THREE THINGS ABOUT… KEVIN CHEUNG
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.
