Hiking in Hong Kong - Trail Section 8 Dragon's Back

Hong Trail Section 8 AKA "Dragon's Back" is referred to as the "best hiking trail in Asia" by a lot of English travel guides so I had to see for myself after tackling Wilson's Trail Section 2. It's longer at 8.5km instead of 6.6km but supposedly easier. I chose to go during the weekdays when it's less busy and it was 24C - Pretty much a...


A Tour Around Hong Kong Wetland Park

I decided to go to the outskirts of Hong Kong, Tin Shui Wai to visit the Wetland Park because it looked like an interesting place to visit. To get to the park you can take the metro to Kowloon Tong Station before switching to the overground trains to Hung Hom. Then you can take the tram and if you get off at Tin Sau Station instead of Wetland...


Hiking in Hong Kong - Wilson's Trail Section 2

I go to Hong Kong quite often so I've pretty much been to all the tourist traps. Since I usually hang out in the shopping centres (or plazas as they call them locally) I decided to try and find something different to do this time. Hiking. Originally I wanted to cover the more notable "Dragon's Back" first because it was supposedly easier...


A Tour Around The ToySoul 2017 Exhibition

I've never been to a pop culture related exhibition in Hong Kong before but then I saw an ad for this toy exhibition "Toysoul" and decided to pop along to see if it was something worth visiting for a Japanese pop culture fan. You can get 1 day pass ticket from 7 Eleven for HK$30 which is really just a receipt than a fancy looking ticket. If you...

Tokyo Xanadu Visual Guide Artbook Review

I didn't really enjoy Tokyo Xanadu so it was a good thing I bought it second hand. However, I do like it's artwork - well, nearly all Falcom's artwork are good. Even Makoto Shinkai worked for them before after all. So I decided to import this A4 160 page "visual guide" artbook. Unfortunately, the wrapper arrived damaged because the proxy...


Your Name Art Book Review

There has been an artbook released for every Makoto Shinkai movie so far and Your Name is no exemption - not surprising considering its run away success and that it got a special "Collectors Edition". Unlike the visual guide book, it does not contain concept art or storyboards but the format is no different, once again in B6 paper back...


Dragon Quest Builders Review

Basically Dragon Quest meets Minecraft which means you build and explore with a purpose. The world has been destroyed by darkness and you as the hero/heroine is the only one that can remember how to build things. Silly plot eh? Each land represents a level and your objective is to build up the town and then eventually defeat the boss...
