Thought it will be tough to climb the 268 steps, but we managed to reach the platform quite easily.

感謝您的鼓勵。

在個人時間的管理,我必須重新思考,所以此時無法繼續部落格的經營,敬請見諒。

也許誠如您們所言,會在適當的時刻,再度出發;然而,此刻必須放下。

時間容許之際,依然繼續向您請教和學習的,望您不吝賜教。

謝謝您的厚愛,謝謝!

Despite being to HK for 7 times, I never have the chance to visit the Giant Buddha. Must make it an effort to include this in my next trip. Btw, Desmond so adorable!

Nice photos!

Too bad the crystal cable car was not ready when we visit last time! It would have been cool to ride it, glass bottom is definitely rare in cable car.

Sonia said...

Colin, ya, the crystal cable car was a fun experience, next time you go, must try to take this cable car.
