Hike to the Peak!

hike to the peak!

I've lived here two years and I've never hiked to the Peak. Kinda lame I know since that is essentially my backyard. Literally, from my door, to Central to meet the hiking group (easier to try new places with the official group. That means I don't have to think.) Then the journey up, and an even more interesting journey down.

Has it hit you yet that I live here? I am reminded constantly how lucky I am.

Wong Nai Chung Gap Hike

hangover historical hike with harmonica. WWII pillbox!

On Saturday, Cang and I went on a very easy hike. Easy but rewarding. The trek to the actual hike was more challenging than the trail. Our hike was quiet and we only came across a couple of other people in an open clearing. The rest of the way, we came across WWII remnants, an old Chinese wall, random tables... like we had stumbled upon an ancient abandoned civilization.

Since the trail is very easy, and lined with cool things along the way, I'd like to use the space for some kind of war reenactment. It didn't feel right to wander through there without weapons and pith helmets... you know, just like the colonial days!

As we wandered, Cang read narration for the historical trail, and when we took a break I played us a little song on the harmonica.

Friendship Night has a Little Sis

May I present the food blog.

I could probably go crazy... a blog for music, a blog for books. A blog for fashion. Celebrity gossip. Knits. But I will keep it all here. Once I get Eat Drink Jet in good shape, it'll be a return to Friendship Night.
