Australia Day In Hk
We spent Australia Day at work unlike you lucky buggers down under. (I already sound more Aussie here than I do at home, ya flaming dingos)
After work, we went to Australia Day celebrations at the Happy Valley race course organised by the Australian Association of Hong Kong. We watched the horses fly by on a floodlit green field surrounded by high rise apartment buildings whilst chugging alcohol and eating pavlova.
Hong Kong people really do like a flutter. The races are on every Wednesday night and seem to be well attended. Happy Valley racecourse also has sport fields in the centre of the race track - no space is wasted and you can also run around its perimeter.
Not a bad night, sheila, not bad at all.
