Old Ryan, New Home

This was going to be my turn to visit Ryan in Fuzhou, but since we just moved into the new apartment we decided that he should come here to check it out. Usually when Ryan comes to Hong Kong we go to a hotel. The old apartment was just too small for everybody at the same time. Staying in a hotel gave Ryan & I some time alone and also worked out for Lily & Kevin. Now that there’s plenty of room for everyone, Ryan can stay here whenever he comes to Hong Kong.

Lily & Kevin were at work a lot, so Ryan wanted to test drive the apartment. His top priority was to have sex on the balcony, but that was never going to happen. It’s a big enough balcony. It’s the biggest balcony I’ve ever seen in Hong Kong. There’s plenty of room to do all kinds of things, but it’s still in Hong Kong. Our building isn’t pressed against the next building, but we still have neighbors who can easily see our balcony when they’re on theirs. That balcony’s big enough to have a party, but you’re never going to have any privacy on it.

Naturally, Ryan suggested we wait until night time. Hong Kong isn’t exactly dark at night – there are always plenty of lights on everywhere – but you could probably go unnoticed on the balcony with the living room lights off. So maybe there’s slightly more privacy at night, but there’s also a lot more mosquitoes. There are plenty of mosquitoes in the day time – more than enough, in fact. But night time is when they really come out in full force. Since this is mosquito season – anywhere between March and December is mosquito season – I’d prefer to be as covered as I can when I’m outside at night. There are parts of my body that really don’t need mosquito bites.


  1. Sex on the balcony is something you do before you vacate the flat for good : )

  2. We signed a one year lease, so it might be a while, but I'll try to keep that in mind.


No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
