Even in this time, people are denying ones brother and sister, just because they’re different. Either it be skin colour, beliefs, sexuality etc.
Some people are throwing hatred around as if they’ve earned the right to. Hatred only breeds more hatred. In order to truly understand someone is to walk in their shoes or beside them on their journey in life.
So how can some people be able to simply judge and put others down when they have never walked in their shoes or even touched on their path? People that hate tend to have insecurities with themselves. Humans are not perfect so who are you to judge assuming you are?
People need to be more accepting in life, we are all the same no matter how you see it. We are born the same way, made the same way, and we all are guaranteed to die. So we all share the same existence, is it not better to be accepting than holding onto hatred that will consume you?
That person you hate on one day might end up saving your life.
Excuse their behaviour, even if you feel like you can’t because one day they will realise the truth and that is society has no room for them. It gets better in time even if you feel like you can’t go on because each day is too hard. But each day is a new day. Each day a mind changes and becomes accepting. Just wait and soon even the hater will be an accepter.

Life is going to throw so much at you and it’s up to you on how much you can catch. If you keep catching soon enough you will be weighed down and suppressed with so much going on. You got to throw back at life in order to gain what you want in it. Aim for something and throw at it and make sure you hit the target. In order for you to be what you want to be you need to take control and start throwing back at life. Show life you will be the pitcher and that you have control.
Even the brave become scared. The strong become weak.
We all experience this in our lives and it’s an experience which we can use to better ourselves as a character and person. Learn from the misfortunes in your life in order to reach a higher goal and better yourself.
Since coming back to London I don’t feel like the person I was when I left. I don’t know what it is but it almost feels like something is missing in my life. *sigh*
What is it I don’t know but I honestly feel like it’s something important. I mean I act the same, look the same but don’t entirely feel the same. This may sound stupid in a way or silly but it honestly been affecting me in a very big way. I honestly just want what I’m missing back and I pray that I get it back. Maybe it got left in Hong Kong, this may sound weird because I’m not speaking of an actual object it seems to be much more spiritual. I feel like a actual piece of me is missing. I just pray and hope I get what I am missing back. This isn’t the person I was 2 months ago *sigh*. It’s as if someone has come in and reached in and took something and now it’s missing.
Maybe it is the regret that I hold for not being able to do everything I wanted to do and letting people down while I was in Hong Kong due to my illness. I am not sure.
While I was in Hong Kong I truely enjoyed it. But obviously when I was ill I just wanted to come back home. I totally lost the gratefulness I should of had while being in Hong Kong and how such a nice place it actually is. Yeh it did have it’s downfalls but they can be over looked because it’s truly my home.
After coming back home I’ve realised what I’ve been missing. The constant busy life is what I love. I feel now where I live is way too quiet. Now I feel like I’m being ungrateful towards this place.
Also I didn’t know I’d miss someone so much. Just thinking back on the times we spoke on the phone it just seems like a long dream. I wonder how she’s doing and what she’s been up to? I hope she doesn’t hate Hong Kong too much. I know she really want’s to leave Hong Kong and come to England =). I feel like an idiot for not spending my last day with her to say goodbye. Or taking any pictures. Now I feel like I don’t have anything to remind me of what was there. I honestly didn’t think someone like myself would be so caught up with someone. I wonder if she thinks about me as much as I think about her.
I made a promise to her I’d see her again soon and that I would make lots of money here and move over and let her stay with me. lol. I felt like I was given something really special and I totally forgot my time there was limited and treated it as if I had all the time in the world. I regret not treating time more seriously while I was there. I guess I’ll put up with the pain till I see her again.
Hong Kong right now seems like a very detailed dream. Waking up in my own bed was a weird experience lol. Hong Kong was so fun apart from being ill of course but that in itself taught me a major lesson.
However the title goes for someone I met out there. We have so much in common and it seemed perfect. I’m glad I can see everyone again but I wont be seeing her again for a good while which is heart aching. I wish we had more time together…
When she cried on the phone to me when I left that made my heart ache… *sigh*
Noticed I have a few days left before I head back to the UK. Wow how 5 weeks can go so quickly. Tbh I don’t want to go back so early but I guess it can’t be helped. Was thinking of extending my ticket but no matter how many clubbing events are here won’t be the same without my boys and girls back at home lol. Plus I’ll be missing out on a lot.
Hong Kong has been fun and cheap! Will definitely come back again.
Well this week has been horrible. I’ve been ill for awhile now and tbh I can’t remember what it was like to be normal lol. I’ve seen Doctors and they told me different things, I went to the hospital and they told me another. This week has just been consisting of me sitting indoors taking medicines. Just not what I planned for a holiday. I don’t know what is wrong with me tbh.
However the best news I heard all week was today when I saw that my results allowed me to carry onto next year! Wooo fun times! Hopefully this is a signal to recovery!
Plus this illness is just making me want to go home.
For the past week I’ve been ill and apparently according to the Doctor I have an Ear infection… eww…
It’s the most annoying thing right now to have on holiday I wouldn’t care if I had it in England since I can just rest and chill as long as I wanted. However this ear infection has been so aggrovating because I can’t do what I want to do while I’m here. Had to miss a clubbing event in Hong Kong because of it FFS!
Also it’s just so annoying when I eat and I feel dizzy and sick and want to throw up. I feel balemic! lol Which hopefully I am not. Plus I haven’t been able to go to the gym for a week now because of it. My life has stopped just for this stupid infection.
My ideal world is the combination of both Hong Kong and London. I admit taking this long of a holiday has made me miss London quite a bit to my surprise lol. But equally I’m loving Hong Kong and in a way don’t want to come back but at the same time I do because of my friends at home and the lives I’d miss out if I stayed here.
I am a person who belongs in two places. Also being in Hong Kong has let me think about what I want in life when I’m older I guess. Everyone in Hong Kong so far seems to be so welcoming especially the fact my Chinese is terrible. First day I touched down I went to eat and I had no money on me. Told the lady I had no money and I cannot read chinese and I promised her I would bring money down to eat. With which she replied I don’t normally trust people who say that but I trust you. (Obviously I paid her).
I think being in Hong Kong has really let me be in touch with my cantonese side compared to being in England obviously. I’m much more comfortable talking in cantonese now before when I was so shy speaking it because it wasn’t great at all. I just thought that people would just simpley laugh at me but being here people don’t seem to care. Some people think its cute too yay. XD
In all honesty I’m looking forward to coming back to London but regreting leaving Hong Kong again since I don’t know when the next time I will be back again.
Hong Kong is sooo fun and I can see myself totally living here when I’m older or even now. I feel at home here and I tend to fit in here pretty well except for the odd look from passer bys. Hong Kong to me is just a much more busier London where it actually doesn’t sleep.
However I miss England and all my friends there, I’m torn between two worlds. Hong Kong is the home away from Home I guess :D
Met my cousins again for the first time in 10 years ! I can confidentially say that it has been way too long since I last saw them. My auntie said to me “Wave call him over !” and I replied “Who? I don’t see him”. To my surprise my cousin was standing 100m away from me which I did no recognise. I thought he was a total stranger haha.
Furthermore my grandma in Hong Kong has gotten old now and forgotten people even my auntie. She didn’t recognise me either and didn’t know who I was which was a bit upsetting but then again it has been 10 years now and things change and people get old I guess. I just wish I could turn back time and return to Hong Kong more often in the past so at least I could spend time with her when she had her memory and her strength. This has taught me to value life a lot and the people close and dear to me. It’s so easy to forget things I didn’t realise how easy it was to forget people… Especially those you loved and so important to you. I guess it can’t be helped but spend more time now with her.
Time spent wishing is time wasted. Going to do what is needed now then wishing what could of been done.
All I can say is “I’m sorry” for not being there more often.
So far it’s bloody humid but not too hot. The plane journey was the longest thing I have ever done sitting… almost puked LOL sad times for me. :(
Haven’t bought much yet just some sunglasses and couple of shoes, my auntie insisted I bought a pair of slippers to go out in geez I look so fobbish LOL. Aching from yesterday in the gym however the gym is kinda limited in weights and no bench sad times :(. The amounts of stares I got in the gym while I was in my tank top was ridic lol just because I was using the most heaviest dumbells they had as well… (35kgs) for chest and shoulders lool. O well.. at least I can safely say I’m the biggest guy around here so far everyone seems to be generically skinny… weird. The surprising thing is I’m also probably the most masculine guy too and I am not that masculine to begin with lol.
So far everythings been going great loving Hong Kong atm but I think people can blatently tell I’m not from here, ooo plus I made a new friend in a shoe shop wooo. Hopefully she can take me around this huge mall !
OMG and stuff is sooo cheap here! Except for cereal which was like wtf lol $68 for pack of cereal so its like 6pounds… wtf… But other than that things here are dirt cheap been eating like no tomorrow for like 1 -2 pound per meal!
"You yourself deserve as much as anyone in the entire universe your love and affection."
A lot of people seem to be unhappy with themselves in some way or another. In my eyes you should love yourself and love what you were given. Who cares if people think you’re vain as long as you’re happy the way you are the happier you’d be.
Learn to love yourself because you’re not going to be given a second body.
