happy year of the dog

Wishing you all a very happy Chinese New Year - Year of the Dog! 新年快樂 萬世如意 心想事成 祝大家有個旺年. My family had our New Year dinner on New Year's Eve - a ten-course meal with lots of seafood, topped off with the distribution of laisee (red packets)! Mom decided to get into the festive spirit by decorating our house with lanterns and words of blessings, and also bought lots of little snacks to go into our New Year serving platters... oh the traditions! Anyway my voice is still recovering from last week's Youth Camp... a four-day, three-night event at Serpentine Baptist Camp. It was awesome to be a part of the team. I got to learn a lot of new names and faces, got messy with eggs, ham, chickens, water, etc. The highlights (well just to name a couple) for me were the live painting and the spectacular Serpentine skyshow. In brief I had a great time getting to know new people and also got to spend more time with God. Looking forward to see the potential that Youth is able to unfurl this year.
