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. […]

Finally Negative

So that was fun… Finally, I have tested negative for COVID. Last Monday, I started to get a scratchy throat. Then by Tuesday, I had a bit of a fever. Wednesday and Thursday, I had a high fever. Then it was a lot of coughing and exhaustion. I didn’t actually […]

It’s Good News and Bad News

We received news yesterday that we would be able to continue on with online lessons for the international schools. We talked about it this morning in my advisory period. The kids felt so much better. They weren’t happy about the idea of having their summer break during a time that […]

Compulsory Testing

For some reason, they tested the sewers around our school. They found COVID in the sewers. Because of that, Bub and I had to go get tested (along with all of the students and staff at our school). They ended up canceling school for Thursday afternoon and all of Friday […]

Now It’s Our Turn…

They decided late last week that it was time for the secondary schools to go online. Thankfully, it’s only the last week before the Chinese New Year holiday. I am really worried about what this is going to mean for my students. There were so many that struggled with online […]

It Begins… Again… 5th Time…

We have seen an increase in COVID cases. 9 cases. Imported cases used to mean they were caught in the airport. Now, there are cases out there linked with the imported cases. Because of this, the EDB decided to put the primary schools online. Secondary schools remain in school thankfully. […]

Getting the First Jab

The vaccine was opened up to teachers a week or so ago. Shortly after that, the vaccine was opened up to helpers as well. H went to get her vaccine the day before. We went to the medical centre in Sha Tin. It was a gorgeous building. It was a […]

Teachers are Guinea Pigs?

Since Chinese New Year, we have been at 1/3 capacity at school. There has been an uproar from parents. About 200+ parents submitted a letter to our company. Now we are going full capacity, but the cost of that is all teachers have to be tested for Covid-19 every two […]
