Old, but beautiful

I thought I would need to tell you a story, mostly because I love it and find it quite funny.  And, it give me an excuse to talk about my time in Battambang again. During the super fun BB-CHUE where I sat between Borey and Thai, I had a very interesting conversation with Borey and […]

Home

Whenever I move somewhere new there is always that period in which I’m learning, adjusting, and everything is this big, exciting adventure.  There are so many thing that are wonderful about this phase.  But, one that isn’t is that you are always searching for home. For a long time I tried to define what home […]

I want red bean!

Ok, so just to clarify this is a dessert. Or something you put in your green tea latte.  So maybe I shouldn’t use the word you, I should us the word I. Yes my roommate does call me Asian. Last time I was in the Korean airport one of the menu items was green tea […]

Retreat

Recently the staff at Logos (one of the campuses of Asian Hope) went on a retreat to Sihanoukville (aka Kampong Saom) for some rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.  Since I work for Asian Hope specifically (not Logos) they could have left me out, however, they were gracious and let me join in on all the fun. So happy […]

I spoke with a microphone.

If you worked with me at Buckhead Church you know how scared I would be to stand in front of staff meeting and speak with the microphone. You also probably know how scared I was of being on the stage at church, even during the week.  I mean, there are thousands of empty seats just […]

SHOPPING!!!!

I do so love to shop.  And there are many, many opportunities for browsing great options here in Phnom Penh.  One such opportunity is when you break your roommates bowl while eating breakfast.  Did I mention that we only had 2 bowls… both are hers?
