A colleague and lover of anagrams has pointed out why Link, the Housing Authority's real estate investment fund, is having so much trouble hitting the market. 'It's bound to be a hot burning issue, explosive even, given its name,' she said. 'Think about it - it's actually 'kiln', a hot burning oven to make clay or ceramics.' Hmm, okay, whatever you say Luisa ... But my erudite friend may be right when she points out that the coming Monday is a highly inauspicious day for Link's 'conditional' listing. It's November 9 on the Chinese calendar, a date when the Sina.com almanac (pictured) advises against doing, among other things, opening a business, which most definitely includes getting listed on the stock market.
