Sushi To Celebrate The Handover

You'll notice that I didn't post anything about yesterday's 15th anniversary celebrations/protests of the Handover of Hong Kong to China.

I am just not equipped to do that and, frankly, those topics don't really affect my everyday life here. Not yet.

Don't get me wrong; I have opinions but I'd rather not share them for fear of getting hate (e)mail.

Hong Kong can do what she wants. I'm just an expat here either way. Brit rulers or Chinese ones, my situation will stay the same.

Saturday marked the 6-month point for me. I made it 6 months here. I did everything I wanted to do -- accomplished all the goals I had -- and I'm still here.

Again, don't feel like getting pensive on here.

My personal life is now far more interesting than anything I'm posting on this blog and, in all honesty, the days of barring my soul on here like I did before may be over. For the time being, at least.

That said, all those things in my personal life are going great -- too great to blog about!

I was in the city this weekend and I decided to splurge and have sushi. Sushi is cheap here, relatively speaking, but the $144HKD I spent on this meal is equal to about a week's worth of lunches during the work-week.

I went to the same branch of Itacho Sushi that I've visited on multiple trips to Hong Kong in the past.

Everything I ordered came from the $9HKD-per-piece menu -- including one piece that was only$5HKD -- less than $1USD!!! -- and there's shrimp, yellowfin tuna, scallops, bonito, and mackerel there...

Oysters!!!

Shrimp tempura...

This was some kind of smoked (?) fatty salmon...
