Well! I think that this has probably been the coldest snowiest March I have ever known.  At least I spent one week away in Hong Kong, where it was nice and warm.  While I was there I collected almost all my photos for this months Scavenger hunt, so with no futher rambling.....

The GREEN ribbons I bought in "Ribbon Street"

The THREE people that I went to stay with in Hong Kong, my sister, my brother-in-law and my nephew (under the hat!!)

Not sure if this is a traffic warden or police man, but is definitely a PERSON IN UNIFORM

At the Big Buhdda they sold bubble toys and here are some BUBBLES blowing in the wind

Two pairs of SHOES in the Chanel Shop at Hong Kong airport

This is my baby nephews TOY basket, I popped "Original Bunny" at the front as this is his very favourite thing. 

At the Peak, a very ornate GATE topped off with lots of barbed wire!

We went out for lunch and had Dim Sum, one choice was 1000 year old EGGS, had to try them, tasted better than they looked.

Forgot to take a photo of the best desert that I had, which was Panacotta with baked peaches!  But here is another DESSERT an apple muffin and mocha.

WATER,  yes I managed a paddle in the sea, but it was a bit chilly, well it is only March!

Two BRIDGES in the distance as we traveled back down the mountian on the cable car from the Big Buhdda, quiet a view of the airport on the left hand side.

this was my tricky one this month, I couldn't find anything while I was away, but have just finished using up a whole tin of this paint to do the Kitchen cupboards and now it is  EMPTY.

That is is for this month!  Thanks to Green Thumb for organising this and I wonder what she has up her sleeve for April?

Great photos!
1000 year old eggs?! I wonder how they know they are that old? Was it a regular item on the menu or a special?

The peak was shrouded in mist when we went so didn't get the view, great photos and I hope you had a good time.

My question exaclty: 1000 year old eggs? A myth for sure!
Anyway, lucky you did your hunt in Hong Kong!!!!!Beautiful photos!

Looks like you had a lovely time. It is hard to be separated by oceans, especially when adorable babies are involved. Hope Britain is treating you well now you are back x

Louise said...

Great photos though I am a little jealous that you got to spend one week in a warm place, hehe!

Hello Lizzy,
Great photos, the 'bubbles' one is really lovely. I feel your holiday heat in the pictures! What a wonderful trip, I am sure you had a good time - always so nice to see family living abroad.

Oh my goodness, you were quite high on that cable car weren't you? The view is beautiful though. Also quite like the look of that apple muffin.
