See if you can smooze someone into getting you into the China Club for lunch or dinner, spectacular - if I was there I would take you in.

It has some of the best modern and art deco Chinese art anywhere...

I heard the storm was bad, I was talking to a mate of mine who lives there today, he said 150km winds yesterday arvo, thought the windows were going to give up...

Get yourself down to Happy Valley... maybe win a few dollars - or whatever they use there these days.

I'd trade places with ya I leave tomorrow for Lakeland Florida.... the last time I went there is was such a mess and it apears that I'm stuck in the same hotel again..... With the same bunch I went with last time..oh they are ok just borring (all married and have no life).

After work go to local dinner, eat....talk shop... drink coffee.... go back to hotel and crash out...

At least the chow and my drinks are paid for....Gasp! did I say drinks? none of them drink anything harder than soda pop..... So I'll just go ahead and get a glass of wine or two..three?
