I have been invited by Replay Interactive to be part of the Singapore team to attend the ‘Asia-Pacific Darksiders Media Preview Party’ taking place at Luxe Manor, Kowloon, Hong Kong so this morning, we set off on a 8.30am flight. This is not my first travelling overseas but it is my first to experience Hong Kong. I’ve heard many stories and recommendations to visit this country for holiday, but finally the opportunity is today. I started packing only last night at midnight – just took a couple of clothes and threw them into the luggage. I hope I did not forget anything…
The flight to Hong Kong is a little over 3 hours by Cathay Pacific. This is also the first time that my new biometric passport is being used since I applied for it last June. On board, I met the other partners – Zachary from Game Axis and Jamie and his team from Mega Media. As soon as we arrived at the airport, we were escorted to the Luxe Manor hotel via a ferry service. The ride took about 30mins. Along the way, I enjoyed the view of mountains and bridges that linked the islands together. I also learnt some of these islands are designated as a place of worship and burial grounds.
It was a little hard to snap pictures while inside the car, but I managed to get some, and you can view them in the photo album.
Once we reached Luxe Manor hotel, we met up with the Replay team as our registration for the rooms were being administered. My roomate has not arrived yet then, so I got a first taste of room we’re putting up for the next two nights. As soon as I opened the door, I was treated to a classy and sophisticated setup. It is magnificent.
Don’t believe? Take a look at the pictures.
About half an hour after I checked in, there was a delivery of a complimentary pastries to welcome us to the hotel.
Connecting to their WI-FI is easy. Within minutes, I was connected to their high-speed broadband internet.
…Stay tuned for next part.
