King of the Hills race 1

King of the Hills 2015/16 series: race 1, HK Island. Tired from the gun but thankfully it was just a short race. Besides, I was just absolutely happy to be out on a beautiful morning (and finishing third to win some swag).

Hike, coffee, cake, sun, sea with my baby. What could be better?

Tai O staycation

Stayed: Tai O Heritage Hotel, which is the former Tai O Police Station. We were given the room that was once the officers’ canteen. Breakfast was included – an American affair (Kellogg’s cereal, fresh cut fruit, eggs and processed meats, and horrible toast) at the Tai O Lookout restaurant. Nice ambience, crap food.

Did: Walked lots. Around Ngong Ping and hiked the Wisdom Path and Lantau Peak. And another hike to the Tai O “Infinity Pool”.

Ate: Lots. Highlights include a seafood meal at Good View Restaurant and a simple but scrumptious lunch of Tai O shrimp paste fried rice at Tai O Village Restaurant. And addictive melt-in-the-mouth almond cookies from 大澳鳳城手信 (plain, with black sesame, or chopped almond pieces were delicious; with salted egg, not for me).

Cheung Chau

Endless summer – literally.


High West

A beautiful morning for little M’s first trip up High West (494m).
