End of February

I found this Japanese restaurant that does 40% off their set dinner menu after 9:30pm. This works out very well for me because I usually go to the gym at around 7pm on Saturdays. On the weekend, I like to head out to the one in TST because their equipment is newer and the air circulation is better. The only downside about going on a weekend night is that there are too many personal trainers prawling around with nothing to do. I can't just go and experiment with the equipment because they're bound to come over to "help" me. Anyway, this Japanese place is pretty good. The price is decent after the discount. You get miso soup, kimchi, steamed egg, along with your choice of the rice with different kinds of sashimi toppings. I had a spicy salmon thing last night and it was really good. What am I going to do when I go back to the States and I have to make an effort to go find sashimi??

Last week was another crazy week at the office. I was just really tired by the end of the week and was not feeling very productive. It takes so much energy to keep track of what's going on when there are multiple things happening. I'm always trying to figure out what I owe other people and whether or not I'm the one holding up everyone's work.

I need to start clearing my place of the food that I've stockpiled. For example, I have Milo and this milk powder mix that I've stopped drinking. I have all kinds of coffee beans and tea. I even have flour. This stuff all needs to go before I move. I think it will be fairly affordable to hire a moving van and people to move my stuff. But it would just be such a waste of energy and effort to be packing away a box of crackers or something like that. I have a much better idea of what I want, now that I have a better idea of what HK has to offer. There's a part of the New Territories where you can get a 700 sq. ft, 3 bedrooms, for $3,000 HKD a month! That would be amazing. But it's way too far away. And I don't really want 3 bedrooms.

Didn't managed to go hiking this weekend. Maybe next weekend I will hike over the mountains to Shatin. One of my former coworkers asked me what my career plan was. Need to take advantage of everything that HK has to offer in case this whole thing is cut short very quickly. Things seem to happen very fast here.

yes, definitely take advantage of your time and explore HK! People were always telling me in France that it was good I knew I was there for a specific length of time so I would go out and explore the country, or else I'd probably procrastinate thinking I had plenty of time!
