I first visited the Hilton shortly after my arrival in HK in 1978. The famous lunch buffet was $50-HK and  particularly remember a group if very well dressed and coiffured ladies sitting at a large round table. They rarely ate anything and mainly chatted. It was explained to me that they were "Tai Tais" who were all on diets and were there to chat, show off new clothes and hairstyles and be seen.
