A hot day at last! Joey and I journeyed into the city to visit the Queen Victoria markets — something we’ve been meaning to do for ages. I’m not sure what was the most fun; looking at all the fruit and veges that we don’t need to buy, or wandering through the aisles of cheap clothes and complete crap that various dodgy-looking vendors try to sell. The funniest was a battery-operated toy soldier — I think he’s meant to be doing a commando-crawl along the ground, but to everyone watching, they looked like weird homo-erotic groin-rubbing motions. Each time we saw one we burst out laughing.

This evening there was a Bund Christmas barbecue at the house of droo. An untimely event, since Bund Christmas events are usually held sometime in June or July. The obligatory collection of digital cameras and geeky toys were present, as was some magnificent food, and some highly spicy sausages. There should be some photos, probably on cos’ elsewhere, but I can’t find them yet…
