Menus at Hong Kong Disneyland

Vegetarian Dining at Hong Kong Disneyland

As a vegetarian, you won’t go hungry at Hong Kong Disneyland. I believe there is at least one vegetarian option on every menu – and its interesting food, not just a token veggie burger.

The dogs of Ngong Ping Village (Lantau Island – Hong Kong)

I will have a post up in the next few days about the Cable Car and Ngong Ping Village but I couldn’t resist photographing some of the dogs there. Signs clearly said “no dogs” but these obviously can’t read 🙂

Push the talking Trash can is alive and well at Hong Kong Disneyland

Environmentality at Hong Kong Disneyland
