am home :)


taken at Lan Kwai Fong with a bunch of England fans obviously :)

I'm back :) All shopped out and extremely sore.. Arrived home just after midnight today and the li' one was sound asleep of coz...First thing I did was to step on the scales :P..I was so convinced that I had lost some weight becuz i walked so much in HK and didn't really indulge in food but I'd actually gained 1.5kg!!! kua kua!

Had a great time in HK! I think it really helped to have someone 'localised' --> Mongmeganmacy to bring me around. Am sure that if I'd just came with hubby, we would have taken cabs everywhere and visit only the touristy spots! Mong knew where the great buys were and took me around the island just to shop! Shopping in HK was fab! Lotsa good buys! Again, I bought loads of stuff for Aidan and also couldn't resist buying some pretty li' girl dresses for my pals' daughters. Oh..and the service in HK was actually quite good! So much better than those deplorable sales pple/waiters in Singapore. Even with their limited knowledge of English, they tried to assist me as much as possible. And I'm not just referring to my experience in boutiques..I had the same kinda treatment in those small roadside shops too!


Singapore in red :P</small>

We went to the HK 7s on Saturday only..and we were just in time to watch Singapore play against Korea !! What was great about the crowd was that they supported and cheered the underdogs most of the time so Singapore got a tremendous response when they scored. And the announcer had to inform the entire stadium that it was Singapore's first and only try of the tournament (how embarrassing :P). Before that, Singapore lost to Argentina and France with the same scoreline - 0-48! In the end, Singapore was trounced by Korea by a whopping huge margin of abt 45-5 (yeah..Singapore didn't even manage to convert)! But it was all in good fun I guess..At least Singapore got to play with Argentina who was 2nd in the tournament. England won the HK 7s in case anyone's interested.

That night, we went to Lan Kwai Fong with Mong and her hubby Edward. and I think so did all the ruggers and their supporters. The place was jammed pack with people and it was really happening!! Everyone was partying like mad and inbibing like crazy and basically having a good time!! It was almost like mardi gras..People were dressed up in costumes and had their face painted! Loved the atmosphere...the buzz was great! Had never experienced anything like that in Singapore before but of coz, I'd not partied for a while already. Hubby and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously and it brought back memories of our 'clubbing' days :)







We had a girls nite out on Thursday night at LKF and it wasn't that crowded then...

Haven't uploaded all the pics yet coz hubby is using the pc and everything's there...will probaby do it tomorrow :)

I'd actually gained 1.5kg!!!

Wah.... HKG very dangerous man.

Yeah, service in HKG is so much better hor. That was already my impression several years ago, and they've gotten even better. HKGers are also very much more considerate in the MTR compared to Singaporeans.

*sigh* Makes you wonder how Singapore can ever compete!

i understand that after Sars, the service has improved so much more. I'm comparing my experience with the first time i was in HK which as abt 9 years ago and the difference is tremendous! That's also one reason why my shopping expedition this time round was so much better.

Honestly, i dun think singaporeans can compete at all...*sigh*

hey next time u go over, remember to meet up with Mong or at least ask her where's the place to visit!

omg... the singapore team scored only 1 try in the whole tourament? alamak... so paiseh. how cold was it in HK?
angeliatay
Mar. 29th, 2004 02:33 am (UTC)
quite chilly at times especially at night..between 18-22 degrees..drizzled a fair bit too.

yeah..kinda paiseh man! And Korea wasn't even a strong team at all. The sporean team was soooo slow..couldnt move much before getting sacked by the koreans. And the korean team was made up of koreans and the spore team had quite a no. of foreign imports. Spore manage to score a try only after a reserve player came in and i think he was the only one with some energy left in him.

I can't believe when I read that you gained 1.5 kg... now I know I had to be cautious while having a holiday in HK man...

Looks like you had a well-deserved break in HK, and a great time with all the ladies and with your hubby of course.

the red cross pic you look so happy (and your head is kinda crushed by the gwei lo's head). you surely did have a great time in hk la. Heh heh. Every one can tell. Look at you and mong in all the pictures!! Plus the one in 許留山! I think one of the interesting thing in hk (esp hk island) is that, every shopping spot is simply accessible via your legs.

come to hk again next year :)

Love all the pics you took and with/without you in it.

(oh, i look so sad, like wanna cry :p...)
