Back to normal

Oh man, so after a total chaotic last few weeks, I finally find myself drawing the line and deciding, enough is enough. I've eaten enough junk food, skipped enough routines and also missed enough workouts.
So hopefully starting from today, I pick up my routines again and get back on track so by the end of 2017, my life and all my systems are back on track.

But speaking of systems. I got me a Google Home and man it's a heck of a lot of fun! The fact that we're not in USA means a few features are difficult to set up or missing but otherwise, it's made my life a lot easier, especially since I could finally connect it to all my smart devices etc.
Now I know a lot of you may think oh man, there goes your privacy...yes, I agree there's that risk, but honestly, my life is pretty damn bland that chances are any marketing team is going to think "yeah, he's not our target demographic...

So how have things been? I have to say, the weather turning cooler is absolutely awesome, but my clothes starting to get tight for me is not. It's hilarious watching certain clothes I normally wear suddenly fit....differently. The craziest thing is exactly 1 year ago, I was in the best shape of my life lol.

Ah well, so much can happen in a year's time. Anyway, if you haven't noticed, everywhere in HK is starting to get Christmas-festive...we just finished halloween so the next big consumer festival is christmas and people are getting ready for everything.

So if for some reason I get side tracked, fall of my systems or simply go nuts, Merry Christmas and I hope the last quarter of the year is awesome for you.

Until then, enjoy!

You’re not worried it is spying on you mate?

That's the thing....there's really nothing much worth spying. Like if you followed me for a day, you'd realize, my life is pretty damn mundane and straight. Not even fit for spying lol

If there's anything I've learnt, all good witty comedians have not lived normal lives. It's a shame that some of the leading US comedians crack lame sex jokes which sells. I love British humour, it's the mother of true humour: sarcasm. So it makes sense why Indians, HKers, Malaysians, Singaporeans, Australians and even Canadians have great humour, the founding humour style is British humour!

All the shitty jokes I get come from free shows, including church. Some of the lamest jokes get cracked there and people laugh, because their sense of humour is just... umm.. well normal!

Since coming out of hospital, I've needed to see specialists, two specialist psychologists, now a nutritionist and even more lined up. I think if you followed my life, you'd find it was extremely weird... maybe because I am weird ! HA!

Clothes getting tight? Are you tight-ass? haha, well I have the opposite problem, my clothes don't fit me. Don't buy any ok? Come to Sydney and see what fits you, I have so many clothes that would just be shredded if I put them in a clothing bin here in Sydney.

Well as they say, comedy = tragedy + time.
If you had a great life, chances are you wouldn't be inclined to try to find the humorous angle of it.. it's in bad times that I guess many try to find ways to convince themselves it's not as bad as it seems...
like me, I prefer to make a joke and laugh at the whole situation rather than judge and point fingers. I mean, I acknowledge what is going on isn't ideal but I also realize I could either let it bug me or just accept that that's the case :P

But I personally like American humor more than British humor...heck, comedy is like music, everyone's got a different taste and different reassoning to like it. It does get annoying when you see people laugh at lame hacky jokes while you're struggling to craft a high quality one.. but just like the pianist who spends hours working at his/her craft has to acknowledge the chance of him/her being more popular than Justin Beiber is extremely slim, at the end of the day, if you can look in the mirror and be content with what you make of yourself, it's all good.

And as for clothes, ahaha ok dude, when I'm down there I'll come to your private garage sale. No idea what shape I'll be by then though:P

haha no garage sale, I don't sell things to people. I've been gifted so much at my new house I haven't spent a cent on appliances, furniture and even clothes! I spend money on food and transport now... petrol kills, that's if you drive a car!

ahaha yep, it's good to have people gift you stuff, as long as it's the right stuff you want :)
