The owners of popular eatery Monsoon Poon have no plans to change the restaurant’s name, widely interpreted as a reference to female genitalia.
Monsoon Poon’s owners Nicola Richards and Mike Egan (pictured), say there was never any intention for the restaurant’s name to be taken as a derogatory or racist term.
Richards said “at no point” had that been the intention, and it was not how the word was interpreted by the business owners.
“You will find that Poon is a very common Chinese and Korean surname, and we simply thought it worked well with the word ‘monsoon’,” she said.
What do you think?
They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.
After this incident I can wholeheartedly recommend safety helmets as one of the best investments you can ever make.
