on just not trying (iron cord art 4)

I'm sorry, Hilton Shanghai, but this is lazy and offensive. From the uneven loop lengths, to the drooping centre cinch, it's downright depressing.

on luring me back

Regular readers will be aware of a certain hotel chain favouritism on the part of this traveller. But the reality is that I am easily bought, and the price is not high. It is, however, higher than three green apples, which is the reward I got for my fifth stay at the Hilton Singapore.

It is fortunate for them that the rest of the Hilton chain tend to do a better job, as delightfully evidenced by what was presented to me upon my first stay at Hilton Beijing Wangfujing. From top to bottom, 6 chocolate coated strawberries on a bed of raisins, 6 macaroons on a bed of popcorn, 8 chocolates on a bed of coffee beans. Click on the image and weep.

I'll be back.
