Live a Simple Life

I have learnt a couple of thing during this year. One of it is appreciating how to live a simple life. I realised that I have brought too many things to Oxford and also bought a few branded stuffs in London and Italy. So, everytime when I do the packing (i.e. Oxford --> Finland --> Oxford --> London --> Germany -->London--> Hong Kong), I wasted too much time on it which is too annoying.

I am the kind of person that don't like troubling people but these packing activities did involve the help from my family and classmates (though they don't consider these as problems, they are too kind to me!). I think be myself and act confidently is far more essential, which I've learnt from some friends. Let's see how long could I keep my motto after I get my salary :)

This is little Trevor, son of my best of the best friend. Today is the first time we meet each other. He is only 6.5 months old but already too big for my Oxford T.

You can see how much he has grown compared with my 29 April blog.

I realised that I have developed the following habits during the past year:

- drinking tap water: this habit developed since Finland trip but I mustn't do it in HK
- walking with sports shoes: loss interest in driving now and find painful walking with high heels shoes
- walking under the sun: thus my skin color is getting dark
- life without TV: can save more time
- text message instead of making a phone call
- reading articles on screen instead of hardcopies: more environmental friendly
- blogging: don't want to cease this habit but I think I need to formally close this blog soon because there will be nothing related to "Journey to MBA at Oxford"

Travelling Summary

Many friends asked me which countries I have visited in this year. I've been to too many places, let me summarise below in case I forgot in the future.

Spain: Barcelona
South of France: Montpellier, Avignon, Arles, Marseille, AIX-EN Provence, Cannes, Nice
Holland: Amsterdern, Leeuwarden
Italy: Milan, Florence, Rome
France: Paris
China: Shanghai
Finland: Helsinki, Espoo
Sweden: Stockholm
Germany: Rothenburg, Wurzburg, Zugspitze, Munich
UK: Stonehenge, Salisbury, Avebury, Bath, Southampton, Northampton, Cambridge, Farnborough, Wales (Swansea), Scotland (Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Inverness)

The place that I like best is Iceland because I like seeing nature scenery. The worst place is Finland, may be because we spent too much time working in Nokia project and I set too high expectation in this two months trip.


So cool that Wadham will have a reception in Hong Kong two weeks later. I hesitate to join or not because it may be a bit boring. However, I decided to participate finally because I want to stay in touch with my college. More importantly, if I don't join this time, I think I will be more reluctant to join in the future.

Looking forward to this event! I am proud of being Wadhamite!

Jogging Path

Here is a nice jogging path near my home, it is a very nice place but I have tried it once only. Am too lazy when back to HK, no motivation and not energetic enough. Anyway, I will join Standard Chartered Marathon on 8 Feb 09.

Random snap in Hong Kong, looks nice, is it?

Little Nephew

I stayed in my sister's home for a night in order to play with my little nephew. Lack of chance seeing him grown up in this year, thus, I need to spend some time to build up a closer relationship with him. He is only two and a half but he is already a good cyclist.
Why he looks same as Chicken Little?

Laptop Repaired

I have fixed my laptop at Asus finally. The monitor is replaced for free and it just take me two days, so cool! I have the full screen now. Hong Kong is the best, efficient and economical.

Alarm Clock

Just realised that I haven't brought my alarm clock back to HK. Now I can sleep as much as I can in the morning, you can imagine how slack off I am now. In the past year, I disallow myself to sleep a lot because it's like wasting of time and money.

Hmm, after a second thought, why I allow myself to waste my time in HK, what's the difference?
