I recently spent a brilliant evening on Radio Melayu chatting about my recent adventures and how we all need to find a way to get packing and escape winter by getting overseas or embracing winter and snuggling into a gorgeous resort down south.
The link below features descriptions for a few of my new favourite things, including Bali’s spectacular new resort the Apurva Kempinski Bali, Hong Kong Star Ferries and markets, Hong Kong Disneyland, Pullman Bunker Bay Resort and amazing airlines for travelling with children, including Malindo Air, Batik Air and Cathay Pacific.
What’s just as important as the destination? The journey of course! How could I resist using the image of Tom and his Cathay Pacific entourage as the featured image for this post?
Tom and I have just returned from Hong Kong where we travelled with Cathay Pacific to Hong Kong Disneyland, stayed at the Disneyland Explorers Lodge and spent a day on Hong Kong Island riding the Star Ferry and trains and visiting tucked away laneway markets filled with toys and communist memorabilia.
Typhoon Tom couldn’t sit still. He watched movies and played games, ate amazing food and endless ice-cream and made new friends. And that was just on the Cathay Pacific flights.
While I get busy writing up our adventures, enjoy a few pics from our time in one of the worlds bucket list countries and bucket list theme parks.
Turn around Tom! Our wheels are about to touch down on Hong Kong!
The Star Ferry is old, slow and completely and utterly gorgeous and cheap.
Pocket watches of all shapes and sizes at Upper Lascar Row (Cat Street) Market. You’ll also find Communist era propaganda posters and lots of Mao Tse Tung statuettes and even copies of his little red book.
