I don’t have anything to say. Really.


Hong Kong comes to life at night. I’m exhausted in the evenings but if a friend tricks me to go out and meet him, like what happened last night, you get the buzz and the vibe and you just want to walk the streets with the locals. Our apartment looks down on an extremely busy road leading to Times Square, even at midnight the stream of people walking past the little sliver of the street we can see is bustling with people. I don’t know what they’re doing really. No wonder everybody falls asleep on trams and buses here. Long, long days.

But if I stay in like tonight, I feel like a big plank of dead wood. I’m physically incapable of going to bed early though. Just not me. So I’m typing this. Intriguing reading huh?

Oh, it’s Crab season here! Yippee….no wait,it’s horrible! All the little eateries around us have fridges filled with tightly strung live crabs. Poor crabby, crabby crabs. I avert my eyes, it’s all I can do.

Release the claws, release the crabs!

Footy is going well, Hamsap FC has won two games in a row and I scored in both.

We do team photos like we line up. Not too well. We play at 8am on Saturday. It’s just not right.

Halloween is coming up and of course the pressure is on to get dressed up. It’s Sharyn’s birthday, of course, and we are meeting up with a select few for dinner and drinks.

That’s it, I’m off to fly a Cessna around some air base in Florida. And crashing.

Everything has become normal now and I find it hard to write about stuff very frequently.

I still double-take, I still stare at the environment around me but tourist mode is over and its get busy livin’ or get busy dying, damn straight.

So, we look forward to the weekends extremely. Last weekend after a night in Friday, I played footy and then we went to a BBQ where we met some more new people. We are going on a junk boat trip this Sunday from 11am to around 7 with some of the same people and some more. This involves chillin’, chatting, drinkin’ and eating. We dock up at some island at some point for lunch. I will bestow upon you all with a detailed route map after we set foot on dry land again. But it will be good i’m thinking (the boat trip, not the map).

Third footy game on Saturday so won’t do much tomorrow night, must get pics this time. Will wear my Chinglish named shirt and see what happens. I think I’m from the Baltic region now by default because of the amount of consonants I have one after the other.
