My name is Marie. I like to think about stuff and occasionally write it down somewhere.

Sorry, America. It’s all over.
The Chinese have soda water that saves your guts AND your hair. Amazing.
Put all your money on the Taoists at Mt. Qingcheng in the Sichuan province.
They have invented cable cars WITHOUT CABLES.
It was no substitute for a nose, but it sure tasted DAMN FINE (and even a wee bit spicy).
Today in Chengdu, I fell hopelessly in love. Unfortunately, there are other admirers to compete with, as you might well understand.
More on the unfolding romance to come!…
All this week people have been asking me, “So, what do you miss most about Hong Kong?”… especially those at home in Australia may be as surprised as I was tonight to realise that, if I’m honest, the genuine answer is “community”.
Oh and check out the tigerbombers if you get the chance. Go Nat!

Don’t let the wince which ensues upon hearing references to this restaurant being “Japanasian” stop you - the food more than makes up for it. Oh and five fiery stars go to the Dragon Breath Squid. Can you guess which one that is?
We’ve only been back together a few hours, but I’m pretty sure Hong Kong is flirting with me again.
Today, I bought A THOUSAND WORMS!!!
Today was a good day.
So, it seems I make it to NYC for the last night of Chickfactor 2012 with Stevie Jackson (!), Honey Bunch, The Pines and The Softies!
That’s enough silly joy to get me through the rest of this month.
