10 things I learned about Hong Kong.


From a TVB series marathon in Auckland:
1. In Hong Kong, people always stand in a line so that you can see everyone at once, they never interrupt each other and everyone gets to finish their sentences.
2. Nice people have shit ringtones. The bad guys are always polyphonic.
3. Somehow, everyone loves their grandparents.
4. Everyone has heart attacks. Everyone retires in New Zealand.
5. Your house need a giant staircase to qualify as a mansion.
6. Unless you get richer or poorer, your hairstyle never changes.
7. It is only a love story when you hear the main theme song playing in the background; if not you're just the fishmonger.
8. Never trust the cousin.
9. Someone is always listening to your conversation.
10. It only takes 30 minutes to get from one place to another.
God bless my never to be seen again brain cells. Merry Christmas.

Kia Ora.

My first impression of Auckland, after my last visit during 2006, is how much it resembles my perception of America.
Along the highways to my brother's place all I could remember was the giant fast food restaurants, hyper markets, and the petrol stations.
Having been forced to a retired* life, I've also noticed a lot of morbidly obese kids walking around in the shopping mall.
And I'm not too sure if I like it.

*I was in FoodTown with my parents. I asked them if we should buy the ingredients for tomorrow's dinner, which my father replied: "If we were to buy tomorrow's ingredients today, then what are we going to do tomorrow afternoon?"

Window.

Ok so I no longer have internet at my new home and I'm typing this at work just for a quick update some Singaporean bitch screwed us over and Ken lost his beer in the process (very angry) and I didn't end up sleeping yesterday while moving because I'm leaving for Auckland on Wednesday and I need to unpack in order to pack but I guess life has been quite interesting for the last week partly because a huge amount of alcohol was involved during the agency Xmas party and I happen to fall into a vortex of nostalgia while going through photographs which are 5 years old and many friends are graduating which honestly I couldn't care less because today is the last day of work for the year and I can't wait to go home and sleep off this 4 cups of coffee and feel it tomorrow but you won't know it because I won't have internet so until I evolve in terms of technology I will see you in Auckland.

Gold.


Once again, I didn't do it. It was just sitting in my miscellaneous folder and I couldn't rememeber where I sourced it from.

No no no listen to me.


Because I'm your father.

Can I have Small Mac?




So the story is that the Burger King folks have gone to rural areas where they've never heard of BK or McDonald's before to do the ultimate taste test:
Whopper vs. Big Mac.

The documentary will be released in 2 days.
But seriously, do you think they'll actually release a documentary of people favouring the Big Mac's?
Check it out at WhopperVirgins.com

Awesomeness.


Something X and I saw in Minotaur last week. We just thought it was a cute until we related it to THE cyrstal skull from Indiana Jones.
Then it became awesome and we just crashed and laughed.


The thing about not meeting a friend for 2 years, is that you get to have this AK47-ness to talk about every single thing you're afraid that your normal friends would find repetitive. And they make you see your own life in a different light.
That, is also awesome.

Straw made of straw.


The result of the 3rd Muji International Award is out. This year's winning work is a straw made out of straw.
It's very 'duh' but that fits perfectly with the theme. Still heaps better than last year's 'rip your own clothe' idea.

Joern Utzon dies at 90.


Yet he is immortal.
