Since our flight to Hong Kong didn't leave until midnight we stayed at the hostel until 4 o'clock watching TV, reading and playin around on the internet in their livingroom. Then we got picked up by an airport shuttle that took us to the airport. We should have just stayed at the hostel later because we waited in the airport for 8 hours until our flight, playing cards and reading. I (James) swear that I saw Kate Bekinsale at the airport! I told Jackie and wanted to go back with my camera but decided I didn't want to feel like a creep. Right before we boarded the plane I managed to spill a glass of beer all over Jackie’s pants which did not impress her very much considering we had an 11 hour flight to take and it looked like she wet herself!
Being on an airplane for 11 hours is bad enough but when your TV doesn't work for 10 out of those 11 hours it gets pretty upsetting; but they fed us twice so I guess that kept us happy. Then we had a two hour layover in Kuala Lumpur after which we almost missed our flight out because we were too busy on the computer to pay attention to the time; luckily though we got up and walked to the gate and noticed the final boarding sign on the screen, oops. Then another 4 hours to Hong Kong which went buy rather quickly (our TV's worked!).
Once we arrived in Hong Kong it took us a little while to figure out how to get to where we had to go by bus, but we eventually prevailed and arrived at our hostel around 4 o'clock. We walked around a little to get our bearings but went to bed early because it had been a very long day of travelling. Shortly after though we had a knock on our door and a girl from the front desk brought a guy in who was to share the tiny room with us!....we had thought we had it to ourselves so that was a bit of a shock, but the guy turned out to be sane and normal so it worked out to be ok.
