one important thing: bring hk$500 extra with you.
the hotel will ask for this deposit, or your credit card, when you check in to the hotel. some people who went there on a very tight budget had problems with this.
i saw mostly chinese food, there's a fast food joint there, fair wood i think. try their milk tea (nai cha).
however, my friend who went there a couple weeks before me had some gi problems after eating the local food...had some difficulty taking the nclex with a bum stomach...so i stuck with mcdonald's.
i saw a pizza hut in kowloon.
there are lots of watson's & 7-11's there.
mostly nicer now, and most can speak english. or at least understand.
very hot at this time of year.
thank you very much pinoy-guy!
i appreciate your point by point answer to my queries, it is very helpful and clear...
thank you very much for making an effort in answering my queries systematically, hehe, i prefer this method also, whenever i get to answer questions, hehe, but sometimes, when i'm low on time allowance, i tend to encapsulate all at ones(which is disadvantageous at times because some details might get overlooked/missed)...
wow, another 500 hk dollars? indeed, i'm on a tight budget myself, hehe, how about if you pay the hotel fees in advance? is deposit still required?
chinese food is okey with me(supposing it is similar to chinese restaurants here in the philippines)...i see, is fair wood near the exam site? where is it located? hehe, i hope their nai cha/milk tea is not as bitter as chowking's...hehehe...
i see, thank you for giving me precautions in advance; so local foods there might not be healthy...hmmm, or perhaps just because our stomach got new food?
mcdo and pizzahut would do me fine, hehe, especially pizzahut for a heavy meal...but how much do they charge food and drinks there? how does it compare to our rates here?
i see, so watson's is already international...and so is 7-11...but how are the prices in these shops there as compared to our rates here?
i see, that is good to hear, i hope they are helpful as well...i see, okey, so communication won't be much of a problem there...yeah, i remember, hk used to be a british colony right?
i see, really?! how hot? how does it compare to philippine heat nowadays? even at the last quarter(i'm planning to get my nclex somewhere around this time)? so jackets are least likely to be used? do they not have winter there? is it also raining there often?
any other things that must be known or brought at hk for the nclex test?
thank you very much...:angel2:
