I have a huge family on this side of the ocean. Tonight, I had dinner at a paternal greataunt's house, and it was absolutely packed. Greatuncle wished to see us, but unfortunately he passed away before we were able to come to Hong Kong.

In any event, the dinner was wonderful, but there were so many people that I cannot possibly remember them all. I think over 30 people packed themselves into a large Hong Kong flat, which was about half the size of my flat in Montréal.

Everyone here seems really happy when large groups of people congregate. I suspect that some people would have a really difficult time here. There's just so much noise that it causes sensory overload, unless you can filter it out.
