I'll have a Sampan, a wild monkey with some Hot chili's on the side...

Hong Kong Day 2 - the Yahoos and Mr T started their day at 2:45 in the morning. Those of us in the sorority room woke up at a blissful 6am. I was glad not to be in the Yahoo room. We spent the day touring the standard Hong Kong sites. Tram up to Victory Peak, Sampan Rides in the South China Sea, shopping at the Stanley Market, visiting the crazy priced jewelery store, and eating at the Bee Cafe (Aunt Bee photo to follow when I can figure out how to upload) followed by hot blinding chili sauce in the eye. Yep...the food was so good that not only did I inhale it I decided to apply it as eyeliner. My eye swelled, my face swelled, my nasal cavities swelled and my children's bladders emptied with laughter at me! Yes I think the whole restaurant and walkers by on the street were all watching me withering in pain and embarrassment.
I went back to the room to put the Yahoos down for a siesta and an ice pack for me. Mr T, Jinjit and KC trekked off to the 10,000 Buddas temple. (I will ask Linjet and KC to provide a guest editoral on their quite exciting afternoon jaunt) Tonight we head down to the Harbor to watch the Hong Kong light show on the water that makes Las Vegas look like a back yard party.

Thanks for keeping up the blogging. Wish we had time to see all those places. We only got a couple in during our trip there. When do you leave HK?

What fun! Sorry I missed your entertaining show and the nap ;) Hopefully everyone will sleep until the sun comes up this Sunday morning and you will have a smooth travel day to Nanjing.
There will be four of you I know, three adopting from XuZhou ("sway-joe") on Monday. What a wonderful day for you all!

For all those friends waiting for pics of the big event, my understanding is that the Tomato computer was accidentally fried. I have heard from another friend who is also in the province and witnessed the Tomato family Metcha moment. Hopefully a way will be found to post pictures of the happy occassion to everyone soon!
