A goal is a dream with a deadline

I found out some old letters from friends and one of them caught my eye.

He wrote in the letter for sharing a quote with me:

“I don’t live in either my past or my future. I”m interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man. Life will be a party for you, a grand festival; because life is the moment we are living now.”

I doubt he will find out my blog but truly want to say thank you for sharing. At least for now it means a lot to me. Sometimes thinking too far ahead could take a lot of one’s attention and make one fail to appreciate what he has at present.

I started my PM rotation a few week ago and the first task was to help out a project in Hong Kong. It is a cloud project that will servers a million of customers, which is quite exciting. I stayed in CyberPort, a very quiet and peaceful place, located in the very south of Hong Kong island. And that’s also where the office located. From office, you could enjoy nice sea view. And Hong Kong office has a lot of local drinks, even a machine making milk tea. Read the rest of the post…

Half Day tour in Bulgaria

I had half day time in Bulgaria to tour around the city. It was a sunny Thursday afternoon, nice and relax.

This was Alxander Nevski Church in Sofia, one of the attractions. It was completed by 1912 and as built as a memorial to the 200,000 Russian soldiers who died in the Russo-Turkish Liberation War. I happen to pass by this place at night as well. I love the round shape top and the shinning gold. Read the rest of the post…

Bulgaria Microsoft Techdays 11 – sofia

This is my first English travel blog. I was being lazy and always prefer to record whatever happen in my life through my lens. But this time, I felt like writing something. Maybe I was inspired by Rob Miles, who is a very funny professor I met from UK in this conference. The way he blogged the event makes me feeling like doing it as well.

I could never imagine end up in Bulgaria. By the time I confirmed my sessions with this conference, i don’t even know where exactly Sofia locates. And here I come. Read the rest of the post…
