The ankle I sprained 4 months ago swells up all like an old lady’s every time I walk on it for over an hour. (Good luck being in Hong Kong and not walking everywhere!) A know-nothing friend proclaimed “it’s just water!” STFU, friend. That makes no sense. Even if it is “just water”, a pint …
Every shampoo I haven’t seen in Hong Kong, I saw tonight at Senda Salon in Causeway Bay. This place was stocked full of Nioxin, Kerastase, Paul Mitchell, Redkin, Joico,
This index nets-out the people who want to emigrate to, as well as away from, a given country and divides that tally into the country’s total population, for a quick look at where people want (and don’t want) to be.
In preparation for my (temporary? permanent?) relocation to Singapore, I asked Chip a few questions about the place. As we know, she lived there from age 6–19. Here’s her full interview on Singapore and how it differs from Hong Kong.
Found this map on Time Out HK’s fb page. I live on the prostitute side of “bankers.” Chip lives with “angry villagers” close to monkeys.
I love unlabeled maps and I LOVE my new vector map of Hong Kong. Simply click on it for a nice, high-res version for your collection.
Unless you can pull your hair back into a ponytail, you may not understand why anyone would spend more than single-digit dollars on any hair product.
For me, it’s Argentina, close to the Bolivia border. If you’re anywhere in the US, your opposite point is the middle of the Indian Ocean, miles and miles from anything. Check it out here. It’s a slow day at work.
Ten days. (And about a dollar.) Postmarked the 3rd. Today is the 13th. Thanks to Angela for this bit of research. Here’s my address for everyone participating in the exclusive timeshare offer in the previous post:
Aberdeen is known as “Hong Kong Minor”. The 25-minute Sampan ride (included in my Big Bus Tour) took me around the floating village of the Tanka people.
Got back from Lamma Island just in time to catch the 6:15pm Big Bus route to Victoria Peak. The steep tram up usually costs $25, but a free ticket is included in the Big Bus Tour! Nighttime is the best viewing time due to all the lights, but tonight was rather misty/hazy, so I just …
The guy I bought the Big Bus Tour asked me meet him for lunch Monday and we went to Lamma Island.
It’s touristy, but probably the best thing I could do to figure out where the heck I am. $45 gets me 48 hours of hop-off/hop-on (“You’ll be getting some hop-ons”) privileges. Plug in the headphones they give you, choose your language, and learn stuff like: • Hong Kong has more skyscrapers than any other city …
Yeah, that ain’t happening. What is happening? This is. An almost- 3-minute sample of what’s on TV. (The good stuff happens around 0:48.) You’re welcome.
The Hong Kong wikipedia entry basically tells me it’s warm – 80’s in the summer / 50’s in the winter – and pretty British. And technically China, but not really. More useful than a straightforward, factual wikipedia is this fb message from a friend who would know:
I didn’t know “Mo-Pac” meant anything. I thought maybe some guy name Mo (short for Maurice) and some guy (nicknamed “Pac” by his baby brother who couldn’t say “Patrick”) couldn’t agree on the name.
