praying to the god of fortune






gosh, i can’t remember where’s this place. apparently, all the “boat people” shelter from the typhoon here.




self-portrait 101: pretend to look nonchalant.


the famous jumbo seafood restaurant








supposedly sir li ka shing‘s boat…


a tad bored while waiting for the rest of the tour group to board the coach…


stopped by a jewellery factory to allow the tour guide to earn some side income from the commission.




took a cable car to ngong ping village, which is set on a 1.5ha land on lantau island.


panoramic view from the cable car


last year, a cable car plunged 50m to the ground… *shudder* but fortunately, it was only a brake test and no passengers were riding in the cabin.





it is approximately a 20-minute ride, travelling along the 5.7km long bi-cable gondola lift system.

tian tan buddha


nope, did not climb those steps.

did not attempt to be enlightened by sitting under the bodhi tree

avenue of stars




simple but delicious meal
