Hong Kong

Filed under: Asia, Work — maryparadox @ 3:25 pm

I went to Hong Kong for the first time for work last month. The work wasn’t very exciting but the hotel was pretty weird. It was the W and it was super hip to the point of being obnoxious. There were some cool parts though:

The pool on the 87th floor (roof) of the W hotel and the view of the building next to it from the roof. Apparently the building next door is the 4th tallest in the world:

The view of the harbor from my window:

And the view of the harbor a couple days later from the breakfast buffet:

To give you an idea of the weirdness of the hotel here is the weird Alice in Wonderland whitewashed hallway:

Me at work in Hong Kong. This is a pretty accurate distribution of skin tone and gender at our company:

    • Good idea, I should totally bring some weird outfits and a tripod next time. There is even an all white phone and birdcage!
