nǐmen hǎo!




November 4, 2009 was our last day of Mandarin class. That picture above was taken right after our group's presentation. The presentation was a part of our final exam. It served as our speaking exercise.

I'm so thankful for the experience. I had a great time learning the language. Wu laoshi and Zhou laoshi are great teachers. They never get tired answering our questions. They are also very patient specially during reading and listening exercises. They are very encouraging and supportive too. My classmates are also great. Our class is lively (almost all the time). I said "almost" because there were also times when we feel "information overload". Everyone is helping one another.

I'm a beginner and still have a long, long way to go. Someday, I would like to be able to update my blog using Mandarin. (By the way, I'm also interested in the Japanese and Korean languages.)

wu lǎoshī hé zhou lǎoshī, fēicháng xìexie nǐ!

nǐmen, zàijiàn! =)

current theme song

This Is Me
(Camp Rock)



I've always been the kind of girl
That hid my face
So afraid to tell the world
What I've got to say
But I have this dream
Right inside of me
I'm gonna let it show, it's time
To let you know
To let you know

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light, shine on me
Now I've found, who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be
This is me

Do you know what it's like
To feel so in the dark
To dream about a life
Where you're the shining star
Even though it seems
Like it's too far away
I have to believe in myself
It's the only way

This is real, This is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light, shine on me
Now I've found, who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be
This is me

You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
I need to find you, I gotta find you
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me
I need to find you, I gotta find you

This is real, this is me
I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, now
Gonna let the light, shine on me
Now I've found, who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be
This is me
You're the missing piece I need
The song inside of me (this is me)
You're the voice I hear inside my head
The reason that I'm singing
Now I've found, who I am
There's no way to hold it in
No more hiding who I want to be
This is me

baby, welcome to the family

I recently lost a dear friend and mentor, Kru Valdez. And, I never thought that this incident would have this impact on me. But God, in His goodness, surprised me with a good news (just a few hours ago). My bestfriend Mie, is preggy! And she's due on Sept. 24! Wow! Her baby and I might celebrate the same birthday. Happy bday to us! Happy bday to us! Hehe, I'm just so excited and so happy for my dear friend Mie. XD

Indeed, there's a time for everything. 

1 There is a time for everything,

       and a season for every activity under heaven:

2 a time to be born and a time to die,

       a time to plant and a time to uproot,

3 a time to kill and a time to heal,

       a time to tear down and a time to build,

4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,

       a time to mourn and a time to dance,

5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

       a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

6 a time to search and a time to give up,

       a time to keep and a time to throw away,

7 a time to tear and a time to mend,

       a time to be silent and a time to speak,

8 a time to love and a time to hate,

       a time for war and a time for peace.

 

11 He has made everything beautiful in its time.
