As we all know:
Mad dogs and Englishmen
Go out in the midday sun
Jardine's have a tradition of firing the Noon Day gun that is fun to see.

Owned by multinational company Jardine Matheson, the Noon Day Gun, made famous in the Noel Coward song Mad Dogs and Englishmen, is fired off by a Jardine employee at noon every day.


The gun is located on the waterfront in Causeway Bay, where Jardine used to have warehouses, known in these parts as godowns

Funnily enough I’m in Wanchai right this very moment on a solo trip and walked past the gun a couple of hours ago

I got drenched in the afternoon storm when I went to the zoological gardens too yesterday and had to walk back to Central station looking like a drowned rat

It’s not raining today thankfully so I am going out to buy some new shoes after my other ones were wrecked in the rain
