it's a bloggerful world

my original blogger friend kristi has met (like, actually MET) several of her blogger friends. she has even lived to tell the tale, although there have been some close shaves. if you follow that link you will find the chap in question to be quite harmless (despite appearances), AND is responsible for much of the fun we are having here in hong kong.

charlie's suggestions of where to go, what to do and see have been invaluable. i even heard my DH telling someone that charlie had gone 'above and beyond the call of duty' with his helpfulness.

anyway, i digress. a few short days before we left nz for hk, i 'met' michelle who just happens to be living here with her husband vince, and i figured it just too good an opportunity to pass up!

and so we met...

and look - they're normal!!! (sorry guys lol). they took us to one of their favourite restaurants. it was hidden deep inside this market.

szechwan pork is my new favourite chinese food.

michelle is doing lots of volunteer work here in hk, working with stray cats and vince is in IT for a PR company (or something that involves capital letters in groups of two - kidding vince!!!) michelle's blog (cat and muse) is on my right side bar - go say hello!

we talked for ages, then went our separate ways. i'm so glad we met. we had a great time with you guys!

Sue sorry I was away from computer access for a few days. Yes that is the restaurant in the Intercontinental Hotel- Harborside I believe. Yes expensive, but HUGE selection and variety.
