from Hong Kong to Shunde and an extra 1-hour drive to 寶林寺. This is just a nice quiet temple and it is described by locals as the pride of Shunde people. I’ll be posting in my next posts more photos of this place.

Entrance gods of the temple!

the Palace, bangkok

by roniel

I got an afternoon to visit the Grand Palace and to have a chance to glance through the previous home of the King. the whole palace was really very beautiful and we could even see the marvelous architecture. I was amazed with how the thai’s choice of colors – really colorful. I also really liked that the tourists would show their respect and wear long pants and the ladies would wear clothes that also cover the arms and legs – it was quite hot that day so wearing long pants was really quite hot.

I must say that the matching gold with plenty of colors does match the buildings and even makes it sort of mysterious feeling as well as having a ‘grand’ feeling. I would definitely visit the palace again when I visit Bangkok next time~

the streets of bangkok

by roniel

had another great trip in bangkok. enjoyed myself with spa and just wondering around the streets in bangkok. tried their monorail called BTS and find that it is really the best way to go around the city – taxi is very cheap – but the traffic is just unbearable.

i was on my way to the palace and found this hawker on the street selling ice-cream. it was very hard to resist. the funny thing was after buying the ice-cream for myself, a few foreigners came and asked me what flavor it was – i guess my face expression made the coconut flavored ice-cream attractive 🙂

Miniature Tea Restaurant (冰室)

by roniel

Anybody wants a nice cold red bean drink (紅豆冰) or try out the famous HK pineapple bun (菠蘿油) in a traditional HK style Tea Restaurant (茶餐廳/冰室) – I’m sure this will bring back lots of memories. I guess there is not many restaurants like this left in HK – including this one…

 

Stinky/Smelly Tofu (臭豆腐): MY FAVORITE!!!

Whatever you call it – stinky tofu is the one of the best delicacies you will find it HK! It is the icon and one of the must-have food in HK (in my opinion). I just love the texture, the outside crunchiness and the spongy feeling inside – AND, you must add the red sauce to make it even more tastier.

I remember back in the old days where there were street hawkers selling smelly tofu on the street – I used to have at least 2 every time I see him. And sometimes I do wonder how he carries the oily wok around the streets.

Doris.&.Lallruns

doris.&.lallruns

One good friend from high school (form 7) for married yesterday @ ROSARY Church and it was my honor to witness to this nice and romantic wedding ceremony. I felt very happy seeing them get married in a church – and it was such a coincidence since I did consider this church as well… It is such a beautiful wedding and I couldn’t use many words to express it so it would better to show it with my camera. It also made me want to go to church again… I didn’t go for quite some time already and I know there are always so many reasons that I could think of for why I didn’t go – OK! I’ll GO! ……….. next week :p

Btw, I’m still always confused about Lallruns’s name: Wasn’t it Lawrence? It has the same pronunciation so I always get confused… Ooops…

Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS Lallruns & Doris!
