Old and New

To live in another country, you can either embrace it or regret it.

As for me, I’m totally embracing it! Hehe…

It’s been almost 2 weeks and I must say I’m so grateful with the old and new friends I’m meeting.

This weekend has been a blast – people, food, laughter. It’s a time to take my mind off from my job hunting thoughts.

Last Friday, I jogged with friends at Central Park just here in Burnaby. Finally, we were able to do it after postponing it for many times. Well of course, after we jogged, we ate. Haha!photo 1 (2)

Saturday was fun day and fooood day! Hehe… My former colleague here in Accenture who has been my coach and mentor at work treat me for a fully loaded lunch in a Chinese restaurant. The food was really great. Too bad I wasn’t able to take pictures. But, really good lunch!

After that, I attended a birthday picnic party still at Central Park. Best part of the day. So many kids!

Sunday was church day and movie time after. My jogging buddies and I watched a Tagalog movie, not that we are fans of the actors but we just really wanted a good laugh. We got what we paid for. Haha! ย And of course, bubble tea to close the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a full weekend. ย Though I had to hit the gym when I got home yesterday. I had to burn calories. Haha!

I’m really an extrovert. I get so energized with people around. Hehe!

I thank God for relationships. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today has really been a meaningful day.

In today’s Sunday service, we have a guest speaker from Singapore, Ptr. Edmund Chan. His message was about our dreams which are not yet fulfilled. He left us 3 points to ponder upon.

Is your dream from God?
Are you discouraged with your lack of resource?
Are you depending on God for the fulfillment of your dream?

In the afternoon, together with friends, we spent Christmas party in Binondo with students of different nationalities. They were from Chinese, India, Korea, Nepal, Ghana and Iran. It was a very fun and meaningful event. To be able to share the love of God to these people who do not even know Jesus. It was such a privilege to be able to do that. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m hoping that they would dig in more the story of Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚

To God be all the glory!

Good night! ๐Ÿ™‚
