HKTR (Hong Kong Trash Removers) clean up Mac 2 and Sharp Peak Hong Kong Trail Runners put on their Samaritan hats to become Hong Kong Trash Removers.

Two (clean) Trails Are Better Than One – Plover Cove & Sharp Peak in one day

Two (clean) Trails Are Better Than One Choosing is a lot easier than you think Do you want a delicious slice of pizza with some extra cheese on it OR do you want a cup of mouth melting ice cream with some extra dark chocolate on it? I know what you’re thinking — do you … Continue reading

Visiting my home on Sharp Peak

I was originally going to simply chill and laze away this rainy day but there is no greater action-inducing driving force than a threat to one of my properties. It’s like the animal kingdom. A hippo, for instance, hates it when another creature encroaches into his territory. He immediately defends what rightfully belongs to him. … Continue reading

Mac 1,2 and Sharp Peak

As part of my penultimate training for next week’s HK100, I was torn between deciding which of my two luxury homes to visit – Plover Cove or Sharp Peak. After much contemplation, I eventually decided on Sharp Peak. It was a cold day. It seemed like even the cows in Pak Tam Chung were exercising … Continue reading

Me, my paper and my Sharp Peak

It was back to old times today. I bought the bulky (and increasingly expensive) South China Morning Post and decided to pay a visit to my mansion on Sharp Peak to read it. I started the run right at Pak Tam Chung as that’s the furthest you can park motorbikes in Sai Kung. I took … Continue reading

Maybe the coffee today morning. (Had coffee after a very long time. Still bad for health). Good to bump into Roz’s … Continue reading

Hiking, 2009-04-05, A cool way up to Sharp peak

Fantastic hike. Photos here. We gathered at Wong Shek pier, took a 14$ boat ride from there to some “Wan”. Walked alongside pipelines for a bit and then on a beach before beginning the climb to Sharp peak. The previous attempt is here. The climb was quite steep at the end and we had to … Continue reading

Hiking, 2008-12-21, Sharp Peak

As usual, went to Sharp peak to read newspapers and magazines. Pics here. Speed was the same – 1 hr 5 mins from Pak Tam Au and 1 hr back from Sharp Peak to Pak Tam Au. Saw a helicopter hovering a few meters above Sharp peak. The co-pilot waved to me as they were … Continue reading

Night Hiking: Sharp Peak

Did a great night hike on 13 Aug 08 from Sai Wan -> Stage 2 -> Sharp Peak -> exit a Pak Tam Au (14 Aug 7AM). Pictures didn’t turn out so well because of mist and a low-quality DC (but hey, it works!) Frugality at its best And so the conversation went like this: … Continue reading
