A few weeks ago, I was lucky to have a short holiday in Hong Kong.  Unlike my previous trip, where I had planned every detail down to the last microsecond, this time I was much more relaxed (ok, to be completely honest, aside from booking the hotel in advance, I was basically doing research for the trip on my way to the airport).  But since the main point of the trip was for relaxation, I kept reminding myself not to get too worked up about anything and to just go with the flow.  You might be wondering, why choose Hong Kong for a relaxing experience?  Wouldn’t a more serene location be a more obvious choice?  There is method to my madness. One reason that I chose Hong Kong was that it’s incredibly convenient. It’s only about an hour and a half away by plane, and public transportation is incredibly convenient once you are on the ground. Those two factors are ingredients for a relaxing vacation already.  And you can find little pockets of serenity in Hong Kong too! Last time, my little slice of peace and tranquility was while wandering around Lugard Road.  This time, it was breakfast on the 49th floor of the Upper House, at Cafe Grey Deluxe.

I arrived quite early in the morning, and the entire place was empty, save for a few business meetings here and there.  I felt a even stronger sense of being “in holiday mode” when I overheard some of the wheeling and dealing going on in those meetings!
