Post lunch I had to go home and get ready for work. Boo. I get to work, load the van with Greg and our helper of the day, Vivian, and we're off. We end up hitting more traffic than anticipated, so I'm left on the side of the road with 3 boxes of wine destined for an art gallery, while Greg and Vivian head to our event. I get a taxi and 30 minutes and a lot of looping through Sheung Wan and Central, and finally I make it to the gallery where I have to cart these boxes up a hill, up a floor, in my new dress. Then it was back in the taxi:
Me: 'Do you know Park View in Tai Tam?"
Cab Driver: "Oh yeah, no problem."
Flash forward 40 minutes later and we pull into Pacific Place in Stanley. No bueno, dude. I get Vivian, who speaks Chinese, on the phone and she clears it up. We drive alll around the island again and finally 2 hours after I got to work, I got to our event.
To top it off, there's 4 of us working the event and 3 attending. ha more for us I guess. I talked to the guests that were there, made friends with a woman from Texas, and then it was just the HOFWs, tennis pro, and one guy from the tennis match and we just sat around drinking wine, then beer, then onto Prosecco. Ohhhh it was the Prosecco and the lack of dinner that did me in!! By the time we left at 9:30 I was pretty well on my way. I met Paul over at Kina's who were also there will Will and Sarah, our English friends. hhaah yeah, did not have a sip of alcohol there, and come 12 everyone called it a night.
Of course 7am Sunday rolls around and I'm WIDE awake. Got to love that. Paul and I took it as a sign that we should not do anything all day. So we didn't. We watched TV, at one point walked down stairs to get supplies to make pesto, and the immediately returned to the comfort of our couch.
In other news, our roommate Christy informed us that she will be moving out to Sai Kung June 3rd. Wooohooo, apartment to ourselves until the end of July!! I mean....we'll miss you Christy.....
