Today I reflect back on my life pre-LDR.
I was a man.
Well… that hasn’t changed.
Let me begin again. I was a man with simple goals in life: live for God, find a woman, and work in the entertainment industry.
I’ll tell you now, I had noooo idea the impact each of those things would have in my life. Living for God has required giving up some things in my life, as well as taking on some challenges I felt were impossible. And if I had tried by my strength, they would have been impossible. But hey, God has a way of making the impossible possible. Continue reading “Sometimes you just look crazy”
So the new kitchen has a built in Cleanometer. I must say, it is incredibly effective. The slightest sign of food left out and it goes off. Dishes have to be 100% clean when put away or you’re in trouble.
To be honest? I do love that. It helps my somewhat lazy self remain motivated about a chore I do not enjoy: keeping the kitchen clean. I’m one who can leave dishes sitting for 24 hours and do them once a day. But I don’t have that option here. Gotta clean them straight away and make sure the benches shine.
But there’s something I hate about this Cleanometer. Continue reading “Built in Cleanometer”
Last week my wife and I moved to a new residence on Saipan. And I gotta say, I am loving the change. We went from a small, dark apartment surrounded by concrete to a small, naturally lit apartment up on the hills of Saipan. Now we’re surrounded by nature, and there’s a beautiful breeze most days.
There’s a great little balcony which is shrouded in shade in the afternoons; a perfect place to to sit and write. This is the reason I opted for a laptop over a desktop PC. I wanted the option to sit out in nature and soak in the beauty of God’s creation as I work. Continue reading “The new office”
My wife and I are sick, so for our date night I whipped up a coconut chicken curry. Loads of ginger, garlic and chilli. Mmmmm.
Brittany treated us to a dessert of boiled garlic water. We stood, towels draped over our heads, sniffing the fumes.
But the real treat? That came once the water cooled. Continue reading “Cooking for colds”
A pushy uses an entire carpark spot. On a busy street.
One day, if I live here long enough, sights like this will cease to amaze me. For now, however, I remain baffled.
It’s moments like this that are why I love this place so much: because it’s ridiculous, and you just gotta laugh.
Happy New Year, folks! I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years.
To those wonderful people who follow my blog, apologies for the lack of posts. My wife and I were in the States for Christmas and a restating of vows/wedding ceremony for her family to attend. I hoped to get some more time to post while gone, but it was too busy.
Being on the mainland for a few weeks was fun and we loved it. Getting to see a few movies in the cinema, shops that had what you needed (for low prices), and cool weather were all great…
But it wasn’t home. Continue reading “18 things that make Saipan home”
My trip to the shops yesterday would be considered a frustrating chore in most places. By Saipan standards? Just another day in the life of. Continue reading “Saipan Shopping Adventures”
