St.Patricks Day, Hong Kong style!

What a cracker of a night out. Surprisingly so as I wasn't able to drink but the europhoria of jigging to Irish music and the atmosphere was enough. It was afterall my first Paddy's day out of Eire yet I felt the Irish do it better overseas!

Weekly update

For the first time I paid to get a 'hexing' ritual... otherwise known as 'Jingzhe' to protect me from vicious gossip. Petty people beware!

Went on a rollerblading photo shoot. We popped by some of the well known HK areas such as Bank of China and IFC. Funny seeing those 'aul security guards shooing us off.

A dissapointment to see my video for New Idol group chopped into a piece of crap. All the effort I put into it! It was cut down to 4 mins from 8, but the issue was the music wasn't cut proportinally so you had jumps like every few seconds.

Finally got a draft of 852 on paper. 25 pages in 2 days! So hopefully it'll pay off somehow. Hate to see all our effort wasted.

What a weekend

Haven't gone out on a good weekend in ages. Considering still I can't eat much stuff and drink.
The mixture of shishah and fatigue were the closest to intoxication I could get.
Had to nitpick some Thai food, made me look like a fool!
Woke up at 1.30pm each day. Yeah!!
HK Live! was great. Despite PixelToy's Mac Book Pro crash things went on fine.

Dublin riots

It took awhile before I realised the implications of Dublin's recent riot. Just to bleedin' wrecked.
What the hell happened?

I don't believe those Unionists and our government could've predicted a safe day for their approved march. Did they honestly think Republicanism is dead? Did they really think we would've just stood by and watch while they hoisted banners of our previous opressors?
A lot of us may not care about the Northern Ireland affair or what the IRA does nowadays. But even the most liberal person would be at least a little pissed off.
From what I heard from my Indymedia colleagues, it seems those skangers were in for a fight. Some hardcore republicans may be the first ones to throw a stone but it was the fucking skangers that crossed the line. You dirty scumbags, you're already a scurge to society and now you try and mask behind patriotism just for a little scuffle with Gardai!
I've been hearing comments about how Ireland is supposed to be a democracy, therefore the Unionist march was just a form of freedom of speech. So were the counter-demonstrators anti democracy? Or were they just expressing their freedom of speech? We really need to redefine our interpretation of 'democracy.' If everybody exercised their rights under the guise of freedom to whatever, it's a wonder we still have a functioning society. Sometimes I thank God for our apathetic culture.
