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. […]

I Can’t Believe This Plant

This plant was bought for me in about May 2019. B got it for me not long after I caught him cheating as some sort of apology. I can’t remember if it was before or after he tried to keep her. It doesn’t really matter. That was the worst day. […]

Free at Last!

Once we were sure no one else was going to get sick and tested negative, I went to see M. We only went to her house for dinner and went for a hike. It had been such a long time since M and I had been able to see each […]

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 […]

It was shared in our teacher group last night that there was an announcement from the Chief Executive. There were a few things that were announced. The first thing had to do with the mandatory testing. It looks like they want every person in Hong Kong to get tested three […]

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 […]
