the simple life

Pirates of the Estate

Almost all the shops in my estate were closed during the Chinese New Year holidays.

The few that remained open, on the 3rd day of the new year were McDonald's, 7-Eleven, a discount store and the pirated software shop in the corner.

Remarkable.

The pirates has been around in their cozy corner for at least 6 months. It has been peaceful for them and I'm sure they have not been harassed by the strong arm of the law.

Yet.

But it is remarkable.

I am very proud of my estate, for not ratting out to the authorities the existence of this small entrepreneurial enterprise.

Long may it live.
