    Where do I get disposable poop pads from @Natfixit
    I get mine either from Dear Dogs And Cats on Bonham Rd, off Caine Rd Mid levels West. Or I use these TENA bed pads from Wellcome stores. Buy mine in Mui
    Wo. Also Pet Line but these are crap and small. Still , the staff upon showing them a cute pic of our beagle gave me a toy for free. Dog loved it until it was eaten during a stay at the kennel while we were in Singapore. Took dog for walkies this evening but once home, produces a sausage. He hates going in the rain. Well, tough dog biccies because where we are moving to, there will be a lot of rain!

    Yep, wondered what the fuss was about? Was hoping for some real action ( hubby raises eyebrows when i mention this) . No trees on the road, lucky no landslides as we have had a few out where we live, and no roof blown off. ( still remember gum tree falling through ours back in 85.)

    Depends on your insurance. Check your policy. Mine covers me.

    Yes, but these are Hong Kong people we're talking about. They grow sulky when they are not babied. Remember the cold snap in January, people were complaining about schools not being shut to shelter precious little crystal snowflakes (ignore the pun) because they would get sick since the schools have no central heating. They're all weak.

    My classmates and I managed to get up when it was snowing like a bitch and make it into university for 9:30am. A large amount of my classmates had to get in from outside London. We all sat in freezing lecture halls and classrooms. We all survived.

    I wonder how many Hong Kong people can boast of such resilience. Oh, none. They even complained during the cold snap that the schools should all have been shut down to prevent their precious progeny from wasting away.

    Get over yourselves.

    There are two types of people during a typhoon. The ones who enjoy it as a well-deserved break from the hectic working schedules in HK and the ones who make it their duty to make everyone feel bad for enjoying it.

    Hope everyone had a good holiday!

    And those who live somewhere that might actually be badly affected and would care about the reality of the typhoon unlike those blithely unaware such people even exist.
