B went with the parents and Kathy to get his ID issuance. Sissy, BIL, SIL, and I went off on our own for breakfast. It looks horrible, I know. But I promise it tasted way better than the looks. Here, they’re more about getting people in and out. This is how simple a breakfast is and sometimes I miss this. Nothing too fancy, but so satisfying. I guess you can say this is one of my comfort foods.
Afterward we walked all around while looking for a drugstore or supermarket to buy random things. It was still early so there weren’t many people on the street. Which meant we could see so much more of everything. It was nice being able to take it all in.
We went back to our place to drop off our stuff and got ready. We rode the metro again to Central to meet up with our parents and B. We walked a bit around the mall then headed across the street to meet Dad’s cousin and wife and two daughters for lunch. This was equivalent to a US’s country club. There was too much food and it just kept coming.
Afterward, they took us to the longest/highest travelator/escalator in the world. And it’s outdoors!! This goes up to the top of the mountain. A travelator is kind of like those fast walking things you find at the airport. In the mornings they go down so the residents can use it to go to work and whatnot and once it hits a certain time, they go up. If you want to go the opposite direction you would have to actually walk the stairs or take a bus/car ride. Freaking crazy right?
Dad’s cousin’s family lives at the top of the mountain so he invited us into his home. He has a bidet and a telly in his master restroom. WTF … too fancy.
He took us in his van up to part of Victoria Peak. This is what the view looks like in the morning. Super gorgeous and the breeze felt nice. He then dropped us off at the metro afterward and we headed back to our abode where we freshened up and the rest took naps.
On the metro back, this kid comes in holding his fan while watching something on his phone. He had would occasionally rest on my arm … how awkward. When we jerked from starts and stops I would accidentally whack him in the face. I really thought I’d break his glasses. Um … who does that? So freaking weird.
We met up with Wilson and his wife at their hotel where we caught up a bit and figured out where to eat. This is a box of goodies he brought us from Taiwan. Mmmm …
Dad took us in circles trying to find this one restaurant. After walking over 3 miles, we took his leadership away and decided on a different restaurant. Again … more food. Gah … Can’t even handle it. Dad’s cousin and wife also met up for dinner with us. After a while of just sitting and eating, we were tired so the kids got up and left. We went back to the abode and waited on Vincent and Rachel.
They all wanted desset so we headed to Next Station Dessert. There was a rule there where every single person had to either order a dessert or a drink. So … we all overloaded on sugar.
