While at the entrance of the Hong Kong Wetland Park I came across these interesting statues of storks and other birds. I have always love looking at different statues and these really captured my attention.
The statues looked like they were made out of brass and some looked rather weather beaten due to enduring the various weather conditions over the past years.
I spotted this kingfisher on a stone bench. There were some mini crabs on the bench across it. It was a pity that we didn’t manage to spot the real bird or any of these other animals that were portrayed in statues while we were at the park. I guess that it may have been simply too hot and they were in hiding or it wasn’t the right season to spot them.
The weather was scorching hot when were in Hong Kong last month. To keep away from the sun we did a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities with the kids.
Doggie boy and R going on one of the kiddy rides
One of the places which the kids really enjoyed was the arcade. The arcades there were slightly different from the ones that we have been in Singapore. There were a few mini amusement park rides which both parents and kids could go on together.
The kids on the Frog Hopper
In Singapore there were only game machines and no rides available . We can only go on such rides if there was a pasar malam (night market) being put up in the area. Even so I question the safety aspect of such rides which are available for the kids to play at these temporary night markets and will not let the kids go on them.
The boys found the ride not really thrilling as they have experienced more exciting rides at the various theme parks that they visited in Japan, Korea and Thailand. Tiger girl on the other hand was fascinated and really enjoyed herself.
Tiger girl playing bowling with the boys
It was the first time that she was able to play bowling as the had mini bowling lane for kids. The bowling ball was just nice for her hand and she was able to bowl with ease.
The kids and us spent a whole two and a half hours using up the HKD $100 credit that we allocated for them to play.
