    Hi from China!

    Hello fellow HUKD peeps!

    I couldn't resist this!

    I've arrived in China now, and my ship isn't sailing for a few days, so I had time to find an Irish Bar (yes, in China) with wireless internet access!

    I can't say this'll be a regular thing, because once the ship sails, I'll be well out of McCawley's Irish bar's wireless range! Hehe.

    Anyway, just thought I'd drop in and say hi!

    Keep those deals a'rollin'

    Yes, been drinking Tsingtao, LOTS of it!

    I take it your son works out here palspal?

    No, he doesn't but hopes to eventually and has wanted to visit Japan since his school days.

    He is based in deepest darkest Wimbledon but travels throughout Europe. He has had goods made in China. If someone could licence the trademark 'Made in China' they would be millionaires.

    He drinks Tsingtao at his local Chinese restaurant, which, believe it or not, is called Chu Chin Chow.

    You got my cigs and drink matey ? hehehe

    It's great here, really cosmopolitan. It's not what most people think China is like.
    Where I am is like an extension of Hong Kong.

    and yes, it is pretty much halfway round the world!!!

    The emerging global economy - within 5 years it is estimated they will be bigger than the current largest - the USA. Have a good one out there cutthroat - lucky you. PS It is piddleing down with rain in old blighty now.

    I agree. I was there a few years ago and it absolutely blows the western world away. I was really really humbled in the sense that the west has not chance of competing with the kind of money and vision that China has right now. Out here it takes years, even decades to build a major road or railway for example. In China they're like, build a railway through Tibet? Sure no problem and boom there it is.

    I don't think I'd ever want to come back if I went to either China or Japan.
