A Brighter Tomorrow 明天會更好

My family had another hike on Christmas Eve, or to be more exact, morning of Christmas Eve. This looked like kind of strange Christmas celebration, but we can’t help as this is the norm of the year. You can’t go abroad, no group gathering, and probably hiking is a more safe activity. However, my family still have to go in group of two, in order not to violate the social gathering ban and got arrested.

2020 年的平安夜,其實只是早上的日子,和家人去了行山。沒法子,經歷了不一樣的一年,外遊不得,朋友聚會又不可以,戶外行山應該較安全,只是一家人仍要分成二人一組,避免違反限聚令而被捕。

Hiking Route – Tsing Yi Nature Trails 青衣自然徑

I normally went hiking in the Mount Parker country park, which is easily accessible and with sufficient distance as a workout. Hiking in the New Territories seems to be rare to me but I had one with my old classmates in Tsing Yi last month.

平日行山大部分時間都會到柏架山,主要是因爲交通方便又有足夠的路程。相對在新界的路線則較為少去,但在過去的十月尾便與老同學們到遠方的青衣島走了一轉。

Hong Kong Style Egg Tart – My First Attempt

Like a lot of the Hong Kong people, egg-tart is one of my favourite pastries.

Here in Hong Kong, we have two different styles of egg-tarts, one comes with a butter pastry (撻皮) base while the other one comes with puff pastry (酥皮) base.

Personally, I prefer butter pastry base which is more crispy over the puff pastry base.

This week, instead of making bread, I will practise making my first Hong Kong style Egg-tart with butter pastry base.

Hiking around the Hong Kong Island

Round the Hong Kong Island 徒步環香港島

Two years ago, I took another challenge – Walk around the Hong Kong Island in one day.

Shortly after I had completed my round-the-island cycling in Taiwan in late 2015, I felt a little bit desperate and would like to look for another challenge of my life. One day while I was surfing the net, I found a young Taiwan undergraduate who spent over 40 days to walk around Taiwan all by herself. 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。

2015年末,我剛完成第一次的臺灣自行車環島,心情有點失落,很想尋找另一個挑戰自我的目標。有一天在網上看到一位二十多歲的臺灣女大學生,用了四十多天的時間,獨自完成她的徒步環島之旅。心想,臺灣那麼大,香港這麼小;她那麼年輕,我這麼成熟,怎麼可以給小女生比下去呢 …
