Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! :)

In Taiwan the Christmas day is already passed but in some other countries Christmas is still not passed yet, so I think it's still OK to say Merry Christmas now. Wish you all have a great Christmas time today.

Some status updates for the Christmas party of Ulead HQ and InterVideo Taiwan. Well, not too many people came to the party (about 1/4 people of both companies) and the live band did not come as expected, but we still have lots of fun and joy in the party! I and other Ulead/IVI EWC members had prepared 12 extra gifts for the people who joined the party, and the 2 biggest gifts (Play Station 2 gaming boxes) were all been given to Uleaders: Quality Assurance Engineer, Patty Dai, and the Senior Financial Manager, Julia. Let us congratulate them to be the winners!

For the pictures of the Christmas party, you can check the pictures photoed by my colleagues.

Well, as I mentioned in my previous post, today is my birthday. I and Rebecca did not go for travelling as planned because she has to deliver 2 Beta cam tapes for her company, GOOD TV, to the broadcasting company. If she cannot deliver the tapes on time, some TV programs in the evening will have problems. So, by Rebecca's request, I decide to go with her and spend some time to visit the food market in downtown after her delivered the tapes. Well, I think the foods are delicious, but they are a little expensive. But why care about the price? It's my birthday!

GOODTV is a Christian satellite TV station in Taiwan, and also is the only Chinese Christian satellite TV station in the world (at the present time). Now it's been located at channel 15 in Taiwan and has an Internet broadcasting site. Rebecca already works for this company for more than 6 years now. If you can understand Chinese, you can go to http://www.goodtv.tv to know more information about this TV station.

Last night I and Rebecca went to Jedidiah's church for the Christmas Eve activity. We had heard 2 stories about how the lives to be changed by Jesus. Rebecca is been moved by the first story. Well, I think God is really good for He always watches us and never sleeps, and we are been protected by Him and his angels. I think maybe it's God telling me that I should be strong and keep faith on Him. I do believe it is.

All right, I think it's time for me to go to bed now. (It's 4:00am here in Taiwan) See you next time.
