20th Century Fox Theme Park Construction Update 2017

It is now more than 3 years since closing of Resort World Genting's Outdoor Theme Park and announcement to build a new 20th Century Fox Theme Park. The opening date has been pushed back again and again, with the latest announcement last year saying that the park will open in early 2017. However, from what I saw at construction site, I honestly think that 20th Century Fox Theme Park will not open till at least 2018, or at the earliest, November 2017.

Lihpao Land - Home to the Craziest Coaster on Earth

When people think of Lihpao Land, one think comes into mind: the insane looking roller coaster called Gravity Max (地心探救). However, Lihpao Land is so much more than that. In fact, I dare say it is one of the best kids oriented theme parks I have visited. Of course, let us not forget the Taiwanese hospitality, clean park and...a rarity in theme parks..."normal" priced food!

Indoor Rock Climbing @ Camp5 Malaysia

Rock climbing can be both a sport and a tourist activity. Camp5, located at 1 Utama Shopping Center in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia is a popular indoor climbing spot that provides both a good recreational activity for tourists and locals and a comprehensive training ground for the pros. Due to low prices, convenient venue and air-con, it is the preferred overseas rock climbing venue for climbing enthusiasts and interest groups from Singapore.

I have not posted on this blog for a long time, but this climbing trip is special to me because it is the first time I go overseas with friends (without teachers, parents, you know)

This climbing trip to Camp5 is my first overseas trip with friends. Photo credits to Pei Yi.

Analysis of Hong Kong International Airport

Hong Kong International Airport is one of the top 10 busiest airports in the world, and possibly one of the best as well. Actually, this is the second time I am passing through Hong Kong International Airport, with the first time five years ago. The biggest change since then is the opening of Terminal 2. Thankfully, the changes do not include lost in service quality or increase in queue times.

I hope this blog post will help you enjoy the airport better, and maybe even decide where to make your transit!

Ocean Park Hong Kong Trip Report

The last time I visited Ocean Park Hong Kong was in 2010. At that time, a lot of things were under construction and I found the park somewhat lacking. When I came back in December 2015, the park was totally transformed! The landscaping had improved, there were more rides and even toilets could finally come close to USS standards. Honestly, I was not expecting such a dramatic transformation, and I was impressed by what the team at Ocean Park Hong Kong has done.
