A ferry ride to Lamma Island

On New Year's Day, my humans and I went took a ferry across to Lamma Island for a BBQ with their friends. Coming from Malaysia where dogs are not allowed at most places, it is lovely to be able to experience things I was never allowed to in Malaysia (plus KL doesn't really have ferry rides).
One of the conditions of entry on board a ferry is that dogs have to be muzzled. I'm not a big fan of the muzzle but since my humans only put in on me when we board and exit the ferry, I put up with it.



Once on board the ferry, we head to the front, where dogs are supposed to sit. The dreaded muzzle comes off and I get to enjoy the ferry ride.
Lamma Island was a traditional fishing village back in the day. Did you know that the actor, Chow Yuen Fatt grew up on Lamma Island (Chow Yuen Fatt played Captain Sao Feng in the Pirates of the Carribean movie, at World's End)? Now, it's a popular spot for Hong Kong'ers and tourists to visit on weekends and enjoy a seafood meal. It was a lovely day and my humans and their friends decided to do some hiking before lighting up the BBQ. We went up a trail that had lovely views of Hong Kong island. On our way back to the village, we bumped into 2 curious Corgis and spent a couple of minutes sniffing each other out. All in all, this was a pretty good new year's day outing!
