Got the travelling bug

Doing the things you want. This year My wife and I made up our minds that we wanted to travel to several countries. This is a record of our on going trip from New Zealand to Europe and beyond.

First port of call

Hong Kong, population 6.8million, Gateway to China.

Arrived in the early morning of 2nd April, 2012.

Stayed at the Kowloon Hotel. The room was small, even after a requested upgrade but extremely comfortable. The upgrade included an excellent breakfast plus a private lounge with free coffee all day and afternoon tea from 4.00-6.00pm followed by happy hour from 6.00-8.00pm with nibbles and free wine.

On the first day I was caught by a tailor’s spotter who lured me into the tailor’s shop, where I ended up purchasing six custm made shirts and a pair of jeans. I paid a 50% deposit and then the owner came in and measured me for the clothing items. I was then asked to come back later that day to check the measurement for the jeans, at which time minor adjustments were made and I was told the garments would be ready for me to collect the following day. That was a turn around of approx. 28 hours from start t finish. Pretty great service, I thought and the workmanship, first class. If you’re in Hong Kong I highly recommend this tailor. You will find him at Shop 22b G/F Hankow Centre, 5-15 Hankow Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong kong. (MTR Exit L1.) Find out more about Imperial Bespoke Tailors at www.ibtailors.com or email them on info@ibtailors.com Tel (852)2111-19
Be aware that prices are always negotiable in Hong Kong and have fun and enjoy.

Hong Kong is a thriving modern city of immense wealth and one of the leading banking and commercial centres of the world as well as a major tourist destination. If you like shopping, Hong Kong is the place to visit. You will find the finest, most beautiful jewellery, watches, handbags and accessories and, if you enjoy Asian foods, Hong Kong offers some of the world’s best eating places. You do however take a health risk if you choose to sample the street stall foods. The locals are used to the food but inexperienced visitors can experience stomach upsets which will no doubt ruin your holiday. The same applies to drinking water so drink only bottled water.

One of Hong Kong’s tallest buildings, can you see the window cleaners ?

Creating the life style

Weight loss 2012

Healthy Living – Weight Loss
Weight loss, or rather weight adjustment, can be a major contributor towards healthy living and, by creating lifestyle adjustments to help fine tune physical and mental health, you can enhance your lifestyle. This activity can have an effect greater than the small efforts required to implement it.

The Elements of Healthy Living
Everything you do – what you eat and drink, how you spend your time, all combines to contribute to a healthy lifestyle. What you do daily; working, recreation, everything in fact, contributes to not only your physical well-being but your inner mental balance, ever so important in building and maintaining a happy lifestyle.Click Here!

If you are mentally healthy, confident, or happy, it will reflect in the way your body behaves. If you are physically fit and healthy, your mental attitude should reflect this. Body and mind are one, different aspects of the whole, they affect each other and are in turn effected by your life style.

Lifestyle face lifts are not the angle of approach; rather they are peripheral and will happen as a result. Simply aim at improving your physical body and/or your mental attitude. It won’t take a lot, just the fact you are actually working on enhancing and seeking improvement will snowball and inadvertently create that life style lift.

Weight Optimization is an Important part of Healthy Living
Weight optimization is not just about weight loss. In fact there are some less common instances, which will require weight gain rather than loss. Weight adjustment is a twofold process, especially when thought of in context with healthy living. The exercise factor is at least as important as the dietary one, sometimes even more so.

Your lifestyle fitness is indeed important, but adjustments can easily be made if there are problem factors with any of its elements. Enhance your body’s health with just a few minutes of specific exercise once a day, no need for a lifestyle coach, just target body areas you think need toning and strengthening.

By reading up on this (online you will find plenty to read) you can discover a variety of techniques to aid you. By all means be keen and zealous in these applications but slip into new things gradually. Best to do tiny amounts for a few days, increasing gradually until an effective regime of conditioning begins to produce positive results. Revel in it.

It Takes so Little and Yet Every Little Bit Helps
If you already feel you have a contented lifestyle, don’t alter it. Obviously the positive feelings you have about your lifestyle are a plus worth keeping. So you don’t need to refer to a lifestyle magazine at all, but fine adjustments in what you do could see an improvement in your health.

We are in an age of information. Never has so much knowledge been available to so many, so easily. Make use of this knowledge to finely tune your diet, your exercise regime, and so healthily adjust your weight, your fitness, your confidence and your attitude. It takes so little yet gives so much.

Whether you are one of those energetic people who rush around, doing everything for everyone, or are more relaxed and laid back, it isn’t that important. People are different. Don’t force yourself into a lifestyle mold too square or too round for you. Be aware of how you react to stimuli, if it’s not a problem go with it, smile at your own foibles.

A big step on the road to healthy living is to know yourself.Click Here! to accept what you do and to see and really understand your faults as well as your positive aspects. No real need to rush off and try creating lifestyle changes; rather keep the lifestyle you are comfortable with and if you would like some form of change, try adjusting bit by bit, just a little at a time. This lifestyle blog is all about creating the lifestyle you want.
