Today I had no classes so I worked on a very, very rough draft of a philosophy paper. My philosophy class (Philosophy of the Mind) is probably my least favorite class I have ever taken in college, as it is all theoretically based. Oh well, it's too late to drop it now, I'll just have to suffer through it. The paper isn't due until October 23rd, but I would like to finish it this weekend before reading week next week. My topic is "are emotions rational?" so if anyone has any great ideas, let me know ;)
After working all day I rewarded myself with a night out. There was an event called "Art in The City" and it looked really cool, so I wanted to check it out. I couldn't find anyone to go with as all my friends either had plans or were away traveling for this long weekend (Japan and Taiwan!). I ended up going with a friend of a friend who I had never met before.
We decided to get dinner before the event, so we went to Causeway Bay (which is where the event took place). We decided on Monster Sushi, which had excellent and fresh sushi at good prices. I ordered California rolls, miso soup and edamame. So good!
Art in the City
We had thought that the event would be free, but it turned out we had to pay a good amount for a ticket which included one free drink. We decided to just pay for it, as we had come to Causeway Bay specifically for this event. The event was held in a restaurant called the "Seafood Room", which is an upscale seafood bar and restaurant.
The event we were going to was held on the rooftop, which had stunning views not accurately portrayed in the pictures I took. The crowd attending was all much older than us, no one looked like they could be around our age. Unfortunately, there wasn't much "art" and we were disappointed. There were some paintings on display, one lady was painting the skyline, a girl debuted her new music video at the end and someone was DJing the whole time. The Facebook event had made it seem like there would be much more art. I still had fun and it was nice to try something new.
After the event ended we went to LKF, but I left pretty soon after we got there because I was tired and had really bad blisters on my feet (new shoes). The pictures below of the butterflies hanging from the ceiling are from where we went afterwards.
Luckily I too have Monday off, of course not for Columbus day, but it is also a national holiday here. What holiday it is here I am not too sure of, but I will enjoy some relaxation (and work!).
