day 2260 – girls catchup

long overdue catchup for the girls. even though we’re all in different companies now, we’re still able to maintain connection. i think not being in the same departments made it more fun when sharing the information we know. sometimes when i hear what they say about their new job, it makes me wonder why i’m still at this company. i don’t necessary care for the spotlight, but it’s having my production goes unnoticed and often taken for granted

solo series [day five]

another day of sub par sleeping, i am beginning to believe it’s not a result of jetlag. perhaps I just miss my own comfy bed. waking up at 4am has been the trend this whole trip

walking the streets of mongkok and yau ma tei on saturday mid day is not the brightest idea, but that’s exactly what we decided upon. as if the mtr and city streets were not busy enough on weekdays, weekends can be described as scary busy. a hamber friend took me to a nice waffle restaurant for lunch. of course, we ordered a savoury waffle plus a salad to share. we also grabbed bubble waffle; one of the items on my must-do list before i leave hong kong crossed off. we talked a lot and caught up on what’s been going on related to school, work, family, boys and life in general

my left knee is hurting throughout the day. i’m a little concerned as i’ll be needing my legs for tomorrow’s hike. this will be my main source of exercise on this trip as i have given up on acquiring trial gym passes

day 1025 – waffles waffles

a fellow hamberite showed me hong kong life through waffles. we were very ambitious when we decided to hit up mongkok area on a saturday afternoon. we shared a savoury waffle for lunch and then later shared a bubble waffle for afternoon snack. so much eating and no exercise isn’t making my body very happy. to be fair, there’s a lot of walking around involved, but it’s just not the same

day 83 – bubble waffle

huge lineup at this aberdeen foodcourt kiosk, waited in line for so long to get my one order of bubble waffle because person in front of me had five orders of the same thing. god knows why she needed so many orders and hope she isn’t finishing that alone. but i¬†was in dire need to have my craving fixed, so if you ask me, it was certainly worth the wait
