Mr Shee Lee Hoi, owner of one of Hong Kong's most famous restaurants,
paid a small fortune to have his name on a special display outside his
_ _ _ _ _ _ restaurant. It took engineers and
|_ |_ |_ |_ | |_ |_ |_ | | | neon sign makers several weeks to
_| | | |_ |_ | |_ |_ | | |_| | please Mr. Hoi's demands. If all
we know is his restaurant's phone
number (331-3345) can you figure out what Mr. Hoi's demands were?
(I may be mistaken, but I believe the area code was 104 if that makes
a difference)
