Tue: safe and sound in HKG and taking the A11 bus (HK$40 S$7+) from the airport into town. My Octopus card is till good to last me this trip. When I was first here years ago, used to wonder how people could live like packed like sardines and now it is happening in SIN!

Enjoying a simple bowl of yummy wonton noodles at my familiar joint Kings Cafe. Rosedale Hotel  (3nights S$302) located just a few blocks from where I used to stay when visiting and knowing this area makes life easy to be here, tkx to Henry.

Appreciations for a nightcap at Johnny’s place – got to say hello to LokLok, the best trained and disciplined pet-dog that has crossed my path!

Appreciations to Magne for sharing this link and of course it took me much longer time to hike this 16.29k. We started after 1300hrs and did not get back to the road until 2000hrs and that includes 2 breaks.

Since we were in SaiKung, had to show Magne all the seafood places.
