10-Year Review

It’s a fabulous Sunday. Happiness is brewing inside. In one of the darkest moments in life. I celebrate the completeness of life experience. Seeing the world is nice but it’s nothing compared to seeing the hearts, minds and souls. It’s like the moment when “Chappie” visualized the consciousness on a computer screening. It’s like seeing the invisible, a miracle, supernatural, and spectacular.

Many people started to come back. Many old friends, colleagues, and family members, making my heart warm and my days bright.

I miss my family. Flying back home to see them later this month. Speaking of them, I always feel proud to be born into a family who are ordinary outside but extraordinary inside. I am proud I have their blood running through my veins. I have their spirit now, exactly what my parents have wanted when I was born. 🙂

For the longest time my parents and I were disconnected after being separated from each other for more than ten years. They couldn’t recognize this English-speaking girl wearing high heels, makeup and nail polish was once their little girl whom loves reading, drawing and playing piano.  

Many things had happened, much time had passed but I am still the same. In the past decade, life may have shaped me on the outside but I remain the same inside. My parents see it now. And I see them. I could even mirror their joy when we spoke on the phone. It is a blessing and the truth – when you see what’s inside, the world becomes transparent. There will be no more blindness, no more lies. And then the truth will finally set you free.

Ph.D. in Economics with interests in Life Science, Behavioral Science, Health Economics Evaluation and Health Technology Assessment. Executive MBA student at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business in Hong Kong, graduating in 2020.


  1. “little girl whom loves reading, drawing and playing piano” — think I should leave out the love playing piano part… I didn’t love playing piano until much later. 😛
