Something different – Chocolate Villa, Bangkok

by roniel

A 40min drive from Bangkok city is this nice paradise called chocolate villa~ with its nice western vintage style! It’s very relaxing especially walking along the artificial lake in the middle~

We see quite of couples taking per-wedding photos here too…

And just 10 mins drive from chocolate villa is a nice place to have lunch… The locals would know it but I forgot the name of the place but I’m sure you could ask around where the nearest place for having lunch… And they would definitely point the direction:)

A nice day for some sports…

by roniel

this has become one of my favorite sports recently, although i’m still not good at this sport, its one of the sports that i can chat while playing the sport~ this is my favorite part of this sport is that time is unlimited and i can chat with the people I play the sport with and not affect others~

Lake Egret Nature Park @ Tai Po

by roniel

First time to check this nice place located in Tai Po – it is not near the train station so you might need to take a cab from the station to this nice place. It is quiet around the lake and having a short walk before having BBQ at the rooftop restaurant.

there is this very nice white house at the middle of the lake where a lot of couples take nice pre-wedding photos… we could book this little house for a romantic dinner for two.

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 🙂

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!
