My Birthday Week

This week marked the resumption of daily Mass at the Seat of Wisdom Chapel at Ricci Hall and I rostered myself to take up scripture readings for the week, which was a ritual I sorely missed during the lockdown. Monday morning was cool and crispy and I arrived Ricci Hall shortly after 7am by MTR. […]

It’s April, the Month of Celebrations

April for me has always been special because it is the month marking the birthdays of many friends and people dear and near to me including my only son and a godchild and a host of other friends. We used to celebrate the birthdays of Aprilers over a dinner or two and so on. Then, […]

Wu Kau Tang Revisited

Su apparently so loved the Green Villa eatery after the last visit that she began to ask me to take her there again shortly afterwards. I suggested that it would be more cost effective and safer if we could persuade two more friends to go with us. She asked round her hiker friends, but the […]

An 18km Hike

My last blog made reference to YVR which attracted some discussion on why IATA had assigned many Canadian airports with the prefix “Y” which in turn must have helped to boost visit numbers a bit – but I wouldn’t know about readership – somewhat an unintended consequence, and from which I have learned something, the […]

A Sort of Anniversary

It was almost exactly to the day one year ago I returned Hong Kong from YVR by myself on a one-way ticket, leaving Su with an unused ticket under my name, so that I could make a medical appointment. I made the uneventful appointment alright – the nurses gave me a chit to collect medicines […]

More on Biography

It has been three weeks less a day since I uploaded my last blog and we are almost done with the first month of the Year of the Ox, though not quite. We had fine days with bright sun and blue sky and we also had heavy rains and misty days recently. It is great […]

How We Started the Year of the Ox

For as long as my memory serves me, it was probably the one year we did not have a family year end dinner in any shape or form. Actually one had been planned for Laguna City at Su’s parents’ place, but was canceled a week before, in deference to appeals from health authorities to avoid […]

I am proud of this one

Today is the last day of the Year of the Mouse and tomorrow marks the beginning of a new Lunar New Year, even though the Year of the Ox has already started clicking astronomically on 3 February, more than a week ago. Let me quickly wrap up on The Middle Child project. On 20 January, […]

I Updated My Blog’s Welcome Page

A few things happened since my Book Launch sessions, not least the dramatic exit from the White House of Trump and his equally dramatic second impeachment, followed by the Inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th US President amidst a capital under lockdown, with an empty National Mall and no crowds and a heavily guarded […]

My Book Launch

I sent the blueprint of my first autobiography to the printer shortly after Christmas. The printer said I could expect the copies to be ready in about two weeks. After a week, Su began inviting friends through the social media to place orders. I am not good with marketing, and I feel embarrassed to push […]
