A so call "Seasoned IT Professional" who has worked for over 26 years in the Information Technology / Financial industry. One day it came to mind that should I continue to work in a fast lane or take a break.
Without any hesitation, I quit my job and start my new life.
Last Sunday's weather was not very stable. A hot sunny day but with occasional thunderstorm moving across the region as advised by the Hong Kong Observatory.
Instead of taking a long endurance journey, the group opted to ride on a short relaxing trip to the old fishing village, Sam Mun Tsai.
Schedule for my boy's Experiential Learning Journey in Singapore is quite tight. Students have to visit a secondary school, attend STEM related training at Singapore Polytechnic, doing programming work and finally present their works.
My boy is going to Singapore for a 4-Day Experiential Learning Journey.
He has never been aboard without the company of us and this is the first time he is on his own along some of his classmates and teachers. A challenge to him as well as to us.
Baguette is one of the most difficult breads to make and ongoing practice is a must for beginners like me.
My oven is a small one which can't handle the usual length of 65 cm, so I am going to make a short Baguette instead.
I love fig, especially those dried figs.They are delicious and rich in dietary fibre.
Back in the good old days when I was young, I like eating Fig Rolls - a sweet biscuit filled with fig paste in the middle.
To fill my dream of eating fig, I decided to bake a fig bread today.
When looking for ways to get ride of one's fats and reclaim the once slim body figure, people usually consider having some vigorous exercise like running, swimming, going to gym plus taking up one of those energy conscious diets.
In fact, fat burning does not necessary required vigorous exercise. Cycling for longer distance at a suitable intensity can also help to get the same result.
Today is 10 June 2018, Sunday and with highest temperature over 35ºC. What a hot and sunny day!
After a week of heavy rain and tropical typhoon, its time for outdoor activities again.
With two of my cycling buddies, we went on a ride to Ngau Tam Mei near Yuen Long.
The 23rd of March of the Lunar Calendar is the birthday of Tin Hau (or Mazu in Taiwan). According to informal historical recording, she was born in China around the 10th century and was later became the Goddess of the Sea.
This year, the Tin Hau birthday (or Tin Hau Festival) was on 8 May 2018. There are various celebration activities held by local communities in Yuen Long, Tuen Mun and several traditional fishing villages.
On last Saturday, my family and I visited Sai Kung, an old fishing village in Hong Kong, and had a glimpse into one of the local celebration events.
