Lockdown in Hong Kong

     

2020-2021 are among the roughest years in the 21st century with COVID pandemic impacting all livelihoods around the world. Yet I am thankful that the adverse effect on me is minimal except that I had cancelled all my trips. On the bright side, I have been spending more time with family and friends in Hong Kong. Life's satisfaction and quality triump.


I mainly spend my times in a remote island of Hong Kong where my ancestry roots, staying away from the city and crowd. It is a special view for me as the sun is setting at where my ancestors rest.


My lockdown activities include hiking and walking along the beach with Tino

My social life has reduced to minimal, yet had my birthday gathering at an exquisite place

The firm I work for relocated to a smaller office, but gladly remained in a central area of Hong Kong

I'm thankful to have remained employed. It's an art to keep calm and carry on

Once gym opens, my daily activities include maintaining a healthy and balanced body

Despite the lockdown, I still celebrate birthdays for my family members

Body building in progress. I'm challenging to evolve from a twink into a muscle-lean man.

I had my first every staycation and enjoyed fancy meals while hotels are in promotions

I had a birthday gathering at Chris's residence at Hong Kong Peak along with a few of my friends

Of course I dressed formally for my birthday and the occasion. Based on my family's artefact, Chris suggested that my ancestor was a noble too

He collects over 2,000 Chinese garments and textiles including an emperor's gown, which was exhibiting in a museum in Singapore at the time

I imagined myself spending a night at the Louvre or the Imperial Palace

Tino had no physical school for 3 months due to the COVID 4th wave in HK, so...

I've grown to be at peace with the past, myself and friends around me. Hope I am becoming a better person
