Michael D, I hate to burst your bubble, but please reread the following information form page 1 of this thread(and the SPOILERS thread):

apskip posted  at Twop's on Dec 12, 2006:

HONG KONG NEXT SIGHTING
I have received information that Oswald and Danny and Dustin and Kandice have been spotted in Hong Kong. There was no mention of any other teams.


Now, it is possible that somehow Charla and Mirna were around but did not get sighted. However, it looks to me that the two teams that made the flight were D/K adn O/D, not C/M.

Yeah but you know Mirna! She's clearly good at airports so she could turn up anywhere. And since we don't know where or when D/O and the BQ's were seen, it doesn't help a lot in pinpointing a time or a task--it could have been anywhere. Unless you know more about your spoiler that you can share?

At first I thought teams were using the Star ferry and just happened to catch the fire safety program mentioned by schwarzmoor. But now we have proof that they wander around Tsim Sha Tsui doing...something.

Were you talking about Malaysia? D/O found a travel agent inside the Lucky building in Season 2 and saved a lot of time on the trip to Australia.  :plane:

OK, I have something need your guys to sort out, as we (Hong Kong TAR fans) are sorting another strange problem.

For you guys:
Why the heck the promo has NO NIGHT LIFE in Hong Kong???
Hong Kong's nickname is "Eastern Pearl". It's because Hong Kong's nightlife!


For us (Hong Kong TAR fans):
The direction of the following pic is strange.
It is not towards Cultural Centre, not from Cultural Centre to MTR station, not to/from Bus Stop.
Possible towards Hong Kong China Pier, Possibles ....... (we are discussing)

annielhy--look here where Slowhatch has Id'd the toy store. He says that the picture is "flipped" though, maybe so the map fits in?

And Night Life--I'd like some of that too! :lol:

Yep, it is flipped. The walking direction is still strange.

OK, the Milan Station is this one.:
G/F., 46 Haiphong Rd., Tsimshatsui, KLN

Not in "Chatham Rd" Branch

Does it match up with a "Kiss my Kids" location?
D/O are looking closely for something...a name or address number or TAR flag maybe. I think they're close to the task spot.

This is "Haiphong Rd., Tsimshatsui".

The folloeing is the correct direction:
http://www.milanstation.net/Images/tstfl_branch.jpg

About WALKING direction

The flipped images:



The map:
Blue dot - The extra location of D & O
Arrow - The direction that D & O is walking
- MTR station entrances
(Why they are not taking  MTR "e" entrance)

Great job annielhy! I do love me a nice map :lol: !

Very nice detecting!

Now, since we know where they were, who in Hong Kong wants to go do some personal sleuthing?   :gman:

I'm thinking that a shopowner along there would know something about a clue...and knowing a time would be so nice!

Am I being too pushy? ;D

 :lol: Well, I'll try!  :lol:

But something tells me that "feeds the helper to find the location" may not be an exact translation!



And Hey! Y'all never feed me!  (which may explain my lack of exact locations  :lol3:)
