In percisely one month, Hong Kong will no longer be where I live. It will always be home but it will merely be a vacation whenever I come back- at least for the next five years. That’s a scary thought. Every day, as I walk through Hong Kong, watch as the skyline go by when I’m on the bus, I can’t help but think what it would be like when I leave.
Many of us have left and gone our own ways for the summer, saying good-bye doesn’t seem so bad when we know we will see each other during the summer. But the hard part is saying good-bye to Hong Kong. The skyline, the night-life, the hardest roads to drive on. Family, relatives, friends I have known for the past few years, friends I just met the last few months. I don’t know where or how to start saying my farewells.
I’m not exactly sure how I am feeling about it all, but I do know that this month is going to fly by. Especially because starting next week for the next three weeks, I will be busy during the day. Who-ever I meet up with, it might very well be the last time I will see you before I leave. I have to start thinking about packing, start thinking about whether I need to buy anything and just preparing in general- physically and mentally.
Having said that, I am still finding loads of time for myself and my friends. I have been meeting friends for lunch, coffee during the day, working out, dinner with the family, and possibly meeting more friends after dinner for a movie or a drink. I’m really enjoying what I do at the moment, trying to savor the good moments, make the most out of the best night life in Hong Kong.
I love Hong Kong. I wouldn’t have asked to grow up anywhere else.
I love my friends. You know who you are.
God’s been really challenging my thinking and my thoughts. But i am grateful for the friends that I could talk to about the challenges. He allows me to be scared and nervous one minute, then the next minute, I could feel his comfort through his words.
Not sure where else I’m going with this post….
