Update from HK part 2

Sometimes when u have too much to say, u end up not knowing where to start and hence u seem to have nothing to talk about. Old friends... old blogs.

Came back from Shanghai last week. I guess the 2 things about shanghai is that it is very cold, and the traffic is horrendous. All in all, shanghai s very metropolitan... a true BIG city but with added "Chinese" extras- such as toddlers 'beggars' who literallty grab on to you, and people who spit (including very well dressed young ladies). I think the most memorable part was when we went to this pub in the 'trendy' xin tian di district (like the Shanghainese version on soho or lan kwai fong), there were really real;ly old men dancing and acting drunk. it was insanely funny.

Another intetresting aspect of the trip is going on a HK tour. i've never been on one b4, and whilst the idea of being involved repulses the aquarian in me, its amzing to share ur travel experiences with complete strangers. How u can pick up stuff abt other tour mates during the trip, and see ppl who u ordinary wouldnt associate with... and yet, not know their names. Havng said that, i dont think i will go on a tour again.

my days in Hk are soon over... i must buy some more stuff b4 i kleave for taiwan.

Good to hear your travels have been going well. I found your blog using the search term 'national puddle jumping' on google. Haha. I never thanked you for being a such a good host whilst I was in HK. Hopefully I can do the same for you when you decide on going to South Korea. Though you know other Koreans who would do that for you anyway.

All the best for the rest of your trip - hope 2005 is a good year for you!

P.s. I hope you didn't forget to buy the Lang Lang DVD =)
