Broken Dreams by Tom Bower

The big yellow blog

It's tempting fate to write this, I know, but has George* thrown in the towel?  The site doesn't seem to have been updated for several weeks.

The funny thing is that this seems to coincide with the absence of the comments from the army of people who find Ordinary Gweilo very boring.  I wonder if by any chance they are related?


* and his large team of helpers, obviously.  I wouldn't want to suggest that it was all his own work

My reader suggested he was doing the Bar exams; perhaps the army of helpers is also doing the exams. Perhaps they are doing one paper each.


Interesting to note how little he's been missed.


This would be the same George Adams who once described himself thus:

Occupations: lecturer, writer, satirist
Interests: writing (six published books and in two US anthologies), journalism (weekly HK Standard column), swimming, running, cinema, music, the Internet
Dislikes: cats, lawyers, "1997"


His mate HKPhoey seems to have gone strangely quiet too. Are they by any chance related? I think we deserve to be told.
