Iโ€™ll be in Hong Kong from November 7th. If any nomads there and would like to meetup feel free to let me know ๐Ÿ˜Š
majkp23 3mo
nice! anybody there? I may visit later this month. Let me know how was it after arrival and border control ๐Ÿ™
knocte 3mo
I'm here! we could go for coffee sometime
lmavaiya 3mo
Hey Friends,

For hongkong alternatives of Airbnb?
markooo 2mo
Woah, I didnโ€™t realize itโ€™s 0+3+4
markooo 2mo
So you gotta take like 11 tests total
markooo 2mo
from 21/11 only 2 PCR tests, on arrival and on 2 day (arrival is day 0)
majkp23 2mo
on day 2 you have PCR
majkp23 2mo
from my questionnaire
knocte 2mo
that's what he said if "2 day" == "day 2"
majkp23 2mo
ah!
markooo 2mo
Yeah my bad meant day 2
majkp23 2mo
got it ๐Ÿ‘Œ
akashg 2mo
Just to be clear do you need to do all these test if you are fully vaccinated (referring to the messages above)? I was thinking of doing a 2/3 day stopover in Hong Kong but it sounds like it might not be worth the hassle
markooo 2mo
Yes
knocte 2mo
right, being fully vaccinated hasn't ever made a difference
knocte 2mo
I don't recommend a 2/3 day stop-over, you wouldn't be able to get into any venue, just walk around the city and malls, no bars, no restaurants, nothing
akashg 2mo
Thanks for confirming peeps! Yeah I decided skipping over it! Booked some flights last night so Iโ€™ll be doing a layover for 3 hours at Hong Kong airport instead now on my way to Japan ๐Ÿ™‚
akashg 2mo
I heard they have some nice lounges at the airport so at least Iโ€™ll get to check that out ๐Ÿ˜…
eusden 2mo
Just got locked in for quarantine because I tested positive from the test on the airport.

The result is a 7 day quarantine for being fully vaccinated (in the hotel room because I picked a hotel that accepts quarantine just in case). If not vaccinated, itโ€™s 14 days.

They came the evening after I got the positive result and tagged me with a wristband and dropped off a bunch of masks and tests. On both days 6 and 7 if I test negative (self test), I am free to go.

Stay healthy everyone!
knocte 2mo
but the masks are still with us ๐Ÿ˜‘
angel 2mo
Don't worry, you can buy one at any 7 Eleven ๐Ÿ˜œ
markooo 2mo
Lovely to be back!
markooo 2mo
Stoked that I landed today vs yesterday
markooo 2mo
From my experience landing today 14/12
markooo 2mo
1. Do the QR thing before departure, just basic health info, vaccination and promise that youโ€™ll do a rapid test (this isnโ€™t checked)
markooo 2mo
2. After landing que to have your QR scanned, get a lanyard and go to station to do oral swab test, done (took 30 mins total)
markooo 2mo
3. Go to the website (they give you a paper with link) and download your own QR thing that youโ€™ll need in the city. My test was negative (got sms / email like 1h after taking it), therefore when I arrived in the city (about 2h after landing) could already use it to enter restaurant
markooo 2mo
Not sure if weโ€™ll have to take PCR or rapid tests, but overall everything was pretty quick and easy
knocte 2mo
I hate masks man, if they don't scrap them at least for outdoors, I'm leaving HK
knocte 2mo
what do you mean with "isn't checked"? I landed Monday and I have to submit picture of my RAT test everyday into a website
knocte 2mo
rather not to misinform, or you may lead others to be subject to fines (or even prison like those Cathay staff that ignored regulations)
markooo 2mo
more detailed info in this article
markooo 2mo
cpjbnbmg the Pre-departure self-swab ART test isnโ€™t checked so itโ€™s basically just honor principle
markooo 2mo
ttrlohyy so yes, youโ€™ll still need to do RAT/ART self-test(s) and upload a photo of the test, this may be checked but anecdotally it seems like nobody cares
knocte 2mo
yep, they didn't check my first self-swab before landing the plane, but just in case, I'm submitting my daily RAT results pictures
knocte 2mo
I don't understand how can someone like chachanteng's food ๐Ÿ˜›
markooo 2mo
Australia Dairy Company

markooo 2mo
Have you been awptgawv ?
knocte 2mo
I've been in many chachantengs , I've lived here many years, I just can't stand them
knocte 2mo
it's the most disgusting and unhealthiest food IMHO
The news is reporting a major loosening of COVID restrictions by the CCP. Has anything changed in Hong Kong? Is it cool to visit again yet?
markooo 1mo
yodnczyn thereโ€™s all sorts of chachaanteng, from disgusting to nice
markooo 1mo
Australian Dairy Company is nice
markooo 1mo
Scrambled eggs and toast with butter is loved around the world, also not as unhealthy vs most fried and processed fast foods
markooo 1mo
And itโ€™s an experience, at ADC your order is literally ready in less than a minute lol plus the staffโ€™s vibe/attitude
markooo 1mo
plus cheap
knocte 1mo
bndnzulijithkm you can arrive and finally enter restaurants without needing to wait 3 days, however still masks are mandatory (even outdoors), and if you test positive in your PCR test done in the airport, you will be sent to quarantine for 5 days or more
knocte 1mo
so I wouldn't recommend it just yet
markooo 1mo
Plus, the vibe has changed, i.e. gotten a lot worse than before 2020 and weather is meh at the moment
markooo 1mo
A lot of the character has gone, things are more sterile in a bad way yet the major socioeconomic + political problems are still there and have even gotten worse
markooo 1mo
usbuatupgevgdl Go to Taiwan instead, better in every way. No quarantine, testing, vaccine requirement and recently no more mask mandate either.
markooo 1mo
(maybe some testing, but not like they do here in HK)
etc 1mo
the vibe in HK has been on a decline for decades
etc 1mo
when I grew up in NT, it used to be insulated from it a bit, but HK is nothing more than a sterile, international financial city now
knocte 1mo
if you ask me, I would love that it is an international financial city, but it's not even that anymore
markooo 1mo
Even the worst Singlish speaker in Singapore still speaks better English than the average person here
elpol 1mo
this is probably the worst looking food I've ever seen in Asia, no offense ๐Ÿ˜‚
knocte 1mo
hahaha exactly, finally someone understands me
markooo 1mo
So superficial ๐Ÿ˜‚
markooo 1mo
Dim sum looks equally gross imo but super tasty
knocte 1mo
you're there for the Omakase Toy, don't deny it
markooo 1mo
ADC is an institution
markooo 1mo
Probably among the fastest time to be served worldwide
markooo 1mo
And itโ€™s a great way to meet people, because youโ€™ll be seated right opposite and next to strangers
knocte 1mo
most ppl dining in chachantengs are old grannies
knocte 1mo
and for eggs and toast I prefer to make them at home
markooo 1mo
rexgbjlx Same, but they just hit differently at ADC. Definitely canโ€™t make as good dong leng cha or nai cha. I invite you for brunch there sometime
elpol 1mo
yfemesyr exactly... I can make a better eggs & toast than those pics with my eyes closed probably ๐Ÿ˜‚
markooo 1mo
twnobtc If you haven't been to Australia Dairy Company you don't know, they're just different and really tasty. There's something about them.
markooo 1mo
Plus they've been consistent over the years and whenever you go, even at peak busy hour you will receive your eggs in front of you in like less than a minute after ordering
knocte 1mo
if it's even faster than McDonalds' fast food, I wonder about the quality
knocte 1mo
nznmlhflo thanks for the invitation, but I'd rather reply with a counter-invitation to a much better place; e.g. my fav Thai resto in Soho, if u fancy
markooo 1mo
wyhmsnhx what's the name of the place? maybe I know it. have you been to this indian spot?
knocte 1mo
vegetarian? what's wrong with meat? it looks to have all carbs-based dishes face_with_peeking_eye
knocte 1mo
the Thai in Soho is called Thai on High Centrestage by Kea
markooo 1mo
I avg. 3 rib eyes/week, nothing wrong with meat.
markooo 1mo
It's a nice legit Indian place, spacious by HK standards, relaxed atmosphere
knocte 1mo
TBH I'm not saying that being vegetarian is bs; what it seems from the pics of that indian place is that most stuff is carbs based
knocte 1mo
I love veggies but I would never eat in a resto where everything is mostly rice and bread etc
knocte 1mo
(that is a cheap and nasty way of being vegetarian)
markooo 1mo
ivwvejos I guess it's a cultural thing about Indian cuisine, lots of vegetarian
markooo 1mo
wcppmaes let me know when youโ€™re free, letโ€™s grab lunch. Btw, no need to โ€œinviteโ€ me though, Iโ€™ll pay for myself
knocte 1mo
let me get a rain check because these days I'm quite busy, in 3 or 4 weeks I'll be golden
leerosen 1mo
Went down to breakfast this morning yvxufdqfbu and the plastic shields between tables were gone and they have taken away the vaccine pass scanners. Very nice. ๐Ÿ˜„
mandymww 1mo
Hope you enjoyed! rdhkelrmlv That long missed normal seems strange seems interesting
