Merry Christmas from Hong Kong

Submitted by patho on Thu, 26/12/2013 - 19:57

Christmas days in Hong Kong are jam-packed with productive meetings, delicious luncheons and copious dinners on North-side of Hong Kong Island in and around Central and Causeway Bay. Obviously this city never sleeps or even takes a holiday. The food itself ranges from dim-sum in the morning, Sichuan spicy dishes, Korean fondue and of course Cantonese stir-fried. Luckily a little time remained to enjoy some great scenery of this vibrant Asian metropolis.

Bobby Darin - Beyond The Sea

Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing

Somewhere beyond the sea
She's there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms I'd go sailing

It's far beyond a star
It's near beyond the moon
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
Happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailing

I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon

We'll meet I know we'll meet
Beyond the shore

If Qingdao was characterised by a freezing fog, then “China’s Hawaii” will offer something a little more welcoming when the race makes its second visit to the country.

Michel Sardou - Les Lacs du Connemara

Terre brûlée au vent
Des landes de pierre
Autour des lacs
C'est pour les vivants
Un peu d'enfer
Le Connemara

Des nuages noirs
Qui viennent du nord
Colorent la terre
Les lacs, les rivières
C'est le décor
Du Connemara

Au printemps suivant
Le ciel Irlandais
Etait en paix
Maureen a plongé
Nue dans un lac
Du Connemara

Sean Kelly s'est dit
Je suis catholique
Maureen aussi
L'église en granit
De Limerick
Maureen a dit oui

De Tipperary
Et de Galway
Ils sont arrivés
Dans le comté
Du Connemara
