We set off on the 9th, really buzz on the way there, but on the flight there the three of us were sat in different places for the 12 hour flight, we mostly slept and watched films (well Molly was travel sick).
We arrived around 2 in the afternoon and we were hit by the heat, it was around 27 degrees, and i was in trakies and a jumper XD.

Julie Farrel picked us up from the airport; the Farrel family is where Abby and molly were staying (and me for two of the nights). They had an amazing 'flat' which in reality was 3 floors, with a double roof. the higher roof had a trampoline on it! We were then introduced to the pets poise the dog and Toastie the cat.

We showered, rested a bit and headed out around 6ish. We took the star ferry across the port in order to get a great panoramic view of the business district. It was spectacular, I've never seen such a skyline, there were huge skyscrapers and lights everywhere including a laser show). It was a bit like in the movies when you see the NY skyline. We looked like classic tourists walking around with camera's pointing and Molly folding out her massive map! There were two incredible buildings, the IMF building which is the tallest in HK and the 'nose clipper' which is the one in batman.

We headed back to the Farrel's as we had all had about 2 hours sleep in 30 or so. One of the two Farrel daughters, Hannah had made us a lovely noodle dinner. This was my first proper attempt at using chopsticks, which was amusing for everyone else. Unlike Abby's blog i thought i made a decent effort, she begs to differ....
