The Tree House @ Causeway Bay

11 days after i came back from Hong Kong, i had a few symptons of the dreaded flu. Sore throat, phelgm, a slight cough and blocked nose.

Saw the doctor - no fever, you are safe.

12 days after i came back from Hong Kong, coughing and feeling woozy (omg, fever?)

Saw the doctor again - no fever, but you got the halal flu.

Phew.

Slept 6 hours on Friday afternoon. Thereafter, my body clock was truly messed up. Without the flu medicine, i would sleep 6 hours and wake up, not wanting to sleep any longer (eventhough i am supposed to). With the flu meds, i was sleeping 9 hours at night.

Oh dear, i am staying away from the flu medicine.

Back to Hong Kong, shall we?


Just like how we have La Bodega and several others who allow people to bum with drinks and play board games, Hong Kong is blessed with a tiny cafe on the 10th floor of a building in Causeway Bay. Seating not more than 15-20 people, there is a variety of board games to play.

Including what appeared to be the canggih manggih Monopoly.

Which now comes with this device

Credit cards! Oh dear me, are they already educating kids to use credit cards? Swipe and the property is yours. Swipe again to give me rent. Swipe to build hotel!

Am i that outdated? Apparently Toys R US sells the same set. Retails at a blinding RM 170.

You have choices like this cooling herbal drinks

Or smoothies, alcoholic or non-alcoholic is up to you.

A very cozy place that offers free WiFi too, something very unique to have in Malaysia but how to make money when you get customers like us, ordering 1 drink and playing Monopoly the night away?

Address and contact details:

10/F, Radiant Centre, 7 Cannon Street, Causeway Bay,
Hong Kong, Wan Chai District
Tel: 28932205

Rating (entertainment wise): Relaxing 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Cramped but the concept is cozier, pity it is very friendly for non-smokers too.
