This morning, we only managed about 2 hours sleep before having to be up at 5am to leave for the airport. Kumar said goodbye to us in his boxers and we caught a taxi to Changi airport.
The airport, like the rest of the city, was impressive.....so clean and very high tech. It was massive as well but we were all too tired to take it all in. Fortunately this flight was only 3 hours.
In Hong Kong, again we got a taxi, this time to the Knight Garden, Rent-a-Room, Hostel in Jordan, Hong Kong. Our room is quite nice, its just the three of us with a t.v and an ensuite.
In the room we were looking through the tourist leaflets when i stumbled across an evenbt listing....philarmonic orchestra, some chinese band....28th Nov...KANYE WEST PLAYS A ONE OFF GIG IN HONG KONG!! i could not believe it so we made a few phone calls inquiring about tickets and left for Hong Kong city on the MTR.
The city was really interesting and vibrant. We eventually found the ticket office and purchased ourselves some Kanye tickets, well 3, and then bought some cooked chicken for dinner. It is not easy to communicate here as very few people speak English...i was surprised.
Back at the room my mum rang our direct line, we watched back all video footage so far on the big T.V which was hilarious, and now Whitey and i have come on the internet to write my diray and we are speaking to Ellie Dez on msn. We are shattered!
