STRESS in caps and bold.

gosh never been this stress over a project before. not in my scouting days of doing endless projects.

stressing over the funds
stressing over the gig
stressing over the ticket sales
stressing over the textbook writing
stressing over the camp program
stressing over the volunteers
stressing over the nitty gritty stuff

and the dire need to learn mongolia.

I'm taking up the faith challenge. ~Pray and have faith~

missing you

Really missing US.

or maybe it's just the people and all the fun times and laughters shared that I miss... but i really miss the sun (but far from being hot!), sea and the relaxing culture too.

gosh i sooooo miss the the slightly chilly weather, relaxing at the beach, chilling out with friends at cafe and yogurt bars, doing silly things, cooking meals together, church and just all those lovely peeps whom I left.

and i'm so gonna miss chan ik when he enlist in the army. aww~~ as he left US to return to korea, I just get reminded of the same nostalgia and sadness I felt as our car left San Diego and then finally the last night in the hotel room of LA where the months of memories just come flooding my mind and just causing my eyes to brim. I'm really a strong person but goodbyes are just exceptions.

Fundraising Gig

Having a concert this 30th May at Young Musician Society to raise funds for the Summer Camp Project in mongolia.

Folks do show your support and come for this event. Tickets are up at $20. I'm desperate for your cash so don't disappoint me. Don't worry an empty wallet enriches others (the mongolian street kids and orphans).

To book your tickets, simply drop an email to OR text to 96150098

Home sweet home and everything that happened just felt so surreal. Good holidays always just passed too quickly. so here's Taiwan the last chapter of this exchange cum holiday.

Did nothing much except eating all day long.

queuing up for the famous soybean milk and yu tiao
one of the many lu rou fan we had
not to forget the famous xiao long baos from Ding Tai Fung
and the Shi Lin Night market which was a disappointment and thus no photos

and also the famous toilet theme restaurant

Becoming gluttons aside, we also became professionals at vegetating, indulging and just "wasting" the day away
one the many massages we had
arcade time

But we still bothered to turn on our tourist side and did some proper sight-seeing
Mustered enough cultural capacity to go visit the Zhongzhen Memorial Hall
and tourist spirit to go scale the Taipei 101
Visited the Fisherman's Wharf
And took a long train ride out as well to enjoy the Hotspring!

test of faith?

sum not coming in... numbers dwindling. Last minute pull-outs. Is this a test of faith?

Should I take a leap of faith?

this really feels like the right time... though I'm not sure.

US finale

All passed too fast for me to be able to update in time sadly. and in a flash the chapter of schooling and exploring the US has come to a closure.

so the mixed feelings on leaving US asides, here's the highlight of the intense 3 weeks of traveling US

In Michigan, visited the automobile museum and holocaust museum in detroit, drove up to New Berry of the Upper Peninsula to see the Tahquamenon Fall (2nd to niagara) and chilled out in this small town of untouched nature paradise.

In Minnesota visited chan ik and caught a baseball match and shopped at the Mall of America.

In LA where we visited Disneyland and caught some filming action in Hollywood.

In Vegas, acting atas (high-class) with fine hotels fine dining and catching the Peepshow and poker-facing in casinos.

Grand Canyon. Overlooking the majestic creation of God and taking the chopper for the 1st time.

And now it's bye bye US and hello Taipei. *sniff* here's a last bit of US:
