What's with the name?

According to Answers.com, the definition of the word 'oasis' is:

An isolated fertile area, usually limited in extent and surrounded by desert.

How is Hong Kong either isolated or surrounded by desert? Hmmm!

Didnt realise airline names had to mean something specific. Obviously SRB was a Virgin when he started his little empire. The should change their name now to never been a Virgin.
