[Ming Pao]

International Latin Dance King Ricky Martin landed in Hong Kong yesterday in a private jet from Australia and checked in at the Peninsula Hotel. After half a day's rest, he appeared at about 4pm and boarded a helicopter from the roof of the hotel that took him on a luxury birds eye tour of Hong Kong as well as away from the waiting media. He was later spotted sampling Chinese cuisine at the Shangri-La Hotel and shopping at Shanghai Tang in Admiralty. When he was finally caught up with in Central, he was surprisingly friendly and was happy to have photos taken and give an impromptu display of his dance moves. The golden-haired lady at his side was quick to disappear back into the car though.

Ricky will be appearing at a press conference promoting his new album "Almas Del Silencio" before moving on to present an award at this evening's Miss Hong Kong pageant for TVB and then later at Metro Radio's Mandarin Hit's awards.
