A constant nusience

As the weather in HK sores - the bugs about are out in full force......

The mini gecko's seem relatively friendly enough, i can deal with the frogs (for whom is must be mating season, population has quadrupled!) constant croaking but the mosquito's are a pain in the arse though, one even flew into my coffee yesterday.

& these horrible things i cant stand;

That's why they all need to diiiiieeee!


Really though, i need a 45th floor apartment. They cant climb that high....... Surely?

Acid Bomb City

MongKok , for those who don't know, is one of Hong Kong's busiest shopping areas. It is the home of so called sneaker street, ladies market & many dodgy food stalls that are so iconic with Hong Kong. Weekend numbers in the area can really become rather ridiculous.

In the light of the recent 'acid throwing attacks' in MongKok the government is offering a HK$900,000 reward and you would think someone must have some info about the situation. But suspected triad involvement makes it all a little harder to determine. Lets hope they find who's behind it sooner rather than later.

* On another note, SneakerFreaker has a good article which looks at sneaker street's future in an ever redeveloping Hong Kong
