Finally Meeting The Doctor


Am back from Hong Kong. Allow me to geek out a little first. Probably one of the most memorable things getting there was the inflight TV show on SQ. After almost 20 years, i finally got to watch a new sci-fi episode of Doctor Who. It's from the latest season, single episode called "The Lady in the Fireplace". Great story, brilliant twist ending. Always been a fan, remember reading a whole ton of Doctor Who paperbacks when I was a kid. Anyway, if anyone is flying SQ this month, be sure to catch it. Gawd, sounds like I'm working again.

And here's the view from me 4th floor hotel window in Tsim Sha Tsui. Man, you guys should see that United Colors neon sign light up every nite! Right smack in me face! I kid you not.

Anyway, coming back to Hong Kong after all years, I did noticed a few things that have or haven't changed.

1. There are no fat or overweight people in Hong Kong. Despite all the good food everywhere, it's hard to see anyone who's out of shape. Amazing but true. More on the good food in me next post.

2. There sure are a lot African touts at almost every street corner. Just like in Japan, there seems to be influx of them.

3. My Cantonese still sucks!
