Random Tuesday Thoughts


Here's a few random bits I've picked up in Asia:

Every September 23rd in Hangzhou China is public transportation day. No one is allowed to drive a private car or you will be ticketed. Therefore it's really hard to get a cab unless you pay the driver to follow you around all day like we did.

Ruth Steakhouse in Hong Kong does not provide plastic ware, no surprise, it's probably below them. So on the way back to my room, I stopped by the buffet to request a set of silverware thinking it would be faster than going to my room and waiting for room service to deliver a set. I was wrong. They flatly refused to give me a set saying all buffet silverware needed to stay at the buffet and they would send room service to my room with a set. Silverware is compartmentalized!

My hotel room at the Royal Garden had a TV inset into the wall so I could watch TV while taking a bath! Unbelievable right???

Here is a 1000 year old turtle:
(okay he's probably not that old but all historic things over here seem to be referred to as 1000 years old)

I've seen TVs on these fancy bathtubs and even hot tubs on The Price Is Right. I always wonder, who wants to watch TV while bathing? If you plan to soak in the tub to relax, do you want to stare at the TV? No usually, right? That's something I don't see much use for.

Randoming with you,

Hi Cathy - I tried the bath one day and 5 minutes in I was done. It just didn't work for me.
