I’ve been wanting to visit this trestle for a while now. Continue reading
Today we did some sightseeing and decided to take the cable car up to Lantau Island to see Tian Tan Buddha (the big buddha). We took the Ngong Ping 360 cable car up and got a sweet view of the islands. Below there’s a trail people can also take if they want to do hikes. It looked like it would be a nice hike – if you like a bunch of stairs! But I’m sure it’s probably not that bad, I just don’t think my knee would like it too much. Continue reading
The family split up a little bit today – half of my cousins decided to go and shop some more – the other half are visiting old friends – the other half decided to go check out this science museum that caters to children about workplace safety. Yeah I know. There’s an actual SCIENCE MUSUEM for this. Suffice to say, my nephew LOVED IT. He’s obsessed with garbage trucks, dump trucks, and excavators. It was a dream come true.
On Day 6, we set out to check out a Nature Sanctuary which took about 4 MTR (train stations) to get to! It was alright. I mean, it reminded me a little bit of Swans Nature Sanctuary in Victoria, BC.
Today was a very adventurous day.
My cousin Jeff essentially became our tour guide for most of this trip and I can’t thank him enough for his patience! He took us to the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. We took the scenic route where we climbed up some steep hills to get there but it was still a lot of fun when you’re adventuring with cousins you haven’t seen in a few years.
Afterwards, we went and explored “old Hong Kong” alleyways – LOTS of downhill stairs – much to my cousin Peter’s “enjoyment”. I’m just thankful my knee didn’t give out during that whole time! Continue reading
Today is a bittersweet day. It is the last FILMING DAY of 13 Miles! I have literally been apart of this project for a year (I think?). And what better way to celebrate the last day then to have our biggest crew gathering ever. With a special appearance of SNOW!
Thanks Anthony and Helena from Habethy Film for having me along on this special journey! I learnt a lot! And MET a lot of wonderful people out of it.
We filmed at a small airport next to the main YVR airport. It wasn’t too crowded and there weren’t many signs or billboards anywhere! Making it the perfect airport location to film.
Today was one of those days where the night felt like it was never going to end… and when it did you had to work your day job right afterwards. It was a full-on 32 hour day for me.
It was just a small crew this time.
I struggled climbing up all those stairs because of my bad left knee. I also struggled with trying to do 360 shots with Pooka. Which made me frustrated throughout the day among other things.
Overall, it wasn’t a great day for me, but what I could get with the drone (eventually) made me realize how much more practice I need with doing slow panning 360 shots.
Today we filmed on a track, a forest trail, and then took a ferry back and forth at Horseshoe Bay.
This was probably one of the funner days (in the rain).
