Today I started the day with a phone call to the dentist. My tooth has gotten worse and my bet was that I'd better do something about it now in Hong Kong rather than ending up having to do it in Vietnam or Cambodia. They called me back about 30min later asking if I could come in 1hr.

At the dentist he took x-ray of my full set of teeth, and checked my teeth. He couldn't find anything wrong, but he said that when I got back home I had to get a full check. He gave me some antibiotics and hopefully that would make things better. So now I'm on them, hoping that it won't screw up my stomach more. But hey, if my stomach is full of bacterias from Central-America, I'm getting rid of two things at once;)

After the dentist, Arild met up with me and we went to Ocean Park. It's a theme park in HK. I didn't really have an expectations towards it, but different people had said it's good, so we hope so. And the be honest it was a great disappointment. It had a couple of rides, a lot of weird stuff to look at. The highlight was a panda, and that was about all that was good in the park. If we had a park in HK we would have made a more Asia feel over it. I don't get that people from HK and tourists can be happy with that park. Or maybe it's just us knowing that Disney World exists;p
One more thing to complain about with the park is that when you work at a park like that, that includes a lot of tourists it should be expected to have a sertant level of English knowledge. The girl at one park sent us to the other entrance while at the other entrance they sent us back....

Didn't matter anyway, we took a taxi down to Jumbo Kingdom. A big floating restaurant. You have to take a small ferry out to the restaurant. We had ordered a table and I don't think that the girl liked us wearing runnin shoes. From what I could see the place look pretty posh. The menu was as well very well formed. Arild and I ate for the first time weird stuff, like sea cucumber and bird nest. We had as dessert a weird tasting herb pudding which neither of us fancyed. I think arild enjoyed the food more than me, and it was a really good restaurant;)

Took a taxi back to downtown where we walked around for a while and I ended with buying a pair of diamond ear rings and a diamond ring. I'm very pleased with the purchase. Back home we packed our stuff and are all ready to leave HK with next destination Vietnam and Hanoi...
