Thank you for sharing your 豐盛的劍橋人生

Hi Dominic,

I received the book this afternoon and finished reading it before dinner! It's such a delightful read. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your 豐盛的劍橋人生。我覺得你的分享寫的很真實真誠。樸實無華,生動有趣。 書中有好幾處的細節令我發出會心的微笑。很自然的產生共鳴更甚至感同身受。其中亦有不少的描寫勾起自己對過去數年大學生活的回憶。當我讀到你痛失好友阿Sir,也感到心酸。那麼年輕, 生命才剛剛開始啊。 但他曾追夢也曾圓夢,生命雖短, 卻也稱得上是不枉此生。大學生涯確是人生最燦爛的時光, 也是人生最美好的回憶。我深信你的書- 八載劍橋, 是你給自己, 家人和朋友的一份永恆的,珍貴的禮物。感激你的分享。 謝謝。


BTW, not very good at typing in Chinese. Couldn't work out how to get the right punctuation marks i was looking for. Never mind.

p.s. Pigeon Hole-- pre-email age, 我幾乎已經把它完全忘記了!LOL!

Just finished your book! I really enjoyed it!!

Just finished your book! I really enjoyed it!! I have been to Cambridge several times and yes, it is a such a beautiful place. But I think what impressed me the most are your reflections - sort of the 'teachable moments' that you remember from being there. I think it is awesome that you've been able to capture not only the details of your experiences but all the emotions that came along with it! Like the wait for your acceptance and scholarship, that gut wrenching anxiety was pretty much my experience in waiting for school acceptances.

I also think is cool how you've pin pointed the pivotal point which changed your life forever - essentially, your parents' decision to send you to boarding school... I think many of us do have those moments when in hindsight, was pretty much the biggest course changing event...

I can just imagine how proud your parents must be - with everything you've done and all your accomplishments. Now that I am a mom, I definitely think about what are the best ways for me to nurture curiosity in my daughter - which I think is the most fundamental element in many successful and happy people I know! And clearly, I think your parents have done such an amazing job to nurture that constant curiosity which you carry all the time -

Anyways - just some thoughts for your book - I am so proud of you and thanks for sending me a signed copy :)
