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....


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.

Essential Android Apps

It's been a while since I upgraded to an Android phone and I thought I'd share some of the apps that I find invaluable. The downside I find with Android is there are fewer quality apps i.e. well designed user interface, few bugs and fulfils its goal well. And to top it off, they're usually buried beneath a huge range of rubbish and spam...


AMP3 Player’s Surprise Santa Sack 2010

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, Readers! Up to anything this year? Me, just some quality gaming time. As I mentioned before, I haven't really had any time to game since starting full time work so these days it takes me a lot longer to finish a single game which is why you don't see any reviews any more. However, it's not a bad thing...


Autumn Stroll, Edinburgh ::

It feels like a while since I wrote something for this blog. You will probably have noticed I haven't been writing for my blog much lately nor have I done any more translations. The reason behind that is that I am very much preoccupied with my full time job these days. That said, I still play games and watch the odd Anime show... Just not as...
