“Oh, hey, you are my suite-mate!” was the first sentence to the first friend I met at Timmer dorm in Kuyper College premises. 11 years have passed and we have been there for each other at different stages of our lives. There are some friends with whom many days, several months or years will have passed between conversations, but at every encounter, it will have … Continue reading I Bet You Don’t Have a Friend Like Mine!
On this day, we were in Nepal 3 years ago. The last time we were in Nepal was when we only had Mr. P back in 2008. But, this was after having all our three kids.

They won’t see light most part of the day, as blackouts are quite frequent and have become a part of life. I showed my … Continue reading Poor Grandparents Don’t Have Driveway!

However, they have found joy and their purpose in their lives doing so. For me as a spectator, it never made complete sense of it. It still does not. Last night, we had an EF1 tornado that … Continue reading Scary Moments Staying Behind the Wheels During Tornado
This is the first time ever that the car I was riding in slid like this. Our car uncontrollably danced on the freeway before it went to the ditch in just a blink of our eyes. Picture below, we can see how much we skidded from the road. Fortunately, there was no vehicle coming behind while few other vehicles were at the safe distance.

Yes, this is my very own old pair of shoes. There is nothing special about this shoes. Nonetheless, there are lots of memories that take me aback to my past rugged years. I cannot write all those things… I will get quite emotional since they are very personal. But I want to let you know that we should not judge people from their outlook.
