Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

a secret garden kinda bbq

with 2 comments

i say this after every summer in hong kong, that was the hottest summer ever and since there is no stopping of global warming – i guess i pretty much will be saying it every year till i die or the world dies – whichever takes precedence first.

i am so glad we are finally heading towards the cooler months.

a few weeks ago, my friends and i decided on an outdoor bbq get-together. the authentic hk style type not the backyard beer -in-hand fancy bbq cooker kind.

we had definitely picked the wrong time of the year to go. it was so hot, we didn’t just bbq food, we bbq-ed ourselves too. but thank god for good company and in the end, everything worked out well.

we ended up at this place call kam hei gardens in sai kung. we would never chanced upon it if it weren’t for a friend of ours whose family is in show business. hidden deep in sai kung near the shing fung film studio. i think this place is also used to shoot movies/ commercials. it also looks as though there are loads of movie props there.

when we got there, we wondered if we had gone over the borders to thailand or something because it was so surreal. nothing like what you thought hong kong would look like.

you know what it reminds me of – the book the secret garden. there were garden swings, fountains, ponds, wooden huts that towards twilight sparkled with fairy lights.

i think it would be a great place if you are are looking for an exotic wedding destination or a place to capture some nice pre-wedding photos.

well the photos speak of a thousand words.

to get there – just get to choi hung mtr station. take a taxi from there and tell them to head towards shing fung film studios. kam hei gardens is just behind the film studios.

to make a reservation – please call 2243 0303
