Weekend Picnic at Inspiration Lake
Finally! We've found a patch of grass we can sit on in Hong Kong! We were so happy it didn't rain yesterday, we had our picnic with Joe, Athena and baby Alice at Inspiration Lake.
The place is beautiful and it's easy to get to. Simply take the MTR to Disney station, and take the R8 bus to the Inspiration Lake recreation area.
We settled ourselves on a clean patch of grass, under the shade of a tree. We brought some simple food...sandwiches, hot dogs, shrimp paste grilled chicken wings, marinated meat and fish balls and Chinese sausages, and fresh melons.
There's a 7-11 there, so actually you don't have to bring any drinks or food. We didn't know that ^_^'
I made roast duck sandwiches...
I used mini croissants, store bought roast duck, slices of fresh pear, and mayonaisse.
The hot dogs had cheese sausages, sliced cucumber, mayo, ketchup and spreadable cheese in them. I used cocktail buns, the inner part buttered and lightly toasted.
I also made apple caramel sandwiches. They're filled with slices of fuji apple, which were lightly salted to prevent them from browning, and slathered with some butter and toffee caramel spread.
The babies enjoyed their own food...and some of our buns...
And it was too hot, we decided to let baby Marcus try some popsicle.
He was shocked by how cold it was...at first.
Soon enough, he grew to love it...
...and kept asking for more.
So much for trying to not let him eat anything unhealthy until he's 10 ^_^'
It was so hot, we were pretty much melted, sun burnt, and bitten my mosquitoes/various insects, but we enjoyed it much, we're gonna go back when the weather is cooler.
The full set of pictures are posted on my Facebook Page. Like it if you haven't already ^_^
