Honestly, a Little Nervous in China With South Sea Political Debates

So I rarely get into politics on my blog – but this is hitting home a bit. The recent news about The Hague favoring the Philippines on the discrepancy on the South China Sea and where China can claim its land has scared me. Seems to me more of a military positioning thing – that China wants to be able …

Settling Back In China, My Long Term “Home”?

Been back in Asia now for a few days. Still catching my breath from the US. Life is a beautiful thing. Having a family is a beautiful thing. Having family spread across the globe is a complicated thing! This trip was mostly a personal trip, to have my family back home meet my son for the first time. Miles can …

Arrived in USA

Back in good old USA safe and sound. Arrived Friday morning local San Francisco time. So blessed to have arrived here safely and smoothly. Landed 9:45am local time, about 45 minutes late due to not leaving Hong Kong on time. Was told it was due to air traffic control delaying planes from leaving the runway. Have to admit, I have …

Happy July 4th From China

Another July 4th in China. This year had a bit of a different style to it. The US Embassy invited me to Guangzhou for the Celebration of the 239th year of the United States of America.

How I Filed a USA Passport for my Baby Born in China

Been pretty actively getting questions, comments, and phone calls from friends about how I filed a USA passport for my 2 week old son that was born in China.  While my baby was born in China, this process is the same for anywhere outside of the United States of America. It’s a rather straight forward process.  The main thing to …

Sharing a USA Experience Through A Chinese Person’s Eyes

I’m still recovering from jet lag and just pure exhaustion from the 33 day USA roadtrip – back in China now for a bit over a week. And my wife Wangxia (Wendy) spent each day making a daily dairy (in Chinese) and has finally compiled and released it. She sent it to me this Sunday afternoon and I had to …

Conclusions from My USA Roadtrip

Typing this email up on my airplane from San Francisco to Seoul, Korea. Airplane rides are always kind of like a “transition” from one place to another, one state of mind to another. And I’ve been digesting the last 1 month in USA. Definitely an invaluable experience, and as always in my life – a mix of business and personal …

Hyper-Fast Memory Lane in Hartford, Connecticut

Nice to see Everyone, but so quick! Like a world wind tour – on this USA tour I am on I booked a few days in the city I was born and raised – Hartford, Connecticut. Also was nice that it worked out to be during Chinese New Years week – so the emails and workflow slowed down a little …

Planning Much Overdue USA trip: Jan 17 to Feb 19, 2014

Haven’t been to America since 2012 (went 2 times, once in Aug 2012 for sister’s wedding, and May 2012 for Startup Weekend Seattle / west coast) and 2011 that I was in the east coast of USA! So seems all of this year, 2013, I won’t have been to America once…not the first full year overseas, but still something worth …

Why USA Internet and China Internet will continue to Separate

Note: Amy / Melissa please do not translate this blog post to my Chinese blog as is may be too sensitive and might be blocked inside Chinese internet. Honestly I hope this English blog isn’t blocked due to this post (or hacked…). Honestly, I will try not to write anything offensive or against Chinese government here – I am just …

More USA University Connections Visiting me in China

I think one of the most valuable things about going to a university is the networking you get there. While I did do a decent amount of networking while at Stevens Tech – I wish I had done even more. Got a message from Josh Lanning, who was also in the Greek fraternity life in Steven (not a Delt like …

Back in China, Summary + Reflections from USA trip

Saturday afternoon typing from my desk at Chaihuo makerspace in Shenzhen, China. Totally buried in emails, chats, notepads, namecards surrounding me. I FREAKIN’ love it! – as much as I get stressed, jet lagged, overwhelmed, emotional….I just love this hyper-active traveling and international business. This USA trip was a defining one for me. Really a bridge, meeting blog readers on …
