Rainy day = Funny game

It is soon the end of the dry season in Hong Kong. When you say rain, you also think raincoats, rain shoes and umbrellas…

The rain season is a real challenge on its own in this city; and it is not because of the potential heavy rainstorm or the floods in some part of the city! Each single person walking in the street is holding an umbrella and being careful not to walk/jump in the next rain pond. Until now, no big difference with a rainy day in France or anywhere else in the world, I agree!


But rain in HK also means war! Everyone is holding their own weapon – Their Umbrella.


They use it as if they were the only on in the streets, meaning without caring of others, keeping their heads down to be sure they don’t see you, regularly emptying the rain on you when they do cross you… the best part being stabbed from everywhere and mostly straight in the eyes!

The point is of course not to check if you are stabbing someone else so just keep walking with this ridiculous angel face to show others that you can’t do anything about it if your umbrella today is a bit aggressive!


I guess I have exactly the wrong size for this game, I am only average in France but it means exactly the perfect size to get an umbrella attack straight in my face in HK! I can’t wait for the rainy season to come guys, I know the rules now and I will show no mercy!!!!!!!
