vr2/m0xpd meets Häagen Dazs

So – now for a little travelogue…

Arrived in Hong Kong on the afternoon of Saturday 30th Jan, after the usual exhausting flight (made better by great service from the Air New Zealand crew) and transferred to the Harbor Plaza Metropolis Hotel in Kowloon.

During the transfer I noticed for the first time the number of container ports in and around Hong Kong – add them together and you get an operation big enough to make Felixstowe look pathetic!

I checked into an upgraded suite, which gave me the real benefit of access to a cocktail bar happy hour (which, mercifully, lasted longer than an hour) with great views over the harbour towards HK…



…and the dubious benefit of Häagen Dazs theming – which is easy enough hanging on the wall above the bed…



… but impossibly distracting as a frame for the TV…



Unfortunately, the fridge was empty too!!!

Next on the itinerary is China.
