Brave, Porn, Rooftop, One Street Sells All, Repulse, Giant Snail, and Cover

After work on Saturday, we went to go watch Brave, the new Pixar movie (new here….). It wasn’t so great but it’ll pass for entertainment value. Then, we went to go eat some Thai food – I love Thai food. The only thing I don’t like about Thai food is probably Tong Yum Goong soup? Not that I don’t like it, it’s just not so great.

Also at the Thai place was a lovely worker named Porn. What an awesome name – here’s the punch card.

This guy is ready for something, btw

After all that, we went back to our place and had a small chill session on our rooftop. It wasn’t hot, wasn’t cold it was great.

Pretty uneventful Saturday but I definitely needed it after so many days of craziness.

Yesterday, I went with Vince and Waylen to the airport – they’re going to Vietnam and meeting up at Jay’s resort. They’re gonna rub it in my face that I can’t go.

After that, I met up with my Kau Fu at Sum Sui Po to buy some goods. That place is an addiction because the longer I stay there, the more I buy. I bought a keychain and tripod which I totally do not need, but wanted just because. We met up with my Cousin Ki and we went back to Golden Computer shop to buy them a wireless router.

It’s crazy how stores here can sell one thing, and only one thing for the whole street. I’m talking people selling the same runners at 10+ different stores all on the same street. The same thing with cameras, the same with computer parts, the same thing with… ANYTHING. I don’t get how they possibly make money… yet here they are in crazy high rent prices and churning out a profit. Incredible. Also, that’s one happy Monk. Wonder what she’s got in her bag?

On the way there, we passed by my dad’s old shop where he used to make beautiful frames and do glasswork. Good to go back to some of my roots. You know what else? I live in the same area where my mom and her family grew up and I work where they used to live too. #smallworld #coincidence

My Kau Mo made me dinner (soup, seafood assortment, chicken, bbq pork, and veggies) and soup. It was great and tasted awesome (still no comparison to my mom). Before dinner, Kau Fu, Ki and I were looking at a whole bunch of old photos. Here’s a pic of my stunning grandparents which I am seeing for the first time, and a picture of my pedo older brother when he was a kid. That little girl? Yeah he’s pedo…. nah just kidding – that’s Ki when she was super young. (do I look like my grandpa?)

After that, I met up with Joyce and we headed for Repulse Bay. We were going there cause we wanted to see the meteor shower but problem was, it’s way too freaking bright in Hong Kong and there were clouds. In the end, we just had wine and chilled there on the beach and we head out after a few hours.Check out the size of that freakin snail btw. GIGANTIC. That’s a full sized wine bottle there!

Today at work was kind of unbearable. I was exhausted from the night cause I went to sleep too late and had to rush out the door. I should have called in sick! After work, I got home and had to wait for Dom to pick up Vince’s charger, and wait for a DHL guy. A DHL guy?! I never ordered anything… yet it was for me. Last time I got a DHL order was from Amazon. I remembered having a convo with my friend Kaitlyne about my address and how to ship things there. I had a feeling it was from her – just didn’t know what. The guy came and I signed off on it. Busted open the package ASAP and what do you know? It really was the case that I posted on my Facebook wall. Time to post more expensive stuff! Thanks Kaitlyne! You’re the first person to mail me anything at my new place.
