Geeking out at Hong Kong Ani-Com-Games Con 2014

There were more than just Transformers at the ACGHK so I thought it only fair to post about everything else we saw at the Ani-Com as well.  For a geek mum like me this was anime and superhero heaven. Loads of franchises I know and even more I don’t! I found it curious that many of … Continue reading

Hong Kong Ani-Com-Games Con 2014 … and let there be JETFIRE!

Geek mum that I am I’ve never been brave enough to venture to the annual Ani-Com-Games Convention (Ani-Com as I call it) also known locally as the ACGHK. Crowds snake for hours waiting to get into the event for the opportunity to pick up rare figurines and other uniquely interesting knick-knacks and I’ve always dreaded the … Continue reading

Planes Fire & Rescue @ Hong Kong Disneyland

Hidden in an obscure little area of Hong Kong Disneyland between Adventureland and Grizzly Gulch is a small, simplistic but fun little display for the new Disney movie Planes Fire & Rescue (coming out in Hong Kong sometime in August). On display are Dusty Crophopper, the hero of the original Planes movie and Blade Ranger … Continue reading

It’s a Typhoon and I’ll SPLASH if I Want To!

Typhoon season has finally hit Hong Kong and I’m probably one of the few crazy people here who gets excited by the prospect of one of these storms blowing in close. Rammasun was our first close typhoon, although not quite close enough to shut the city down. Out and about, a deluge of rain bucketed … Continue reading

Dreamworks @ Paradise Garden, Holiday Inn, Macau

After our atrocious Shrekfast experience we ended up (at the suggestion of the Shrekfest MC) at Paradise Garden, inside the Holiday Inn, part of the Sands Casino Complex on Cotai Strip in Macau. We arrived at the garden in an attempt to get a photo of Mitchell with a Madagascar penguin. If we had known this … Continue reading

Shrekfest – What a Troll!

Over in Macau there are so many different things for the kids to enjoy. Hong Kong has Disneyland and the Disney characters. The Sands group of hotels (Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Conrad) on Cotai Strip in Macau has the Dreamworks characters. We thought the best way to see the characters was by taking our kids to a … Continue reading

Buzzing around Telford Plaza, Hong Kong

Tis the season for Transformers posts… Hong Kong seems to be embracing the new Transformers movie with a vengeance. Even I am surprised at what we are finding in our travels. While over in Kowloon Bay we encountered a Transformers display at Telford Plaza 2. My apologies in advance for the quality of the photos. … Continue reading
