Exploring Stanley

We love to go to Stanley on the weekend - we usually go there in the afternoon, take the kids and just stroll down the water promenade. We start by walking through the market, but usually we do not buy anything (except if we are looking for Chinese New Year costumes for the kids) and… Continue reading Exploring Stanley

Signal Hill Signal Tower

Just when I thought I had seen almost everything in Tsim Sha Tsui, I read about the Signal Hill Signal Tower and realised that I have no idea where it is. The Signal Tower sits in a small park and its entrance is at Minden Row. It is very close to the Middle Road Children's… Continue reading Signal Hill Signal Tower

Indoor Playroom, New Territories

Playscope Indoor Playroom

Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay

My children love anything and everything that is sweet - and they are big fans of waffles and pancakes. Usually we don't have the time or patience to wait for our turn at the long queue at Mammy Pancake, but during the last few days we've been lucky: the queue was not too long and… Continue reading Mammy Pancake in Causeway Bay
