It's Saturday once again and just how the days go by makes me wanna sing, lol! The day was good generally. I hope it is going well at your end too :)

For the first time in a long time, I got myself to watch a film yesterday. I found one called "Charlie's Angels" from the husband's archives. It was released in 2019 and although the casts were changed, the film was okay. I was trying to get some inspiration for a writing challenge for the weekend but for some reason, my mind won't cooperate.

Anyway, today was all good too. I was up late (at past 8 am) which is quite unusual but it is cool, some more hours of sleep wouldn't hurt. I guess my body needed it. The husband is still away and the house is really quiet so I spent some time outdoors sweeping some dried tree leaves in the yard and then started writing for Hive around 11 am.

I have grown to love writing and it has now become part of my daily routine. It's what actually takes most of my time every day.

There was one in the other platform who challenged herself to write daily for a year and it made me wonder if I could do it too. Maybe yes, maybe not. It all depends on my commitment. Sometimes writing is easy, but can be challenging too, especially when we run into the so-called "writer's block." It is just good that these platforms don't limit us on what to write about.

So today, I decided to ramble about memories and re-live them through some photographs of the past years.

This one for example, was taken in HK during an afternoon walk with the husband and a few friends. Incidentally, it was the very first (and last) tortoise (large one) that I have personally seen to date. I don't know why it was lighted during the day, but it may have been part of its care.

This too, was taken in HK, close to where our hotel was around the Victoria Harbour. We spent some evenings here along with the locals who tend to love the quiet and peace of the space.

(Shared on Noise and on Hive)

And this is one of the shopping arcades in China where we usually go for some stuff and at times, have meals at KFC, lol! There was a cinema here but we haven't tried going in.

Mind you, their BBQ chicken was really tasty!

This place was just a walking distance from our apartment, we still ride the e-bike going to this place, lol!

I think we tasted all the kinds of chicken being served in this KFC branch. The atmosphere was generally cool and the crews were cheerful especially when the husband orders our food, lol!

And these will be all for today. I could share more but I wouldn't wish to take much of your time :) I understand the constraints we all go through when reading and commenting on many articles in a day so I try as much as possible to make mine short.

Thank you and I wish you a great weekend!

Cheers!

There are 3 Charlie's Angels that were released (2000, 2003, 2019). I watched the 2 many years ago. Your sense of time is not wobbling as you said.

Writing is cool but writer’sblock is the issue. And moreover come to talk of the trip to HK. It’s really mind blowing. I have seen a tortoise before. A small one. I wished to see something bigger.

Yes, it's a challenge at times. The tortoise must have been very old by the looks of it.

Hmm.. there's this huge tortoise in one of our Kings palace here in Africa. They say it's over 150 years old and has been around ever since the king's father was still a child. It could carry a full grown man and move steadily with the weight round the palace

I did :) The tastes of the KFC meals here is a lot different in China. I think they adjust to fit each country's preferences.

I have one concern, namely the turtle, whether it is real or alive, it is very unique, the image of this turtle is very beautiful to look at. Memories of meeting turtles like this may have never been for me

I have never seen a tortoise in my life because it is rare in our country. I have never even eaten KFC food because I can't afford it. And now I will find that movie.

Tortoise are becoming extinct I think. We were fortunate to have seen one. I think home cooked food is better than KFC :)

The first movie of Charlie's angels are still the best. Although the last movie's characters are great, but I find it boring. Anyways, is that a turtle or tortoise?

That's true. I like the originals better. I seem to have forgotten what Kush told me, tortoise are big ones. Turtle are the small ones.

The 2019 Charlie's angels is overrated and not as good as the 2001 version. I think you should watch that one.

Yes, the first one and I think there was a second too and they were great so I got surprised when I didn't see them in the 2019 version. I was like, "is that it?" yesterday, lol!

Sometimes the best thing one can just think about and also love to share to others is memories, because memories are just meant to keep us happy most times, it's just like remembering your awkward moments 😂,you will be like OMG and just laugh it away. Good morning friend. And nice write-up by the way.
