We are going 2 Hong Kong Disneyland!

It’s hard to come by anyone around us who doesn’t know Disney characters. Most of us grew up with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy … as well as my favourite Toy Story!

Let’s go Cheung Chau 長洲

Guess what is this steel structure tower for?

What about these bamboo towers?

Why is this harmless looking rotten bun being cordoned off?

The stone lion’s got a fresh one, however…

Answer: The three towers are piled with sweet buns believed to bring good luck during Cheung Chau Bun Festival (長洲太平清醮) which is held on the fourth month […]

Discover Hong Kong again

Following my parents’ encounter with Wind Signal no. 3 during their Hong Kong trip in April 08, my sis visited Hong Kong in June 08 for the first time. She was really “lucky” to encounter Wind Signal no. 8! Fortunately, on the day of her departure back to Singapore, the delayed flight did not […]
