finally gave back my staff id card, medical cards and did some paper work with hr staff. no more queuing for bus and mini bus (damned this summer so many using the public transport made me late for a few times) on workdays to there anymore.

overall quality: cathay pacific (cx) (2000) >= sinapore airlines (sq) (2005) > qantas (qf) (2000). there's even a pee smell from qf's 747-200.
plane: cx > sq > qf. cx and qf both used 747s for the flight but sq only used 777-200. but qf's 747-200 sucks (must better than china airlines). the flight to singapore nearly made the plane full in capacity (because of the holiday) but very few when we came back.
seat: cx >= sq > qf. cx has lcd display on economic class for every seat in 2000 but not in qf. qf's seat didn't have enough space for me to put on feet without hitting the seat in front.
food: basically no big difference on the economic class level. but i wanna thank you the catering sevice here this time (should be this one) because it provides Häagen-Dazs ice cream when we went to singapore.
servants: no big difference. but the uniform of the sq is not favourite for ladies. too big neck opening...
pilots: ca = sq > qf. the landing of qf is not good, just like hitting rally car hitting on the ground

it looks like a little key chain which will generate a 6-digit code everytime when you log in the system. but how the system works? if easy to know, then easy to crack. will we be safe to use? and it's easy to get lost because of the design. we need to pay $100 to get another one back except battery going out.

government official and new chief executive said they don't want rthk to waste taxes to compete the private radios stations. but those programmes they mentioned are representive and have good reputuations. and even i love some programmes even other are going downwards. as a hong konger, i don't like rthk to become what officials like.
on the public holiday of handover, finally finished watching dido's oncert on dvd (did something british on former british soil). my review (based on my old crt tv system - only dolby stereo 2.0 used):
- simple (only play; songs selection; & audio options in menu)
- plain (one clothes on 3 days concert? - even the musicians)
- at beginning, seems she didn't have enough preparation so i don't like the way she performed here with me. but afterwards i found she may wanna show there's a difference between album and live. so quite different tone used in different songs. some lower, some higher. and a lot more musicial equipments used
- every concert needs an encore section? seems every artists like their fans to call them back from the stage at the near end of the concert.
- i love the layout of the case anyway but it's not convenient to take the discs out.
anyway i like the set and any chance to come to asia (except japan) to perform in concerts?
