Luk Chau Quarry - Lamma Bridge 南丫島鹿洲灣-石礦場石橋水壩
Hong Kong

鄰近索罟灣的南丫石礦場,關閉後經過復修綠化,於2002年建了人工湖,四周長了不少蘆葦。經過幾年的荒廢,今年政府開始探討這地區的未來土地用途,而發展住宅項目的可能性肯定是大眾的聚焦點。趁尚未決定其未來,先到這兒的人工湖走一轉,為其現貌留點紀錄吧。考察南丫島人工湖2002 年已正式荒廢南丫島鹿洲石礦場,今年政府好似落實將要發展這一區,建豪宅,看來將會成為第二個馬灣,趁這區仍然保留原始氣色,正好來一個考察,為地貌作一個紀錄。首先多謝人仔師兄在唔夠瞓之情況下都積極參予,是日一行三人十點四船登陸索罟灣,隨即上菱角山觀奇石,熱身後午飯索罟灣才作今日主菜之旅。走郊遊徑到半山亭,覓得水泥小徑下石礦場(唔會有帶路繩引路),到達已荒廢之水泥廠,昔日房舍設施已被厚厚藤蔓所閉,但亦難掩昔日設施與規模,見到有棵樹由去水位長出來,樹齡最少也有十五年以上,正好為荒廢程度上作一佐證。深入有蓋大型倉庫,只見隨地遺下不少 BB 彈,看來此地也輪為熱愛 WAR GAME 人仕另一天堂。續深入宏偉水泥鼓下,估唔到 office 仍有工作人員留守(一名),但我們並沒有受到驅趕,參觀完後續取道由破閘進入昔日石礦場,在去人工湖途中,我們已找到回青年營石屎徑退路,到達人工湖畔,發現內湖外湖共三個,並設有人工引水道,但奇怪湖水呈現一片深黑,石質亦帶灰黑,似煤灰湖,並且湖邊並沒有想像中花開處處,如果不是土壤關係,看來水質應該是鹹海水,我們半環湖途中亦發現不少不明所意之設施,續走到山脊作宏觀考察,發現在石礦場圍網外有一條行山隊所開之繞網邊徑,好奇下深入探究,因時間所限只好回走青年營水泥小徑退出,直走榕樹灣中途碰見名聞遐邇之『阿婆豆腐花』,可能身體失去唔少糖份,個人覺得相當唔錯,到達榕樹灣的時候,咸蛋黃的夕陽為我們今次考察之旅圈上一個句號。

More About Hong Kong

Overview and HistoryHong Kong sits on the south coast of China, on the Pearl River Delta. It's got a population of more than seven million people and is one of the most densely populated places on earth. It also appears to be putting into place the template for population management, which cities around the world will be implementing as soon as they can afford it. More on that later.Archaeological evidence dates human activity beneath present-day Hong Kong back to the stone age. The area was first settled by people from the mainland during the Han dynasty, around the beginning of the common era (the P.C. term for when B.C. changed to A.D. Whoa!)For hundreds of years, Hong Kong was a small fishing community and haven for travelers, with a few pirates here and there. Then whitey showed up.Western influence reached China at the beginning of the 15th century, when all those great explorers in boats were cruising for loot in strange and mysterious places. Tea and silk were the commodities connecting eastern Europe to China, and Hong Kong was known as a safe harbor through which to pass. When you're carrying the Queen's tea, it's especially important to avoid ARRRRRRguments with pirates. Hyuk hyuk hyuk.Seriously folks -- in the eighteenth century Britain was doing a booming business with China, offering Indian opium to balance their extensive purchases of fine porcelains and everything else. The opium was ordained to be for medicinal purposes only, of course.Well, as you may imagine, the Chinese got sick of opium fiends junking up the place, so they attempted to stop the British suppliers, to no avail. The Opium Wars resulted and ended with China ceding Hong Kong to the British, in fear of their massive naval power. This took place in the year 1841.Colonization soon followed, Hong Kong shot up in value as an international port, and its population increased dramatically. In 1898 Britain acquired additional territories on a 99 year lease -- expiring in 1997. Does that year sound familiar? Read on.In the 20th century Hong Kong changed hands several times. The British surrendered it to Japan during World War Two, then took it back after Japan's defeat, then gave it to China later. Immediately following the war, Hong Kong served as a safe haven for hundreds of thousands of Chinese refugees, while the Chinese National Government was losing its civil war against communist leadership.The population of Hong Kong exploded as corporations seeking to escape Chinese isolationism arrived and set up shop. Cheap labor in the textile and manufacturing industries steadily built up the economy and ensured foreign investment. By the end of the 20th century Hong Kong had become a financial mammoth offering banking services to the world.In 1997 Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule with a few stipulations in place to guarantee its economic autonomy, as much as possible. The phrase "one country, two systems" was coined by the Chinese to describe the relationship between the mainland and Hong Kong.Getting ThereWell, where do you want to get to from the Hong Kong International Airport? There are ferries servicing six mainland ports in the Pearl River Delta Region. Airport Express Railway connects directly to downtown Hong Kong, and it has been rated the best airport in the world multiple times.The Airport Express Railway will get you into Hong Kong in about an hour, for $100. Public buses cost $10 and take a little longer. For direct service to your hotel you can take one of the hotel's private buses ($120+) or a taxi ($300+). As you can see, waiting time is optional for those who can afford it.Here's a little blurb on travel times, with further information for access to nearby cities (cross-boundary transport).TransportationGrab an Octopus card when you arrive. Octopus is the world's first electronic ticket-fare card system and the Hong Kong public transportation system is the world leader in people-moving. 90% of Hong Kongers get around on public transportation.Octopus covers the Airport Rail line, buses, ferries, the rapid-transit MTR network, supermarkets, fast food outlets, phone booths... It's how to get around the cashless economy.Nevermind the microchip built into it, you'll get used to having one of those on you at all times -- and soon they'll be internal! What do I mean? Many schools in Hong Kong even use the Octopus card to check attendance, because you read the card's data with an external scanner from a distance. This will the global norm soon. What if that chip is installed in your body? It's in the works baby!The hilly Hong Kong terrain also demands some special modes of transportation. If you've been to Pittsburgh, you may have some idea of how cool it is to ride a cable car up the side of a mountain, overlooking a majestic harbor and city. Multiply that by about ten thousand and you've got Hong Kong: vertical-travel trams, moving sidewalks, and the world's longest outdoor escalator system.People and CultureThe local currency is the Hong Kong dollar (HKD) which is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Official languages are Chinese and English.  You're on your own, baby!  Dive into the swarming, throbbing, pulsing, crawling and teeming mix!Things to do & RecommendationsThe Peak Tower and its shopping Galleria are the biggest tourist attraction in Hong Kong so don't miss it.Cool off in the Kowloon Park public indoor swimming pool!After that, go see what's happening at the Hong Kong Fringe Club, a non-profit organisation which puts together exhibitions for international artists and performers.Organize sports fans flock to the Hong Kong Stadium, but there's good news for disorganized sportistas too -- Mountain biking is now legal in the parks! Have at it, baby!All this excitement is going to make you hungry. Springtime is traditionally the time to celebrate seafood, summer is for fruits, and winter steams with hot pot soups to keep you warm.The best thing to do is go and find some dim sum. Dozens of plates of tasty small items, sort of like sushi but it's cooked, and the varieties are endless.Since you won't be able to walk down the street without complete and total sensory overload, I'll just whap in the Hong Kong tourist board's guide to dining and leave you to your intuition.Good luck, take it slow and above all -- DON'T SPIT OUT YOUR CHEWING GUM ON THE SIDEWALK. Gum is legal but there's a $500 fine for intentional littering. Enjoy!Text by Steve Smith.
