Two more months to the end of 2014. The challenging days of October are over and the more demanding months of November and December are coming up soon.
This month I had the opportunity to travel again and Tiger girl and I went on our first Mother and Daughter trip to Taiwan. It was a fun eating and shopping trip for us as we savoured the mouth watering dishes that the city Taipei had to offer.
It was the first time that I was travelling solo with her however it was not something that made me apprehensive as we travel quite often together. I only had to do some minor adjustments as I did not have extra hands to help with additional luggage in the event that she falls asleep while we are travelling.
We experience travelling on the various modes of transportation available in Taiwan. We went around via the subway, High speed rail and taxi to the different places of interest.
It was raining quite a lot during our stay in Taiwan and I had to look for indoor activities to occupy Tiger girl. We tried out making Tang Yuan at this cafe. They boiled the Tang Yuan for us to eat after we had made them. Unfortunately Tiger girl didn’t really like the taste and she passed on eating any that she made.
We end up doing quite a bit of crafts while on holiday in between window shopping and eating. It was a fun and relaxing holiday for me.
Besides shopping we did visit parks and a lake where we saw birds and flowers. There was even a bee on one!!
I’ve restarted my drive and embarked on a new challenge now that the prize has been stated and the staked upped. I’ve redefined myself as a Work-In-Progress and am constantly tweaking myself so that I can perform better.
I’ve been doing quite a bit of reading to and the latest book which I have read was Small Talk by Amy Julia Becker where I learned how great her commitment and faith is in GOD. She has been given the challenge of bringing up a special needs child and shared with her readers her struggles that she has as a parent.
It is never too late to put in effort in building up a strong relationship with GOD and I’ve completed a 8 week study on the book of Esther this month with a clearer understanding of how GOD works his magic.
