    Hey, we’re in HK airport right now waiting to get on a plane off this island!! Ha! 🙂 I’m glad someone is looking forward to getting here because I’m certainly looking forward to getting off!!! Next stop, Hainan! Home of what had better be the best damn chicken rice on the planet!!! 🙂

    Enjoy your trip!!! On another note. I saw something here that reminded me of you. Rows after rows after rows of those cartoon tokidoki le sport sac bags that you love. Fake of course…. I gagged… and thought of you. Sweet huh? 😛

      Haha we exactly miss each other. Can’t wait to see what the chicken rice is like in Hainan though.. maybe it sings and dances on the way to youre plate.

      I hope you bought me a Tokidoki! 🙂

    Wow I would be SO overwhelmed by all that work, it sounds INSANE! I’m sure if anyone can do it, you can do it! :o) And think, HK not only has better Western food than the mainland, but also cheaper shopping (especially on items like make up) so if you have to go there a lot for business, that’s a good thing!!!

      I agree! I think HK has better food and shopping by far. Ah well, will have to hunt down the good places in SHA 😉

    Oh my goodness, so much! I know you can do it, but I can’t believe they reduced so many to just you…crazy. Enjoy HK though, hope you do manage to get lots of food and shoopping in!

      I know.. it’s a bit crazy :S It means one hell of a stop-list!

      I dunno if I’ll have time for eating/shopping in HK now… since I’m in the office every day, blah!

    I just got back from HK less than a week ago!
    My first thought was to say -go to the CL store (but then I realised you said food..)
    BUT Yung Kee on Wellington Rd in Central is famous for their Goose (it’s actually Michelin starred. We go there numerous time everytime we’re in HK..it’s fab). CL boutique is just around the corner too 😉 As is Landmark (like the Paragon of S’pore, but better :D)

      ETA: I’ve got more recs but depends how much time you have. Including…

      High Tea at the Peninsula (lengthy queues even on weekdays though)
      Temple St Night markets for hawker street seafood at bargain prices

        Heh the last time I was in HK I bought a pair of CL pumps.. so I better not do that again 😉 I live just down the road from that store though!

        Hmmm might try Yung Kee, it’s so close to me too!

      The Pawn serves British gastropub food…the Chinese place you’re thinking of is OVOlogue, which is right next door.

      And yes M At The Fringe is delish Bev! Will give you more recommendations when I see you tonight 🙂

    You have such a jet set life. You’ll figure it out, the first weeks, months are the difficult ones.
