Remember what Bilbo used to say...

" It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

Some basic facts about Rambling Gypsy’s Blog:

ü  You like it, great! You don’t like it, Oh well & move on.

ü  It is what it is and that is it.

ü  I like adjectives, but my description of places are not going to be colorfully filled with them.

ü  Yes, I ramble, like most people who travel a lot. 

ü  I like to Guide people more then tell them what to do.

ü  I believe most people know what they want, they just need a little help in what Direction to head (myself included)

Our First trip to Ocean Park!!!

Our First trip to Ocean park!!!
We had a great time and it is a must place to visit. If you are going to live in  HK. I diffently recommend   getting one of the various  Annual passes.


Pacific Coffee Company (PCC), this is Starbucks (SB) rival in HK. I have not decided which one I like the most. I have noticed PCC is far more convenient for me to get too…and I love their Hazelnut latte! I can get my coffee, work the timing of the traffic lights and trot down to the beach.

You can check out this website to find more information:
