Sha Tin at Dusk

Sha Tin outdoors smells like Singapore and many parts of SEA. It’s a clean, lush, jungle smell. A little bit of cooked rice. I love that river, and the lack of people, the park. The people on bicycles. It’s very calming compared to the city. It’s kind of nostalgic. New Town Plaza is a different story, though.

Budapest

Budapest is an amazing city. So beautiful. The service is surprisingly fantastic. The food is delicious.The people are friendly, and for English speakers - English is widely spoken. On top of that, they don’t get irritated with you!

It is very affordable to eat, stay and shop, especially for a European city.

Budapest is kind of perfect.

Prague

I think I had really high expectations for Prague but the old-town district is completely overrun with tourists and feels very soulless.

The rest of central praha is just…abandoned or something I dunno but there’s no-one on the streets. 

I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing or what, but the majority of people don’t seem very happy, and I come from Hong Kong which is apparently populated by rude people.

I was running late for my doctors appointment and couldn’t get a taxi. As I started walking it became clear why there were no cars passing by.

On my way back home there were so many reporters at the scene, and I thought “wow slow news day, hey.” 

Later I found out a pregnant lady was crushed by the tree and died. Her baby was taken out by emergency c-section and is in the ICU. The TV news showed the pool of blood amidst the foliage! Still not used to that.

So tragic, seriously.

Clutching at straws

Why today was an unusually happy day:

1. A stranger greeted me in the elevator (what!? In hong kong?)

2. Had my eyes tested and my eyesight prescription has not change since 1.5 years ago!

3. The taxi driver asked me If I’d eaten yet

4. I rode the tram

5. The juice delivery guy was in the shop today and he remembered my name! And noticed my haircut! Also his very british accent makes everything sound so delightful. He may or may not be the reason we drink so much vegetable juice in this household.

6. Husband came home :)

7. Oh and I finally had my glasses adjusted and they stay on my face now. Seriously, it’s the best.
