Hong Kong pt3 (Final) – Carribean?

Beaech

Can be an alternative….but less exotic. This is Lamma Island, which is about 30 minute boat ride from the city centre. Great place to hike, walk your dog, have a beach party…anything.

Beach

Not many people around meaning you can relax in peace….shame it was quite chilly.

The protagonist of the day, Cissy the dog…this dog is sooooo slow at following to the point where we had to carry her to catch the last boat back. >_<

Credits to Kit aka. Styleslicker with her damn camera lense…want to buy it.

Hong Kong Fact: Seems like 25 per cent of the population now are all foreigners…Hong Kong has become a place where you can survive speaking only English…thanks Americans, Filipinos, Brits, and Indonesians for invading our lands
*joke* -___-

Hong Kong pt. 2 – The Chocolate Library

Yup so first thought is what the hell is a chocolate library? No its not where we eat books…

So me and my friend decided to go for afternoon tea at the Ritz Carlton (as a birthday treat) and they are infamous for their ‘Chocolate Library’. So basically it is afternoon tea presented as a form of a book case, and as the name suggests they are mostly chocolate based.

Ok so what do we have? At the bottom left we have sandwiches in a shape of a sushi. The bottom left we have froie gras in a form of a canape. Finally from the middle to top are all chocolate desserts. MMMMMM

Desserts include chocolate cheescake, yoghurt, cake, cappuccino cake, macaron etc.

Of course what afternoon tea would it be without a cup of cuppuccino ❤

And an amazing view….

Definitely worth a visit! Check it out guys =P

Hong Kong Fact: The city is VERY polluted. It is to the point where it is almost impossible to see the infamous Hong Kong view during the daytime as it is covered by smog! So i wonder why people even bother taking photos of that view during the daytime as i walk along the VIctora Harbour…tourists…seriously.

Pollution is so bad that new laws have been passed stating that if a car is at a stand still for ten minutes they must switch off their car engines.

Let them (Koreans) know its Christmas time!

Anyways Just wanna say thanks again for the gifts ^^ it means alot…thinking of every specie in England all the time!

SO yea….If you are a vegetarian or a vegan in Korea, well you probably be getting looks which say “What is the point in eating at all then?” Koreans are carnivores…Without meat present on the table they will most likely look down with disappointment.

Of course BBQ in Korea is a big thing not just to satisfy their hunger but socially as well. It is very practical and requires a small amount of teamwork when cooking the meat.
