So, my family did the excursion package thing again and we went to the Hello Kitty Organic Farm and Harbin Ice Festival.
First stop – Hello Kitty Go Green Organic Farm.
Check out the landscape here – I’m beginning to think it’s a myth that Hong Kong does not have enough land.
This is usually cited as an explanation for high property prices.
I’m beginning to think: if this is indeed a myth, then who benefits from this?
There’re activities for kids here – they get a map and they’re supposed to get stamps at various stations.
There’re handmade toys for sale.
Plants for sale.

Hello Kitty refreshment corner.
It’s actually a very beautiful and intriguing place if you’re into (street) photography.
You could rent a plot of land here for a few months to tend to your crops.
It’s all very properly laid out, with your name written down so you won’t end up tending to someone else’s plot.
Feed the goat!
Ditto what I said earlier about land in Hong Kong.
Look at my clever composition.
Tiny windmill, tiny scarecrow.
Ah – the pastoral life…
Chrysanthemum tea for sale.
Washing hands after feeding the goats.
My very suave shadow.
Our cheerful excursion guide.
Boredom in the tour coach.
The colours and lines look well-balanced to me.
Nice looking cable tower…
We were in the exhibition hall at Harbin Ice Festival.
It’s minus 10 degrees Celsius in here.
Everything here is carved out of ice.
I paid close attention to the colours.
I’m having a Martin Parr moment.
Bye bye and thanks for stopping by!
All pictures were taken with Canon G11, which you could now call a classic camera.
