10 ways to ruin Valentines Day.

Today, I witnessed the construction of the first Valentines display to hit my local shops…The array of cards & gifts made me uncontrollably cringe. Before I get coined the love scrooge, I feel the concept of valentines is alright i guess (if you find joy in forcing your other half to spend time with you and receiving generic gifts…I for one wouldn’t be fussed over flowers, they make my nose itch and die after a week anyways.) Personally, I feel that its important to treat your loved ones like princes/princesses every single day and not just over one manufactured day filled with high expectations and complete lack of spontaneity. However, if you fancy mixing up feb 14th this year and feel like being a complete ar**hole, I’ve constructed a list of ways to ruin Valentines Day.

1. Call your date/significant other by your ex’s name. Do this at least 3 times.

2. Take them to an overly priced restaurant and pretend you’ve forgotten your wallet. Let them venture out to use the ATM and once they’ve returned, shout ‘JUST JOKING’ in an extremely high pitched tone.

3. Don’t splash out on chocolates and flowers, a CD containing all of Psy’s Gangnam style remixes should do…dubstep, instrumental and a mash up version if they’re lucky.

4. Make them a cake.






6. Give them a list of things they could improve on, personality wise.

7. Buy a bouquet of roses, infest them with red ants.

8. Wrap up an iPhone 5 box..inside, write ‘I love you’ on a piece of paper and tape to the middle. When they look dissapointed with the lack of smartphone, call them ungrateful and offer them planned play time on yours.

9. Girls, pretend to propose and watch the bastards squirm! (Make sure you film the reactions)

10. Change your cover + profile to a sickeningly cringe worthy edited photo of you and your partner. Tag your close friends & family and await the soppy comments.



Exploring Hong Kong – MX Club (Extreme Sports)

When life in Hong Kong gets rather tedious and Lan Kwai stops whispering my name, my close groups of friends and I like to think of activities to draw our brains and bodies out of our monotonous routines. I think its very important to continue exploring as i can garauntee no one has ever step foot on every part/village/town in this agitative city. (After living here for 23 years, I’m ashamed to say my first trip to Sai Kung only commenced last week.)

So, last Friday we decided to visit the hidden and gloriously underrated, MX club located in Sheng Shui, Fanling. We ended up paying $580 for 1 1/2 hours quadbiking (including gear) and 1 1/2 hours in the BB gun war zone (also including gear). The staff were extremely pleasant and there was absolutely no forced time constrictions or pressure (which you normally find when partaking in similar activities around Thailand etc).

The site included two dirt tracks for beginners & advanced.

Although I did get carried away thinking I was part of the Tokyo Drift crew, I felt very safe and well looked after. The protective gear was still intact, prices were cheap in comparison to other countries, dirt tracks were gratifying and the service was of a high standard. The only downside would be that it is quite the mission, however, it meant I was able to see a hidden part of HK. Even though it took just under an hour a forty five minutes from Disco Bay (by car) I can confidently say, they will be seeing my freckly face many more times this year.

Oh..and i forgot to mention. THEY HAVE GOATS YOU CAN FEED! (easily amused)

Thanks MX Club for an amazing day!
