Changing Times?

A war correspondent visiting Afghanistan for a second time noted that since the fall of the Taliban, wives that used to walk ten paces behind their husbands were now walking ten paces in front.
The journalist asked one of the men if this was a sign of growing equality.
"No," the man replied, " Landmines."

Riding The MTR Train

I have discovered the best way to ride the MTR is not to take a seat, and this is good because it is not often that a seat is available. The best way to ride is standing with my Manna pressed against my body.As the train accellerates, the closeness of this is very nice, and is far more comfortable to me than the coveted seats that everyone else desires!

Out of the mouths of babes...

One October eve, at the Lam Tin MTR station resturant in Hong Kong , I was having some dinner with my fiance, Manna, and her son Ho Ming. After finishing my dinner and smoking a cigarette, I placed a Listerine Breath Strip in my mouth for the obvious reason. Manna also wanted one for her mouth, as well. Of course Ho Ming also wanted one for his mouth, so I placed it on his tongue for him. If you are familiar with these, you know that they are very powerful, and it was more than the poor little guy expected. As it was stuck securely to his tongue, it was impossible to spit it out. He asked his mother why we put these things in our mouths, and she explained to him that it would make our breath smell fresh after smoking. He then asked her " why did he put it in my mouth? I am not smoking!"

Live life to the fullest

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, and loudly proclaiming, " WOW! What a ride!"

You know a man is in love when he loses interest in his car for a couple of days......
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, loving someone deeply gives you courage..........
The most likely moment for something incredible to happen to me was the moment I was most certain it never would........
