It’s Been Awhile

Hello Readers, It has been awhile. Surprise, surprise! This 6-month gap is becoming the norm it would seem. It is not that I haven’t had anything to write about; in fact the last 6 months have been rather eventful. Many blogs have been started and discarded over the period. But here I am back to…

Still excited about the fact that the Jays came back from 2-0 series to win it. I have only been able to get highlights out here in HK, but if they make it to the World Series (fingers crossed) I may have to find a way to live stream the games. Let’s Go BlueJays!!
