Wednesday 21st November
Hop Inn Hostel, Mody Road
A lot of people come and go in this building. As well as my hostel there’s a restaurant, a tailors, more hostels and guesthouses, other stuff. So it’s all guarded by uniformed men who sit with the CCTV cameras in a kind of little prison. Most are a bit grumpy looking, but one always smiley and friendly. I found out why. He has you tube karaoke on permanently, singing along in perfect English. I sang with him the other evening. He’s really good. His star turn is Elvis’s version of My Way!
He does it his way
Hong Kong’s happy concierge. See for yourself. I can’t work out how to embed a video, otherwise you could hear him too.
