Crispy Whitebait with peanuts

Is triggered by Junior Deputy Accountant, who seemed to enjoy my Bernanke photo - awesome.

I've just returned from a three week adventure in Hong Kong, including trips to mainland China and Macau, which explains why I've been so quiet lately.

As usual, I took tons of photos which tell the stories better than I could in most cases - I mean, how else can you explain Crispy Whitebait to someone?

 

Perhaps I should've actually bought it but I didn't really feel like eating chips that day.

I did write a bit of a micro-journal documenting my observations since I didn't feel like dragging my laptop along with me when I crossed the border.

China's ridiculously fast transformation into some sort of capitalist-ish economy under a one-party state is obvious to anyone who sees the construction of high speed rail lines and the rapid development of formerly sleepy towns into bustling cities - I'll share more of that soon. Looking at this through the eyes of a CA which means I'll have some vaguely "on-topic" observations.

Until then, in case you're wondering, Whitebait is a fish, not a distraction to a bombing run.

I must admit I tried stranger things than those snacks. I think "sales tactics" should be one of the next topics.
