Monday 25th November
It's been almost three years since I've been back to Hong Kong... This time I went with my brother Mr Stingy and my mother MummyGeek. My father DaddyChef decided to stay behind - asked him several times! Mr Stingy decided on the dates and I decided on the times and also a hotel to stay in. Although we have family in HK, it is actually more convenient for us to stay in a hotel as we go in and out near the city area, and they live on the outskirts of HK... I used lastminute.com this time as they had the best prices when I was booking earlier this year.
Usually we take public transport to Heathrow, but we decided to take a cab, and be only a few hours early. We used to get to the airport all hot and sweaty... Is it worth it for this break? Nah...

I LOVE Cathay Pacific. It's a Hong Kong airline. It's one of the cheapest but most efficient airlines I have been on. Boarding is different these days at Heathrow. Instead of having to queue a very long queue, they went in class and row order in which they started from the top and bottom, and left the middle people last. That actually makes sense, since there would be more people at the back than at the front... We were in the middle, so we were just behind premium economy. Not bad!
The seats were also comfortable. When I used to take this airline I would get squashed between my mother and Mr Stingy. This time round, I got space!! They've basically taken out the F seats to accomodate a wider seat... Oh how I wish budget airlines could do the same... At the back of the seat the TV screen was touch screen. Oh my such an improvement. It seems Cathay Pacific are moving along with the times. Thumbs up! (^_^)b... And here's what we had on the flight...
I had the Beef brisket cooked in red wine with mashed potatoes and veg. Oh wow!! This was so good. Nice and hot... I also had a white wine... why not ¬,¬"

Mr Stingy pointed out that Chek Lap Kok Airport (that's Hong Kong International Airport to everyone else) is a massive airport! Yes it is!!
