Yesterday, i was so blssed as i went to celebrate NYE at a fellow sisters house. we sang worsh*p songs and was reminded that we each have the ability to give him Prz thatΒ  is uniquely ours. ^___^

it’s 4:30am here andΒ  i’m leaving for beijing in 2 hours. I am excited because i will see my old chinese teacher, from Senior year at UCD, my P.Co 2006 STM trip Tsinghua students ^__^, and some old House Club friends and old college friends. I believe that BJ has a sense of nostology as i think about all the good times there and the heart for China that began. πŸ™‚ rap for those that i will see, i know i will be blssed beyond measure. ^_^

well, i leave you with this as i need to VCHAT with vivi before i go… πŸ™‚ new years resolution…

Give me one pure and holy passion

Give me one pure and holy passion
Give me on magnificent obsession
Give me one glorious ambition for my life
To know and follow hard after You

To know and follow hard after you
To grow as your dicsiple in your truth
This world is empty, pale, and poor
Compared to knowing you, my Lord
Lead me on and I will run after you
Lead me on and I will run after you


SO blssed December 29, 2009

there’s no place i’d rather be… well rather than home πŸ™‚ MERRY CHRISTMAS, faithful readers!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

so theres no place id rather be for my four day christmas break than in hong kong. if you never been, its a place….

where the system makes sense, there’s efficiency, kind service people, familiar faces, familiar places, where the language sounds like sweet nectar to my ears, the smell of the air bring back nostalgic memories, where there are malls at every MTR station, there are alley ways of fake goods, and fruit juice stands on every corner, where you can eat 6 meals a day and not feel fat because you’re legs feel like jello from being on your feet for over 10 hours,Β  where you have to line up for fresh hot daan tats, and you can eat boaw baos lai wong bao, and dim sum, and gai dan jia, and won ton mien, and cha siu fan, and bow jia fan, and lobster yu chee bisque!! and tong sun fun, and gong sick nai cha, and moon gay desserts and…….. oh my oh my so much more. πŸ™‚

more pictures to come…
