China Trip – Day #11 – Hong Kong

unclechai
We always get to see Uncle Chai when we’re in HK (he’s the tall guy), my Mum was best friends with his late wife.

And that’s a wrap! Sincerely had some pretty amazing food here in HK the past 2 days despite posting about how much I dislike this place. I know the produce we have in Australia is some of the world’s best, but the culture, the cooking techniques, they seem to forgo the need for the best produce as I’ve had the best fried rice I’ve ever had on this trip, the best noodles too.

I hit the ground running tomorrow. I’ve not been this excited in a while! That electric/obsessive compulsive nature of mine is back with a vengeance! This morning Mum and I went through the ZEN Garage online shop, literally every item is out of stock and man, was it a HUGE shock. I truly did drop the ball last year. I don’t intend to buy another car to replace the Golf, instead I just want to put it all into stock, and basically reboot ZEN GARAGE. 2018, it’s my year. I’m pumped!

The trip has kinda fallen apart here in HK. Where we were all staying in the same hotel in China, and boarding the same tour bus every day and doing everything together, we’re split up over 3 different hotels here in HK, and there’s no tour bus either. Everyone seems to have contacts to catch up with whilst they’re here (or shopping!), which has seen some people skip family dinners (myself included the other night when I drank a little too much before dinner in the hotel room!!!).

We lost a day in transit today. Everyone was moving super slow due to lack of sleep, and we’ve got a pretty big group so it almost got testing. We spent most of the morning trying to get on a plane in China, and once we finally landed in HK we got stuck in hardcore traffic as the streets were blocked off for a protest of some sort, the traffic was so bad that we didn’t get to our hotels by dinner time.

I’m not a huge fan of HK. I’ve visited Hong Kong more times than any other country I’m pretty sure, mainly because Mum and Dad used to take my sister and I every single year for one of their 2 business trips (Mum used to own a couple of high fashion stores in the CBD back in the day). When I was a kid I hated it that I couldn’t speak Chinese, just made me feel dumb, still does!
