    wasting resources…? 

    [*this was to be posted last week, but discovered that wordpress + twitter were still being unreachable while in china.]

    viv and i got a chance to vist union church this past sunday (an english-speaking church where we attend whenever we’re in hk). it was a good sunday for us to be there. much was heard and digested (spiritually and physically) and still gestating in me (mainly the spiritual things now).
    being away from seattle/home and our normal day-to-day routines we’ve sort of lost track of time… we’re no longer looking at clocks, outlook calendars, etc. and it’s weird but equally good for our soul! we find ourselves unsure of the day of the week or even the time of the month. that’s why it was both serendipitous and a bit sad when the welcoming pastor announced a thanksgiving feast/meal after service.
    thanksgiving time already?!?!
    has that much time passed?
    my stomach was like: turkey, cranberries, sweet potato and pumpkin pie… YES!

    BUT… it also meant the first time i’d be away from my immediate/extended family for the holidays and our time abroad will be coming to a close soon… 😦 (More …)

    • chengdu
    • huang long (here’s a pic right before i got some major altitude sickness/sweaty throat… NOT fun!)
      g, v + baba @ huang long (approx 12800 ft. elevation)
