Travel theme: Misty

Last month (Mar-2014), my friends and I went to Hong Kong. It was the 2nd time I’ve been there. My first time was in 2003 which I was really impressed with everything in Hong Kong especially food. At that time, I felt like food was very delicious no matter where I ate it; in restaurants or on streets. However, I was a bit disappointed at food in Hong Kong on this 2nd trip. I’m not sure whether I chose the wrong restaurants or not. But food didn’t have the taste that my friends and I expected. I admitted that I set high expectation for good taste because of my first experience there. I hope that I will find the right ones next time if I have a chance to go there again.

Apart from food, I did have a great time in Hong Kong as we visited Hong Kong Disneyland where I was happy with a lot of rides and attractions. Another thing that I enjoyed being on was Ngong Ping 360. It was a cable car taking us to Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau island. I was pleased with the ride even though there were fogs along the way from the beginning point to the island.

The Buddha was that far away point.

We had to walk and climb up the stairs for the Buddha after arriving at the Lantau island.

The misty weather still accompanied us back to the beginning point.

I loved that they let one group take a cable car back so there were only us in the car back to the starting point. And as we paid for a crystal cable car which we have the clear glass for the floor. We could do everything in the cable car since we only had ourselves. I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to snap the photo of myself with the crystal clear glassed floor.

The overcast sky

About a week ago, I went on a trip to Hong Kong with my friends. It was my 2nd time to be there. The weather during our trip was not on our side. We met cold wind on the day we visited Hong Kong Disneyland. The shower rains were our companion on the next day that we went shopping and saw Symphony of lights. We expected the coldest on the last day but it seemed not that cold. However, the sky was overcast. So when we went on a tram to the Victoria peak, we knew what we would see or not see. Surely, not the bright blue sky.

And because of the cloudy sky, I believe that this picture (captured by iPhone 5s) was suitable to apply Monochrome effect to it. I first chose HDR filter for it and then paint the B&W filter. Both filters were in Camera 360. Phonto was still my choice for blog credit and I also applied its Black & White effect to the picture.
