[IPk] travel insurance

I know that this topic has been discussed many times. However, I have some  
unusual circumstances and am looking for some advice. 
I am travelling to Hong Kong this Sunday for 2 weeks to attend a wedding. I  
am presently in the UK but as many of you know I live and work in Tanzania. I  
return to the UK every 6 months for about 4 weeks where we have our house. 
The problem that I am having with obtaining travel insurance is that the  
 companies I have checked require me to have been resident in the UK for up to 6
months before travel. Before I left for Dar es Salaam, TZ in Jan. 07, I had  
purchased an annual policy here in the UK that I had assumed would cover me  
 particularly for travel to and from Tz. It was only later that I discovered
 it was only good for 90 day trips. 
Any advice for my trip to Hong Kong and also for travelling to and from Tz  
 would be greatly appreciated? The obvious thing would be to buy a travel policy
 in Dar es Salaam, but I have never been able to find anything on  offer 
there. I do have medical cover while there, but not travel insurance  for 
 diabetes. I am unconfortable about not having any cover for 2 weeks in Hong
