Signs

One of my colleagues said this week that she is having difficulty getting students to talk about their own lives. 'They don't seem to do anything except cook, clean, go to Tesco and look after the kids' she complained.

'Replace kids with work and that sounds just like my life' I said. It's lucky I still have holiday photos to blog. Since I got back, work has consumed most of my time. I'm doing more hours this term and the start of the school year is a very busy time.

Anyway, here's more stuff from HK:

First of all, my old home, right above this sign. It was weird to see it with someone else's curtains up.


And my old work had changed too. The same mural was still up in the classroom with some noticeable additions. I told my ex-colleague she should be flattered but then she asked if I had noticed the messy sentence at the bottom.


I love the way that the elderly are depicted in public service notices in HK. This one is as good as the one with cheerful and cute old ladies with buns getting pickpocketed by somone who looked like Hamburgler.


Does anyone actually bother to look at this notice except for me? I had fun figuring out what each of the pictures meant.


And I thought these were kids' clothes until I saw the sign...

If only you had known that a certain someone has a particular penchant for dog's clothing...

You would allow Knuffy to wear a kimono or Hello Kitty camouflage frock? You are such liberal parents!

Well, you saw the photos of the time he redecorated the Helly Kitty bedsheets into "Hello Knuffy"! Who knows, he might turn out to be a fashion designer when he grows up!

No dog and especially no clothing! I saw Tesco's Christmas brocure yesterday, they are selling hoodies for dogs!
