COVID-19 Updates: Message from the President

Dear Friends, It’s hard to believe that it is already mid-July, which I have marked with a two-week (happy) quarantine, as my 17-month-old granddaughter arrived from the U.K. with her parents.

Giving back to the community through cooking

In February, I moved to Toronto from Dubai, where I used to work for a foreign bank. I moved to Toronto seeking a better and more permanent life. My brother and my wife’s family also live here.

Cutting hair for care

Cutting hair for care

Since barber shops and hair salons are going to stay closed for a while, my roommate Kevin Ho and I decided to buy our own hair clippers, try cutting our own hair and livestream our very first attempt. We’ve always wanted to do something to help support our frontline health care workers, and coincidentally we saw North York General Hospital’s (NYGH’s) ad on Facebook during that time.
