Getting use to things

Well, adjusting back to expensive ol’ Ireland again! I am only glad of the nice bearable weather, I won’t complain too often about it, the sun’s nice and warm, and I don’t miss sweating profusely!
But food here is sooo dear! Even my work subsidised lunch total equals a lunch special for 4 persons at Maxim’s (changes everyday)! And man.. beer is so cheap in Park’n Shop (their version of tesco supermaket, but cheaper and more choice). And I still have 2 bottles of Erdinger chilling in the fridge in HK! :-)
Travel is still crappy here, I waited over 20mins for a DART the other day! Give me 2-3 minutes for a train anyday! And the smart cards, they were so handy! Sigh… whine, whine, whine… Well, at least I have lots of things to look forward to when I go back to HK (unless Treetypie has anything else to say!) :-P
