19 Feb 2012 – Catch-up Time
Sat: great to catch up with Richard (HongSze’s cousin) & Judy who are here on their annual visit from Sydney/Oz. Tkx for lunch and congratulations to them for their first grandchild to be born sometime soon! This is also catch up time with HS. Glory***our usual local food joint was OK, have had better other times. Back to the apartment for fruits, wine and cake. Appreciations to R&J for bringing the cake.
HKG FB friends are into some provoking political discussions concerning Tang’s wife comes under scrutiny over basement. The Buildings Department has launched an investigation into chief executive hopeful Henry Tang Ying-yen’s wife and others over an illegal ‘underground palace’ at her house in… tkx to Helen for the funny. Henry Tang is the guy with the band-aid on his chin 🙂
Not being religious nor political inclined, do not get into these discussions but will follow with the HKG news as objectively as possible. After all that is where the MacLehose Trail is and will be heading in that direction soon.
My comment to this whole issue: 又要马儿跑，又要马儿不吃草 and the English version You can’t eat your cake and have it too! The usual sentiments to the HKG FB friends – people will say and think as they pleased no matter how senseless, that is not within your control! They probably think that we are senseless too, when not agreeing with them.
Just live and enjoy life with the best intentions of not harming others by words or actions.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and to USA family & friends, have a safe long weekend for President’s Day on Mon!
In politics the middle way is none at all – John Adams/2nd USA President
You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog – Harry S. Truman/33rd USA President
