Ngong Ping Village: Po Lin Monastery & Tian Tan Buddha


Here I am, sitting in front of my lappie, blogging about my HK trip on Valentine's Eve with Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" forever looping in the background. Can't complain much as Mr. Choo will be on his way flying back to this Bolehland tomorrow.

We revisited Ngong Ping Village this trip in favor of mum and the rest of our family. We somehow managed to explore Po Lin Monastery (宝莲禅寺) which initially known as "The Big Hut" (大茅蓬) and climbed 268 stairs to the Tian Tan Buddha Statue (天坛大佛). The consequence is, I overstretched my leg muscles for climbing too fast and ended up walking like a granny for the following days. You deserved it well, Christina! 真活该=(
