Thursday Doors: Wan Chai Central Plaza

Today, I took a trip to Hong Kong Immigration, which was the final episode in the saga of losing my passport as I mentioned in previous “Thursday Doors” posts.  After seven long hours of waiting, my visa was transferred to my shiny new passport and I went looking for doors and Christmas decorations to lift my mood.

The tall immigration building in Wan Chai, on Hong Kong Island, is next door to the Central Plaza hotel so that was my first stop. Every year, the staff puts up lovely Christmas decorations and I wanted to see.

I thought this was a door … but not!  Interesting woodwork though.

As I entered the hotel, a group of students from a special needs school stood in the lobby joyfully singing Christmas carols. After my long wait at immigration, their beautiful voices lifted my spirits.

I’ll post the other door photos I took from Wan Chai in the new year.

Wishing you all a joyful holiday time with family and friends!

    1. They certainly do. Along the harbor, many of the highrise buildings are covered in Christmas lights. Happy holidays, Norm!

    1. Thanks so much! It’s so nice that you and your daughter are playing at a local retirement home. I don’t sing either, and definitely don’t play anything. What instruments to you play. My son plays the saxaphone. Happy holidays!

        Well we play the instruments of our region, I play the 5-string banjo and my daughter plays the violin and the mandolin. Our grass is blue as they say around here. lol
