Update

Posted by Miss Fong -

Hi everyone!!

First, thanks to everyone for a killer party last weekend!! I had a wicked time but I’ll never drink that much ever again!! Sunday was a total write-off :p

Anyway, the trip to HK went surprisingly smooth. First, after we handed over our apartment keys to the housing agent, we needed to call a taxi but the line was busy. Luckily though, our agent offered to drive us to Central Station in his minivan (so nice!)!! Next, we arrived at Schiphol with way too much luggage (expecting to pay another 150 euros or so for an extra suitcase of stuff) but at the check-in counter, we were told that we could both check-in 2 bags each!! (Usually it’s only 20kg each.) So, everything went in without any extra costs!!

Next, we flew to London, then to Doha, and switched over smoothly for the last 8-hr leg to HK. Both landings were ultra soft and we were in HK before we knew it :)

Apartment
As my dad was in HK for a month, he helped us look around for some apartments to live in. The one he and our family friends found is Harbour X which we have now signed up for 6 months.

One word: W-O-W. I thought I would miss our W'park apartment, but this ALMOST makes me forget that I ever lived in A'dam…

The perks:

  • indoor/outdoor pool w/ lifeguards
  • brand new gym with built-in TV sets
  • free towel service
  • free reading lounge with English/Chinese magazines
  • free massage chairs with side-mounted TV (20 mins each time)
  • free Wifi in CNN lounge
  • free umbrella service
  • 24-hour concierge and greeters at base of tower with bellboys (for carrying suitcases/groceries)
  • free steam room, sauna, Jacuzzi
  • private karaoke, party and banquet rooms, private cinema room, private games room, all for about 3 euros/hour
  • beauty salon with member packages

Our apartment is pretty sweet too. It’s about 60m2 with two bedrooms, a shiny new kitchen, bathroom with a small LCD TV screen integrated into the mirror, and large balcony. We’re only on the 3rd floor, but it’s still higher than our old place =)

It came unfurnished, so me and C have been busy running around HK looking for cheap yet stylish furniture everyday. We’ll let you know how it turns out!! :)
