Happy Lunar New Year!

I’m flying back to Hong Kong tomorrow and I’ll just make it in time for the end of the New Year holiday. I’m looking forward to fireworks, rice and seeing my god-daughter again.

The last month here has been a lot of fun and I thought I’d trivialise it by writing an obnoxious ‘best and worst of England’ list. So here it is, innit:

A nice cup of tea for: Nan’s cooking, Coronation St, double-glazing, the BBC, very polite driving and Hindi films in cinemas.

A plague of rats upon: metered local calls, expensive petrol, expensive everything, showers that trickle and people complaining about snow even though it hardly happens.
