Time flies, have a safe journey home Heike Waving .
Thanks for all the pics you shared with us here love , especially for those of us who have never set foot in HK.
You’ve caught a lot of exotic things with your fancy camera lens (hope you didn’t tough that red colored plant – it looks to me like an poisonous seed pot; nor that turquois blue lizard scratch ) . Surely they are so pretty to see Very Happy .
BTW, I was wondering while going through your beautiful pics – Why HK, a city by the sea, should have so many high points (as high as 1km) Question ….. This alone makes HK a mysteriously wonderful place Very Happy .
Surely you will go again next year Wink .

dear Heike, thank you for sharing the beautiful pics and your experience in HK thumbright It should have been very tough going up to the Lantau peak with your heavy backpack! I wish I was there, too. I have never hiked in Lantau yet. And I told you it would be very crowded in Cheung Chau la....... Wink

Hope you have safely arrived home. And maybe see you again later this year Very Happy

Dear Yitian, actually the majority of land in HK is mountain (that's why real estate prices here are so expensive Sad ). The Lantau peak Heike went up is the second highest mountain in HK. The highest one is Tai Mo Shan (957 meters). And there are so many hiking routes here. I think even if we go hiking every weekend, we can't finish all of them in two years!

Maybe I can share some pics taken during my hiking last year:

This is the famous Tai Long Sai Wan (大浪西灣) in Sai Kung.


The other three beaches beside Tai Long Sai Wan


Still Sai Kung, mountains and sea


The Lion Rock (獅子山) between Kowloon and New Territory



Ma On Shan (馬鞍山)


Shing Mun Reservior(城門水塘)

Haha yes Tina, you did. But that`s what I so very much like about HK, there are always other opportunities to go to different places.
Btw, the Lantau peak was not hiking, more climbing. What to do!

I remember reading an article in which the British referred to HK as "worthless rock in the south china sea".

Thanks a lot for sharing your fotos, Tina!
Tai Long Wan is on the top of my list. In Love
Lion Rock as well.

Thank you for sharing nice pictures, Hanasan.

Heike,

Do you remember that in the movie The Midnight After, all the people except passengers of the Red Mini Bus were disappeared when they were passing the Lion Rock.
Looks like a mysterious place.

Sooo, I promised you some food pics:

At Lung Kong in Yung Shue Wan: Chicken, mushrooms, sweet corn and rice ...

... my sister said it looks like "dirt with gravy". Shocked

Chicken, tomatoes, rice and iced lemon tea at Mr Ma in Yung Shue Wan.


Sweet and sour pork at Rainbow Seafood in Sok Kwu Wan


My beloved Lemon Chicken at Toby Inn in Stanley


Breakfast in my rocking chair on my balkony, egg tart, pineapple bun and tea


Shrimp, veggies and rice on Cheung Chau


As far as I remember that was chicken with black bean, Lung Kong YSW


At Ming Fat Spicy Crab (former Aberdeen Seafood) my favorite dai paai dong near temple street night market. Salt and pepper pork chops


Dim sum with Tina




Hey and I didn`t even gain some weight, must have been the kilometers of walking and of course the Lantau Peak - hahaha Dizzy

So friends, this should be it. Hope I could show you a bit of "my HK". In Love

I should add, to upload these 10 photos took less then 15 minutes. This is how sloowww the internet connection on Lamma really is. Shocked

Dear Tina, thank you so much for showing us pics of beautiful mountains and water of HK love .

I checked HK topography on Google, just as you say, it is incredible how little area (in purple, as developed area) is at sea level. I still think it is rare to have so many mountains on the east coast (most of it is as flat as a pancake) Wink .



Heike, it seems you love TsingTao Beer. I heard it is brewed based on German beer making technology, so it tastes very much like German beer.

Thanks again for all the pics and reports. Dim Sum with Tina looks really nice Drool . Look forward to reading Operation HK 2015 Very Happy .

Oh how much I would like to have one of those ... or just could smell it ... or feel and smell the seabreeze ... or the temperature which is now in HK ... it`s 5 degrees here. Crying or Very sad I`m already homesick.

Have to start to work tomorrow - late shift.

Oh Yitian, I do. Even at home I`m seldom without. Wink As far as I know, this brewery was founded by Germans. The beer doesn`t taste much like German beer, because we do not use rice - the purity requirements do not permit rice as an ingredient. The taste of TsingTao is more like the US Miller beer, which I like as well.

Glad you like the pics. I also had Dim Sum with Agnes, but took the pics too late, half of the food was already gone when I thought of making some pics Embarassed . Hey, I even had chickenfeet there. Very Happy My very first!

I hope that I can give you a Operation HK 2015, you never know what will happen within a year. Or some of you just accompany me in person, how about that? Idea
