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. :(

After celebrating New Year's in Bangkok, our Kenya Airways flight brought us safely to Hong Kong where on the evening of the 1st day of 2015, we made our way from the airport into the city. Driving there we passed Hong Kong’s huge port and caught a glimpse of the city’s vertical skyline. In this city, I was fortunate to be hosted by one of my Babson tennis teammate, Saif, and took taxi through the mountain to get to his home.
... place so I guess we probably were amusing.
The rest of the afternoon we walked around a very busy area called Sham Shui Po and found a few more bargains. This area was just packed with people and by the end Karry had a headache and our trolley was overflowing and we all had aching feet, so we said our goodbyes to Lan for the day and started the trek back to Joc's place which is on the other side of Hong Kong. Hong Kong ...
... to find some shade from the midday sun as we joined the queue for the Peak Tram. Just an hours stop at the top for photos, coffee and comfort break, it's a packed programme. Taxis down to Stanley for tapas lunch on the balcony of Murray House (just as good as the last time we were there with Brian & Hil). There's still time for a wander around Stanley market and a beer on the seafront, where we ...
... She's very keen to share her knowledge and experiences of Hong Kong so far, which is nice, yet somewhat overwhelming in my still vaguely jet lagged state. We take the MTR to North Point where the others live, stop at a 7/11 on the way to pick up a few drinks and as we're leaving the shop we bump into the two girls whose apartment we're en route to. They picked us out from the crowd because we're discussing the address. They are going to meet another girl who has not been ...
