When Arnold Schwarzenegger came to town last week, he squeezed a lot into 24 hours.

Apart from going to the Peak by tram, shopping, having lunch on a yacht and playing golf, Arnold made an appearance at Planet Hollywood - the restaurant chain in which he is a stockholder.

'One of the great things about being one of the owners of Planet Hollywood is that I get to travel the world visiting the restaurants and inspecting the menu and service,' Arnold said. And with a brand new Planet Hollywood menu to be launched at the end of the month, Arnold said he tried every dish. His favourite is the salmon cardinal.

Making his first visit to Hong Kong, Arnold received a huge basket of fruit from Jackie Chan as a welcoming gesture - Jackie, alas, wasn't in town to personally meet his fellow action superstar.

After returning to Los Angeles, Arnold was due to start work on End of Days, about the return of the Devil at the end of the millennium. Arnold, naturally, sends him back to Hell.
