Haba Snow Mountain, Lijiang, Shangrila, Yunnan, China

This is a youtube video fro Dr Kevin Soh of Singapore. A beautiful recording of his trip to Haba Snow Mountain, Shangrila, Yunnan, China.

Watching it, is just like travel with them to Haba Snow Mountain during Christmas day.

Winter in Yunnan, China

Just come back from Yunnan, China. An early winter at Shangrila, it snow the first day we arrived. Beautiful journey crossing the Yunnan and Guangxi Province, but missed the Asian Games in Guangzhou, Guangdung Province. Just happen to see the video at youtube. Beautiful winter isn't it?

Hope you enjoy it....

Merry Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas to all Christian friends round the world

Peace be with you, wherever you are.

Hayyo Ya Mhuyumne, or Come All Ye Faithful, sung in Chaldean Neo-Aramaic. A traditional Christmas hymn. Aramaic is an ancient language spoken during Jesus's time, hearing song in Aramaic in Christmas day will be more meaningful to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. Aramaic was the language spoken by Jesus Christ. In several countries in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria, Armenia) the Catholic faith is practiced by, amongst others, the Chaldean Church and the language they use is Aramaic.

Christmas day is the day to remember the birth of Jesus Christ, is not like an ordinary birthday, it is not Santa Claus day, it is not Christmas tree, it is not Christmas Song, it is not Christmas Turkey dinner, it is not Christmas drama, it is not Christmas gifts; it is just a day to remember Jesus Christ. He is the focus, every second, every hour and the day of Christmas. Many celebrate Christmas,it is a public holiday, but fall short of the knowing what is the meaning of the day. This year, my Christmas is merely walking back to the time when Jesus said in Aramaic language....the time Jesus walk and talk to many...and many come to know you know HIM?....

The Lord's Prayer in Aramaic

The language of Aramaic still remain....

Have a merry Christmas and blessing year for 2011.
