hey…hung out with my sister who is visiting from London all day yesterday…walking around mong kok etc…then got the second season of desperate housewives on DVD finally and started watching that with my girlfriend…MSN was back on so i was enjoying access to that damn thing again yesterday…

i managed to upload photos from the 张家界 part of the trip yesterday…CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS!!! i didn’t have time to add any comments to each one of the individual photos…but you can read through my journal entries on our forum to find out about the trip…crazy that’s all i have to say…Hunan is a crazy crazy place…

today’s the last day of 2006…it has been one insane year for all of us in King Ly Chee…started off the year with the release of Under One Flag and playing some amazing shows…then touring parts of Europe…then opening for The Bouncing Souls…then having two members leave…then have two members join…then writing new songs…starting Start From Scratch Records…moving into a new bandroom…have it flood…move into another bandroom…play shows in Macau – play 2 songs and then forced to stop…then play a few more shows and the first show back in HK with the new KLC lineup in Oct at City U…playing old songs like Lik Kit again…played our first ever acoustic show at the Star Ferry…went back to Thailand and played in front of over 1,000 punk/hardcore/metal kids at YOS Fest…and now we’re back in HK and finishing off the year.

if 2006 has been one crazy year for all of us in this band…2007 is going to be even crazier with all the things that are going on in King Ly Chee land. trust me – to all our supporters WORLDWIDE – 2007 is going to be an amazing year for you guys and girls who have joined the King Ly Chee army to help us and Asian hardcore…we’re starting off with an amazing April tour which i’m confirming now – but that tour includes playing in Beijing again!!! we haven’t played there since 2000 so that’s a big deal for us…Man wants to make sure we have a new album out in 2007 so that’s another part of our plans :-) so that means more new songs, more tours, more work for King Ly Chee to go through…

can’t wait to see what happens in 2007 for us…

thank you for being with us for the past 7 years…thanks for your support and love if you have just joined King Ly Chee recently and thanks for sticking around through all the up’s and down’s of this band’s life. through struggles we build character and learn through our mistakes to become better people and are grateful for people’s forgiveness and true friendship and love.

2007 – BRING IT ON! :-)

YO! i’m back in hong kong! actually – i got in yesterday but we had such a crazy trip that i needed the day to rest yesterday. Hunan province is CRAZY…totally backwards…people spit all over the place, there’s trash everywhere…i’ve written about it on our forum so go to this link to read the journals that i wrote about the trip: CLICK HERE! i’ve got photos from the whole trip but i can’t upload anything right now. i don’t even have access to hotmail or MSN right now so that sucks even more. i’ve talked to my friends and people who DON’T use netvigator have all their access to websites back to normal…it seems all netvigator users don’t have full access to things yet. THAT SUCKS!!! i called netvigator last night and they said it should be back to normal by today…but its 9am right now and its still not back to normal.

anyway – our last day in hunan was crazy…we took an overnight train that was supposed to only take 9 hours. so we took a 9pm train. it was supposed to arrive in Changsha at 6am so that we could go to the airport and take our 10:40am plane back to hong kong. instead – the train arrived somewhere near Changsha at 7:45am and then it just stayed there!! it stayed there without giving us any annoucements about what was going on or what we were waiting for. and we stayed there until 9am! we had to check in at the airport at 9:10!!! so we were late for sure…people started getting really angry and yelling at the train staff. one person had a 9:30 plane and he was about to punch them! hahaha…it was crazy. then some passengers were able to convince the train staff to open the door so they can get off and someone was going to pick them up. of course, a bunch of other passengers followed them off the train. i jumped off too and the train staff started begging me for getting back on. they kept saying that the train was leaving soon and that i should get back on the train. alison was still on the train so i had to come back but i kept telling her to come off. the train staff held her back and then asked her to calm me down and ask me to get back on the train. instead she started yelling at them and telling them that we have a plane to catch and that they haven’t given us any information on what was going on and when we were going to move.

finally i got back on…the train left like 10 minutes later and we didn’t get into Changsha train station until like 9:30…then we had to get a taxi from the train station to the airport which was 30 minutes away. the taxi stand at the train station was of course crazy…there was no line – people just jumped in whenever and wherever they wanted. people were fighting to get a taxi…it was so stupid.

finally we got to the airport and landed in HK…i have NEVER been so happy to be back in hong kong where things work, where people know what “service” means, where the air is so much better then many many parts of china, where trash is in the trashcan, where people don’t spit on the streets, where people don’t smoke on buses with the windows closed…oh man – can’t believe how much i missed Hong Kong on this trip!!!

hey – i’m leaving today for about a week so everyone have a wonderful christmas/holiday break! i don’t celebrate christmas but i do have to say that this is always a very special time of the year because everyone is in a good mood and enjoying each other’s company…the only people that i’ve noticed, however, who DON’T enjoy this part of the year are people who are single. i remember that from when i was single too – everyone always looked so nice walking around with their loved one’s snuggling up from the cold etc., and there i was the single loser dude walking around. hahahahaha…those were the times! hahahaha…i remember that i just used to skateboard as hard as i could during these days so i could myself from going nuts. ANYWAY – i’ll be back in about week to update this page…i’m going to Hu Nan province and a few of those days i’m staying in a very tiny village so i DOUBT they have internet there (but i’m sure there must be one somewhere) but i’ll check the forum/myspace while i’m there…

today there’s another little gathering at the Star Ferry in Central (old one not new)…please check it out if you have time:
the section after this part:
23/12/2006 星期六 2:30pm 舊天星碼頭
完善第一節規劃大會的討論,提出可行的「復修天星 保留皇后」人民規劃案”

there will be several music performance and jam section at 5:00pm in Queen’s Pier, please come and support your local culture.”

people are storing animals in a tiny apartment here…what the hell is going on? dogs and cats trapped in tiny cages in an apartment with no one taking care of them. police found a small cramped apartment with over 100 animals inside. they think that it’s probably used as a warehouse for these animals before they get taken to pet stores around HK. G has always told me how much she hates these pet stores because of all the animal cruelty that goes on…if indeed this apartment is connected to these pet stores, then her thoughts are totally correct…

sometimes life is stranger than fiction isn’t it?

started to write some new songs yesterday…don’t know where it’s heading but felt good to work on some new stuff…

tomorrow i’m going to Hu Nan province in china!!! it’s going to be awesome…i’m going with my lovely girlfriend for about 10 days…it’s going to be cold but the places we’re visiting are going to be beautiful…
