Hong Kong. It's the land of food and shopping. I'm sure everyone is well aware of the fact. I'm no exception. Just that, even though I've been there several times in the past, I did not pay attention to anything else much in Hong Kong besides well, food and shopping. When I was much younger and still schooling, I was focused on the shopping aspect of Hong Kong whenever I flew over. Then in my past two trips within the last five years, I was obsessed with the dining culture of Hong Kong. Luckily though, in the midst of all the pigging out I did on my last trip in 2014, I somehow managed to pay some attention to my surroundings, and capture non-food related snaps.
So there you go, a behind-my-lens POV of the bustling city.
I'm celebrating a one-week anniversary of a sprained leg. Oh, haven't I mentioned? My middle name happens to be Klutz. In case you were wondering, I sprained my leg on flat ground, while wearing flats. Okay, to be more precise, I was stepping off the pavement to cross the road (no traffic lights), so I turned my head to keep a look out for cars, and somewhere in between that coordination (or lack of) between my brain and my body, I sprained my ankle and managed to park my butt on the road. Talk about mortification. I'm not even going to think about whether I flashed anyone in the midst of my fall. *shudders*And it's no-exercise for the next two weeks or so. *wails*
It's not the first time I'm being clumsy, and sigh, I can't blame anyone except myself. Well, then I guess I should be glad that my overseas trip this coming long weekend was cancelled cos I can't do much walking anyway. As my friend had a last minute work trip, we had to cancel our tickets. :( Okay, I'm officially suffering from withdrawal travel symptoms.
SO. Instead of moaning about lack of travel plans, I decided to have a look at some of my old (way overdue) photos of our Japan trip early last year. These are the last set of photos, and it's all about food, glorious food.
I never knew that I could possibly experience nausea that would result in me not eating anything for more than eighteen hours. I literally did not eat anything from 4-ish yesterday afternoon till 11am this morning. And even then, when I was chomping on a piece of bread, I was eating for the sake of eating, and not because I was hungry. Me, not eating. I never imagined the day I would see those words in a sentence together. I was never the kind who who have no appetite. Like say if I'm stressed, instead of having no appetite like some people do, I just carry eating as usual without a care. Oh well, that just goes to show the wide range of side effects that period pains can bring about. The woes of being a woman.
There are days where I use my laptop to death, switching it on almost the moment I step into the house; and then there are days where I can spend days not even touching it at all. I went without turning on my laptop for the whole of the week. After staring at the computer the whole day at work, it is certainly a break after work cos I can do other stuff, like say, head out with friends, gym, read a book, or get addicted to mobile phone games (yes, I'm currently hooked onto Alpha Betty, no thanks to my colleague). Talk about subbing one form of technology with another. *shakes head at self*
Havn't had the time to bake much lately since I came back from my Melbourne trip. Fathers' Day is coming soon, I'm thinking a cake is in order. Now, to decide between the Dad's perennial favourites -mango, or rum and raisin?
