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. :(

... Later in the day we went to dinner at a place Rachel had been to before as she was craving the seafood they did. We also snuck in some steamed Asian greens and some BBQ pork buns among the mains. It was glorious. The waiters couldn't believe how much we ate! Now in the midst of a 'food coma' we decided not to go to the temple street night markets and sleep instead. Looking forward to our tour tomorrow! - Nick and ...
... up to a little town with a giant statue of Buddha so I decided to go up there. Unfortunately I chose to go on a Sunday when the rest of Hong Kong seemed also to be going up. I waited for an hour and a half in a very hot queue just to buy a ticket and then I had to wait another 1/2 an hour to get on the cable car. The worst part was that there was an empty queue next to us where people who had been smart enough to buy there tickets beforehand could stroll gently past us crowded ...

We then found out that by pure accident that the picture of the guy on the train was a famous Hong Kong actor BAT LEUNG GUM who was famous for being ugly. Keep a look out for future ...
Today we visited Po-Lin monastery and Tian-Tan giant Buddha, catching the local bus from the ferry terminal, Being on the highest hill, it was a winding, twisting road to the top and the poor old bus had a struggle to reach the top. Entry to the Monastery and the Buddha are free, however if you wish to enter the belly of the Buddha to see the holy relics, there is an entry fee, which includes a cooked lunch. Being Buddhists, it ...
