Check out the difference…

by roniel

Housing is always a problem in HK. A 2-story condo vs the houses made of poor quality steel…

At the same area, one os worth over $40million hk dollars… And guess how much the other is worth…

Goodbye Lee Yuen Restaurant!

by roniel

Another restaurant that has long history cannot stand the soooo expensive rent in the busy area of Causeway Bay. Well, its actually expected since its such a good area for having another electric or cosmetic shop… Haha!

P.s. I’d love to try again for one last time but the long queue really just scares me…

Twin Tower, Malaysia

by roniel

It may not look that special at day light but the Twin Tower at night is so charming and spectacular!

a half-day in Macau

by roniel

Macau is always fun for a short-trip: its near, the balance of new and old buildings, and there are always new casinos! Such endless fun! Had a looked at the Galaxy for the first time – didn’t gamble – but cruised around the casinos floors to check out if there is anything different. Well, to be honest, it wasn’t really that interesting although the appearance was superb. It is not as classy and high-end as Wynn and not as interesting as the Venetian – there were not really much things to take photos (OK, I know a casino is a place where we can gamble).

Walking along the streets of Macau is amazing – I really love the streets of Macau. It can be crowded on the weekends with lots of tourists here and there – but it can also be quiet if you can get a chance to go there on the weekdays.

Photos taken outside Wynn – it was my first time to walk around the fountain outside the Wynn casino so I was quite impressed to see the nice view of the Macau tower and the bridge to Coloane. Try go there during sunset – it’s a scene I highly recommend.

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.

beijing in year 2007

by roniel

早幾日見新聞有關於北京紫禁城的報到令我突然想睇返以前影嘅相片。基於自己本身太懶同埋時間嘅關係、都完全冇retouch啲相 – 當我再睇返就發現啲好有趣嘅野 – 有幾張响紫禁城同長城係原全冇人o架!唔知下次去有冇機會再影到呢啲相呢?

Saw the news the other day about the installation of CCTV cams in the Forbidden City and decided to take my hard-drive and post some photos I took in Beijing, I know what BJ looks like but I was quite surprised to find some pics  were a clean shot – I mean there were nobody blocking the scenery when I took it – I mean its CHINA! That’s pretty amazing to take photos without so many people blocking the way… I guess I can’t these kind of photos next time… (makes me want to take out my passport and just go…ha!)

street hawkers checking out for ‘food’ police…

Want to ride your bike along the wharf? I feel like doing that now…

sydney: city of celebrations

Here are some pictures of Sydney.

I’m back to Sydney again! I visited Sydney many years ago and I rated this city as one of my favorite places in the world. Being back here only confirms this for me – Sydney offers all kind of cultural stimuli, a comparatively healthy economy, beaches and mountains in near range, a multi-cultural population and all lots of great yummy restaurants that I can’t visit unless I decide to live here. There are so many places that I would love to revisit such as the Fish market, the Rocks, Darling Harbor & China Town… and so many more… And the answer is Yes, I could live here, no problem (only if, Melbourne is not suitable anymore… ha). The only downside is, the place is physically so far away from everything else. I guess this handicap is also partly accountable for Sydney being such a great place to live too.
