We arrived during the first band's set, 'J.O.Y.':
On Friday, my research group at the university and I all took an afternoon off and headed to nearby Saikung for a boat trip (as some sort of end of semester party...)
As I'm planning another trip next weekend, I thought it'd be good for everyone who's going (most of whom have AnD profiles) to see what's in store. Unfortunately my camera started crapping out on me (something wrong w/ the brightness sensor or something), so i was having problems taking decent pictures. I was able to get some nice ones despite ...Read more
Thursday night a few of us went to the Hong Kong Dog Rescue Charity Fundraiser event that Rosemary V helped organize. It was in a sushi restaurant in Times Square. I took a bunch of pictures of the event's highlight - a super-model studed fashion show (right down the middle of the restaurant!)
Take a look:
Welcome! This was the sign board all the celebs posed in front of for the press on ...Read more
while poking around the web i came across this bizarre story from Asian Bite:

Last Saturday I rode my bike from campus to Sheung Shui up near the China border. I had been planning on doing another ride on sunday, but we had record storms that day (flooding, lightning, you name it).
I was busy Monday and Tuesday, so my bike has been sitting up in Sheung Shui since Saturday. I locked it up good and had the cover on, AND parked under a footbridge, so it was fine.
The question was, where to ride today? Back home or onwards and upwards...Read more
More than one of my Japanese friends couldn't help but make sure I heard that Miss Japan won the Miss Universe competition held today in Mexico:
MISS UNIVERSE® 2007
This evening, during one of the year’s most exciting live international television events, a star-studded panel of judges chose Miss Japan, Riyo Mori, as MISS UNIVER...Read more
To answer Mariana's request, I typed up a brief tutorial on how to use gmap-pedometer to do route maps (using Google's Maps). Gmap-Pedometer is apparently designed for runners to make maps of their runs. I use it for biking, it also works for any sort of travel - driving, flying, whatever). The key point is that it shows the distance of whatever path you draw on the map!
Its relatively simple to use, just go to Read more

an EXTREMELY mild 6/10 for this one! one step away from a rotten in my book! (i thought it was less /not-rotten/ than pirates 2, if thats possible!)
clocking in at 2:45, not including the credits, this movie is all over the map (literally) and the story is more convoluted than even Pirates 2!
But unl...Read more
Last night after work i was going to try going to wushu again, but sometime during the course of the day one of the muscles in my back started getting tighter and tighter so by the time i got downtown i was pretty sure trying to work out would be a really bad idea. Instead I grabbed a quick dinner w/ several of the AnD usual suspects. We were planning on rendezvousing with the ballet girls that night, but one of them got sick so we postponed it.
So instead we retired to SmellyDoubt's casa de completely heterosexual...Read more
