In Other News – 18 October 2016

When I was a young lad, I loved Sundays. Not because I was keen for the weekend to be over or anything oddly misguided like that. Instead, Sundays were when we’d head out to Chinatown. The old one in Johannesburg’s Commissioner Street, before a new wave of Chinese immigrants established Cyrildene as their culinary base.

I loved it, mostly because we’d always pick up a dozen (or two!) freshly steamed pork buns, or char Siu Bao. Soft, steamed bread that ensconces a filling of chopped barbecued pork, soy sauce and oyster sauce. Sweet, salty, delicious – and one of my fondest memories. A man without a pork bun in his hand can never be a whole man. Cheers, United Front Games.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
