Back in Shatin...

No more dog climbing to me and licking my face in the morning.  No more beer drinking outside the nice patio.  I'm back in my uncle's place in Shatin for now.  Anyway, didn't do much today except heading out for a buffet lunch with my dad's elder sister and her husband (yes, that's my uncle and aunt).  Then head back to Tai Po and packed up, so here I am in Shatin. 

Will update on tomorrow's happenings.  I really reek of sweat right now.  I need a shower.

Back from Disneyland!

Went out to Hong Kong Disneyland with family today and it's not as bad as people say it was back when it first opened.  (Remember Daniel Wu's rant about their terrible service a few years ago?)  The rides may not be as intense as the ones in Canada's Wonderland but they were still entertaining.  I particularly enjoyed Space Mountain.  It was like a ride/light show.  Then of course, there is Mickey's Philhar-magic which is a 3D musical medley of other famous songs from Disney's animated classics.  Thank god Mickey did...Read more

homesick...

miss my usual drinking buddies...

despite the convenience of cheap beer in 7-11, it's just not the same without a drinking buddy.  i can't wait to go back to toronto... 25 remaining days feels like an eternity.

In Love with the Dead / 塚愛

Just came back from UA Shatin theatre not too long ago and watched Danny Pang's "In Love with the Dead".  Having intentionally skipped all news articles related to the film, I knew I would enjoy the film a little more.  And right, I was.  I did enjoy it.  Despite starring Shaun Yu and ex-Cookies member Stephy Tang, I'd have to confirm with y'all that nobody really overacts like actors usually do in TVB dramas.  In fact, Shaun Yu did a splendid job in his role as the boyfriend of a cancer patient stuck between ...Read more

yesterday...

Managed to go to several places I've never gone before.

昨天去了幾個未去過的地方。

First, I went to a restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui East with a magnificent view of the sea.  Ate with family from my father's side.  I even see that my cousin's wife is very pregnant.  She's expecting her 2nd child (rumoured to be a boy this time).  After the lunch, my uncle dropped me off to the Joy Sales office so I could, at least, get some of my money or grab some of the work material I'm going to need (specifically a screener copy of "...Read more

please...no more delays...

Saturday proved to be a disappointment.  I had a meeting with my boss and he postponed my payment...again...  It was originally going to be for yesterday but I was pretty occupied for Sunday.  Then, there was today...Monday...no can do because he's gone to Mainland China and I was supposed to go to Macau but it cancelled out due to my uncle getting an injury from taekwokdo practice.  So, the earliest is Tuesday.  I'm in need of money and I need their help by providing me a screener copy of "Black Cat" (1 and 2) so...Read more

random food for thought...

我來到香港不經不覺已經有六天多了。至於有沒有外出觀光的話﹐很慚愧﹗我基乎沒有。反而我專注考慮自己能不能夠適應在香港的生活。昨晚我走路找UA沙田戲院時﹐我碰到一面貌可愛的美籍日裔女子在商場外面抽煙。我便以英語問她戲院在哪兒﹐她便指著戲院方向。她便問我怎樣看得出她是講英文的。我說我是憑她穿著的衣服猜到的。她穿那件衫寫著USC這三個字母(我雖不知USC是什麼學院但我猜這學院是在美國加州的)。件衫還寫著"alumni"這個字﹐我猜到她是在這學校畢業的。後來發覺我原來全部猜中了。於是乎﹐我們便坐下來傾談一起抽煙。我便為了拖長我們詳談而亂說道理。在我亂說之際中﹐我發現了一個人生道理。我一直埋怨自己不能適應香港生活。就算我懂得聽/講/寫中文埋怨這些﹐香港原來有很多外國人又要這樣適應港式生活。它們又是這樣子過生活。還有﹐我跟她過我這樣埋怨有點矛盾。如果我父母能夠在30年前以香港移民身份適應到加拿大的生活的話﹐我又何嘗不能做我父母當年做過的事情呢﹖唯一分別是﹔我是要適應我父母的出生土。我還有很多東西要考慮。

 

It's been close to a week since I came down to Hong K...Read more

tired out...time to move again...

After that sour experience at Shum Sui Po 2 nights ago, I decided to do absolutely nothing yesterday so I can rest up and do a bit of work for Joy Sales.  I talked to the guy who ditched me at Dragon Centre 2 nights ago and he explained that his cell phone broke.  I accepted his excuse.  Couldn't bother with letting the argument escalate.  Whatever.  Lesson learned.  And thanks for the tip on the mopiko...I actually kinda answered my own question when I thought of a Hong Kong style Shoppers Drug Mart.  I still don't ...Read more

where to buy...

obviously, i am pretty bad at finding things for the last few days.  but i really need to find this on an emergency.  i need to know where to get an AC adapter for my Nintendo DS and a "mopiko" bar.  cuz i just woke up with mosquito bites. 

anyone know?

很明顯﹐我在過去幾天找東西的能力極為之差。但我真的很需要買。我想知道什麼地方可以買任天堂DS插頭和“無比膏”一個。因為我今天醒來被蚊咬。

有沒有人知道嗎﹖
