Hong Kong 9-16 July

Moz had been posted to Hong Kong for a week, from today till 16 July ... for some corporate brainwashing training.

Can someone explain to me why it's actually cheaper to fly to Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific instead of MAS? It's an outrageous 30% more ... I can't even help out our national carrier - the company simply won't allow it!

So, it'll be pineapple tarts, butter & milk on toasted bread and yin yueng (coffee +tea) for a week. I'm looking forward to some time with some old friends and colleagues, and fabulous food, plus a bit of R&R while up there in Hong Kong.

Eric promised me I'll be getting drunk ... I just want fab wantan noodles and roadside Shark's Fin (look away Pelf, look away ... pretend you didn't read it ...). And I also look forward to going to a wet market for local food with Raymond.

The foot's ok, but only when medication is in effect, so I look forward to at least a bit of shopping. With the unfavorable exchange rate, and the fact that it's summer sale (which means winter clothes are on sale) ... I'm not sure I'll be shopping all that much.

Will still blog from time to time ... maybe I'll make a Hong Kong Top Ten ... so please check this blog from time to time ...

I'm hoping to catch the World Cup Finals from the pub heaven that is Lan Kwai Fong or Kowloon ... here's hoping to a great final, no matter who wins, France or Italy.

OK. Now that you said you're NOT going to eat sharks' fins (OR that you're going eat fake ones)..

Cathay Pacific is cheaper bcoz it's HK's national carrier. I so wanna try their pork chop bread.

moz monster said...

papi: I've realised from the latest fare schedules I've got that I'm getting the best prices from everyone except MAS. Everywhere I fly (except Singapore and Thailand), it's cheaper to fly with some other airline .... =(

Ah ... I tried the pork chop bread ... yuuuuuummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy
