Hi all its my birthday today so I'm looking forward to seeing you at the secret party that Erica has arranged in Shanghai. If you want any details of the location write to E and she will let you know. Anyway I hope that today everyone will be donning their red beards, long wigs and fat suits in tribute.

Lets get the rice wine out to celebrate.

Update of the Birthday....

Rorie and I got up at 05:45 to go and try and find some mad Tai Chi rumoured to be going down in the neighbourhood. Bear in mind I haven't seen the Irish before 10am unless forced to rise for a bus or train.

We wandered round the park for a while and sat watching various different groups. It was all very interesting. I have never seen some meditation with weapons before but I suppose thats the beauty of getting up early. After two and a half hours of watching trying to find an opportunity to join in we headed back for some Shanghai steamed buns then another hour in bed.

Still waiting for the flood of cards and presents from you all but I guess I will get those at the surprise party that we are thinking of having in the 'Bulldog' pub. You know the saying "when in Rome find an English or Irish pub and humiliate your national reputation.

Update of the party.....

After opening my only present (A bathroom accessory kit containing a toothbrush, shower cap, comb and soap) from Rorie and Emer it was time to go to the venue to see how many people were attending, much to my suprise there was only four of us. We spent the night drinking and erm, drinking. Although it was buy one get one free we still managed to get through 80 pounds worth of drink between us and I feel slightly rough this morning writing this.

Of note I have lost my touch only managing to get two free bowls of peanuts despite showing my passport at the hostel and bar asking for freebies. A huge letdown.

We also learn't a lot about Irish history as through the drunken haze we got onto serious subjects.

Recent photos appear to have shown I was either missing teeth or they were black however this was just the fact the moustache had grown to such a length it obscured the view of my teeth. Anyway enough was enough after storing about a quarter of a pint in the tache then upon speaking firing foam everywhere it was time for a haircut, we got some scissors from behind the bar and trimmed the tache.

Not much else to report really.
