Just found out that I neglected to publish the post below before heading off to Hong Kong. Now returned so thought that I would publish anyway and then do a recap.
"Just putting together final preparations for our visit to Hong Kong tonight. This is the long anticipated return to HK for the Lions rugby game against the Barbarians which forms the first leg of the Lions tour to Austraia. Dad was trying to decide which sporting event he would like to go to as part of his 80th bithday celebrations and finally plumbed for this game as it combined an opportunity to watch the Lions with a return to some old haunts next to the South China Sea. I had been back in HK last December on business and we had also stopped off en route to Hua Hin in thailand for our Easter hols last year with the family so I have been back a cople of times reasonably recently. However, this will be Dad's first visit since we left HK during Christmas 2009 so we are all very much looking forward to it (his Cousin J is also coming along).
Apart from the rugby, I have booked the Stable Bend terrace for some food and racing at Happy Valley on Wednesday night (the Stable Bend was the venue for our first visit to Happy Valley with Mum and Dad when they visited us when we first arrived in HK in 2004)and we are also due to spend an afternoon in Macua as well as catching up with some old friends so it promises to be an action packed few days."
