    Yes it's bad for villages usually and islanders but for the rest you maybe get 0.5 day off and that's about it.

    Lots of talking as I said earlier for not much (thank "god") at the end.
    One of these days, one of these storms will direct hit, making landfall to our west....the conversation will be different.

    It already has - it wo'nt change the fact as I wrote that most of the time..it doesn't.
    There will always be cases where it will be real real bad. But thee cases are extremely rare these days. Some will happen for sure but as I said, in most cases...nope.

    Does not have a Starbucks on the ground floor - 2nd or 3rd floor I think. Next to Crystal Jade.

    Any estimations for Friday for when the T8 signal will be announced?

    It's estimated the typhoon will hit land just east of HK at around 3pm.

    I'm one of those lazy slackers hoping for a few extra hours in bed!
