Day 8 – Hong Kong

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.

Day 6 – Hong Kong

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.

Day 5 – Hong Kong

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

DAY 3 – Hong Kong

It’s our first FULL day here in Hong Kong! We are staying at the Holiday Inn across for iSquare in the heart of the shopping district. I would go as far to say it was similar to Times Square in New York. Very similar vibe. Continue reading

MIKAILA TOMBE

Opening for CHRIS HO‘s album release was MIKAILA TOMBE whom I’ve never heard of before (being out of touch with the music scene for over a year – I haven’t kept up with a lot of bands/artists like I used to) hails from Nanaimo, BC.

DRONE FLIGHTS AT WHYTECLIFF PARK

Decided to head to Whytecliff Park today with my buddy, Adrian. We left a little later than I would have liked as I usually leave around 10/11am to beat the traffic and avoid how busy the park would be.

HAPPY MAY LONG WEEKEND — I’m on the island!!

First thing I did and knew I wanted to do was fly Pooka around town! (well parts of a general area). Considering it was an epic failure flight yesterday (you can watch that video it’s titled “I CAN’T BELIEVE I DID THAT”) after I got off the ferry and understand why I wanted REDEMPTION.

I started out at Cadboro Bay (Gyro Park) (5 minutes away)
