Go wash your mouth out with soap!


Every building in Hong Kong has a name. Much to our horror and delight, the big, black, ominous, eyesore of a building just down the street from us has a very conflicting name. While perfectly acceptable in Hong Kong, the name of this building should not be taken in vain in the USA. Printed plainly and largely in all caps on the outside of the building is this: GOFUKU

This city is just teeming with undiscovered treasures.

That is tooooo funny! At least you find things to laugh at...I am sure there are a lot of things to laugh at. How tall are you? Are you shorter or taller than most of the natives. I know my husband would look pretty strange towering above them.
