Who would have thought these little humble plastic toy could provide hours of fun on a boring day off from work. Just mindless combinations of silly parts was so much fun. Pontikis are plastics of geometrical shapes with various mini parts that serve as features that one can express creativity that does not even need to make sense. Trading your pontiki parts with friends brings more crazy possibilities! Fun!

Before we knew it, we had our family extended to more two and four legged members. Waking up to barks, meows, chirps are noises we have accustomed ourselves to recently. Strangely these animals seem to tolerate each other's existence with some even becoming the best of friends. It's strange world.

It was off to a gloomy start when we arrived in Hong Kong. With the heavy mist and rain that shrouded the entire surroundings, making our first ever purchase on the pearl of the orient an indispensible brolly. We were almost never leaving the hotel for the next three days without it, and I must say I was almost annoyed by the constant transition from wet to dry and dry to wet again. Photo opportunities were scarce due to constant rainfall, shopping areas were limited to indoors only. Food wasn't fantastic, not forgetting to mention the fact that were cheated right under our noses. People were always rushing constantly there was hardly any "laid backness" anywhere. Streets were filled with citizens walking in every direction possible, oblivious to the crowds they had to squeeze through. Overall though, shopping was a winner, with tons of things to rumage through in buildings that hardly had a tinge of glamour on the exterior. The most interesting places to shop probably look the least interesting. I wouldn't mind having another go in Hong Kong but not with the rain again.
