There’s a gold fish in my room. (Sign of good luck here, but I kinda feel sorry for the lil’ guy.)

Finally headed home on the 27th, through Narita rather than Shanghai -> Hong Kong -> Taipei -> SFO. Was not looking forward to that.

Met these lovely business professionals on my way out of work Friday evening. Obviously off to a charity dinner or church function.

Dinner last night in Lan Kwai Fong which was described to me as “where lots of ex-pats hang out.”
“Ohhh!! White people!” I chortled.

Some random others (think these were around Stanley…)
