Nick and I had a 25 min talk this morning while I was looking after my class (bad teacher haha). I miss the boy and it’s been 3 years since I last saw him. He was my first ever student that I felt like I was really responsible for. I owe it to him for partly who I am in my work right now. I really desire to see him soon again.
I’ve been working on this indie film since February. I feel really blessed to see my name in IMDB soon. 🎥 one of the biggest blessings not just this year but in my entire life. Thank You Father 🙏
A present from my colleague from Taiwan! It’s a sign!
Today we had cookery again and it’s my mother’s spaghetti (yes, with the secret ingredient). The kids loved it! They had a chance to stir and pour sauce on to their pasta and a bit of parmesan on top.
Happy that there are things that I could look back and be happy with, even if it was all just fleeting.
This makes the whole appreciating the little things holds a lot of meaning to it.
Still hung over from the greatest weekend ever.
Thank You Lord.
Have i told you lately?
You cry because you’re too happy and you know it doesn’t last. This is exactly one of those things when I know and learn to live in the moment whenever he comes around.
Best Weekend so far. People, Places, Experiences.
I’ve been wanting this trip so bad and did all the preparations myself from looking for hidden beaches, booking hostels, transport and well.. Staying in one room with an American and a German and met really nice fellow backpackers in the hidden beach were all a bonus.
The sound of the waves and ocean breeze are making me high
Celebrated Easter today at work.
DAY 60 of my 100 happy days!
We practiced dancing for our Easter Celebration in class today. The kids have improved in their motor coordination and I’m very happy about that.
I also showed videos about Easter to them and Troy keeps on asking for “More Jesus!”. I am humbled by these little fellows.
No class tonight and was able to go home early. Simple joys.
And most importantly, I’M EXCITED.
"I like Jesus.. Jesus’ body fly to the sky.. You wanna see Jesus’ body, teacher Restine? We go to Legoland first then watch lego movie then see Jesus’ body.."
Coming from Troy, a 3 years old, who has never heard of Jesus because he’s raised in a religious Buddhist family. and today, he just saw an animated story about Easter in chinese. After that viewing, he came to me saying all those things with so much wonder and awe.
I hugged him so tight and felt goosebumps because truly, the Kingdom of heaven belongs to them.
Bought 3 bikini bottoms for $5 each at Cotton On. Summer here I come!!!
This tiger radler tastes awesome!
BonChon chicken is the best!!!!
Troy seems to be tearing up when he told me that he’s not going to have his Auntie (nanny) anymore because he’s already a big boy. I know how attached he is to his auntie and yeah it did break my heart hearing that from him. So I gave him a very tight hug and kissed his head and said that I’m still here.
Phelia is a lovely kid who loves me more.
God never brought me all the way to where I am now just to get me back to square one. Positivity all the way!
I was in the other room because they were having Chinese classes. I turned around to see him tiptoeing, taking his sweet time, to pass by and see me! Hahaha I feel so loved by this boy. I thank God for him.
Class ended early tonight! Woohoo! Yes, it’s something I’m happy about.
I’m tired and getting home early then lights off is the best part of the day.
