I am ...

I am ...
(written by Yu-Hua on June 30, 2006 at 4:30 a.m.)

I am an Oriental
who is natural
and sometimes sentimental.

I am also political
but not that radical.

Digging everything spiritual
rather than something material
is always my principle.

love is strange & i found a reason

Those who are looking for the two songs, "Love Is Strange" and "I Found a Reason":

Feel free to add me (lyh626@hotmail.com) to your MSN Messenger buddy list.

My body, mind and soul were as if melted by listening to the two songs.

Ciao! Muah!

ps. you farted? 'cause you blew me away! (i dig this silly pickup line!)

oh! and, thank you Roxy in Taipei/Taibei and Nana in Hong Kong!

that's me...

"Your Sample Reading:

How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring new territory, and are not happy confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreams and visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You love to have a goal, something to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on to something else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for you. You have great faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and failure.

The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family, your childhood, those places you associate with safety and security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession."

'Dear Joseph,

在課堂上用半開玩笑半認真的口吻 跟同學們主動下戰帖:
我會在位子上面聆聽 ,
臨場狀況掌控等等 .
我5/28的成績, 6/16會出來,
你們也 急起直追吧!"
以打敗我為目標 :-)
戰帖下出去 說到做到

the cute little albert

I just logged on to Angela's personal website and found that she had updated her photo albums adding her son's pics. Dr. Yu-Hui Angela Fu was one of my teachers in graduate school. I used to visit her website from time to time, but haven't been there for a long while.

Look at those pics; look at the cute little Albert (23 pages, 257 pics)! I'm so jealous. I wish I had a SON. I do have a SUN, a tattoo on my lower back though. The SUN on my lower back is about three years older than Angela's SON.

we all lie? all the time?

"Other finding from this and other researches: men lie no more than women, but they tend to lie to make themselves look better, while women are more likely to lie to make the other person feel better. Extroverts tend to lie more than introverts."

For more:
We all lie, all the time


I'm a woman. I'm an introvert. Most of the students from my different classes think I'm so outgoing and talkative in class. I love my work, passionately! That makes me a totally different person while working. Well, that's only when I'm in class. [As my family members, relatives, friends and I myself know,]I'm a very very quiet person in private.

Yes, I lie to make the other person feel better, and I seldom lie. ;-)

love wins

love wins
for women suffering from domestic violence in Taiwan
by Good Shepherd Sisters Taiwan (a Catholic non-profit organization)

It costs a person only N.T.$100 (U.S.$3.11) to get a LOVEWINS wrist ring.

I'm gonna get two. One is for my birthday on June 26; the other is for Steph in the States for her birthday on June 20.

Maybe I'll get some more for others around me.
