Not many people knew that I performed in Southern Theatre or watched me dance before.  My husband came to one of my performance.  I believe that we still have the videotape of that. 

I am not a professional dancer, not even an amateur.  The dances I performed were Arabic Dance, Tap Dance, and Flamingo.  I like dancing.  It is just purely an interest - my passion for dance.  I also learned Modern Dance and African Dance.  Before having kids, I live a free life, swimming, spinning bike, playing racquetball, and attending dance schools.  Life is carefree.  I maintained a fit body.

I just got back from my 3-week vacation back to Taiwan .  This was our first time back to Taiwan in the heat of the summer.  We usually went back in the winter during Thanksgiving.  I was afraid of the heat.  The reality proved that my feel was not unfound.  I was soaked all the time.  I sweated constantly like running water.  I wore the bare minimum of cloth I could wear and had to change clothes constantly.  I washed in cold water and got all soaking wet again after the shower.  The bathroom was like a steam room even though I was washing in cold water.  It was hard for me to endure.  The humidity was unbearable.  Staying at my in-law’s house was unbearable too because we usually turned on the air-conditioner at night while we were sleeping.  It was unbearable for me.  I am so used to cold weather.  Most of the time, we were in shopping center.  However, any time away from the air-conditioner was hard for me.  Finally my body could not take it anymore and I came down with a cold after a week in Taiwan .  So I carried a cold for the remaining of my trip in Taiwan .    

 

I hope that I don’t have to visit Taiwan in the summer again.  However, it seems unlikely since that would be the only time we have not to interrupt our son’s school schedule.  I am glad that I am back to the US and my cold seems to go away.

I am wondering if there is a way to allow the readers to vote for usefulness of each article.  It will be interesting to know what the readers like the most and which articles they find most useful.

 

Just wondering!

I used to be a member of Toastmaster International for some years and have earned several best speaker awards.  Maybe I should re-join the club and link up with my old pals.  Anyway, what prompted me to re-read my old blog post and re-edit it was a speech drafted by a boy.  I thought that maybe you can learn from what I learnt as a member of Toastmaster International

I decided to write a sample cover letter since someone was asking for my advice. 

 

This is a sample cover letter for the position of a teaching assistant for the school age kids.
