Our annual event took place three years in a row in Hong Kong, I felt hotel charges were the highest level in three years. My friend, Ishikawa said Hong Kong's hotel charges have been jacked up by increase in tourists from mainland China. Even Evergreen Hotel which is one of Kowloon's budget hotel would cost me HK$500, I upgraded the hotel in this year.
After checked in the hotel, I went to 3 Hong Kong for purchase 2G Rechargeable SIM Card with Ishikawa. So I bought his used mobile phone for calling to my overseas friends in Thailand and Laos. I approved this SIM card because its recharge can be done via internet with credit card.
In the evening we went to Ishikawa's favorite Rainbow Seafood Restaurant for dinner. Our member was all five person; apart from Ishikawa and me, Mr. and Mrs. Yamamoto, and Miss Yamamoto who is Ishikawa's friend. In this restaurant we chose favorite fishes from aquariums, and then got them cooked. After dinner we went to Temple Street for eating Bo jai faan (a bowl of rice topped with various cooked foods) and sweets as well as last year. So we possibly repeat the same activities next year, right?
