Well quick one-night trip to Beijing and it looks like it might even be a success? We'll see later this week, but might even make some money before the year ends. That would be nice. Dinner at "Made in China" one of my FAVORITE spots in Beijing. Afterwards my translator took me (don't laugh) to LUSH Bar in Wudaokou. I was a bit old for the hot young crowd, but being with my sexy translator who's a young lady from Changsha made me look much younger. The day ended even better than it started.

ARGO is such a wonderful movie.....perfect story telling, every character actor perfectly cast and beautifully understated acting by several of the actors. The housekeeper's scene at the Canadian ambassador (Ken Taylor's) residence gate is Oscar worthy. Yay CANADA!! George Clooney sure knows how to pick them and Ben Affleck has finally made another good movie. The Beverly Hilton reminds me of my movie financing days....spent more than a few nights in that dog of a hotel haha.

Took the train to Venice. 5+ hours, but who can pass up a trip to Venice? Plus train rides in Italy are a joy in themselves. Night train back tonight and then straight onto the flight back to HK. Hectic but stimulating. Some of the Italian women sure know how to dress with élan!! If you love COFFEE like me skip "Cafe Florian" at Euro 15 per cup. SO MANY great coffee shops in Venice where insanely good coffee can be had for Euro 2.5.
A "few" of you enjoyed my new story haha. Oh well it's too long to attract much attention. Thanks to everyone who read it and left a nice comment.

Well I have always wanted to enter a contest and now I've finally managed it. Had to rush, but hope some of you like it. My Ayako series is still soon to come, a beguiling half-Japanese leading lady to tempt you all. Anyways, no expectations on winning or anything, but just wanted to participate in the competition.

Watched Jean de Florette and Manon de Source again. Difficult to take, especially the last scene. Certainly on par with The Godfather parts 1 & 2 as far as film making go. Daniel Auteuil, cast against type, gives one of the greatest performances ever.

Well my second story should hit 60K views today which is some sort of a milestone I guess. I have several new ones to publish including my new "Ayako" series about a half-Japanese temptress. I also hope to finish my competition entry in the next day or so to get my "spicy" story into the contest which will be the first contest I have actually finished a story in time to enter. Not much time to be on Lush or to write these days unfortunately.

Hitting Spasso tonight for some dancing and relaxation with David and some of his staff. Hopefully the deal goes through in the coming weeks. Back to Hong Kong late tomorrow if all goes as planned. It was hot & humid today (typical Bangkok) with some thunder storms. At night Bangkok can sometimes have the most spectacular lightning storms.

Getting ready for a quick one or two day jaunt to Bangkok (Krung Thep Nakhon), City of Angels, Land of Smiles, home of the 4-Faced Buddha and one of my fav restaurants, Zanotti's. I also plan to have coconut ice cream at the Oriental sitting beside the Chao Phraya River watching the Hummingbirds feed. Be back to Honkers in one or two days.

Back in Asia after a nice break in London. I've got my "Team GB" overpriced T-shirt and I gave business to the over-priced London restaurants so I did my part to stimulate Europe's economy. Time change is kicking my ass.

London was cold and windy and had a little bit of rain today. Nice to have a story go over 60,000 views. Not much time for writing or reading these days??????? Japanese food tonight!!

Wow Typhoon #10 in Hong Kong last night. Howling winds, ripping rain. Today you can see whole trees pulled out of the ground and pieces of leaves and trees plastered to the 30th story windows. With the airport closed and Beijing in chaos due to rain and flooding I was sort of "grounded" and decided to just stay put for a few more days.

Well a rather fetching young lady surprised me with tickets to Batman. Friday night turned out to be more exciting than I thought it would. Serendipity....never under estimate serendipity!
