Unexpected Encounters

I was taking the MTR today (the equivalent of subways and metros in major cities around the world), and as soon as I stepped into the train, I heard someone calling my name. It was my aunt - what a coincidence. The chances of meeting somebody on the MTR is slim to none, given the frequency of the trains and the amount of people it carries each day. In any case, we met up for lunch near her office after she ran some errands, and caught up with each other's lives.

During lunch I received a phone call from a former classmate in university - apparently she arrived a week ahead of schedule! We agreed to meet up in Mong Kok to shop around for a bit after lunch, before she meets her relatives in Shum Shui Po later for dinner.

Surprise encounters x 2 in one day.. wonder what else is in store for me during my stay here?
