The Peak.

Hey everypup - Scooter here~

Want to go to The Peak with Mom while she was in Hong Kong last week?  It's way up on top of a hill above Hong Kong and you take a tram up the steep hill.  The seats are built so that even if you are leaning back at what would be a 45 or so degree angle you are sitting straight up as you go up the hill.

Entrance to The Peak Tram.

It had just stopped raining, but was still hot and humid.  

Leaning over people to take a shot while riding up the tram.  It was very "cozy" during the ride.  

I think this is a restaurant.

Are you scared?
Overlooking Kowloon.  Mom's hotel is somewhere behind the lion's neck.

Now are you scared?

How about now???
 Funny side note - Mom's been typing on her phone or Kindle and had to look at the laptop keyboard to figure out where ??? was located.  Jetlag.
Taken from The Peak looking down toward Kowloon.
Mom's office building is way over to the upper right - ish area.

A "very rich person" lives here according to our gang from the office.
I'd love to have coffee in the mornings there.

Well lookie here...Can she never get away from WORK?
Here's the tram to go back down the hill.
 After she came down from The Peak, it was off to see another store before going to dinner.  A walk through the park on the way wildlife was seen.
Hippo out of living plants.

Turtles are for good luck.

Baby turtles too.

Along the garden walk.

Once again WORK is around the corner.
After that Mom went to dinner with the WORK folks with some owners of some factories.

Let us know if you want to see more pictures and stories from the far East.

Sniff at ya later ~Scooter~


Hey everypup ~Scooter here~

Well Mom's birthday month comes to a close.  Mom's a Gemini and all Gemini's get an entire month for their birthdays.  She says it's written somewhere and so far every Gemini you will ever meet will agree.  Must be true...??...let's just give it to them and follow along.  So far she's been here egg-sacitally 15 of the 30 days in this month and for some reason she mentioned on the phone that not a dog snore was missed while tossing and turning in a bed she's not used to.  "Sleeping like a dog" is something we will have to "learn" her on before Monday morning so she can pay to refill our kibble bin.  BOL

Rain approaching....
Didn't get much better from the hotel to the office.  Rain and even more rain.  Mom's from Seattle and "rain" here is very different from "rain" in Hong Kong.  Umbrellas in Seattle are for tourists.  Umbrellas in HK - an accessory this time of the year.  Ask Mom, she got a sunburn on the last day just from walking around for 2 hours to kill time before he ride to the airport...

We'll fill you in more, but for now we seem to have "jet lag" and it's better to catch up now on zzzz's instead of the early morning meeting on Monday.  Glad Mom has to wake up early and I just get to do my Scooter day sleeping.  It's been tough making sure Mom's Mom has been up to speed on our SNACKS™ neediness.

Sniff at ya later ~Scooter~
