SEVEN YEARS Since My Engagement in Sai Kung, Hong Kong

“Because it never ever ever works out right” – Noel Gallagher.

Backpacking all alone through Veliko Tarnovo. Bulgaria.

SEVEN years ago today I got engaged in the seaside village of Sai Kung, and I was destined to live in Asia (Hong Kong). It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning but things changed. That ex girlfriend was a fine lady, she was popular and honest. We managed to visit 44 countries together and all 7 continents. We have the memories, photos and blogs to prove it. It’s all on here, and all over the internet. Boring to say the least.

But we move on. It’s now 3 years since I last saw Panny Yu.

“Some might say that we will find a brighter day” – Noel Gallagher.

Since then there have been days where I didn’t want to be around any longer. I met so many liars, wannabes, fake people, GuruGods and nasties. Three people in particular plunged me into despair and depression. It was well documented on here before, some asshole idiotic stupid bloggers even claimed my depression was a “publicity stunt” to gain exposure to make money.

For whatever reason I arrived in Poland’s Gdańsk one day in 2016, it was my wind of change, my breath of fresh air and I’ve battled to stay alive and I’ve changed.

Be honest, be pure and choose friends who reflect this. One lie without apology or reason, and you’re gone.
