I have to mention “Biyahe ni Drew” again because we learned this place from one of his Hong Kong episodes. This place completed our list of things to do to have a laid-back vacation in Hong Kong.  The island is small but definitely has a lot of exciting things to offer. As a matter of fact, I don’t know where to start! For us, going to Cheung Chau Island is a breeze. Well… the only challenge is the long walking to get to the Central terminal in a…

It was also our first destination abroad. We…

When I was a child, I’ve always wanted to see Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Mickey Mouse for real. I grew up watching and fantasizing that one day, I could meet them personally. And so came our first out of the country trip, of course in HongKong. HongKong is so far, our favorite Asian destination. We’ve been there three times already and the first time was in 2009. To see Disneyland is the one thing that made us decide to visit Hongkong than other neighboring countries. It was a dream come true! I’m so blessed to finally step on…
