Had a little lunch with one of my pupils.
Things must have got drawn out, and I ended up missing my flight to Hong Kong.
As even more of a bummer, my boss transferred enough money for the trip. Went to the China Bank atm. Pulled my card out, having been over 1 month since I used it, plus the fact I only used it once, plus the fact that it’s a 6 digit code. I’ve entirely forgotten my PIN!
SO that money is useless. It’s going to remain unspent.
This has landed me in some financial difficulties. Not a new thing. I won’t have much money, just enough to eat and stay in. Standard life in Hong Kong for me.
The new flight cost me about £160. Visa cost £110. I’ve got £40 in cash and £100 in my account from the UK.
Pudong on the Metro
Pudong is a long way out. For those hoping to take the metro out there, it’s 16 stops from Peoples Square.
Turns out I’m going to have to transfer money from the UK and be skint again in Hong Kong. I guess you get used to it.
