day 1619 – workshop sampling

taking a field trip next to door to icon workshop to inspect and watch the building of headboards. it’s been a really busy first week back at work. the pace of the first week has been immensely different than last year. behind those shades i’ve been quietly taking care of business getting plenty of work done managing the triage of work. for me, this could be the year filled with opportunities to step up and prove myself capable for the lead role

day 1543 – muggy days


a whole week of wet and muggy weather further dampens my already bad mood at the moment. day fourteen of being in a splint and i can’t help but feel very depressed that i can’t do seemingly basic things. others just see me as being grumpy; it’s hard for anyone to understand what it means to me to be on the sideline missing out what i love doing. i’m doing everything to the best of my abilities, and that makes people forget how much pain and inconvenience i’m in. the countdown continues, but the thought of taking the risk is always on my mind

day 1170 – tired brain

some thoughts are really getting to me lately. it bugs me, but speaking my heart is hard. maybe i am just faulty or maybe i just need to suck it up and accept not being accepted. i try to not let these thoughts get in my head, but it’s only human. the storm is coming and i’m not looking forward to going outside; perhaps once this rainstorm is over, it’ll be over for me too

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

day 762 – self destructive

image

monday blues definitely hit me really hard. woke up with a headache and feeling crappy overall, not wanting to get out of bed, unable to be productive and not knowing what to do with myself. the gloomy wetness outside only makes matter worse and all i want to do is sit around and do nothing. do nothing it was, and i got a starbucks that i don’t deserve one bit. but later in the afternoon, i willed myself to get some stuff done instead of being a completely useless human being

day 753 – rainy forecast

image

hope the weather forecast is not correct but if it is, the end of august could be bringing us some rain. i know we’ve had a drought this summer and i know we need to have water in order to survive, but i am still not thrilled to see the rain come back. not finished with tennis, hiking, water sports or numerous outdoor activities which all requires the sun to cooperate

day 608 – gloomy weather

on the weather network app monitoring the weather for the next couple days. the forecast looking wet which will only ruin my long weekend plans because i finally have a rare weekend off. hoping by checking more often, it will increase the chances of forecast suddenly changing for the better and give me some sunshine. so far it doesn’t seem like it’s working in my favour but i can only remain hopeful
