Another Beginning

I will talk about the title at the end of this post. Now I should update on my recent trip to the Fragrant Port also know as the Pearl of the Orient, Hong Kong.

Poor SO touch HK with a minor food poison. We suspected it was the breakfast he took. The first day was spent loitering along the streets alone while SO rested in the hotel. Anyways, he managed to pull himself up and accompanied me to Sammi Cheng's concert at the HK Coliseum. Just to share a clip of Sammi's rendition of I will Follow You. In fact the round platform is actually suspended real high. I guess the fans were actually quite worried that she might fall. The acapella at the end was great too!

Nothing beats attending Sammi's concert in HK. Even her concerts held in Singapore was only 75% of the full concert. Sad to know that, she's going to skip Singapore for this round of world tour.

Day 2 was spent shopping and eating, then more shopping and eating. The process just continues till we almost drop dead. It would have been more fruitful if not for the rainy weather. Anyways, on the third day, the sun came out and we made our way to Ocean Park. I think the picture on the left tells a better story of Another Beginning. Yep, he actually popped the question on the roller coaster. How innovative can he be? It was the least expected from him and it set me going dizzy even when the coaster wasn't that exhilarating. Thank goodness the ring wasn't lost while we were on the ride. Of course you may have guessed my answer to him. :)

Secondly, thank you thank you thank you for the Sammi Cheng clip! I'm a big fan and have seen every one of her movies released in the US, and just recently discovered that she's also a singer. I had no idea she has such a wonderful voice. Thanks so much!

Oooooh wow, how super romantic!!! hmmm, if I were just a bit less knitty-headed, I'd have guessed it from the "unusually sparkling glow" from your face on Fri ;o) But anyway, my heartiest congratulations to you both!

Hi! Well, that is exciting news! And what a story to tell your grandchildren (I like to take the long view).

Enjoyed the video and concert information. I did not know of Sammi - she is a wonderful singer and that must have been quite a concert.

Wait til you see the "anti-wool" yarns I have been collecting. This is such fun! - from your swap buddy

Also wanted to thank you again for your tip about removing the memory card from digital camera before going through the xray machine. Such an easy solution and I actually have pics from my trip to Singapore this time!
