Frigid Climate Taipei
We're off to 2021, and the US seems to be in chaos with the oncoming of switching out Presidents. Not sure something like this has ever happened in history. However, a bit disappointing start to 2021. And the vaccination also seems to be a problem with distribution. This is tough indeed.
Meanwhile, here the temperatures have been cold and without heating. Definitely another adventure here. Earth quakes have resumed as well. Fortunately, nothing really major. Many have been caring and reached out to ask me how am i doing here? And here it is...
Well, the cultural difference is just the start. It's always different when you are actually in it -- just different. What does make it difficult is the earthquakes. One never know when it may strike. At times, there may be a warning given about 30 seconds in advance. I am thankful that the earthquakes have been pretty tamed. While 30 seconds advance warning doesn't sound like a lot, but it sure is. Grateful for that warning!
Other than that, adjust to the cold without the heat is something to get used to. Layering... lots of layering. And scarves have come in handy as well. All is well and will be grand!
Nowadays, I am always alert to the possibility of an earthquake striking.
Hello, hello, hello!!
Off we now go to the start of 2021, as many are very eager to say goodbye to 2020. There were just too much from 2020 and everyone is ready for a new start! As am I, very much!!
As I have now regained my mobility from my prior injury of a broken ankle. A very common break but with a very complicated and long recovery with many encounters, I am finally up and ready to go. And now being in Asia, a new start it is -- indeed! There are so many lessons that this common injury has taught me -- aside from being grateful, the one thing that is most importance is: patience!! Wow.. without mobility it is definitely another journey that is filled with doubts and loneliness often times. I am sure that some of you may well know.
Without further a do from my rambles, I have started again on this blog. My journey to educate people of wellness through natural resources and consumption of natural food is what this blog was set out to do. The human body is very intricate and unique. However, with the fast changes of the globally environment many are getting sick and falling apart. Especially during this pandemic. Our lives has changed -- as many more on a lockdown and unable to resume life as it used to be. Now, with this change, I will add some simple exercise to the wellness page. And along that some simple acupressure points that may be of help for minor simple things at home.
Today, I have launched a repost of Almonds to restart. Eating healthy is now more vital than ever before to better adjust to our new changing world of with Covid-19. Staying healthy and keeping our immune systems in top shape will be key going forward. In addition to staying healthy and keeping our immune system in top shape, we also need to eat well. Lastly, one MUST important factor that can make all these efforts absolute or obsolete -- sleep. With the invisible stress of the pandemic, we need to do our best to get enough sleep. Our bodies need sleep to rebuild and replenish the nutrients we give it. Muscles also need rest to recuperate and rebuild from exercises we do.
Once again, please keep in mind to not try or have some of the foods recommended from my post if you should have allergies or injuries or any other conditions that may lead you to a worse condition from trying or having items posted on this website. If you have any concerns, please reach out to your physicians to confirm before trying anything that you have not had before.
Additionally, I welcome comments and requests if you have any information are you interested in reading. Wishing everyone and their families well and happiness.
Happy New Year!! Everyone is happy to see 2020 go. What a year!! What a year!!
I've been in Asia not for almost 5 months. I can hardly believe it, time flies. Whether we are having a good time or a rough time, it just flies. And my focus is to make 2021 a good one!
For starters, I am grateful for my family and friends -- their continuous support and love has given me the courage to go on. As I have my faith: God is good -- all the time. Yes, even in my most trying moments, He is good. He has kept all those I love and care about, and everyone that has made an impact in my life all safe and sound during this horrific pandemic that has taken many. His love has blessed my surrounding members -- without these people, I would not be here today. More importantly, things would be far worse and a deeper struggle.
Additionally, I am grateful for opportunity(ies) that I have been given. Being here, living here in Asia has been a long time dream of mine. Those who has known me throughout the years know and have been very supportive in my decision to come here during this time. Being here, and having my support system here is immense. Another chance that I am witnessing God's love and blessings that He has showered upon me. So many things and situations and people I am grateful for. Of course, without His blessings, none of this would be made possible. Angels from above.
Starting a new year, this is my year of freedom to live out my dream of being here has come true. However, I do feel bad for not being able to stay in US to be around. Thank you everyone.
No dream is free, this is also one that I will fight and work hard to achieve one of my dreams.
Life is here now!
Here is the space where I will share about my passion and life.
