  • Blog Post: Something More Than Just 5 Points of Extra Credit on Gerontology Class

    Like a good bit of my classmates, I went to a recording for a radio talk show for some extra credit in my Gerontology class. Unlike some of my classmates who decided to study up/hang around at school during the down time between school ended and the talk show began, I went home and grabbed a quick dinner...
  • Blog Post: Monster/Helicopter Parents and Their Children's Independence

    - part 1 - part 2 I think this is a problem that is less likely to happen in the U.S. (as parents in the U.S. tend to stress more about independence to their children very early). But, it is actually a rather common problem in Hong Kong. What is the problem? Well, this actually talks about "helicopter...
  • Blog Post: Perfectionism

    If you know me as a friend, I can be a very kind and compassionate person. However, if you know me as a student at school or when I am assigned to do a task involving something that I am or I should be good at, I consider myself more of a perfectionist... as I always have a tendency of thinking or working...
  • Blog Post: I couldn't believe a government official said this.

    http://hk.news.yahoo.com/article/110307/4/n2jy.html Prior to OT school, I never went to a lobbying event. I think it was because my parents never really know the reasoning behind lobbying.

    I think there is a good bit of you who have heard not only Dr. Clark, but also other previous AOTA presidents speak about the issue of advocacy for students and professionals. Well, the video above is actually a great example of how our pixel power can be in action. Sure, it is in Hong Kong and they...
  • Blog Post: Interesting Documentary About a Clinical Psychiatrist with Numerous Disabilities Growing Up

    I don't care if you don't understand Chinese. But, this is something actually an inspiring documentary. This is a documentary about a clinical psychiatrist who grew up with a host of diagnoses, with some that he didn't realize he has as he was growing up. Here are a host of his diagnoses...
  • Blog Post: In Light of These "My Meaningful Childhood Occupation" posts

    I have read a couple "My Favorite Childhood Occupation" posts. So, being the prolific writer that I am, I will write one for my own! I know the blog name will definitely give it away a bit. But, I still will tell my story. Bear with me here... as I will be translating some of the things I experienced...
  • Blog Post: A Physically Disabled Pianist Who Never Gave Up Her Dreams

    I first read about her when I stumbled on a Hong Kong news article, where she is recognized as one of the top 10 young people of Hong Kong this year. Then, when I heard about her experiences in this video (I apologize if you don't understand it.), I thought that it would be a good thing to share...
  • Blog Post: Reflecting on a Couple Pieces of Hong Kong News I Read Online

    For those of you who don't know me, I would read the news from Hong Kong from time to time. Aside from finding some seemingly "random" things that might be relevant to our OT class discussions, I actually want to make sure I still can read Chinese. The latter is important because it is...
