Kampuchea...

Back from Cambodia. Feel proud about the progress that they have made. To conclude my trip, I went to what was my favorite cafe the last time I was there. Again feeling thankful for the experiences that I am afforded... Thank you Jesus.

remedy from the mean reds


instead of looking out at the tiffany's window, I shall do what class 95 says, think of 3 things that make you smile.

1) Taking a tuk tuk with big boxes during peak hour traffic, transporting material from office to hotel

2) A colleague who took the extra mile to bring me to collect my luggage before sending me back to my hotel.

3) Having drinks with my friends, just laughing at cross cultural differences and to not be on guard...

keeping fingers crossed for tomorrow!

ps: dialogue regarding meanreds:



Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?

Paul Varjak: The mean reds. You mean like the blues?

Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you're getting fat, and maybe it's been raining too long. You're just sad, that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid, and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

GLEE - Season Finale Performance - "Over the Rainbow"

:) starting to appreciate glee...

A tribute to a special friend...

There are days when you know you are touched by one of God's soldier, somebody who has faith, courage, and deep love in her heart. I met one such person when I was in Myanmar... Today was her last day of work, a short post as a tribute to her...


Sisi, a girl my age if not slightly younger. I first met her when I was in the Philippines and she was the representative of WV Myanmar to this course. A quiet and sweet girl...

In my last trip to Myanmar, i have grown to have a new found respect for her. From the way she deals with difficult situations, to her family situation. I am in awe that she still knows that God has a plan for her. that He is sovereign.

I am thankful for being provided with the opportunity to pray with her, to be a friend to her and for her genuine love. May God continue to pray and keep her, and to honor her in all that does.

The Unwavering Intensity of Desire

I am haunted by the stories of people who make the summit of Everest. Such incredible devotion is required, such total focus of body, soul, and spirit. Reaching the top of the world's tallest mountain becomes for those who try the central driving force of their lives. The goal is so remarkable and the journey so uncertain. Many climbers have been lost on the mountain. Those who reach the summit and return safely are among a rare and elite group of mountaineers in the world. Why do they do it? How do they do it?

John Krakauer recounted the desperate tale of the ill-fated '96 expedition in his book Into Thin Air: "There were many, many fine reasons not to go, but attempting to climb Everest is an intrinsically irrational act-a triumph of desire over sensibility." It is a feat begun in desire that can be accomplished only through desire. Krakauer explained how one of his climbing partners attained the summit: "Yasuko had been propelled up the mountain by the unwavering intensity of her desire.
Desire-it's the only way you will ever make it. Take marriage, for instance. Or singleness. Either makes for a far more difficult and arduous ascent than Everest, in large part because it does not seem so. The struggles are not heightened and focused into one month of do or die; rather, they stretch on across a lifetime. So it is with any act of faith or of hope-anything, in other words, that makes a life worth living. How can we possibly sustain such an intrinsically irrational act as love if we've killed our desire?

Thoughts when dealing with my "ailing body"

Body is not happy :( Between tummy pains, feeling weak and fevers...

I am reminded that. I am weak, a vessel, cannot do everything.... and yes, His strength is made perfect in my weakness.

So, will try to just let his strength work through...
