Learn Fun Facts’ 3rd Year Blogiversary


To everyone who reads this, I wish you a Happy New Year.

Time flies and just like that, Learn Fun Facts is now three years old. This blog is still a baby compared with other blogs. But I think that it’s something for a blog to reach three years.

2019 is the most uneventful year for Learn Fun Facts which was caused by a number of hiatuses (oh how I dislike that word) due to several reasons. I tried my best to continue blogging despite all the setbacks but I wasn’t that successful I suppose. Then I also have to substitute for my friend as a lecturer at a university here in Hong Kong (well, before all hell broke loose there last month) in addition to my regular work. All of these made my enthusiasm for blogging to wane.

I have been planning to kick off this year with a splash but unfortunately, I was informed yesterday that my grandmother suffered a massive stroke. She is in critical condition. So, I rushed to the hospital on the night of New Year’s Eve and I’m still there monitoring the situation. The doctors told me that there is an 80 percent chance of fatality but I am not losing hope and wishing for the best possible outcome.

I’m sure that 2020 will be more challenging than last year. Nonetheless, I’m still looking forward to it.

  1. I will light a candle and say a prayer for your grandmother. A fellow Blogger said this was a “seesaw kind of year” for Blogging. I have felt the same, my heart has not been in it, but 2020 is HERE, it’s a new year, a new focus. Hang in there – we are here to lift your spirits. We’ve missed you. Thanks for letting us know you are HERE even if you take a break, you’ll be BACK. I hope your grandmother will be Ok.

    1. Thank you. I appreciate that very much. 2019 was not a good year for me (and for HK too) so I’m looking forward to 2020 as the story may be different this time around. Nevertheless, I cherish all the little good things that happened to me last year. It’s important to have a positive outlook even during difficult times after all.

      I’m still at the hospital at this moment hoping to receive some good news.

      1. Your candle is lit, too bad I can’t attach a picture to show you. When you squeeze your grandmother’s hand it will be with the warmth and support of ALL of us who are behind you! I have some ill family and friends who are in their late 80s, early 90s, so I know what you are going through. It’s not easy! YOU were right to give “thanks” for some things from last year, we must always remember there are good things that happen along with the challenges.

        On Netflix, I am watching the movie, “The Two Popes,” it’s very good.

      2. Thanks. You don’t have to post a photo. Only knowing that you care is more than enough. So, again, thank you for doing this.

        Indeed, it is tough to be in this kind of situation. Ii seems that I can’t do anything to help, though I feel that me being there by her side somehow helps. So, I’ll just have to stay strong. Miracles do happen after all.

        In fact, just a few hours ago, she started talking, which surprised the doctors ( as they predicted that she won’t wake up for at least a few weeks, or at all). Her voice is faint but its intelligible, which is another welcome surprise. She even told me to go back home and have some rest!

        I’m currently subscribed at Hulu (I loop my subscription to different streamers every month or 2) so I’ll check if it’s available there. If not, then I’ll subscribe to Netflix again next month.

  2. I lost my husband and my mom in 2019 and understand how life can overwhelm you…while you’re living it. Sending congratulations on your blog’s anniversary, Edmark, and prayers of comfort and strength for you and your grandmother.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that. Losing a family member is painful. It would take some time before you can accept it but it’s still tough.

      Thank you for your concern and encouragement.

      Also, I wish you a Happy New Year.
