      Thanks for the comment Yvonne! I would stay clear of the chilli chicken! Yup, when compared to other large cities, HK would appear to have a large number of designer stores/per capita.

    Hi Dax,

    Excellent blog. I definitely see travel/journalism in your future. Picture of food being served on a bed of red chillies was interesting & scary.

      It had not occurred to me that we do not have a good travel channel in Canada like they have in UK & the US. Are you suggesting that I become the next Anthony Bourdain? Here is the Kerala episode: http://bit.ly/ZXf1Ew and a pic of a “sadya” that I attended in Kerala. http://on.fb.me/11sVSuw

    Loved the pictures, maybe become a photographer, instead of journalist.

    This reminds me of the time you gave up having a beer for a whole month, which did you find harder to do. I would say giving up the beer, you were too busy to miss the social media scene, as you had much better scenery this time.

      I would agree. Though I must admit that it keeps me occupied, especially now that I am off the squash and tennis courts for a few more weeks.

    Hey Dax:
    Great blog dude. I think this is a first step toward travel journalism.
    Maybe you could have expanded a bit.

      Thanks Mohan!
      Trying to minimize the info over load by keeping posts short. Day will come when I join the “have money, will travel” set, and blog…

    Hans, Thanks for the comment. Agree with you that travelling through the Far East is an experience in itself. Certainly the hustle and the bustle takes a little getting used to. On the political correctness front, perhaps we take it a bit too far?

    Everyone should travel through the east and experience the colourful culture. Amazing photos! the last photo of your Singapore entry document reminds me of a photo I took while standing in line re-entering Hong Kong from China a few years ago. The was a customs line at the Ferry Terminal that read “This Lane for the Weak and Disabled” Not politically correct but leaves nothing up for misinterpretation.

Do you have a comment or suggestion?
