To all our dear friends.. May I apologize for not been able to up-date you for nearly four weeks.. Migrating is such a major tasks. Please note that I'd been missing you all!!!

We had left Shenzhen China for good last April 27, 2009 via Japan. We were able to visit our family in Vancouver before we moved on to our final destination. Now we are settled and having the best times of our lives here in Ontario Canada.

2 days after we arrived, my husband had found a job in Aristokrat Restaurant as a musician while after 8 days, I became employed as store manager to GCF Food Services Inc. We are so thankful to God for this opportunity. We cannot thank the Almighty enough.

My dearest friends, I hope to up-date you as much as I can but living and working in Canada is highly different compared to China and Hong Kong. My work now is more challenging. I cannot use my time mostly to myself this time unlike before where I can up-date you as often as I want. Here I gotta work much harder. But don't worry, I will do my best to see you every night. You're all such important part of my life as always..

See you soon my dearest friends..

OH my goodness..I was so delighted to see that comment from you! NO apologies are necessary. Everyone knows you are in the middle of a transition!
My email address is I was not sure which address you meant...?? You didn't mean my home address did you? Just in case, it is 8941 Concord Ave, Riverside, CA 92503.
I am just happy to see you are getting settled!

Wow! Congratulations for these achievements, Tita Loida! o",)

Bonnie said...

Congrats on a successful move to Canada. Good for you both in getting jobs right away and good ones too. That is so wonderful. Have missed your posts, welcome back!


Ken said...

hahaha, at namiss namin kayo!

It was a long time for followers like us here.

Congratulations for the new home and the new jobs!

We will be waiting for you in PEBA 2009.

Missy said...

I missed you Ate Loids! I hope you're doing better now and congrats you found a job that quick! I can't wait to read your post from Canada. Take care.

aurbie said...

Yea. Loida is back! We sure have missed you. Thanks for the email updates, though. At least I knew you were OK.

I can't imagine all the trouble moving to another country would be. It is hard enough to move to another house a few states away.

You look a little cold in those jackets. When does summer arrive there?

We are looking forward to seeing you rejoin our Friday shoot outs. Next week, the theme is water. So we hope you can find a water puddle or two in the area to show off.

Gotta run off out. Welcome back to the Blogosphere!

LOIDA, oh my gosh, I was sooooo thrilled to see your comment on my recent post and know that things are okay with you and yours there in Canada. I have been missing you big time!!! I can only imagine how difficult the transition was for you, I have done it when I moved to Germany, but I was alone and had to worry only about myself. you have a whole family to settle in. So happy to hear that you found a job and hubby too!! No fretting about catching us all up on the latest, just worry about yourself and the rest will fall into place. We will be here when you have the time to post every once in a while. And we will very HAPPILY be reading about how life now is for you in Canada!! take care, dear friend, and sending a hug your way, Debby
