Water dump just as in the movies

Lastย Friday eveningย and Saturday morning to afternoon, there was a Discovering Hope Project in myย Church and I attended it. Several congregations of Winnipeg Presbyterian Church attended and the host were two ministers from Ontario and my Pastor.

Saturday afternoon, there was great snow fall and strong wind. There was Snow Storm Warning in the city of Winnipeg. I could not even open my eyes while biking, and the snow hit my face and it hurt much.

About five minutes later I left Church, I was biking on the sidewalk, and a pick-up passed me by, splashed, and dumped the much water and ice on me just as in the movies.

I got totally wet. And the frozen clothes’ touching my skin was painful.

This morning, I found that all my hat, ear-muffs, and gloves were still wet, so I could not use them. And biking with bare-hands in this weather like today is kind of crazy and not possible at all.

So I walked to the bus stop at Portage and Spence – whole the roads and sidewalks were so so so bad. It was like a lake. It splashed on every step I made. Yesterday I had Snow Storm Warning, and today I had Wind Warning – the wind was over 70km per hour. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

After the Church, Gloria gave me a ride home, but I feel tired now. The sky is very nice now. It is like saying that “I’ve never been bad.” ๐Ÿ˜ก

Demonstration and police

Probably last week or the week before, I saw many aboriginal people were demonstrating on Broadway. And I also found several police cars and officers.

But the police officers were not persecuting them. They were blocking the traffic on Broadway and kept the demonstrators safe. It was not familiar to me.

When I was a university student in South Korea before I met Jesus, I also demonstrated quite a lot. And the police officers were so busy to beat us.

The government had special force team to stop the demonstratings, called White Skull Corps – Baek-Gol-Dan. They were very scary and powerful. The police many times shot the powerful tear bombs.

But after the military government went away and President Daejoong Kim disassemble the corps.

Now, the new president MB Lee said that he would revive the White Skull Corps and he would also let the policemen use the taser to the citizens in demonstration!!!

I believe Korea is no more democracy but demoCrazy.

Why the date of Easter is different every year?

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Christianity — Jemyoung Leigh @ 12:21
Tags: , , ,

The Easter has great relation to Passover which celebrates the event happenedย at the last night at Egypt just before the Israelites escaped from there that the angel of death passed over the houses ofย Israelites. Well, as you may guess,ย they did not use the current calendar at those days.ย 

So, to calculate the date of Easter or Passover, we need to use the Hebrew Calendar which is the combination of Solar Calendar and Lunar Calendar.

The current rule of calculating the date of Easter is: the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the day of the vernal equinox.

The wikipediaย says that the cycle of Easter dates repeats after exactly 5,700,000 years, and the most common date of it is April 19th.

Got receipt of my application

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Canada — Jemyoung Leigh @ 13:16
Tags: , , ,

I got a letter from the Provincial government last Tuesday – five weeks after my application.

It says nothing but they received my application and they are going to assess it.

It is quite amazing that they took five weeks to JUST receive the application. I now can understand why most Canadians have much patience than Coreans. ๐Ÿ™‚

But I am happy to know that they are working even though extremely slow.

Daylight Saving Time began

Filed under: Lang:English,Subj:Canada,Subj:Life — Jemyoung Leigh @ 14:07

Daylight Saving Time began today so I can have brighter evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

But in Corea, we do not use this. And in Corea, it is known as Summer Time. Because I did not use this time, it is confusing for me which direction should I turn the clock. And Nancy in my Church told me funny thing about it:

Spring Forward, Fall Backward.

Spring and Fall have two different meanings each. So the sentence above can be interpreted in two different meanings. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, I am happy the spring is coming. The weather forecast said that the highest temperature tomorrow will be One centigrade above zero. If that comes true, tomorrow will be the first day above zero in this winter. ๐Ÿ™‚

In my volunteer work of hospital’s gift shoppe, there is a boy named Alec. And he was in Victoria, BC last week. He said, In Victoria all is green everywhere, and in Winnipeg all is white everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚
