So today a couple of friends and I decided to check out one of the three free gyms offered to HKU students, this one being off campus and about a 0.6 mile walk away from my dorm. The "short walk" ended up being almost entirely up hill, to our surprise, so we considered it a warm up to working out.
The gym ended up being of below average quality, as the facilities were quite old and there was only one main area of machines. On the property there were also tennis courts, badminton courts, table tennis and an outdoor pool (which none of us used). There weren't that many people inside the gym, so I didn't have to wait to use anything but I feel that might have been the case since school hasn't started yet.
For dinner I went to the same restaurant that my buddy Kathy took me on the first night when I arrived. I ordered the noodles above, which is what she had ordered and I had tasted (which I liked better than my own meal). The meal was only ~$1.80 USD and was a good size portion.
Unfortunately, I refrained from buying those tasty looking ice cream bars above but I will eventually!
Tomorrow morning I have orientation for new non-local students, and then in the afternoon I have orientation for social science students. Early to bed for me tonight!
