Did you know....? Look, Ma!

There will be no card to share today. Instead I thought it would be fun to share something that you did not know about me and my family. I was prompted by this question at Hero Arts Fickr discussion thread (see here). I think I will start this feature in my blog called : Did you know.... And I will share fun things with you once in a while...how is that? So here is my first time feature.
We met the world-famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma in March 2008.
Meeting Yo-Yo Ma
Our former neighbor (who is the CEO of a world-renowned tech company) had a private event and he invited Yo-Yo Ma to this exclusive event. AND my family were invited!

It was too bad that I didn't have photo with Yo-Yo Ma. We were all so star-struck.... I was lost for words, as you can imagine.  Yo-Yo was all sweet and kind...just like his amazing and dazzling cello performance! You can tell...my kids were THRILLED.  He is their cello idol! 

I'll be back on Wednesday to share a Father's Day project with you. Hope you visit me soon.

Wow...how exciting to meet Yo Yo Ma! Look at your kids' faces! Pure joy!! I've only seen him on Sesame Street and that was exciting for me!

One of our TV news anchormen does a "Do you know..." spot at the end of each telecast and we always look forward to hearing his little anecdotes. Now I'm looking forward to your posts as well!
