During the Lunar New Year Holidays, most of the shops and restaurants will be closed. Even you can find restaurant that is open for service, it will definitely include a 10% surcharge. Other than visiting relatives or friends, hiking is believed to be the most cost saving activities.

Our weekday hiking routes are normally focused around those short trails in the Hong Kong Island where we can have adequate time to pick up our little boy after school. The Sir Cecil's Ride located in the eastern part of the Hong Kong Island that we hiked recently is one of the great choices.
Last week, I went hiking with my wife and one of my cycling buddies to the Big Wave Bay (大浪灣) along the Leaping Dragon Walk (龍躍徑) located in the eastern corner of the Hong Kong Island.
We started our journey from the Siu Sai Wan Promenade in Chaiwan, which is right next to the entrance of the Leaping Dragon Walk.

All of a sudden, an idea came to my mind - I could do this as well, of course, just in Hong Kong …
兩年前的今天，我又作出另一個挑戰 - 單日徒步環香港島。
The weather was slightly warmer in last week which was suitable for outdoor activities. By the time my boy has finished his homework, it was already close to noon and we might not have time to places farther away In that case, we decided to have a short trip in one of the outlying islands nearby - the Lamma Island …
