The Family Bonding In Southeast Asia Definitely more “cowboys and indians” style here in Southeast Asia compared to the last few years in Shenzhen. Actually it is mind-blowing to think how fast Shenzhen, China developed from seeing things like this photo featured today into a police state where nothing like this seems even possible anymore. I took the photo in …

Saturday American Breakfast My wife is amazing. Life is amazing. Saturday morning is again my favorite time of the week – pancakes, and today even bacon.

Browsing Facebook (often times I try so hard to not get distracted) there was a good one from Anna Wong of Female Entrepreneurs Worldwide (FEW) that shows a screenshot of a phone screen with a notification that “mom” is calling (the person’s contact name is mom). It went on to say that we need to pick this up – no …

Appreciate Your Parents

In blog, family friends by Michael Michelini6 Comments

I know I have talked about this before- but it is so true – you really appreciate your parents once you become a parent yourself. Especially since I’m a “single dad” right now – it is overwhelming.
