My perfect day...
One morning, I wake up and I remember something. Today is the day that I have been waiting for ages. It is my ‘perfect day’! I can do anything I want to do! Let me start my trip now.

I always feel that the morning is like springtime. Spring is the best time to go to Kadoorie Farm (Lm Kam Rd, Tai Po, 2483 7200; kfbg.org.hk). Camellia and Hibiscus blossoms look like they are waking up. Turtles and snakes that have hibernated wake up. I especially enjoy hearing the roosters and birds calling for the sun to rise. Nature is beautiful.

Noon is as hot as summer. The best thing to do in the summer is to cool ourselves down on ice. We can skate and play hockey at the ice rink. You can skate as fast as a rocket without sweating. You can also do some special movements that you can’t do on land.

It is as windy as fall now. What time is it? It is already 3pm. I should go to Tai Au Mun to fly kites. It will be very fun. I went there before to fly kites and the kites nearly flew out of sight!

When evening comes, fall turns into winter. I should go home and eat hot pot with my family. It will be fun to let my glasses be blanketed with steam and to pick fish balls and sausages out of the hot pot myself. How fun it is today! I hope every day can be my ‘perfect day’!

I recommend going to visit the Fisherfolks Village (Sok Kwu Wan First St, Sok Kwu Wan, 2982 8585; fisherfolks.com.hk). It is on a platform floating near Lamma Island. You can go fishing, eat seafood, visit an old fishing boat and learn the way of life of a fisherman. If you catch a fish using a hookless rod, you can bring it home for free.

My perfect day would start by having a relaxing outdoor breakfast at Delifrance (various locations inc Shop 6, The Peak Galleria, 118 Peak Rd, The Peak, 2873 3893; delifrance.com.hk), with their mouth-watering croissants. Then I’d do some exercise by strolling around The Peak, admiring its fabulous views. Afterwards, I’d go to Pacific Coffee Company (various locations inc unit G10, The Peak Tower, 128 Peak Rd, 2849 6608; pacificcoffee.com) for a refreshing drink. For lunch, I’d go to my favourite pizza place, at Piccolo Pizzeria and Bar (various locations inc 1E, Davis St, Kennedy Town, 2824 3000; facebook.com/piccolokt), where the pizza is thin, crispy and baked to perfection. In the afternoon, I’d check into the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel (hongkongdisneyland.com; 3550 3369). My perfect day would be incomplete without having an international buffet dinner at Chef Mickey’s (Hong Kong Disneyland, Lantau Island, 3510 5000) where you’ll have a chance to meet a Disney character or Chef Mickey himself.

Dream Come True Education Park (1 Sky Plaza Rd, Lantau, 3559 1028; dreamcometrue.com.hk), is located at HK International Airport Terminal Two. You can try out different jobs in related uniforms from astronauts, chefs, movie stars, fire-fighters to surgeons… and discover your dream career! At the end, like a real job, you will earn your salary which can be exchanged for snacks or drinks. It’s real fun. Try it out!

My perfect day would start with a dim sum brunch at Maxim’s Palace (2/F, City Hall Low Block, Central, 2521 1303; maxims.com.hk). It is traditional and has ladies pushing carts up to your tables. The food is delicious! After brunch, I would take the Star Ferry across the harbour to Tsim Sha Tsui and go to one of the many museums. I love the Space Museum (10 Salisbury Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui, 2721 0226; hk.space.museum). There is an amazing omnimax cinema, realistic moon walking and spaceship G-force simulations. Take the ferry back and have afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel (5 Connaught Rd, Central, 2522 0111; mandarinoriental.com). There you can have traditional English-style afternoon tea with both sweet and savoury treats served on pretty, multi-layered trays. After tea, I’d go to the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens (Albany Road, Central, 2530 0154; lcsd.gov.hk) and Hong Kong Park (19 Cotton Tree Dr, Central, 2521 5041; lcsd.gov.hk). There are cute lemurs just like in Madagascar. For dinner, my absolute favourite is Ding Tai Fung (various locations inc G/F, 68 Yee Wo St, Causeway Bay, 3160 8998; dintaifung.com.hk) for the most delicious xiao long bao ever!

I recommend Anastassia’s Art House (various locations inc Shop 208, 2/F, Stanley Plaza, Stanley, 2104 3303; arthouse-hk.com). You can take classes or just drop in on weekends. You learn to paint in different styles and paint on a real canvas like an artist. There are also drawing and sculpting classes. One of the best things is that the art almost always comes out looking real! At Anastassia’s Art House you learn to work with all kinds of materials, from oil paint and acrylic paint to markers and pens. You will copy from other paintings, photos or sometimes from things around you.

My perfect ‘day’ in Hong Kong would actually be if I could stay two days and a night at Hong Kong Disneyland (3550 3369; hongkongdisneyland.com) so I can visit plenty of superb attractions and really have lots of fun! It would be even better if it was my birthday because it wouldn’t just be with my family. I‘d be with my family and all my friends! I guess that would be really cool. I think you’d like it because they definitely have attractions that are suitable for all ages. What’s more, they’ve got great food!

Estelle recommends...
Fun Zone (various locations inc Shop 121, The Westwood, 8 Belcher’s St, Kennedy Town, 2258 9558; funzone.com.hk) is an awesome indoor playroom where you can have lots of fun. They have slides, equipment and ball air guns.

My perfect day would start with me waking up at around 10am. Then I’d have a nice big breakfast – pancakes and maple syrup. After getting ready, I would head out to a bright, beautiful day that is neither too hot nor too cold. Then I would take a minibus to the Ladies’ Market (Tung Choi St, Mong Kok) and spend a good two hours there eating and shopping! Once I’d thoroughly gone through every shop and eaten all food I can eat, I’d then take the MTR back home. After I got home I’d have dinner and ice-cream (cookies and cream of course) for dessert. Finally, I’d lie down with a good book and then go to sleep.

One place I recommend to go to and see is the Shek Kong Airfield (Shek Kong, 2713 5171 aviationclub.hk). It is an airfield where military aircrafts are stationed and kept. There are many aircraft there such as a Wessland Wessex (helicopter), de Havilland Hornet (fighter) and many more. On weekends, private planes are flown by club members. It is an amazing sight to see the planes with propellers on them and the way they fly so smoothly. You can also take flying lessons there. If you are a part of the Hong Kong Aviation Club you are allowed to fly planes there on Saturdays and Sundays. It’s awesome!
