Yat, Yee, Sam, Say ..Say phat in Cantonese? Its my Hong Kong PTR! In the wee hours of one October morning, before I even had my first caffeine fix . I found myself in front of a screen staring at an email. I might not have been rather awake but even I could string together the words Q-A-N-T-A-S-S-A-L-E. Yessiree a Qantas Sale. Qantas, the ever UNreliable Aussie National Airline Carrier, was advertising a 3 day or 72 hour sale. I looked at the fares to LA.... ...and the fares to Orlando...... And sadly moved away from the American continent .towards Asia. (Give yourselves full marks for guessing that I settled on ..) Hong Kong .......Here I Come! It was those magic 8s that did it for me. The advertised sale fare was $888. The number 8 (phat pronounced like but but with a soft b), in Cantonese is a spoken pun very similar to prosper or wealthy. How could I resist? I booked for end of March 2012 for a 10 day vacay, coinciding with school holidays in Melbourne. Welcome to another one of my PTR/TR threads! For those of you who are repeat offenders, get yourself into therapy pronto! For those of you that are newbies to one of my ramblings, dont despair. With luck, youll be in therapy pronto too. I wonder how many people come trawling in here looking to lurk on a PTR/TR??? But first things first. That most important task requiring paramount attention above all else has been taken care of. Anyone notice the bright new ticker? Oh .and Introductions. This trip will be undertaken by me and mine . Me: Ill be your tour guide .I hang out with the Gamers, Lasters, Photographers and lurk on the CB. Im sure youll find me in any of those spots. If you havent guessed by now, Im the shy and retiring kind. DS: He is 11 and Im proud to say that he shows every sign of being a Disnophile, providing rollercoaster rides are included. DH: He is not 11. He understands my love of Disney and happy to let me plan Disney vacays providing we pepper it with other activities. So .lets recap .PTR commenced; ticker created; introductions oh yes .disclaimers. Disclaimers. We are going on a vacation to Hong Kong (at least thats how I sold it to DH). This PTR/TR will not solely consist of Disney related stuff. Food porn is usually a feature in my PTR/TRs. Anyone who feels strongly about food should be eaten and not photographed please be aware that no correspondence will be entered into on this matter. Deviations and deviants off-topic are usually another feature. Dont worry its not you, its me (although it could be you .we just dont know for sure yet). Above all else .lurk if you must but I would appreciate you posting and providing input and feedback into our trip! Afterall How else am I going to get deviations and deviants? NO.....I mean FUN!! FUN!! I mean FUN!! I hope you stick around for this PTR/TR as always no seat belts required, feel free to keep your hands, feet and head or any other part of you outside the car and remember .no liability will be assumed by the writer at any time!
