Home Sweet Home

Bad blogger over here.

Did not take ANY pictures on the flights back cuz I was too tired to do anything. Plus, sitting on your ass for a good 15+ hours for one flight is hard enough … oh and not to mention a sweaty guy with big B.O. sitting next to me. Sorry, I don’t want to be mean but sitting next to someone like that for a good 15+ hours is hell.

I did however watch SEVEN movies while in air.

Yep. Seven.

  1. Race to Witch Mountain
  2. This Means War
  3. Welcome to the Riley’s
  4. One Day
  5. I Love Hong Kong 2012
  6. Glee: The 3D Concert Movie
  7. Coraline

I loved every single movie I watched. I cried in some of them. Embarrassing right? Crying on the plane … only me.

Whoever invented watching TV/Movies while flying is GENIUS! And the fact that it’s complimentary, you’ll be dumb not watching. Especially now with how plane tickets are CAH-RAZY!

I miss Hong Kong. I miss Macau. I miss Taiwan. And the people in it.

I am already planning on going back soon. Definitely NOT 15 years later like before.

I have 228 blog posts to go through in my Google Reader and as I type, it goes up a little at a time so late comments might occur. Beware.Winking smile

Day 22: Last Day, Sad Day

Not a good day for pictures. I packed my bags and forgot to take my camera with me when I went out the door.

I had Dim Sum for brunch with PoPo and Mum. Then Mum and I went shopping and bought a lot of little things. Last day … had to buy, buy, buy!

After that, all I did was sleep and play on the computer. Very relaxing.

Dinner of Pigeon, intestines, veggies, and homemade soup. Going to miss PoPo’s cooking.

I’m up in the air right now flying high in the sky.

Next time I “talk” to y’all will be when I’m back in the states.

Peace and Love.

Day 21: Samsung Galaxy S3!!

IMG_8450IMG_8462

The aftermath of the storm … not that bad over here but it’s worse other parts of Hong Kong.

IMG_8453IMG_8454IMG_8455IMG_8456

Ate at another Shanghai Restaurant … Shanghai Po Po Restaurant. Not as great as yesterdays but it was okay.

IMG_8457

Saw this view while walking in the mall. More aftermath cleaning up and people shopping and whatnot.

Got a haircut … finally. This is the best picture I can show you … I didn’t take any except for this one.

I want to come back once a year for a haircut … from this place … by Brenda. YES.

Oh … and did I mention. When they wash your hair, they go through a long process? They put stuff in my hair and rinsed and repeated four times. And they massage your head. I’m not a great fan of it but dude … I almost fell asleep.

IMG_8463IMG_8464

We bought some piggie bread and cakes for Vincent and Alva since they had to go to work.

IMG_8473

Mum and I met Kathy at one of the subway stops. Then we went to Ladies’ Market. A place where people open their own shops on the streets and you can buy things. I went down the whole street but only a few things caught my eye … for other people.

IMG_8474IMG_8475

When we were leaving going to the subway, Mum wanted some fishballs so fishballs we got. And I finally got my STINKY TOFU! Real stinky tofu. Not like the ones in Taiwan where they were not stinky enough. Ah .. heaven.

Kathy bought me this little beauty … without letting me know! Samsung Galaxy S3. Sahweet! I cannot wait to physically use it. (I have to wait till I’m back in the States …) I’ve been playing with it and I’m already in love. Winking smile

IMG_8477IMG_8478IMG_8476

Dinner was intestines with noodles, veggies, and fried fish skin.

Done deal.

Bags are packed .. hopefully we aren’t overloaded.

Day 20: All We Do Is Eat

IMG_8437IMG_8438IMG_8439IMG_8440IMG_8444IMG_8441IMG_8442IMG_8443IMG_8436IMG_8435

Due to going to bed late, I woke up at a good 1pm. YEP! Waited for Vincent and we didn’t eat till 3pm. Just Mum, Vincent, and I at a Shanghai restaurant and all the foods … we are fatties for sure. So GOOD!

Since there was a thunderstorm warning there wasn’t ANY one at the restaurant except us. And when we went shopping later after eating one of the stores literally said, “Are you done? It’s thunder storming and we want to go home …”

Wonderful. So all I ended up with was ONE Essie nail polish.

IMG_8447IMG_8449IMG_8446IMG_8448

What dinner consisted of. PoPo was sick so she got congee while the rest of us (Mum, Kathy, Vincent, Rachel, and I) gobbled on all the pizza and many chickens.

Somehow we ended up with a good 14 pieces of fried chicken …. holy mackerel. We obviously didn’t finish it all …

The dang storm won’t let up. It is bipolar. It’ll rain then stop then rain then stop and on and on … Sad smile

Fingers crossed tomorrow will be better!

Day 19: Food Galore

IMG_8375IMG_8376IMG_8377IMG_8378IMG_8379
IMG_8380IMG_8381IMG_8372IMG_8373IMG_8374

Dim Sum with Mum, PoPo, Kathy, Vincent, and Rachel. YUM!

IMG_8382IMG_8383

Still no Victoria Peak … it started to rain when we got into a bus sans PoPo and we went to some kind of village place instead. It’s by the Ocean Theme Park! Look at the mountains!

IMG_8389

We bought some snacks …. and this is the BEST out of all of them! Smile Smile

IMG_8393IMG_8399

We shopped a bit then walked around the ocean.

IMG_8402

Funny car license …

IMG_8429IMG_8430IMG_8431IMG_8405IMG_8406IMG_8407IMG_8408IMG_8409IMG_8410IMG_8411IMG_8412IMG_8413IMG_8414IMG_8415IMG_8416IMG_8417IMG_8419IMG_8420IMG_8421IMG_8422IMG_8423IMG_8424IMG_8425IMG_8426IMG_8427IMG_8428IMG_8432

We then went to ALL YOU CAN EAT Japanese food! … Bad service. I think their place is called Kushi … Horrible horrible people. But the food isn’t bad. I’d only go if I wanted good food but not if I was very hungry.

Lately all we’ve done is eat … I feel like I’m stuffed to the brim … but so worth it. Smile

It’s thunder storming over here … so we haven’t done anything at all. This makes for a sad Melissa. Only 3-4 more days here … and it’s spent indoors. SHUCKS!

Day 18: Thunderstorm Warning

IMG_8357IMG_8358

Since I heard the news of sissy’s engagement I was too excited to fall back to sleep so I went to Kathy and Mum. Breakfast is served. The little doggies taste way different. Less sodium or something I guess.

Then we bought some cakes for PoPo.

Went home and relaxed a little bit then shopped a little more.

Had lunch … soooo good. This sausage was a jumbo and taste so much better!

We had plans to go somewhere but … thunderstorm warning made us stay in instead. Mum and I packed our luggage to see how much we can fit and all that jazz. Overload. We will figure it out later.

Then dinner was served. Obviously we didn’t do much today.

IMG_8364IMG_8365IMG_8368IMG_8366IMG_8367IMG_8369

So good. My favorite is the first two eats. I want to have it again before I leave but I highly doubt it.

IMG_8370IMG_8371

Since we didn’t do much tonight and we had to cancel our plans, Kathy decided to buy tickets to watch the 12:30am showing of The Dark Knight Returns.

Oh hello, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Winking smile 

Their popcorn is different here … it’s CARAMEL popcorn. HOLY MOLY! Too sweet but so crunchy good!

We didn’t get out of the theater till around 3am! But it was so worth it. Love when sexy men are trying to save the world …

Day 17: Intestines In My Mouf

** Sissy and Brett got engaged! I is happy. Hopefully she’s not mad that I just shared it to the world. I cannot contain my excitement!

IMG_8332IMG_8333

Anyway. Day started out with a Weiner dog and egg tart. Mum and I waited for the longest time for PoPo to go dim sum with her but she already ate … and we found out a long time after. We were starving by then.

IMG_8336

Then I went to the mailbox to mail all those dang postcards. So cute .. it’s called a Letter Box.

IMG_8340IMG_8342IMG_8343IMG_8341IMG_8344

Then we ate at a Japanese Restaurant. Tea. Iced Lemon Tea. Salad. Seaweed Salad. Miso Soup. Sushi & Sashimi Box. Grilled Mackerel. YUM!

IMG_8345IMG_8348IMG_8350

VitaSoy afterward. Lots of shopping. I bought Chinese Made Easy for Kids 1st book … time to learn how to read and write! I already know how to listen and speak. But this is a little different. It’s for Mandarin … not Cantonese. But it shouldn’t be that hard. I also bought Pens and Watercolour Pencils! And then another VitaSoy … malted. YUM!

IMG_8346IMG_8347IMG_8351IMG_8352IMG_8353IMG_8354IMG_8355IMG_8356

Dinner … served.

Intestines. Duck. Celery with Squid. Veggies. Fish. More Belly Intestine stuff. Soup! BEER!

I should be on Victoria Peak (Hong Kong’s mountain top) later tonight watching the gorgeous view if the Thunderstorm has let up. It should look something like this. Fingers crossed.

Peace and Love!
