Half Marathon

Completed my half marathon run, 2hr 18min, my personal record! âœŒđŸ» 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, […]

Hot Days!!

The weather is so hot these days that one immediately starts sweating within 5 min. of walking outside.  I finally turned on the air-conditioner at home for the first time last weekend, as environmentally friendly as I hoped to be, I seriously couldn’t sleep without it. I thought I could still do my morning run this week […]

UW Alumni TBOD

Attracted by the presentation title Science & Entrepreneurship, I decided to join a formal alumni event of my former alma mater for the first time after moving back to HK for 7 or 8 years.  The talk was basically a presentation of the facts and milestones of the university’s initiative in incubating tech startups in the university town […]

Easter Monday

Through a flyer I came across after strolling around a christian bookstore, I discovered and signed up for an art jamming session on this Creative Monday.  I’ve been wanting to try out art jamming and learn to paint with acrylics for many years, but passed many opportunities due to timing and cost.  Today’s art jamming session […]

Keep Running

Made an effort to continue my running practice this morning while the weather still permits.  I’ve always been thankful for the luxury to flexibly schedule my working hours, it’s rather pleasurable to be able to run and sweat in the morning before getting busy with the day. Recently, the luxury to run in the morning […]

Sister and Nieces in Town

My sister and 2 nieces from Toronto had been back for about a week, I had been spending more time with them and less time doing work (always thankful for a flexible work schedule).  But it’s December already, and I’m starting to procrastinate on the many things I wish to finish before the end of 2016!
