Life is Good

Life gives us a lot of blows and punches. Just like the recent Pacquiao-Horn fight, life gives us a lot of surprises- some good, some bad. 

There are so times I complain about life - why, despite working hard, we still have financial difficulties, why misunderstandings in relationships still arise, why traffic is terrible, all those mundane questions about life.

Then, an unexpectedly as life's blows, I get bowled over by simple but meaningful acts of love like the one below, when I got inside our family vehicle on my way to work.

Ahh, life is good, after all...

Things I liked in Hong Kong

Here are five things I liked in Hongkong (aside from Disneyland and Ocean Park):

1. The clean streets and the strip of designer shops along Tsim Tsa Tsui

2. The dog litter box (I don't know what it's called)

3. The fresh fruits that are very cheap. The strawberries were around P180 per kilo. The blush pears were around P100 per kilo.

4. The weather! It's not so hot and humid. When we went there around March, there was still fog. Imagine Tagaytay weather.

 5. Its Cultural Centre which is walking distance from the Space Museum and Art Museum
