Start of the long weekend

I got up at 8am this morning, to make sure I was awake for when our home delivery arrived today. Their window was 9am – 2pm, which is a pretty damn huge window! πŸ˜‚ Luckily they arrived at around 11am, so we didn’t have to wait around for too long.

We had lunch in Wan Chai at Sabah Malaysian Cuisine, which apparently is in the Michelin Guide! It reminded me so much of SG, where all these types of dishes were just readily available. Awww SG, still missing you πŸ˜” But they’re closing in October, due to their lease expiring, so we’ll have to find out where they end up setting up shop again, for those times when we have a hankering for Malaysian food πŸ˜‹

We stopped by the computer centre once again, since we were in the area. It’s almost obligatory to stop by if we’re in Wan Chai πŸ˜‚ This time N bought some charging cables. I think electronics are his gazingus pins, a term coined by the authors of Your Money or Your Life to describe items that you are just compelled to buy, even if you already have a bajillion other similar items at home. So he always wants to stop by electronics stores and check out whatever gadgets they have there. In SG it was Challenger; here, it’s pretty hard to beat the Wan Chai Computer Centre! πŸ˜‚

My gazingus pin is stationery 😊 I love stationery, and I really have to stop myself from buying the stuff. This is one area where I am not an underbuyer! πŸ˜‚ But I have reined in this buying habit a fair bit now, and I have told myself that I have to use up all the stationery at home first before I can buy any more. I’ve kept it under control so far, as my desire for a less cluttered home is also quite strong. But yeah, stationery is definitely my gazingus pin πŸ˜†

We’re planning on going to Macau tomorrow, I’m very excited! Another new country to visit 😊 Although technically part of China, like HK is, it also falls under the “one country, two systems” policy, so it’s also a “Special Administrative Region”. But I still see it as a country in its own right, despite the technicalities. I’m excited to be doing this day trip! 😊

Earphones and Asian Dramas

We went and had yum cha in Wan Chai today. There’s a computer centre in Wan Chai, not sure if I’ve mentioned it before. We like going there for all our electronic needs. I needed a new pair of earphones. I wanted to get a wireless pair, as it’s hard to practise dancing without headless earphones, as I have to hold my phone the entire time, and I can’t move my arms around as easily, which is necessary in Latin. We found a pretty cheap pair, as I don’t really need anything fancy, especially if it’s really more for when I’m practising. I could easily lose it, or break it, so an el cheapo pair is perfect πŸ‘Œ

And so I used them tonight at the gym. It doesn’t have much of a bass, but like I said, good enough for my purpose. I felt so free today! πŸ˜„

And we finished off the evening with another episode of the Cantonese drama, The Exorcist’s Meter. It’s not a bad drama. For some reason, it’s taking us forever to finish it. Oh, I know why: because N has been travelling so much for work lately! Ugh. He’s in HK all of next week, at least. I am currently juggling about four Asian dramas at the moment, it’s a bit insane πŸ˜‚ And I’m not making much headway on any of them as I’ve been busy working on my goals lately! Which isn’t a bad thing 😊
