Hong Kong Police Certificate

For the Hong Kong Police Certificate, there really isn’t too much to say on the application because HK police department is really clear and efficient on what needs to be provided. Relative links are here:

Hong Kong Police Force

One thing that could create confusion is the mailing address of the IRCC case processing center. As you know the Hong Kong police department by regulation cannot issue a certificate to the applicant, instead it has to be mailed to the immigration office directly. Firstly of all, you have to find out which office is processing your case. For example my case is being processed by the Ottawa office. While I searched the internet to find the correct address, there were some misleading ones like below:

219 Laurier Avenue West, 7th floor, section B, Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1A 1L1

Note: the above address is the WRONG address. I called the 219 Laurier Avenue West, turns out that was the OLD address of IRCC and it’s currently under construction as of Apr 2017. Sending mails there will not get your mails delivered to IRCC.

The new and correct address of IRCC Ottawa case processing center is:

365 Laurier Avenue West, Ottawa, ON, Canada, K1A 1L1

Typically it takes four calendar weeks for the mail to be delivered. So once IRCC grands you with 60 days till the deadline, you’d better apply no later than 30 days since the request.

Note: this blog is posted on Apr 2017 and please double check if they updated the mailing address

The Art of the Deal (mind map)

The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump with Tony Schwartz (1987)

Here is Trump in action—how he runs his business and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and changes the face of the New York City skyline. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated eleven guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest deals; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker’s art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it.

Chopin’s F minor Concerto: Larghetto

Second movement of Chopin Concerto #2 in F minor (Zimerman)

Chopin Concerto No.2 Op.21

A passage of classical music that I practiced myself and listened to for hundreds of times. Today as I put on my earphone, tears emerge in my eyes and tears drop along my cheek. For the first time, I finally began to understand, appreciate, and indulge myself into a feeling. A feeling that is so sincere, ardent, and infectious that deeply touchs my heart.

What, on earth, is love?

Love is a feeling.

It is a feeling of heart bumping because of someone special.

It is a feeling of being marveled and captivated by the most delicate and beautiful image you’ve ever seen.

It is a feeling of an urgent desire to open up your heart to her with your deepest and honest feels.

It is a feeling of being brave and courageous to take action and make things happen.

It is a feeling of fear like butterflies in your stomache in case what lies ahead isn’t what you expected.

It is a feeling of igniting a forceful and ever-growing lust as if kindled fire flares up everywhere.

It is a feeling of a desire to seize and protect what will become the other half of you in a palace built with flame of passion.

It is a feeling of ecstasy to create a world with her that is full of hope, full of romance, and full of excitement.

It is a feeling of being thankful to God for bringing to your world a most adorable and precious gift.

It is the feeling of falling in love.

Chopin encountered his fellow student Constantia during his study in music school. Constantia’s vivid singing voice and beauitful figure occupied the young composer’s mind and gave him unbridled inspirations for his first concerto. The concerto’s debut was in 1830 where the second movement, the Larghetto, bears Chopin’s depiction of Constantia and his heart. It remained, in the end, a distant infatuation. Chopin carried on with his affection for this concerto which eventually inspired many other composers later on.
