My local


I live near a 24h food court. So, I need never worry about running out of food. There's also a 24h supermarket round the corner. It's best to eat during normal hours though, what's there at midnight and beyond can be a little greasy and dried up; or stewed to death.

But this place is full of gangly old Chinese men laying about. You can see two of them playing Chinese chess in the top photo. They remind me of my grandfather - how they sit, they look, they smoke and their general demeanour.


You can see the inventive use of traffic cones as pot plant stands in the next photo.
