One of the best perks of my job is getting to work with the most beautiful people from various ethnicities. I shall never forget Ling who I think has the most dramatic faces I’ve seen here in Hong Kong.
Her face is cold and androgynous yet feminine. Which is why she had been a recurring subject in my drawings.
If you find yourself in Hong Kong International Airport departure area of terminal 1, why don’t you try Saboten? It serves authentic Japanese Katsu. A bit pricey but definitely worth it.
My flight back to Manila was 215am last weekend and we were looking forward to having this for dinner. Unfortunately, Saboten closes at 10pm and our check-in time was around midnight.
Luckily, Manila has its own version — Yabu, House of Katsu, located at the Megamall Atrium. It did not disappoint. The breading was so crispy and the meat was so tender. I tried the chicken katsu set while Miguel ordered the premium tonkatsu set. We also tried the prawn katsu which was absolutely divine. The prawns were cooked perfectly— maintaining its translucent meat and not overdone.
Here are some updates so far.. Disneyland opened a new attraction: Toy Story Land. We got an early preview last week. It would’ve been perfect thought if it wasn’t raining. Then we celebrated all birthday celebrants for November. I gave Tin a hickie during the Scorpio Nights party. We won the game thanks to Julie. A couple of shots of Christmas in the park are up and I’m also currently addicted to avocado.
This moth lives for just one day, and yet, you will never see it fall to the ground and curse the futility of its existence. Nor flowers weep when winter comes. Nor the moon sigh when dawn approaches. We are only ever given just so much. But it is always, all we need.
