a sunny day at sai kung

by roniel

what a great memorable day to end the summer – a boat trip in sai kung on such a great afternoon! it is always a popular event to have a boat trip during the hot summers of Hong Kong! this is where friends and colleagues gather for drinks and water sports! everybody forgets about the trouble they have in mind and just drink and have fun – this is how to enjoy life!

of course – its always very IMPORTANT that we have enough drinks for such wonderful gatherings!

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.

ferry ride: from Wan Chai to TST

by roniel

Another day to take my partner out and take some photos! Today I’ve decided to take photos of Hong Kong’s best ride! The FERRY route from Wan Chai to TST! This 10-minute ride has the best views of both HK Island and Kowloon – there is no doubt about that! As a person living on the HK island – I find it sometimes quite troublesome to cross to Kowloon on the weekends since I always think you could find everything without crossing the tunnel – but that concept has changed especially when my wife family lives in the New Territories. I have crossed the harbor more times in this 2 years than my whole life living in HK.

Well, all I can say now is that I enjoy crossing the harbor via this Ferry:)

Hope the government won’t tear this pier too! (The HK Govt loves tearing down everything that people like) – I guess that’s the trend!

Wine Party @ Yuen Long

by roniel

What a Saturday! White wine & Red Wine + Pun Choy… What a great combination! I also found out that the owner studied at the same University (but from Clayton) as me~ what a coincidence! It’s really a small world! I can see that the owner really loves and misses Australia since there are lots of decorations from Australia.

Plus my favorite brand “PENFOLDS” – but these 2 vineyards are too expensive! I’ll need to wait till I win “Mark 6″… lol

Photo Walk from Chai Wan to Shau Kei Wan

by roniel

It’s been quite a while since I went and take photos just by myself… I looked out the window and saw the blue sky and said to myself – I should GO! And I did… I live in Chai Wan but I never really explored the area which I see everyday on the way back home and this was quite an oppurtunity.

the nice blue sky…

tunnel on my way to Shau Kei Wan…

still a long way till I get to Shau Kei Wan – but it was really a great walk.

A memorable trip to GuangDong Jiuzhaigou

by roniel

It was such a memorable trip with my best buddies to this wonderful place in the Guangdong province of China. This amazing place is known as “Guangdong’s Jiuzhaigou”. There are lots of waterfalls and mountains sights in this area – and I couldn’t stop taking photos – everything I see in this place is just worth every penny I spent. The people in the village were also nice to the tourists which made me feel a lot more comfortable and relaxed!

cultural village in Nienzhou: most of the men smoke and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this natural scene

the villagers welcomed all the visitors with a welcome drink made of local rice wine

beautiful waterfalls
