I intend to find many little treasures and trinkets while on my travels. Casio camera can snap them all. Here a few collected so far...

...soon and I can't wait x
Disaster; no family arrivals yet. THE STUPID SNOW IN EUROPE. Everyone is delayed. Rescheduled flights and upgrades on the way but who knows what will happen. I am going to go to to the tree of hope. Only mother nature has the answers now. Christmas is only 4 days away. We miss you...

Sitting in the window, staring out to see,
Witches with their potions being practised in the street.
Old school surroundings, an antique cash-till standing by,
Baked Spare ribs, the specialty one must try.
This place is such a favourite, CC one day shall return,
But for now music is calling, for which I do so yearn.
(In memory of Mido Cafe & Money Lounge; where the people know how to have a real good time, CC sings Neil Sedaka's classic "Oh Carol" and "Yesterday" with her GS)

...and I love them. Look out of my window and the square is red and glowing. So pretty. I'm hopefully getting a camera for Christmas, then I can snap away and show just what I see.
Oh yes, 45 dollars to me, in my pocket. My first wages. Cardboard for cash. 15/12/09

This is a good website, feel kind of cut off music wise over this side so this little find is treating our ears and keeping us on track. And it's music from around the globe so that's even better! The ones I liked; Fiery Furnaces, Taxi Taxi, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Vampire Weekend.
(Note: "Funny smells can come through your windows if get left open") GS
Application rolling almost.

GS and CC head into Hong Kong Island, Friday night, dressed accordingly, ready to see what the city that never sleeps has on offer...
Orange lucozade in one hand, caramel macchiato in the other. Right, grins on faces here they go for the 50 minute journey (also a ham and egg sandwich all courtesy of 7/11)
Made it. 9.pm. Places on the agenda to visit; Feather Boa, Cheri Cheri, Basement Bar, Club 71. All pretty close together, walking distance. It's humid, busy, quite touristy; Australians, English, they want to escape from the hustle and bustle and find...is there a NQ equivalent? A Common where Claire & Joe might be waiting?
CC's heels are high and so are the roads, escalator(s) seem like the better choice of transportation! Still no drink yet, their mouths are dry, their faces warm...where to go, where to go?
30 minutes later find a quiet little drinking portal 'Sapphire'; Chocolate Martini & Singapore Sling please. Ada the owner sends them on their way, in search of Fringe Club.
FClub is good/interesting, has potential. Roof garden is very very pretty, surrounded by little fairy lights, tiny light bulbs, encased in by the mass sky scraper buildings. Drinks; Sol & Pink Gin. Certainly not a place that goes by the rules of service with a smile. Unfortunately no Claire and Joe making an appearance tonight, no one really around to be friends with...they guess in time that might change. For now Mr and Mrs Cheung can tuck into their Fish & Chips and a tasty Double Burger, finish their drinks and head back to the mtr. Their peaceful little palace is waiting and seems even more enticing.

Some good Music today;
Só Danço Samba: Ella Fitzgerald & Duke Ellington
Crimson and Clovers: The Hollies
Vicious: Lou Reed
Ghosts: Laura Marling
Don and Sherri: Matthew Dear - Hot Chip remix
I am determined to learn Só Danço Samba.
Unpacking is good. Our clothes together on the shelves. Nice.

Discovered a place to get super chicken chow mein, right on my doorstep! Also, purchased some great lighting from another good shop - shop called Homeless. Overall a good day. Still raining a bit though. Realised that doing a food shop isn't so cheap; definitely Sainsbury's prices not Asda.
And been married a whole month now x

HK had some more visitors 3rd December, and we had our first. It was fun fun. Delicious... and I ate Frogs legs. And they did taste like chicken! Dancing to some good music. Drinking Passionfruit Pleasures. Chatting some scary chat. Taxi home for $200.
Thanks Kimmy & Jens x

Starting our married life under a different part of the sky, where the sun is shining high. Opened the door to our new home, our new life, our new adventure.
