By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk There were a couple of very weird years- not as weird as my first acid trip- but weird nevertheless. For example, there was an American kid at KGV whom we called “Fuzzy”. His real name was Bruce Barron. He was brash, he was cocky, he was supposedly extremely rich and was [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk My family arrived in Hong Kong in 1958 after over two weeks by ship where my father spent most of the time in our cabin with seasickness while I played shuffleboard with my mother and a group of Italian priests. It wasn’t exactly The Love Boat. What was awaiting us in [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk The first memories of my mother was Podhi. Podhi was the servant “designated” to me. She fed me, bathed me, took me to kindergarten, sheltered me from bullies, cleaned my backside, and being an only child, she was my one play friend. She played marbles with me, put up with my [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk It always seems like a good idea: Take a total break from the monotony and autonomy and lobotomy of it all.
