    Hi Kammy,

    Hey, I m from HK also. I miss HK alot too. 40 is not too old, you can still try to have a daughter. I have 2 boys and always wanted to have a daughter but I am not brave enough to try for a 3rd child. I don’t want to end up with 3 boys. 2 boys and a hubby is a handful for me. U and MB r right, our children mean the world to us. We are better because of them. They continue to amaze me everyday.

    Oh sorry , the ??? are all cantonese characters. My pc could not type cantonese and chinese characters. I am typing cantonese characters with Japanese kanji but it did not work on this comment board.
    Well, the ??? were chinese names of the singers.
    And I have met Leslie in person before.The ??? in cantonese said : He was very young looking and needless to say VERY HANDSOME.

    no i live in the boston area in the US. Shopping at fa yuen street is my favorite. i love the street food and the shopping especially at the import/export shops…lots of brand name items for less. after living in the US, the style of clothes from HK is not good for me. i also love to shop at the japanese dept stores…like justco, sago & uny. i can go on and on about HK. hehe

  6. Comment by K — May 19, 2009 @ 12:15 pm

    Ms. Tsuchiyama: Yes I would do exactly what you did, just went HK just to attend concert… I’m a concert maniac!!

  7. Comment by tsuchiyama — May 19, 2009 @ 12:40 pm

    Hi Ilovetvb ,
    All those japanese dept stores which you have mentioned were located not very far away from my house(my parent home) therefore I was always there. I am living in tai hung, chun fai rd. Therefore I am quite familiar with causeway bay , northpoint(childhood old place), tai koo shing.
    i like the sport shops at fa yuen street. Well, besides Italy, I love shopping in HK too. In terms of variety and design , I have to say Japan is the best. Japan has everything from almost every part of the world. But shopping in Japan is not cheap. Therefore I love to shop in HK and of course Italy. I think you should know the shop selling milk pudding at causeway bay. My husband loves it. I can talk on and on with you about HK. Not only HK, I can talk on and on with you on Singapore and Europe as well.But I may not be able to answer questions regarding cooking. And hey your english name means “beautiful” in french. I knew this word very well because french like to use this word (in praises)
    Thank you MB for all the uploading.

    Kammy, I would also like to know about your lasik experience. I have had to wear eye glasses since I was 10 years old. My friend is an eye doctor and she doesn’t suggest doing it. She said that it is still too early to tell if this is good for the eyes long term. But I would like to ask about your experience.

    Dear girls,

    My lasik experience was wonderful – I did at the HK & Sanatorium Hospital.

    Day 1 – Eye check up, it took you three hours for this full check up, and they will give you an assigned doctor (random) who will later do the lasik for you. They will charge few thousand (HK$)extra if you request for a specific doctor to do the surgery. At the end of the day, you will have a chance to meet with the doctor and he / she will advise you whether you are suitable to do the lasik.

    Day 2 – Lasik day – This could be just few days or any time after your first visit if you meet the requirement to do lasik. You must need someone to accompany you for the lasik. The whole lasik only took about 10 minutes and no pain at all. Then doctor will recommend you to take rest at home for one night.

    Day 3 – It’s the next morning after the lasik, you should already have perfect vision by then. And you need to go back for a check up as well.

    The lasik comes with a package and you can pay with credit card by 6 instalments, I think the total was about HKD 23000- (approximately). It also includes 3 checks up in 1 month, 3 months and 6 months after the lasik is done.

    Afterall, I think Sanatorium has the best facility for Lasik and I’m highly recommend to you their service instead of other clinics. BTW, guess who I saw in the hospital when I did the check up? Li Ning – the guy who lighted the Beijing Olympic Torch last year!!

    Oh… btw, I was nearly blind i.e. -9 for both eyes too and the whole process was not scary nor painful.

    And… Yes, I would never forget Leslie and up to now still remember the shock on April 1 2003′s evening.

  17. Comment by shirleyloo — May 20, 2009 @ 1:07 am

    thanks for sharing so much Kammy… my husband kept urging me to do lasik treatment as well (mine is -7.00); but Im just too scared like Pandora & Pat… scared that my eyes will go blind if the tip of the machine poke into the eyes accidentaly haha… but now u said it’s painless, I might wanna try out after gather enough courage lah ;-)

    Yeah Jo, u sounds like promoting Jap more huh?? ;-)

  18. Comment by K — May 20, 2009 @ 1:25 am

    shirley…. the whole process is automatic and they put protection on your eyes and won’t ‘poke’ la…… don’t be funny:)!!! the doctor just served the role of monitoring the whole process…..

    kammy

  19. Comment by shirleyloo — May 20, 2009 @ 4:00 am

    hehe… thanks for ur assurance K. I still need to find enough courage hoho..

  20. Comment by Pandora — May 20, 2009 @ 1:57 pm

    kammy – Thank you for sharing your experiences with us.

    shirleyloo – haha… I agree with the poking thing.

    Being able to see is very important to me – I would trade anything to have able to see. Saw the procedure online and it scared me >__<

    My parents told me how they read on the newspaper article that some people went blind, eye sight got worse, or they can’t look at bright lights.

  21. Comment by ilovetvb — May 20, 2009 @ 3:09 pm

    thks kammy for the info. My eye doctor friend told me briefly that the lasik eye surgery to correct vision is still consider ‘new’. She suggest that I wait b4 considering to do this type of surgery.

    I m just as afraid as shirleyloo & pandora. but i m not young, so if i wait any longer i’ll need to get bifocals also.

  22. Comment by K — May 20, 2009 @ 9:50 pm

    Dear girls,

    For Biofocal, the doctor will adjust and won’t do perfect vision for you. They’re professional and know our problems. Lasik is not any new to me, as far as I know, even the equipement has been at least 7-8 generations already.

    Kammy

  23. Comment by ilovetvb — May 21, 2009 @ 5:52 pm

    From what I know research for lasik eye surgery has been for a long time. However, it is not until the 1970′s that it was done on human. It was not until the late 1980′s that it became popular in the U.S. So I still consider it quite ‘new’. There are still risks involved and side effects from it. I heard that you can get dry eyes and sometimes the vision is not totally corrected. I have not done extensive research on it, but I am still hesitant to do it.

    Anyway, Kammy, u r quite brave. I admire that!
