Evening In TST

We went to dinner in Tsim Sha Tsui. We went to The Cheesecake Factory in Harbor City. We didn’t leave until around 5 PM and restaurants are still only open to serve until 6 PM. We ended up taking an Uber there. We got there and in right away, but […]

COVID-19 Care Package

They had signs posted in the lifts for a while. I didn’t really see the point of getting it, though RATs are nothing to sneeze at. Definitely grateful for the tests and the masks. Those things are a big cost. The government had wanted to do universal testing in mid-March. […]

The numbers keep going up. We have been online schooling since Wednesday. It’s a bit disheartening. It is so much harder to manage students with academic challenges when it is through a computer screen. I feel like I’m chasing my tail at this point. We have had a few more […]

I Spoke Too Soon…

I spoke too soon. Today, we had 115 cases, and most of them are local in some way. The caveat is that a chunk of those are as a result of dance halls that have been operating and have ended up spreading the virus pretty far. We learned today that […]
