Nooooooooo… as the world was sinking deeper and deeper, one must find a way to cheer up. I think about what I love. I love Shanghai. For the amazing pre-war architecture on the bund, its nostalgic alley lined with sycamore trees, the scrumptious hairy crab delicacy, I might even move there one day, who knows. Exodus from US is en vogue.

In light of what's happening in this country, some felt an uncontrollable depression and others, a sinister sense of triumph. I am feeling lethargic, the tiredness of fighting. Born non white and non male, proud being both really but couldn't help to question… what happened to basic human decency?!
這趟商旅… 陰錯陽差, 未能赴格友Echo衣香鬢影的生日宴, 出發前一天, 老朋友M興高采烈傳簡訊告知我他快來灣區開會, 想來是要給我驚喜, 結果我大潑冷水說將遠遊未歸 :(

每回環亞商旅必自嘲: 從舊金山飛新德里, 一條小命去掉一半; 在新德里開幾天會紅眼班機飛香港, 另一半小命也沒了. 某次眉飛色舞對少年友伴描述歷險記, 友伴不以為然: 女孩子家何必那麼辛苦? 我大笑: 富貴險中求!
行走江湖多年, 早練得渾身是膽, 在新德里機場上午夜班機前, 必到搭滿帳篷和行軍床的長廊內, 享用物美價廉的印度式足療. 也因為紅眼班機, 捨隱形眼鏡就黑框, 重度近視者皆知, 取下厚厚的鏡片, 眼中登時另個世界, 所以那45分鐘1000盧比的按摩宛若超現實風格, Sofia Coppola導演的龍門客棧.Last evening of the trip, a treat to stay at the Peninsula Hong Kong. I am a sucker for old world charms.
