I’m still… I’m still Cuntley from the block

David CuBentley says his “heart is at Tottenham” despite having started his football career at bitter north London rivals Arsenal.

“I’m still… I’m still CUBENTLEY from the block”

But thanks for the £7m reported from papers. This is the amount of money arised from the sell-on clause Magical Wenger has placed in the deal that sold CuBentley to Blackburn two years ago.

How does he do it!

£7m even for a cunt that doesn’t play for us no-more. I don’t think anyone can do this other than him.

Top salesman!

Hong Kong People

Now, is it

Hong Kong People

Hong Kong nese

Hong Kong ian

HongKy

Don’t know what we should call ourselves.

All I know is Hong Kong People (HKP) are very hungry, hungry in improving, a better quality of life. It is that spirit in HKP that drive us.

As much as I can reference to is my parents and my generation. There are many problems which the generation below my that I would talk about in a different post.

So who are we HKP. We are a mix culture bunch. Half Westernise and Half Chinese. Although the percentage split is dependent on the route you take. For example I would say I am 60:40 English:Chinese. But if you consider that for the last 50 years, HKP live in a dual society world. Both English and Chinese society co-exist. We celebrate Christmas as much as Chinese new year. I still remember going to a hotel for a Christmas buffet. It was very expensive but you get to eat Turkey (In Chinese, Turkey is pronounced as Fire Chicken!). So it is luxury to have Fire Chicken, even though it is dry and doesn’t really taste that good.

Anyway, my points that we live in 2 worlds. What HKP does well is live in the best of both worlds.

I hope when you meet someone from Hong Kong, you will agree with me here.

HKP has a deep desire to do well. That drive is built in us. So be it that many people live on the short term but many has the same drive. We might be snake headed sometime, but we move forward at pace.

It is a very difficult world to live, and work. It is always a sprint not a Marathon.

But we all live with hope that tommorrow will be better.

At end of this post I just want to say.

Hong Kong People never stops. We never stop driving forward to better things.

The second you stop is the second that someone overtakes you.

Keep Going

Computer Markets

There are a several computer markets in Hong Kong.

The main ones are based in Wan Chai, Mong Kwok, Shum Shi Po, Causeway Bay

They all have their own characteristis and specialities.

I won’t go through them, what I want to talk about is the thought process behind it.

You have hundreds of shop selling the same stuff. It is very competitive.

You can trust them. Don’t think they are there to help you choose you product and what you need. They are there to earn a living, food on the table etc.

There might not be clear pricing. The classic being $5xx $8xx.

The best is let you know how I think when I go shopping there.

First, you must identify what you want exactly. Also give yourself backups, and alternatives, be little bit flexible.

Work out how much it should be.

Then hit the shop, you really have to go to as many shops and check the price out. Remember which shop looked decent and gave you a good price. Sometime it takes me hours to get what I want but at the end I always ask, is it worth my effort. Sometime definitely not, I would only save HK$10  (60p). But I get to say, I got it at the cheapest price and in Hong Kong that counts.

This is a very long winded process everytime and then you start to go to a few shops. They might be bigger chain and staffs are more friendly and the products are good. But at the end, it is price that matters.

In Manchester, we have rubbish service from Microdirect, who provides a good range of products at good prices. But need to improve on service definitely. Also there are computer fairs (markets), I go to those, but you need to pay £3 for entry fee. There are many stands there, many operated by Asians. Again it is a bit like Hong Kong, you need to go round and round to check prices.

I have say, I like doing that!

Long Term Catch-Up

Mind that door

I was going to work. As I appoach the front office door. I saw a young women pulling the door.

Not once, twice in fact three or four time.

I obviously know the door is not broken. You need a keyfob to get in, my dear!

As I appoach the door, I got my key fob out and opened the door.

I asked her what company she was visiting.

She said: “Enviros”

I said “OK”

I also very kindly pointed out to her that there is an intercom panel on the left hand side. That she should use it to gain access not by bute force entry.

I then led her to our office. I told our office support we have a visitior. She then said;

“I am here for an interview”

If I was interviewing her, she would have already failed at the door!

I would suggest that she could do with a little bit more thinking!

Steve, Anthony and Paris

Let me be honest, this is a hilarious story

“Gentlements, don’t be boring” said Paris, as she said down next to Anthony and Steve.

You will ask who the fcuk is Paris.

Well, who the fcuk are Steve and Anthony anyway

I can tell you Simon is Steve,

Both names were made up for a reason, to hide our true identity. “Role Playing so to speak.”

Someone called Paris had a thing for Anthony and really not so much on Steve. oh……

She obvious keen on Anthony. Anthony has kindly brought her a pint!

The funny thing was, Steve was not brothered at all, because she only scored 2 out of 10 on his scale (It would had been 1 out of 10 if Steve was sober!).

In fact, Steve would regard my self very very unlucky if she had anything interest on Steve!

And Steve was keep sending text to Anthony that “She is going to eat you alive”

“Should I tell Paris your room number”

Steve was simply winding Anthony up.

Steve cannot stop taking the piss.

Anthony was trying to tell Steve to get out.

So Steve buggered off.

But Steve REALLY though he need to make sure Anthony was ok.

He came back (1st time)

He saw Anthony as he was about to call Steve outside the pub.

Steve went “How are you ANTHONY!!!”

Anthony: “I am fine, I can handle myself, thank you”

Steve and Anthony then headed back to their rooms.

Steve then though “as courtesy” he should return to the bar to see how Paris was, (2nd Time)

At the end of the day, She was quite Fcuk up, anything could had happened.

As he returns to the bar, he was surprised to see Anthony was there.

So he withdrawn himself back to his room and wrote this blog… … … … …

Next morning, Steve continued the p taking.

Jerry Springer: “Take care yourselves and each other!” echoed by Steve

Garlic Juice

One of my colleague has UN-intentionaly upset our “Scottish” Director.

By saying that Whisky tastes like garlic juice.

OH MY GOD!

But he was right though, I found a distillery is marketing this premium product.

PS think first before you speak. You might upset someone you shouldn’t have.

Chinese Joke

A single Chinese man owns a Chinese restaurant, and one day a beautiful Chinese woman walks in. He immediately walks over and asks her out on a date. She agrees. They go out for a while, and soon, the man proposes to her. She says “Yes, but before we do, there’s something you must know. I have never had the sex, but I’ve read about it.” He says that it’s not a problem, and they are married.

On their honeymoon, the man tells his wife that since she’s a virgin, she can choose what they do first. She says “Oh, most honorable husband. I am honored to be your wife, even though I have never had the sex, but I’ve read about it. So, I have chosen to have the 69.

The husband looks confused, and after thinking about it, he says “You want.. the beef and broccoli?”
