Now I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, US. Just 3 hours south of Calgary by flying in a JETPLANE and it is sooo HOT here. During the summer months, the daily high is usually around 40C. But the winter is gorgeous. I just moved here in August. If I am correct, there is a WTA tour here in spring.
I am a full time mother! My son is now in grade 1. I moved here because my hubby's boss want him to work in the head office here. I am still recovering from the stress of the BIG MOVE. We moved within 3 months after the decision was made and during that period of time, my hubby spent half of his time in US. I still have some boxes in the garage that are not opened.
There´s an ATP tournament in Scottsdale as well. Its on week 10, one week before Indian Wells. Andre Agassi won it this year.
wooden jesus, can i be saved? i spent all my money on a future grave.. ill cut you in on 20% of my future sins..

Must have been a big move! I'm glad i dont rmemeber much from when we moved... i guess my mom must have been very stressed!!!!!!!
hehe, is your son playing tennis?
My hubby is also Chinese. We married and moved to Canada. Have a son and now moved to US. Although I grew up in big city like Hong Kong (around 6 million people when I lived there), I enjoyed living in Calgary which is a small city with about 770,000 people. The metro Phoenix here is over 2 million and I have to honestly say I like Calgary more.
My son wants to play everything. There is a tennis program but the schedule conflicts with his existing soccer games so may be he need to wait a little bit longer.
Hope you don't mind my asking whether you are a student or working now?

Scottsdale is one of the cities making up metro Phoenix. Last time I count, these are cities in the metro: Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Apache Junction, Glendale, Sun City, Sun City West, Peoria, and probably more. You had probably been in Scottsdale because this is the city with most tourists, resorts, golf course, etc.
I know leecal, but i wasn't visiting Phoenix as tourist but i was with some friends trying to make business with mexican handcrafts. I remember that we arrived to Phoenix and later we moved our butts to Tempe to see our gringo partner. I guess that i saw Scottsdale at the horizon.
Lee, right now - i am a full time student at the University of Oslo. I finished high school this spring - and jumped right over to the uni. after passing 2 exams, later in november and in december - i will take next semester off to work, make money and TRAVEL!!!! and then going back to Uni next fall!
Hi Marri, yeah, my son is full of energy. He is like Juan Carlos, very lean but strong.
Wow! I wish I am your age. Just wonder what your parents will think about you temporary get away from your study to travel. A lot of Chinese parents always want their children to focus on study. I think if my son want do the same thing as your plan, I will support him as long as he plan to return to school afterward.
hehehe, you are right, chinese parents are crazy but they don't mind me doing that - coz my uni is going through so many changes now... and the classes i wanna take - wont start until next fall - and i don't want to take some classes, Just to take them, you know. And they know thta i'm not a typical scholar like my brother.. i need this break... to find a nice lil job... have some money of my own.. and explore the real world
