But while im here, the knomo slim brief arrived, I know slim briefs aren't everyones thing and it wasn't on the high end scale as some linked, but im wrapped with it, feels and looks so much better having a brief then a messenger bag when in a suit. Didn't hurt that a couple of colleagues complimented it but being muggle non SF'ers take that with a grain of salt.

I don't drink alcohol, and Milo is actually my jam on a big night out fhx. In Malaysia I had many conversations about Milo, the attributes of Milo, the various ways to serve Milo, how great Milo is, etc.
So much in common.
In other news, I'll be in Melbourne next weekend for the Melbourne Guitar Maker's festival.
Anyone want to come along, take photos, play expensive guitars and generally get excited over musical instruments??
Will be wearing bland streetwear, maximising comfort.
Have been meaning to message you, I loved that Margaret Howell album you showed me the other month. I'm looking at a lot of streetwear for uni.
I guess what others were commenting about is whether you're going to do anything in HK except eat, shop and drink coffee!
Catch a Star Ferry, catch the funicular railway up Victoria Peak, have a cold beer at the Peak Cafe whilst looking down at Stanley on the other side of HK Island, come down from the Peak and then catch a double-decker tram around to Stanley, poke your head into a few different museums, have a look at the temples and antique shops around Cat Street, go to Lantau Island and have a look at the old stilt houses in Tai O, Tung Chung Fort and the big Buddha statue, go a night market up at the top end of Kowloon, catch a bit of Chinese opera, go to HK Disneyland, and so on and so on. It's a very small place, but there's still a heck of a lot to do in HK!
Anyway, I hope that you have a great trip and make sure you post some photos when you get back!
Edited to add: Oh, and you could catch a horse race at Happy Valley, too. I've got no interest at all in horse racing, but when a homeless Pakistani man persuaded me to take him to the races at Happy Valley, I was happy to oblige just for the experience. It was fascinating to go to an entirely ordinary and unexceptional race meeting early on a Tuesday evening and see a grandstand chock-full of Chinese punters whipping themselves into an absolutely frenzy as the horses came around the corner into the home straight. There were no spare seats at all, the grandstand was full, and no-one was sitting down - everyone was standing up, gesticulating, screaming at the top of their lungs as the horses galloped towards the finish line. Quite a site to behold.
You could also go out to Sai Kung. I lived there fore 3 years, though haven't been there for a while. It's a old fishing village that has, in the past few decades, been revamped so to speak. From there you can also catch boats out to various islands and beaches (very nice ones actually).. Also the seafood is good, and fresh as.
Thanks for the thoughts JM - appreciate the opportunities you've listed there. We have a week there (6 nights) and there's no way it can all be shopping and food! Our style of travelling is to avoid the tourist traps where possibe and try and understand the local culture as far as practicable - always up for insights and advice.
Also, the Kowloon walled city is cool. A bit dirty/smelly etc., so it may not be for you, but I love that sorta stuff. Ladder street in Central area is awesome too for little niche shops, especially art and antiques. Plus it's just a cool street.
You could even go to Macau for the day -- some great Portuguese architecture, a few great museums, some awesome forts, good Portuguese food, great antiques. Can't recall any names to be honest as it's been a while. Might have gone downhill a bit in the past 8 or so years with all the new casinos.
Having said that, they occasionally have good muay thai, boxing and mma there if you are into your combat sports :)
I do recommend Sai Kung if you like food though. And it is quite pretty.
I'm thinking I might sell my jukebox. Rockola Imperial GP 433. I never use it much. No tyre kickers.
