Weekly Update

Caught a cold early this week, had been living most of the week with a runny nose and unwanted tiredness.  Despite the need to rest more, there were some social meet ups I promised to join the week before: Mon: volunteered for the first time with Lizzie Bee to learn how Art can be applied […]

A Blessed Trip

Been back to HK for 5 days, still a little jet-lagging, woke up at around 5am this morning even though I was able to stay awake past midnight before sleep. Life slowly getting back to normal in HK, but still very much reminiscing of my month-long blessed trip in Canada.  Looking back on the trip, […]

Day Trip to UW

Took a short day trip to my Alma Mater to meet and catch up with pastor Tim, I could never seem to find a way to treat him for a meal, neither in HK nor in Canada, thx again! Took a short walk around the campus after lunch, brought back many fond memories… I remember […]

Week of Meetups

Met up with my old fellowship b/s for dinner last night. Other than meeting some new kids, every b/s seemed more or less the same as 6+ years ago. Though the small fellowship hasn’t really grown over the last few years, and some b/s had switched churches or even stopped going to fellowship, our relationships […]

Half Marathon

Completed my half marathon run, 2hr 18min, my personal record! ✌🏻 The half marathon was not the main reason for this trip, I hesitated to register when my friend told me about it after I booked my flight because I stopped my running practice for 3 months due to the hot weather in HK. With […]

Childhood Neighborhood Visit

Got up really early and made a rehearsal drive to the bus station where I’ll be taking the bus downtown to the half-marathon starting point tomorrow morning. Still very early afterwards, I decided to go visit my childhood neighborhood. Started a long walk in the nature trail at around the time I’ll be starting the […]

More Hospitability

Been back to my “home and native” land for about 10 days already, and I’m still constantly experiencing friends’ warm welcome and hospitality! Had 3 different meet and catch-up meals with old friends over the pass weekend, there were lots of joy and laughters. Many friends seeing how much I missed Canada suggested I move […]

Thanksgiving

Joined Sunday service at my home church here in Toronto, many things and people seemed the same as before, strangely felt like I had travelled back in time to 6 years ago. Had lunch with a few of my old fellowship sisters afterwards, the 6 years of separation didn’t seem to have distanced our relationships, […]

Hospitality

At the Toronto airport customs, I was asked when I last visited Canada, I told them it has been more than 6 years, and the personnel’s response, “wow, it’s been 6 years?! You should come back more often to see family and friends!” Not exact wording, but that’s seriously what he sounded like to me. […]

Goodbye August, Goodbye Summer!

Another month has gone without a trace, can You make time pass a little slower oh Lord?! I have many things in mind that I wanted to do, but the plans require long term dedication, I’m a bit afraid to even start.  I’ve been planning on an extended vacation back to Canada this Fall, it’s been […]
