day 2130 – ghent city

made another day trip out of today, this time to the city of ghent. this city, similar to antwerp, also has a lot of canals and historical buildings. the rows of houses along the canal are quite photogenic. i enjoyed the scenic walk along the canal, but my feet and legs are really worn out after so many days of constant walking. we got back in town before dinner time and finished the last of belgium shopping. at this point i’m really starting to feel homesick, missing so much of what i have in vancouver

day 819 – testing one two three

my parents came back from hong kong having brought back many clothes, gadgets, snacks and other items. underwear is a big thing because my mom truly believes hong kong underwears are the way to go. among the many things, they showed me a newer version of selfie stick and asked me to test it out, and so i did. can’t wait to use my selfie stick on my next vacation, hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. the hardest part is not deciding where to go, but finding the time to go and whom to go with

day 817 – return of parents

that was a quick two weeks, my parents are back in town after their annual hong kong visit. sounds like they had a good relaxing trip and that all relatives are doing well. hearing stories of the happenings and that my grandparents still act the way they do – like a five year olds. it’s great that they’re back to take care of my day to day needs again, but i am losing the unlimited freedom and going back to normal routines. man, it’s a slow day and i am still feeling the effects of yesterday night’s epicness

reaching out to my beloved underconstruction team and sending off souvenirs from my vegas trip. don’t recall when was the last time i did the old school thing to send off letters with snail mail. i had difficulty finding an envelope, a place to buy stamps and even then when i had all the pieces, i didn’t know where to place it on the envelope
