Weekend encounters

Wooo, finally the weekends are here; i finally got a chance to sleep in after last weekends' flight to SH. I turned off my blackberry (finally) and was on a mission to escape work just for a day - it's been busy, and political now that there's more exposure for my new role. I chatted with my family on MSN and walked to the local mall district around here for food. It was freakin hot and humid; however, I got a picture of the local mall when I asked a girl to take a pic of me. She thought I was asking her out and said: 'haw ar, wo men yee chei she kai shin'... (let's go happy together), ha ha; it took me a whlie to persude her I only wanted a photo (on the left) :p Another thing I noticed is that why the ppl are so rude here; cuz the environment is like crap, it's sooo x100 hot and the envrionment is pretty bad with the air/noise pollution and packed ppl/traffic everywhere. There was also a huge storm today, I waited at the side of a building to avoid the rain, there's a nice girl and guy who were chatting with me so the 30min wait for the rain to stop wasn't too bad. I did see somthing funny tho; there was this very elegant girl with high heels walking, then slipped and fell into a pool of water (ouch!); I wanted to go help her, but after like 0.57s she picked herself up along with her soaked see-thru clothes and continued walking like nuthing happend at all. In another side corner; another hot girl got covered in mud (i'm serious!) after a bus splashed water onto her... ha ha, no wonder people are rude and look pissed everywhere. As the rain settled down, the air was finally breathable... for maybe 5mins max. I also went to the local supermarket to get a bunch of stuff for my new apartment as i'm going to move in next week, it was like another workout as i was carrying an iron, water boiler, mop, and lots of other stuff (i miss my car man) Anyways, I'm off to gym again to work off my stress and fat from this week. Thanks for everyone who's leaving comments ;) I'm sorry I can't leave any messages if your sites have word verification on~ An oh yeah; Germany definately bribed the ref when they played Argentina who outclased them tenfold.

haha. man. The lifestyle u described in SH sounds so familiar, doesnt that remind of life in HK? Same crowded, polluted city where ppl live their tense life chasing money with bad attitudes...haha

Your life in SH is very interesting, particularly the girl encounter stories. You only pay attention to the girls passed by!! Nothing interesting about the guys? Is the sentence 'go happy together' written in Mandarin? Pronunciation in Cantonese doesn't make sense! I guess it must be Mandarin

可可 said...

Yea! Agree with Akaie. You only pay attention to the girls!? And esp the ones who have 'see thru clothes', and 'hot looking girls'. (Are SH guys good looking? :P)

Ha ha, I can only speak lousy mandarin, and since my colleages are reluctant to even attempt english, so my lousy pronounciation is the only line of communication here. Sh guys are dark, personally I like a healthy tan but since the environments here is kinda bad, all of them have like an overburnt-from-smog'n-sun colour... Gosh, I hope i wun become like that (I've always played bball in TO and like the healthy glow of tan in Toronto, but definately not here!). Hoho, Portugal lost to Zidane :p mehehehe~
