    tai mo shan is the home of big mist mountain [tai mo shan, 957 m above sea level]. and tai mo shan became one of the maclehose trail's stage. speaking about maclehose trail itself, it's a hundred-kilometre-long hiking route. it's links 7 different country parks and divided into 10 different signposted stages -- each connected with public transport. congrats for my friend trisha [chicago, usa] who already done this trail completely :)
    there's annual charity race event with target of 48 hours trekking at maclehose trail. and the complete stages of this trail as follows:

    there's a long bridge named tsing ma which connecting tsuen wan west area to tsing yi island and lantau island. it's a nice landcape to be seen in the evening before dinner. there's no hectic nor traffic jam around. and tsing ma itself, said as the world's longest rail and road suspension bridge.

    hawker stall cantonese duck (c) ukirsari

    by ukirsari Updated Nov 7, 2006

    many hawker stalls nearby tsuen wan and tsuen wan west local markets offers take-away roasted duck and goose. estimated price: HK$20 per duck, HK$40 per goose.

    Favorite Dish: both roasted goose and duck are delicious. but of course, dine-in in a resto is something more enjoyable since everything already prepared by the chef and waitress. this take-away roasted duck and goose need further preparation: need to be re-grilled or re-roasted with microwave if you want as hot as served in the resto.

    stir-fried mushroom (c) ukirsari

    open lounge with a tent above us make the dinner more enjoyable. people are talking, the food are good and "red face" after dinner caused by beer as perfect companion for roasted goose or duck :)

    Favorite Dish: actually, with roasted goose as main course i never think about additional or side dishes. but heidi said, added with veggie or something else will be great. and the result is .... stir-fried fresh mushroom [champignon] with crab sauce. delicious!!!

    half roasted goose (c) ukirsari

    by ukirsari Updated Nov 7, 2006

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    first thing always across in my mind if speaking about chinese food is roasted duck addressed as peking duck. but heidi introduce me cantonese goose -- not only duck but goose. it's strange in my ears for the first moment. but looking around me and seems everybody enjoy the meals very much, okay ... here we go ... half cantonese roasted goose with plum sauce.

    Favorite Dish: definetely roasted goose. special preparation with soaking goose in marinated sauce [soy sauce, sugar and salt] for moment then hang it and roasting. the result a very crispy roasted goose. served hot with steam rice or rice white noodle, plum sauce, chilli sauce [additional] and beer. what perfect dinner, hmm yummy ;)

    can not help but smile everytime remember heidi's advice, "please read this note carefully. do not make yourself 'lost in space' and 'lost in translation' here in the new territories."
    but that's correct, since in tsuen wan the information about address and direction are not so many as i found in kowloon or tsim sha tsui. but for main roads and public transportations i can still find the signages.
    the easy enroute for me from tsim sha tsui to tsuen wan and vice versa as follows: take mtr tsuen wan line from tsim sha tsui mtr station to mei foo mtr station and take bus nr 51x to tsuen wan west.
