Lunch Break Adventures: Hong Kong Park

Hong Kong Park is a pocket of nature hidden among skyscrapers, and one I’m truly grateful for. Newsrooms can be pretty tense and fast-paced, especially when you have to deal with North Korea  and Trump-related stories, among others. I love what I do, but there are days when the brain doesn’t cooperate and I feel like I’m stuck.

I have found the perfect spot to regroup, breathe and take some inspiration from to get me through the rest of the workday. An hour here does wonders to the soul!

Sharing with you some photos from my favorite lunch spot during not-so-hot Hong Kong days. Hope these photos make you want to visit and experience the park yourself.

A great reminder to just keep swimming.
“Bloom where you are planted.”
Dance with the wind, like these flowers that resemble dancers with puffy dresses.
Sitting pretty.
Just keep your head out of the water.
Sunbathing turtles.
I envy these buggers who can swim freely when the noon heat gets unbearable.
This beauty is known as gumamela in the Philippines. Hibiscus, if you were wondering.

Hong Kong Park is located at 19 Cotton Tree Drive, Central, Hong Kong Island. More info can be found on the #DiscoverHongKong website.
