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. :(

Unfortunately it's not easy to buy an iphone here! You have to be online at 8am to reserve them for pick up that day, and the demand out ways the supply by a huge amount, so most people are unsuccessful...we were too. Had a good nap after we failed though, and then headed out feeling fully rested. We begin with an underground journey from Causeway bay to Central. Then it's on to a ferry across to Kowloon, the other main island that makes up Hong Kong. Here we wonder down ...
... printed photo or nothing - we chose nothing! Fortunately we had a photo on our camera.
We got dropped off on the waterfront, ready for the Government funded Symphony of Lights - the World's largest permanent light and sound show. We were a bit disappointed. It was pretty, but the magic was already there with the building lights reflected in the water.
After our big afternoon, we were ready for a beer - well, perhaps not ...
... the evenings so there is obviously lots of money here and lots of visitors from mainland China as it is ...
... there are shops, malls and outlets everywhere. There are 'vertical' malls due to space limitations, some of which reach 17 floors. We rode to the 100th floor of the ICC building at Harbour City, again in the evening so that we could see the city lights. Great potential, were it not for the bridal show on the observation deck that had so much light it was impossible to photograph the city below due to the reflections. Oh well. Yesterday we headed out ...
Another Marathon in Hong Kong...yet...this time a little bit special~ After the run for cancer in Athens...maybe it is a good idea to run for a good cause, therefore, I also run for the Hong Kong Anti-cancer society this time~
Yes~ You can do more than running in a marathon~
