Re: needle and thread

Go around the side streets and alleys and there is bound to bea seamstress in the street or a tailor shop around. Ask them for needle and thread or give it to them to sew. Cheers Tommy x

Hi, Thank you I will give it a try.

Great idea, Tommy!

I ALWAYS carry a sewing kit (saved from previous hotel stays) in my toile bag (even in MY!). LOL!

Re: needle and thread

by JohntheFinn

Look around your hotel room for a sewing kit. They are standard issue in that part of the world, but sometimes they hide them. If it's not in the bathroom along with the complimentary shampoo and stuff, it might just be in the folder on the desk or bedside table.

Really?? Wow! I must look in all those places next time! ;-) LOL! Thanks for the tip!:-D

What I've experienced is that sometimes they don't dish it out (even MAS doesn't place complimentary toothbrush/toothpaste in the plane's toilet drawers anymore) - you just have to call housekeeping for it, like I did in Santiago.. Did you try that? ;-)

Travel Tips for Hong Kong

Weather in May

by John6868

Below is the weather report for last May.
This should give you an idea what to expect.

"The Weather of May 2007
May 2007 was warmer and sunnier than usual. The mean temperature of 26.4 degrees was 0.5 degree above normal. The total bright sunshine duration of 183.4 hours was about 19 percent above normal. It was also slightly drier with a monthly rainfall amount of 288.3 millimetres, about 9 percent below normal. The accumulated rainfall since the beginning of the year was 477.9 millimetres, about 22 percent below normal for the same period.

The weather in Hong Kong was generally fine under the influence of a ridge of high pressure on the first three days of the month. The weather turned cloudy with some rain on 4 and 5 May when a trough of low pressure over southern China moved cross the coastal areas.

The weather became fine and dry on 6 and 7 May as another ridge of high pressure established over southern China. The relative humidity dropped below 40 % during the day. In the following ten days, it was generally fine and hot apart from a few brief showers on 16 and 17 May. It was also hazy on 13 and 14 May.

The weather deteriorated later on 18 May when a trough of low pressure developed over inland Guangdong and moved across the south China coast. A squall line swept across Hong Kong from northwest to southeast that evening, bringing heavy showers and severe gusts to the territory. Peak gust over 100 kilometres per hour was recorded at Waglan Island. In Tin Shui Wai, four persons were injured when more than 20 stacked containers collapsed in gusty winds. With the tough of low pressure lingering along the south China coast, there were heavy showers and thunderstorms between 19 and 22 May. During the heavy downpour on 20 May, two landslips and 15 cases of flooding were reported.

Sunshine returned on 23 May when the trough of low pressure weakened. Under the influence of a southerly airstream, it was hot with sunny periods in the next three days.

The weather became unstable with heavy showers and squally thunderstorms on 27 May, but improved with some sunny periods in the following day. Under the influence of a ridge of high pressure over the coastal areas of Guangdong, it was fine, clear and hot on 29 and 30 May. Apart from a few showers in the morning, the weather stayed mainly fine and hot on the last day of the month."

Enjoy your stay.

Symphony of Light

by picek

Not sure if it's my favourite thing in HK, it is indeed eye catching experience. It starts 8 pm every day and it's best to view it from waterfront promenade (Avenue of Stars) in Kowloon towards HK Island. It involves altogether 44 building at both side of Victoria harbour, though.
Looks like if laser light had just penetrated into the atmosphere and the show takes one hour or so if I remember right. It's also good view from star ferry but not if you want to take pics there... shaking too much for a camera.
No need to tell that it's free of charge...

Rock hard.

by Princess_Emily

Your sitting in your seat, seatbelt fastened, patting yourself on the back for not spending any extra money on food when a meal will be served in flight, the Captain is announcing the flight will only take 10 hours today due to a fast moving jet stream, your getting excited, and then you notice it, it's rock hard, what do you do? Play with it until it gets soft? NO! Put it under your main course tray before opening your meal, the main course tray is hot enough that after just 2 minutes the frozen rock hard butter tab will be soft enough to spread on the roll that is included with the meal.
