The exploring tourGITPA — 燒烤樂暨夜探螢火蟲之旅」was successfully held on 10 August 2019 (Saturday).  More than 20 members, their family and friends experienced this amazing tour.

We have organised a shuttle bus commuting between the MTR station and the activity venue.  On the way to the venue, our professional tour guide introduced a lot about firefly.  Being well briefed, we were all so excited looking forward to the coming night!

Having fed with knowledge, we fed our stomach too.  The first part of the activity was BBQ in broad daylight.  Worried about having BBQ in the summer?  With air-conditioning fans and cold water at the venue, BBQ in the summer was also a pleasurable experience.

There were more than 20 food choices for the BBQ, including chicken wings and thighs, pork, sausages, fish ball, shumai, etc.   All in all, it was a “all you can eat” BBQ buffet for two hours!  The big lawn there was an excellent place to have a leisure walk after a big meal — and the walk was a good warm-up exercise before the night adventure!

So had we seen the firefly at night?  Had there been other special guests besides the firefly?  Please stay tuned for the observation report in our next issue!
