Hong Kong in a jiffy (Part 1)
Posted on

Whatever is lacking in Manila, Hong Kong makes up for it.
We’re lucky that it’s only 1.5 hours away.
I do apologize for the lack of entries. Hong Kong is probably the only city where I can’t feel my legs after a day of shopping/walking. That’s because you can still buy something even though it’s 11 PM in Causeway Bay!

Jeroen and I left the house at 8:30 AM for an 11 AM Cathay Pacific flight.
The new business class seats are okay. I was happy to charge my gadgets during the flight.

But I prefer the old fishbone layout. I find it easier to sleep there.
Here’s the old business class

And the new business class

I heard that many passengers complained about feeling cramped in the old fishbone layout, while I personally like the feeling of being enclosed in a cocoon.
The bad news is: my fear of flying is back. It’s back with the full-blown anxiety when turbulence happens.
Good thing Hong Kong is only 1.5 hours away. I can’t say it enough.

We checked in the W Hotel because it’s right next to H&M at the Elements Mall.

We used to love this hotel, but it’s gotten old. Our bathroom showed corners with mildew, a defective bathtub drain, and a toilet stall that constantly needed air and odor management.
Tired, I took a delicious nap and wanted to stay in. But Jeroen and I had to step out for dinner.
We walked to the mall and ate in a place called Dondonya.
Jeroen had the curry katsu

and I had the beef wagyu bowl, which I was too hungry to photograph.
We did a little shopping at Kurachika (Porter store)

before checking out the queue for the Maison Martin Margiela with H&M opening at 8 AM the following day.
At 10:30 PM there were already a few brave souls in line.

I decided to get some sleep and ready to wake up at 5 AM, to be in line by 6 AM.

Jesus Christ, I forgot how ugly you are. Comme des Garçons really is wasted on you.

Love the shot of you looking up.  For a second, I thought you were floating.  I’m also glad they changed their fishbone layout – too cramped for broad shouldered guys like me.

not a ton of people here in MMM + H&M at Caesar’s Palace…I think they have most pieces, but did not see the bra-bodysuit. Am usually size 4 in clothes, but was a size 8 in theirs. Oh my… and now to diet!  Opening day, they served coffee and donuts to the people on queue.
