Here's video from a recent 24 hr Hong Kong layover. Managed a couple of snakes and had a good time.

Wasn't sure about the ID of this Ratsnake at the time. Ptyas mucosa, right?

Another very enjoyable video ... hope you got enough sleep before your next flight!

It looks like a Ptyas mucosa to me, though I have no personal experience with them. I guess your finding a blind snake makes up for the disappointment of coming across a giant worm earlier in the night and thinking it might be a blind snake? Incidentally, an Internet search tells me that the Barbados threadsnake is actually the smallest species of snake, though it's in the same ballpark sizewise.
