One thing I really want to do now is to be more supportive to Fasha, and always be positive about what he does. No, being positive is not always about agreeing on something. You can still be critical but in a positive way.
This post now is about our weekend soccer games. Fasha had a total of four games, two on Saturday and two on Sunday.

I have been following the Changing Game Project since last year, and the book and the blog posts have been inspiring; I personally met John O’Sullivan himself when he stopped by in Madison. But it does not mean anything when we, parents, do not follow the inspiring messages, right! Knowing and doing have always been two very different things and they apply to almost all aspects of our lives.

Yes, indeed, four months after my last post. It shows my lacking to discipline myself to write. This blog should have been a medium for my 15-minute a day writing of anything!
“Celebrating” the four months of inactivity, our family started a new journey with a new Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler. We bought it on Saturday during the Thanksgiving holiday. With a $10 coupon from Amazon plus free 1-day shipping from Discover, it arrived on Monday for a total of $67.99. Let me continue on this price tag, when I looked for a link to this item in the amazon website, I was shocked that the price went up t0 $92.50, before $10 off from Amazon That is about $25 increase! I did not realize that the griddler was among the items on sale during Thanksgiving holiday. But now I am so happy that I got it at the right time! :2thumbup.

It has been quite a while since the last entry. Life has been both hectic and fun, as a student, as a father of two, and certainly as a husband. My wife is finishing up her thesis, so it has been a real journey in this particular case. Her struggle as a medical doctor taking a complete different turn in her study in Southeast Asian Studies is absolutely something :P.
Generally, her struggle is a typical case of interdisciplinary work. My job has been to stand by her and helped her understand than many other interdisciplinary scholars have had similar experience like hers. It is not an easy job, as some of you would know. I am not perfect. Our frustrations often ended up in many unfinished discussions and even led to other personal issues. But together we have realized that this is just a part of our journey to gain knowledge. Continue reading Hello, again: short updates →
We definitely had a blast! We are grateful for the opportunity and can’t wait for the next trip back to Orlando.
Nisi was very excited about this party. She herself selected who she wanted to be in her party. She had 5 friends and had a lot of fun playing water. Quite a small and engaging party. Happy birthday Nisi!
Fasha definitely had a blast in his small birthday party in Wilderness Wisconsin Dells. He invited Min-Sung and Yoav. Coincidentally, Min-Sung and Yoav shared many similarities. Min-Sung was our neighbor right above us when we were in the #506 building, while Yoav was in #907 building also right above us. And of course they go to the same school and play in the same soccer club.
Happy birthday Fasha! And thank you Min-Sung and Yoav for coming to celebrate Fasha’s birthday.
