Instagram: To a new world

In line with Mama Kat's writer's workshop, I was in the mood for an  instagram~ where I would glance through my photos from last week, choose one, and share the back story.

Hence, here's the photo. It shows my elder and younger daughters so excited to be aboard a local barge. We were on our way to a new life...

I finally decided to try settling down in the city where my hubby was recently employed as a college mentor. An eight-hours drive away from home ~ we were moving towards a new environment, new schools, new neighbors, new world. We then found a nice 2 bedroom-apartment and appropriate schools for our kids. And yes, finally, I was hired in the university where my hubby was teaching.

Amidst all the uncertainties, God truly works in an amazing way! I was so elated with our decision. Finally, we can live as a complete family, again, fully geared for new waves of adventures.

The clear white clouds in this photo also encouraged me to share this post to Wednesday Whites, the first time after five months (my apologies for being inactive for so long). It's good to be back!

Pink heater

These days are freezing! Living in a subtropical country, we have winters without snow but our winter is so humid thus awfully cold. Aside from warm comforters, we take comforts on heaters. My friend brought this electric heater home and it's so cute in pink, thus perfect for our pink meme...

The cute pink heater. No, it's not an electric fan lol.

Happy New Year!!!

Almost everybody went to Taipei to watch the spectacular fireworks at Taipei 101 that cost millions of dollars. For the remaining lazy people like us, we just got contented with what our university can offer. We were catered by a parade of colorful booths probably a hundred selling various Taiwanese cuisines and hosting games, a lively concert by famous local artists, and fireworks display on top of the 7-floored university library. After satisfying our hungry stomachs and that means surviving the heavy traffic of people especially along the food stalls, I, my daughter and some friends sat on the grasses by the lake facing the library, waiting for the countdown to new year. We ate, we chatted and ignored the freezing temperature. After the countdown (ended up with hoarse voices), we then went to a tea shop to continue our chitchats and further went to a movie theater to watch Tom Cruise's MI-4. At about 4:30 dawn, we then proceeded to eat breakfast together till 6:30 AM. I know it's a terrible way to start a new year (that is being outside of the house), as my mom would say, we would end up nocturnals for the rest of the year lol. Hopefully not. I guess this is what we get for being away from home, and having our friends as our only family here to greet the new year with.

Wishing you all a prosperous new year too! May 2012 be better for all of us!
