I arrived in Hung Hom station in Kowloon safely and uneventful, hailed a taxi, got myself to Viv and Ivan's place in Tiu Keng Leng, met Ivan and their apartment's lobby to have him greet me with a... "Your [bags] smell like China!". I was happy nonetheless to be in the company of my HK family!!
Ivan has always been a gracious host... he bought me lunch(snack), this yummy bun which I gobbled up quickly and made me his concoction of orange and grape juice = orange-ape?! It's really good!!
With my girls... Viv & Cat painting the town red while celebrating a weekend and more of Cat's birthday!
Here's the rest of the pictures from my camera... with a lot of birthday celebration going on and amazing rooftop views of Hong Kong Island and its colorful city skyline.

It's Halloween.... and I am down with the flu... in Guangzhou nonetheless on my final city stop in China. Trick or treat? Down with a bug... that's a definite trick for me!
Chengdu was pleasant, but rainy. And so far, Guangzhou has been nice with the warm weather - warm and humid enough for me that I opted to stay indoors! I have been pretty much in bed all this time, medicated, drinking lots of fluids (the OJ in this country ain't the real thing!) - praying to get through the last two fairs in a healthier state and also for my journey back to Hong Kong and back to New York.
I cannot wait for Sunday... after the final fair when I leave on the Guangzhou KCR East railway line heading to Hung Hom station in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Lotte Hotel Seoul
I arrived in Seoul okay... my Korean is NOT great at all next to saying hello and ordering what I would like to eat and that's about it.
A recap on my flights.... the worst leg was from Buffalo to Chicago. Talk about starting out bad... some DUMDUM spilled... no DUMP all his coffee on my lap! I was sleeping... and I YELPED and jumped out of my seat from his hot coffee... no change of pants (was so not thinking of having coffee dumped on me). The best part... the guy WAS NOT apologetic OFF the bat... I looked at him as he was wiping away his spilled coffee on his little tray thingy... then a soft sorry came out some 10 seconds later!! I was wearing one of those soft track pants thats totally ruined... with a humongous coffee stain which I attempted to rub out with club soda. No connecting airports... Chicago nor San Fancisco sells any pants of any kind... just tonnes of T-shirts. To hide the stain - I wrapped my red jacket around the "bad area". Talk about starting off great on my flight right?
The rest of the flight was pleasant... it was an 80 minutes ride from the airport to hotel. Some dignitary or minister or someone important from Mongolia is staying here for a meeting.. so very cool. They have no rooms for me with any great internet connection and SMOKING only... so i had them upgrade me since I initally booked and requested for non-smoking :P
I have had MANY people talk to me in Korean... talking about fitting in and all asians look alike. Hehehe....
Tomorrow is a rest day for me before work officially kicks in... so I am joining a full day tour around Seoul. Updates to be continued...
