Death Cab For Taxi Driver in HK

Posted in taxis by expatatlarge on June 28, 2009

I was going to post the about the amazing article before this one (scroll down after you’ve checked this one out), and maybe if I have time I’ll chat tomorrow about building standards over here, but for the moment, this is the one that grabbed me!

What is it about Australians and taxi drivers in Asia? E@L has never been quite so pissed off as to be complicit in one’s death! Holy shit!

    Sav: there is a reason I will only live in older low-rise apartments.

    DH: I didn't realize he was a WWI Digger. I think the landing at Anzac cove was the last time any Australian said “oath”. And it was to do with not taking notice of anything Winston Chuchill said.

    He was probably having a Rolf Harris moment.

    I'm on a commenting crusade. Trying to win people back from Twitter.

    I hope no one had moved their stuff into that tower yet.

    On topic it is never above some bogan from the suburbs to rises above the reality that he/she should not be allowed to leave the country as they will made a national disgrace of themselves. From the images I saw of this buzz cut Aussie fella he was too full of Tsingdao to control himself and was not happy with the direction uncle was taking in getting him down to lockhart road…
