After the media event (on Saturday 10 Oct), Replay Interactive and all the media partners got together for dinner and city sightseeing.
We took a nice evening walk that lasted about 15mins. It didn’t feel long or tiresome because we were walking as a group and Kowloon is quite a sight to behold at night. Neon lights, large colourful and illuminating billboards decorate most buildings. The outside temperature was also quite right. Not too cold or humid.
Mr Eric Heng was a great host at the dinner. He was sensitive to the guests’ needs and made sure they’re catered for to the best possible. There were a lot of food served and it was almost like a family reunion gathering.
After the hearty dinner, we took a stroll at the pier to the jetty, just in time to board the last ferry service of the day from Tsim Sha Tsui to Wan Chai.
Unfortunately, I do not have a powerful digital camera to capture some of the best city skyline sights.
From Wan Chai, we split into groups into various cabs to Lan Kwai Fong, said to be one of the hottest places to experience the vibrant night life in Hong Kong. I learnt that the district is just a small stretch of road but it was packed with party revvers.
We chose to chill out at The Fevar Club.
Fevar Club is hip, and Replay Interactive team got all of us tickets with free flow of drinks. After leaving our belongings at the concierge, we grabbed our desired drinks and lazed at the comfy lounge seats. The party was slow at first, but as more people joined in, the music got better and the crowd started to party.
We stayed at the club past midnight, but just before we were about to leave, the club was raided by the local police. According to what we were told, this is quite common and is done to spot drug traffickers. Unfortunately, the way it is conducted is a bit weird. A few officers in undercover clothes spread out to keep watch at every corner and they kept telling the crowd to be silent. I dont know about the people in Hong Kong, but over in Singapore, it is not easy to ask a crowd of adults to shut up. Some drunk visitor or ‘those who thinks they’re above the law’ will just continue to chatter away. Even the DJ was not able to keep everyone down through the public address system.
The ‘raid’ lasted almost 45 minutes and when it’s all over, most of us decided to leave. We split into groups and took cabs back to the hotel.
I thought I was collapse in bed but after a shower, I managed to keep awake for another hour, and by the time we doze off, it was almost 4am.
