My Christmas gift! So nice!!

Funny chair:

My princess:

Last two days..

Last two days have been really painful for me. I got an upset stomach after the buffet. I think it was the lobster and sashimi that caused the problem. It was really painful this time. Soooo painful that I gotta go to the hospital. Luckily I got much much better now after 2 days medication. Have to be more careful when dining out from now on.

My mum is babysitting a new baby. She is sooooo cute:
A pretty christmas tree at IFC (It's made up by hanging balls from the top. A wonderful design!):

Buffet tonight!

Eva, Calvin, Sandra and I went to have buffet at Century HK Hotel tonight. Since Calvin is helping us to take the wedding photo for free, we decided to treat him a dinner. The food was okay but not as delicious as we expected. The foie gras was pretty good. But the desert was quite awful!

Today my home comes a new baby girl whom my mother babysits. She is so cute!

Music Concert

I went to the music concert of my sister tonight. She played Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4. Her performance was pretty good. One of her schoolmates played Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor. Although it is one of the most difficult piece of piano concerto, I think his performance was also pretty good.

So full after pizza hut!

Our wedding ring

A tiring day.

Jet lag wasn't too serious this time. I woke up at around 5am this morning. Today, Sze and I went to see the report of our pre-marital personalty test. We did it few months ago just for fun. HoHoHo. The counselor said we got the highest score amongst all the couples he has ever seen. The counselor has picked up some possible 'issues' that we should try to take care of. We spent 2 1/2 hours on the counseling. We both got tired at the end. The counselor mentioned that getting adapted to our new life in Boston might be one of the most crucial issue. He suggested that we should start thinking about different methods to deal with it. I think he was quite right about that.

We have had pizza hut for dinner tonight and tried out the new pizza. I was planning to buy a pair of jeans today. But it turned out to be too late already after counseling. Have to buy it later then~

Finally I m back..

After 15 hours of flight, I am finally back to Hong Kong. It wasn't too tired because I got lots of sleep on the flight. And what a coincidence that Teresa was on the same flight sitting next to me!

I took E21 bus back home. It's a long journey and took me an hour to get back home. Something terrifying happened: When the bus was almost arriving at my home, black smoke came out from the back tire. Everyone was so scared and got off the bus at once. Luckily, it was just one stop before my final destination. So, I've just walked back home with my luggage.

It's so good to see my family again. In the morning, I went to 'drink tea' with my mum, my brother and my sister-in-law. After that, we went to visit the graves of my grandmothers and grandfather. And I got a chance to sit on my brother's new car (Honda). It's a really nice car!

In the afternoon, I did lots of things. I went to Cheung Chau to meet Sandra. We then went to Ferti in MongKok to shop for our wedding rings. We bought a really nice pair of rings! We like it a lot. In the evening, we went to have the wedding clothes fitting. It's so tired to do the fitting. It took us about two hours to finish the fitting. We have had a late dinner at 9PM. We got Sushi tonight. Yummy Yummy!

Soooooooooo tired today. I am about to get a good sleep!

Two more days...

I will be going back to HK. I have been waiting for that day for so long! I am so excited about it. Hong Kong..I am coming!!

The long weekend...

It was a fruitful long weekend. I've hanged out with friends for all three days. Thank you all for celebrating my birthday. It's so sweet. I really appreciate it.

Thursday, November 08, 2007

I didn't quite get a good sleep last night. It was soooo terrifying. At around 1am I received a phone call from her informing that she was in the hospital. She was found unconscious and was admitted to ER with a helicopter from Cheung Chau. It's shocking. It can be serious. I am still so worrying about her.

Pray the Lord that she will be getting okay.

Nice song


一天的人生 化做宇宙塵

逼真安全感 發自你每一吻
一天過後有你抱緊 零時零分
放下戒心 掃走一天氣忿

無用追趕工作 動魄驚心

明日假使失去你 能夠吻 便要吻
(last x 平靜只得一剎那 能夠吻 便要吻)

新一天人生 繼續要運行 

些少的情感 已密佈了黑暗
多得每夜有你倒數 零時零分


平伏心中抑鬱 消災解困

REPEAT * with quote

I've been *trying to work hard on my research work these days, though it was progressing really slow. I know there are deadlines for them, but that couldn't quite push me to work hard. I really have to get with it. I have to finish them before I head back to Hong Kong in December.

It's always not easy to make a decision, especially if the wrong decision might affect you quite a bit. As Sze said, I guess I should better hang tough on the decision what I have made. I know there's a reason why He put us to a totally new place to start our new stage of life. And I should have trust in Him that His way is always the best.

I've been researching on the green card application recently. After consulting with the lawyers, they think I could have a better chance to apply it through NIW. The whole process is so complicated. Life will be much easier if we have a GC. But is that something we should really do? I guess we should pray hard for the answer.

Congratulations, Magnus. He finally announced it! So many people are getting married in 2008. Now, there're already 3 couples. Anymore? haha!

Friday, October 12, 2007

How am I doing?

I've been working quite hard these days. Everything has been organized more systematically. So now, I have, at least, a better sense of what I should do. That's good. It's always harsh without a direction.

Finally, Sze jas talked to her pastors. It's good to get it over. I guess there's a lesson the Lord wants both of us to learn together.

Sze and I have recently tried to do some research to estimate the living expense in Boston. It was sooooo fun! I love that feeling I get when we plan things together!

More faith..

Feeling a bit weak spirtuall. I guess I'm not having enough faith in Him. There're just too many things I m worrying about. I'm worrying about the possible new changes, my capability,... But yeah..I think I'm just worrying too much. As long as it's His will, I trust that He can and will provide. But I do need more faith at this moment!

Get over Jet lag

I finally got over the jet lag problem. I feel much much better with more sleep. Research work is doing okay. What I need to do now is to work hard on my work, and look forwards to my trip back to HK. Oh. By the way, I've almost forgot! I need to go wooden center to get myself to good shape. I am taking wedding photo in 2 months. Oh. Just two months!

Went through a good verse today. It's a good reminder to have faith in Him:
既 是 這 樣 、 還 有 甚 麼 說 的 呢 .   神 若 幫 助 我 們 、 誰 能 敵 擋 我 們 呢 。神 既 不 愛 惜 自 己 的 兒 子 為 我 們 眾 人 捨 了 、 豈 不 也 把 萬 物 和 他 一 同 白 白 的 賜 給 我 們 麼 。 誰 能 控 告   神 所 揀 選 的 人 呢 . 有   神 稱 他 們 為 義 了 。誰 能 定 他 們 的 罪 呢 . 有 基 督 耶 穌 已 經 死 了 、 而 且 從 死 裡 復 活 、 現 今 在   神 的 右 邊 、 也 替 我 們 祈 求 。 誰 能 使 我 們 與 基 督 的 愛 隔 絕 呢 . 難 道 是 患 難 麼 、 是 困 苦 麼 、 是 逼 迫 麼 、 是 飢 餓 麼 、 是 赤 身 露 體 麼 、 是 危 險 麼 、 是 刀 劍 麼 。如 經 上 所 記 、 『 我 們 為 你 的 緣 故 、 終 日 被 殺 . 人 看 我 們 如 將 宰 的 羊 。 』然 而 靠 著 愛 我 們 的 主 、 在 這 一 切 的 事 上 、 已 經 得 勝 有 餘 了 。

Thursday, September 27, 2007


It's 2:30am and I've waken up! Less than 4 hours sleep again. I don't how long it will take me to get over the jetlag. Maybe I am a bit stressed recently and that I cant relax myself to take rest. Just too many things are happening around me and her. On one hand, I am a bit stressed because of works and the upcoming transition of my life. On the other hand, I know she is also stressed because of her busy work, the church issue and the relationship with her bro/sis in church. If possible, I really want to be together with her to face all these. I'm worrying about her.

Still in a really bad mood. I couldn't quite concentrate on my work. What should I do!?

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Got more things done!

Finally, I could get few hours sleep last night. I feel much better with more rest.

I've already booked the flight ticket. It's so fully booked. I am so glad that I can still get my ticket. The job next year after my graduation is getting more confirmed. Thank you Lord. Still have to discuss it with Tony this weekend to get his advice. I hope everything can be confirmed soon, so that I can concentrate more on my research work.

The next important thing is about the visa application for CCMM. I am not quite sure about those F2, H4 visa stuff. I guess I have to go to the OISS to inquire about it. Someone said I should do the marriage registration earlier. Someone said the other way. I am a bit confused.

Um. But I know You will lead me all the way.

Jet lag..

I couldn't quite fall asleep because of the jet lag. I feel tired but I couldn't sleep. It's so pity!

I've already coped with most things that I've to take care of after leaving for 3 months. And I've called the travel agent about the flight ticket in December. It's so freaking expensive and it's so full already!! But I've no choice. December is perhaps the only time I can leave for so long for the wedding photo and other wedding preparation.

Still negotiating with the job. Feel a bit insecure. But yeah, I shouldn't worry too much because I know He is looking after all these. And I know:

Have had dinner with my friend tonight. I know he is having a harsh time making his decision. I totally understand his situation.

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

Back to L.A.!

I am back to L.A.. Yes. Very unwillingly, I am again back in United States. 3 months has passed so quickly. I've had so much fun in HK with my family and friends. I don't really want to come back. But yeah, as you said, I am already back and I shouldn't mention that anymore.
So many things to handle after leaving for so long. I really need strength to deal with all these. Lord, pray that You would help me to go through all these.

Wedding clothes..

Tonight, we went to choose our wedding clothes for taking wedding photos in December. It took quite a long time, coz there're so many choices. Finally, we picked three of them. It's really a fun experience!
Photos? Yeah. They are up but I am not going to publicize them. HEHE.

Wedding plan...

Thx for God's grace. Everything went through smoothly for our wedding preparation. We have already booked the wedding hall and banquet restaurant.

I've finally changed the return date of my trip. Thanks God. Now I could stay 10 days more in HK. Cool~

Saturday, August 11, 2007

Beijing is...

so hot today! It's possibly because of the "air adjustment measure". Last Wednesday was the "100 days before the Olympic". And so a lot of guest from all over the world came to Beijing to celebrate. In order to have a good air condition, the governemt has bumped some chemicals to the sky to "improve" the air. WoWoW. You have to believe that Chinese government can really make the sky clear during the Olympic.

Life is as usual. Trying to get things done. Look forwards to going back to HK. Still have some troubles to change the return date of my flight ticket. God. Please help.

Thursday, August 09, 2007

Stay for 2 weeks longer...

I've decided to stay in HK 2 weeks longer. Tho'I have to pay for the penalty, I think it worths. I'll wait for the email from the department before I decide the exact return date. Cool~ I'm gonna have more time with my family and HER. :)

Bad experience at the hotel...

Beijing, the capital, is supposed to be the representation of China. The behavior of people here- how they act, how they speak,etc, can directly affect foreigner's impression on China. 'Beijing'ers are responsible to take this role to build the good image of our country. But even tho' I m a Chinese, I cannot accept those bad behavior and attitude of 'Beijing'er. It's difficult to imagine why a city like that could be chosen as the host city of 2008 Olympic!

More ridiculously, it's really outta my expectation that the staff in the hotel can also be that impolite. The funniest was that he can still behave so naively after I have complained him. I could (or perhaps I should) certainly complain him once again. I didnt do so (instead I just shook my head with a soft chuckle). It's not because I am afraid of him, but I just didn't want him to loss his job or bring him about any more troubles...The thing is..I dunno when I will lose my patience to put up with his bad attitude. I dunno when I cant tolerate anymore that I will go and complain him the second time...

Sandra's Beijing visit...

Sandra came to Beijing to visit me this week. Tho' both of us don't like Beijing at all, we've had a really good time together for about a week...

Still have 3 more weeks I'll go back to HK. So excited about that!!

My long weekend in Hong Kong...

Friday: I got back to Hong Kong at about 11am. Lunch with mum. We watched Harry Potter tonight. The movie was great. Special effect was awesome, especially we were watching in the 4D theater at the airport. Tho' it's a long journey to the airport, it worths!

Saturday: Shopping...Seafood dinner at Cheung Chau. Yummy Yummy!

Sunday: Church-- the message was good. Thanks God! Sandra came to have dinner with dad and mum. Sooooooooo relaxing today!!

Monday: Karaoke!! HK is such a small city. We met Tim at MongKok today! Hot Pot tonight..sooooo full!!

Tuesday: Stay with sandra at her school. She needs to work today. Flight back to Beijing in the evening. Vacation ended! So fast. Too fast!!

Wednesday, July 18, 2007


here in Beijing is quite boring. I hate it more as I live here longer. Beijing is unruly! It's chaotic! And there's NO rule at all! I got horned by cars when the traffic light is green! And today, cars were driving on the pedestrian road...

Teammates got frustrated with the project. Perhaps the problem is too difficult to tackle. I feel difficult to lead the team. Lord, please give me strength and wisdom to deal with it.

Got the office at the Morningside Maths Institute. It's more quiet there, because I have my own office. I'll try to work there more often.

Excited about the trip back to HK! Yeah. Very soon~

God's grace..

Yesterday was a wonderful day. Thanks God! We saw God's grace on us...

Because of the visa application, we've decided earlier that we should do the marriage registration next month. We wanna get started with the visa application earlier. This seems to be weird to us. But since we didn't know what exactly the problem was, we just sticked with the original plan...

These days I have been really struggling. I didn't know if it's the right thing. Praise the Lord! God is looking after us and He listened to my prayer. Yesterday we were about to go to the registration office to submit documents. But it was at the last moment when God let us know what we're planning to do was wrong. It's weird not because of the procedure. It's 'weird' because we didn't have enough faith in Him. Yeah. It might seem to be more 'difficult' to apply for visa if we do it later. But if it's His will, nothing can be difficult.

Yes. When problem arises, we might try to find our own ways to solve it. Many times we just plan by ourselves and walk apart from the Lord. Shall we follow our own? Or we should better give trust to our Lord and believe that He could handle everything for us? We finally decided to let Him be our Lord, our leader!

Yeah. Praise the Lord. We thank God, because He is taking care of our problems..He is looking after us.

"All the way the savior leads me what am I to ask beside?..."

Hong Kong...

I've just bought the ticket back to HK on 7/20 for 5 days (during the long weekend). So excited! Sandra is coming to Beijing on 7/29 too. We will be travelling around the city. YEAH~~


I was sick! I got a cold and cough. I was originally planning to travel around with teammates during the weekend. But it turned out that I had to stay at the hotel to take rest. :( Thanks God I'm feeling much much better today.

I went to church on Sunday. This church is so interesting that they only allow people with foreigner passport (BNO included) to enter. I met Irene there too! It's so great to see her again in Beijing!

Sunday evening we went to the food street in Beijing. So many different kind of good foods!!

Friday, July 06, 2007


I couldn't quite concentrate on my work today. I got a cough and so I took some medication. The medication made me feel sleepy and tired. I might better go back to the hotel and get some rest.

I talked to Prof. today. He doesn't want me to work on our research project at Microsoft. He will give me an office at his Maths. Institute to work during my spare time. I don't know how far it is from my Microsoft office. I hope it wouldn't be too far away, so that I could walk back and fro to work. Well..let's see..

Thursday, July 05, 2007

I don't like Beijing!

My fifth day in Beijing. My impression sucks! I hate Beijing! I don't wanna stay here. Everything are dirty! Everywhere are dirty (except the Microsoft office, to be fair). I couldn't understand why people can live here. Street smells. Foods are dirty and oily. Cooks deomonstrate their dirty cooking precedure in front of customers! People and cars cross the road without following the traffic light! name it!! Ridiculous!

Wednesday, July 04, 2007

How's life here?

It's my fourth day in Beijing. I've already settled down. I've started my job too. I was so busy on the first two days of my job. So many meetings, 'lunch' and 'dinner'. Hopefully, life will be more relaxed later on. The living condition of the hotel was not good, but is acceptable. Poor me that I didn't have internet access in the hotel on the first day. Thanks God. I switched to another room with internet after I've fighted for it.
I'm planning to go back to Hong Kong during the long weekend. Hope that the flight ticket wouldnt be too expensive.

Sunday, July 01, 2007

So Sick!!

I felt sooooo sick yesterday. I think it's because of the dirty food I ate. I was wondering if I could fly to Beijing today. Thanks God. I got much much better this morning when I woke up. And now, I am ready for my Beijing trip.
Microsoft..Beijing..I'm coming!!

Friday, June 29, 2007

I've done it! Yeah!

Good job, Ron. You've done it!
( know what? I was soooooo scared!!! well...ANYWAYS!)

Okay. Yeah. I'm engaged.

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Japanese food..yummy!

Sandra and I, together with her uncle and aunt, had dinner tonight. We discussed the purpose of marriage a little bit. There're some points they made that I could hardly agree on. It's okay tho'. It's cool to have fellowship, after all. The dinner was great. I like the japanese food. YUMMY YUMMY!!

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

A Big Dinner

My parents and Sze's parents met and had dinner tonight. What a big dinner! Thanks God. Everything just went through so smoothly. Praise the Lord.

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

I'm back!

I've arrived at Hong Kong this morning. My mum came to pick me up. I feel sooooo happy to see my mum again. There's nothing much changes in Hong Kong. Well. I was in Hong Kong like two months back. I shouldn't expect there're too much changes.
So good to see Sandra again. I know she's tired of working. But she's so nice that she came out from Cheung Chau and hanged out with me. We've had dinner with my family and then we went out for a movie -- the pirate. HEHE.. ButI feel soooo sorry coz I fell asleep in the theatre. I was just too tired. SORRY SZE! HEHE.

Wednesday, June 06, 2007

Look at it from a different perspective...

I've been recently swamped with research works. As Prof. is leaving for Boston this Friday, he's expecting that we could finish up something before he leaves. And that means I'm getting busier.

Close friends of mine should have listened to me whine over the past few weeks about my busy work. But last night when I was driving back home on freeway, I meditated about things happened to me lately. I again realized these all might be His plans for me. When challenges came, I tried to escape from it. I see it as a harsh task for me rather than grace. Today, Sandra reminded me that it's a chance that I've always been longing for. This triggered me some thoughts. Perhaps I should not keep blaming and instead I should express my thanks.

So happy with this news. I know it's given by the Lord. Thanks God and let Him be the glory.

Don't Write Me Off (Hugh Grant)

It's never been easy for me
To find words that go along with a melody
But this time there's actually something on my mind
So please forgive these few brief awkward lines
Since I met you my whole life has changed
It's not just the furniture you re-arranged
I was living in the past
But somehow you brought me back
and I havn't felt like this since before Frankie said relax
and now I know based on my track record
I may not seem like the safest bet
All I'm asking you is
Don't write me off just yet

For years I've been telling myself the same old story
That I'm happy to live off my so called formor glorys
but you've given me a reason
to take another chance
now I need you inspite the fact
that you've killed all my plants
and now I know
that i've already blown more chances
then anyone should ever get
all I'm asking you is
don't write me off just yet
don't write me off just yet

Sunday, May 20, 2007

I'm confused.

Things have just happened not as what I wanted or planned lately. Sometimes I feel frustrated and disappointed. I've been reminded many times that I do not need to worry, coz He has a perfect plan on me. But emotionally I just couldnt stop my anxiety.

When chances, which were considered by many people as 'good', came to me, people around thought I was treating them as if I didn't care at all. The thing is, I treasure them and I really care. But to me there're just sth more important in my life that I have to put them as my priority. Just because I don't grasp all the chances at once doesn't mean I don't treasure them at all. How come people couldn't understand? Is there anyone who truly know what I'm thinking? Well. But I guess He does.

Thursday, May 17, 2007

An early "bad" news :(

Our original summer plan has to be changed again. I feel a bit disappointed this morning, coz I don't like amendment. After all, that's something I have been longing for. But there's just nothing I can do for it. Helpless!

I realistically know that it may be His plan and that it may be better off for me. But emotionally, I feel a bit upset. Well. May be it is another lesson for me to learn how to consolidate my faith. Maybe it's another lesson for me to learn how to balance between my emotion and reason.

Quick update of myself

It has been a while since I last posted. I think it's about the right time to give a quick update about myself. So, what have I been?

First of all, l have to mention that I am flying to Beijing this summer to work at Microsoft Asia. I feel so excited about it and could not wait any longer to check out Beijing. As the mentor of two projects, I could see the task is gonna be challeging but interesting. And I am pretty sure it's gonna be a very good experience. But now, I think polishing my Mandarin and Chinese would be a top priority. I am working hard on it and I don't know how well it would go before I head off to Beijing.

So, I've been working really hard on my research work these days. I intend to accomplish one or two research projects before I leave. The progress is just so-so, mainly because I am too lazy. There're lots of works. I think I really need to get with it.

Besides research work, I am helping out to organize the church retreat. It's kind of a beneficial experience. I've never organized such a 'big' event before. I am learning a lot from it.

Well. As you could see, life has been very much as usual. Church, research and sharing with her have become the routine. Yah. Sorta boring. But I know, my HK and BJ trip is coming. 29 days left. Yeah!!

秋雨甘霖 「人生熱線影院」主題曲
編曲:Ted Lo






相信明天,有著新里程, 重設生命方向,探索心內細情。

重新振翅,穿梭星馳, 晴天、陰天,光彩總會遇見!

如春雨降,秋天甘霖, 神的祝福,改寫心裡日誌。
Thx God that our quarrel didn't last too long. I guess both of us have been really tired these days. We argued more than before, mainly because of some minor things. I think the best way to improve is to be more considerate and care more about each others.

Thursday, April 26, 2007

A good first step

I've been tired of getting involved in such a meaningless conflict between them. It just wouldn't help but harm our research progress. And definitely I shouldn't be in between such a 'cold war'. So, I bravely told the whole situation to one of them and let them find their own solution. I don't know if I did it right. But I don't want to get involved anymore.

Another nice song

Sandra gave me this song. I like it.










Tuesday, April 24, 2007

To my dad and mum:

曲 : Walter Wong 詞:李峻一
編 : Johnny Yim 監 : Gary Chan

你拋不開 手裡的工作
亦追跟趕 到校舍趕接放學

夜深一點 教導我功課
待天一光 又來催我上學堂
你在昨天 辛苦太過

*所有父母 也盼子女成材
就算他 獎與罰 也總帶著愛
世上哪個 如父母親愛

舉首凝視 似是大樹護蔭的你

彈指之間 歲月巳飄去
父子之間 總也有歡笑眼淚
在血緣能找到 萬般的親抹不去

漫畫書本 不要我偷看
學多一點 未來少一些出錯

Victorious life

I'm learning a big lesson these days: How to experience a victorious life. It's especially difficult to figure it out when we're weak in faith. But I trust in Him that He could (and He is actually the only one who could) teach me.

Research work is getting more and more organized. I hope we can achieve something before my internship at Beijing.

How am I doing lately?

I haven't updated my blog for a long while because I've been really busy lately. Sandra came to L.A. and I've been busy hanging out with her. Then I've gone back to HK and have been busy for my brother's wedding (and of course busy for hanging out around in HK.)

Just came back to L.A. two weeks ago. Feel really frustrated recently. I feel disappointed because the research work didnt go as I expected. And I feel lost coz I'm not very sure about my future path...

But do I really need to worry? Where does my faith go? Do I not trust Him anymore? Do I not remember that He is faithful? Do I forget His promise that He will lead my way? O Lord, I need more faith.

I've been working very hard these days. I really wanna accomplish some of the projects before the summer. On the other hand, boss suggested me to work on an interesting but harsh project. I decided to give it a try, but it means I'm getting more works to do. I've to get ready for it. But I trust all the way my Lord leads me, and He wont give me more than what I can handle.

Perhaps I didnt get enough sleep these days. Or perhaps there're just too many changes happened. I was always in a blue mood lately and had a really bad temper. I just feel like confused with everything. I don't know what I am supposed to do, where I will be going and what I will be doing...I dunno what's happening to me!? Where's my faith? Lord, Pray that you can give me more faith in you.

P.S.: Sze, sorry for throwing the tantrum on you these days. And sorry for my inconsiderate. Thx for tolerating me.

53:4 他 誠 然 擔 當 我 們 的 憂 患 、 背 負 我 們 的 痛 苦 . 我 們 卻 以 為 他 受 責 罰 、 被   神 擊 打 苦 待 了 。
53:5 那 知 他 為 我 們 的 過 犯 受 害 、 為 我 們 的 罪 孽 壓 傷 . 因 他 受 的 刑 罰 我 們 得 平 安因 他 受 的 鞭 傷 我 們 得 醫 治 。
53:6 我 們 都 如 羊 走 迷 、 各 人 偏 行 己 路 . 耶 和 華 使 我 們 眾 人 的 罪 孽 都 歸 在 他 身 上 。

Be still my soul

I agree with Irene from her sharing on that we have to find rest in our busy work schedule. Yea. Works wouldnt stop itself, unless we're the one to cease it. Perhaps we can find thousands of reason to keep ourselves extremely busy. But there's only one good reason for us to take rest: our soul needs rest.

I like this hymn lately.


Be still, my soul; the Lord is on thy side;
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
Leave to thy God to Order and provide;
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul; thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul; thy God doth undertake
to guide the Future as He has the past,
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
all now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul; the waves and winds still know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still, my soul; the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord,
When disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,
sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.
Be still, my soul; when change and tears are past,
all safe and blessed we shall meet at last. Amen

Suffering v.s existence of God?

I've had a brief conversation with my friend about Christianity last night. He was a catholic before. He raised a question that indeed induced me to think about it seriously. He questioned why there're so many suffering around if God really exists. We can probably understand/accept why bad guys have to suffer. But yet, why do "good" people or "innocent" people suffer?
So, I was thinking about it very seriously. It IS a hard question, but typical I guess. To me, as a christian, it's difficult to fully understand what God's will is. Sometimes people suffer because they are sinful. Sometimes God wants men to suffer for other purpooses, say to testify His love, to develop care between brothers and sisters...For example, why did Jesus, who has never sinned, suffer and die for us? Yeah. This is hard to get the reason. But through that God has testified to us how He loves us. (For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16)

So it's really difficult to understnad the full story behind. Very often we are bounded to the worldly definitions of 'good', 'bad' and 'suffering'. We begin to question and we lose our faith in God. So, we have to pray the Lord that He can give us wisdom. We've gotta realize that it's not the 'fortunate'/'unfortunate' encounters that matter. The process of it is sth that really matter. The fruitful thing is: we can always experience Him in the process, and the things He gave us are always good to us in the long run. This is what our faithful Lord has promised to us. So, let's have faith in Him.

P.S. Pray the Lord for opening my friend's heart, so that he can get the salvation soon.


Feel frustrated these days! Seems like things are happening just to let me down. Trying to pay effort on works but no result could be achived at all...
Hate to have such a blue mood..feel a bit stressed out! What shall I do!?

A Tribute to Everwood!

For those who love the show "Everwood"! (I'm a big fan of it, by the way!)

Sunday, February 11, 2007

I was invited to give my testimony in today's sunday school. And that gave me a chance to rethink how I got the salvation. It once again reminded me how blessed I am to be chosen by God. When I restropected my past, I truly realized how He has planned my life from the very begining. It was not that I had done sth good to Him that He has chosen me. But He has completed the salvation to save us when we were still sinful men. Many times I was weak and did things that disappointed Him, but He has never left me and given me up. Instead, He pulled me back to Him. That's really an amazing grace. Praise to Him.

P.S. sorry that I didn't call you and let you worry about me. Promise that "No Next Time!".

Thx God.

That's a good news! Tho' I don't really think I deserve it. There're far more people who are much better than me. Well..Thx God. Praise the Lord and it's all His glory.
I feel really happy today, because my mum, my dad and sandra are all delighted about that. I found that they are one of the main source of my happiness. I feel really blessed to have them in my life.

I havent listened to this song for more than a year. But I got a new understanding about the song after I listened to it again this morning.

Hero - Mariah Carey
There's a hero
if you look inside your heart.
You don't have to be afraid of what you are.
There's an answer
if you reach into your soul
and the sorrow that you know will melt away.

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth
that a hero lies in you.

It's a long road
when you face the world alone;
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold.
You can find love if you search within yourself
and the emptiness you felt will disappearrrr.

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears asideand
you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

Lord knows dreams are hard to follow,
But don't let anyone tear them away.
Hold on, there will be tomorrow,
In time you'll find the way.

And then a hero comes along
with the strength to carry on
and you cast your fears aside
and you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone
look inside you and be strong
and you'll finally see the truth that a hero lies in you.

That a hero lies in youuuuuuuuuu.
ohhh that a hero lies in youuu.

Monday: I got a cold. I felt terribly uncomfortable. The headache and dizziness were killing me. And poor me -- I gotta proctor and grade the exam today. After grading the exam, I rushed back home to hit the sack. Thx God that I felt much much better after the medication and >10 hours sleep.

Tuesday: It has been a long day. Teaching, office hours, extra office hours and research works. Well.. It's enjoyable, tho' tiring.

I was reading the Book of Job tonight. The book discusses why and how an innocent person, Job, suffered. Job was a good man. But Job lost all his possessions. His children died. He became so ill that he wanted to die. But Job refused to insult God.
Many times we may want to give up when we are having a terrible experience. Sometimes we may even insult God. But I think..God can use the experience of suffering for good. We should never think that suffering is a waste. Also, God won't give us test beyond what we can bear. This reminds me with some verses from the New Testament:

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1:2-4)

"No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it."(1 Cor. 10:13)

LA has been really cold lately. It's freezing at night. And snowfall was even recorded yesterday! So scary! Snowfall in L.A.!? unbelivable! And Poor me! I dun have a good heater at home. So, I was forced to work in my office these days, which is much warmer!

Teaching is getting more fun. I feel good to be with my students. I got a great deal of satisfaction when my students said to me sth like: "O..I got u!", " makes much more sense to me now!",... I think I m really so into teaching!

Research is doing okay. There're some projects that I'm very interested in. But since there're some other urgent deadlines to meet, I have to put them on the back burner. But that's good, coz it can give me time to familiarize myself with the new concept.

Monday, January 15, 2007

Sat: I had a meeting with Tony and he advised me on my career path. After the discussion, I got a better idea on what I should be doing in the coming 2-3 years. Now that I have a concrete planning for my research work and career, I guess I truly have to get with it and get things all done in time. Ron. You cant be that lazy anymore!

Sun: We had a quarrel again. I feel really bad for making you so bent. I dun really know what's going on with me lately. How come I dun have enough faith in God!?

Mon: Glad that we are soon reconciled after the quarrel. I feel like we know each others more. That's cool.

School again.

School starts and I'm getting back to my research work again. I miss the Europe trip very much, especially this trip means a lot to me. But still I needa get back to work.
This quarter I'll be super busy. Besides research, I'm teaching two courses=3 sections this quarter. I feel like I'm swarmed with work all the time. Hope I can handle with it.
Havent taught for two years. I felt a bit nervous during the first few minutes of my first class. The classes were generally going quite smoothly. Thx God.
And I realize that I truly like teaching..I enjoy teaching and the time with my students a lot!

Back to LA from Europe.

The Europe trip ends so quickly. And I've just come back to LA, so unwillingly. The trip was great. We visited so many places. I like Europe so much, especially Munich! Of course, the best thing is to travel with her.
I really dun wanna come back to school and work, though I have to.
So tired after the long trip. Gotta take more good rest before the quarter begins!
