Showing posts with the label photo of Ma Wan

Today's post is not about property prices on Park Island...

Let's move away, for a moment, from the on-going focus on rising property prices in Hong Kong.
I'm not going to claim credit for this photo. It was sent to me by a Park Island blog reader. But I love the photo, and it captures so well the peaceful feeling you get if you have an apartment facing in this direction on Park Island as the sun sets, perhaps with a beer or a cigar in your hand, sitting on the balcony unwinding a little after a hard day in "the city".

The sun has set over Ma Wan...


A morning hike around Ma Wan

I am usually up around 5.30am, take a quick glance at the US and Europe financial news, and then do a morning hike before getting back to prepare for the Asian markets to open.
These photos are on Ma Wan, on the other side of where Park Island is. Go check it out. Hopefully the Government will not concrete the path over "to make it safer" like that have done on the Peak on Hong Kong island. Having said that, I suspect, eventually, that this land will be developed. Would be great if it just stayed the way it is, but this is HK and any land with views like this tends to get developed evnetually!
This morning, on the way back, I treated myself to a hot chocolate from Pacific Coffee in the Piazza, which is now all decorated and with Christmas songs playing.
