…for leaving you all for such long intervals. All 50 or so readers who read my tripe. I’m sure you’re all gasping for more.

Here’s the down-low on what’s happenin’ in Chez Bonkers.

Well here are some food photos of a pretty traditional Chinese wedding we went to on Christmas Day! Yes I have to go back that far to get you some new photos. I didn’t eat the shark fin soup because I didn’t want to lose the last shred of my animal loving dignity. I ate every other “was once alive” thing on the menu though.

The difference between traditional Chinese weddings and the weddings we are used to in the non-Asian world was that there was no dancing. Not that I would have danced but that was the excuse when we guzzled our way through copious amounts of red wine. Copious.
I didn’t like the next day and it didn’t like me.

We are officially on two weeks holidays as of last Friday. We head off to Bangkok on Thursday as I’m doing a talk at a conference there on Saturday. If you’re intrigued I’m sure you can find it you internet savvy nerds. This will be my fourth time in Thailand; I like it a lot.
Then on Sunday afternoon we will fly down to Penang, Malaysia until Friday for some much-needed R’n’R.

Now I’m off to shave my head then later a trip on the Hong Kong train system up near “Real China” to play some football. Wouldn’t be surprised if the team is made up of Chinese border guards and immigration officers with attack dogs as cheerleaders. It’s raining too.
