Taiwan is a part of me. It’s where I lived as a young child, and it’s the place to which I returned as an adult. Soon, it will be my first home with Charles as we begin our married life together. I love the culture, the art, the beauty, the language, the food, the people–I love Taiwan!
Because of our connection with this beautiful country, Charles and I want to bring a bit of Taiwan into our wedding. So far, we’ve decided on two touches of Taiwan that we’ll definitely incorporate: fans for the bridesmaids and umbrellas for the table centerpieces at the reception. Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ve chosen:
Happy Easter! 復活節快樂!
We celebrated Easter Sunday at New Life Bilingual Church, a Southern Baptist church plant here in Kaohsiung. It’s the church that my sisters and I have been attending this year. We love the pastor and the people. The preaching is great, the music is encouraging, and the fellowship is rich. This year, Easter was extra-special for my sisters and me because our mom is here visiting for two weeks, so we were together for Easter Sunday. Continue reading “A Multicultural Easter”

Today’s is a blog update via photos. Charles has been here in Taiwan for Christmas vacation, and we’ve had a superb time together so far. We’ve spent time relaxing at home, sightseeing and eating out with friends, and connecting with family (here and afar). Since we have only these three weeks together between now and the wedding this summer, I’m savoring every waking moment. Continue reading “Memories for a Lifetime”
I just returned from a memorable trip to Hong Kong over Fall Break with my sisters. The initial purpose of the trip was for Ashleigh to renew her Taiwanese visa which had expired. However, when she realized that she had to take a trip out of Taiwan, we decided that we would make the most of it together. So we hopped on a plane and experienced everything from roller coasters to metro travel to dim sum to night markets in “Asia’s World City” (Hong Kong’s self-proclaimed title). We had a blast and made some wonderful memories. (Note: Ashleigh’s visa run was a success as well!) Continue reading “Hatchlings in Hong Kong”
