RIP my lovely ciku tree.

24 March 2013, Sunday
If it was a usual Sunday, I should be at home with mom, but today, I got a wedding dinner to attend, therefore, I didn't manage to go home, and not able to see my beloved ciku tree for the last time. 
The noon was very heavy rain with storm, after saying goodbye with mom, we separated. I head to the wedding dinner and mom went home. 
About 3.30pm, a friend posted a photo of my house's tree informing that it had collapsed! Maybe it was hit by storm. I was shocked and given a call to mom soonest possible. Fortunately, mom was alright and house is safe. 
Thank you for the tree that saved our house and keep my mom safe. 
Sadly, this ciku tree that had accompanied our family for a few decades, had sacrificed itself.  We used to have so much fun and joy under this tree. 
前人种树, 后人乘凉 One generation plants the tree in whose shade another generation rests. 
Remember my mom told me that it was my grandmother who gave her the seeds of this ciku tree. After years, it…

Kpop Dance #5 : I Got A Boy by SNSD

Started year 2013 with new song, new dance -- I GOT A BOY ! 
Released on 1st January 2013. A colourful dance shall make the year more fun and joy! 
Thanks Girls Generations aka SNSD !

Teacher was so excited about this new song, she decided to teach us this instead of the previous discussed "We are a bit different" by Evol.

She posted on facebook about this and attracted many new students to join our class.

First time of our class with about 15 people. Wow! the power of SNSD is seriously an impact !

This choreography mostly focus on hip-hop style. It's teacher's favourite.

Because of this song, our class has finally set a limit of student, and made us a group of 8, plus teacher will be 9 of us, Mustang Girls Generation has formed! LoL !

Unlike others dance, we can learn up in 3 classes. This one took more than a month ! Teacher has been very precise on every step we made, I was curious.

Till one of the class, teacher told us a good news and a bad news..

Pear of the Orient - Hong Kong | Chapter 2

26 January 2013, Saturday.
Alarm set at 6.30am. Today, I woke up earlier than the alarm. 
Brushed up and get ready to go for Mission 1 -- Ride on Duk Ling !
Jack had searched some recommended dim sum online, and we headed for it.
It was early morning, not many people at the street. But once we step in to the restaurant, its full of old folks. It's one of the local culture, old folks enjoying their dim sum with a pot of chinese tea after their morning exercise. They look healthy and joyful. I think we are the only 2 at younger age having breakfast there.

Here's the authentic Hong Kong Dim Sum ~ Yum ~ (Mission 3 on going - #4)
After breakfast, again, by MTR again to get to our destination -- Tsim Tsa Tsui pier.
It was a cold windy morning. It's time for my cute little frogs (gloves) to contribute its function.
We were at the pier earlier. Therefore, we took some pictures nearby.
Here comes the Duk Ling. She was really slow. We can see her from far, but it took so long for h…

Pear of the Orient - Hong Kong | Chapter 1

Pearl of the Orient -- Hong Kong.
7 years ago, Jack and I, was here, for our first overseas trip. This time, we have recaptured some of our old time memories and input some new chapters.
Thanks to AirAsia again, offered us a great deal, giving us a chance to go during this cooling season.
Winter in Hong Kong is not extremely cold, average 18°C-19°C, its just like an open air-conditioned room. When the wind blow, it felt like in a huge fridge. Luckily, we've well prepared for this trip, a winter jacket is just nice to keep us warm.
We don't really plan an itinerary for this trip, just want to have a free and easy tour, be spontaneous. We do not want to tie up ourself with a full board schedule, that will be tiring. Yet, we do have some missions to complete during this trip.
Mission 1 : Ride on the Duk Ling -- the 1980s classic fisherman's boat. Mission 2 : Visit Jia Jia and An An -- the giant panda.  Mission 3 : Taste the wonderful Hong Kong's food ! 
A 6 days 5 nights trip, Ho…
