Dragon Boat Day


Today is the Tuen Ng festival, which commemorates the death of Quan Yu, a Chinese statesman and poet.. This festival is celebrated by eating sticky rice dumplings (Zong Zi), and, of course, by paddling a dragon boat.

Today is my first ever dragon boat day in Hong Kong where I'm not out on the water in Stanley, so this is a somewhat sad day for me. This is mainly due to the Tendonitis I've been suffering from ever since I got back from Melbourne. At one point I could hardly type without pain, much less hold a paddle. I'm a lot better now, but I still get pains in my arms when I'm typing too much or stressed.
