Week 11 and my Cantonese is coming on thanks to the infinite patience of my tutor! In some ways, Cantonese is an easy language to learn because there are no tenses and everything is related to eating. In other ways it is fraught with flashing neon danger signs. Slight changes in intonation result in wildly different meanings. For example, ‘Gau’ is the number 9… and also dog… and also something too rude to mention.

Which totally explains the constipated expression on my vet’s face when I’ve been making innocent conversation about the welfare of my dog…

You filthy gau!
Just pop in to your local vet’s!

Something magical happened to me today that illustrates that magic is real and all around us. I received an email from a former fellow inmate at the Priory Lunatic Asylum in Bristol, where I graduated with a First in bipolar disorder in 2011. He was an addict and I gave him my lucky token with Carpe Diem engraved on it because it seemed to me (rightly or wrongly because I was very manic) that he had an even bigger mountain to climb than I did. The token was given to me by a friend and mentor who passed away from an aneurysm some years ago. But his magic lives on because he gave it to me and I gave it to another who gave it to others. We all have magic but it only really works if you share it with others. Never forget that you are magic and to pay it forward with a simple act of kindness. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

After reading my first poem for the first time at the HKU Libraries Reading Club and (thanks to your prayers) managing to avoid going full-on Aled and singing it, more potential peril looms yonder this week when I’ll be sneaking into RTHK to record War of Voices for Dr. Ahmed Elbeshlawy‘s Voice Your Passion poetry channel!

The poem was published by Proverse Publishing and Chinese University Press April 22, 2021 after miraculously winning a place in the 2020 Proverse Poetry Prize anthology, Mingled Voices 5. I’ll be uploading the link here as soon as it’s up!!!

Another amazing accolade from my friends in the migrant community: a certificate of recognition from Bethune House for being Top Fundraiser canvassing for their Coins for Bethune appeal! Delivering breakfast to the residents of Bethune House is one of the highlights of my week and I could not be prouder to support their inspirational work sheltering migrants in need!🙏 🙏🏽 🙏🏿

Thanks to everybody @HomeKongKitchen (especially Mojo who did most of the dog work) who gave so generously to support this brilliant initiative raising funding for migrants in Hong Kong! 💜 💜 💜

This might be my fave photo hack ever! Mainly because the SCMP did make their cartoon of me an uncanny cross of Camilla Parker-Bowles and… her horse.
