My desk in my room in Kaliningrad. I carry my family with me in my heart. The family photo was taken in February, 2009, when my sister Li Meng married her beau, Edward.
What is Robbie doing in Kaliningrad?
My close friend Huiwen drives the same model in Singapore. But she is not in the car, it is a Russian plate.
When you live abroad all on your own, it is easy to find something familiar that will link to what you have left behind at home, your loved ones, your friends, your colleagues, your memories. In time when loneliness starts to creep in, it is good even just to look at their pictures, especially the two little nephews, Robbie and Reuben.
It is a quiet day in Kaliningrad, sun shinning bright.
