Wagyu meat heaven!
The wagyu being prepared as sukiyaki
The memories flood back as I see this photo and
I find myself wishing to have this dish again soon! :b
Last week, I had the good fortune to be invited by a friend to what amounted to a veritable wagyu feast. And bef...
# 2013-05-21 04:05:47, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE Since I've been on more than 100 hikes in Hong Kong now, it stands to reason that I've gone on certain trails more than once. But while some might expect that the trails I've decided to go on more than once are especially scenic or special, that's actually not the case with that which is covered b...

Do we really want to go up that?!
Yes, because by that point, one's already climbed up
pretty high up Needle Hill already!
And yes, there really are beautiful views to be had
atop the 532 meter hill that's
Hong Kong's joint 40th highest (with Mount Parker)
Last week, a friend ...

This was one of those weeks where I had lots of photos for Sandi's chosen Photo Hunt theme (Glass) and Gattina's (Show hands)
but not all that many which combined them. But after hunting through
my photo archive, I've come across at least three -- and I didn't even
have to use a ma...

From left to right: Xia Yu, Charlie Young (aka Charlie Yeung),
Aaron Kwok, Kwai Lun Mei and Chang Chen
The same people -- and more -- appear on a big screen
at the same event and venue
The occasion: the gala premiere of Charlie Young's
first film as a director and scriptwriter, Chri...
# 2013-05-15 14:32:06, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE After writing about a hike where I wasn't able to get to the top of a hill with the kind of name that had struck my fancy and made me want to go up it, here's writing about a hike where I was able to do what I had set out to achieve! More specifically, here's finally putting up a photo-essay of th...

How my hiking shoes, socks and lower parts
of my legs looked towards the end of today's hike :S
The result of hiking on narrow, muddy -- and
most definitely unpaved -- trails like this one
The only other person I saw out hiking
in the area today was my hike buddy!

Lookit! Wow! A giant plushy pink rabbit's inviting us to "Chill out on my tum!" That was my reaction after dinner one evening at the Miramall when the friend I had gone out to dinner and I spotted the giant plushy pink rabbit sprawled out in the center of the mall's basement flo...

Have you ever had one of those moments when you got to thinking that "I feel like I'm in a movie" -- more precisely, "I feel like I'm in a Hong Kong movie"? Well, I had several of those one evening a couple of months back -- one that...
# 2013-05-07 03:41:07, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE So... Jacob's Ladder. Or as a hiking buddy put it -- "more like Jacob's disabled access"! After having put off hiking along this part of Hong Kong for ages (and thereby not having been able to enjoy the experience of hanging out for a time at lovely Cheung Sheung Plateau), finally descending alo...

Large razor clams topped with black bean sauce
and transparent vermicelli
Scallops topped with garlic, more of that vermicelli
and chopped bits of spring onions
Delicious by itself but so much better when eaten with rice! :b
Yesterday, I mainly blogged about the hike I went on bu...

The signal station and trigonometrical station at the top of
Ling Kok Shan were my main hiking destinations for today
The view of the trigonometrical station and
signal station from the top of the 250 meter hill
And yes, even with the haze, there were some nice views
to be h...

Pretty much every day that I'm in Hong Kong, I spend some time underwater as well as underground. This is because my regular work commute involves being on a bus whose route includes the Cross Harbour Tunnel (that goes underneath Victoria Harbour) as well as taking a Mass Transit Railw...

Tossing paper offerings to the Goddess
of the Sea on Tin Hau's Birthday
There was a festive air in Joss House Bay that day
Dancing lions and colorful flags are a must
on such celebratory occasions :)
Three years ago, I took a ferry to Joss House Bay to check out the Tin Hau's Birthday celebrations at Hong Kong's oldest...

Today, I had my first sighting this year of a butterfly
known as the Lemon Emigrant :)
I also spotted this long-tailed skink on the hike
Another interesting creature out on today
was this cool stick insect :)
Early on in today's hike that took me up Mount Parker Road and then d...
