Let's set sail!

Ahoy matey! So this blog entry comes to you in the middle of the ocean! I'm onboard a cruise ship and ta-da, I came in yesterday and already did my show! I was this close to being able to disembark immediately and basically stay in Hong Kong but the cruise director decided let's have a bit more comedy! So I'll be doing another set later on the cruise ship. Heck, I get to enjoy the sound of the ocean at least while typing this! So that's pretty cool!

How is everyone? How has your week been? I've been traveling so much, I'm actually ready to just stay put in my room and on land. After I return to Hong Kong, I have approximately 2 weeks before I head out to Melbourne for a month for the comedy festival there! Super excited about it but not really looking forward to the overnight flight I have to take to get to Australia. Man I hate red eye flights, somehow I just crash and burn hard when I lack one night's sleep. My kryptonite!

So I've started watching this show called Stranger Things on Netflix and very, very cool! I love this crazy stuff with a mix of horror and madness...reminds me of all the Stephen King books I read growing up. Man I love those books, I've forgotten half of the details but still remember the general story line.

Otherwise, I'm trying to get myself back on track with my fitness regime. After being in India for 2 weeks and experiencing a food coma 3 times a day after 3 meals a day, I'm ready to get my life back on track.

Basically, in 2 months' time, once I'm back in Hong Kong and May arrives, I can finally "enjoy" 2018. Yes, 5 months into the year is when my 2018 actually begins.

However, I've got a whole bunch of stuff lined up for 2018 comedy-wise and I can't wait to execute them. It's going to be yet another roller coaster ride of doing new stuff, figuring things out, running around and border-line losing my mind, but the cool tihng is, just like the Laugh Festival we had last year, once we do it, then it sets a blue print for the future and opens up a lot of new doors for the wohle comedy scene in Hong Kong and the rest of Asia.

Anyway, the wifi on this ship may be free but it's crazy slow! So I have to stay calm while I'm working and basically try to work while I load other pages lol... crazy multi-tasking so I can make the most of whatever bandwidth I get. Man I wish my home internet that is lightning fast. I guess it's times like these that you become extra grateful for whatever you have. When people come to my place and see my room and go "man it's tiny", all I can think is "trust me, this is just right for me". Heck, if you gave me a massive room I'd actually be less satisfied, simply because I love the idea that every thing is like 1 step away from me and I have to be extra efficient in the way I organize myself not because I love to be efficient bugt I don't have much room for wastage :P At least having a tiny room and no space has stopped me from buying any more toys! Win!

Anyway, going to go get my dinner before catching the show at the theater tonight, it's a world-class musical act so I hope I gain some extra culture and sophistication :P
