About Me 
I joined the Sheraton Hong Kong right after I received my diploma. I worked my way up, starting as a bell boy. I enjoy the variety of my job – there is always something new that awaits me.
I like sports, especially basketball, which I play as a centre in the hotel league. My favourite NBA player is Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks. When I'm travelling, I like to go and watch different countries' basketball leaguematches. I' malsoasneakerscollector – I have over 150 pairs in my collection.
 
 
 
 
Hong Kong Favourite :
I love to visit the outlying islands, such as Lantau, Lamma, Cheung Chau and Peng Chau. There, you can quickly escape the hustle and bustle of the city, back to the countryside, which always makes me feel relaxed and carefree.
 
 
 
Cheung Chau is a scenic island with quiet villages. To get there, take a ferry from Central Pier 5. You can visit the Cheung Po Tsai Cave, a famous pirate haunt, and the Tin Hau and Pak Tai Chinese temples. Rent a bike and cycle the lovely seaside cycling path running along the western shore or take a relaxing walk on Tung Wan Beach and Kwun Yam Beach. Wrap up your visit with a wonderful seafood dinner at any of the seafood restaurants on Pak She Praya Road.
 
 
Bonus Recommendation
Try delicious and fresh Cantonese seafood in Sai Kung, Lei Yue Mun or Sam Shing Estate.
 
 
 
Extra Tip
Check out the Infinity Pool, also called Man Cheung Po, located near the fishing village of Tai O on Lantau. It's a beautiful spot for photos and you can even take a refreshing dip in the cool waters of the pool if there are no guards around .
