Big Tony flew into Hong Kong on the day that I was to leave for France, and I felt lucky to have had some overlap with him as both of us were having short stays here - 3 days for me, 1 for him.
The two of us met during our high school days in Singapore. Even though we were in the same school for only a semester, we became fast friends and I got to know his family well. After I went off to college, we didn't see each other for a number of years due to the distance between us. The last time we met was when I went to visit him in San Antonio, just before leaving New York for Hong Kong. That was many, many moons ago.
He was hungry and wanted to eat, so I took him out for dim sum at Victoria City Seafood Restaurant (海都酒家). I figured there'd be enough variety and new things that they ain't got down in San Antonio...
the perfect example here.
