Grace’s 2nd Birthday Party

Today was Grace’s 2nd Birthday Party. We had a small gathering over at our house and the kids came in their Halloween costumes. Grace was a Ladybug (or a Ladybird if you’re British) for the 2nd year in a row. Here are a couple of pics from today. Click the link below to see some more pictures of the celebration.

Lan Kwai Fong Carnival

Today we went to the Lan Kwai Fong Carnival Streetfest. It was pretty cool. They had street dedicated to children’s games and toys. The rest of the festival was dedicated to the Hong Kong national pastime… drinking. Here’s some pics from today. If you ever wondered what Grace will look like in 20 years… here it is.




Went to see a Man about a Horse

We went to Ap Lei Chau to look for some furniture and gifts for Grace’s birthday coming up. We went to this store and they had some kinda cool rocking horses that we had seen back in June. Below is a picture of Grace on the same horse in June and then again today. I don’t know why these horses aren’t selling…

Gettin’ off this Rock

On Saturday, we had the itch to get off of Hong Kong Island and go see something new. We ended up catching a boat over to Discovery Bay on Lantau Island. It was pretty nice there. We had a nice lunch and found a party store where we bought a bunch of stuff for Grace’s 2nd birthday party coming up. Here is a picture of a little playground we found on the beach in Disco Bay. The beach was deserted. I guess it is still too hot in October.


Dragon Hole

I caught the bus coming home from my haircut and today I decided to sit on the upper deck of the bus. I took this picture coming around the corner to our Apartment complex. That’s our building on left. It looks pretty huge from this view.

The building on the right has a hole in the middle and theory has it that it is there for good feung shui… so that the dragon can fly from the mountain to the sea. But I also read that that myth is not true. The designer of this building actually had just come back from Miami and had seen something like this.
