hkcanadaexpat - May I ask where you get your informations from? If that is not possible, any chances you might know when TK #1 should take its first flight?

As of Saturday 2/22, TK #1 was still in a hangar getting worked on so first flight is not imminent.
EIS is still scheduled for 4/13 on IST-LHR route. If that date holds, you're probably looking at a first flight early March at the latest.
That being said, with the coronavirus outbreak, planemakers seem less in a rush to take delivery of aircraft right now so who knows.

One of the a35k prototypes is headed to Mexico for high altitude tests. This comes after the cold weather tests a few weeks back. Something appears afoot with regard to the engines.

Nice! The angle between the winglet and that flower on the fuselage (… forgot its name…) looks very balanced.

It was part of the original presentation back in 2006, but I have not heard anything about Airbus starting serious discussions with potential customers or dedicating serious design resources to it's development.

EDIT: Cargo Facts is reporting Airbus is actively pitching a freighter variant of the A350 to cargo operators. However, Frederic Horst, managing director, Cargo Facts Consulting, a sister venture to Cargo Facts, believes that the A350 might have difficulty finding traction in the market as the A350-900F does not have the payload lift to match the 777 Freighter and the A350-1000F would be facing much cheaper 777-300ER P2F conversions.

See F-WMIL A350K in La Paz (LPB) ......calibrating new engine nacelle? High altitude environment..... could be an encouraging performance enhancement on its way during next year?

For an A350F in my opinion Airbus has two options:

Build a business case arround the A359 and target the payload capability of the MD11F

Build a business case arround the A359 with landing gear and wing from the A35K and target the payload capability of the B77F

My guess is going to be none. It will likely just be painted in all white.

Sorry for nitpicking, but the German head of state is the president. The chancellor is the head of government. In any case, it will be used by various government officials, not only the chancellor.
