If attending a birthday party on Hong Kong Island wasn't an exciting enough adventure in itself, yesterday we ended up on a bit of a how-many-different-forms-of-transport-can-we-fit-in-one-day kind of spree. Let me explain...
We left Forest Hill for Tai Po Market Station on the estate shuttle bus (1) around 9 in the morning.
We then took a train (2) from Tai Po Market to Kowloon Tong to Yau Tong to Quarry Bay.
Eleanor, we thought of you when we saw this sign, but I'm sorry to report that this is as close as we came to the 2010 Hong Kong Flower Show.
We then took another tram to Central where we walked to the piers.
You can see some supporters of Earth Hour on the trams we passed.
Tirzah fell asleep.

We walked around the shops for a while, then caught a double-decker #271 bus (5) back to Tai Po.
Last we caught a taxi (6) from the bus stop back to Forest Hill, arriving home around 6:30 pm.
