[HONG KONG]Coming to HK 21st May 09 for 2.2 weeks....


Recommended Posts

Hi guys :)

Clairebear and I are coming over to Hong Kong :)

If there is a meeting or event we may pop over to it to say hello or bow to the Esprits :santa:

Cannot bring our Lotus with us due to size and weight but could bring a picture of it!

We will be staying at my brothers house in Sai Kung. He has a few cars and perhaps we will pop over in one of them; Aston Martin or Lamborghini Countach. Sorry he has no Lotus and thinks they are too che..... well, he means to say not serious and real enough... cheeky man!

Clairebear has never been to HK and is sooooo excited to be coming over. I was brought in HK so I better ensure that she has a good time by avoiding any car talk!

Hopefully we will see you there :P

21st of May is a Thursday.....hmmm...not much going on....until Sunday 24th 0f May,

as there is always the "LOK KING" sunday morning drive.

you will see alot of exotic cars gathering there, and enjoy a HK style "western breakfast"

(that's ham & egg with instant noodle, and a cup of silk milk tea)

we probably will arrange sight seeing for you two.

anything special that's interesting to you ?? (temples, shopping, harbour view, seafoods?)

*let us know what food we should avoid....hehe.....we can take you to eat snake or chicken feet if you want..

or you may consider to visit Macau or China, as both places have very unique local foods.

seriously, SZ is a fun place to be, and nightlife is equally exciting as HK. (you can buy one of those "SZ version iPhone for US$100...amazing copies!!)

Macau is famous for its history as colony of Portugal, thus alot of Catholic churches, and the Macau style Portugal cusine. + of course, the nick name "East's Las Vegas" (MGM, Wynns, and the Venetian are all here)

*P.S. so your brothers were the owner of the "white Countach" right?....(a member of the Classic car club?)

Many thanks Eric, sorry for my slow my response. Sooooo busy doing 'important' stuff that I forgot to check the forum!

Claire would love to see the culture in HK, not sure if we will do a trip to Macau or China. She is not into food as much but more into visiting a temple or two, famous market streets, places not too crowded by clickety clickers (snap snap snap photographers). She would like to be able to take some great photos. Food is not a big priority as to her its just food, what she want is the awh thats nice.... B)

My brother is rattling his brain pn where to take us and will be taking a week off to take us around. I am not sure if its first week or second week of the visit, most likely first week.

We certainly want to avoid food like snakes, cockroaches and chicken feet! She would be upset to see two little feet :w00t:

Closer to the time on as soon as we land I can call you and let you know what is happening. Be good to get a few pictures together.

See you and any others soon....

Btw my brother is the owner of the dark green limited 25th edition, the real cool one. In picture below note my brother taking real care and you can see part of the Aston on the right (in UK before being shipped to HK).

sorry for the late reply. No kidding about this weather . The rain always come during the weekend , I betcha will be sunny during the week when we are working.

This coming thursday is a public holiday in Hk , so maybe we can all get together on wed night for dinner and drink ...etc and don't have to worry of getting up early next day. So let us know if you can fit us in your schedule and me and Eric will try to get the other Esprit onwers to come out that night , by then hopefully it will be no more rain.

My company specialize in manufacturing all type of zippers, Eric's an interior designer and for the others let them tell you themselve when we meet up later.

We all try to go for a drive once or twice a months , but not every time we can get all Esprits out at the same time , either the esprit is in the garage ( which is quite common) or the owner are busy or out of town. Anyway, we will talk more when we meet up. Noted will try not to just talk about cars in front of the wife's.

hope to see your guys soon.

Interesting work you guys do.

I am looking at starting a small airport parking near Heathrow Terminal Five in London UK.

Today we went to Tsim Sha Tsui, ate at Gaylords and simply walked around.

Next Thursday we have to get up very early in the morning to go to the dragon boat race. My brother will be in China from Tuesday morning and not return till Wednesday evening. I am not sure what his or the plans are yet. It seems to change daily...

Probably easier to meet somewhere Tuesday or next weekend as it looks more promising next weekend weather wise....

Cheers.

Keep you guys posted on our movements....

Rain rain rain :hrhr:

Saw one of the smaller Lotus yesterday.

It seems Saturday and Sunday are going to be the best days with rain predication reduced to 30% and is the only chance we have to meet somewhere in the nice cars. I think Saturday is better and will let you know where we could meet, somewhere pleasant and 'open'.

Hi Gavman,

Welcome to the rainy HK. Let's come out for a drink.

My V8 is now at the garage changing the timing belt and fixing snaped bolts at the exhaust manifold.

Dragon boat racing is fun. If the weather is fine on Thursday, can have a ride on my fishing boat in Sai Kung.

I am running a buying agent business to source and manufacture products for US customers.

We can meet you in a bar for a drink tonight (Wedsnesday) evening if you like, or any other day.

Btw Lotus V8 are very nice.. and I like your colour.

See you for a drink.

Cheers

wed night for a drink , sound good . Where do you want to go? HK side lau kwun fong or kowloon tsui sha shui? Let me know by noon and I will try to get Eric and Mark to come out for a drink and chat.

I jealous of Raymond's yellow V8 too . Everytime we all go for a drive, people will look at his car and miss my silver color SE.

Dennis the V8 are great however the SE has more room for power management hence could be quicker :)

Clairebear would like it to be Tsim Sha Tsui because she wants to see view of HK by night (to take pictures). To make it easy for all (I think) we could meet at the new Starbucks on the waterfront near the 'Corridor of Stars'?

Say 7pm? Gives you guys time to get there after work? Coffe to wake or keep us awake then a beer afterwards....

Not sure what to do today but it looks brighter. Hmmmm, maybe the sun will come out....

See you all later..... (Raymond if you cant make it tonight we can see you in Sai Kung one other evening) and take you up on your offer for a ride on the boat (er should it be in the V8)....

Cheers

Gavman

Btw I have borrowed an old mobile and bought pay as you go sim card. At least we can be reached!

It is 975 648 13

You guys want to go early like 8 something or 9 something? if you want to see some nice cars , then we have to go there early like 7:00 or 8:00am. We can also drive to couple other places to do some sightseeing too .Leave a message or call me or I will call you later to fix on a time.

I think but the time you got this message, you probably talked with Raymond on the phone. So see what you or him had plan and talk later

Look forward to see you , your brother and clariebear soon.

nice to meet you, Gavman and Clairebear

Thank you very much for the BBQ party at your brother's place.

I envy him for his car collection!

Looking forward to see you again in about 5.5hours (Sunday Morning Drive) ...and I am still not sleeping, neither do I clean my Esprit.

My plan will be washing the car at 5:30am, then drive directly to the meeting..hehe

Time to go to bed! 88

P.S. wish I could find time to take you around, but I am really busy this period of time. But I am happy that you already have plan to visit China and many places, so that's good!
