The Hong Kong Experience: Day 07
2014/12/29 @21h02 HK time
A.K.A. Sick Day
Whelp, the Big Guy Upstairs rested after a week, so who am I to argue?
Also, I caught a stomach bug. The trade off? The street food was delicious.
Despite the excruciating pain of my insides being ripped out, I lost about five pounds, so yay.
Previously on The Hong Kong Experience…
The air up there. So much insight despite the lack of oxygen. Maybe that’s the only way we can get really philosophical. 😉
Analyzing the world from different perspectives can give us new ideas and breakthroughs.
On the seventh day of Christmas–vacay–my stomach said to me,
“FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.”
(Well, not really. It felt more like a velociraptor screeching while doing the Macarena in my gut.)
And the adventure continues…
You’d think this day of convalescence was uneventful but tell that to the hotel bathroom. Yes, TMI, but commiserate with me here. Pretty much all of us has had this unpleasant experience before. Let’s just say it keeps the balance in the Force. 😀
Anyhoo, since there’s is nothing new to report today, I thought I’d put up some photos of the trip so far (including that lovely photo of the t-shirt seen at a mall a few days ago).
I noticed something from this and a previous visit to a history museum.
The Royal Armouries Display, The White Tower, The Tower of LondonAugust, 2008
The British Occupation Exhibit, The Hong Kong Museum of History
It seems that antiquated British ordnance and I have a sordid relationship.
I think I had some kind of idea of where this post was going, but if I’m being honest, my current, erm, predicament, has taken control of my faculties.
However, considering the post I just wrote yesterday, I won’t let distractions–of any kind–prevent me from fuelling my creative outlet.
Since I don’t partake in live television back home, seeing what they broadcast locally is a bit of an indulgence. I miss the days of binge-watching shows on Nat Geo or Discovery, and while the types of shows on these channels have changed over the years, there are still several good ones that get the gears turning in my brain for a stockpile of possible story ideas. There’s also been a treasure trove of pictures off the interwebs that provide the perfect story prompt.
The upside of all these new distractions is that they keep me focused on what I love to do while keeping me sane during the battle of the stomach bug.
I’ll pool all the story ideas together and perhaps present them for a vote on what project to tackle for my upcoming Short Fiction and Screenwriting classes.
So, the uneventful day yielded some positive results, after all. 🙂
Until next time…
