We made page 3

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

New Years Eve started with some touristy sight seeing, moved on to partying in the night club district of Lan Kwai Fong and ended up with our mugs on page 3 of the South China Morning Post - a major daily paper. We had an epic nights craic.

We headed down to Lan Kwai Fong around 8:00 p.m. so we could get a table in a bar before the whole district was packed. Already most tables had been reserved, but we were able to get a table in a small, airy, corner bar for a reasonable minimum buy. We started playing drinking games where the loser would have to do something silly. Increasingly that something silly involved doing some kind of dance in the street.

Apparently making an ass of yourself is a great way to get positive attention here, and before long waves of strangers wanted to take their picture with us. The paparazzi treatment only encouraged us, which increased our novelty value and so on. Pretty soon we had the whole bar doing our ridiculous dance routine. Imagine: climb the ladder, climb the ladder, pull the rope, pull the rope, and the sprinkler, and the sprinkler... Die off.

Anyway, at some point we attracted the attention of a photographer for the South China Morning Post who pulled us out of the bar for a mini photo shoot. If we only had made the front page... Anyway page 3 makes for a pretty good souvenir.
