The Star Ferry in Hong Kong

Again catching up from last week.  Anyway, my life this week is pretty much work, puppy sitting and missing my munchkins who are causing a riot in Perth.  My sister, Jenn, cousin, cousin-in-law, nephew and nieces took off for a holiday visit to my parents … while I’m here in Singapore.

Back to my thoughts on Hong Kong, I’m starting to realise if past lives worked for me, I must have been a fish.  I love water.  Just like my last post, the river in Shanghai was probably the biggest attraction for me.  And in Hong Kong, the Star Ferry is my most favourite thing to do.  Part of the reason why I usually stay in the TST area though my meetings are in HK – reason to jump on the ferry!!

There’s something about the 70cents ride between two extremely bustling city areas.  Feeling the breeze in your hair, the smell of the water mixed in with the engines of the boat, the slight rocking, they all come together in a strange comforting way for me.

Whether it’s at night or during the day, the ride never ceases to calm me.  Gives me that breather between meetings, the time to remember that I have much to be grateful for in this life.  The key now is learning how not to take it all for granted.  Anyone has advice on that?
