Hong Kong Insider: Stan Sweeney
Stan Sweeney, an Australian in Hong Kong
“In summer, when everything gets too hot, it's an early start to Cheung Sha Beach or a hotel pool.”
Stan Sweeney is an Australian who has lived in Hong Kong for the past five years. She works in the events industry and has been lucky enough to visit most places in Asia during her travels, but Hong Kong is where her heart is.
What's your favourite thing to do on a Sunday?
Arrange a junk-boat trip to a deserted beach somewhere off Sai Kung
with friends, or else it's a hike on one of Hong Kong's many trails. In summer, when everything gets too hot, it's an early start to Cheung Sha Beach
or a hotel pool.
How would you spend a long weekend?
Long weekends are for playing hard on Friday night, then easing into the remaining days. An afternoon walk around Wan Chai
or Sheung Wan
, a visit to the Massage Centre of the Blind
(phone +852 2810-6666) to work out the week's stresses, and then a nice dinner somewhere new in town.
What's your idea of a good night out?
Dinner somewhere on Hong Kong Island
followed by beers in Wan Chai
, or a cocktail at Azure on the roof of the LKF Hotel
if we have guests in town. Then I'd settle in at Stormy's
in Lan Kwai Fong.
