In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Day 2: Visiting Shatin:
We agreed going to Shatin was in order since we’ve wanted to teach the kiddo how to ride a bicycle (without training wheels) for way too long. On the way to the waterfront, we were surprised to walk into an absolutely fun area called Snoopy’s World! It was quite special. I’m a huge fan of Peanuts and love anything Snoopy related, so it was quite a treat to visit a park specifically celebrating everything Snoopy!
We then decided to visit the local library, I absolutely loved browsing the English book selections. There were some interesting graphic novels in addition to good novels and picture books. I found a few gems I’ll share in another reading update.
We grabbed food, decent treat at Bene Italian.
Finally, we got back to the waterfront and rented a bicycle. I sat down to read while my husband helped my son figure out how to balance and ride… good exercise for both of them. Great reading time for me!
So ends our day #2 of staycation!
Normally, I share a weekly reflection on life here in Hong Kong. I’m going to do something a little different for the next eight weeks, I’m going to share our “make lemonade” story. Sure, I’ll probably have other special events within those eight weeks, but I’ve decided that this year, I won’t be as rigid with my Hong Kong reflection posts and if I have an opportunity for quality reflection, I’ll grab it and share!
We planned a family vacation to Malaysia complete with flights, hotels, air b+b’s, and night trains all booked and paid for… then when we headed to the airport, we tried to check in and the airline turned us away… why? Because we needed to have six months or more on our passports and we had five and a half months before renewal. If the airline didn’t turn us away and we flew to Malaysia, we’d be turned away and sent right back to Hong Kong. So… as frustrated as we were, we headed back home and quickly unpacked everything. Then we went out to make the most of the day. Thank goodness my husband and I (and our wonderful son) are able to find solutions… Here are our adventures from
our week in Malaysia our staycation in Hong Kong. We had a fantastic week and enjoyed many different adventures!
