The foremost reason we spend our Yuletide holidays in HK (aside from the fact that my sister now lives there) is the cold winter weather. I thrive in cold climate. I can go around with my hair down and not tie it in a ponytail as is my SOP here in Pinas. I don't mind walking far distances as long as there are pavements to safely walk on and I don't sweat up a storm. I can take public transport without perspiring buckets and not feel tired once I reach my destination. Lastly, I can channel my inner fashionista vibe and roam around town looking fabulous, if I may say so myself.
So this current spell of 'cold' climate enveloping the Metro is a much welcome treat for me. The temperatures dropped to a low of 17 degrees Celsius, early morning Monday. It was quite pleasant. Although it isn't cold enough for me to don my winter clothing just yet, the mere fact I don't sweat is putting a big smile on my face. It also makes me sleep in far later than I have to so I have been neglecting D as I haven't been preparing his breakfast. But he is a big boy and can manage on his own, bless him!
