Adventures in Hong Kong: Ocean Park

leave a comment »

Meezy took the day off of work yesterday so we could check out Ocean Park, an amusement park/ aquarium/ one of the few places you can see live pandas , which we have been meaning to get to for a few months now.

As you can see we were really excited to be there….
and before we even got to the zoo area I spotted this crazy looking bug. I mean i guess the picture doesn’t do it justice but up close it looked like something you’ll see in the next Gears of War.
Amazing view from that roller coaster.
Mmmmm, lunch was tasty squid tentacles from the one and only Mr. Squid.
The layout of Ocean Park was so damn confusing, we ended up riding this same 5 minute escalator 3 times.
But in the end at we did get to see some cool pandas so it was all worth it.

You need like 2 whole days to see all of the park, but definitely a good visit if in Hong Kong

Eating Snake in Wan Chai

This is a tad late. But here’s some pics from when we ate snake the other day in Wan Chai.

Snake Snoup. Is that blood?

John goes in again.

uhm?

Yeah so…I said it tasted like Chicken. John Said it tasted like Frog. I don’t know if I’ll ever order snake again; but if it’s already on the table I might dabble in a little.

Adventures in Hong Kong: The Roof

leave a comment »

Yep, the roof! Doesn’t sound too exciting does it? Well guess what! ….. yea it’s really not that exciting… but it is where we ended up last night for some reason.

Well 1st we started at this classy little bar where the bartenders were working on their bottle tossing skills.
THEN we ended up 25 stories above where we live (the PO!) with a bottle of Proseco in hand.
Messing around with shutter speeds n such.
Meez, I’m sorry this is the pic that got blogged, but it just came out the best…. I mean minus your face n all.

Thats all. Just counting down the days until we leave trying not to have one uneventful night.

Stick ‘Em Up: Skillful Dischargin’ 1.0

with one comment


Yep, the Boy Caff sent us some stickers to post around Hong Kong while we’re out here. I Skillfully Discharged the first one by a noodle spot in Sham Shui Po that we head out to a lot.

Photobucket
Photobucket
Why?
Cuz Skillful Discharge is a Philly based brand – and for some reason the beef at the spot tastes like Philly Cheese Steak Beef.

True Story

Stay tuned for pics of sticks in more areas. And hey, if you got a brand and got some stickers, hit us up for our Hong Kong Address.

Passport on Pivot

leave a comment »

I’m heading out to Japan for the next week to see some sights, do some serious shopping, and maybe even try some poisonous puffer fish. Who knows?

So unless I can find an amazing internet cafe, the blogging will be taken over by Meezy for the time being. (I know I know I’m scared too, but there’s just no other choice) But keep checking in, there might even be an update from Japan if possible.
