July is still the BEST time to capture Hong Kong

Two years ago, in the post Discover Hong Kong's Best Sides in July, we posted pictures of Hong Kong taken in July 2009. Three years has passed by in the blink of an eye, our "theory" is still true!

This year, after almost two weeks of rain that started mid-June; tropical cyclones Talim and Doksuri (i.e. typhoons), the sky of Hong Kong has been as clear as ever!

Traditional Chinese Medicine with a Modern Spin

It is certainly not nice to be ill. It would be even worst if this happens when travelling. On the bright side tho, if you happen to be sick in Hong Kong, it may be an opportunity to try alternative medicine: Modern Chinese Medicine.

Chinese medicine has been around for hundreds and thousands of years. While Western medicine focuses on targeting symptoms within a short period of time, Chinese medicine focuses on overall relief using milder measures. Some say that Chinese medicine aims to create harmony within one's body by balancing Yin and Yang. In layman's terms, compared with Western medicine, Chinese medicine will less likely to cause side effects, tho it would take longer to work its magic.
