B71 #54: Chiu Ying cooking his own meals (reproduced from Post #48)

Chiu Ying writes:

I spent three weeks in Geneva in May attending the once-in-4-years Congress of the World Meteorological Organization, as the "Permanent Representative" of Hong Kong, China. We hold a seat in this organization, separate from China mainland.

B71 #53: Hiking on July 29, 2007

Here is a hiking route proposed by Choi Ho Pang for July 29, 2007.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Hiking Route:
From 榕樹澳(Yung Shue O) to 海下(Hoi Ha).

It’s about 3.5 to 4 hours of walk, partly along seashore and partly into the hills.

As this is in the Sai Kung area, the scenery and vegetations are beautiful.

We start in the morning assembling at the Shatin train station, take the 299 bus to Yung Shue O (30 minutes) then start walking. From Hoi Ha, we take the bus back to Sai kung, lunch there and disperse.

Time & Place of Assembly:
8:00 am at Shatin Train Station Bus 299 Terminus
