One of the things that impresses me about Hong Kong is the speed at which people walk. My normally blistering pace is pretty much the norm here.

The concert I went to last night was held on the 4th floor of the YMCA in Tsim Sha Tsui. The concert's name was "Girl Power"; the headliner was a Gothic rock band from Taiwan, and the rest of the bands were local indie bands, spanning genres from punk rock, to melodic pop, to jam bands. I picked up a CD by the group Good Morning Gloria, which charmed me with a soulful rendition of The Girl From Ipanema. The girl at the CD table invited me to visit their indie record store up in Mongkok, Panic records.

Today I finally got up early enough to do the hike on Lamma Island, and it's raining. I changed from a swimsuit into jeans, but I'm still doing the hike.

I'm eating better. I even packed myself a lunch for the hike: a bottle of water, a box of juice, an apple, a bag of salt-and-vinegar chips, some chocolate Maria cookies and a Snickers. I will purchase a sandwich from 7-11 on the way.
