Happy Year of the Dog 2018

Joshua, myself, and Peter at Oracle HQ

Happy year of the dog, Feb. 2018

Peter and I are both year of the dog so this should be a lucky year for us. Since we lost Peter's mom, Wanda Ching, in 2017 and my dad, Bill Chin-Lee, in late 2016, we're hoping 2018 will be better.

Quick update on each of us:
  • I continue as a manager of information development at Oracle and split my time between HQ in Redwood Shores, Pleasanton, and home.
  • Peter takes care of the house but spent four months last year in Arlington to help take care of his mom.
  • Joshua is in 10th grade and enjoys his online and in person classes at Foothill College in Los Altos. 
  • Vanessa lives in Guadalajara, MX, creating music, teaching English and learning Spanish, and consulting for
Vanessa debuted in her first music video, created by Quentin Lee. Please watch and share. You can ask her for links to her videos of Mexico, too. Her email:

Joshua created two videos of his month-long trip to Tokyo, earning his first $100 as third-place winner in Langubridge's video contest.
