Activities

Running

I enjoy running, not only because of its physical benefits, but more importantly, because it cleans up my mind. I consider myself as an amateur runner and I still keep on running. I do have a Garmin Connect and most of time I run with my watch. Feel free to connect with me. So far, I have completed the following races:

2014
Oct. Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service Half Marathon (HM incoming)
Sept. ManyFest 10&10 Race (10 miles incoming)
May. Winnipeg Police Half Marathon (HM)
2013
Oct. Twilight Run (10K)
Aug. Hope Classic (5K)

Writing

Yes, you heard me right. I do like writing. The major challenge is that I used to write in Chinese, but now I try to write in English. I am actually writing a fantasy novel, which is more like a kid's story using my daughter as the main character. My goal is...hmm...finish it before I die.

Olivia

Meet Olivia.

She is growing and growing...and of course, more and more energy.

Say Hello.

Sorry the following contact form does not work because stupid GoDaddy server does not support send email by code. The sample code on their page does not work, every sample I found online does not work, and the worst part is, GoDaddy does not have email support anymore and I definitely do not want to call them to discuss how to write code. I have decided to leave GoDaddy very soon. If you want to say hi, please use:
