The REAL Deal... Madrid and HK...

After getting Kaka', it seems like Real Madrid is going after more footballing superstars. David Villa, Xabi Alonso (NOOOOOO!), C.Ronaldo, Ribery among others. The money is moving around like monopoly paper and for the rest of us earthly creatures they are living in another world...

But superstars don't make a team~ it will take a year or two, with a top man at the helm. Fabio Capello is doing a good job with all those rich English players now, driving the national team to possibly a perfect qualifying campaign. Hard to see that coming 2 years ago...

But the real deal which not many of us know (at least I didn't until last night) is the fact that while the New Territories was scheduled for return to China hands in 1997 according to the Treaty of Nanking, Kowloon and H.K. Island were ceded to UK in perpetuity.

I think they just had enough of noisy yum cha restaurants... they were probably so pissed off by the noise level that they changed their laws to ensure that HK Chinese citizens don't get UK citizenship. *Ouch*

Oh well... back to miserable work... and anyone can tell me what's this property bubble in Singapore all about???
