Overseas Shopping Woes

Now I understand why Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg simplified their wardrobe. The decision of does this goes well with what does take up some processing power. Add to the modern day overseas shopping method for people of snapping a photo, waiting for acknowledgement of the model , back and fro with that zaps my strength even if I am just waiting around. #firstworldproblem

Out of SG to Hong Kong Day 1

Hong Kong is a trip my wife and i have booked months ago. It was just in time as a birthday trip for her. We just booked tickets and accommodations months ago. No concrete itinerary.

Had to take the shuttle bus from runway to arrival hall in the terminal building This terminal seems new and clean. The last time I came in, the immigration officer asked for my visa, or pay for a fine, which isn’t required for my country of origin. Just another method to line their own pocket. This time there wasn’t. My dad traveling together also remarked that the immigration asking for money has indeed gone down drastically . Its definitely a good thing. The immigration is one of the first locals […]
