Sai Kung Camping

Something different for a Friday night, and a fab way to wake up on a Saturday.

After work, with headlamps to light the way, we hiked about 2 hours through Sai Kung Country Park to Ham Tin Wan, pitched our tent, had a picnic for dinner and fell asleep under the stars. Sunrise at about 5.30am was a stunning wake up call, and then I set off for Sharp Peak while the summer’s day was yet to blaze. The rest of the day was lazy: food at On Kee Store on the beach (tel: 2328 2262), reading and napping, dipping in the clear blue bay, strolling across the soft sand, and then a sunset speedboat (tel: 9800 3601, Mr Man Tsam for booking) back to Sai Kung Town for a Thai dinner. Perfect.


The only thing shining brighter on this sweltering perfect Sunday was my little big ray of sunshine. 

A fresh start

To new friends and new beginnings…


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).
