Besides the concert organization itself, Jennifer and I really enjoyed ourselves. At the time, Jennifer's energy was like a decreasing exponential graph; I wasn't sure if the concert dragged too long for her (especially since she wasn't as big of a Highlight fan as I was and can't understand any Korean) or if the jet lag was getting to her. At one point, I was really worried that she was getting frustrated and was about to be upset with me. I mean, the concert was almost 4 hours long! But..... I'll let her tell you her side of the story next week.
One of my favorite moments with Jennifer was afternoon tea at Sheraton Hong Kong. It combined my love for food and conversation in one. It's moments like this that I realize both Jennifer and I travel best when we are relaxed and happily fed. Jennifer dislikes the rush of going to touristy places just to check them off a list, and prefers finding one or two less crowded places that showcase the charm of a location. As for me, I think I try to make the atmosphere as enjoyable for people on trips, so if others are happy, I'm usually happy. I do usually have a short list of 3-4 things that I want to check off the list, but other than that, I really like discovering cute little cafes or shops. Bonus points if I manage to have a good conversation with a shop owner!
Jennifer left Hong Kong after five days to prepare for her semester abroad in Edinburgh while I stayed in the city for another week. Without the need to play host, I was really glad that I was able to spend some quality time with family, whether it's just having a meal together, joking around while shopping, or sitting down chatting somewhere. (Maybe I should just tell my family to take me to cute cafes next time for chatting :D )
"Wow. I'm so blessed to be surrounded by these people in my life."
That's how I feel whenever I'm with family.
