    And technically those 900sqft are only 700sqft.

    Very 'local' symptoms indeed. Here's another: when you ALWAYS walk in the middle of any road, path or lane which is, for example, 5 feet wide. You never ever think in that way you would ALWAYS leave less than 2.5 feet for anyone to pass on your left or on your right. You never ever think if you walk by the left or by the right, you would always leave 3 or 4 feet for people to pass, on either side. Not that you've forgotten all about arithmetics. You've gone 'local'!

    No, I'll keep it on the radar and give it a try.

    Now that I think about it, there is one kind of delicious broth that I enjoy in Hong Kong... at Ippudo!

    When even when you've actually left, you're still lurking in the forums...

    I guess you're not ready to leave then yet.

    When you "clean" your dishes and chop sticks in luke warm tea/water before serving.
