It all started with this letter...
Date: Monday, 5th March 2001
I stumbled into your HP while trying to look for some info's on jungle MC's.. I'm a D&B promoter in HK and we've been doing' parties for 16 months.
I checked your streaming audio and I was impressed (actually, I liked you already before checking them out just coz you're a Cancerian). and I was wondering if you still emcee and maybe we can try sort out something so you'd come out to HK to MC for us?
it's just an idea, we can talk about it more if you're interested.

I arrived in HK around 8:00PM Thursday 24th May and met Jane from Cloud 9 at the Airport. After checking in at the hotel we headed down to an Irish pub where I quickly devoured a pint of Guinness, which I might add cost me nearly $20 Australian. Ahh, always worth it though.
This pic is of me trying chicken feet, yes, chicken feet. Many people have asked what it tastes like and what else can I say? It just tastes like chicken. Here's the pic to prove it...
This next pic is of my hotel... just kidding, but it was behind my hotel and I just thought it would be an interesting picture, so here it is...
Saturday afternoon was time for our radio interview at the local radio and television station RTHK. The first picture is of myself and Damian (Dieselboy) out the front of the building, the second is inside during the interview.

Afterwards it was shopping time, again. Damian has a fierce shopping habit and a penchant for collecting toys so after I couldn't handle the pace any more, I left to go set up at the club...

Sunday was sleep day, then Monday came, my last night in Hong Kong. My flight was leaving at 11:20PM so a big dinner was organised at the "Outback Hotel" which mind you makes great "Bonza salads" and "BBQ Kookaburra wings" haha. Below, in order, are...
|The team mascots. One of Dieselboy's nasty looking collectors toys shagging the Koala I bought Jane.|
|Damian "Dieselboy" with his beautiful "Dieselgirl", Ramie. What a cute couple.|
|Dieselboy, Jungle Jane and Assassin|
|Johnathan and James getting out of hand haha.|
|The whole crew, minus the bonza salad.|
