Shocked Shocked Shocked This is incredible. BTW, if you consume so much calories everyday but only eat so little, you will soon become the "incredible shrinking woman" Wink Wink . Hope next time I'll see a lot more delicious food on your dinner table Laughing .

The pic you just couldn't resist to take, is sooo beautiful love . It looks like an award winning shot Very Happy . Thanks for sharing flower .

And, the pink ants, I couldn't figure out what they were trying to move on the tree Think

As for posting an mp3 file here, I think you would have to load it on a web, eg, facebook, or youtube, or weibo, or instagram....... etc etc, then you can copy the link (web address) here so we can listen "your hello" to us Wink Laughing ... or maybe it's too much trouble Confused d'oh! . I kind of already heard "your pretty voice", with your description Razz Wink .

Yitian, don`t worry! I can loose several kgs and still won`t look like a beanpole. Wink And I wouldn`t mind if I shrink a bit. I had a "Chaa Siu Baau" to go yesterday as well and at night beer and some potato chips. Very Happy

Today the monitor says 20k and ~ 2000kcal. I did not go running this morning but tomorrow I will. Last test before the race on Saturday.

Helga and Yitian, I`m glad you like that b/w pic.

This morning I went back to Wong Nai Chung because I`ve discovered there are some preserved "leftovers" from WW2. I walked the Wong Nai Chung Gap Trail to see some of them.



You can see it was quite misty in the morning. Leftovers of an anti aircraft gun.



Pillbox at Jardine`s Lookout.



Centepede, beautiful but I read somewhere that their bite can be quite nasty.
Somehow I have to think of "The Eagle Shooting Heroes" hahaha.



Visibility got better.



Interesting to walk this area where a big battle has been fought.


After that I went to Kwai Chung Plaza to look for something I`ve promised to bring home for some of my girls/clients at work.

Here you can see a part of the ground level, packed with goods.



This is the craziest shopping mall I`ve ever seen. It has no kind of order of the shops whatsoever, no system, no nothing. There are food stalls, doctors, beauty parlors, shops with toys or clothes right next to each other and as much as I try each time, I loose orientation immediately. Those many, many tiny shops. Dizzy




My lunch




And after that (I`ve got quite around in HK today Wink ) I had to kill 3 hours so I went up to one of my favorite places to Devil`s Peak.
One can say I went Military Site hopping today.

It got misty again.



The first butterfly this stay that was patient enough to wait till I got my camera ready.





I like to walk around such "leftovers".



It got a bit spooky.



And you all remember this place ... I hope? scratch




I met a friend for dinner. She let me pick and we went to Lin Heung in Sheung Wan, I love this place.

Pork chops with honey - oh so yummy



And my friend wanted sweet and sour fish.



Lot`s of pix from today but there was much to see. I hope I don`t bore you with those military sites. Confused

Thanks Heike,

Nice pictures including food.
I wish I could eat them now. Rolling Eyes

These made me hungry, so I am going to have breakfast. (I don't usually have breakfast.)

Of course we are all interested in HK, so more pictures are welcomed ! Very Happy

Thank you in advance.

Beautiful pics + mouth watering food, thanks for sharing as always ->> similar to Eri, I've been feeling hungry ever since I saw your pics Drool Embarassed . Some of the foods are so Chinese, guess one would have difficulties to find them in other parts of the world Very Happy .

It's amazing that you always find pix to reflect some of the Tony movies love : the centepede and the sausage lips in "The Eagle Shooting Heroes" Laughing Laughing ; and I still remember going through frame by frame in order to pin point the shooting location in "Bullet in the Head" Wink .

Given you are not too tired, the more pix the better..... Very Happy ..... and good luck for your upcoming runs thumbleft .

Haha Eri and Yitian, happy my pics made you hungry. I went 10k this morning on an empty stomach BUT the breakfast afterwards was deeelish. No pic I posted one of maccaroni in soup and fried eggs already.

I`m glad you like my photos, then the time I invest in uploading and posting them is well worth it. thumbright

After the run in the morning I didn`t want to walk much much more, so I went to Stanley.

Entrance to Stanley Military Cemetery



Nice and quiet place



If you want to know more about this place



View from St. Stephen`s Beach towards the "touristy area".



Lunch at Toby Inn. Eri and Tina probably remember this place. I had lemon chicken, I always eat that dish there - so yummy.



Should I be worried? Nah!



Pak Tai temple



My friend, you already know him. This one is different though. No weapon but a scroll.



Inside, lotsa smoke from incense.



Fisherman at work at a nice and quiet beach beyond Pak Tai temple



It got foggy again.



And this one was exceedingly patient. Isn`t he a beauty?



Repulse Bay, it was quite warm today ... as you can see.





And for dinner I went to Sang Kee in Burd Street. Very tasty.

Beautiful pix as attractive as always. Thanks for spending so much time organizing, posting and explaining Giving a kiss . You definitely can pass as a HK tour guide.

About the place where children cant go alone, you obviously didn't encounter any wild boars or snakes Wink , but one doesn't know what you will meet next time, please be careful Pray .

I love to see the pix of HK in mystic fog, so wonderful love . I think in large measure it owes to your super photographic skills Very Happy .

I had to LOL at your favorite statuette, sitting next to an empty bottle of vodka. Is this bottle made him sitting down? Is he reading a way to get sober?? Laughing Laughing Laughing ...

No photographic skills, most pics are taken with my mobile, no settings, no nothing.

I bet Guan Gung would have loved that stuff.

Oh yes Helga. Some with two legs, some with four legs. Laughing


Today I went to Pak Shek Kok promenade to check out the way to the venue for tomorrows race, just to take a bit of the excitement away. There will be enough excitement already.

[/img]

Preparations have been made already.



The last turning point. I guess when I made it till this point, the last 3k should be OK. It`s the "C" mark on the yellow announcement above.



Then I walked all the way to Tai Po.



A late lunch at a japanese restaurant. To be honest, disappointing. I had a wonderful tasty meal at a japanese restaurant 2 years ago - my very first one and hoped to find something like that. This dish lacked taste all over, the only tasty thing in it was seaweed. Oh yes, it turned out I don`t like seaweed.



And yes, it got foggy again.



No idea if there is something to post tomorrow. I hope I can make it to the finish line, forecast says already 24 degress at 8am, the race starts at 8.45am. Shocked Shocked Shocked
Dizzy shaking

Thanks for the wishes you two!

Today was ... RACE DAY

It was hot and humid. My friend told me towards the end of the race it was 96% humidity. Shocked Thank god the race was along the harbour, so there was always a slight breeze.



Almost 8.45am. Let`s gooo before the clouds go away and the sun comes out.



Each finisher received a shirt. It fits nicely with my bib.



What can I say, finisher time was a bit better then I expected. Waiting for the official result and looking forward to the photos. Cool



What was interesting to see, people start their race much too fast and after the half they are finished, out of breath and have to walk. How come? Lack of experience?
Another thing which was different from races in Germany, when the leading man/woman is passing by, in Germany the runners are cheering and applauding in respect for the performance of those up front. Here it was mostly silence, just when I startet clapping my hands some people joined in. I think that`s a bit sad.

My well deserved breakfast.



Nice old building in Sai Ying Pun.



Rain is expected



Somewhere under the clouds is my favorite jogging track at The Peak.



Passing by ...



A ferry towards the middle of nowhere ... actually Cheung Chau, I guess.



Bed is calling early today, I woke up at 5am. shaking Sleepy
