Doesn't time fly! Next week marks our 20th year of marriage (28 as a couple) ... we're going to celebrate - in style!

I normally do TR's after the event - I'll attempt to do this one on the run using my new toy (iphone6) so it will be heavy on photos with minimal or no text. Our itinerary is detailed below to assist matching the image to the experience.

Should be fun!

Congratulations for the 20 years milestone amaroo!
Looking forward to your TR and to see the quality of the iPhone 6 camera. With good photos there is no need for much text :)

Congratulations amaroo! Hope you and your wife have a great trip. Was just at FS HK earlier this month and it was fantastic, yet again. Delicious meal at Caprice too - enjoy the fabulous food they offer there!

I seem to recall that you do like the FS HKG LadyC ... any chance of a TR to wet the appetite?

Caprice is confirmed with a Parisian style (side by side) table setting - Magnifique!

Congrats Amaroo. FS HK is the business. Keep an ear out for the underwater music in the pool, and I'm not usually a spa type of bloke, but that place is amazing.

My TRs are a little less interesting now as we are travelling with a little one. A few less adventures understandably - but thanks for the nod!

Mr Timtammi surprised me with a dinner booking at Caprice on one of our trips to Hkg on business. It was fantastic although I must say I don't remember the cab ride back to the Langham afterwards, too much good food and wine! The bar attached to the restaurant is a must too, great views, lovely ambience and killer coughtails. Highly recommend a pre dinner drink there.

As suspected (and counting on) CX has opened up and J award seats are awash at the last minute. CX100 (my favourite) is available - I've just made the call to QFF and the changes are done.

When I made the booking months ago, no direct flights to HKG or back were available - hence the pitstop in SIN. I was always counting on CX seats being released at the last minute .... like they always are!

We still need to come back via SIN as nothing is available and once we start the trip ... no more changes.

Therefore, we will no longer be flying to SIN on BA16 or stay one night at the Grand Hyatt or need that extra flight on CX690 to HKG. A refund of 122,000 QFFP & $160 has already landed in the account :D

An extra day in HKG and the Four Seasons :D + 122,000 points back in the kitty - you beauty!

Congratulations and have a wonderful time! Be interested in your comments on the Four Seasons, as I am a bit of a FS fan, although we loved the Penninsula when we stayed there last year for our 32nd anniversary.

I'm a huge fan of FS HKG. Have been staying here since 2007 - quite a few times since. Do yourself a favour and stay here .... make sure you get a room with Exec Club access - exceptional!

Enjoying evening drinks on this balcony - awesome!

There is also the pool/s :cool:

Yum yum yum Can't wait! Congratulations Amaroo. I was away for work for our 40th (does that give an inkling of my mature years? Oh I was a child bride of course!) so no wonderful holiday, though the Galapagos and MP was the year before for a milestone b'day and the Arctic for Mr L_t_L's milestone (that was awesome on Silversea).
Looking forward to lots of pics and tell me how is the iPhone 6 - I am collecting one next week?
