My last days of 26...

The countdown started on Saturday...and I had a couple people making sure I knew they were going to make my birthday away from home be one that I would remember and enjoy...

My sister, Juliana and my now good friend May aka Koora...

They were absolutely incredible... The day started at Shek Oh beach...the day was beautiful, sun shining bright and the sand was hot...the beach was filled with people of all ages and sizes...there was a sea of umbrellas along the shore, a rare sight for someone from Toronto...

We set up our umbrellas by the bbq's, actually by our bbq pit which was the closest to the beach...so we definitely scored big on that...everything within a few steps and everybody within a shouting distance...there were seven of us and another popped by a little later...

There was a variety of MEAT to put on the Q, which is exactly what I needed...lots of food and drinks...

Then out to the water I went to toss the frisbee with the Mascordian...after the initial tosses, I found it quite hard to control the toss when I jump...i probably hit about 8 people within the first 10 tosses...not bad, I guess, if I was head-hunting...well, I did start getting a hang of it...so things were well for a few more minutes until hit a girl walking into the water with her boyfriend...of whom was unimpressed...but not at me...he saw the Mascordian going for the frisbee so dude tossed the frisbee over his head and said something that made the Mascordian stand and stare...

Then the Mascordian gave him a piece of his mind and after I walked over there and gave him a few words in my vocabulary, dude became very apologetic and said he knew it was an accident...and walked away...

After that little spat, we continued our frisbee tossing...then we got bored b/c we got good at it and couldn't miss...so we got the hell out...and then, I went back out on the raft with Koora while everyone else started to cook and eat...

Before I go any further, let it be known that I had purchased a new pair of swimming shorts...

So to the water I go again...on a raft...and the next thing I know, I get flipped right in! What the shit? i swam the raft with her on it and what do I get in return for my efforts? go drink some nasty  and salty garbage water...Mmmmm! yummy...yeah right! so the Flippin' begins!  She couldn't beat me...she had to give up after the 6th time...but she got me bad...

I got a rude awakening when I helped her up onto the raft the last time, I was notified that I had been tanning something I didn't mean to tan...there was a big rip in my shorts...and my B*lls were getting some sun...yeah, ain't that cool? thought so...

So after some more water-play, we headed back to eat and drink with them peeps...the sun came down (incredible view of the mountains and the sunset), the food slowly filled stomachs, marshmellows became smores, bags were getting packed and away we went...

We ran out of cups...that's Black Label and Coke in a bowl...Next, the HO-tel! we spent the rest of the night there hanging out, eating and drinking and playing Monopoly...I wish I could tell you I won but that wasn't the case...I was the first one out...not cool dude...not on my bday...I lost in Monopoly! that's my game...I'm supposed to be Lee Ka Shing...

The next day, Koora and I met up with Phil, and we hung out at his place...we ordered KFC for my birthday meal and played a bunch of video games before watching Shaun of the Dead...which was definitely a hilarious movie that I wouldn't mind watching over again! The KFC was alright...filling...and greasy...but it was FREE FOOD! so yeah, it was phenomenal! Thanks Phil...

Then came Monday, the day of my birth...my colleagues felt that it would be necessary to buy me a birthday cake and have a lil break from work and hang out...good excuse to relax a bit...they were awesome...can't ask for better people to hang out with at work...well, ok, there might be couple people i would prefer over some of them but you know what I mean...

So after work, I left to meet my sis to go up to the PEAK...plan was to Tram it up since a few of never tried it...well, was I in for a ride...the hill is hella steep for one...and just my luck (again, I'm terrified with heights, yeah laugh all you want, I'm over it...ok, not really, but that's besides the point here), the tram stops at the steepest part of the hill...and I was sitting at the back...all I felt was a lil teetering back and forth on the hill...all I kept thinking about was the tram going backwards at a blistering speed like a roller coaster....FREAKY!

But then the delay was over and onwards we went...got to the top, shot the light show from the only place we could see the city without travelling up to the Sky terrace...then to BubbaGump Shrimp Co.  for dinner....and wow was that filling...alright food, great view, and good service...had a surprise cake come out, Koora bought a cake designed like a slate aka clapboard with film around the sides...looked awesome, and really appreciated the effort that came with making that happen...the cake itself was edible only to certain point and we left it for the workers at the restaurant to finish...

but all in all, a great time...took some pics after up at the Sky Terrace...and then homeward bound we went...but I stayed back with Koora to hang out and have a couple puffs...and then I went home...

I waited for the bus for about 25 minutes and within the waiting period a friggin' storm decided to rain on my parade...and then like it wasn't enough that I was dodging the massive amounts of precipitation, some DOUCHE bag drives right through a puddle and SPLASH! watered down like a plant, from head to toe...that was friggin' awesome...great way to end the night...

finally got home at 3am, took me a shower, spoke to the MAN above, and fell asleep in seconds...only to wake up late for work...shit happens...apparently to me...

Nonetheless, I'd like to thank those who sent me well wishes and those who put in their time to spend it with me for my birthday, even though I'm just a tourist turned visitor...it was definitely memorable...THANK YOU!

One day removed from twenty-six...I'm feeling old already...shit...

Another year in this Lo-Life...
