I am from Hong Kong and am doing my second MA degree (the first is in Chinese Literature and History when I was in Hong Kong) at UBC in my retirement. My research topic is about the influence of a Ming scholar on Tokugawa Japan, specifically on the development ideologies such as that of Sonnō jōi (尊皇攘夷 Revere the emperor, expel the barbarians) in Japan. 

I like to read, cook, eat and travel. As sport I used to play badminton, tennis, but now spend more time in Tai Chi.
