20 April 2013 Cloudy with sunny periods 26 degree Celsisus. Basically it's Shek Pik Country Trail from Ngong Ping near Widsom Path to Tong Fuk Catchwater.

Do remember to bring mosquitoes repellent.

We therefore went down to Pok Hong in Shatin. B&W photos are more suitable for the light condition.
