day 1023 – knutsford happy hour

image

after a morning and afternoon of family time visiting both grandmas on opposite side of the city, i was off on my own schedule. representing fifty percent of the underconstruction crew in knutsford – a version of lan kwai fong. we had happy hour drinks and potato wedges. i kept my promise and stayed away from alcoholic drinks and ordered a mango passion fruit mocktail instead. our post shopping meal was at a noodles shop called tam jai sam jor. i really can’t afford to get any fatter on this asia trip

after a thirteen hour flight, i have safely landed at hong kong airport. during the long flight, i napped, ate, wrote and watched movies; i only got up twice to use the washroom. my back and legs are extremely stiff and i seriously couldn’t help but to miss the gym already

my parents flew in earlier last week. however, i was a surprise visitor; no one knew i was going to make an appearance. when i rang my grandma’s doorbell, she was so stunned she was at a loss of words. she reminds me i haven’t been back to visit since 2013? i am always amazed at her memory; hard to imagine a ninety year old has a better memory than me. thankfully it’s not as hot as i expected it to be for this time of the year, but i heard it was pretty hot and humid a few days ago

of course gym is not the only thing i miss back in vancouver. i already miss mo dearly. i always glance at my watch wondering how he’s doing and what he is up to. i hope he’s working hard back home and catching up with people he hasn’t seen for a while

although i slept on the plane, going through so many flights and the troubles of getting on and off them has been taxing. i really wanted to wait until mo was awake before i head to bed but my head and eyes were hurting. it was time to call it a day

reported massive flooding everywhere in hong kong streets, malls and mtr stations, and that’s probably one of the rare times when you will find an unpopulated sector in hong kong. friend sent me this photo and i thought it was a waterfall at first glance, almost don’t remember how hong kong pouring is like but this gives me recollection. they are clearly not as prepared as we are for down pours

張學友 – 只想一生跟你走

suddenly really feel like listening to this song. a good song never gets old, even when the youngest generation nowadays never heard of the singer. brings back so much memories of days in hong kong that i will always take with me. all those times listening to this song and jamming along in the back seat of our sierra
