The Hong Kong Zoological & Botanical Gardens

Posted on March 9, 2013 by Toothpicker

 
As much as I love living in London, the grey winter months are just too depressing, perhaps it's due to lack of sun, but I was determined to find a way out this year... When I told my UK friends that I was going to travel and work in Asia for [...]

West Kowloon Bamboo Theatre

Posted on March 3, 2013 by Toothpicker

 
I only found out about the West Kowloon Bamboo Theatre when it was about to wrap up, so I dragged my local graphic design friend ( who didn't even know about this) to visit the site on its last day.

Damp days in Hong Kong

Posted on May 22, 2012 by Toothpicker

I rarely travel to Asia in spring and as I discovered, it probably wasn't not the best time of year to visit... While Thailand was extremely hot, Hong Kong was mostly wet, grey, hot and humid.
