Dr. Chun Yu Ma is one of 27 authors, successful scholars and professionals who currently live in North America, but all graduated from Hunan Normal University in the early 1980s. They shared their stories and long journeys to the U.S. and Canada, how they had stood up on their fathers’ shoulders and gone though the difficult times, some with help from their less fortunate and under educated siblings, to have become who they are today. This book is a collection of 27 inspirational, history oriented stories that reflected the history and culture of Hunan and China in the past 3 decades.

Celebrate Canada Day in Oliver and Osoyoos BC

As our annual tradition, 15 families with kids celebrate Canada’s 151 birthday by travelling all way down to Oliver BC, camping in Hillside Orchards U-Pick farm, experiencing local cultures, watching Osoyoos Cherry Fiesta Parade roll down the main street, and viewing the magic and incredible natural phenomenon of Spotted Lake.

It is great to call this great country “our home”.

“Cherries are the first harvest of the year.”
