My Ravings n Ramblings

My earlier venture into blogging was to capture the escapades of my kids. Very soon, I did realise that there was a lot more of stuff that demanded to be "penned down". Not wanting to turn the kids' blog into an "everything under the big blue sky" blog, I decided to start another one - and this is it !! "Anything and everything under the big blue sky" that catches my attention and says "pen me down" will be found here.

Nike and a lot more

There's this thing in HK - there's a trend about something and you find anyone and everyone following it. This, of course, is quite a natural thing in most parts of the world. What comes next is not ....

Then come the variations to the original themes ......... whether they make sense or not does not really matter ............

In the case of clothes, I've found a great many HK ites wearing Tshirts with unspeakable words on them ......... and many a times, the fact is that they don't realise what it is they are wearing.

There was this NIKE trend at one time - when everyone and anyone was wearing Tshirts with the NIKE symbol and slogan on it "Just Do It".

Then came the variations which were infinitely more interesting ..........

It began with ladies walking around in Tshirts saying "Just Do Me" ..........

Better still, one day I saw a lady walking towards the MTR station with a bright red Tshirt with the picture of a large yellow banana on it and the slogan on her Tshirt read

"Just Do Yourselves"
