New Year’s Eve in Hong Kong: Day 1

Notice how day 1 (and first hour) began with decidedly the most important thing to do in Hong Kong?

We know our priorities and we set them straight.

The weather was in the range of 9-15C and while I thought I missed the cold (harking back to my times in Wisconsin and Seattle), I’d really rather be indoors energizing my body with hot dim sum and sipping tea.

Say Hello to Tony, our furry, amiable, and charming personal butler. He’s never without a smile!

The view from the 50th floor of the Island Shangri-la Hotel. It’s much prettier in person!

There’s always time to enjoy some hot tea while stretching out our legs on the sofa.
