    Just as I'm about to post this, the Chinese national anthem came on (National Day here in Hong Kong). I wouldn't buy a knockoff Dahon with a silly name, especially if they cost the same as a Dahon!...

    I'm not going to say anything about the PRC government on here (and get the site banned for Chinese users, lol) but China is absolutely an amazing and magic country in so many ways. 我爱中国 :)

    In my case, here in Mumbai, it's the ISP or my neighbor's software that is blocking sites. I have proxy software on my computer already...I hope it works through the 'Great Wall' (so to speak). ;)
