Several times in the past few years I’ve been in situations where people have been rude and I haven’t responded appropriately, only for it to bug me later. In this case, 4hrs have passed and I’m still irritated. British upbringing suggests that you don’t give people a hard time in public, especially to random strangers, [...]

I love attention to detail, whether that be well crafted things through to signs on stores. I glimpsed this from the Apple Keynote the other day… Any other company there would be a paper on the seat, or someone there saying “sorry this seat is taken”. In Apple’s case a slip cover with the words [...]

Finally found this on YouTube as I often describe to people the concept of the Cambridge spoiled child with the dumb parents who dote after them…  

Spotted this the other week at Cambridge station: Platform hosts ? Kind of sounds like some sort of sex trade !

I think tonight’s experience at my local shops summaries the efficiency differences between Chinese and Western people: * Order Chinese food * Walk into Co-Op (next door) to buy bottle of water. Full of bloody middle aged women (the type that done get the purse out in the queue and then have to dig in [...]

I feel down today. I can’t quite figure the reason. It’s 8:30PM and I’m off to bed. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.
