Our Week in Pictures {March 2013}

Fil's weekend was spent in this cosy cabin at the Midlands Forest Lodge. Overlooking the Midlands Valley , the entire opposite side of the cabin was made of glass - great for waking up to! 
From the beautiful countryside of the Midlands, to the big city lights of Hong Kong - what an absolute contrast are the different worlds Fil and I are living in at the moment! This shot was taken in Mong Kok, Kowloon.
Filipa got to see this impressive sculpture on the Midlands - isn't it a true artistic inspiration? It was unveiled in August 2012 and is such a sight to see. From far away, it just looks like giant iron rods, rising up from the ground, but stand just a few metres in front of it, and the iconic face of former President Nelson Mandela appears.

The Big Buddha is on Lantau Island in Hong Kong, and we went up to see it the other day. The cable car was broken so we had to bus up the mountain, and the weather was very misty - so it wasn't a prime day to see this bronze statue, but I did manage to take at least one cool shot! The Tian Tan Buddha sits 34 metres high and faces north to look over the Chinese people. Learn more about one of Hong Kong's biggest tourist attractions here.
What's a trip through the Meader without a spot of antique hunting? This collection of spoons, forks and knives was a treat to go through!
This is the beautiful view form the top of the mountain that we hiked from Discovery Bay to Mui Wo in Hong Kong. We were blessed with gorgeous weather, and a great lunch afterwards at a South African restaurant here called The Stoep.
