On the Move

Thinking of Prague, the characteristic trams moving around the city come immediately to my mind.

Shot during a winter night, when people were eager to get into the warm tram.

Probably you’d prefer a car if it’s too packed in the public transport…

How about a tour in a classic car in the historical city?

Cycling is my favourite way to enjoy the city when the weather is good 😀

A motorcycle might not be common in Europe but it is part of the everyday life for many in Asia.

p/s check out the wall painting in Penang (Malaysia) here, and it is now also being painted in Kuching (Malaysia)!

And of course we could do it the more “natural” way – on feet!

It doesn’t matter if we’re slow. It matters that we’re always moving forward and we don’t miss any beautiful view we pass by on our way.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Y.A.N.A. ministry to the homeless in Prague

Y.A.N.A (You Are Not Alone) ministry to the homeless community in Prague

“It is mainly a student-led student-run ministry for the homeless and needy people living in the centre of Prague.

The shortcut stands for You Are Not Alone. We are here to distribute food and other resources (e.g. gloves and hats during winter) to those who need it as well as to share the good news of Jesus Christ with them. We also offer prayers on the street. Our vision is to reach out to those in need, show them compassion and tell them about God’s love.”

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

– Matthew 9:36-38

A Lazy Saturday

The chilling wind is gone, flowers start to bloom and trees turn a shade of green, pink, or yellow. Slippers and sneakers instead of boots. People sitting in the park for one whole hour or two. Time to stroll around the city that is.

That’s spring in Prague.

Although it feels as hot as a summer sometimes, and it might be moody ,rainy and chilly for a change just when you start hiding all your jackets.

Nevertheless, the windless and cloudy weather that day didn’t stop me from bringing my camera for a walk.

 

And then I decided to have a cappuccino in a quiet cafe…

 

… and pop in to a Tesco express.

 

Strolling along Vltava River

The outdoor never felt as attractive as it was during the times when I had to stay either in my room or in the library studying. I’ve always thought the national library has a really strategic location, for me personally, because it’s situated right next to the famous Charles’ Bridge, and the Prague castle is clearly visible on the other side of the river! It has always been a very refreshing sight to see this beautiful scenery when I step out of the library after a long day with books. Needless to say, a good walk along the tranquil river was a good way to start a day before I dived into the world of revision!
