This past monday, May 4th, one of my ex-co-workers from CCS at the University of Guelph was enroute to Taipei with his sister. They were flying standby so they were forced to take a flight from Toronto to Vancouver via WestJet, then transfer onto a China Airlines flight direct to Taipei.
I worked with Tim Lee for an entire year at the IT Helpdesk. He graduated in April 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in bio-med. Anyways, if it weren’t for twitter, I would have never had known he was here.
I believe that his is far more addicted to twitter than I am!
To keep this short. I whipped out my blackberry and messaged him via blackberry messenger and we quickly found something to do even though we only had about 2 hours before he needed to check-in for his 14-hour flight to Taipei.
Unfortunately it was a super wet and rainy night in Vancouver, but we made the most of it. I took him for a quick bite to eat at Hons Wun-Tun House in Richmond, then gave them a quick tour of the Richmond Olympic Speed Skating Oval on the way back to the Airport.
It was a very quick but lovely visit. Hopefully he’ll be back soon so I can give him a quick update of Vancouver’s last few year’s of construction and Olympic fever.
