Out of the 365 days of a year, I am home for about 35 days on average each year for last 3 years. Every time I come home, so many things remain the same, and yet, so many things have changed.
June 14: We had the honor to visit Microsoft R&D Headquarter in Herzliya, Israel yesterday and listen to Ed Mlavsky, basically the father of Israel’s venture capital industry, and Yoram Yaccovi, the General Manager of Microsoft Israel R&D Center.
July 9th. Our only group activity was a luncheon at 2pm in Sarona market. The lunch went well with some amazing pasta and we didn’t get lost. We were smart enough to follow a big group. (I also paid for some data on my phone to make sure I do not stray in the city again.)
On July 8, around 4 o’clock in the evening, I, as a participant of Israel Summer Business Academy with Washington University in St. Louis, arrived at Ben-Gurion airport with the rest of my program fellows. The flight was 9hr 44min, which was doable compared to the long flights I have to take to go back to HongKong from the U.S.
As a huge egg lover, it has been a shame for me to have never been able to make a perfect breakfast omelette. But no more! The history has been rewritten! I made it!
It is the first week of summer. I am feeling like an overspeed express train stopping at a station: cooling down, blowing off the steam, and slowly loading up for another run. Now that I look back, I haven’t had such a peaceful and idle evening for a long time. It’s raining outside right now in Fort Lauderdale, and I am sitting in the swing chair in the living room, sipping on water.
