How to get there:

I am now getting quotes for the Airfare and Lodgings. Once the agency confirm I will send out the details to you. I have tentative book 10 seats such that we can get good pricing.

On a different track I am checking with my friends in HK on other possible lodging like non service apartment that might be cheap and good. Then we just need to concentrate on getting the cheapest Air Ticket.

If anyone have any further suggestions or resources on Air Ticket and Lodging, please do not hesitate to share.

What you need to do now:

1) Book your schedule: Apply leave. Thank god we only need to take one day. But it's hot holiday date, better book early k, in case your colleagues took the date and then u have to stay here and imagine. Ha.
2) Save money: We need enuf gold to enjoy the Shopping too. Ms. Chrissy says there is a Sale gng on there.
3) Stay Healthy: Eat more fruits, do more execise, don't get sick during the period. Suggest you can have more Salsa practices, or join one of the Salsa offsite events like blading, jogging, etc.
4) Practice hard: Don't loose face to the Hong Kongers
5) Confirm your attendance such that the neccessary logistics can be arrange.

Contingency Plan

Should the event be canceled. Maybe due to Typhoon or SARS or Avain Flu or any other funny things. There will be another Salsa event on National Day 9 August 2007. There will be a "Salsa and Fireworks Open House". Details will be reveal at a later date. Meantime, start to prepare for the Salsa Hong Kong Trip. We've been to KL, now to HK, next might be BKK or even L.A.. Let's make it a Singapore Salsarean World Tour!!! Ha Ha Ha.

Next destination, Hong Kong, here we come.


Regards

Hi JH,

A small request from me. Can you also please post the Salsa places in Beijing at the thread 'Consolidation of Salsa Places'? If you can find any. No hurry.

I'll be likely having a trip to Beijing in Sept. I will check out one or two places if I got the chance.


JH and Steven,

Btw, since you guys will be in HK from Thur onwards. Forget abt this place 'Latin Noche @ 1/5. I have 'been there done that'. A lively place but small. But still can go if the Salsa itch comes that day. ah haha

Yo Chrissy

Thank u very much for your suggestion huh. I think the guys after reading will hesitate even more to join the HK trip hahaha.

I love shopping too and dont mind joining the Gals for shopping. But the thing is I need to visit my childhood friends. I got to know some of them since the age of 5. Since I am all the way there, really need to pay them a visit. If not they will say I "Bu Guo Peng You". I think the gals will agree that I should spend time with my childhood friends rather than too much time "carrying" stuffs right? :-)

Hmm, maybe I can teach them some Salsa, then we can have Salsa in Disney Land. Hahaha.

Huh? Salsa in Disney Land? Who are these people? They are my good friends Micky, Minnie, Donald, Goffey, Pluto, etc la hahaha. Hmm I might drop by the Castle and visit Cinderella too. New house, must warm it mah. Wa, then I better learn Waltz, cos I remember she only dance waltz but not salsa. Or maybe I should start teaching her salsa, then in future you will see Cinderella dancing salsa on tv. Cool huh? Hahaha

Maybe should bring one of the gals to teach her the ladies steps. Hahaha.

Salsa in Disney Land. Cheers.

By 29 June 2007 we will have the confirm attendance. Anyone who can confirm will book a seat.

The cheapest travel FAE plan I have so far is JestStar with a 3 Star Hotel of one of the following:

Hotel Location: Price:
1) Tatami Hampton Hotel Hong Kong Kowloon: Mongkok HKD 250
2) Anne Black YWCA Hong Kong Kowloon: Mongkok HKD 260

About SGD 26 per person


I would recommend the following cos the location is very good and the hotel is clean and safe:
a) Ramada Kowloon Hotel Hong Kong Kowloon: Tsim Sha Tsui HKD 420
b) Garden View - YWCA Hotel Hong Kong HK Island: Central District HKD 700
c) Salisbury YMCA Of Hong Kong Kowloon: Tsim Sha Tsui HKD 803

About SGD 42 to SGD 80 per person

I am ok with any hotel of the above. Anyone have any comments?

Targeted stay:

Some of us will be flying there on 8 Aug means 4 nights
Some can join us on 9 Aug, 3 nights.

Please share your thoughts.


Regards

Steven Tan

Hi

Update 2 July 2007:

Total (include Hotel and Airport tax):

$730 for 4 days 3 nights
$795 for 5 days 4 nights

Flying SQ as all other "cheaper" airlines too popular, prices went up higher than expected. We pay another $30 to see "Singapore Gal" instead hahaha.

Hotel is Kowloon Seaview Hotel, in town, very convenient for shopping and dancing.

This is the cheapest package can get.

Please confirm by today 2 July 2007. Thank-you.

Hey Yo Guys and Gals

Thanks for some of the response that you people give along the way. Anyway our trip is confirm. For those of you who drop out halfway due to cannot take leave, budget, etc. Just to have the Salsarean spririt, if u need to get anything from HK, let us know. I cannot promise you that I can get everything for you. But I swear that I will try my best to find for you.

To help me to help u, please specify:

1. Where exactly to get it
2. What is the exact shape and size (pic) if possible
3. What is the price you want to pay for it

No dangerous item or "duplicated" version or bulky item please.

And if you notice I say "it" means one item only per person.

And also if you confirm can get it one, please pay us first to ensure we have enough liquidity.

I will remember to bring some "Lao Po Bing" for those who want to eat already and get "Lao Po". Provided Union let us eat inside there.

And we look forward to the next destination where you get Salsa with a thousand smile :-)

Ok take care. Cheers.

Hi Thumbelina

Yes of you opt to join now there probably is still a chance. I have checked with the agency yesterday cos another of my friend is joining. They told me we have miss the advance booking. However, those who would still like to join us can pay an extra of $20 such that she can get the tickets from other source, another agency instead of SIA directly. Please let me know if you are interested. Thank-you.
