The happy concierge

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.

Looking for my long lost family in Hong Kong And previously.... Fell in love with coastal living 5 years ago. And moved to stunning St Ives. A place to create and grow and flourish. Got me a home and a job. And never looked back. Everyone talks and writes about the famous dead people of St Ives. Virginia and Alfred and Ben and Barbara and Peter and Wilhelmina. Well I thought I’d introduce you to some very nice folk, and they’re all very much alive and make St Ives a much the better town for it.
