  • Choi Hung Estate

    One of the most eye-catching places in Hong Kong: the Choi Hung Estate (Chinese: 彩虹邨) is an Instagram favourite with its many colourful blocks of flats framed by its equally vibrant basketball courts. Worth a trip if you’re a photographer or simply enjoy a splash of colour, try and go early to avoid the crowds […]

  • Sai Kung

    Sorry it has been a while since my last post but I was on a whistlestop tour of New Zealand and then had to move into my new house (we’re nearly done only a few things left to do now) but let’s jump back several months to that day I jumped off a waterfall in […]

  • Exploring Downtown Hong Kong

    One of the many joys of living in Hong Kong is the ability to wander through the city and being astounded by either the architecture, the people, or both. An area where this is particularly effective is Admiralty, you can wander from the Harbours edge to the iconic Hong Kong Park and be constantly wowed. […]

  • Suicide Cliff II

    This post is gonna be less story and more pretty because I didn’t take enough pictures to properly create a story but it’s worth the post anyway with just how pretty this whole day was This is one of the first few outings I did with my new lens (finally upgraded the stock 18-55 to […]

  • Hong Kong: New Year 2019

  • Hong Kong: Victoria Peak I

    From the HKU Campus up to Victoria Peak is a quick 45 minute hike, well more of a walk really but it reveals some spectacular views of Hong Kong and not just the one from the top The day started as many do in the learning commons at HKU which, if you get a space, […]

  • Chinese New Year

    Happy New Year of the Pig 2019 everybody, I didn’t take my camera up to the peak so you’ll have to deal with phone photos for this week. I have however been busy, Chinese New Year presents a lot of opportunities and you’ve got the week off which helps. The New Years Parade through Kowloon […]

  • Hong Kong: Chi Lin Nunery

    This is one of those really touristy things everyone should go see, the Nunnery is a not very old Buddhist Temple Complex with an amazing garden and some great architecture. Located in Diamond Hill it is slightly out of the way, as things in Hong Kong go anyways, but is definetly worth the MTR ride […]
