|Ocean Park – Dragon roller coaster|
We are almost towards the end of our Chinese New Year holidays, and while going out of town for a holiday to a ski resort or to a beach would have been exciting and adventurous, I really enjoyed my holiday right here at home, in Hong Kong.
We had prepared this holiday planner and put it up on the bedroom door and keep checking-off the tasks completed and things done. While we all love going out and having fun, this holiday was a bit different – this time we were happy to stay indoors – and it had nothing to do with the weather! It was actually our dear friend – the guinea pig who kept luring us back home. Named ‘Guinea’ this
adorable jet-black guinea pig actually belongs to the school I work for and just comes home over weekends to spend time with us. This time we got lucky – we got to keep him for this whole week-long holiday! My younger son who is 6 specially adores him. He gives him his food on time, cleans his cage, fills up his little water bottle, and loves to keep him busy. Guinea goes for a ride in a cardboard box which is supposedly the Titanic and which is just about to crash into an iceberg, but miraculously gets saved in the nick of time, by a gently hand who guides him to a life boat! Sometimes he is driven around in his Porsche round the bends and the curves of our house and sometimes he is attacked by a ferocious dinosaur who rattles on his cage, only to be saved by a Super-boy who comes charging at the dinosaur before he can get to our Guinea! Oh yes it’s so much fun to be at home this holiday!
