Hectic April 2018
April has been such a hectic month. I realized how difficult it is to pursue your passions outside of work. After work on weekdays I would feel so drained that all I wanted to do is absolutely nothing - not even scrolling lifelessly on social media, let alone creating content.
In any case, there were some highlights this month:
1st: Finally met up with my high school BFFs for picnic and dinner
2nd: Hanged out with Herms Herman from Singapore. He was in Hong Kong for a business trip Long time no see my friend! And then I went to Lamma Island with my BF to see his friend.
7th: Had dinner with Vincent again. Passed by Mong Kok for the first time since I'm back and I forgot how insanely crowded that place is, on any given day/time.
8th: Hiked at Cape D'Aguilar. It was such a beautiful place. I also hanged out with some high school friends for drinks and dinner.
12th: Re-visited my absolute favorite French restaurant in Hong Kong - Les Fils à Maman. The Lamb was amazing.
13th: Finally hanged out with Chris! Spent the entire afternoon chatting with this guy.
14th: Went to this really cool bar named Sense 99 in Central where many artists hang out
15th: Hanged out with Billy for coffee and we walked all the way from Sai Ying Pun to Central
18th: Belif Event
20th: April 16-20 was one of the toughest weeks since I landed HK so obviously I planned myself a fun Friday evening:
- 7pm-10pm: Dinner in Causeway Bay with my younger brother and my cousin (表姐) who I haven't seen for a long time. But omg I lined up such a long queue just for an elevator to the restaurant (I waited for 20 mins! I'm not kidding). Food was okay. We went to a bar afterwards and it was quite fun. Very nice catch up moment.
- 10pm - Midnight: Then I hanged out with some friends from high school.
- Midnight - Late (4am?!?): Bing Bing to see my friends from Vancouver. Then I went to Time Bar for drinks, and then Zoo & Wink in Sheung Wan.
21st: Shot my first TV Commercial!! Not sure when it will air though. And then I went to see Joyce Cheng's Break A Leg concert. After that I hanged out with my BF's friends til like 3am at a bar near Tsim Sha Tsui and played some poker (I won many games :p)
22nd: Met up with Ivan for lunch and coffee. Love a good conversation on a Sunday afternoon
(and then I got sick for a few days...unfortunately)
27th: Time Bar 8th year anniversary!! I went there with Alexander and Matthew and their friends. Then I went to Petticoat Lane for the first time with them. There was a drag show that night. Pretty fun time.
28th: Ran home from to Admiralty because I needed some exercise. Then I went to Petticoat Lane again to see James & Anthony before they go.
29th: Met up with Mark for coffee. After that I ran a 5km at Instagram Pier. It was actually quite fun to watch all the people taking photos there and doing goofy things. Pretty crowded though the sunset was beautiful.
