Trouble in Hong Kong…

an outsider's perspective of hong kong

moving on…….

with 2 comments

i was so upset yesterday over a few things yesterday – i sent a text message to my husband – you know why it is so important for me to marry you? it is a reminder that on days when i don’t like myself there is the realization that someone does. he replied – it’s a nice quote and if you ever get famous one day, i’ll put it in time magazine!!


i hate that we are so entrenched  in the past. i hate that the papers still talk about michael jackson’s death. it’s like falling over, hurting yourself, the scab grows on top, then you pick it open and pour salt on it. we talk so much about the past, it f***king sickens me.

why don’t we let ourselves move on?

i’d be a fool if i cannot see how blessed i am with everything i have. truly i’d be..

i met this fantastic new friend bibi from south africa a few days ago. she came to hong kong three years ago. got a divorce shortly because her husband cheated.

i said – must be hard to leave everything behind, coming here and shit like that happens.

bibi said, ” it was hard but then i met my best friend here. i don’t want to keep knocking on an old door when it had already closed. i’ll just wait for the next to open”.

have a feeling that bibi and i will be great friends. bless you bibi!! bless you indeed!

  1. It’s so true, isn’t it? I suppose the past made us what we are, so we won’t let go because, I suppose, that means we lose a bit of us if and when we do. We are such creatures of habit, even in matters of the heart.

  2. Hi there

    Happy New Year!

    By the way, how’s your trip to New Zealand?
    I visited Auckland when I was on immersion for a Education course. It’s been over 8 years since then.
    Sincerely hope to hear more about your trip to NZ ‘coz we are planning to visit this lovely country again.

    If I remember correctly, are u from Malaysia?
    My hubby and I visited Malaysia during the New Year’s Eve, and we found Malaysians friendly, cheerful and helpful…however, we had a very unpleasant experience with G Hotel in Penang…

    With best wishes!
