Missing Things, Missing People


I miss my church community in Taipei. Friends often hear me complain about my tasks every Sunday in the last two years- waking up extra early to be at the sacristy, coordinating big to small things, buying cakes etc etc- but now that I'm not doing any of it, I'm starting to miss 'community' life.

To somehow make up for it, I sent messages to church mates last week and asked how's everyone doing. I know they have their regular Sunday posts on FB but it's different if you send a message directly to check on them. I also attended The Feast a few Sundays ago (photo above) to see if it'll have the same 'community' feeling. Although The Feast is a big group divided into several smaller committees, it was so nice to see young people serving together and building their own communities anchored in faith.

Speaking of serving, I now spend most of my free time (not a lot, sadly) preparing dishes at home to serve my brother. My goal is to feed him healthy meals and to make him stop from ordering fast food.
I like to think that I'm quite successful in my mission. I no longer hear the doorbell ring for any Jollibee, Mcdonald's or KFC food deliveries.


... And can I just share how I'm in love with this half-baked madagascar ice cream from Mad Mark's? It was my reward after finishing a project at work.


Mom and I watched The Lion King at The Theatre (Solaire) few nights ago. I can't believe it was my mom's first time to watch a musical. She was very impressed with the A Circle of Life performance and kept saying "Ang galing, ang galing!" The show was really good but Les Miserables will always be my number 1. I have yet to see Miss Saigon :( I hope someday we'll get to watch it on Broadway.
