solo series [day seven]

i spoke too soon. another sub par sleeping night due to irritating mosquito bites. but that’s totally fine because mo was at the gym chatting with me between his sets. day seven without the gym and i’m feeling slightly depressed, i know it will only get worse in the upcoming days.

my grandma was very excited to have lunch with my parents and i; she seemed especially energetic today. she knows that this will be the last meal together until the next time we visit. it wasn’t a fancy meal, but it was an important one

seeing si hing again, this time we covered the causeway bay and tsim sha tsui territory. we walked through almost every adidas and nike store in the area, talking about shoes. he needed food before his shift, so we sat down discussing taekwondo as he ate. time went by so fast and i didn’t want to part, but we must say goodbye for now until we meet again. i refuse to say farewell

my last dinner in hong kong was no doubt spent at home with my other grandma. i consider this one of the best meal on this trip so far. it’s a plain homecooked meal with no fancy dishes; simply because i missed eating tofu and veggies

the number of mosquito keeps piling on – the count is at eleven. not only is it growing in number, it’s also growing in size and irritation. at last i couldn’t stand if anymore and went out to get some ointment. i hope this works wonders and gets me out of the itching misery

solo series [day three]

first thing is first, i have to be a good granddaughter and do my due diligence. that means i am having morning dimsum with my grandma on dad’s side, then having lunch dimsum with my grandma on mom’s side

after taking care of family business, i was free to do as i wished. before my meeting with a good friend, i took the opportunity to train out and explore on my own. i was prepared to get lost as i wandered the streets, but that’s totally fine because i’m more than capable of finding my way back

evening was spent hanging out with one of the four underconstruction crew. we met up to have happy hour drinks at knutsford, shopped in mall, and later went for noodles at tsim sha tsui. she took me around to a famous noodle shop that i’m sure mo would approve of as it’s specifically known for their spices

i was up at 4am and couldn’t fall asleep again, but that worked in my favour because i was able to have our first overseas video chat. it’s been a long day for me travelling across the city and back. i am hoping to shop more tomorrow morning before meeting up with my “si hing” for some miscellaneous activities to be determined
