Serene Walk in Ngong Ping and Tian Tan Buddha

Hong Kong has been one of the favorite destination for families and young professionals around the globe. No wonder the city is blessed by both natural and man made wonders to be adored by people who wants to enjoy life with their families, friends or by themselves.

One of the most famous attraction in Hong Kong is the Tian Tan Buddha located Lantau Island. Tian Tan Budah is one of the largest statues in China. Near the Tian tan Buddha is the Po Lin Monastery. But before any tourist in Hong Kong see the Tian Tan Buddha and then Po Lin Monastery, they have to pass the manicured Ngong Ping Village and the Ngong Ping Piazza. But before anything else, one must experience the Ngong Ping 360 – a 25 minute cable car ride that starts in Tung Chung, passes to the mountains and forest of Lantau island up to the Ngong Ping Village and Tian Tan Buddha.

SocialClimber: Buntot Palos Falls

Buntot Palos is a hidden falls found in Pangil, Laguna. No wonder its also called Hidden Falls. Buntot Palos is found in the Sierra Madre Mountain ranges in the part of Laguna and Rizal. I asked our guide why the falls is called Buntot Palos and according to him there are many Palos (a kind of fish) found in the area. According to our guide, kuya Sonny, there are still Palos in the area but you can see them during the night only.

Social Climber: Mt. Hapunang Banoi

Mt. Hapunang Banoi is one of the newest mountain in Montalban, Rizal that was opened to the public for leisurely hiking and exploration. According to Pinoy Mounteneer who is the ultimate guide for mountaineering, Mt. Hapunang Banoi has a 4/5 level of difficulty. True enough, the mountain is difficult to climb for a non-pro like me but very fulfilling for every nature lover. Be sure to bring gloves as the trail is both muddy and rocky with sharp edges.

The mountain is called Hapunang Banoi because it used to be a resting place for many "Banoi" which means eagle. At the summit, we actually saw one eagle flying freely. I forgot to capture it because I was so amaze seeing an eagle freely flying. There are some things that is better not captured by your lens, I thought after.

Hong Kong Disneyland: The Happiest Place on Earth

by: Lana Margaret Caronongan

China, Tokyo, Hongkong? What do these three countries have in common? Hint: They all call it: “The happiest place on earth”.

When I was a child, I used to watch Disney films. I, being Aurora, and my two sisters as Belle and Arielle. It was so colourful and full of fantasy. Growing up, it was always our dream to be part and experience the world of Disney, to meet and talk to them or even just to see their majestic castles & Disney gowns up-close. So when The Walt Disney Company decided to have an amusement park which we can meet our favourite characters, I felt excited and somehow ask myself, when and how I will get there.
