One of the MUST-DO items on our list was to sail the harbour in style on a junk boat. This week we enjoyed a cruise with unparalleled views of the city’s skyline aboard the Aqua Luna, one of the last handcrafted traditional Chinese junks in Hong Kong.

Last night we spent a fun evening with our friends the Rode-Christoffersens. Following dinner we engaged in some Minute-to-Win-It family challenges. Jemilla directed the events and organised all the necessary props for the games.
The dads competed in "The Mega Bubble Challenge", blowing a bubble all the way around our living room and across the line.
"Suck it Up" between the mums, required the use of a straw to transfer M&Ms from one bowl to another.
Tirzah and Natasha tried to keep a balloon in the air for sixty seconds in "Defying Gravity".
Jemilla and Sophie played "Face the Cookie", trying to move an oreo from their forehead to their mouth using only their facial muscles.
This challenge was called "Coin Bounce" between Keegan and Jakob
In the final challenge called "Hanky Panky", Keegan and Sophie used two hands to remove all the tissues one at a time from two tissue boxes.
Sophie accepted the winner's cup and certificate on behalf of the Rode-Christoffersens.
The games were a fun way to say farewell to this lovely family. Thank you, Jemilla, for putting in all the work to make the event a success!
