I'll let the picture below explain the relevance of today's posting...
Er, yes. Well - actually no - it's tomorrow but, never mind, that day has arrived.
Life begins (hopefully) or as YY puts it (dolefully)
As recently as 4 years ago, I had never been to Asia and didn't know a single word of Chinese (beyond Chicken Foo Young). The idea that I would becelebrating my 40th birthday in Hangzhou, married to YY, have an (almost) three month old baby and be running a Chinese company wasn't really where I saw myself going. Still - it's all good. Really, really good in fact.
I also (and the reason this post is a day early) never imagined that I would be spending my 40th birthday by getting up at 5am so I could catch an 8am flight to Hong Kong with the express purpose of spending the rest of the day studying Financial Accounting.
Funny the tangled webs we weave.
