Canadian visa

Just a little note today, so that I remember...
After a few weeks of expecting and waiting, today Lan's passport is back with the Canadian visa stamped on one of the pages! Thank you, Lord, for that!
It was a breeze application, no problems at all!

I am sure he's looking forward to go to Montreal... but, gosh, time flies! July is already at the tip! I can't wait... for our 2nd anniversary, for our coming holiday, and for our yet-to-come promising future!

Ps. I am not going to Canada with him, that's why I said it's only Lan's passport. Still, I am looking forward to it, because a week after he returns from Montreal, we are flying to Dubai, spend several nights there and then off to Bali for 3 weeks! Hehehe...

I am thankful...

for my faithful Father
for my supportive & beloved husband
for my family, whom believe in everything I do
for my supervisors
for my dearest sisters and friends I met in my life
for every little thing that happens in me

I am thankful to The One and Only faithful Father.
Without YOU, I am nothing!

PhD crisis!

To GOD be the glory...
For the things He has done!
A note to myself!
I won't lie to myself any more... that I do struggle in my PhD at the moment. I feel as if I lost my motivations and visions as to why I do this. Things have gotten even worse when I start to think about my little family. As a married woman, I have the desire to have kids and be a full-time mother... especially since I've been on education for such a long period of time, it is always nice to think that when, one day, I can take a break for awhile by being a full-time housewife and a mother off course! However, when I start to think about my future of being a housewife, I start to see my current 'occupation' negatively; boring and not interesting at all. I am pulled between the two; reality and future (my desire)...

I have discussed this with Lan several times, and I am so blessed to have him as such a great husband. He never pushes me to one side or another, instead, he is always by my side all the way. H…

Down the memory lane

On Tuesday, Lan and I took a day off as we agreed, just to unwind and have some us-time. Thank The Lord for such a wonderful day, summery, lots of sunshine with some cool breeze.
We went to the World museum Liverpool. We had been there before, in 2006 I think. That time there were 4 of us going as classmates... Yeah we were classmates that time, not knowing the two of us will come back some years later as husband and wife. Oh what life can bring to the future is amazing... God's plans no one can fathom!

So, in the morning, before I got ready, I was busy in the kitchen to fulfill Lan's special request for lunch: my homemade sandwiches. Been awhile since I made those sandwiches... Glad I did make them, because Lan loves them so much. It was just really simple sandwiches; fried eggs, sliced tomatoes, lettuces and slices of ham. But, simple things when you make it with your sincere thought and whole heart really go a long way... It really becomes meaningful.
I was happy to see him ea…
