Friday 28th March
Almost a month later, I’ve finally gotten round to writing this bad-boy!
This post marks the last full day that I spent playing Em and Harry’s tour-guide. As Harry was feeling better, we decided to take on the Dragon’s Back!
The name ‘Dragon’s Back’ derives from the fact that the landscape resembles the peaks and troughs of a dragon’s back…though we couldn’t really see much that day.
Nevertheless the fog made our journey feel rather mystical!
As we reached the top, the stunning, panoramic sea-views of Shek O, Tai Long Wan and Tung Lung Island were rather hidden in the fog!
So I’m afraid you’re just going to have to make do with photos of us instead…
Em and Harry also decided to top up their cool-points.
This is my personal favourite.
After checking out the sun-worn panoramic photo of what the views should have been, we decided to head back down.
A minivan heading over to Big Wave Bay Beach arrived just as we reached the bottom, so we excitedly hopped on!
Again, the weather doesn’t do this gorgeous beach justice, but we still made the most of it!
Em whacking out a classic Asian pose 😉
Harry doing an impressive cartwheel in the sea!
What shall we do now?
I’m a bird!
All that fun in the water got a bit too much for us, so we decided to write a message in the sand…
After lazing around the beach for a while, it was time to get dolled up to meet Jess in a fancy cocktail bar!
Getting back into the city, we met Jess in Wan Chai, where she lead us to the Hopewell Centre and we were whisked up to the 62nd floor.
View 62 is Hong Kong’s only revolving restaurant offering views of the glittering skyscrapers over Victoria Harbour, The Peak and the Happy Valley Racecourse. Again, the fog wasn’t being very cooperative that day, but the views were still pretty awesome!
Everyone made the most of the amazing two-for-one cocktail deal!
I’m not a massive fan of alcohol though, so I went for the Frozen Sour; a lush, citrus-based slushy mocktail 🙂
View 62 also serves fancy Michelin-star food, so it’d be a great place to go for a special occasion too!

Over their last two nights in HK, I met the girls after work and we watched Four Weddings and a Funeral at a rooftop cinema in Central. This was the first time that I’d seen the film (I know, shock-horror) and I absolutely loved it!
Although we didn’t get the epic skyscraper views due to the thunderstorm, feeling all snug in the cosy bar while it was pissing it down outside was still rad! 😀 (sorry I didn’t get any photos – I was too busy gorging myself on the free chicken-salt popcorn and Hugh Grant…)
On the last night, we popped over to the eccentric Mr Wong’s for a Chinese buffet!
Finally, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Em and Harry for brightening up mine and Jess’s month! ❤
