Oh. My. God. I have totally missed the blogging world! Sorry for the silence, but I am over here working and my time is not always my own, regardless of the hour! And to be honest, connecting to the Internet from China can be a total pain in the ass. In fact, I couldn't even connect to Blogger using a public connection. How strange is that? Access denied via the People's Republic of China!
Last I posted, I was in Hong Kong. I am here again and actually get the entire weekend off (I normally have appointments at least on Saturday if not both Saturday and Sunday)! Why? Because some Canadian brought the H1N1 virus into a town I was supposed to visit. As a result, the government would not allow foreigners to book hotels, so I had to rearrange my trip. I'm telling you, the Chinese are not messing around with this virus. Every where I go I have to fill out health forms telling them where I've been, where I'm going, contact info...it's exhausting. I get my temperature taken at every public transit portal. All these health officials who point a little thermometer gun at your head and then wave you through or pull you into quarantine. Nice.
At any rate, I'm in Hong Kong again for the weekend. I've got some fun stuff to blog about and will do that tomorrow. I actually have two friends in town from the states who I plan to meet up with as well. FUN!
Because I had to cancel my trip, the agent I was to work with took me out to a fabulous dinner in Hong Kong tonight. We then went back to see his new apartment. Holy cow! This photo of his dining room really doesn't do it justice, it's just gorgeous!
Steven (my agent) invited my out to the balcony to hang out while he smoked. Here's a cheesy (and blurry!) photo op of him. I've worked with him for about 10 years now. He's the best!
Last, but certainly not least, check out this amazing view from his 37th floor balcony. I have to admit, I had a little vertigo going on the closer to the railing I got! Their bedroom has the same view - two wall are all floor to ceiling windows! Could you even imaging living here?
Tomorrow, I promise I'll get back to bridal goodness. Sorry for the silence, but I have just been overwhelmed with business! Sometimes my job totally gets in the way of my blogging, y'know? How does the rest of the blogging community cope? :)
