Message from the GM: This must be the most devastating typhoon to have hit Hong Kong in quite a while! So devastating that the hare had to change to change the start and several leaves fell on the floor causing a mild inconvenience to some trees. But speaking of mild inconveniences, please do follow the rules – they’re there for a reason.

WEBSHITE’S COMMENT: Legend has it that a bride (Carried Lam) was being carried in a sedan chair by four porters on her way to meet her groom in stormy weather.

The Official Version: As they passed the pool, one of the porters slipped and the bride fell into the pool and drowned. Therefore, the pool was named Bride’s Pool in memory of the bride.

The Truth: The bride was an ugly, miserable shrew foisted on the cute young groom by a despotic northern step-mother Cixi. The groom bribed the eunuch porters to do her in so he could elope back to the future with his sexy sweetheart from the Ho clan, his true catch of the day.
