Rounding out the month

I got up at ridiculous o’clock this morning for no reason whatsoever. And so my morning ended up being quite productive as a result. Every time I get up early, I always seem to get a ton of stuff done in the morning, so I don’t know why I don’t get up earlier more often… Maybe that could be my goal for June 😊

N came back from Taiwan today, so we decided to go out for dinner. The pizzeria we went to plays retro music – ie music from our era 😆 A few songs that we heard tonight:

  • Truly Madly Deeply – Savage Garden
  • Torn – Natalie Imbruglia
  • This Kiss – Faith Hill
  • You’re Still The One – Shania Twain
  • All My Life – K-Ci & Jojo

And then a few Celine Dion songs and a Mariah Carey song, I can’t remember which ones now.

So it has a pretty cool atmosphere! Plus even though it’s a restaurant, it’s really casual, and doesn’t actually have a door, you just sorta walk in. So it’s got a bit of a front courtyard feel, if that makes sense. Their service is great and their food is good too. It’s a bit farther up on the mid-levels escalator, and not many people tend to go up that far, so it’s also pretty quiet there. It was a bit pricey, as western food tends to be in this city, but ok for the occasional dinner.

We then went home and watched Hello Mrs Money, this Chinese movie that N started watching on the plane but didn’t finish. It wasn’t all that great, really. It was funny at times, but for the most part, it just wasn’t all that great. I should’ve used it more for listening practice – ie something to be studied – rather than reading the English subtitles and enjoying it as a movie, because there really wasn’t much enjoyment to be gained from it 😆

And here I end May. Bring on June, I say, and a brand new season – my favourite. YEAH!! ☀️ Unfortunately, apparently this also means typhoon season in HK, so I’m a little concerned with that… I’m not sure just how bad these typhoons can get, and I can only go by the terrible damage The Big Almighty One did last year… 😟 Was that a particularly bad one, or are they more or less of that magnitude nowadays?? Unfortunately we will be here to find out…!
