Having relocated back to HK for a little over a year now, I have to say… I am rediscovering Hong Kong’s beauty. Growing up in Hong Kong, like most kids of my generation, I didn’t get to enjoy much outdoorsy activities due to heavy schoolwork. Now that I am a working adult, I am even more so experiencing the never-stopping pace of the big city. As much as I love the city’s hustle and bustle, I yearn for tranquility and peace from time to time.
Recently I joined a few friends and also some of our Garagers to go on hikes around the city. To my surprise, I can actually get away from the concrete jungle and find myself on an isolated beach or forest in just a train/ferry ride away! It is not only a great way to get some exercise but also to get closer to the nature and take in the stunning scenery.

If you ever get tired of the city buzz, put hiking excursions in your weekend plans! Rediscover Hong Kong and at the same time rejuvenate your body and soul!

At Garage Society we believe imagination — the capacity to create and evolve — is crucial to how we operate, create opportunities for our members, and find new paths to grow.
As the world adapts, problems aren’t getting simpler, with today’s challenges requiring a more creative approach. From childhood, we’ve been taught that creativity is for some people, or that it’s something you lose as you grow older.
Today’s entrepreneurs do not like getting tied down and are inherently drawn towards options that let them progress at their own growth-plan. Personalisation and a sense of creative freedom has picked up the pace and is here to not only rule but also dominate the work culture.
As part of Garage Society’s Well-Being Month, we sat down with Dutch entrepreneur Madelon van de Ven, to learn more about her flourishing plant subscription startup and her mission to get more urbanites to experience the health and well-being benefits of plants.
