Hong Kong part two

Posted by engi at 10:56:00 PM 0 comments Links to this post

Wednesday night I arrived in Hong Kong.  This time I will spend my time alone. It's not a holiday.  It's a trip with mission! Not as cool as secret agent mission but It's quite tiring..

I need to report my marriage to Indo consulate in HK.  Yes, we didn't do it when we were here..  we were so hurry headed back to China,  and now must spend more time n money for things that we could do back then.  Oh well,  we learned our lesson:D

I'm quite impressed with Indo consulate staffs work,  they were very helpful.  And I also thankful to Mr consulate,  because helped me to get document that I needed at the same day I submitted it because I fly far away from Xi'an.  So thoughtful!

I also need to get certified copy of my marriage certificate and send it to my homeland,  Indonesia.  I thought I could make payment by cash.  But the officer said no,  because I want a postal process I need to make bank draft payable to Hong Kong government. The officer told me that I could make it at any bank.  Sound easy rite? But the fact wasn't!

I didn't know that most of bank won't make bank draft for u if u don't have bank account on that bank.  I went to BNI they can't do it. Then to China citic bank,  bank of China,  China construction bank,  all rejected me!  I walked a lot,  saw map a lot,  lost some times..  omg so tiring..  one last try,  I went to HSBC,  the receptionist said they can make bank draft for me although I don't have bank account there.  But guess what?  I told myself not to believe her,  so I won't be disappointed (again!) If the teller told me cannot:D

It was a long queue..  I was so tired and sweaty.  When it was my turn I asked whether I could make bank draft without hsbc account.  And he said yes they can,  but must pay handling fee amounted HKD 100. Oh thanks God,  at last!

Long story huh? So tired today..  my feet hurt,  huhuhu...
Tomorrow I will go to lantau island to see the big Buddha.  So excited,  but I wish I could go with bebe -_-" I actually want to go to ocean park too,  but I don't want to do it without bebe..

Will share my experience after visiting the big Buddha..  talk to u soon!

eBay Sucks!

Posted by engi at 10:17:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post
eBay being so mean to me lately, it suspended my account because of some stupid buyers too lazy to ask some question and just open dispute against me for nothing. And now they hold my fund. Don't they realize I've been selling there for 3 years with no major problem? -_-" 
So my quote of the day:


Let's take a nap @KFC

Few days ago I went to KFC for lunch. I know, junk food bad for me but I was so hungry and need some food before shopping some groceries. It was around 2PM, and this is what I found!

Many people took nap there! OMG, I know from my friend that Chinese love take nap. But really? At KFC? lol

Feel depressed today somehow,  not sure what caused it.  Maybe I just think too much.  Tired...

Chinese + Umbrella = Sun Phobia ???

Posted by engi at 11:03:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post

It's almost summer people! And yes, the sun shines so bright.. its time for.. UMBRELLA!

For Chinese skin color related to social status that you have. The lighter yous skin color means the higher social status you are in. We can see the logic here, people with light skin means they don't hav to work under the sun, such as farmer, construction builder, n etc. Which means you have a good indoor work that pay you more money than people who work outdoor. The lighter your skin, lesser outdoor work you do, means the wealthier you are. That's what I understand from my Chinese friend.

To have light skin color some people use whitening products, and another prevention step is avoid the sun! That's the important function of Umbrella!!! I've seen many people use umbrella since Spring coming old, young, skinny, fat, mostly women.. but men also want to keep their skin away from the sun. Just like this guy!

What about when you're on the bus and the evil sun light attack you???

Of course, Chinese will use their umbrella! Hahahaha... Can I call Chinese has sunphobia? :p

Orang Cina dan Payung

Posted by engi at 10:51:00 AM 0 comments Links to this post

Payung, payung, payung... dimana-mana ada payung!
Yup, musim panas telah tiba dan payung layaknya jamur di musim hujan menyebar dimana-mana. Nyebutnya apa yah? Memayung? bukan menjamur? Wekekekeke...

Di Cina warna kulit menandakan status sosial yang dimiliki. Semakin cerah/putih kulit seseorang menandakan bahwa semakin tinggi status sosialnya dengan asumsi dia tidak perlu bekerja di bawah terik matahari. Gak beda jauh dengan di Indonesia kan? Banyak orang beranggapan putih itu cantik, orang kaya berkulit cerah/putih karena mereka bekerja di dalam ruangan ber-AC dan pake mobil kemana-mana. Aku pribadi sih nggak melihat kecantikan dari warna kulit, terlalu sempit pemikiran seseorang jika cuma berpatokan pada satu hal seperti itu -__-"

Oh well, kembalik ke topik awal. Karena pandangan umum tentang warna kulit tadi, banyak orang cina ingin kulitnya terlihat cerah/putih. Selain menggunakan produk pemutih mereka juga memiliki senjata andalan yang namanya...

Hampir semua orang (terutama wanita) tua muda, kurus gemuk, pake payung kalo keluar rumah. Tapi jangan salah, kaum pria juga ingin kulitnya terlihat cerah, karena itulah pria yang satu ini juga pake payung :p

Kalo di dalam bis gimana?

Ya tetep pake payung! Hahahaha... Can I call Chinese has sunphobia? :p
