Mei's Story

Mei's Story


Mei Ling was born in Shanghai, China where she learned to laugh and play and cry and sneeze. Kids would often tease her for her inability to sneeze naturally, but Mei Ling knew that one day she would get married and sneezing would no longer be an issue.

She came to Canada at the tender age of four. The wonders of this new country amazed her so and she was excited to learn what this place could teach her. Hopefully, a new recipe for egg tarts.

Unfortunately, life in Canada was hard. Mei Ling could no longer catch tadpoles and feed them to bigger tadpoles. Also known as frogs. She probably shouldn't have done that in China either...

And now she's getting married. So, yeah. There's that.

Mike's Story

Michael was born in Toronto and has lived in Malton, Thunder Bay, Ottawa and finally Toronto. In all of Michael's travels he has never once seen a caterpillar. Maybe it's because they all become butterflies around him. That's nice.
