I flew from Hong Kong to London last Thursday with Oasis. The flight was very pleasant indeed. We left Hong Kong’s wonderful airport, with free wifi throughout, around 1am, and landed early in London about 6:30am. The flight was about 13 hours, so you get a chance to sleep while arriving early in the morning. It’s pretty painless.
The airline itself was very impressive for a budget carrier. The flight cost £105. They served a light evening meal before turning off the cabin lights and a light breakfast shortly before we arrived in London. I hadn’t expected any food at all. Additional refreshments were available, and seemed reasonably priced. A can of beer was £2, most snacks were £1.
Overall, I was impressed, I’d definitely fly with Oasis again. Now they also fly to Vancouver from Hong Kong.
YouTube is an amazing source of entertainment. I’m just loving it. The internet here in Hong Kong is actually fast enough that you don’t have to wait for the video to load, and it’s uncensored, which is a breath of fresh air!
Goodbye Thailand, hello freedom of speech. Now to watch that controversial video of the King again…
I went water shopping this morning. It’s 4 or 5 flights of stairs to the ground, so we drew straws as to who would make the trip. I got to the supermarket and began comparing the $9 bottles of water with the $5 bottles (Hong Kong dollars that is, otherwise that’s just crazy expensive!).
To my delight, the $9 bottle said “Product of Scotland”. So in preparation for going home I bought two six-packs of 2L bottles for the great value price of only $66. A little taste of home in preparation for my return on Friday!
