I miss it.
I hadn’t left SoCal for a couple years and this trip not too long ago was seriously a big deal for me. I know now that Taiwan isn’t where I want to be, for sure. It’s beautiful, but because I hadn’t set foot there since I was 2 until now, it’s a completely foreign land to me. It’s also not as dense/active as Hong Kong, which is where I’m more used to and familiar with.
Sometimes I really wonder if I really want to go and live/work there. And why.
I can’t tell if it’s because I want to start over and leave all this shit behind in CA, in the U.S. or if it’s because I genuinely love the country city. Or if it’s just because when I land, at least one person is smiling and happy to see me.
Of course friends make a difference but coming back to CA, no family was around.
I guess I just answered my own thoughts.
It’s always been about family.
Remarkable scenes in Hong Kong today as people march for democracy. Today is the 17th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong back to Chinese rule.

Hong Kong’s human battery hens
Claustrophobic images show how slum families squeeze their lives into the tiniest apartments.
Someone caught a Hawksbill sea turtle and asked a Chinese restaurant to cook it but the owner purchased the sea turtle instead. The owner planned to release it but later found out it is in the list of critically endangered species and called the police to collect it.
It is healthy and now sent to Ocean park for further inspection. Hopefully it will be released near their habitat.
Its shell is popular for making jewel box and other handicrafts but is now banned from doing so.
