No, not this one. At least not yet.
Tonight I’m not ready to sleep yet but also not ready to do anything productive. So I’m going through the hundreds of RSS feeds in my Google Reader. Almost all the feeds are in folders (Food, Photography, HK Blogs, etc.). When someone hasn’t posted anything in at least 3 months, I assume it’s a dead blog and I move it into a folder called “Defunct.” I don’t delete it as long as the old posts are still accessible or in case the blog should “come back to life” at some point in the future.
It’s funny sometimes to see peoples’ final posts on their blog. A small number of them know it will be their last post and say goodbye one way or another. A far greater number of them don’t. I won’t bother posting links to these blogs since they’re inactive but the final posts are often interesting. Mostly they’re along the lines of, “Sorry, I know I haven’t been posting much, I’ll be doing more soon!” I’m always curious as to what happened to these people. They went away, they came back, they promised more … and then they’re gone again without a word.
I suppose you could file this under some bizarre form of nostalgia.

I know, I know I don’t write enough. Well here’s an excuse: social media is making me dumb and lazy. For those of you who want to see me try my hand at producing irrelevant sound-bites within 140 characters – find me here.
P.S. I’m not that interesting, so you have been warned.

On 31 August 1997, Princess Diana met with her untimely doom in a Parisian underpass. London ground to a halt, as the entire population saw fit to drown the entrance to Buckingham Palace in a sea of floral tributes. A nation wept, bereft of one of its most-loved characters. It’s only natural that my own departure from the ‘Kokosphere has raised as much gloom and despondency, if not more. I am not saying that I will be more keenly-missed than Princess Diana. That is for other people to say.

This year will be a year of changes. It means leaving my comfort zone and pursuing something more, something greater.
Wish me luck

I know it’s been a very long time indeed since I last posted on this blog, but just came across this wonderful video advertising the benefits of ‘King’s Cube’ in HK.
I’ve been keeping up with the developments in HK, and it’s pleasing to see that there’s growing movement against the government. The increasing resistance is for reasons exposed in this video, I’m sure.

A year. Goes very quickly if you’re not careful. Yes I’m still alive, no I haven’t been “away” but I have changed jobs, drinking habits and lost some friends along the way. So if you’re still interested this blog should become a bit more food oriented and less about the gutter…….we’ll see.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately but it all has to do with my job and most of all that I want to finish the work on my house.
Did get a new roof on my house and all the carpeting, isolating, panting etc. inside I do myself.
Hoping to get this finished this summer…
So don’t worry I’ll be back posting after that.

Sorry friends for not posting for about … 2 years. Much has happened that I need to tell you about, like [holy shit] I quit my job and got married!
So. What’s up with me getting married? That’s for another post, coming soon.

First of all, Merry Christmas to all those who actually read this on a regular basis. I hope you all have a great 2010.
I sadly however am going to be putting a hold on running this blog for the time being. Time sadly is the reason. The real occupation is getting busier, and I’d like to focus any excess time into playing/writing with my band.
I have enjoyed doing this however and would like to come back to it one day.
If in the mean time anyone wants to continue writing for konghongrock, and is willing to do it for nothing but passion and a place to chat shit, then let me know.
Till next time friend.

Getting caught having a wank at the age of 13 is a fucking embarrassing moment.
Getting caught at the age of 37 is a whole other story.
Well, that killed 30 minutes. What do I do with myself next? (Um, no, not taking any cues from the sentence above.)
