Early this morning, Joni went into my room and told me that there was also no school today. Since I have already waken, I decided to go down to the kitchen to lay my gifts on the table.

This is the bouquet I got for Joni and the brown package is the thermo flask I got from Starbucks.

I was surprised to see my name on one of the cards and there were some gifts on and under it too.

Large stores in Georgetown are flooded with Valentine ambience. You see all the flowers, chocolate, balloons, cards and gifts being placed near all the cashiers.

On 13 February, the weather in the North started turning bad. The road was covered with ice and there was no school. My host dad, Vicky and I went to pick up some Valentine’s gifts for my host mum, Joni. I got her a thermo flask from Starbucks and a bouquet. I also bought a Celtic Woman CD for Dale. We then headed home, hid our gifts. We had a plan – wake up early before Joni tomorrow morning and put all our gifts on the kitchen table to give her a surprise!

In the afternoon, the host of my colleague, Patty, drove us to have a buffet lunch at Golden Corral and then go shopping. She took us to a shop called ‘HK Market’. It has nothing to do with Hong Kong. The owner isn’t a hongkonger, neither are the customers I saw there. The store is something like a HK grocery but all the goods are from China.

Patty then drove us to Sam’s Club.

It’s a warehouse kind of store. It sells food, snacks and stationary in large quantities, and electrical appliances.

My colleagues and I were very happy about the place because we could get souvenirs for our students.

Arrived at 5:30 pm.

I had to take 3 flights to reach my destination: the first one from HK to Tokyo, the second from Tokyo to Detroit and the last from Detroit to Lexington. The flights took 4 hours, 11 hours and 1 hour respectively.

We had two hours before we took the flight to Detroit. We decided to take our lunch before we got on board. The students chose McDonald’s. It costs about HK$38 for a set.

Haven't written anything for two months.  Still remember I told myself to keep posting at least ONCE a week but I just couldn't live up to my promise!

What was I doing in these 2 months?  Quite a lot.  Though I tried to play or simply enjoy my time by doing nothing at all, school stuff still occupied 3 quarters of my time.

I finally see the silver lining of the clouds.  My Form 7 classes will be gone after the Lunar New Year holiday and I am leaving for a business trip this Saturday!
