Koppu Hits

Not the most illustrative of videos on the strength of Koppu but you get the point.
Koppu kept up it’s fight and The Observatory kept the Signal 8 so that we didn’t get to go to work today.
It was the first typhoon that actually looked like one in our year here.

The after effects today were bouts of very heavy and swirling rain. Bye bye Koppu, thanks for dropping by.

So Typhoon Signal 8 got hoisted (I don’t know where they do the actual hoisting) around 6pm. All the shops are shutting…up shop…and the bus lines are like bread lines in communist Russia of old.

So the likelihood that it is still around come 6am tomorrow is about as likely as me winning a Pulitzer for my inane ramblings on here.

So that’s that.

It sure is a purdy Typhoon. All fluffy and thwirly.

Koppu loada that!

I’ll stop now.

I’ve played football over the last few days in probably 35 celcius heat. It’s not fun. Not fun at all.
Especially when one of the games is a league one and you lose 5-2. After leading 2-0.

Here is where we play our casual kick arounds every Sunday. Great little pitch for 7-a-side. Only downside that it is a 40 minute commute to it, as it’s on Lantau island out by the airport. We have another get together on Wednesdays at a park near our apartment which I must take photos of because its right bang in the middle of the city.

Actually I feel like all I did this weekend was football related. Well not next weekend because we’re off for Cebu in the Philippines to hopefully some sun and relaxation.Ahhhhhh.

The heat has been crazy overall, and there is no sign of it letting up. At the other end of the spectrum a typhoon has kicked through the Philippines and is coming in a vague twirly pattern up here but will probably not effect us.

Back to work tomorrow. Tell me why I don’t like Mondays.
