This week I started teaching a 3 week workshop on preparing for English speaking tests, and one question was "Why are you studying English?" One of the students, a 16 year old nursing major, has excellent English, so I expected her to say something like she hoped to work in a hospital overseas someday, but I was rather shocked at her answer..... "I want to marry a foreigner and have a cute mixed baby". @@

We had the privilege to be a part of our good friend's engagement and wedding ceremonies. Weddings here are so special with banquets, congratulations toasts to each table, pictures as we leave with the couple, and three bridal dresses with grand entrances.

Two ladies from Arizona are visiting Taiwan for a few weeks to help us with Easter activities. They have colored eggs with all ages. Other activities include an Easter egg hunt, a egg relay race with chopsticks, and songs with motions. It's a lot of fun. This Sunday is Easter Sunday. :D

My husband and I went exploring recently and came across this Hakka village south of WanLuan. My husband asked the deer for directions, haha.

hi - I made this bread yesterday for a friend, and my husband says there are good enough to eat without butter or anything else on them. Making the hot rolls was so easy that I thought I would share the recipe here:

English churches in Pingtung and Kaohsiung: Sometimes foreigners will wonder where they can go to church in the Pingtung City area where they can understand the service. Pingtung City has at least two English services that I know of, and they are across the street from one another around the same time. A Catholic church and a Baptist church each hold English services around 4 pm. Contact Mr. Chris Wright for details about the Baptist service. here. Here is the Chinese for the Djutien church address: New Life Church (Sunday 4pm, bilingual), Kaohsiung International Church (KIC, all-English, Sunday 4:30 pm) and Bilingual Community Church (BCC) has two morning services.

The campus is pretty at night now due to the lights on the pedestrian crossing, and Christmas trees and poinsettias around campus. There will be a few parties in classes and departments this week. Generally, we see a lot less decorations and fanfare than in the States. I hope I can get into the Christmas spirit soon.
