Dizzy

My head is spinning!

I'm suffering from a bout of vertigo. It ain't fun. It keeps me from doing stuff I love to do (such as work out), even stuff I hate to do (like real work). I can't move around freely. It's like I'm in a prison.

My meds sort of help in easing the nausea, but they're making me groggy. Last night I slept for 11 hours!! That's too much!! Hey Mr. Bert E. Go, give me my old life back!

Hong Kong Day 1

The day started out like any first day of traveling. Lack of sleep, waiting in long ticket queues, terminal fees here and there, not to mention the flights that suck the energy out of you. That pretty much describes my voyage to Hong Kong today. I'm here in the Marco Polo where I'm booked. My mom is asleep, doubly tired of the day's events. She's wearing a funny looking set of pajamas.

This is Hong Kong's ginormous airport. It's so huge we had to catch a train going to the baggage claim area. LOL

Our room in the Marco Polo Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui. The beds are tiny.

Camwhoring while my mom checked out our bathroom.

For dinner, we ate at the Silvercord mall, which is very near our hotel. Their food court, located in the basement, had a dozen of establishments to choose from. We picked Mi-ne Sushi where we enjoyed their sushi carousel. Mi-ne is a do-it-yourself (DIY) restaurant. I'll review them in my food blog.

One of the things I made sure of is to taste HK's milk tea! In the middle of the food court they sold all sorts of drinks, including Black Tea with Milk and Tapioca (HK$12). It is the strongest milk tea I've tasted but I loved it! I told my tea addict friend Aileen that I'm having it for breakfast tomorrow. :)


Long day tomorrow. Gotta sleep!
