A-Sum from Hong Kong

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.
