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 4 – Hong Kong

Today I decided to join my parents, older sister, brother-in-law, and nephew — and i’m returning to the place where I got lost as a child….OCEAN PARK!

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

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.

TODAY HAS BEEN AWESOME

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)

CRESCENT BEACH

It’s been almost a month (I think) since I bought my DJI Mavic Pro drone! And even LONGER since my last post. I should really get back into writing some more!

HOGWARTS AT CRAIGDARROCH CASTLE

This is how I would imagine what a Hogwarts castle would look like in Victoria, B.C. It may seem like a smaller size in scale on the outside, but once you walk inside, it’s a lot larger. (Like a T.A.R.D.I.S.!)  Continue reading

PLEASE DON’T KILL ME

Saturday was just a busy fun hectic day!

First of all, I got up early in the morning to get ready to go meet up with my friend Kristy to go to the Icebreaker sale happening at some hotel downtown. Apparently this two-day sale is something that has been happening for a few years now.(?)screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-6-39-34-pm Continue reading

BEYONCÉ WAS THE BEST PART

Friday night I got asked to watch Doctor Strange with Adrian and his sister and friend. The theatre that we were going to was the one in Richmond. I have never been to the Silvercity in Richmond. Therefore, I was not PREPARED for the clusterfuck that is the underground parkade which is also the parkade for a T&T supermarket.

Needless to say, when I got there it was at 5pm. The movie doesn’t “start” until 5:15pm. The reason why I put the time in quotation marks is because (having worked at a Silvercity in Victoria for 9 years) that usually means at 5:15pm ads will be playing for a good 5 minutes and then the trailers will be another 10minutes. So I had a good 15 minutes before the actual movie starts.  Continue reading

HANGING AT ENGLISH BAY

I haven’t written a mini-blog post in forever! I’m slowly getting back into it.

After a few days of pouring rain in Vancouver (or Raincouver for those of us who live here), the sun finally came out. Not to miss this somewhat otherwise “rare” opportunity before more rainclouds decide to pour in, I joined my friend for a walk along English Bay.
