Update: Since none of Amy's friends or family participated in the caption contest, she was the sole judge for the contest.  So all complaints should be directed towards her.  She did say it was awfully difficult to pick a winner, so we want to congratulate everyone.  But this isn't a middle school athletic event, so there are in fact winners.  Please keep in mind that if you didn't win, there will be more contests and based on the turn out, I have a feeling everyone will earn themselves a very valuable souvenir (where shipping might cost more than the actual item).  So without further ado, your winners are:

Picture 1: "Which one's the amazing yen?"
"The little Chinese guy"
- TM (Amy is a sucker for the Ocean's X movies)

Picture 2: You farted in your suit too?
Yeah, I think I am going to vomit.
- Sellnows (Who doesn't love a good fart joke)

Picture 3: The line to score the latest KOK tee.
- The Smiths (Amy does love Kilroys On Kirkwood)


We landed in Hong Kong exactly a month ago which means we only have two more months before we are back in the states.  As a result we are creating a post to summarize our time away thus far.  To start things off, below are three pictures.  In order to drum up more action in the comments section, we are conducting a caption contest for each of the pictures.  Each participant is allowed one entry for each of the pictures (specify which number picture each caption is for).  Amy and I will decide winners and those lucky individuals will receive a souvenir prize when we get back in June.  Contest ends on April 16th.  Below the caption contest is our DAscors (Dave and Amy Oscars) Awards for different categories for the first third of the trip.  Finally don't forgot to check out the trip statistics page to see all of our travel numbers thus far and we are always looking for more items on the scavenger hunt list.  Enjoy.
