a spare room


Have a guest room.

Leave it for Mom or Dad when they wanted to stay over.    But they seldom do so……

Leave it for overseas friends when they need a place for one or two days……

But most of time it is a stock room…. full of clothes, books, bears and all stuff I seldom needed……

Now a chance comes….

I could better utilised the room…….

A friend is coming to visit Hong Kong for a month

He wanted to rent my room.  He said he had to pay anyway, better paid to me…. and we could spend more time together.

Yes, he will come here for me.    It will be the second time we meet.

I thought it would be fine to let him stay with me.   Just like having a flat mate.  Just like having a couch surfer….

But I am surprised.  My family and friends advised me not to do so.  They said I don’t know the guy well.  And I will be away most of time.  Better play safe.


Are they thinking too much?  Or the way I see the world is too simple?
