Hi everyone!

Well I thought it was time to update the blog and tell you all a little bit about myself. I've just returned from a show in Korea called "Festa on Ice" with Yuna-Kim. I really enjoyed the show very much and I wish to return to Korea very soon. The fans were phenomenal and, I believe, made all of the skaters job much easier when It came to performance. I've never experienced such great response from the crowd, it'll be quite hard to beat. The country itself was great, I thought. For some reason the country didn't feel foreign to me and I was quite comfortable. Though, maybe it was because I was only doing a show and not a competition.
My new programs are coming along quite well. The short program is just about finished, Lori and I only need to make some finishing touches. We haven't started the long program yet, but I very much look forward to starting it. I'm actually looking forward to the training of my programs, since I haven't done much "in season" training. So lately I feel a bit lazy, which is the main reason why I look forward to running threw both new programs as soon as possible.
Schools is almost finished, which means that I will be leaving for Florida, once again, for the summer. Don came down to Toronto before I left for Korea. He had come down for a seminar, that we attended together, in Burlington, Ontario. He didn't have time to look after me everyday since I had been working with Lori on the programs, but he still taught me a bit. I wasn't too concerned since I will be seeing him very soon in a few weeks. So I will speak to you all soon and once again thanks so much for visiting my website and supporting my dream! Take care and all the best.

You deserved the great reception because you were certainly amazing in all three shows. Thank you for the note, and I hope your training will go really well and also hope I can see you skate in the near future. Can't wait to see the new programs!

Hello!
I can see how you enjoyed the show from your message. I’m very glad to hear that.
I also enjoyed “Festa on Ice” very much. Your solo part was one of the greatest moments of the show. Calm, joyful and dynamic atmosphere of your performances were really pleasant to me. Patrick, you just made my day! Thank you for your wonderful performances! I was so happy to be there.
Hot summer is almost here, I hope you have a good time in Florida. Take care and make a nice start of the new season.
