Out and about

Apologies for the lack of posting. The last few days have been thoroughly tiring and today is the first day in a while where I find myself being utterly lazy. It’s a strange, wonderful…and almost guilty feeling.

I’m in Hong Kong at the moment, on a “working vacation”. Despite the fact that there’s a typhoon (hence why I’m ensconced in my hotel room, typing this post out on my blackberry), it is remarkably relaxing to sit and watch the rain pelt outside the window.

Why am I sitting in a hotel watching the rain when I’m supposed to be on a “working” vacation? Well, I paid for my plane ticket (fairly inexpensive at 30,000 yen) and took a couple of personal days off. In addition, I visited the office yesterday and possibly this weekend to assist where I can. However, my room and board charges are covered, as are most of my meals – which would be the most expensive part of the trip anyway. I just feel that it’s very worth it, despite the typhoon, just to get away from things and relax.

More will be forthcoming later, though most pics won’t be uploaded until I get back on Monday and have access to a computer again!

    So glad you were able to do this. Just being away from the usual routine is relaxing in itself…the rain falling outside sounds very mellow. Just checked the weather forecast for HK…you’re going to have a very mellow few days! Hope it doesn’t affect your return flight.

    Hey, it’s good to hear you’re enjoying your Hong Kong vacation. I forgot that you were gonna be gone for a few days… lucky you =P

    Get plenty of rest since next weekend we’ll be walking around Yokohama and going to that sweet concert! (Although I can’t believe two months passed since we got the tix)

    I was really lucky actually – the times that I did want to go out, it stopped raining (just stayed cloudy) and the times that I was holed up, it rained quite a bit!

    Then for the return flight, I left in the early morning – and a level 8 typhoon (businesses closed) hit that evening!

    I’m back, and though still pretty tired, am looking forward to the walk around Yokohama and VGL 🙂

    Oh, and check your PS3 messages – I think someone sent you a friend request 😉
