Hong Kong is a food paradise, and there are plenty of eateries and restaurants to explore. Besides the local street food and eateries, there are also famous, and expensive, Michelin-starred restaurants scattered all over the city. Thankfully, one Michelin-starred eatery kept its price affordable for the masses. This famous roasted goose eatery can be found in Hong Kong island, and is one of the places we headed to for a meal. Dim sum is a must for breakfast, while there are lots of delicious snacks to enjoy, including their egg tarts.
Of course, they also have the famous milk tea, which comes unsweetened. Thanks to the younger generation, many modern sweetened milk tea stores popped up all over the city, and those with a sweet tooth will surely find themselves satisfied. You might realise that the word 'famous' is used a lot in this paragraph, and that is expected since Hong Kong truly has lots of famous delicious food. Check out the food places we headed to when we travelled to Hong Kong!

Hong Kong, one of Asia's busiest cities, is a really busy place. Even as a tourist, one can feel the fast pace at which the city operates in. That is perhaps why there are so many attractions for people to head to, where tourists are expected to head to numerous places to maximise their time in Hong Kong.
Besides visiting the main tourist highlights Hong Kong offers, you should also try to explore the city from a local's perspective. Try taking the star ferry after seeing Hong Kong from above at Victoria Peak. You should also look out for the Noonday Gun, a less-known attraction, where a canon blasts off once everyday at 12pm without fail. Of course, make sure you prepare a lot of cash, where you can go crazy shopping at the many markets in Kowloon. Try the Ladies Market, and head to Sneakers Street to get some of the latest sports-related fashion wear. As long as you can handle the pace, you will be sure to enjoy Hong Kong tremendously!

When I first started planning a trip to Brisbane, my good friend suggested I should head down to Byron Bay. She mentioned that it is such a nice and peaceful place, and is really beautiful too. While everyone knows Gold Coast and its pretty beaches, Byron Bay is essentially the low-profile sister who is in reality the more beautiful of the two. Add all these to the fact that Chris Hemsworth stays there too! Having heard such great things about Byron Bay, I had to head down to discover for myself.
I started the day with brunch at The Croft House, where the bacon and eggs were fantastic. It was a proper breakfast that gave me the energy I required to make the 2-hour drive down to Byron Bay.
