Beijing Holiday

I’ve completed a video of our recent trip to Beijing.  It’s about 10 mins long.  We had a great time there and we were really impressed with the progress that China has made.  The scale of development in infrastructure and technology leaves cities like Melbourne and Singapore behind! Now if only they can clean up [...]

Mary and I attended the convocation ceremony and I essentially ended up being her photographer for the day. She got many of her friends to come down for photos with her. After the ceremony, the family had a nice celebratory dinner at Kotaraya. Photos of the convocation [...]

Mary’s 50th Birthday Surprise

We celebrated Mary’s 50th this Saturday. We had a nice family dinner at Kotaraya.  When I had my 50th, my wife threw me a surprise party. Now it’s almost impossible for me to surprise Mary so soon after my own surprise party. So the only thing I could think of was to compile a 50th Birthday [...]

Julian’s WuShu grading

Ren went for his Wu Shu grading on Saturday. I have no idea at this point if he passed, but the whole thing was quite fascinating. I put together a short video of his grading below.
