A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part V, Victoria Peak

This is Central where another of the tourist "traps" are, Victoria Peak. I've visited the place before as a kid but didn't really appreciate the view at the time so having taken an interest in photography, I decided to go again for the view and some night shots. Dropped by Cafe de Coral for some chicken beef burger sausage rice . It's not...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part IV, Import Goods

Spent some time going around the stores to see if I could find some of the import goods I was planning to order online before I left for Hong Kong. Just get off at Causeway Bay and you'll find an exit that connects to the building. A giant walking piece of raw meat! That guy (or girl?) must be being boiled alive in there with the hot weather...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part III, Ngong Ping 360

The next place I wanted to visit was the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride which leads to the temples and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. It was already up the last time I was here but was very much plagued with problems so I never went the last time. This time I decided to go because it had new "crystal glass" bottom cabins and thought it should be...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part II

One of the things about Hong Kong is there are fairly much at least one single shopping plaza at each underground station. They all come with their own kind of interior decorations and most importantly, they're not filled with the same stores everywhere such as they would be in Glasgow with Curry, WHSmith, Game etc. And here is one of the...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part I

Been here for almost a week now and hasn't rained at all yet. Still trying to get used to the blazing sun and the heat which is around the 27C mark. First thing when you're in Hong Kong is to get yourself one of these "Octopus Cards" from the MTR, train or bus stations. As the name suggests, it has plenty of uses. You can use it for all the main...


Flight to Hong Kong 2009

The Glasgow Airport's changed quite a bit since the last time I was there which was over two years ago. You now have to make your way through a big car park complex surrounding the main building before you can get inside after the terror attack. Inside, half of it is sealed off by the bridge where you used to be able to access the shops so...


A Change of Layout May 2009

It's not what I had in mind but, this quickly modified version of the DeepBlue theme doesn't look too shabby... Maybe I'll end up building on this layout instead and try to smooth out the rough edges. You can see the widgets on the sidebars are too cramped together at the moment and I'd like to do something a bit more with the background....


Earl Grey Tea

Was going about my usual grocery round at the supermarket when I was passing through the drinks section and saw some boxes of "Earl Grey" tea. I don't really drink tea that much but I was immediately reminded of Kurokami where Excel and Akane were talking about it. Wondering what was so special about the tea they had to give it a mention in...


Oh - Pak Ho, The Process of Growing Up

Starting to get a little tired of Pak Ho's "Under The Same Sky" since coming across it and having it on my DAP for over a year so I decided to check out his other songs. This song "Oh" which was on the same album sounds very good too. It has a very smooth melody to it. Once again, I can agree with most of the lyrics although some are aimed towards...


Bandwidth Depleted for April, A Bit of Blog Stats

Ouch! Looks like the decision to host 227MB of those unofficial Trauma Centre OSTs privately really hit my bandwidth usage this month, eating up the full 30GB allowance and knocking my blog offline since around 08:30 BST. I don't see many hits to those posts though, which means a lot of people must have been "leeching" off my blog even...
