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 572 – monday debut

finally making my monday team season debut even though i am outright sore. my neck and back area as stiff as a board, a resultant of all that breakfalling from yesterday’s test. this condition made especially difficult to drive when i cannot shoulder check and it seizes up every time i step on the gas or brake pedal.┬áin desperate need of a massage and hot tub stint since i cannot apply bengay

day 236 – crime scene

walmart parking lot was filled with caution tape, twenty police cars, ambulances, fire trucks and eight smashed cars. some bystanders and walmart employees claimed one crazy driver intentionally smashed into eight different cars, thought these scenes only happen in movies. good thing i arrived after this all happened
