I have just returned from a work lunch. We had dim sum at a local restaurant here in central. I have been living in Asia for a few years now and would count myself fairly “au fait” with the more important table manners required when eating with my local colleagues. However, today it came to … Continue reading

Stranger things have happened…

There is a girl wearing lens-less frames at work today. She is wearing contacts, with lens-less frames. She says that her eyes are swollen from an infection and she needs to wear glasses with no lenses to protect them. Interesting concept. I wear glasses myself and know only too well the discomfort that they cause … Continue reading

Your chat stinks.

Talking crap is highly beneficial. Fact. JP and his mates always provide such interesting insights into the male psyche. The inability of men to concentrate on more than one thing at once usually allows me to be the fly on the wall, as they don’t even notice I am in the same room once their chins … Continue reading

Deal Breakers

In every relationship each person has their own set of ‘deal breakers’, the little quirks and peculiarities that some might find endearing and others find insufferable! For example, when I was younger, things like thumb rings and leather man jewelry would send me running for the hills! These days things are a bit different, and … Continue reading

Who’s funnier? Him or me?

I think I can be funny when I try and according to JP, even funnier when I don’t. I think I have a great sense of humour, some might say a little obtuse, but I would just attribute that to spending a lot of time with JP and a lot of time having to find … Continue reading

A Tribute To My Mates

Lately it has come to my attention just how proud I am of my friends. I was discussing a few of them with a friend here in Hong Kong, when I caught the sound of my own voice and realised what a turd I sounded like. After more thought, I realised that instead of bashing … Continue reading

What do I think of KONY 2012 ?

I’m sure you have all heard about the KONY 2012 Campaign – if not, I suggest you come out from under that rock and read a newspaper, logon to Facebook or update your tweets because it’s EVERYWHERE and rightly so. Today I received a post on my Facebook in reply to my support of the … Continue reading

Things I love about Hong Kong.

It occurred to me today that alot of my posts come from dark places where cynicism grows. I don’t mean it to sound that way, but it can be difficult when your living abroad. I am going to make an effort to post things that I love about this place more often. In an attempt … Continue reading

Never gets old.

J always tells this story about how when we were (much) younger and living in Portugal, and one night I began to cook spag bol. He usually breaks into a fit of laughter at this stage and struggles to tell the next part of the story, at which point I usually try to interject and … Continue reading

A confession.

I have a confession to make…I have developed a bit of an obsession. All my life I have rolled my eyes at the screaming girls that congregate outside the houses of celebrities, and judgmentally thought less of those that idolized individuals because of their achievements or the level of fame that they had accomplished. In … Continue reading
