16 hours on a plane, I didn't know that existed. I have some pictures, but I need to get at a computer that reads my memory card so it may not be until I get to Shanghai at dad's place or Manila. I've started the whatever high socks. The toe up experience is not so bad. Also, I was impressed that I was able to look up this website on my phone to take down the rest of the toe up socks instructions.
So, I didn't sleep much Friday night. 20 minute naps here or there. I think I've managed to adjust over the jetlag pretty easily even if I did go to sleep at 3 in the morning (local time). JFK wasn't all that exciting but I LOVE the Hong Kong airport. It is reputed to have the best shopping of all the airports (though I can't afford anything, even without all the yarn/beads expenditures), but even better? Their food court serves bowls of noodles in soup...the Asian kinda...that's just oh so nice after a long plane ride. And basically other Chinese fare for cheap. It would've been a nice time to have been able to say "Dad, I need money" but no dad, so I charged my food since I have no idea what currency I'm supposed to be using in the Hong Kong airport. Hong Kong currency for one, but I'm not sure if they accept others.
Arrived at my grandmother's and she's cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Walk in the door, here eat some cakey snacks. But I ate in Hong Kong. Well, here eat some cakey snacks. Okay, so does anyone still have any questions why I eat?
I am so glad I brought some workout clothes, so at the very latest, I can go work out in Manila before reporting for work on Monday. I did promise the team that so they can start feeding me as well.
I had expected only to see 2 cousins, both younger than me. But it turns out that my other cousin who is currently serving his mandatory military service is home for the weekend so I got to see him. Then I was informed that my other cousin on my father's side that I haven't seen in 10 years is actually here on business as well. So wow, al the cousins in one visit.
Food is smelling really good in the kitchen and grandma hasn't noticed that I've stopped eating...yet.
Also, the Anna Socks are almost done! I hope to finish them up today. I'm also amazed at sock yarn that's hand dyed. I started in on the Puck's Mischief and the coloring of the sock was not what I had expected when I looked at the skein, not that it's a bad thing. Though I'mthinking now, maybe I should just leave them all skeined up to look at!
