    Yes, I Still Hate PCCW

    # 2014-04-23 05:07:32, Hongkie Town
    8 days since my last post?  I guess this is how it’s going to go for awhile, or maybe not. Things have been busy at work and in my spare time I’ve been busy with my Hong Kong Ink project. And my birthday’s coming up in 10 days and it’s a big one so I […]

    eventually

    # 2014-04-22 19:58:11, sketches from the other side
    When I was young, I asked my priest how would I know if god was listening and he told me that my prayers would always be answered, though not always with the answer that I wanted. Dear god, may I have a dog was definitely not answered as I wanted at the time though right now I can boast to having double what I wanted. Patience and perseve...

    it takes a village

    # 2014-04-22 19:00:59, sketches from the other side
    Along with taking a village to raise a child, it may also take a village to pay for one. My sister wants only organic for her upcoming bundle and the stuff that she's registered would have made me need to sit down if I was not already seated in front of the computer. I have no objection to organic muslin and bamboo swaddling cloths, cloth...

    Sleepy Backwater Pui O Gets New Restaurant

    # 2014-04-22 11:49:01, China Droll
    After lying dormant for a long time, the eating establishment on Pui O beach has new owners, a new look and a new name. Mavericks. I thought the name was because the owners see themselves as something of a maverick, but it turned out to be a surfing location in northern California. I’m sure every...

    From Pak Kung Au down to Mui Wo (Photo-essay)

    # 2014-04-22 04:56:15, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE
    No lie: for the third hike in a row, my hiking friend and I spotted a snake while out in the wilds of Hong Kong!  But unlike with the previous two hikes (whose photo-essays (complete with snake pics) can be seen here and here), the slithery critter we encountered slithered away before I could tak...

    Adding Time

    # 2014-04-21 18:29:58, China Droll
    Noticed how Hong Kong and mainland China’s governments are growing closer and closer? The only difference is that HK’s one pretends to have “public consultations” before they go ahead and spend taxpayers’ money on some new white elephant du jour. In both places, although public transport is great, it seems to take longer and ...

    One of SB's grad school friends was planning to visit family in Hong Kong and planned to stay with us. Sadly, she phoned a few days ago to report that her mother had suffered a sudden illness and the trip was most likely going to be cancelled. Yesterday her mother passed away from a brain aneurysm. Today she phoned to say that she was sti...

    Easter Sunday on Tap Mun

    # 2014-04-20 06:09:53, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE
    It took a while -- and waiting in a long line early on  -- to get to today's hike destination  After my hiking friend and I made it to Tap Mun, we found that plenty of other people also had decided to spend the afternoon on the northeastern Hong Kong island  Upon getting to the northern end of the island, however, we...

    Indigo and Still Life (This week's Photo Hunt themes)

    # 2014-04-19 06:15:37, WEBS OF SIGNIFICANCE
      There's a certain irony in my not having taken part in Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts last week when the chosen themes (of 'ginormous' and 'rocks') would have been far easier for me to find suitable photos for than this week!  Actually, Gattina's choice this week of still life i...
