Save The Human, Save The Earth

Save the human, save the earth. – I have always believed in this quote. Human beings are the destroyer of the earth. It’s only when we save ourself, then only the earth can be saved. It’s cause and effect.

Why must we save ourself?
Because we are the reason the earth is sick.

Why must we care whether the earth is sick or not?
Because it will all come back to us! It’s already happening.

So, how do we save ourself?
By realizing what we have done to the environment, hence we change our attitude and lifestyle.

It’s as simple as that.

Hong Kong Day 4 & 5: Crossing Victoria Harbor, Happy Valley Racecourse & Goodbye

Hong Kong Day 1: HKIA, First Airbnb & Duk Ling
Hong Kong Day 2: Victoria Peak Garden, Shopping & Sai Ying Pun
Hong Kong Day 3: Prizemart, Liu Ma Kee, Shanghai Street & Best Mart 360

Beware: a very long post!

Woke up at 7am+ on day 4. After dilly-dally, we went out at 10am+ for brunch at a dai pai dong in Tai Hang, Hong Kong Island.

To get to Tai Hang, we need to cross Victoria Harbor either by MTR or ferry (of course you can cross by car, bus or taxi too). Taking the MTR will save time. However we prefer taking the Star Ferry because it’s always an exceptional experience. I’ve rode the ferry before in 2011 that was going to Central. This time, we’re going to Wan Chai area via the Wan Chai ferry route.

Hong Kong Day 3: Prizemart, Liu Ma Kee, Shanghai Street & Best Mart 360

My 2018 Hong Kong travelogue so far:
Hong Kong Day 1: HKIA, First Airbnb & Duk Ling
Hong Kong Day 2: Victoria Peak Garden, Shopping & Sai Ying Pun

Woke up at 7am+ and went out around 9.30am on day 3. We had our breakfast at Australia Dairy Company. I wanted to try the food here for the longest time. Although it is mission accomplished in this visit, I most probably won’t be returning. Click the link to read about it. Very fascinating I tell ya.

After breakfast, we went to the nearby Prizemart. We discovered Prizemart while queening for Kam’s Roast Duck the previous day and decided to drop by one of the nearby branches the next day. So here we are. I went nuts with chocolate because it was so cheap.

Eco-Friendly Bamboo Toothbrush & Dental Floss

I need to change my toothbrush recently as it’s very dirty and the bristle is quite frizzy already. I also need to get a new dental floss as I’ve emptied the current one. I never realized the impact of toothbrush and dental floss on our environment until recently. Wow, both are plastic?! Gosh, I’m so blind… but not anymore.

To lessen the burden of our earth and for my well-being, I bought a bamboo toothbrush and a natural dental floss. Both are biodegradable. Yay! Once done, I can compost them.

Hong Kong Day 2: Victoria Peak Garden, Shopping & Sai Ying Pun

Check out Hong Kong Day 1: HKIA, First Airbnb & Duk Ling if you haven’t.

Woke up around 7am plus on day 2. Had cheese bread bought from the previous day for brekkie. By the time we’re ready to rock, it’s nearly 9am.

By the way, we checked the weather forecast and noted that there will be rain on Tuesday onward (day 3). We planned for an outdoor activity on day 3, and because of the forecast rain, we changed it to day 2 which is today.

We took MTR to Central station, and from there walked to The Peak Tram Lower Terminus at Garden Road. Yup, we’re visiting Victoria Peak aka The Peak again (my second time) but this time we’re doing something different. We’re visiting Victoria Peak Garden. I bet most of you haven’t heard about this place before.

Bank Of China Tower @ Central, Hong Kong
If you’d watched HK TVB dramas from a long time ago, I’m sure you’re able to recognize this building which regularly appears in TVB dramas. This is Bank of China Tower. We passed by it on the way to The Peak Tram Lower Terminus.
