Greg's trip to the beach:
At the football match (despite the stereotype of the Chinese people being small, Greg was even smaller than all of them, so you can't actually see him here
Greg in the lobby of a very posh hotel, pretending to be a guest there and going for a dip in the fountain
Greg hits the cable cars at Ocean Park
"Whoah, it's a long way down... Me not scared... Honest!"
Here's Greg sampling some local cuisine, and finding the portions a little too large...
The perfect solution, we managed to find a Furby-sized restaurant for him!
And now for Greg's shark encounter
Greg getting a little closer to get a better look (ooh, those teeth!)...
Shark attack!! Dr Rob tries to pull Greg from the shark's mouth...
In the end, we had to cut him out of the shark!!
Phew, what a day. And it's not over yet...
Greg meets the pandas at Ocean Park
He was very excited to be on this panda's flute, until we told him it wasn't a real one! (panda that is...)
Beautiful, and only 1600 of them left in the world apparently
We had to stop him from leaping over the glass and giving the pandas a "Dah May-Lah"!
Greg has a go on a Furby-sized ferris wheel
Having fun on the wheel, but he wouldn't dare ride the Furby-sized rollercoaster
Walk along Hong Kong harbour, and the "Avenue of Stars"
Greg in the director's chair, bossing everyone around
Making sure the camera man does his job
Greg sitting on the clapperboard - this Director business is really going to his head
Now he's walking in Jet Li's handprints!!
Then Jackie Chan's... Who's next?? Tom Cruise?
And finally, Greg admires the beautiful view across the harbour
Greg was also very busy for the last couple of days!! He visited a special place, see if you can guess where...
Any clues yet??
Surely you must know now??
Yep, you've got it!!
It was Greg's first Disney visit, and he was very excited about it. First stop was straight onto Dumbo...
Then we hit the cars (Autopia), and Greg even had a go himself at driving!
Next Greg met Buzz Lightyear:
Finally, it was time for the Mickey parade. What Dah Doo-Ay!
Under the sea, tra la la la...
Toy Story, Greg's favourite!
It's the Main Man himself!
Finally, nightime draws in, and the beautiful castle is lit up.

On Monday, Greg visiting Hong Kong park. It's very peaceful and green there, and there are lots of fountains and water features, although it's funny cos it's in the middle of a big city and surrounded by skyscrapers!
He wanted to go sailing on the water lillies
Later that day we took a tram up the Peak tower. The tram goes up a hill so steep, at times you feel as though you are vertical! And yet some people who don't have seats have to stand up!
Here's another pic of the view from the top of the peak
Greg Meets the Stars
The name's Furb... Greg Furb
Who's that peeking out from Eddie Murphy's jacket? Oh, it's Greg!
Mel Gibson was particularly chuffed to meet Greg
Hugh Grant was positively star-struck!
Glamming it up with Kylie:
Greg thought David Beckham was a bit poncy...
Making friends with Hannibal (Greg is braver than me!)
Kicking some butt with good old Indie
Greg meets the Queen
However, he couldn't resist making a short presidential speech
FURBY FOR PRESIDENT!!!
Ghandi was fascinated, he'd never seen a Furby before
Greg got to play golf with Tiger Woods!
Did anybody know the Beatles actually had a fifth member?
Playing guitar with The King
Greg hits the stage with Tina and Freddie
Marilyn Monroe looks thrilled to be meeting Greg!
Jacko taught Greg the moonwalk, while Greg showed him a thing or two about the Furby dance!

On the last night, we went to a karaoke bar. What Dah Doo-Ay - they had an all-you-can-eat buffet, and you do the karaoke in your group in your own private room so you don't perforate anyone else's eardrums
You can see Dr Rob playing on the Nintendo Wii on the left
Here's Greg at Hong Kong airport, about to depart - the biggest, shiniest, fastest airport in the world
And here he is in front of our plane, at Gatwick, finally on home soil (cold and rainy home soil though...)
I realised that we hadn't had a pic of Greg with his heart lit up yet, so here it is. And Greg brought a special friend back, guess who...
Thank you for viewing!
