Welcome to my home page!
Brought up in a village near Nanhu, Jiaxing, a small town in Zhejiang Province, China, I lived in a very rural life for almost 18 years. My parents sent me to a school in the city when I was 9 years old, hoping to give me the best education that they can. I did not disappoint them. I was admitted to the Jiaxing No.1 middle school, a famous local senior middle school after all, where I met many talent students. It was my first time that I felt the stress and competitions to get into a good university.
I caught a cold on my “National College Entrance Exam”, which almost decide your future career and success in the old China days. I didn’t do well enough in the exam and I went to a local university Ningbo University in Zhejiang province. However, the times that I spent with my friends at university are some of the most unforgettable memories in my life.
Short after graduation, I went to Shanghai to pursue better career opportunities. With a bachelor degree from a not-so-famous university, it was not easy for me to find a good job there. Nevertheless, I managed to get a software engineer job in Shanghai. I worked there for about 2 years before moving to Tokyo in 2007.
So Why this blog is English? – You may find lots of grammar mistakes in this website as I created this blog originally for practicing my writing English.
I was shocked how bad was my writing at the time when I joined Morgan Stanley where English is the only working language.
