4 pax in a HK hotel's superior room?

I have been searching throughout the Internet and going to Matta Fair for more information on Hong Kong. Yes, another DIY tour!!!

My in-laws, hubby and I are going on a free-n-easy tour on our own to Hong Kong since I manage to get cheap air ticket of RM360 per pax including seat allocation and 15kg luggage checked-in.

We are going to share our room in Hong Kong. I have book a room with 2 double bed in Mongkok, Hong Kong. I'm not worry about the bed size since I've check it out on Tripadvisor, the beds are larger than most Hong Kong hotel's single bed.

What I worry most is the fact that all the hotels only accommodate 2 person in a room, will only allow 1 more child to be in for most case. However 4 of us are going to stay in a room! I doubt the management will kept quite about it. Hubby and I planned to check-in with just 2 of us, follow by my in-laws sneaking in later.

What do you think? Have you stayed in Royal Plaza Hotel, Hong Kong? What would you say about it?

* $$ is the main reason we share a room but it is also due to my MIL fear of haunted hotel room!

Muzium Sultan Abu Bakar, Pekan

We pass by the Muzium Sultan Abu Bakar when my uncle brought us to Pekan for dinner. Since it was located near the shop where we were going to have our dinner, my cousin, hubby and I walked our way to the museum's main entrance. The time was ticking 6pm when we were there, hence the museum was closed, we were only able to take pictures from outside.

According to the facts I found through internet:

The Sultan Abu Bakar Museum is the state museum of Pahang. Located in the royal town of Pekan, it is only natural that the Royal Galleries merit a thorough inspection as they display a vast range of state regalia and other artifacts that speak of the colorful heritage of the sultanate.

The museum building was built in 1929 to replace the original wooden bungalow built in 1888. Used as the residence of the British Resident for several years, the building underwent several renovations and restorations. During the 2nd World War, it was used as the headquarters of the Japanese Army in Pahang. After the war it was converted into the official palace of the late Sultan Abu Bakar and was renamed Istana Kota Beram. In 1975, the Pahang State Museum Board turned the building into what it is today.
