Another month, another hilarious horoscope! Well, maybe not hilarious, but mildly amusing. Well, maybe not mildly amusing, but may raise a weak smile. Well, maybe not a weak smile, but a WTF grimace…
Following a failed bid for Greenland…
That terrifying moment when you’re looking for an adult, then realize you are one…
Hong Kong Protests: At least now most people know we are in #China, not #Japan. #Silver Lining of the Day
All Over Hong Kong…
Lennon Walls and graffiti expressing solidarity and inspirational messages.
Meanwhile In Sai Kung…
After a bracing walk in a category 8 typhoon (compared to Mangkhut, Wipha was for wimps), I eventually came across the Kung’s Lennon Wall.
Subversive, witty and a bold political statement. It’s got to be Banksy.
“Would you like peas or beans with your fish fingers tonight? Love, Mum x”
“Don’t forget to pick up dog food! Love, The Dog x”
“I’m throwing away a box of old socks. Does anybody want them? Jane (63G)”
Ok, ok, that last one I lifted straight from the Gem Villa WhatsApp group. Apologies to my neighbor at 63G who wrote it. Incidentally, I did take a look at the socks. They were a bit holey, none matched, and they had clearly never been washed, but I took them home anyway as a peace offering for the dog. (Despite his burgeoning talent as a graffiti artist and sprayed reminders all over Sai Kung, I had once again forgotten to pick up dog food.)
Send your pics of the world’s most uninspiring graffiti (f)art by email to: MissAdventureRTHK@gmail.com. Or why not have a crack at it yourself? All you need is a can of spray paint and unflinching optimism that you will not be extradited to the Mainland to face trial for your unspeakable crimes against The Art World.
“Gone to join the revolution! Can you leave my fish fingers in the oven, Mum, and pick up dog food for my babe? Love, Missy x”
Today in Hong Kong it was 9 degrees hotter than it was in London and thousands of people staged a peaceful sit in protest inside Asia’s busiest airport. Number of planes that did not take off on time: zero.
Meanwhile in the UK… planes and trains have melted, combusted or ground to a precautionary health and safety standstill with passengers trapped on board or stranded by the apocalyptic chaos. Sky News broadcasting blanket coverage of London burning. Close ups of Londoners resembling sweaty extras on The Walking Dead complaining of missed connections, hot burning sensations, melted shoes, suspicious smells suggesting exploded sewage systems, screaming kids and snotty faces. Let’s hope those 20,000 extra bobbies Bojo’s pledged will be put to immediate good use, precision trained in the art of handing out water, sunscreen and pro-Bojo flyers that can be easily adapted into paper hats, fans and planes that take off on time.
And so it begins… I must be hallucinating, right?

Little did she know where he’d end up (the less amusing half of a comedy double-act with a dead kipper).
What’s in a name?
Well, Boris promises to:
In fact, as PM he will be:
(But he’s probably not the worst shit in British politics.)
