... soon. That we did, and the people behind us had a flight to Hanoi at 7:00 AM. Our bags were put up on the scale and it was discovered that we have a small problem with the weight, and I'll need to pay some extra money. It wasn't 15 seconds past and the people behind me started sounding off their comments about "you have a bag problem and we have a flight !" The Air Asia rep assured them we are ...
So, after a grueling 13 hour flight, I am in HKG International (Hong Kong) Terminal.
How was the flight you ask, well, let's just say it was not the best...
1. Window seat instead of my aisle preference.
2. 3 screaming 2 to 4 year olds. This ons girl in front of me I think screamed and cried the whole flight.
3. There were about a 60% Indian population on the plane, which I thought was ...
... Causeway Bay ... I stepped off the bus into the humidity of Hong Kong and looked around wondering how the hell i was going to find my hostel ... would you believe .. IT WAS OVER THE ROAD!!!! easy peasy lemon squeezy!! ..

got some street snacks - bbq prawn and grilled scallop, visited the cultural museum with lots of time to spare. caught up on some much needed sleep on the tour bus while waiting
Today is our last day in Hong Kong.
It is a very cloudy day with low cloud covering the ICC and IFC buildings.
Before we leave we must go to Tsim Sha Tsui to Thomas our newly found optician and pick up some glasses we ordered earlier in the week.

I booked a single room with shared bathroom. Somehow when i came the bathroom was under repair and I was given a choice of sharing with another male in a 4-bed room with attached bathroom. Of course I didn't want to. But I wasn't being fussy so I agreed. Thank God the guy I shared the room with was not disturbing or anything.
I think it was the humidity in HK that made everything so wet. From walls to floors to bedsheet, everything was damp. And of course that was not a nice environment to be in. But I wasn't fussy and all I wanted was a place to keep my stuff and sleep and bathe cos it will just be a night.
There were 4 super small single bed. It shocked me, really. And the one that i took was rock-hard. There were 2 beds in between my bed and the Chinese guy I was sharing with. The toilet was average. The whole room was not equipped with rubbish bin. The TV was not working but that wasn't my concern.
They didn't give me any room keys. When I got back I had to tell the reception to open my door. Due to my early checkout they didn't take any deposit. So I paid full amount (a single room with shared bathroom) for a shared room. It was awkward but I was in a 8-bed dorm previously so it was ok. But this experience was beyond totally weird because the room was small and to be so close to another person was not in my agenda. The toilet door has translucent glass that made me able to see what was my roomie doing inside so I had to turn my position (for surfing net) towards the wall.
and also my roomie snored. :(
