Saturday night live!

OMFG, so it's Saturday night and I finally have a chance to sit in my room and just...well just do my own stuff without trying to cram stuff in.

I'm at a crossroads, do I watch a movie or play computer games tonight? I've actually been very good today and worked the whole day, accomplishing a whole bunch of stuff and now I don't know what I deserve. Ahah. Right now I'm edging on movie because video games means I'll need to plug my gamepad in and set things up....yes I'm feel extra lazy tonight mostly because I've been extra hardworking recently.

So how is everything with you all?
I've got 2 weeks before I head over to Melbourne for the comedy festival, and things are getting pretty hectic here because I really want to finish whatever I have on hand so I can go in peace. I'm super duper excited about all the food there! The last time I was there, it revolutionized the flavor of eggs and chicken for me, to the point I literally spend extra bucks just to enjoy Australian chicken here in Hong Kong (it might just be a psychological thing but somehow it tastes different!)

On another note, it's been a very fruitful last few days, gigs, projects and a whole lot of running around. I've had days where I spent as much time traveling as I did working and other days were just me going absolute bonkers trying to get stuff crammed in in time. The good thing is, tomorrow is Sunday and once I finish my weekly chores, I'll be able to properly sit down and....do my own stuff.

In the last few days, I had the honor of being featured twice on Apple Daily! Wahoo!
Here and here. One's about the venue where we have our comedy shows (it's a cafe/community) and the other is a profile about non-Chinese (mostly South Asians) in Hong Kong who consider themselves a Hong Konger.

As with anything in life, you'll always have a few haters, but it's understandable, everyone's got their opinion on things, but hey, I've learned to realize that at many times, you need to stop and listen to your gut and your heart and know your intention, then you won't need to worry about what people are accusing you of, since you know what you're objective really was.

Oh and did I tell you I've been doing this insane kettlebell circuit that totally smashed me the first time I tried it?
10 x kettlebell swings
10 x kettlebell snatch
10 x kettlebell front squat
10 x kettlebell clean + press
10 x kettlebell push ups
10 x kettlebell rows

The first time I did it, I used 2 x 12kg kettlebells and died by the end of 1st round ahah..
Now I'm able to go with 2 x 14kg kettlebells and struggle in the middle of round 2! Wahoo! Oh and when I come back from Melbourne I'll get back to my olympic lifting training again. I've been comparing my flexibility from a year ago and I've got to say, I was a tight weakling 365 days ago ahaha...at least for the basic things that I was struggling with.

Oh and I think this yoga thing I'm doing now has become a habit. It's not longer a new discovery but an understood part of my regime.

OK I'm rambling on and on now because my brain is thinking "so game or movie? Game or movie?!?!" I feel like a kid in a candy store where everything costs $1 and I only have, you guessed it, $1! Nooo!!!

Well enjoy the next 10 days and try something new for a change. Like use chopsticks with your left hand if you're right-handed and see if food tastes different? It's been fun doing some random stuff daily and getting back into my routine of just doing random stuff ...just because.

You play computer games? Time sink. Time lost. Time you will never get back.

Ahahah oddly enough you know a lot of my spacial/visualization skills came from all the hours I played Quake 2 as a kid. Like I'm able to visually see areas in my head quite well now because I used to memorize maps in the game :)

But yeah, too much of anything is no good. But at this point, it's more like a luxury than an addiction or a routine.
