EXPLORING GOLDSTREAM TRESTLE

I’ve been wanting to visit this trestle for a while now. Continue reading

Day 10 – Hong Kong

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

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

BEHIND THE SCENES: 13 MILES MOVIE – THE CHIEF

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.

HIKING LINDEMAN LAKE

This was maybe one of the more challenging hikes (so far) for me. Lots of incline, not enough breaths taken or exercise done to prepare haha
