Mr and Mrs C go Central

GS and CC head into Hong Kong Island, Friday night, dressed accordingly, ready to see what the city that never sleeps has on offer...
Orange lucozade in one hand, caramel macchiato in the other. Right, grins on faces here they go for the 50 minute journey (also a ham and egg sandwich all courtesy of 7/11)

Made it. Places on the agenda to visit; Feather Boa, Cheri Cheri, Basement Bar, Club 71. All pretty close together, walking distance. It's humid, busy, quite touristy; Australians, English, they want to escape from the hustle and bustle and there a NQ equivalent? A Common where Claire & Joe might be waiting?

CC's heels are high and so are the roads, escalator(s) seem like the better choice of transportation! Still no drink yet, their mouths are dry, their faces warm...where to go, where to go?

30 minutes later find a quiet little drinking portal 'Sapphire'; Chocolate Martini & Singapore Sling please. Ada the owner sends them on their way, in search of Fringe Club.

FClub is good/interesting, has potential. Roof garden is very very pretty, surrounded by little fairy lights, tiny light bulbs, encased in by the mass sky scraper buildings. Drinks; Sol & Pink Gin. Certainly not a place that goes by the rules of service with a smile. Unfortunately no Claire and Joe making an appearance tonight, no one really around to be friends with...they guess in time that might change. For now Mr and Mrs Cheung can tuck into their Fish & Chips and a tasty Double Burger, finish their drinks and head back to the mtr. Their peaceful little palace is waiting and seems even more enticing.
