Happy Birthday Buddha

Monday, May 12th, 2008

It’s Monday and I’m sitting at home still un-showered and working on comics.  Today is a public holiday here in Hong Kong.  It’s Buddha’s birthday!  Who am I to argue?  Sadly though, public holidays are a double-edged sword.  Sure you get the day off, but unless you feel like pushing through crowds of people everywhere you go, you pretty much just sit at home all day. Like I’m doing.

We say Iron Man on Saturday afternoon and it was awesome.  I’m a bit of a fanboy when it comes to comic book to movie adaptations and I know many of them aren’t that great.  Iron Man definitely lived up to the hype in my opinion though.

After the movie, Muse and I split up and went with our friends to different places.  Me and my friend went to Sham Shui Po to go to the computer and game malls to look for a Sony PSP for me.  I thought about getting a second hand system but decided it was too much risk for too little discount.  So I went for a new one.  Unfortunately all the cool colors of the new ‘slim’ PSP are all twice the price (or more) of the standard black, white or pastel colors.  So I found a shop that still sold the ‘fat’ versions.  They had a few of the limited Japanese releases so I went for one of those.  Just to make Colin jealous if nothing else.

My blue PSP

Oh yeah, that is a metallic blue Sony PSP.  Only released in Japan but everything ends up in Hong Kong eventually.  Sometimes I love shopping here in Hong Kong.

Easter in the Far East

Thursday, March 20th, 2008

I’ve got a long holiday coming up tomorrow. We get both Friday and Monday off for Easter, which is surprising considering how little Christianity there is in Hong Kong. Or maybe there’s a lot of it about but it’s just not forever being rammed down your throat like it is in the States. Either way, that is one more thing I like about this place. I’m thinking Muse and I should go visit the giant sitting Buddha on Easter Sunday. Just for kicks.

In other news, I’ve launched another web site but it’s still being tweaked at the moment and not ready for the official unveiling yet.  Thanks to Yoshi (as always) for helping me figure out how to change a few things.  I really need to learn CSS.  Anyway, I’ve got a lot of work to do on the new site over the weekend, so I’ll be posting all the important information (like the URL) on that next week.  Let’s say Monday if I can hope to be so optimistic.  I’m excited.  Seriously.
