Birthday in Hong Kong

Not a Bad Way to Spend Your 35th Birthday!

overcast 25 °C

Happiness is waking in a clean bed, with a real bathroom on your 35th birthday ;o) Pleased to be in Hong Kong, we had an easy day. Lloyd had arranged a massage as a special birthday treat which was a great way to start the day, and the Chuan Spa at the Langham is easily the most luxurious spa I’ve ever been in (not that I’ve been in THAT many….). When I got back to the room, birthday cards and a box of British goodies (marshmallows, french fancies, biccies!) were waiting for me from my brother and parents!!! Very thoughtful, of course, but also quite impressive given that we changed our plans last minute and should have been in Shanghai today!


We stayed relatively local today, and took a stroll around some of the markets in the Mongkok area. We both needed haircuts badly, and Lloyd got a good trim while I had about six inches taken off to make it easier to deal with during our adventures. Clean and with neat hair for the first time in weeks, we enjoyed a late afternoon webcam with my parents - the first time we've had a decent connection anywhere. We later had dinner in the hotel restaurant, but not until the hotel had surprised me with champagne and birthday cake! Of course, Lloyd had ALSO arranged a birthday cake, so we ended up with more cake than we knew what to do with.
