On Thursday, October 13th, Chu Sum and I rode the bike to Hong Kong Market in Tacoma. We thought it might rain so we covered up head to toe in rain gear... the sky opened up. We bought our Cantonese cooking supplies before starting the journey back during which time our rain gear was fully put to the test. Despite the low visibility, we took the freeway all the way home where we were pleased to find that our luck had held out - totally dry!
Over the next week I worked a bit but we managed some trail riding on the dirt bike, a couple meals out with friends, a little fishing at Spanaway Lake in my raft, and a virtual reality demo in Seattle with Josh and Jason.
Finally, on the 22nd, we went to Schilter's Farm to meet up with my sister, Jennifer for another pumpkin patch experience. There Chu Sum got to see a few different animals than at Lattin's Farm as well as my brother-in-law's real-life gun (a novel experience for a Hong Konger). After that we went to Wild Waves for Fright Fest.
