day 1198 – japan travels

image

memoir of my traveling days this spring, visiting family in hong kong and then japan. it was a very simple yet dangerous phenomenon that made me gain weight in the wrong way – basically eating out everyday and going temple hopping all day long. the nightlife, shopping, ramen, sushi and attractions were all great. the only thing i can’t get used to is the humidity and inaccessibility of fitness facilities. i enjoyed the exploration and look forward to my next travels wherever it may take me

day 1025 – waffles waffles

image

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 1022 – landed in hong kong

much of the day was spent trapped in a confined plane, but i finally made it out to see some light. it’s kind of hard to keep track since i lose a day due to crossing numerous time zones. luckily the seat next to mine was not occupied, which made the thirteen hour flight a tad better. during the plane ride, i jotted down many things in my notebook including some upcoming plans, goals, thoughts and reflections that i want to attack and achieve once i get from this trip. i also got a chance to watch the movie fantastic four

the weather is humid but fortunately it’s not too hot today. everything went smoothly as i took the double decker out of airport and my parents were there to meet me at the terminus station near my grandma’s place. it has been a week since i saw my parents; they were very glad to see me, and so was i. i went to bed before 11pm because plane rides are very taxing

today is one of those hot and humid spring days that makes me think spring just ended and summer is well on its way. the temperature peaked at 26 during mid day; i was already sweating as i was standing inside the gym about to begin my warm up. i am ready to get my tan started earlier than last year. i am looking forward to this summer; there’s so many exciting things waiting ahead this season
