Fri: arrived HKG in blue sky and warm weather. Thanks to John for meeting me and taking me to lunch before checking into the top and 21st floor of Habour Plaza Metropolis/Hung Hom in Kowloon. First time walking with John around the Whampoa area where a department store is built in the shape of a ship!

Appreciations to Harry for a refreshing midnight walk in the Hung Hom in search of supper.

Sun: lunched in town with John. Delightful live latin music while walking thru’ a mall with a cute little girl swaying in perfect rhythm to the music.

Sight-seeing on the tram from Central en route to Tin Hau. The crowds in Causeway Bay was overwhelming and glad that it was not my stop!

Mon: with a cracked heel and Mother Nature not in my favour, it would be stupid to hike. In addition, the stomach and body are not happy with the over indulgence of good rich food and lack of sleep. Took an easy day, napped and located the bus stop for an early start tomorrow. Thank you Harry for delightful dinner company at the hotel.

Tue: after going to bed between 0100-0300hrs for 4 nights in a row, managed to sleep nearly 4hrs on the Tiger in spite of a toddle kicking from behind! Uneventful on time journey to SIN. Need to rest before the CNY, could never even party like the last 4 days in my youth, so what on earth makes me think I can do so NOW 🙂
