5 years in Hong Kong!

It’s been 5 years since we made the decision to relocate to Hong Kong.  We’ve resigned to the fact we would try our best to post this annual update (which is quite a task in itself) to somehow keep this blog alive… and hopefully add some sporadic posts too.

Let’s start with some Frequently Asked Questions people have been asking during this season…

Donate Your Birthday

I had the pleasure of being a part of a promo video produced by The Vine to raise awareness of and to support refugee families residing in Hong Kong.  Instead of receiving gifts on your birthday, why don’t you fund-raise on behalf of the marginalised and needy?

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

If you are able to help out, donate by clicking here.  Big thanks to all cast and crew as well as family and friends for your support!

Selwyn is 1!

It’s 15 minutes past midnight and today Selwyn has officially turned 1!  We cannot be more blessed with this amazing bundle of joy, cuteness and cheekiness!  We thank God for His love for us and perhaps the biggest lesson we have learnt (and are still learning) is the measure of God’s love for us.  We love Selwyn for who he is, not for what he has achieved… God loves is in a similar way, just on an immeasurably greater scale!

This video was shown at Selwyn’s early party celebration a couple days ago.  It was taken at a photo-shoot back in February…. he was only 9 months then… and since then he has changed quite a lot (like his crawl doesn’t look as haphazard!)  Please enjoy!

4 years in Hong Kong!

Ok, we haven’t been updating our blog for a while and even less so with the arrival of Selwyn!  Nonetheless, we hope to at least celebrate the anniversary (26th April) of our relocation from Australia with these milestones! Read More…
