weekend reflection: going dry for a good cause

My sister Dr. Margaret Chan went for a conference in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. " This afternoon, we skipped the afternoon session and went to the Muslim area. The place is huge. We went because the Malay students wanted to go so I followed. Well, it was really an eye opener. Tomorrow we are going to the grassland, the home of the Mongolians for a day. "

Margaret bought this interesting bottle of horse milk wine. She said most tourists bought the wine not to drink but for the bottle. It has a picture of Genghis Khan. ( can you see the reflection on the table?)

My very beautiful, talented niece, Katie is doing something fantastic. She is going dry this July 2012! All for a great cause! On the left is Katie, a solictor for the Chan Lawyers, and her youngest sister Emily. Some of you will remember Emily who sang the "Mum's the best song."

The website anyone can go to to make donations or leave messages: Katie just started today, so we hasn't received any donations yet. But what a great job , Katie, You got my Ka Pai and Paki Paki and also prayers that the bottle spirit will not tempt you too much.

I do a lot of fundraising for cancer with Matt (my fiancé)’s mother, Leeann. Matt’s father had cancer and a friend of mine who was only 25 years old passed away from cancer a few months ago. For instance, the last fundraiser we had, we walked to raise donations. Leeann walked from midnight until 5:30am to raise money! She also holds a lot of other events to raise money J
