Baby R (not Hritikh)

I'm so excited! My friends, Cow Shake and D, had their second baby this morning. Baby R just missed out on being born on Valentines day (his mum was hoping for that) but that's probably just as well for a kid named after a bollywood heart throb.

Since the parents live on Lantau Island mum had to be taken into hospital by helicopter when she went into labour early this morning. The closest hospital with a helipad was in Chai Wan on the far side of Hong Kong Island.

Tonight me and Cow Shake are going to visit. Because of new rules (post SARS) only two visitors are allowed per day. I feel very lucky and I can't wait!
