Laziness

22 Jun Chicken Pie in Pea Soup with Ketchup Squirt

Why oh why have I disappeared for a while? One word: laziness. School started and has been rather tiring with endless lectures…and my insomnia hasn’t resolved itself so I’m still sleeping at 2-3 most day (5 am last night actually…) đŸ˜¦ I’ve also been up to a lot these past 2 weeks!

On June 11, I attended the 30th anniversary Faculty Gala Dinner at the HKCEC. Actually, not only was I attending…I performed too!

HUGE VENUE...120 tables

The venue was humongous and the guest list was prestigious, including our Secretary for Justice, Secretary for Food and Health, a few past and present Deans….and a LOT OF MY PROFESSORS. I sat with the band I was performing in the most far left corner table, which allowed us to chat away while the numerous speeches were going on. Performing with me were 3 psychiatrists (2 of which have taught me before), one Family Medicine doctor, and one orthopaedic surgeon. Oh, and also 2 of my classmates. Soooo…of course I was nervous. We came at the end after a talk by Professor Joseph Sung and a few other profs, and played these songs: Bohemian Rhapsody + A Hard Day’s Night Medley (Queen/Beatles), Ye Lai Xiang (Teresa Tang), Blessing (Hins Cheung), Heal the World (MJ), and our Faculty Song. Thankfully all went…OK well…other than my amp getting cut off all the time.

Probably the only photo where I don't look exceedingly nervous

This is probably the first and last time I’ll get to perform in front of SO MANY PEOPLE. Amazing.

Then, the week after, I headed to a magical place…

Amazing Week

14 May View of the Shing Mun River near Che Kung Temple

Wow this week’s been the most amazing week ever…definitely made me love HK a little bit more and miss Paris a little bit less. So, recap:

Monday: Mother’s day lunch at Sushi Fuku-Suke which was really good. Had the omakase dinner there before already which I found not very creative, but lunch is a really good deal for quality Japanese food! Too bad the place was half empty…guys…….radiation won’t hurt you that way. Please support your local Japanese restaurants. Then, went to the Jacky Cheung concert at night with the parents. I know like NONE of his songs lol….and he’s not even hot, so it was kind of boring. Oh well…the whole point was to spend time with my parents, so that was nice.

Tuesday: I went to a new riding club in Clearwater Bay for my assessment lesson, and I love that place! It reminds me of the barns in Vancouver, with the whole tackshop/office setup, totally overpriced drinks+ice-cream, and horse show DVDs playing on the TV. Rode a horse called Blaizer who had a super bouncy trot, but an amazing canter. Too bad I’m still on the waiting list as their weekends are quite full.

Wednesday: I played the TGV set I bought for the kid I tutor……..and we both love it!! I also went to the Pixar exhibition at Shatin in the afternoon, which was my first visit to a museum in HK since…..forever. I miss Paris’ HUGE museums, but it’s interesting to go through HK’s museums too. I bought a yearpass which should motivate me to visit more. Walked a bit around Ma On Shan and the Shing Mun River area and took some pretty pics. I guess nature can be found in HK too lol. Then, I went home to a long day of waiting for the aircon guys to install my new aircon (my old one had something wrong with the compressor or something). Finished around 10 pm….
