Ma On Shan

Ma On Shan

🚩 Starting Point: Ma On Shan Barbecue Area
🌄 Difficulty Level: 🌋🌋
🕒 Time: Around 2 hours

Getting there:
We took a cab from Ma On Shan MTR station all the way to the BBQ area and slowly walk our way up. Basically there is a bus that brings you guys up and it cost around HKD 7 but there is a certain timing. We missed the bus and we ended up spending more money on cab. #actonerich

Things to note:
1. Dress Appropriately
I went during winter and everywhere is cooling so I didn't mind hiking. But do note that you do perspire even in winter. So I ended up carrying my cardigan cause it was starting to become warmer as I hike further. 

2. Hike As  A Group
It's important to go as a group and don't be like my cousin and I. After hiking we heard from the news how dangerous it's to hike in such a small group. Robbers could have just target us and get away in such a breeze. Although I will be wary of my surroundings, sometimes it will come unexpected.

3. Drink Up
Bring some small snacks if you tend to get hungry easily. Chances are you won't be finding any shops that sells food or drinks. And even if there is, it will be quite a distance. It's also important to hydrate yourself throughout the hike.

4. Watch Where You're Going
This tip will only be useful for Ma On Shan as this place has the most number of cows (have no idea why). Do keep a look out of where you are heading to. Chances are you will be stepping onto some poops..... and surprisingly, those poops have no smell HAHA. Do not touch or play with the cows as you might not know what the heck they will do to you.

I was luckily enough to watch people paragliding that day and managed to catch some good shots. They are not always there by the way so it really depends. We didn't hike all the way and we made a u-turn after reaching this so called "top". So I am not too sure where it's supposed to end. 

Anyway this place has a really gorgeous view and almost everywhere seems to be good for a photo shoot. There are actually couples coming up here just to take their wedding shots. And apparently people like to come up here for camping too. Heard there is a campsite somewhere but didn't managed to find it. There are some rocky road so it's not exactly a smooth road throughout but it's alright I guess because it's not even scary.

I would definitely want to go back here as this is a good place to bond with your friends/family members while hiking (without feeling extremely tired). Furthermore this place has such a beautiful view that makes all photos looks 10 times better.

Seoul Garden Habourfront Centre

I still remember vividly the last time I went Seoul Garden buffet with my friends and all we had was steamboat with quite a limited range of food. But guess what, the new outlet in Habourfront was better than I imagined. I must say Seoul Garden has really up their game and I really enjoyed the food & experience.
Just look at the amount of food that welcome us!!
With such a wide spread of food, you are definitely spoilt for choice. I had a difficult time trying to figure out what should I eat first because everything looks so good (and fresh too).
Besides serving Korean food, they do serve other cuisines too so don't worry if you are not a huge fan of Korean food. And this is also the reason why I love this outlet because whenever people mentioned 'Korean food', the first thing that comes to my mind will be KBBQ. However, here at Seoul Garden, they did not stop at only the grilled meat but they have hot pot too!
And look, they have this cheese pot for you to dip which is quite a trend right now I supposed. The cheese dip is unique here because they added some kimchi kinda ingredients inside (which explains the red colour) and I must say it taste so much better! You get to choose whether you want to have 2 hotpots or 1 hotpot & 1 cheese dip pot. Of course we have to choose the one with cheese dip. Since all of us can eat spicy, no doubt we ordered tom yum as soup base.

So the next time you are debating with your friends whether to have steamboat or bbq, just get both at Seoul Garden. Thank you once again Seoul Garden & Tiffany for the invitation!

Expressions Detonix-S Treatment

My finals has just ended and guess what did I gained (besides knowledge)?


Can't believed I actually gained weight in such a short period of time. However, it was no surprise. All I did for the past one month was eat > study > sleep and repeat. There wasn't anytime left for me to exercise and the longest route I walked was probably from my room to kitchen on a daily basis.

Thank God for 
Expressions Detonix-S Treatment.

Detonix is a revolutionary treatment for body contouring regime. It removes toxicity from fat cells and gives you a toned, firm and tight body. The whole process is totally painless and safe (and in fact it's actually very relaxing!)

Before the treatment, the specialist took my measurements and also gave me a brief introduction of the whole treatment. Reality hit me hard at the moment when I see the numbers on the weighting machine HAHA.

How this works is that they will apply patented formula cream, followed by wrapping you with multi-polar thermal blanket to achieve the contour body. So it's important to head to the washroom before this treatment as you don't want to hold your pee for 30-45 mins. It was so comfortable that I actually fell asleep during the whole treatment and only got woken up by my perspire that was dripping on my face lol. The specialist will also pop by once in a while to check on you.

It felt like I was running for 30 mins straight but all I did was lying down for 30 mins HAHA. Honestly 45 mins should be the max because it got so warm after which and the perspiration is kinda gross. I was stuck with them for a good 45 mins. So it was super refreshing to be free from them. 

I thought I sweated a lot but in the end it was only this little....sigh.
The more you perspire the better it is, so this treatment is good for those who will perspire a lot.

And tadah, I actually slim down quite a bit within that 30-45 mins. Amazing. I do feel lighter after the treatment as I got rid of some of the water retention in my body. However, do drink lots of water after the treatment because you will be so thirsty after the treatment!!
Thank you Expressions for allowing me to be back in shape!
