Got a Stack of CX Asia Miles? Spend Them Now!

As the business pages have been reporting, Cathay Pacific has been hemorrhaging cash at least for the last 12 – 18 months. It is therefore little surprise that its Asia Miles mileage programme is about to be revamped. From June 22, the entire system of earning and spending miles will be changed. The...

Re: China Trip 3: Harbin Ice & Snow Sculpture Festival and Beijing (reposted with pics)

I am fortunate in that I have an APEC Business Travel Card which gives me visa free entry for another 4 years. Although I have never had to apply for a China visa here in Bangkok, I have assisted others and always found the visa department staff very helpful. Hopefully it will be easier here than in...

Re: N Korea

Give Kim's regime a degree of intelligence for the recent statement by Choe Son Hui, a vice-minister specialising in the US-NK relationship in the North Korean Foreign Ministry. Ms. Choe referred back to the patently infamatory comments by Bolton and Pence about Libya being the model for North Korea...

Ian McKellan: Half Hollywood is Gay

Since coming out as gay 30 years ago, the celebrated actor Sir Ian McKellan has never hesitated to promote the gay agenda and to help gay causes. There's a short article in today's Guardian newspaper about a recent interview he gave to Time Out. It centres on Hollywood's failure to portray minoritie...

Is Pelosi a Winnable Leader for the Democrats?

I have never paid much attention to Nancy Pelosi as Leader of the Democrats in Congress. This morning there was a Town Hall on CNN when she addressed questions from the audience for an hour. This woman has almost zero charisma and exhibited even less passion. Her manner of speech was even more halti...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

So in addition to feeling good about being nominated by a group of idiotic Republicans for the Nobel Peace Prize, Trump has had issued an historic coin to commemorate his meeting with Kim in Singapore. Two surprising points. Trump's head is smaller than Kim's! Will the designer who made that mistake...

Re: Eggs and Cholesterol? Forget it!

And of course it works in the opposite direction. Remember the Marlboro man? My father was a doctor and smoked about 60 heavy tar cigarettes a day - almost the only kind you could get then. He had a theory that cancer was caused not by tobacco but by lighter fuel. So he always lit his cigarettes wit...

Re: Tokyo Hotels Shinjuku

It's a general rule in Japan that floor area plays the major factor in the cost of a room. So the cheaper the room, the smaller the area. Those with very small areas also tend to have little if any storage space apart from a hangar or two. So if you have a large suitcase, it will be impossible to ha...
