I arrived early this morning. The flight was long. Six hrs from Toronto to Anchorage (Alaska) and 15 more to Hong Kong.
The seats are cramp so I pretty much sleep for an hour and get up to change position. Repeat that for 10 times and that's my flight. The onboard meals were more like snacks. Lots of sat fat and trans fat. But nothing I can do.
All I can say is that I love the weather. 20 degree * C and cloudy. No humid at all. Compare to the freezing weather in Toronto. No contest.
I haven't came back for more than 10 years. This place is packed. Everyone is going somewhere and doing something. Fast pace lifestyle. My uncle (where I am staying right now) is further away. Kinda like the suburbs. The villa that he lives in is quiet.
My foot is getting better. Perhaps it is because I sat in the plane for so long and letting it rest. My right knee is giving me problem. A few weekends ago, I was playing paintball and I banged my right knee when I fell. Even now, I can feel a minor ache inside of my kneecap.
If not for the knee and the foot, I would love to go for a quick jog. My aunt showed me the local gym. The closest pool is a 30 min commute. Ekk. I gotta find something closer.
My grandma's (dad side) funeral is tomorrow night and Wed morning. I haven't been to a chinese funeral before. So I don't know what to expect. In chinese culture, we are to wear white overalls. We got the right outfits today before lunch.
Glad to see my uncles and my aunts. My dad haven't see his bro/sis for a long time. So the gathering, despite being in a funeral, will hopefuly be warm
My grandma (mom side) walks 2-3 hrs every morning. I would love to walk w/ her. Then train on my own. The rest of the day will be exploring Hong Kong, spending time with friends and relatives.
For now, I am still getting use to the time zone. It is 3 pm and I need a snooze....
Will post pics...
