Back in Town

Went to Hong Kong for a few days. Loved it. Very exciting place. Lots of things going on though I got bored of shopping. Didn't buy much. Not many good deals. I don't want to buy stuff just for the sake of buying. Only buy stuff if I really like it.

I mostly wanted to just get out of Singapore and a change of environment. Wasn't hot or humid there. Wore a light jacket most of the time. But there were a couple of really nice sunny days.

Everyone says it's polluted there, but I didn't notice it. My favorite food were the egg tarts. Yum! A little hard to find vegetarian food to eat. It was kind of disturbing walking through a street that had live chickens crammed into cages and slabs of meat hung on hooks. Really turned me off.

Service in shops was very good. They always says "Hello" and "Bye bye." But I don't like it when clerks follow me around the store. I feel like I can't shop if they are watching me too closely.

Will post pictures next time.

One Last Paper

Hee Haw! On my last paper. Sick of writing. Getting wiped out by staying home on weekends writing and editing papers. Should be done with the paper today! Leaving town tomorrow.

Already did some packing. Always travel light. Just a carryon since I am only going away for 4 nights. Looking forward to getting off of this island. Think I will go nuts if I don't.

Next step.....look for a new job in another country. Time to leave. Signed on to finish one more year, then my contract is done. So have a whole year to find a new job I like. Actually, the job isn't as important as the country.

Has to be some place that I think is fun and exciting. I am kind of bored of this place. It's easy to live here, but it's also kind of dull after a while.
