Hong Kong - Visa Trip

In order to get a working visa, I had to leave China and get it in another country. Hong Kong is the closest most convenient place, so it's where everyone goes. Airplane food on the way over.

My hotel was the Ramada on the right. Pay per view porn channel pamphlets on the table beside the bed, pay per view porn advertisements on the television when I turned it on. Definitely a bit different from China, where that shit does not fly. The restaurant in the center offered homestyle heavy carb-laden meals.

A closer look.

Bought a meal there. Unfortunately, most of their meals seemed rather stodgy, but the value was pretty good for Hong Kong.

Their coffee. This came free with the meal. Too bad it had milk in it, why do people do that to their coffee? What do I care, I don't drink coffee anymore anyway.

Free wireless internet in Hong Kong was hard to find, Macdonalds was the easiest place to find it. Decided to get breakfast there one day.

How can a business sell slop that looks like this?

Thankfully, I found another cafe underneath Macdonalds which had better coffee and unlimited free wireless, not the half hour affair they had at McD's.

Decided to splurge out and try the apple pie. Tasted mostly like nutmeg or cinnamon. Not very appealing.

Went back for breakfast another day. The eggs were still raw on top, with raw whites.. ewww. And the rest was a token endeavour, got about six beans.

A shot of the visa office. I waited a bit before I went in. It was a pretty painless affair.

Can't wait till next year, although I think I will go to Outback Steakhouse everyday, not just once..
