Went to Tasik Kenyir fishing with my brother and friends last weekend. Tasik Kenyir is the fishing haven for ardent anglers in Malaysia. Look up its offical website here . Not a very fruitful trip as far as fishing was concerned this time but we enjoyed every moment of it.

PS: Today I changed the blog title to keep up with life beyond Middle kingdom

Goodbye My Friends

Today is the last day of my working life and in China (Totally 7 years in Wuxi/Shanghai, 2 years in Guangzhou). I will officially retire and back to my beloved hometown Penang tomorrow.

My colleages in Guangzhou organized this grand farewell dinner for me and my wife, of course with unending yamseng .

It has been a great pleasure to work with all of you, and thank you once again my friends for this wonderful send-off. Till we meet again.

Cool Conductor

I was travelling on this rural bus in Guangzhou sitting next to the electric door motor. The motor was fully exposed flunking all safety rules and the lady conductor was resting her foot on it. Hahaha...

Giant Buddha of Hong Kong Lantau Island

To get there first take the underground to Tung Chung station (one stop after Disneyland) and then take bus 23 to The Great Buddha. One day unlimited travelling bus pass on the island is HK$50 during holiday/weekend and HK$25 weekday. The bus ride up and down the island mountain is quite an experience not for the weak hearted. More treacherous than Genting.

After visiting the Buddha, take bus 21 to visit Tai-O village for dried seafood and more sightseeing. From here take bus 11 back to Tung Chung station. Do some last minute shopping and dining at the Citygate Mall next to the station.

How to get there from Guangzhou and cost:
Take express train from GZ East Station to HK Hung Ham station RMB190. (one half hour)
Hung Ham Station to Tsim Tung station HK$7
Walk to Tsim Sa Chui underground station.
Tsim Sa Chui station to Tung Chung HK$17 (underground)
Lantau Island day bus fare HK$50
Return from Tung Chung station to Prince Edward station HK$17 (underground)
Take exit C1 to China Travel Agency, Portland Road.
Take express bus HK-Guangzhou HK$100 (3 hours)
