Re: Christmas love it or loath it

It really is not about spending lots of money on gifts for whoever. I think that Christmas is a time to spend with family by eating a meal together, by being in the same room on the same part of the world (when possible or SKYPEing / Face-timing). And for those who say that Jesus is the reason for t...

Re: Trump slurs words in speech

it's clear there's something wrong. Yes, there is. He's a truly rotten human being. Although not quite as rotten as his followers. You are sure of this? Might you be a little overstating things? How about some clear and concise examples to illustrate your point? All of his followers are rotten? Can...

Re: Best and worst transfer airport by continent

In Asia
Best: HKG and SIN
Getting to be okay: TPE

Worst: Incheon International Airport (ICN) Many of the signs in the airport have no English. Just to buy a Dunkin Donut at ICN, one needs to be able to read Korean?
WOW!!!

Interesting : RMQ, CNX, CMI

In the meantime think of the signage that will read “if you like your airport you can keep your airport.”

Re: Original DCA Main Terminal

DCA is a nice place. My uncle would fly (3 holer- 727) and park at the old terminal then the "new" TWA terminal and we would go pick him up and of course "tour" the cockpit, get freebie things like playing cards, wings, etc. Gravelly Point was our family frequent Sunday afternoon...

Re: Honda City in North America?

After owning a Honda City for about 10yrs, I am not impressed with the new Honda City. Here in this part of Asia, it looks like a rebadged Civic and about the same size. I liked the 01 City body style but Honda put the worse motor/tranny in it. It leaked oil all the time!! I see a few around still b...

Re: Carrie Lam's Mandarin

It would seem from a quick look back at history, until China becomes a missionary sending country, Mandarin most likely will not be a world business language. Simplified and traditional Chinese about the same in difficulty to read and write. IE. If you learned simplified that is what you will use. T...

Re: Carrie Lam's Mandarin

Iloveboeing , do not go to Taiwan. You will not be able to handle the Tribal / Taiwanese/ Hakka/ Mandarin mix. GRIN Carrie Lam is a Cantonese speaker. Cantonese pronunciation always affects ones Mandarin pronunciation. Romanization (IE. Yale) is good for learning Cantonese but not Mandarin. English...

Re: WHAT ARE THE WORST THINGS ABOUT FLYING?

Jet lag that hangs on for days and days. Does not matter east bound or west bound.

Folks who bring huge suitcases and put in overhead bins.

Re: 9 hours in HongKong ?

If you go to the peak, skip the tram and take the Number 1 Minibus to the peak, sit on the driver side in the back for the best pictures. The view is great. You will see both the Kowloon side and the ocean side of the island. The #15 regular bus is also good, now they use a new bus, but still okay r...

Re: So.....What If Trump Refused To Concede?

The other side of the coin, If Tump wins, will HRC concede or contest the results? Do you think that Obama will help HRC? If he does help her, I wonder what he will do? Mmmm Just thinking!
