2007 was the first of a few years in which I would travel in each of those years. That summer I went to Hong Kong by way of Los Angeles. The first flight was on United Airlines, where I had a coffee. I kept the sugar as a memento.
On June 25, 2007, my family and I enjoyed a buffet dinner at cafe TOO inside the Island Shangri-La Hotel in Hong Kong. These are some of my selections from that evening.
On this plate we have grilled lamb, cheese-breaded chicken, salami, prosciutto-ham-wrapped asparagus, and pan-fried fish.
A hearty noodle soup (pork bone base) with sliced beef, bok choy, bean sprouts, and shiitake mushrooms.
Cream of tomato soup.
A selection of raw oysters, a crab claw, salmon and tuna sashimi, a prawn, and shrimp cocktail.
Here we have an Indian selection: basmati rice, naan bread, various curries, and tandoori chicken.
