Planet J Kids Indoor Playroom

One of the newer indoor playrooms in Hong Kong is inside the shopping mall Windsor House in Causeway Bay. It is called Planet J Kids and is located on Floor 13. On the one hand this is very convenient in the heart of the shopping district, but of course, on the other hand this means… Continue reading Planet J Kids Indoor Playroom

Exhibition: The dinosaurs are loose at the IFC

There is currently a dinosaur exhibition at the IFC shopping mall in Central, which is called Meet the T.Rex until June 27, 2018. This is worth visiting if you have a toddler that needs to be occupied for 30-45 minutes and is interested in dinosaurs. The focus is on the Tyrannosaurus Rex and there is… Continue reading Exhibition: The dinosaurs are loose at the IFC

Hello (again) – welcome back!

I started this blog in 2011, when I first arrived in Hong Kong. Back then I did what many did, I wrote a little bit about everything – from eating out in cha chaan tengs, hiking across the Wilson, Hong Kong, Lantau, MacLehose trails to experimenting in street photography and travelling across Asia. It was… Continue reading Hello (again) – welcome back!

Anyway, it seems that whenever I had plans to Cheung Chau, the weather changed or it was a public… Continue reading Cheung Chau Island

Urban getaway: Chung Hom Kok Beach

Sometimes it takes five years and longer to discover a really great spot - in this case, it's a beach. Chung Hom Kok is one of the prettiest and most relaxing beaches in Hong Kong, and it is actually not too far away from our home (compared to some of the beaches around Sai Kung!).… Continue reading Urban getaway: Chung Hom Kok Beach

Revisited: Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin

It has been almost five years since I've last visited the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery, so it was due for a revisit. This time, I took Lina along and therefore I decided to walk up in cool January rather than humid April (like last time). I knew that the path to the monastery is hidden… Continue reading Revisited: Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin
