You can try to apply from the China Embassy in Antigua & Barbuda. If it can be done, you don't need to go back to your country for that.

Jay, you can try to convert your current X type to a tourist L type at the exit and entry administration of the local PSB within China. If it can be done, you don't need to go to HK for that.
You should prepare your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, valid registration form of temporary residence in China, return air tickets and hotel reservation. Then, submit the application to the local PSB.
