My Weekend Trip to Yim Tin Tsai, Sai Kung

The Sampan boat, docked at Sai Kung Pier, provided the transport to Yim Tim Tsai Island.

Eager children seated outside the boat to enjoy more of the scenery.

We passed by a group of Kayakers as we sailed to Island - as seen from the boat's window view.

Before heading back to Sai Kung, I decided to have a quick meal on one of the open restaurant in the island.

Half-chicken was grilled on a stone stove and I was served with brown rice with it.

The ferry service are available on weekends and Public Holidays. From Sai Kung, earliest schedule is at 10:00 am. Last ferry from Yim Tin Tsai is at 5:00 pm.

Central at Night Time

Every time I come back from my weekend frolic to Lantau Island, Wetland Park or even nearby Tsim Sha Tsui, I always pass by Central as it links to the MTR towards Lohas Park, my residence.

Usually when I arrive there, it is already late hours of the night. Still, there is something about its inherent urban beauty that propels me to take quick shots as I briskly pass through.

Here are some of the photos I have taken this past months. See if you can recognize the spot where I have taken them, although a few of them are quite obvious.

Early Morning at Lohas Park

I took an early morning stroll this morning. The fog and mist, which have been present for the past month, have miraculously cleared giving way to magnificent views of the mountains beyond. 

Below were the shots I took this morning at my residence at Lohas Park. I hope you will enjoy them.

Profusion of Colours - Hong Kong Flower Show 2015

As part of heralding the coming of Spring, this year's Hong Kong Flower Show has opened and is up for viewing at Victoria Park. Featuring "Oncidium" as its theme flowers, this yearly event attracted photographers, the elderly, painters, and of course avid gardeners.

On show were rich profusion of potted plants, beautiful floral arrangements as well as gorgeous landscape displays by Locals, Mainland and overseas participants. The gardens were brilliant, the open spaces fantastic and the attractions seemed endless. Plenty for the youngsters and for those inclined to just wandering around. The Nursery shops were  also brimming with enthusiastic buyers. 

I really enjoyed the flower sculptures, the gardens and the entertainment at the flower show. I spent my entire weekend there, and still want to see more. But you must have comfortable shoes, since you will be on your feet the entire day. There is so much to see - you do not want to skip anything. Take your camera and sufficient memory card.  

Overall a pleasant day-out with lots to see. If by chance you haven't seen it yet and you do not have a busy schedule, you still have the opportunity to see it as the show exhibition will run till March 29, 2015.

Here were some of the photos I took that day. Hope you will enjoy them.
