I am looking for a real café, a refuge with comfortable chairs, decent coffee and no music  where people can settle and work or read or talk to friends. And come back again and again, and meet people and be treated to thoughtful service so they feel as if they belong.  I can’t find one. Is this so difficult? So far, if the coffee is good, the chairs are uncomfortable, or the service is so so – and if it is cool and trendy-looking, the staff think they qualify for the hipster of the year award, and don’t really have to interrupt their conversation to see what you would like. If the service is friendly, the coffee’s not so great. And there is probably music… If there was such a place I am certain people would keep it alive by spending money and telling people about it.

Well here I am back in sunny KK, O best beloved. I had a wonderful time, lapping up London, then spending a week with my family at my youngest son’s flat in Barcelona. Then back for another week to do the usual admin, and here I am.

The news of the four Chinese lady tourists having been detained for 18 days over some immigration issues is very disturbing. The Chinese Consulate in KK has issued a public letter demanding an explanation for reasons why these four Chinese lady tourists have been given the seemingly harsh treatment of detention in comparison to tourists from other countries. .

I REFER to last year’s water-wave like news on education in that there have been a number of proposed ideas and/or thoughts to revamp the education system that is reminiscent of ups and downs of water on a beach.  .
