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. :(

... and got to walk up 22.3m high to be precise and that was fun. After that we went on a "mine cart" ride and I highly recommend you to go on that because we went on it 3 times - 2 times at the beginning and 1 time at the end. It was like a roller coaster type ride where you sat in a cart and travelled fast along a track. The fun part about it was you climbed up the track at one point and suddenly dropped back down and raced backwards for about 150m. Then we went to toy story land and ...
... on this ride so i will try and get some footage up soon.
We ventured next to the World of Sea Jellies. There were so many different jellies and they were all illuminated. Our feet were sore and we were tired, we were looking for a seat to rest when we got lucky. The closest thing was Ocean Theatre and it was only 20min from the dolphin show starting. We sat down to rest and watch the show. The show was good, not as good as the ones in ...
... green. It tastes like a mint cordial with half a tonne of sugar in it. I hold my nose and drink it down whilst Roseanna slurps down her noodles. After lunch we decide to split our different ways as I want to go and get a good seat for watching the light show.
I was excited about the light show, I'd heard a lot about it. It was mentioned in all of the guide books I'd read and when our hostel was just down the road I was doubly excited. I had ...

... the juxtaposition of our lavish residence overlooking the water towards the basic shack in which we were eating. It was built of scaffolding pipes and tarpaulin with a basic boardwalk flooring and tables covered in plastic sheeting. We sat around a round table featuring a makeshift lazy Susan and we had barely stood up to leave when several waiters - more likely family members? - emptied the leftovers from the plates onto the plastic ...
