Our original plan last night was to go visit the sidewalk Japanese restaurant and a bunch of other restaurants including the fried fish soup place for dinner. When we drove past the Japanese place was packed and lots of people waiting, so we decided to go to the other places first and then come back. Then after we went to the other places we were going to go back to the hotel for a bit and then go out again.
That should have been my clue, but I’m a bit slow sometimes. First Bonita and Ilona got tired of waiting for Emily to take her bath so they went out to get something nearby. By the time Emily was finished, we got ready to go only to find out my mother-in-law and Elly didn’t want to go out anymore. At this time I was the only one who really wanted to go, so we just bagged the plans.
Maggie was worried that I “hadn’t eaten enough” but that only means I only ate at one of the restaurants we went to, not all four. (Actually I nibbled at two more of them.) I reminded her that I’m trying to lose weight anyways which convinced her. I really wasn’t hungry anyways.
Emily was a bit fussy when going to bed saying she wanted to go home to sleep. She does that sometimes when we go stay someplace unfamiliar. She said she missed King and Lumy.
This morning we just had a breakfast buffet in the hotel lobby and I’m now waiting for everyone to get ready and go. Then we’ll see what our plans turn out today. I’m hoping at least some of us make it to Gaoxiong so that I can get some fried fish soup there at the Liuhe Night Market.
