Weekend Reading – Summer vacation edition

After spending a week in hot and humid Asia last week, I sure am glad to be back in Vancouver where the word “hot” summer days typically consists of temperature in the mid 20’s. It’s certainly much more enjoyable than the 33C with 90% humidity that feels like 45C I experienced in Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

Next week we’ll spend some time in the Okanagan enjoying some much needed R&R. I’m looking forward to getting some freshly picked fruits and spending more time with Mrs. T and the kids. Both Baby T1.0 and Babby T2.0 are learning new things daily. Just this week, Baby T1.0 started asking “Daddy how’s your day?” when I get home from work; At 4 month, Baby T2.0 is almost rolling from her back to front. It’s certainly an interesting time here in Casa de Tawcan. 🙂

Here are some great articles I’ve come across recently.
