Chow Chow in da house!

princess & momo 2


Visitor in my house - MoMo 毛毛
She's the most teddy-bear like dog I've ever liked -- CHOW CHOW!!
The only breed of dog that I love since small, because it's the most bear-like creature I can have... we can't rear a bear ma.. I'm always fond of bears~~
Gonna be guarding her temporarily for now.

momo 1


She's currently in hibernating mode.... and snoring.
Not kidding, SHE SNORES.
Oh I love her paws! So cute! Like a bear too.

momo 2


You know what.
Tonight is the first time ever in FB that I receive such quick responses after I posted a photo. That's her.

Hui Lau Shan Healthy Dessert (許留山)- my mango-licious sweet tooth

Finally...
after a few trips to Hong Kong...
I pleased my tastebuds with Hui Lau Shan mango dessert!!

hui lau shan 01

You wouldn't believe it right?

Who would leave Hong Kong without paying a visit to any of Hui Lau Shan's outlet? Well, maybe first timers exempted.

Last week during my transit flight in HK back from the USA, I told myself, NO MATTER WHAT, even if I had to go through the immigration to get to Hui Lau Shan, I WILL.

So I did~

That's the outlet in the HKIA (airport) that I visited and had a gulp of the juicy mango dessert!
*Still missing it... awww....*

我的孤单北半球 - Massive 8.9 quake in Japan, Tsunami Alert in California

March 11th 2011, sunny day

I though I was not going to write any diary until I go back home next week due to tireness after work, but today marks a massive disaster in history that trembled my soul as soon as I woke up. The news, the emails, the messages in FB... all about Japan's massive 8.9 quake and Tsunami happened when I was already in dreamland last night.

It's the very first time that I'm away from home, away from my loved ones that I receive such shocking news about natural disaster hitting Asia. Though it's not affecting my homeland, but still it hit Asia.. I don't feel good anyway, my soul was kinda get strolled away at the hotel cafe in the morning, where I use to watch the news while eating breakfast before going to work. Worst earthquake in Japan's history, breaking a record in this 300 years... What's worse, many other areas around the world received Tsunami alert, including where I am right now.. *sigh*

The National Weather Service list includes Japan, Russia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Australia, Fiji, Mexico, New Zealand, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru and the United States.

Yes, the USA, apparently the Pacific coastline, including California's bay area. Aawww... some areas near the coasts had started evacuation in the morning. The latest update that I received was Hawaii observed waves as high as 7 feet or so... The port in Santa Cruz had been affected, boats and people gone missing into the Pacific Ocean... =(

I'm safe, no worries. I just feel really bad today. That's why I think I should keep this page in my diary.

Last saturday I dipped my hands into the Pacific Ocean, and I'll never forget how excited I was the first time to touch an icy cold ocean!!! Today it takes away life...

carmel-by-the-sea

Perhaps this is the start of 2012... I pray...

17 miles drive

I pray that the ocean water will always be this clear, and it will always be this calm... so that years or decades later, I can still come back here and recall the memories as it was just like yesterday.

cannery row

God bless..

我的孤单北半球 - Hong Kong Transit

Never expect that the sky is so gloomy in Hong Kong.
Like haze everywhere...?? Or is it fog?
Waiting at the transit area now. And a lady beside me is crying because she couldn't get a ticket to Nanchang from HK. Lots of China residents around, it feels like I'm in China more than in HK.
The world has changed a lot.
Now HKD has lost its value, RMB is well ahead, it was still just like yesterday when it's the other way round.
Same as USD... so does it indicate that I should do more shopping this round?

Stomach growling.. logging off to search for Hui Lau Shan dessert Mc Cafe.
Charging up, it's brunch time!
Heck.. another 12 hours flight to San Jose...
Arrgghhh....
So bored to fly alone.
