A lame cop-out

I went to bed quite late last night, and was woken up a few times by Little Miss, which has been the norm for her now for goodness knows how long 😩 So the lack of sleep, which was also disrupted, didn’t leave me very alert today πŸ˜” I wonder if there’s a way to stop her from waking up in the middle of the night. I might try spraying this “calming spray” that we bought at the vet, for when your cat is about to do something stressful – like go to the vet! πŸ˜† It’s supposed to help them relax a bit. I don’t know how effective it is with her, but I use it anyway, just in case it actually does help her to relax. I tend to use it more for when we’ve just moved into a new home, which is obviously very stressful for everyone. But it may help her for more day to day relaxation as well.

We were supposed to go to the gym again tonight, but I was tired and also rather comfortable on the couch watching Goblin, my current Korean drama, so N just went without me. Not good! Especially after yesterday’s session that felt really good. A pretty lame cop-out, in all honesty πŸ˜”



I watched the second episode of Goblin, my new Korean drama. It was actually quite mediocre compared to the first episode, I was rather disappointed! It got a very high rating on mydramalist.com, and the first episode lived up to this rating, so I’m quite surprised that it’s already starting to lose its appeal. I hope it picks up soon, otherwise I may just have to abandon this drama and move on to the next one πŸ˜” But I do want to give this one a chance, as some dramas that I’ve watched in the past have started off slow, but then got really good as the drama continued, so I shouldn’t be so hasty! πŸ˜†

And then we watched the Detective Pikachu movie tonight. The PokΓ©mon were sooo cuuute! But apart from them, I didn’t think much of the rest of the movie, unfortunately. Ryan Reynolds was his usual funny self, so that helped, but yeah, not much else going for this movie πŸ˜”

And coupled with some pretty ordinary trading today, basically my Friday was filled with mediocrity ☹️

Crazy HK weather

Typhoon season in HK apparently coincides with summer, which is a real shame, because I miss out on beautiful summer days. The weather warnings here, as you can appreciate, are very detailed, given the relative frequency of typhoons in this city. For rainstorms, they have three levels – from lightest to heaviest: amber, red and black. We have already seen a few amber warnings, and the rain during these times is quite heavy. You’ll be soaked without an umbrella, and it would be quite nice to be wearing gum boots. I’m nervous to see what the rain that accompanies red and black warnings looks like… Let alone typhoon warnings…! Typhoons apparently happen a handful of times each year, and some are non-events. But the actual “eventful” ones are the ones I really don’t want to experience! I’ll definitely be letting you know how they are when one does eventuate… 😟

So for people thinking of coming by HK for a holiday, I would definitely recommend going during the cooler months, say November to March. The rest of the time it’s just hot and muggy, and then you also have typhoon season to contend with, when your holiday is more likely than not to be washed out πŸ˜”

I started my new Korean drama today: Goblin. It’s looking promising already! The good ones get you hooked right from the first episode, I tell you πŸ˜† It has a supernatural theme, but not in the usual scary, horror way. I prefer this less-scary way 😊 Actually, I haven’t watched one with a supernatural theme in a while, so I’m probably due to watch something in this genre. It’s a short series with only 16 episodes, so I should be done before I even know it. And if the crappy weather continues and staying home is the more appealing option than having to brave the weather outside, I’ll get through the series even faster πŸ˜†
