Hong Kong Japanese Pop Culture Stores Re-Visited

It's been 8 years since I last wrote about where to find import Japanese pop culture/otaku Anime goods in Hong Kong so I thought I'd write about it again. I visit HK frequently so it's worth knowing about these places for me being a big fan of Japanese video games and Anime. Not much has really changed since that post in 2009 but there are a...


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...

So, here's a guide with a list of services I've used over the years and a number of things you should be aware of if you're in the UK. As you know, everything in the UK is sold with VAT Value...


Theme Hospital on a Modern Windows PC

15/12/2012 UPDATE To save you the hassle of going through all these technical tweaks, try Corsix-TH instead. It is still in its early development stages so you'll spot the odd bug but from what I've tried so far, it is easier and a lot more stable than using these tweaks and supports today's modern screen sizes. No more funny colours and...


World War Z in Glasgow ::

The production of World War Z has been underway in the city of Glasgow for the past few weeks. It's a US$30 million movie based on a novel of the same name and stars Brad Pitt. Apparently they chose Glasgow over the real Philadelphia because of the tax breaks here which means it would be cheaper to film. Naturally I went out during the...


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...
