Octuors quaver. -- Look of the Day  

Octuors made me think of octopus... The other night I spent at least an hour watching octopus videos. I had no idea how cool they are, check out this Indonesian Mimic Octopus!

I just can't get over how they not only change their color to adapt to their environment, but they also mimic the behavior. I don't know if octopus are actually intelligent or if they're just very complicated instinctual animals... There was a documentary of a guy who came across a giant octopus and when it approached him it literally checked him out. Ran its feelers all over him, touched him, and then decided he wasn't a treat and left. How crazy is that? I now love octopus(es).

On another note I went out today with my boyfriend and my parents to the Marriott for lunch. They have a buffet that's pretty nice, not as good as the JW Marriott on HK Island but still pretty good. What I like about the Marriott spread in Admiralty is their organic/vegan section, last time I was there I had such great tofu-chocolate tartlets!

My dad was pretty gung ho on taking a photo of the Marriott's sign, so I took a special picture of just the sign. And then one of me & my dad.

The weather has been so bizarre here today! It went from being beautiful and sunny to shitty and foggy... Apparently there's going to be a typhoon 8 tomorrow, I'm not going to hold my breath this time. So far this typhoon season has really sucked, so if it is an 8 it's going to be a drizzly, windy 8 that rocks on through for about an hour. Thanks typhoon.
