Share Your World – Week of March 12, 2018

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

Really? The only distant uncle I know of, who I had recently gotten acquainted, is in Hawaii and if he left me $50,000 in his will, I would most definitely invest it into something. Not stock though, I’ve taken enough risk into that market. I don’t know but it will be something worth while.

What sound or sounds do you love?

I love the sound of water flowing downstream, not in the rapid kind of way, that sound I do not love. I love the sound of birds chirping outside my window. I also love the sound of leaves rustling in the summer breeze. That sound makes me feel cool and refreshed. Last but not least, I love the sound of summer rain.

What’s your middle name?  Why?

I don’t have a middle name. There are no such thing as middle name in Chinese names. Most names in China involves two to three Chinese characters – one Chinese character for last name (always come at the beginning) and one to two Chinese characters for first name. Some people have two characters for last name but that’s not very common, I don’t think. Usually, a person’s full name contains three Chinese characters.

On the other hand, my mom has a middle name. It’s her maiden name. She had to adopt my step-father’s last name when she married him. In China, a woman is not required to adopt her husband’s last name when she gets married. Therefore, still no middle name.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

This will be my third attempt and this time, I am reading from the modern English version. This version is much easier to understand and I am already up to chapter 22. Hooray! That definitely made me smile. It’s the farthest I’ve ever read in the Bible.

Something I appreciated last week would be baking. It is a very relaxing activity.

  1. There was a Japanese trend a few years back to use really obscure and complicated kanji in given names. Imagine growing up with a name that uses two 18-plus stroke kanji that no one even knows how to pronounce, or getting an inkan-stamp carved. 「(゚ペ)
