Well dinner was just amazing! After getting turned away from an exclusive Private Members Club restaurant where my friend Joyce had booked due to wearing flip flops or thongs as some call them, forgot my shoes in the UK due to the strict 20kgs allowance for two plus months travel not good. Only shoes I had was my walking boots which did not really go with my outfit..... Funny that.
Anyway after rushing to good faithful Marks & Spencers for a pair of flat shoes, we returned to the restaurant where we were greated and treated to free champagne as an apology for turning us away due to my footwear (clearly not something which would happen in the UK). Of course no complaints on our part........ plus the club has rules and I was very lucky that they held our table, whilst I went off shopping for shoes... Yes let's just say fingers crossed this is the start of my lucky phase in life.. long may it continue.
The restaurant was amazing, lovely setting amazing food and fantastic entertainment, which was just completely different and really nice to see, especially for someone like myself who has never been to hong Kong before.
Joyce if you ever read this! You certainly do not look your age.... you looked amazing, plus are an amazing person, who I feel very lucky to have as a friend. Thanks for showing me what Hong Kong has to offer, the lovely meal at the Private Members Club and the present which you brought me. You have a special place in my heart and I will never forget the kindness you showed me. When you visit London of course it will be my turn to repay the kindness to you and your family.
