Visit to Fanling & Water Baptism – 1 May 2014

Events Family Life in HK

What better to do on Public Holiday than to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Wanted to bring the kids out of HK since 1st and 6th was public holiday. But thought it would be crowded, so probably the better option is to stay in HK.

Church organized water baptism on 1st May at a farm in Fanling. Hence we decided to join in the fun. Hon also ordered a roast pig to be shared among fellow church goers. Something that we have not done for years.

Kids were all excited as they went there last year. They were telling me there’s goats, rabbits, fishes, tortoises and even cow there.

Church rented mini bus and we gather at Novotel Citygate at 9AM. Left for Fanling, which took us about 1 hour or so to get there. It was darn far. And it passed by the area at University Station that we went on our Geological Tour few weeks ago.

Everyone was excited about the roast pig and couldn’t resist to take photos with it. And of course savoring the roast pig once it was chopped into tiny little pieces by 2 butchers LOL.

Even bones and all the parts were not spared. All the ladies having a gala time dividing the remaining of the roast pig.

Kimchi fried rice with roast pork LOL. Yes we got creative later on.

We also setup the BBQ pit and even heat up the roast pork on it so that the skin stays crunchy and warm.Of course, after all the pig out session, it was finally water baptism time. There were 5-6 kids/teenager and a few adults to be baptist this round.

It was a great day to spend our Labour Day and weather was great as well, although at times it looks gloomy and about to rain.

We finally left Fanling at about 330PM and arrived at Tung Chung close to 5PM.

Serai. There were plenty in the farm and we helped to get rid of it by hoarding all the serai back. According to the ladies, these are expensive stuff in HK.

Kids surrounding the rabbits cage and trying to disturb them.

What’s everyone looking at? Check out the cow’s butt on the left of the pic LOL.

  1. ahh fanling – the countryside of hong kong! these photos would fool anyone into thinking these are random villages somewhere in guangdong/chongqing 🙂

    it’s worth noting that rents in/around the sha tau kok village are the lowest in all of hong kong proper.

    alot of good memories to this place!
