Chilling out at my grandparents' apartment. Same building, but now things are new, like furniture. But I think that it's new mostly because they toss out more stuff to replace with sparse, new stuff. Like a flat screen tv and a small table that can convert to a big table.

It's been a nice change, seeing as how the past two days have been spent doing considerable walking and sightseeing. Two days ago was the first day for us in Hong Kong as the previous night was spent flying from California to Taipei and then to Hong Kong. I hate not having much freedom of movement and sitting in one small place for too long, so from that experience I've concluded that I hate flying. Not to mention the prevalent fear of crashing down with no Capt. Sully to land us in the Hudson River (or the Pacific but whatever).

Our first day, we had dim sum for lunch and walked around looking at shops. I went with my grandmother and mom while the menfolk resolved in bringing the computers to my grandparents' abode due to payment of interwebs in hotel. As a note, tonight I plan to take this baby with me back to my hotel room as I do have other things to do on this other than looking at the internet. Seeing as how our American flat iron is incompatible with foreign outlets, mom bought another flat iron from a store next to an open newstand (can they be called newstand?) where magazines and manga are sold openly along with newspapers and porn. That image of how paper media is displayed openly helps me understand a little better China's priorities regarding what can be openly sold, but then again it's not like Borders back home set up a special section labeled "XXX" or something. They're just not sold next to manga.

To be continued as we're now on the move back to the hotel, which will be internetless.ta

I'm at Hong Kong right now and despite it's dreary weather the atmosphere is incredibly warm and is tank-top suitable.

The last time I've been here was when I was eight years old, and I didn't remember much of it except for some prominent memories. Now, I just noticed how new everything looked, how it's not as hot as I remembered it, and that there's way too many people here.

I've been to San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Philadelphia, Toronto, and Washington D. C.

Hong Kong beat out most of them.

Current mission: Find the Square Enix store.
