The rhythm of each day is beginning to settle. Lots of activities but a lack of the kind of pressure which normally greets my arrival at work in the UK. for that I am grateful. This seems to free up the mind to enjoy reflective thinking without the pressure to solve problems or trouble shoot issues. This still happens but not until 5 pm now at the earliest so I can keep it at bay whilst making my day most productive. This feels good. I am beginning to get my core writing targets sorted. I have a list of at least 10 possible articles so beginning to do work on one or two of them. I am slightly anxious about this because I am used to writing reports for deadlines and the more relaxed personal gaols will make keeping to task a little more difficult.
I am not good at changing my diet but a frugal spending regime hs helped initiate some changes. I am certainly eating a lot more fruit – yellow mango; papyra ,pomelo and pineapple becoming early favorites. I have discovered the wet market now so for a short walk I can get some cheaper fruit. Still need some kitchen equipment but adapting to my environment.
My first day out at the Hong Kong cricket Sixes was a great day. Though hot exposed to the full glare of the sun, it was a great atmosphere, people were friendly and relaxed and some good cricket was played. if not by England!! It was good to see this form of the game played by such good players and over 200 sixes actually resulted. The ground looks great and I will certainly go back to watch an ordinary local match and view the ground in full relief.
