Had a last minute Team Building trip to HK last weekend. It turned out better than I hoped for. Managed to squeeze some time to catch up with Amps & Chai on a Sunday afternoon. It was lovely seeing them after Cuba! We took a stroll down to Aberdeen to wind down with quite a Beverly Hills view.
Hong Kong didn’t change much since I was there 2 years ago. I didn’t have a good first impression of HK and it pretty much stuck even after my 2nd trip. But, oh wells. It was still a good break nonetheless. Mira Moon Hotel hosted us for 2 nights – such a lovely boutique hotel located within walking distance to the city centre. I like how the interior design is a fusion of modern and traditional Chinese art.
One of the best features of the hotel is the handy phone with data usage. This handy phone is meant for customers to use outside of the hotel premises – you can save money on overseas charges (which can be pretty exorbitant!). This makes getting around HK so much easier especially with the language barrier. I like how the surround system in the room can be easily paired to any devices via Bluetooth. Nothing like Bastille singing ‘Pompeii’ while you’re in the shower.
We went up to the Peak on Saturday to feast on Bubba Gumps for dinner… oh boy, wasn’t I famished after a day of fasting in hot, hot HK. The wait for the resto was impossible even with a reservation! But, I have to say the service was good and the food was even better. I enjoyed my sinful pan of chocolate chip cookie with ice cream dessert. Well, my favourite spot in HK is up at the Peak, away from the city crowd. The view at night is better than the day’s (previously, I went up in the day). The bus ride back down to the city was… let’s just say I was holding on to my dear life!
Annnnnd for most part of it, I enjoyed HK because it was our first overseas trip together and looks like, there are more to come. Love you most! 🙂
