Aih, January has begun and so had our regular routine workdays. Yesterday I started going back to the gym again for the first time in 2 years and every inch of my body today aches so much I can barely pee straight.
I took almost a full minute just to put on my t-shirt this morning. Can barely lift my arms above my head now it's not even funny. So to distract myself, I am going to think HAPPY THOUGHTS, HAPPY MEMORIES AND HAPPY PLACES!!!!
Let it be said that Disneyland is the Happiest Place on Earth!
It really is!
It's been hardly a month since I was in Disneyland Hong Kong with Princess Audrey here
and I'm longing to go back again.. soo soo bad.
I don't know what it is about Disneyland. It's not just the rides.
Or the Christmas tree when I was there.
Or the very thoughtful D0nald tickets for the guys and Minnie tickets for the girls.
Or even the fake snow they had on Disneyland's Main Street USA.
But heck it's just that really happy happy atmosphere. If Disneyland was a country it would be the country with the lowest suicide rates (probably at 0), with no stress whatsoever and their asylums will be filled with people who don't suffer from mental illness or depression but suffer from excessive happiness (Yes I hear that even too much of a good thing can be bad).
The sad thing is that the park closes relatively early. Just right after dinner and after the fireworks display, everybody rushes to the exit ending the happy happy day.
By the time I passed the exit, the realization that I had just left Disneyland for the day had began to sink in and I started getting grumpy. And when I start getting grumpy I start cursing and swearing at everything (e.g. DAMN YOU GRASSHOPPER!!!)... something that if I did in Disneyland, I would get kicked out.
Yes it's true, part of the Rules & Regulations of Disneyland is that you're not allowed to curse or swear or say any bad words. Not even shit.
But my mood gets better by the time I get back to the lovely Disneyland Hotel and see the lovely beds.
Or the very cute-sy Disney-themed amenities.
After a quick shower, Princess and I went down to the hotel restaurant to have something to eat but also to later meet a couple of my good Hong Kong friends that I haven't seen in a while.
I ordered myself a typical Cheeseburger.
And they served it with tomato sauce that they made look like Mickey's ears.
And while waiting for my friends to come, Princess and I decided to do a little camwhoring on the dinner table, something that my parents definitely wouldn't have allowed me to do growing up.
In fact I could almost see all the families around us looking over at us with their parents shaking their heads at our lack of table manners.
But ahh whatever... they probably weren't bloggers so they wouldn't have understood.
Finally my two Hong Kong friends and ex-coursemates came: Eddie and Timothy (Yes... I have a Hong Kong friend named Timothy too). After graduation, the both of them naturally took their economics degrees to go work in banks.
Timothy Siu (on the left) worked in London for 2 years after graduation but he's now at Cambridge University doing his Masters.
Eddie (on the right) on the other hand is working in Standard Chartered right in Hong Kong and seems to be loving his job.
I ended my night at Disneyland Hong Kong with many happy memories to keep from the day and the warmth you feel when you catch up with old friends you spent years with in another foreign country.
If you're asking me for a memorable and happy moment I've had since 12 months ago, it was in Disneyland Hong Kong.
Oh well... back to work now everybody... Tuesday blues!!!!
