It is half past midnight! I am staying at the Harbour View International House on Harbour Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong. Ahmed Didi and I arrived in Hong Kong in the late evening yesterday to attend HOFEX. Our hotel is just a few minutes walk from the exhibition centre. And very luckily we have also got a harbour view room. Our room is 1110. The room is small but deluxe.
We walked across and over to the landside in search of food yesterday. We had dinner at a Turkish outfit amongst the pubs and the night clubs. And this evening we had dinner at an Indian outfit alongside the same road. I had a biryani, ofcourse!
This is a 21 storey hotel building. We had breakfast this morning at a small outfit just two blocks from the hotel. We paid over HK$50 for just two scrambled eggs with a thick half loaf of bread and just butter [no jam!]; and a coffee and tea. Food is very expensive, so I have to wonder twice before ordering something.
Hopefully I will have more to say about Harbour View and HOFEX and Hong Kong before I leave!
