Heard and watched a lot about Hongkong as it is one of the stars on everyone’s childhood dreams but quickly brushed off the idea of it , thinking there’s no way i could come here. That was the time when i am not yet a believer due to the circumstances in life where i can only see a little bit of light along the way.
Surprisingly, a rush of air brought me here, my nerves built up heavily the minute i landed on this fantastic place. I used to decide on my own growing up, a motivator of my choices as well. I eventually getting into the idea that anything is possible which made me sometimes leap before i walk. This brought tons of lessons until I’ve seriously build a person in me to be worth sharing and inspiring others, good or bad, based on my experiences.
I can say it’s been cool, to honestly say i wouldn’t change a thing.
Resting and sweating my way up to the Big Buddha
Catching the excitement, feeling the pulse of the city life here by this double-decker bus.
Hongkong… It’s blue, it’s green, it’s love naturally. I was amazed with these skyscraper view, a parallel city. A big admiration and credits to those great minds behind it… and the Subway or MTR (Mass Railway Transit), gorgeous.. it is the most common public transport here due to it’s affordability and efficiency. It seems the length of travel and every station are already programmed in everyone’s consciousness.
You will see everyone is staring at their phones especially during rush hours. They just rise up when it’s time to go out. Not because the train makes an alarm signal every station, it’s strange just my weird thinking, everyone is busy on their gadgets. I know it’s a scenario everywhere nowadays. But at least it’s an indicator that public places like these are safe. Sneaking on one’s phone, i can’t read, as i expected it’s their letters.
And the food?. It’s a wow, if you’re adventurous enough to try the restaurants around. I learned how to use chopsticks to even doing it back home continuously for two months. Shopping here is always a moment of excitement. Hongkong is really a paradise for shoppers, you sure will end up over your baggage allowance on your flight back home.
Ngong Ping 360 is destined to be one of Hongkong’s ‘must see’ attractions in Lantau Island. Preserving the natural ecological environment and features of thee Ngong Ping area and converging the custom and culture of the Lantau Island. Ngung Ping 360 is sure to refresh your body and enlighten your mind, as soon as you step on the Cable Car. It is a 5.7 cable car journey is truly visually spectacular ride. It is a naturally ventilated cabin where you can really feel the comfort with a panoramic view of Tung Chuy Bay, Ngung Ping Plateau, South China Sea. As well as the Big Buddha and the flora and fauna at Lantau North Country Park.
The world’s tallest, outdoor, seated bronze Buddha sits serenely atop Ngong Ping plateau amid the spectacular mountain scenery of Lantau Island. The eyes, lips, incline of the head and even the right hand (raised to deliver a blessing to all), combine to lend great depth of character and dignity to this extraordinary statue.

Hongkong Ocean Park, where I had awesome moments. It’s a huge place covering about 91.5 hectares. It is a marine mammal park, oceanarium, animal theme park and amusement park in one. It seems like an endless fun experience of the cool rides, giant panda show, oceanarium and immersion with the locals here.
Beyond all the wonderful experiences here is an admiration, I felt the accommodating spirit of HK. Pinoys are everywhere especially on weekends at parks.
HK adventure is truly a star.
