Goodbye To Carrie And John For 3 Months

The IFC building in Hong Kong, the tallest and most prominent building in the city. Part of the Hong Kong Series.

Last night after work, even though I was tired, I met up with my wife.

I had a snooze in the afternoon, after I had gone by NTNU again to drop off some more papers. The nap was refreshing. I felt pretty good afterwards.

We went to Citizen Cain (國民, 台北市東豐街 67 號) to say goodbye to Carrie and John for the next few months; they are leaving for a whirlwind tour of south-east Asia and then visiting their families in North America. They are getting married next year and this will be the only good opportunity for them to spend time with their families and for the families to meet their future family.

On the way there, it took me a while to find the place, since we hopped into a taxi to get there a bit faster; I find that it’s easier to retrace your steps if you walk. If you change anything, it gets confused.

We managed to find the place after a while. The last time I went there, I found the food ok, but nothing special. We had a good time though.

We joined Carrie, John, Christian, Jason, Vicki, Druva, Anna and a few others in celebrating their departure. It was a fun night. When I arrived, I was hungry but I could only order snacks. As I had already sampled the poutine and found it a bit disappointing, I ordered a classical pizza and some quesadillas. The quesadillas were good, surprisingly. I find the food a bit overprices, but it’s a nice combination to be able to eat meals while others are drinking. In fact, almost everyone had something to eat.

This time, there was no “speedpay”, which was refreshing.

I had a good time and I hope that both of them will have a lot of fun together in Asia and in America.

    Have you ever tried the poutines at New York Bagel? I’m a pretty big fan of them.

    Not yet. I’ll have to try them. I haven’t really gone out hunting for them either.
