I’m Still Alive

Do you know that I have a blog post that is set to be published if I don’t update my blog for one week? It will inform you dear readers of mine that I have passed away, and I won’t be able to update the blog any more.

It is almost a week so I thought I’d better publish something.

No, I’m kidding. I don’t have such a post. But it would be a good idea, no?

Regular readers of my blog will notice that I have slowed my posting schedule from once a day, to once every two days, and now to once a week.

I have to apologize for the lack of updates. Work continues to be busy, and when I am home, there’s so many things to deal with that I don’t have time or energy to blog.

I have also signed up to help out in a mini freelance project for one of my old school mates. It’s a challenging task that is taking up quite a bit of my spare time. But I enjoy it because I’m learning a lot and getting a lot of experience, even though I am not charging anything.

Making things worse, I tore some ligaments in my foot. I put too much weight on it while sitting. I don’t really know how to explain, but it was really cold in the meeting room, and my toes went numb. And I put too much weight on my toes without realizing that I was doing damage to it. Sounds stupid huh?

I was on MC for the first two days of this week. Cannot even walk. It hurts even when the wind from the fan blew on my foot. Can’t sleep, can’t do anything with the constant pain. Thank God I’m married and got a wife to take care of me. I’m better now.

Last Sunday we had a very interesting dinner. It was a dinner at our church DUMC, a thanksgiving dinner / church dedication. They laid out tables all around the church compound, in the open.

Now, you know that it has been raining every evening for the past week right? On that day it started to rain all around us. We could see lightning flashes at the north, south, east and west.


A rainbow over Dream Centre before dinner started.

Pretty soon the sky became dark and peals of thunder came crashing down on us.

All those people passing by must be wondering why this crazy bunch of people were sitting out in the open having a scrumptious Foochow dinner (courtesy of Sitiawan Peking and Lido restaurants) when it was going to rain any time.

We could feel a slight drizzle (coming from the nearby rain) as we ate but there was no rain at the Dream Centre!

Anyway, I have got a lot of feedback that my site is always down. I am thinking of switching web hosts soon. In the mean time, one temporary solution is for you to subscribe to receive my posts via email.

Another alternative is for you to subscribe using my RSS feed.

Really sien with ExaBytes.

  1. Wow… it seems very beautiful in your picture. I like rain sometimes.

    Also, I’m sorry to hear that your foot is hurt. I hope it will heal soon!

    Adino: Yeah, the rainbow was very nice.
