2016 part 2

Ooooooohhh yeah!! We're in the 2nd half of 2016!! Man I can't believe the year has just zoomed by. So much has happened in just the last week, and so much has progressed in the last 6 months.
The cool thing is, I'm still insanely in love with the DOOM OST, though after hearing it over and over again for so long, there are a few tracks that stand out, namely the BFG Division track, that was fantastic.

So in the last few days, I've seen myself visiting multiple schools daily, giving talks and different sharings and let me just say, man I am blown away by the range of schools there are. The different types of audiences and what they find funny. Like there have been mornings where I've been surprised by the students' interested in certain topics, and others where I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall trying to get one of my bitgs to hit and get a giggle. All in the life of a comedian. But man am I blessed.

I even got to go to Sapporro in Japan for an event and ate the absolute best Ramen I've had in my life at, go figure, their airport (they have a ramen street there! INSANE!)

The cool thing is, this whole week has been a very progressive week. I mean as much as I was literally borderline dying of lack of sleep, but it wasn't like my life was on hold, things still progressed. Speacking of progress, BREXIT. Oh man, has the pound sterling tumbled hard. I am lost if I should buy some GBP or just buy stuff on line using GBP and enjoy the crazy conversion rates...

Either way, probably wait and see, things are so mad there I don't feel that risky anyway.
By the way, I'm writing this on my lovely plane ride back to Hong Kong from Japan, man it's so refreshing taking a plane with movies on board, ahah I'm so used to budget airlines, my iPad is filled with stuff to watch, it's literally something I do automatically whenever I get on a plane. Anyway, instead of probably developing some weird joint defect from trying to type in my tiny little space (it's Hong Kong airlines, keyword being Hong Kong and thus space is a luxury), going to treat myself to a movie. Speaking of which, I treated myself to 3 softie ice creams in a span of 2 days and that is more than I've had in the last 2 years!

OK time to enjoy....ZOOTOPIA!

(PS. This was posted after I landed of course)

have you tried Singapore Airlines before? They spoil everyone: hot towels, all smiles and very attentive service! It's so different to CX service which is just like service from 7-11: get the meals done and shut the blinds and make everyone sleep on the daytime flight! The poor Singapore girls literally walk to their destination!

Yeah Singapore Airlines, I flew them once and man I was blown away...ahah then again I was jumping from budget airlines to SG airlines, so it was a cultural shock for me ahhaha.. but to be honest, I've flown budget so many times that any plane with even a TV screen or inflight meal included is luxury to me ahahah (a good way to unspoil myself)
