We drink ten toasts rapidly from
The rhinoceros horn cups
Ten cups, and still we are not drunk.
We still love each other as
We did when we were schoolboys.
Tomorrow morning mountain peaks (or ocean)
Will come between us, and with them
The endless, oblivious
Business of the world

-Tu Fu

I'll pop in here every now and then because I still have things to say/share.  So, not retiring yet :D :D
Looking forward to the europtrip, turning dream into reality.  Always wanted to sit way up the calderas overlooking the Aegean Sea, wind blowing in my hair, etc... and see history, masterpieces of artwork we only read about in History books, places, etc... Yeah, looking forward ;D ;D ;D

Marriage & Family Life / Re: Opposite Sex Friends

Yes it's possible..  I mean if other race can be friend with the opposite sex why can't us Hmong?  After all, we're the same human being?  Are we saying we hmoob people have less self control? We don't know our boundaries? We can't think for ourselves?  If other race can do it so can we.  Maybe we just never put it to the test or maybe we did but we just don't talk about it  OR maybe we're just too afraid to go outside our comfort zone.

Hello, zoo siab koj rov tuaj txog zos hmoob os.  Lub zos no ces tsis tshuas muaj pej xeem coob nyob lawm tshua yog muaj neeg niaj hnub mus dha thiab ces zoo li lub zos tseem muaj pej xeem.  Yeej muaj ob peb nyug twg tseem nyob ces lub zos no kuj tsis tau npov xuas. Yog nyob nyob tuaj txog no los hos los xauj lub niag zos no every now and then.  Lub niaj zos no mas tsis zoo tuaj tas mus li thiab vim lub ntuj dav li dav tsis yog lub zos no xwb.  Tabsis lub zos no zoo tuaj sawm ntawv nws ntug dej pov bottles xa nrog dej ntwv mus ces twb kaj siab lawm....

Nyob zoo nawb... 

These days there are many way to meet people not just the traditional route anymore.  Use dating apps, social media, interested related group, professional org, charity org, etc... people can be found everywhere except sitting at home.  As soon as you step out your door, there's people.  I think people should not be too focus on finding love rather just surround yourself with good people and love will find you. 

For sure one that loves, respect, and value you.   Yes marriage is building  a life together but no matter how busy you are building this life (school, work, communities services, your reputation in the community, raising children, etc) do not forget each other, the needs of each others. Sometimes in life, married couple are so busy building everything else at the expense of neglecting their own needs an want.  In the end, you gain everything but loses each other.

That's a lie women are telling themselves, thinking no one outside of their spouse will/can love them.  The world is full of men but I think for women to find that person/love, we need to value ourself, not be like a fish dying without water, a woman dying without the love of a man.  The key to finding love is be yourself, value yourself and a man will value you.  If he does not, he's not the one.  A man who truly values you will find a treasure in you.

Nothing good will come out from such affair (that's what it'll be).  If you play with fire you will get burn.  I would say if a person is that miserable in the marriage, have the courage to leave and do everyone a favor and yes one door may closes and another open.  Life is full of possibilities but start on the right foundation and love will blooms....a love that you can be proud of, both can be proud of.

Everything you need to succeed is within you (2 hands, 2 feet, a brain, and an able body).

Making a List, Checking It Twice

The Calderas are calling.... and this year I'm listening.  Can't wait.  A few short months away but I need to start packing! Calderas...Cap ri, Amalfi, I'm coming soon!  Can't wait to meet you and stand on your shores.  :blob10: :blob5: :blob5: :hello2: :hello2:

Hung_Low, what do you think of SAPA?  Did you go to Ha Giang?

Biden, he's a little soft and Trump, he's extreme and lack moral conscience...

but it's a coin tossed, I'm thinking.  50/50.
