Not sure about Kush. Hope he’s ok. Woodsey is banned from blonde now.

That’s a shame Woodsey has been banned.  I thought he was a good bloke
Hope gets a reprieve

Lovely photos Tom
Good to see you and Mrs Red out and about enjoying yourselves


Hi Craig. Great to hear from our Aisia correspondent.

Mrs Red & I have been on lockdown, (well shielding actually, I have a lung condition) for several months, so it was really great to get out and about again.

It looks like cases are on the rise again now though, so our freedom might be short lived.

Plenty to keep me busy at home though. It's hedge trimming time at the moment.

How are things in your corner of the globe?

Hi Tom
Everything is fine in China.  After the initial outbreak of Covid and the strict measures of lockdown that were put in place fairly quickly here, we now seem to be living a fairly normal way of life.  Everything is back open except the borders so a lot of foreigners ( expats ) who didn’t come back in time are now locked out and cannot get back at this time. 
The closed borders are frustrating as I like to visit other parts of Asia  every few months for a few days get away , I’m very fortunate as it’s quite inexpensive to do so. This is now obviously not possible.
I was also looking forward to coming back at Xmas to see family and friends but this looks highly unlikely as I won’t be able to get back.
Let’s hope 2021 is a better year for everyone 


Craig,

How is Micky Wernick these days? Not heard much about him recently.


Hi Tony
I don’t  know mate as I have not been in touch for years. I can’t believe  I have been out the Uk over 11 years now . Time flies and all that .
I was  actually wondering the same thing the other day.

Frankie Knight passed away recently which was very sad to learn of but he had been ill for a while

R.I.P Frankie a true gentleman and friend.  He used to arrange the WSOP Vegas trips for the regulars at junction 10.
How I truly miss those days .

Listened to many tales of the old days with him  and shared  some great nights out. 
True legend who would help anyone .
He will be missed. xx

I live in an apartment block which is a gated community. There has been strict regulations put in place since January 23rd.  These included scanning a QR code with personal details , address , passport number etc .
This was to help to see if you been out of China or even out of the City , you had to scan similar QR code’s to enter shopping malls , restaurants, bars etc .
 Non residents were not allowed in and you had to collect any type of deliveries outside the security gate. 
You temperature was also taken every time you entered the complex .

Food deliveries were allowed to be delivered to the door 2 weeks ago which was a good sign things may be getting better , and tonight after I returned home from work they are no longer txoi g temperature checks. 
This is almost 3 months down the line but it appears things are getting back to normal now .   There were very strict rules in place from the start which you had to follow but it seems to be worth the while .
I wish other countries would follow suit and stay home for such a short time which is worth it in the long run

The problem is the ambiguity in the rules of our ‘lockdown’. Everyone can keep going to work, everyone is allowed out to exercise, everyone can go to packed supermarkets, incoming flights from most of the other worst afflicted places, public transport still running. No checks of any kind in terms of the screening you mention. I’m pleased you seem to be through the worst of it out there, fingers crossed that things keep going well.

Love the notion that the Chinese authorities locked down to this degree on 23rd January on the back of 25 reported deaths at the time



It was probably around a week later the more stringent measures  were put into place.

Another step by China. From March 28th.  All foreigners banned from entering China. 
They still taking it very serious.  I’m glad I never left and  I class China as my home.

I got a round of applause for putting the bins out earlier, it’s not that hard is it?  
Not sure if you are replying to me or not . But WTF are you on about you plum

Sigh....not replying to or referring to you in anyway, ‘twas a joke mate, people here will will get it  Smiley
Sorry then mate , but I’ve lived through this for over 2 months and now seeing normality and enjoying life again through China’s restrictions.  
Then I read about someone more  worried about losing their flight  ,  than their life .    
Makes me annoyed with their selfishness

It’s probably for 3-4 weeks but even less if idiots in the UK would follow the rules.  I’m so glad I left that place

For you guys worrying about holidays , get a grip.
I have both parents in their 80’s and a sister in her 60’s at high risk .  
I am looking that I could potentially have my whole family wiped out by this virus . We should really try to pursued  friends , family  to stay  home . The. It is containable.  

I appreciate the economic loss of businesses around the world and China will experience their 1st recession for sure , but the sacrifice was saving millions of lives.  I will possibly experience the loss of my job but I will always state the measures China took were worth it

Here is a post I made on FB . Maybe the grammar is shite but a lot of people have shared and got the message. 

Please don’t get caught up in political BS but realise the seriousness of this situation and spread the word on your wall .
 Try and persuade people to stay home if possible in anyway you can as it’s the only way to contain it.  Say what you want about China but we have contained it and now enjoying a reasonable normal lifestyle

Hi everyone I know these are difficult times .

But can I tell you if you didn’t know , I have lived in China for the last 7 years and I want to share my experience

I was made were made aware this coronavirus on Late January. Immediately restrictions were put into place ,  as this terrible virus spread tighter restrictions were put into place.   

Let me tell you , these restrictions were tight but we all had to follow them as we knew it was the only way to control this outbreak.

My family and friends messaged and called regularly to see how I were but no one understood the  magnitude of this situation including me .
I won’t go into the economics of this problem because that’s still the unknown  but it’s damn scary

What I want to say is, China first experienced this horrific virus now classed as a pandemic and they put into place so many strict regulations which were followed by the people
 
Now we ( China ) have it under control and are possibly the safest place on the world to be at this time

I love China in what they did and as my home. They protected the masses and I truly pray the rest of the world follow their example to contain this nightmare

For all of you out there , please stay home for a few weeks and save lives , especially your loved ones

If you keep going out and ignoring the lockdown, then I’m sorry you deserve to be locked up in prison or worse.

Take care and God bless and it’s going to be alright eventually. 
Miss my family & friends from England

I should probably add , after all these tight restrictions for a while , we are all now enjoying our normal lives. Going out to bars and clubs .
It’s only a small sacrifice for a lifetime of fun  xx
