Cathay Pacific wins top airline for 2005. I have never flown Cathay, as it’s one of the more expensive flights to HK, but if you can pay the price, it seems you will be one happy camper onboard.

And the London Tube is getting a helping hand from MTR to improve Tubes services, and upgrade. Wish they were over here to help with our train services.

An anti-smoking protest in HK from the entertainment industry.

Ling Leong, director of KC City that owns 11 mahjong parlours across the Chinese territory, said a ban would put them out of business as 90 percent of their customers as well as their staff were smokers.


I think banning smoking is good in restaurants, probably give some leeway to bars, clubs etc. In my opinion, eating while someone is puffing away is really offputting.

Finally, a little touristy thing for you all… Having a fun day in HK for $20.
