Didn’t realize the word ‘jipped’ was politically incorrect. Even I don’t know everything ( ha ha ) but it has been removed from my vocabulary. Sorry friends!
How the fuck is this word politically incorrect? All it means is that you got ripped off at a store or something, lol. There is literally no way to be offended by that word.
It comes from the word ‘gypsy’ which is a slur.
This site is full of overly sensitive idiots.
Went into a local car park - where they sell used cars. There was a Porsche Panamera, a few BMW E90 3-series, etc. what caught my eye were these vans (Toyota Vellfire). Bigger than any van I’ve ever seen in the U.S. and the headlights are glorious……
Had dim sum and it had pretty nice decor.
Hong Kong & Taiwan
If anyone knows of any places to visit in HK, I want to know! Doesn’t have to be huge tourist destinations, a hole-in-the-wall place to me is sometimes better than a large event.
I’m on Day 2 and still don’t have any plans for the day yet. Maybe go to California Fitness and sign up for one month.
Can’t let vacation be the excuse/reason to get fat off of good food here…
Taiwan next in a month.
Two years ago, I was in HK for about two weeks. During that time, I must’ve eaten at least 100 curry fish balls.
Now that I’m back, I had some more. 5 on a skewer, then like 20 later with dinner after I went back for a bag of it hahaha
My dad loves dim sum since he’s Cantonese and was born in HK but I never liked it since he never ordered anything that I liked. I couldn’t understand the menu anyway and what they offered because I can’t read Chinese.
This 5-star looking dim sum place that we went to had a menu in English so……I must’ve ended up eating at least 3,000+ calories worth of food just for lunch.
Ended the day with jet lag - slept at 8PM local time, been up since about 5AM. So that’d have been 5AM/2PM in SoCal, respectively. Which is pretty much my sleep schedule the weeks following the flight……sleep at around 3-4AM, wake up at noon or later.
Need to readjust sleep times.
Day 0: I hadn’t even landed yet and I had already met some people, like this couple.
Before the flight even lifted off from LAX to Taipei, I had heard the guy speaking Spanish to his wife in the seats directly behind me. A few hours later he sat next to me to stretch out his legs since I got the seat next to the emergency exit, and both seats next to me were empty.
Long story short, the four years of Spanish that I took in high school was enough to impress/communicate with them. They offered to take me to the Premier Lounge with them once we were in Taipei but we barely stayed for 5-10 minutes before we had to leave for our connecting flight from Taipei to Hong Hong Kong.
It was definitely funny to see the looks of the other passenger and flight attendants when they heard me speaking Spanish with them.
This is why I love learning new languages. Doesn’t matter if your aim is business-oriented, travel, etc, it just creates connections once you get to understand what others are saying, and vice versa.
We’re now friends on FB and they’ve invited me to their homes if I ever go to LA or Texas. Happy 13th anniversary (and birthday Sr. Caballero) and safe travels!
