Just took Cayenne swimming at Silver Strand Beach. It was such a nice afternoon, water was clear and not that many people. I am so glad I took Cayenne for swim class at an early age. Now she enjoys swimming and she loves crawling on the sand. She learned how to dive in the water and do a small swim from A to B. I highly recommended Harry Wright Swim Class. Everyone saw her at the beach and thinks that she is so brave at a young age. I think every kid is capable of swimming and doing everything, you just need to expose them to all the possibilities. I am very conscious of not influencing her on my own fear.
Like Skiing, I would love to be good at it but my fear completely over power everything when I am on the ski slope. Therefore, after numerous tries, I made a conclusion that I am happier as a ski bunny having hot cocoa at the lodge. But I really hope Cayenne will take after her dad and will enjoy skiing.

New Beginning

This blog is my food for thoughts about family life, work, and most importantly food and restaurant experience.

To begin, lets talk a little bit about my life. My immediate family consist of Jonathan, my husband , Cayenne my 11 months old daughter, Molly my black lab and my nanny/housekeeper Lina. Watching Cbeebies with Caye while thinking how my life has changed since her birth, I cannot help but wonder, what is my next move. I have always been a career oriented person but ever since I found out I was pregnant with Cayenne, that button just got turned off! It is until recently that it has come back on and itching to be pushed again. Still, I am more confused than ever! I don't quite fit in to the full time motherly figure, yet I am not interested in the career woman idea. After living in the US for 15 years, Jonathan and I moved to Hong Kong( my home town) about a year ago. Very dramatic, I lost my beloved my french bull dog meimei, gave birth to Cayenne, helped Jonathan get through numerous job interviews and his EMBA admission, adjusting to HK lifestyle and attitude, the death of my Grandmother and on and on all in one year! Win or lose, give and take... lets begin!
