Discovery Bay is one of the outlying islands in Hong Kong. Simply go to the Central Piers (near IFC), and take the ferry that says “Discovery Bay”. Discovery Bay is one of the places you should go if you have time in Hong Kong. From relaxing by the sea to shopping at The Plaza, to playing golf and tanning by the beach, Discovery Bay is basically a resort! The main mood of transportation is by golf carts and public buses (and they have yachts there).
During one of the weekends, we went to Discovery Bay for the first time with our landlady (Alice) family. They’re like our parents, loving and caring for us. We met them in the piers and took the ferry to Discovery Bay to meet Alice’s friend. She also brought along Teddy and Yung Yung.
This is Teddy, the super adorable pup!
And Yung Yung. He was 7 months old then, and now he can walk and climb around. Man, babies do grow up fast!
Discovery Bay Marina Club
After arriving, we met with Alice’s friend and took the cart to Discovery Bay Marina Club. The guys had to take the bus because the cart doesn’t have enough space.
Yung got tired after a while on the ferry and slept for a while on our (mine and Cheryl’s) shoulders.
This boy was smart enough to wake up for a while to enjoy the cart ride, but when back to sleep again after a while!
Since we both girls looked after the baby, Justin took care of Teddy.
Then we proceeded to have lunch. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed in the Marina Club so Teddy had to stay outside. It was really sad because Teddy really felt like a human and we could sense how sad he felt because he’s left out. Alice stayed with Teddy downstairs for a while while we brought the baby up because he was sleeping again.
We managed to wake him up after a while and fed him some mash potatoes.
This looks like a very happy and cute family. Also, because Cheryl, Justin and I took turns to carry the baby, people starred at us like we were super young parents/lesbian couple and gave us a really weird look. ……….people need to stop judging
I went to find Teddy after that so Alice could eat in peace (people kidnap pets in HK). Teddy was super excited to see someone he knew and he didn’t let me leave so I couldn’t go back after that.
This was the view from the Marina Club. Yachts being docked and palm trees; I feel like in a resort, away from Hong Kong.
Discovery Bay Hike
Yung Yung was tired and so Alice brought Yung to her friend’s house while Stanley and 3 of us brought Teddy for a hike.
Teddy got tired after a while and we carried Teddy to hike. Dog with the best life haha Also, there, we found a cool place with a small stream and met 2 dogs there! The big one was chilling in the water while the small one was busy catching fish (but failed).
The dog looks like a dog from a cartoon! I can’t remember the cartoon name 🙁
After a while, we left and continued hiking up. The hike was easy, because it was just walking on the main road.
And a stunning view, overlooking the island.
The road travelled.
We managed to hike to the reservoir, where we spammed pictures. It was a gorgeous sight! There was a golf course at the peak, but it was getting dark so we took lots of pictures and went back down after.
Stunning sunset that we witnessed. I love how Hong Kong offers a really good balance of city life and natural sites. I feel sad for Singaporeans who do not travel, because they do not realise how different their lives could have been.
After a long day of hikes, we had a scrumptious meal!
German cuisine? We had a ham platter, fries, salad and pork knuckle.
The island was lined up with light decorations.
Look how Teddy looks like an elder brother, ensuring no one harms the little baby.
We took the baby for a walk and explored The Plaza (city centre), while the moon hung at its highest. As DB was in Lantau Island, which is where Disneyland was too, we could see the usual 8pm fireworks from here. Fireworks, full moon and good company. What a great weekend.
And lastly, thank heaven for little boys. We took the ferry back and slept soundly at night because we were so exhausted!
