1 year and a half
only been here for one day
but i don't really think i can live in this place for the rest of my life
i experienced culture shock yesterday night
i felt like i was fainting when i was crossing the street
i guess i am too used to the country life style in my little town in japan
don't get me wrong!
HK is a wonderful place with wonderful food!! (lots and cheap)
it's fun to travel and to visit friends
to make a living....hmm...still need to think about it...
anyways, the more important thing is
i finally got to meet my grandfather!!
(he is now 86)
i haven't seen him for 12 years!!
i was more excited than i imagined i would be
i feel blessed
i thank God for him
this morning we went for a walk together
he did tai-chi and some chinese sword exercise (it was pretty cool!!)
he told me stories when he was young
and we memorized Bible verses together while we were walking
i really do thank God for him

probably won't have chance to blog...
wish me a safe trip!
i will get to see my mom in HK
which is one of the most exciting thing!
i had a great weekend
lots of delicious food
lots of laughters
lots of spontaneous moments
exactly what i needed
today in church:
"He know your deeds."

it's a term to refer to what you are addicted recently
in terms of habit, fashion...etc..
anyways, my recent "boom" is
i now spend about at least 20 mins to 45 mins stretching before i sleep
it's a really relaxing period for me
i sleep better too
(well, i am generally a pretty good sleeper...)
my body is pretty non flexible
i can't even touch my toes (you know, when you stand straight and try to reach your toes with your fingers...yupe, i can't do that)
so...my goal for now is to at least reach my toes
not forcefuly but like naturally
all i want is a body that is a little more flexible
here is a pix of me stretching with my friend Megumi
(yupe! i was screaming in pain...)
she already has a pretty flexible body
to do the post that figure skater does when spinning (holding one of your leg with your hand...like swing your leg up backward and use your hand to hold it like above your head...know what i am talking about?)
i don't know what it calls (i am pretty sure there is a technical term for it)
i can't wait to she her goal being achieved!!
i will have my camera ready for that moment!
