For the past 10 days, we've had a special visitor in our house. Sum (Phoebe) Ho from Hong Kong came to visit us and trek around Europe. For those of you that visited us, you will probably remember A-Sum. She was frequently at our house and always did a lot to help our foreign guests. She is like our daughter. And we spent a lot of time together, even once vacationing in Thailand together.
A-Sum's pretty adventurous. She's traveled to all sorts of interesting places in Asia and Europe. I had always wanted to get her and Sze Man to visit Costa Rica. I knew they would love it. Prior to visiting us in Berlin, A-Sum trekked around Italy and Holland. But she said she made the trip to see us: Awww.
Marco has loved having A-Sum around for the past few days. His "jeh-jeh" (big sister) has been a lot of fun to play with, and has listened to his endless stories, which are....truly....uhm endless.
We went to Chinese food a few days ago in Berlin. That was kind of funny....ordering Cantonese food at a Cantonese restaurant with A-Sum. It was pretty good, but nothing compared to Hong Kong standards and so much more expensive. A-Sum managed to find the only Chinese restaurant in Berlin that makes Marco's favorite Cantonese dish---Cha Siu Bau. She spent a lot of time on the internet trying to find a place for her little brother to eat.
Above is a picture of Phoebe taken at that Chinese restaurant.
