Monday 19th August
After the hustle and bustle of the first day, Sarah and Luke opted for a more chilled-out day.
So I took them to the most relaxing place that I knew of around these neck of the woods, Cheung Chau – a small island 10km South-West of Hong Kong Island.
Unfortunately it was tipping it down when we got there…
…so we bought a couple of umbrellas and ran to the nearest shop, which just so happened to be filled with every colour of the rainbow!
Once the rain had calmed down a little, we had a little wander around the beach.
We had a delicious snack of giant fish-balls! Sarah went for salt and pepper, while I had the curried version.
Food on a stick is always more fun 😉

Some cool sights on our travels…
Luckily the sun had decided to come out at last, so we had a little gander around Pak Tai Temple, one of the oldest temples in Hong Kong.
We stopped off on Seafood Street for an alfresco lunch 🙂
After lunch, we went for a stroll along the harbour, taking a few cheeky snaps on the way!
Sarah and Luke got stopped by a youth group who filmed them saying something in Chinese. They didn’t ask me though! 😦
An edible aquarium, can’t get fresher than that 😉
All that strenuous exercise after lunch called for another little rest…
…while I perfected my paparazzi skills. I’m a pro.
Cheung Chau Island is famous for it’s Mango Mochis – a sticky rice flour paste cake filled to the brim with fresh mango! SO GOOD! Especially for $8, you can’t go wrong! 😀
Also, we bought these bad-ass, glittery, princess, jelly shoes as our Converse were drenched from the earlier downpour! Aren’t they just magical?! (£3 a pair, bargain!)
Waiting for the ferry = photo time! 😉
The gorgeous sunset from the ferry on our way back.
When we returned to Hong Kong, we popped over to Causeway Bay to check out the 5-storey Forever 21 store and ended the day with an excellent Indian dinner. Top notch! 😀
