Great Manchester Run - Thanks!!!

On 20th May, I completed my first charity run! It is only the 2nd time in my life I run 10km, the 1st one was a practice few days before the real run! haha... 1:01:24 is not a great time, but not bad for a first timer I think.

Thanks to everyone who has either sponsored or supported me. I had a great day. Good exercise and 200 pounds for charity. Great!

Just to prove that I actually completed the run, here are some photos and the certificate. The photos are only thumbnails as these pictures are taken by the official photographer and they charge a fortune for the full size pictures and I refuse to pay.

Cornwall Trip

The easter weekend was fantastic! Great weather and I have a great trip to cornwall! For those who do not know, Cornwall is a county at the southwest of England. I heard a lot about it and this is the first time I actually visited the place. Sunshine, nice beaches, beautiful farm houses, delicious fish and chip, scenic walk........ I can go on and on. I don't really like to write, let the pictures do the talking......

Trip to London

I had a very good trip to London last weekend. I spent 2 nights there and met up with many friends. Also some really nice food too..... fabulous Thai duck curry, dim sim on a floating restaurant and Singapore laksa!

Unfortunately I did not bring my camera with me. So have to wait for my friend to send me some photo.

UK Specialist Training Recruitment in Chaos

This has become so ridiculous that I think it is worth a mention here. It is too complicated for me to explain it. It is well covered in the news. See links below. These are just a few of many articles.




And this little nice cartoon on the Telegraph.

The Year of Golden Pig!

Today is the first day of chinese new year. We went down to Chinatown for celebration. Not a bad celebration I have to say. Lots of people and good performances! I am most impressed by the lion dance. Althought it is done by caucasians, it is actually really good!

Depressing News - Doctor Died

A Pakistani doctor who challenged the legality of changes in immigration rules requiring foreign doctors and dentists to obtain work permits has died. A High Court judge, upholding the new rules, said Dr Imran Yousaf, who had run up huge debts after failing to get a UK job, took his own life.

My deepest condolence. May he RIP.
