Recent barks from the political side of the world (Look out your window- it's the noisiest, tackiest area in sight) have really managed to hit a certain glossy red button with the words 'IRRITATE ME' embossed on it. The barker in question happens to be one Dr. Siti Mariah Mahmud, Member of Parliament for Kota Raja, which, though not located in my neighborhood, is too close for comfort.

|Heart on a Plate. Where it Belongs.|
I never really cared much for birthday parties and the like till recently- I've even forgotten my own birthday once- but it has grown on me a little. I don't ask for it, nor do I expect it- but I've gotta admit, all the attention is rather nice. As thanks of sorts, there shall be no mercy in the composition of this post, that ye who are being written about may enjoy every word. Have a pinch of salt ready if you like- some nonsensical text is on the way.

|Gunpla 30th Anniversary|
It just so happened that I happened to be in Hong Kong just in time for the Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong (ACGHK) exhibition. Even better, I'd read about it just a few days before, having had no idea of its existence until I arrived on the island. To add more sugar to the mix, I got to go on the very first day of the exhibition, which also happened to coincide with Bandai's 30th anniversary... ah, joy.

|See the dragonfly... helicopter?|
The journey by ferry from Macau to Hong Kong took about an hour. Passengers weren't allowed up on deck- in any case there wasn't much of a deck, and I doubt there was anything particularly eye-catching on the way, so it really didn't matter. The boat was pretty comfy too- nice big soft seats, spacious, and air-conditioned- perfect for the footsore traveler.

Ah, Macau, Macau. A lot like Hong Kong, only a lot more cramped. Yet a million times more interesting and prettier looking than Zhuhai, where I was just minutes ago. Took the border crossing- before I knew it I was in Macau. It's that close. I thought that there would be a bridge, or something... instead I just got my passport stamped and crossed an imaginary line.

|Pier for the ferry-taxi service.|
Arrived in Guangzhou around 8.30 in the morning. Hit a spot of trouble- couldn't find the bus that was listed in the guide I compiled back home- a problem easily surmounted by asking around and taking a different bus, though after getting off I walked blindly past my street and had to double back. Not fun at all, especially with the sky threatening to leak on me again.
Finally reached the river- the hostel was somewhere there. I knew I was on the right bank, but had no idea whether to turn left or right. Grabbed hold of a passing lady who offered to walk with me in the right direction- coincidentally the direction she was taking to work. The whole exchange was a lot more peaceful than it sounds, really.

Memes, however, are fine, and I don't mind standing back at a safe distance to watch the play unfold. I don't take part, however. That being said, there are exceptions to the rule, this 'playlist shuffle' meme being one of them. I can't remember when I completed it, but the basic premise is this: enable shuffle in your media player, and click next. Each track is the answer to one question. Here we go, then...
