Dusting off my old photos albums, reminiscing about the old days and putting on a slideshow. Grab some popcorn, sit down and enjoy the show.
I had a whirlwind trip to Hong Kong, I was there on business but I managed to get out and see some sites. The city is a hype of activity and there is always something going on. So many shops to browse in, places to eat, a free light show at Victoria Harbour and theme parks to explore.
Ocean Park is a marine themed park but it has a lot more of offer, including Australian animals. Must admit I felt a little guilty eating fish for dinner in the Grand Aquarium. Watching the fish swim past as I bite into my succulent seafood just didn’t sit right with me. It is a bit of a bizarre place but what I liked the most was seeing the pandas, including the red panda.
The day started with a character breakfast at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. There is no better way to start the day than sitting with Mickey Mouse! I remember listening to his recorders and doing mousercise (exercise album for children). Maybe he is the reason I became a qualified personal trainer?!
As soon as we arrived at the front of the park it was like a dream come true. Everything looked just like the movies, it was magical. So many attractions, shows, shops and rides to visit. At the time I was pregnant with JJ so I couldn’t go on any of the rides. Oh well at least I can tell her that she has been to Disneyland!
Dragon Boat Racing
I was lucky enough to be in Hong Kong when the Dragon Boat Festival was taking place. Colourful dragon boats race down the river to the beat of a drum down aiming to be the first one to cross the finish line. It is an energetic event that has been going for centuries and it has a wonderful vibe. It is hard to not get swept up in the atmosphere and cheer on the boats.
As it was such a quick trip to Hong Kong I would love to go back and explore more.
