solo series [day four]

the weather took a hit today. hong kong rain is nothing like vancouver’s; when it rains, it really pours. started the day in a mall called apm, that’s where i did some shopping and had lunch with my parents. the rain lightened in the afternoon so we decided to go to shum shui po to buy stuff from street vendors. even with the muggy weather, the streets of kowloon were jam packed with people

i am happy to meet up with my si hing who’s been ever so influential. we hung out and chatted as if we were back in the old vancouver days that i dearly miss. he took me around to local favourites and hidden gems. there i bought a lot of things and almost bought a new phone too

went to my cousin’s house for a homecooked dinner. this is really the first time i encountered my niece since the last time i saw her she was only four. she’s unbelievably smart and witty, but sometimes that makes her a little arrogant. luckily she adored me and listened to everything i said. she said i was the coolest person she met and even invited me to sleepover with her

it was a productive day despite the weather affecting some of our initial plans. i am spending a ton of money eating a ton of food here on vacation. i’ll need to work harder at earning it back and working it off when i return
