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. :(

... Then one of the girls said, "Oh, my dad has alopecia too because he has a big bald spot at the back of his head." We did go for a squash hit this morning at 8:45. You could shoot a cannon through the club. The same locker attendant was there, a short, smiley HK women who called me Madam. Today she said, "You are very nice Madam." I thanked her and told her she was very nice too. The squash was slow this morning. My body felt tired but I'm not sure ...

There is a safety drill scheduled for not long after we get back to the cabin so we decide to wait till after that to open the champers. An announcement comes over the tannoy that the drill will be soon. It instructs us that when the alarm sounds we are to make our way downstairs to our muster point. We are to bring with us our life jackets and any medication we take regularly. Shortly later the alarm sounds and off we ...
So how to follow that today. To be honest there is no point even trying to out weird that night, so we decide to take in the Bird Market, and right next door is the Flower Market.
The bird market is a garden type area where you can buy all manner of songbirds and birds of all colour and variety. There was a bewildering cacophony of tweets squawks chirps and the most beautiful bird songs. The cost of the birds ran from the fairly inexpensive to ...
... went on a roller coaster called the Hair Raiser (not a good move with a hangover!) then went on a couple of others aswell and just wondered around to look at the penguins, seals and a giant walrus! We then went to dinner at Neptune's Restaurant which is inside the aquarium so you sit and eat next to the fish, sharks and stingrays! It was amazing! The food was really good aswell! It was then home for an early night for ...
... and Mandarin is more universal than Cantonese. Plus, it's Hong Kong, so why not?
The moment the plane touched the landing strip, I was in awe at the fact that I was finally in Hong Kong after months and months of talking about it. However, I feel like my friends and I hyped up Hong Kong way too much. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy it here for the most part. The city/country/territory is so much more interesting than back in Columbia, SC, but so much more humid as well. It ...
