Hong Kong

I was in HK last week on business.  I was humbled by how hospitital my colleagues from HK are.  I was taken out to lunch every day (Dim Sum) and I have come home somewhat heavier, though I daren't get on the scales. Three things I learn't last week:
1.  Chinese do actually make very good desserts - especially sponges.
2.  You don't see the number 4 (e.g. hotels don't have a fourth, fourteen etc floor)
3.  There are sooo many people in HK - the noise level in malls and the street take a while to get used to.

Been a long time

Yes. Here is a quick catch-up.

Didn't get back to work full time until April 2013. The rheumatoid Arthritis is a bugger but controlled by drugs. I have had to stop physical activity like DIY. My wrists are not that strong and hurt easily. We lost our beloved Holly in May and our beloved Ben in July. We are still grieving them. Ben actually visited me in my dream last night and it was wonderful.   The day i retire is the day we will get more dogs.   Being off sick made me realise i wanted to get more joy from work. So i changed job, the house is up for sale and we are moving to London. I now spend a week a month abroad. I have visited Dubai, Bangalore, Mumbai and Kolkata so far. Malaysia in a few weeks.  i am working really hard but i love my new job. And now i realise how unhappy i was in my last one. 
So i am not intending on writing prolifically, but maybe i will post a short vid from each trip. 
Keep up the good fight my friends. Sometimes life is cruel and a bitch, but try and keep putting your best foot forward. 
Here is a short drive in Kolkata.
