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.

Christmas is a coming...

Writing Christmas cards today. Realising I'm going to be away from home... Christmas wishes will be sent from HK. Bought some new slippers too. They are another of my favourite things. Keep my feet warm, cheap & very cheerful - also furry. Yes x

Ghetto Oriental

Came across the best hat today, so on that note decided to create my new look "Ghetto Oriental".
We think they're wicked. Orders now being taken.

A good day

Discovered a place to get super chicken chow mein, right on my doorstep! Also, purchased some great lighting from another good shop - shop called Homeless. Overall a good day. Still raining a bit though. Realised that doing a food shop isn't so cheap; definitely Sainsbury's prices not Asda.
And been married a whole month now x

Visiting hours are 5.45pm - 2.45am

HK had some more visitors 3rd December, and we had our first. It was fun fun. Delicious... and I ate Frogs legs. And they did taste like chicken! Dancing to some good music. Drinking Passionfruit Pleasures. Chatting some scary chat. Taxi home for $200.
Thanks Kimmy & Jens x


searched high and low for mooi shop today, another nice little find and a nice area too. Tai Pei - definitely a place to go back to I think. A paper maps day indeed.


poor me and my poor ankles
