A sip before trip

Will be flying off tonight to the city I consider the Rome of the east. Understand the weather is getting rather cold, so I hope it’s cooling to walk around the Forbidden City and not so sweaty when scaling the Great Wall.

A word for fellow devils… the word was written all over the wall since last week. Whenever the media play up a team’s profile against a team in crisis, the latter will surely prevail. Happiest people yesterday were neither devils nor scousers, but the bookies.

In case you don’t know, the national budget was announced last Friday. Plenty of goodies (so it seems) for individuals. If you go into detailed calculations, it amounts to nothing really. And the general feel in the tax circle is that it is a boring budget. Should I dissect it still?

Alright, have a good week ahead and catch you guys next week…

1 year ago… Have you ever tried this before?

2 years ago… Living: Malaysia vs. Hong Kong

I can only say it was a poor devils performance... We lose to Fernando Torres and can you believe, Vidic was sent off for the 3rd time in a row in this fixture!

Pinknpurplelizard said...

The budget wasn't exactly a big bagful of goodies. Sigh... One surety is that prepaid credit cards and debit cards will now be more popular than credit cards.

Enjoy ur hols in Middle Kingdom! :)

Hope you have a great time in Beijing, and do try those hot roasted sweet potatoes vendors hawk on bicycles around most tourist sites. Its tasty and warms your bones when the weather gets chilly, heheh! ;-)

Ah.. should have told you to crack them in half and eat the middle parts away from all the "dirt" .. LOL But I surmise you are not exactly a "farn shu" fan so maybe you aren't missing anything there.

Glad you are safely back home .. the snow pics are really lovely, makes me itching to get on a plane this coming school holidays!!
