1. A “self-learner,” Cheung taught him­self to as­sem­ble his own com­puter af­ter re­search­ing and buy­ing all the parts. “I built most of the ones in my of­fice, in fact–no­body re­ally knows that,” he says. “I find fid­dling with com­put­ers on a Satur­day morn­ing, say, very de-stress­ing.”

2. He trained with a bad­minton coach in Shang­hai and now plays at the Van­cou­ver Lawn Ten­nis & Bad­minton Club. “He was the equiv­a­lent to a na­tional coach stan­dard here, so I want to keep that go­ing,” Cheung says.

3. With Chi­nese cul­ture cel­e­brat­ing turn­ing 29 as Western­ers might mark 30, he had fam­ily par­ties for the mile­stone birth­day in Van­cou­ver and Shang­hai. “Al­though cul­tur­ally, turn­ing 40 or 50 means even more,” he ob­serves.
