We woke and were simply taken aback by the views from Steve's apartment. From the second you open your curtains you cant help but be impressed. We have sea views from our room with the airport adding additional interest along with other greenery.

We were quickly given a guided tour of the facilities on offer at Chez Tunstall, you know the normal kind of thing, olympic size swimming pools (outdoor) normal size swimming pool (indoor), 2 jacuzzi's, hydrotherapy beds, water slides, 6 tennis courts, 3 badminton courts, a squash court, a gym, a full size snooker table, you know the kind of things on offer at most youth hostels.

After deciding a few days ago that enough was enough and we needed to get ourselves laptops, especially since the sad loss of Rorie and Emer's I-Pod we promptly headed for the meeting point to start electronics shopping and haggling. Rorie and Emer had turned up early and we were about one or two minutes late, which appauled me. We headed off for Mong Kok (nice name) where the electronics districts are. We looked at cameras and laptops and hard drives and god knows what else then started with the price comparison, "best price", "special price", negotiated cash price, price for two scenario. After about 5 hours we bought two laptops for about 220 pounds each.

After a hard day negotiating and shopping we headed back to Chez Tunstall, and were met by the kids and Mr T. We corrupted Mr T and got him on the vin rouge and watched the updates on the new UK government on Sky news (oh yes we have it all here) while getting the laptop connected to the internet etc.

Going to do nothing but chill out at the pool tomorrow.
