We have moved into the new flat

And there's furniture and everything! Well, most of the furniture is pending delivery but it exists! And I helped choose it! Well, mostly I stood around looking decorative and smiling inanely at the sales clerks while getting sucked into Chinese dramas on the bigscreen TVs - but it's the thought that counts, right?

Strange thing I saw the other day. Gangster dressed dude, patched leather jacket and all (I couldn't be sure but I think his patch said "Cosmic Cycles" or something like that), swaggering down the street, everyone giving him a wide berth because of the gigantic red doberman he had with him. Which was wearing a pink plaid jacket.

Gotta love this place.

We have no internet at the new flat so I'll be offline till I get home pretty much. That will be at 8pm on Tuesday evening, by the way. I will be happy to see home and people I can talk easily with, and I am hanging for some fish and chips. But I will be sad because Hong Kong is cool and Joel is Teh Orsome and it's been wonderful adventuring with him here and I'll miss him.
