1. Dimsum for breakfast
2. Dimsum for lunch
3. & dimsum for dinner.. isn’t such a bad idea.
4. Must have tasted 20 kinds of dimsum all in all.
5. The sight of Jollibee side by side with the carinderia food in Little Quiapo looked surreal. I wouldn’t be caught dead eating Chicken Joy in HK but I have this weird habit of eating at McDonald’s (or KFC) in every country am in.
5. Pinoys everywhere. But woe to the one who gave me the wrong direction…. grrr!
7. Malls that rival the ones in Manila in terms of size , but better selections.
8. While my companions bought their $2,000 MacBook Pros, my biggest splurge was a jacket at Zara.
9. Stumbling into this vintage shop selling Thierry Mugler, Escada and Hermut Lang at drop-dead prices and none for my size. Dang!!
10. Indecent proposal from this foreign delegate who had the gall to tell me twice: “If you’re free, why don’t you go to my room and let’s have a drink?” Duh??
11. The fact that my cozy room was unoccupied 80% of the time because of my hectic sked. So much of the plasma TV, the mountain of pillows and the Egyptian linen.
12. Was able to squeeze in some time in the gym. Hurrah!
13. In lieu of the bathtub in my room, I stepped into the rain shower and had a “rain shower massage.” Cool!
14. A picture taken with Simon Yam, very famous Hong Kong actor who figured as a villain in Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
15. San Miguel Beer in the grocery and drinking San Miguel Beer at the hotel bar. Sikat!
16. Friendly sales persons at Giordano. Can’t wait to buy 8 pants to get one free, hehe
17. Lots of glossy informative brochures in the airport and other places. Made me think that this is how the Philippines should do it to get moving with our tourism at least.
18. Never-ending chicken adobo sandwich on Cathay Pacific’s Hong Kong-Manila, Manila HK economy class. The world traveller among our group commented that Singapore Airlines is definitely better in terms of service and the fact that they serve hot meals on board on the same leg.
19. Overall, I liked Hong Kong and the fact that it’s very near Manila. Will definitely go back with my kiddies and have a taste of the Hong Kong Disneyland experience… hopefully soon.
20. Going back to Manila, not only is the sorry state of our airport depressing, visiting the Duty Free building was the pits. You had to move around the whole block to get from one point to another and the selections were so-so. There were no effin’ chocolates in the grocery. Straighten up, idiots!!!
