"we've chartered a 45 seater bus to send us straight to the hotel from the airport! "
Oh well, so much for doing it backpacker style!
Will Roxanne be coming?

Located along Austin Road and next to Kowloon Park, it is logistically more convenient for our travelling needs and allow us to sleep in later and save on transport costs. BP International also went through a recent renovation and has larger toilet facilities than Dragon Hostel.
We charted the bus after working out the costs.
A21 costs HKD$33 per head;
our estimated group size is 40 which works out to be HKD$1,320.
The charted bus costs HKD$650 from the Airport to the Hotel.
[techically still backpacker style since the objective is to minimise costs and maximise convenience]

Moving to BP House is good. It means only a 6 minute walk to the camera shops in Tung Ying and Champagne Arcade in TST.

Ed, You're asking me who Roxanne is?
That centamap link which I posted above is an interactive one. You can zoom in on the locale of your choice.

Interesting trip ..
this is a perfect time for luminiaries from CS to showcase their talents...
if only experienced portraiture photographers such as reachme2003, virgo, espn, aj23 and the NUGs gang can join in ... this will be such a treat for the Asean photographic community ...
i'll probably be in HK visiting a friend .. so i'll find u guys out there ...
look out for a guy with an old box like camera...
Happy Shooting ...

Hi Dagger, let me go into the office and check and I'll get back to u by lunch time today. PM me your hp number
Oh, sorry no partners (I assume u mean wife/girlfriend). This is a shooting cum networking trip. Yes there are lobangs and ways around it but pls dont.... I'd like to give slots (just in case anyone backs out last minute) to serious photogs who want an opportunity to mix around and network
OK, just a quick update....... Sebastian Song and myself will be in HK in July for a pre-trip recce to check on timings of the actual schedule, do an actual dry run of the entire schedule, quality of accomodations, first hand feel for the actual locations we're going, meals for our Muslim brothers etc etc
Everything looks great on paper so far!
On the sponsorship side, a few of the confirmed sponsors have already given us the trip gifts and prizes. Still waiting for results from a couple more sponsors.
Oh one last thing, names of trip participants will be put up in a day or two!
Indonesia side's participation is currently bursting at the seams with a total of 21 participants confirmed
