And the Golden Frog goes to…


For being so logical (“lots of Asian people in front of a Portuguese looking monument” therefore guessing Macao) and for being laconic but straight forward and right (“Macao“), the winners of this week’s Golden Frog are:
Nyasha and Vitor! (Applause)! Ok, that was easy for them, they’re both Portuguese… but still. It was indeed Macao. This tiny former Portuguese colony that was given back to China in December 1999 and which I had the chance to visit 3 years ago. If you ever travel to Hong Kong, do take a day to visit Macao, it’s just an hour away by super-speed boat and definitely worth it. A strange mix between Southern Europe and China where street signs are in both Portuguese and Chinese, where streets smell of bacalhau and locals speak Chinese with a Portuguese accent and vice-versa. (well I just heard, I couldn’t tell). Totally weird and fab!
The lucky winners have won a fabulous Golden Frog they will receive if they ever come to Paris. In the meantime they will receive their weight own worth of frozen frogs’ legs while the unlucky others get a new chance to get a fantastic prize next week!The answer to the next question: What the hell was I wearing?, nobody guessed it right. The right answer was “Honey, light-blue and corny hat, please send in the Fashion Patrol now!“.

Oh Look! It’s Macao!

And the Golden Frog Award!

  1. aw, another silly hat! weee! hehe.
    Kidding of course love 🙂

  2. my weight in frog legs – now that is a LOT of frog!!! grilled, roasted, cooked, fried? are you going to UPS it, or how do i get hold of those yummy legs? 😀

  3. btw, can’t stand the smell of dried bacalhau… can’t imagine streets smelling like that. had not realised Macao was in such bad shape… thanks for sharing the pix.

  4. yeah micke, my dad loves frog’s legs! he’s asked about them already!

    in fact when he was a kid he used to rip the legs off still living frogs, chuck the rest of the critter away and take them home for my grandma to fry.

    send ’em over!

    as for the golden frog award my only comment is: LMFAO!

    i thought you were brushing up on your portuguese 😛 you should be able to tell when they speak with a chinese accent.

    i had this weird co-worker who lived in macao for like 15 years and his accent was so thick we barely understood him… not to mention his fashion sense (which was null, i think he was stuck in the bad parts of the late 70’s early 80’s)

  5. Xmichra: It doesn’t matter how silly the hat is as long as I can hide my hair, or lack thereof…

    Nyasha: the Forgs’ legs should be delivered through UPS soon, they will have melted by the time they reach you and since it’s not healthy tore-freeze, you and better-hal have no choice but throw a gigantic French party. Well, depending on how much you weigh of course…

    WTF; Honey, you get to participate next week. By the way, stop complaining, you didn’t even participate this week!

    Vitor: I like your dad already, one cool dude. But that’s not exactly how we eat our frogs here. We’re not that tough.
    Regarding fashion taste of the Macanese, look at the pic in the post below and see what a bad influence Macao seems to have on people!

  6. still no frog legs 🙂 anxiously waiting! HAHA

  7. […] Are you any good at deciphering hidden messages? This one might be a bit hard to crack, as i myself have a hard time understanding how this monologue came together, but it was me then. I wrote this poem monologue more than 10 years ago. If you can give me an idea of what i was referring to, alluding to, leave a comment in the box. The one explanation that comes closest to the hidden message nonsense of this monologue will be rewarded with a customised thong. No, sorry, can’t do that. But i promise something in the post. Now unlike some people that promise and then do not deliver, i guarantee you will get something in your post box – eventually. (by the way, to you out there, i am still waiting for my gold ) […]
