On the 11th of February I’m flying to Hong Kong, arriving on the 12th. From there I’ll get a ferry to my new job (and, cough, life) in Zhuhai.
This is where it is:
And it looks a bit like this:
It seems to surround Macau.
I’ve got over my nervousness now. Still don’t speak a word of cantonese though.
Holy cow, man. How long do you plan on staying there?
One Chinese year of the dog.
That’s totally awesome man. Good luck to ya. I look forward to reading your stories about drinking Tsing Tao beer with the locals.
can i come?
seriously though how much are flights etc? probably a grand. bums!
If you shop around you can get a flight to Hong Kong for less than 400 quid. If you shop around.
And yes, of course.
that sounds amazing. i’m sure once you’re immersed in cantonese, you’ll pick up the basics soon enough.
have a good time.
Judging by how much Czech I can speak after three years it might be a struggle.
All the best

Re: Hi James!
Thanks, thought I’d lost contact with you. Will try my hardest to write, wish I wasn’t so lazy.
i’m from hong kong. we used to go to macau on holiday, stanley ho, the man responsible for all those stanley casinos, he has that place locked down. so what is your job all about, and how did you get it?
English teaching, easy to get that kind of thing if you have the relevant qualification and some experience. Beyond that fuck knows, I’m going in there a bit blind. Haven’t a clue who or what I’ll be teaching.
Hey James! Fast Eddie from Portugal here. Great to learn you’re doing fine, and what a cool journey. Maybe if you had learned how to speak some portuguese while you were here, instead of just drinking beer, you might get around Macau a little bit easier. How is that chin doing? Anyway, i wish you the best of luck in China and drink away…
