小酌一下







星期六晚上,看了足球赛后,这些来自外国的交换生朋友们邀我一起去他们的小聚,原本拒绝了,因为每
次他们的派对都很远,加上他们每次都喝瘫,不想和他们一样。但是后来他们说这小聚是在一个德国女生
的客厅,由于她们寝室就在我房间对边,想说不会很远,随时要离开就离开,就答应了。在朋友的寝室小
酌一下,一起玩玩游戏,毕竟我对他们又熟悉又陌生,借着游戏认识他们,一起大笑,玩了一圈后,我在
11点半就告别了他们,回房间睡觉了。哈哈哈,不喝挂不醉酒是我的原则,加上我也早已告别了狂欢的日
子,他们听说我要先离开回去睡觉,全都吓了一跳,对他们来说好像才刚开始呢!哈哈哈,我应该是他们
这圈子里最早离开派对回房间睡觉的人吧,没办法,交际归交际,人有了点年纪后,睡觉还是很重要的。

我的新朋友!




容我介绍你我新认识的朋友!!哈哈哈

他叫Nathan,算是我学长,在路上巧遇的,他帮我把东西拿去课室里,在路上了起来的。在聊天中发现我俩志同道合,喜欢旅行,喜欢美食。他去过以色列,欧洲等,很酷吧!!我们的人生目标不一样,但当朋友还挺不赖的!
由于他喜欢美食,所以就带了他去试吃我很喜欢的小吃店(他竟然没去过!),点了泡菜薯条,bibimbap,还有汉堡,他吃完后赞不绝口,说这是他在这一代吃到最好吃的食物!!!哈哈哈,很夸张~~但我还是开心死了!(看来我应该要开始和这家店收Commission.)

和他在路上聊了很多蛮有深度的话题,很感恩认识一个读国际政治的朋友,虽然不知道以后他会不会当总统,还是很有影响力的政治人物,还是期待以后当彼此都是领袖时有更多合作的机会!哈哈哈

聚一聚,聊一聊

和King King聚一聚,顺便聊近况,在忙碌中其实蛮难抽出时间和一个一个人聊天
感恩有这样忙里偷闲的时光,好好享受美食,好好聊聊天。
她其实也是我其中一个想传福音的对象,但很多时候却不晓得该从何下手,求神继续带领。

暗房初体验

这个学期我有拿摄影课,比起以往的摄影课,我对这堂课其实还蛮期待和兴奋的。
原因是能够在暗房里自己冲洗底片和印制照片,梦寐以求啊!!!
加上老师还说只要我喜欢,可以随时过去暗房里玩!太棒了!!
第一次的暗房体验很奇妙,黑漆漆的,看着照片慢慢浮现出来,心情真的难以形容~~~
上网订购了一些黑白的底片,迫不及待开始拍照,重拾摄影的心情,出发吧!

When circumstances turn you into a something else....

Yes, sometimes our dining hall doesn't have pleasant food, so with that adverse circumstances, shaped me a chef,
 not the top one, but good enough to survive.
Now I do love and enjoy cooking....hahahah..... more to go!!!!

Hurricane didn't affect us as we thought it would, thank God for protection, but still, the wind was strong tonight!!! 
For a second I thought I would been blown away with my umbrella. >.<"

Sunday


If you can write a book with the title: God is.........
What will you write?

"If you see God's power vividly, you will worship Him loudly."

Going through Psalm 29 in this Sunday morning, see how almighty God is and His holiness. DJ(speaker of the day) mentioned 3 ways God's power should fuel our worship. God's power is humbling when people think they are clever enough to control the storm in their life, they just couldn't. God's power is frightening, His voice like thunder, shaken our heart, what about His arm? God's power is awesome, His love changes our perspective. We have to come to realize that our praise and glory doesn't change God Himself, God will not receive more glory or praise from us, but instead, that changes us, draw us closer to Him and fix us. DJ has the passion on God's word and just feel so emotional and filled with thoughts when he spoke, it was really great.

Went to church on Sunday morning with Denisa, end up meeting up a new friend and had lunch together. This is Tristen he is Japanese mix Korean and American, he is a transfer Senior student. We brought him to our familiar pizza place, show him the pizza we usually ordered, had some fun and interesting conversation together.

On Sunday night, I went to church to help up their Student ministry, it's kick off day! They are lack of people in this ministry, especially college students which will be easier to connect with the youth, so I just decided to go and check it out. Meet a lot of cool and sweet youth over there, not sure whether am I going to continue to serve in this ministry for this year, but will definitely pray about it and see.

American Football game!

Yes, American football game! First time stay and finished the whole game!
And I helped at the concession desk too, fun but scary experience when you have no idea what are the names for the candies! 
(and I couldn't find the place in the beginning~~~ >.<")
Ohya! because Inauguration Day, we have fireworks after the football game, so, worth staying! 

Btw, people said I dressed like American! hahahah~

Steamboat with the fam!

Steamboat/Hotpot is one of my favorite type of food because it just brings us all together as a family by sharing food, 
great conversation and build the relationship.
Didn't expect that they will text me in the morning and invited me to their house for late lunch,
didn't see them since last semester, and I guess this is a great time to hang out and meet them! 
Ying and Dannis came and picked me up from campus, and went to Jasmine's house, 
she prepared all kinds of meat, seafood, some vegetables, and noodles! Yes, food!!!!
Blessed to know them, with their kindness and warm welcoming, I truly enjoy myself with them.
Tian Tian, a lil cute shy girl who came to me and started to play with me, she is so adorable!!! 
After lunch, we played a board game and it was really fun!!!! You have to earn the money and purchase some land and buildings, 
but that will cause some consequences too!
Forgot the name of the board game, but I will definitely meet them and play that again!!!

Inauguration Day!!!




So.... our university has a new president!
Because of this, I was being chosen and be part of the committee, not just planning,
but also helping up on the Inauguration Day. Work together with my friends, Lena and Jaxon! Wohooo!!!!

Dr. Frederick Whitt is our 12th President, who is very friendly, and we had cookout lunch thing
with him and his wife in the school! With music, free t-shirts, and good food. Isn't that cool!?

Amos is turning 21!!!!

总在营会结束后第一个想和他视讯聊心得,
总在无聊时打给他烦他要他听我讲话,
总在路上看到“海贼王”的东西会忍不住拍下来传给他看,
总在旅行买手信时想起他却又懒惰把礼物寄给他,
总在与别人聊天时忍不住炫耀一下与他像属灵朋友的关系,

总想帮他物色女朋友却又觉得目前似乎没有女生配得上他,
总在彼此服事时互相代祷,互相鼓励。

致我幽默又帅气的弟弟(你生日当然好话要说一下),生日蒙恩!!!
期待你的生命继续因为有神在当中而继续影响其他人的生命,我一直都为着有你这样的属灵战友而向神献上感恩。
愿神引领你,保护你,祝福你,使你在奔走祂的道路上经历祂丰盛的恩典。
 ________________________________________________________

在弟弟生日这一天,特别和他视讯,除了聊一些有的没的,最令我难忘和感动的是我们竟然在聊事工的现状以及未来的发展。
从我们各自的经历(我在美国上课,暑假以及服事的经历;他则在台湾当志工,在马来西亚服事的经历) 中,一同看有什么可以学习的,
他分享他的感动,我分享我的心得,彼此鼓励,实在是一副很美丽的画面。
有这个犹如属灵朋友的弟弟是我的福分,也十分珍惜有这样的姐弟关系,迫不及待想见面聊更多!

Coffee Time with Kourney

Discovered a coffee cafe with Kourtney!
She heard from everyone about my summer, and everyone told her that she must talk to me, so.....
We decided to meet up, grab a cup of coffee and chat.
A  lovely place with coffee and dessert! I ordered a chocolate latte and red velvet cupcake.
Enjoy the moment sharing what God had done in my life in this summer, give all praise to Him!

Blessed when your roommate prepared lunch and waited for you after class!!!

Glad to be back!










My roommate was so happy and excited when she sees me back!!! 
So much to share especially my overwhelming joy from serving!

LifeGame in Pittsburgh!

Living in the light of eternity changes your priorities. -Rick Warren

Has this opportunity to serve in Lifegame in Pittsburgh, what an amazing experience!
Meet my good friend Joshua, and other core members Lui Xiang, and Matthew from Malaysia!
Overwhelming joy when I saw them, gave them a hug, and greet them with our local Malaysian slang. hahahah
 Started our volunteer training, found out that there are two other volunteers from Malaysia too!!
This is great!!!!
Look at the boss! 
Joshua, he is the person in charge of Life Impact Ministry, he looks very serious when he works, 
but fun when he gets to relax, so glad that we can serve together again!!!
Camp normally very packed and busy with the tight schedule, even though busy, 
but everyone still tries their best to practice and discuss so that we bring out the message to the participants. 
(Normally we have food during those time~~)
My role for this LifeGame was MC and mime, prayed about it and bring out the best to the participants!
One of the highlights was having supper with Malaysians!!!!!
Bryan said the three Visitors never been to IHOP, so.... he decided to bring them there! 
So, we went at 12:30a.m. and ate until 2:30a.m. chatting, sharing, and laughing for the whole time!
I love that!!!
After that, Bryan said they never been to Walmart, so...... we went to Walmart at 2:30a.m.
This sounds so crazy but memorable, especially when you meet people from your hometown or country,
and found the long lost vibes from them, who cares?! hahah 

Last day, wrap up and lead the participants to share their thoughts and what have they learned, 
packed our stuff and have our group pictures taken!!! 
There are some Malaysian participants too!! wohooo!!!
We took core-team photos together too because every time the core-team combination will be different, so have to cherish this moment.  

Enjoy every chance to serve, influence, and to bless. 
No reserved, no regrets, no retreat.
