BEING labelled a high-flyer in the Government these days has taken on a new dimension - and one more in line with getting places in style and comfort rather than being on the fast track to promotion. On a recent trip to the United States to gather evidence in a complicated money laundering trial, two Hong Kong lawyers working on the case decided to forgo slumming it with the plebs in economy on the return trip to New York. Instead, they forked out an extra $10,000 or so for a round-the-world flight, including a quick blast across the North Atlantic between the Big Apple and London in the height of luxury travel - on Concorde. But we are told there is no need to ring the graft-busters in the Murray Road car park building to investigate another example of civil servants claiming illegitimate expenses. According to a Legal Department spokesman, the pair dug into their own pockets to pay for the supersonic flight, with the characteristic boom as it breaks the sound barrier, and covered all costs above and beyond what they clearly consider to be inadequate allowances. SPORT-LOVING Central District police were able to get in on the Hong Kong Sixes hype with one of their periodic licensing raids in the Lan Kwai Fong area a couple of days before the big cricket event. When the lads entered one bar in trendy D'Aguilar Street, they discovered it held a club licence, meaning members only were allowed to buy drinks. When no members could be found, all those present were asked to present their identity cards for checking. Several athletic-looking gweilos were also unable to help on this point . . . because they were in the Dutch, English and Hong Kong sixes squads. Perhaps they would have been better off in Le Bar Bat nearby. A STORY came our way last week which raised more than a wry grin. It concerned an actress who was so appallingly bad that no director would touch her. However, in the cash-strapped world of theatre, she had one asset: a rich husband. He decided to finance a stage version of The Diary Of Anne Frank, the tragic tale of a Jewish girl who was caught hiding in an Amsterdam house by anti-semitic German soldiers during World War II. The husband made just one stipulation: that his wife got the lead role. This was reluctantly accepted and the play went ahead to the expected groans of a disappointed audience . . . so disappointed in fact that when it came to the scene where the Gestapo arrived at the house, one member of the audience loudly shouted: 'She's in the attic!' INTERESTING news in from the Dome Shop in Allied Plaza, Prince Edward Road. The establishment, which is Hong Kong's only retail outlet to exclusively sell condoms, reports that its best-selling product is the Ruler, which has measurements running along its length to allow one's partner to size one up at a glance. The mainly twenty-something female patrons are apparently also partial to fluorescent green, the so-called Small Peck - Protection for the Little Guy - and the Big Dick and Horse Only extra large condoms. It's good to know the fun is back in Hong Kong's sex life, but what happened to good old-fashioned NuForm? THE management at the Westin Hotel group might be re-thinking their promotions in future. At a buffet reception in the American Club in Exchange Square to mark the opening of their latest hotel - in Tokyo - they offered a free trip for two to the Japanese capital. All the winner had to do was to have his or her name card pulled out of a tombola. As everyone's card was taken upon entry, they figured that was incentive enough to encourage people to stay.
