HONG KONG: THE LAST STRAW?

Ok, so I'm back in Hong Kong AGAIN. I had such high hopes that the place would have cleaned up its act since I fucking slammed the shit out of it earlier in the year. The intervening period could have been a time of great soul-searching for Hong Kong, 'where did we all go wrong Hong Kong etc', leading to a pretty dope 'cycle of change and growth'.

Instead if anything it's gotten even shitter. I can't even look at it really. If I glance at some dude of Hong Kong out the corner of my eye, I just get filled with anger and despair, plus a big helping of 'Dude, you could have fixed Hong Kong ---> Recently'.

I had dinner with Chris Patten once. His wife is called Lavender. And I just mentioned Hong Kong in my last post. Hmm. (synchronicity or stalker?)

Are you going to let him get away with this, my illing brother?

Dear Ms

Holy Fuck it's like the Ghost of Christmas Past, come to drag me down to the underworld and basically smash my nuts up into bits --> in the form of Probst. Is there no escaping this dude? He's everywhere. He's pretty much looking at me right now through a lens (probably), just thinking 'Not long now IOYC, until you die of my Terrible Hand'.

Dear Ors

As if there is a person entitled, Lavender. 'Hey there Lavender, could you please LOL sorry LOL I was just LOL LOLOLOLOL etc'.

Kind regards,

Right.

While I am pleased that you are posting again, I must ask you.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH FOP?

Has he run away with Shirley Clamp? Become Will Baker to Cheryl Tweedy's Kylie?

He is my manager and personal advisor and I am quite literally FLOUNDERING* without him.


* Literally because I am at this very point in time commenting whilst treading water in a VERY deep pool using a new waterproof laptop with wireless enabled. Shiiiz.

Dear Jess

I tell you what, that dude might have been so pumped of a visit to Windmill, Sweden et al that he could have totally fucked up in Japan --> 'Might stay here for a bit - calm down etc'. I hope this is the case, and not a Sinister Happening! Great, a Search to Organise CLEARS DIARY.

Dear Ors,

Just chill out, maybe Fix a Sandwich / Tea, 'Hey, this is a pretty sweet lunch I just made'.

Kind Regards,

"Approaching Lavender" - a song for the ages. Version on 197(3?... maybe 4) TVW7 Telethon album, performed by none other than the golden tonsils, John Laws.

"There is no ssshhhaaaame" - classic Lawsian culture-jamming.

Check it.

And while we had dinner, his driver waited in the car outside for two hours. (That's two hours after his designated pick up time) What funny lives diplomats and pollies live.

How can you say this. Hong Kong may not have it all but it deserves respect. You don't even make a strong argument about what's wrong with it.

This sort of ignorant nation-bashing doesn't help anyone, look at thge riots in Sydney recently (race-related).

You make a good point, Cameron.

No, wait a minute, you're a complete moron. I got confused.

I for one have never heard a stronger case made for a Chinese province being shot into the sun. It demeans us all that they are allowed to continue in this vein, stinking the whole place up with their "Hong Kong" attitude.

ENOUGH!!!

Dear Cameron

Imagine if your Hong Kong arguments were taken to their logical extreme --> 'Oh yeah, I suppose Hong Kong is alright'. Would you feel comfortable looking into the face of a Child and saying that lie to them??

TO AN INNOCENT CHILD('S FACE)???

All for the sake of some bullshit pride of Hong Kong.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time a journalist created trouble in order to have a story to write about...

I'm pretty stunned.
