Room 336 in the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong and it's famous history, a new "old" Central Police Station emerges from the scaffolding and the stupid prices they charge for Jade in Hong Kong.
It was a privilege to meet Mike and the gang the other day, they arrived on the Azamara Journey a somewhat small but luxurious cruise ship and I spent the day showing them around Hong Kong.
Lois is a green artist from Canada and knows a bit about trees!
.. and to follow that tour with Margaret, Chris and the gang from Toronto was a real treat!
I love my job!
I have read that the Surrender Ceremony between the British / Canadian Hong Kong Defense Force and the victorious Japanese invading army took place in room 336 of the Peninsula Hotel on Christmas Day 1941.
I recently paid a visit to the Hotel and was a tad disappointed to note that there is simply nothing to denote this significant piece of Hong Kong History.
The rooms have recently been upgraded which may explain this oversight... all I could think was the Hotel staff should really wipe away the smeared finger prints from above the door handle...
