Hold on a minute? Nothing special?? I am going to one of the top beaches in the world (the internet said so), where I am going to be snorkelling, possibly diving, pina-colada-ing and s.l.e.e.p.i.n.g for five days. All this with 5 of my top buddies in HK.

(I am secretely hoping that David-the-Hoff-Hasselhoff might be planning a vacation there too).
