A so call "Seasoned IT Professional" who has worked for over 26 years in the Information Technology / Financial industry. One day it came to mind that should I continue to work in a fast lane or take a break.
Without any hesitation, I quit my job and start my new life.
If you like hiking in Hong Kong, there is a place that you must make a visit - Tai Mo Shan.
I've been to Tai Mo Shan a number of times. Cold Winter, cool autumn, hot summer; Sunny day, rainy day; hiking and even cycling. No matter how and when, you will find your ways to enjoy.
This is part 5 of the Hong Kong Cycling Routes series.
Instead of continuing our long distance group ride in the northern New Territories of Hong Kong, we have taken on a rather relaxing coastal ride in the eastern part of the New Territories this time.
Our destination is Sai Sha at the peripheral of the Sai Kung district.
During my stay in Kaohsiung, the Rapid Transit System (RTS) or "高雄都會區大眾捷運系統" is the major means of transportation in the Metro area.

The fourth of the series is "FoTan to the Old Frontier at Lo Wu".
This is an extension of the FoTan to Sheung Shui cycling route. A visit to the old Hong Kong Frontier before the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to China,
Revitalisation of historical buildings as a means of preserving cultural and historical heritage is getting more significant nowadays. By injecting new usages to these buildings, it is expected that its life activities can be sustained.
Our second ride in Kaohsiung has been focused on one of the highly recognised revitalisation projects, the Pier 2 Art Center. We have also boarded the ferry at GuShan to the Cijin District (旗津半島）and have a wonderful sprint along the Cijin Cycling Promenade (旗津踩風大道).
When two people are in love, we will say "they are 沐浴愛河中" in Chinese (ie. bathing in the love river). However, one of the sweet ladies of my cycling team has her own interpretation:
