Latest Updates

Well, silly me forgot to bid on my top bid month, and so my standing bid kicked in - Hong Kong and Perth. So now as we approach October, I will have done 5 Hong Kongs in the space of 3 months. And I'm sick of it to be honest. Not really the destination as such, I'd gladly come here again for a holiday, but more so with the flight pattern, how little flexibility you get, you can't really enjoy dinner or the glorious light show of billboards and neon signs because you have to get ready for pick up.

I was the quintessential Dubai trolley dolly - for the first 4 layovers, I did nothing but shop. Sad I know, normally I don't like shopping for clothes and stuff, but Muji and Uniqlo were both within walking distance, and we get neither in Dubai nor Oz.

The 5th layover though, I forced myself to get out and about. Went to Ngong Ping 360, the cable car that takes you to Lantau Island, which is just basically one side of the island with HK's famous outdoor Buddha, and a monastery nearby, with the rest of the island full of souvenir shops and restaurants. Lantau Island is basically what Sentosa Island is to Singapore, except you can't toboggan down a steep hill nor play volleyball on the beach. The views from the cable car were amazing though, and whilst I spent a maximum of 2.5 hours on the island I did get a few decent photos.

Nice views from the cable car

Sufferers of vertigo beware

The monastery. Only vegetarian food allowed to be consumed on the premises, which I found interesting

The almightly buddha, believed to be the largest outdoor buddha in the world

Obligatory tourist shot in cable car with poor Photo-shopping. I want my $88 HKD back dammit.
Meanwhile in other news, my dad is currently in Dubai! So excited, and with Ramadan over as well it should be a blast. I'm a little worried about him getting home as I could only book a waitlist ticket with a full aircraft, but we'll see how things go. I am also on reserve during this period, so no doubt there will be minimal postings on here as I will more likely than not be pulled out for red-eye turnarounds to Amman, Karachi, Bombay, and what not. Thank goodness I also have leave during October.
