Christmas 2014 in Korea

Have been keeping up with the news and updates for the missing Air Asia flight. I am usually very upset by news of plane accidents because the thought of having to die alone or die drowning scares me. During the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 and flight 17 tragedies, I was also in Korea. Right now, the last thing I want to do is to take a plane back to Singapore. What I was really sad about is that the Koreans who were onboard (the family of three) were Christian missionaries spreading the gospel in Indonesia. Why do God allow such things to happen to anyone, whether Christians or non-Christians, and especially to people who are doing God's work?


I am back from my short trip to Taiwan and kimchi boy surprised me with a mini Christmas tree when I arrived home in Daejeon. Having a Christmas tree meant a lot to me because every year, my family would put up a huge Christmas tree together.. While in Korea, I don't think people actually celebrate Christmas.. At least not for his family. We even managed to find a log cake which was extremely difficult to find in Korea! I am really touched by his efforts to make Christmas special for me.
