stay in HK I was living in 75 Electric Rd, Tin Hau. The flat was OK and
fully furnished (including internet access, phone line, microwave, TV,
DVD), albeit a little dark inside. It is conveniently located near the
Tin Hau MTR station and only three stops away from my work place in Admiralty.
Literally on the doorstep is Victoria Park, the largest public park on
Hong Kong Island. This is where many HK people come to go swimming, jogging,
skating, to play tennis, soccer or basketball or to practice Tai Chi.
On Sundays, crowds of Filipinas take over the park for the day simply
to enjoy each others company. And right next door to our appartment: Hong
Kong's best coffee shop "Pumpernickel". At least that's the
opinion of me and my former flatmate and we did our best to promote the
place amongst our friends. By the way, Pumpernickel is the name of a German
black bread variety.
A room with a view. Well, that may be a standard in Germany but it's most certainly not one in Hong Kong. Many rooms here don't even have a window and if they do these offer superb views on a dirty inner courtyard. In this flat, both bedrooms have windows and below you can see the view. The rest of our rooms, however, did not have proper windows. On the right, my two flatmates: Clemens from Leipzig who stayed until the end of July and Sven from Siegen, who arrived in mid-August to stay for a total of 6 1/2 months.
