How to interpret your Profile Score:

Your highest score indicates your primary love language. Your second highest score indicates your secondary love
language. If two scores are identical, you are bilingual (you have two primary love languages). If the scores of your
primary and your secondary language are close (for example, 10 & 9 respectfully), it indicates both are important to
you. Whatever a significant other does to express love in either of these languages will get emotional points with you.
The highest possible score for any language is 12.

Having a clear picture of your primary & secondary love languages will explain much of your past behavior Think back
over the past and ask yourself "What have I most often requested from significant others?" Chances are your answer
will lie within the scope of your primary & secondary love languages. You have been requesting that which would meet
your deepest need for emotional love.

Your Love Number is


You are a peaceful person, and you tend to have calm, stable relationships.
Connecting deeply is another skill of yours, and you tend to know lovers well.
Trusting and laid back, you are an easy person to love.
Love can be a little blinding for you, so open your eyes a little more!

Dance lesson.
Last night’s salsas lesson was so overwhelming. Lots of people, enormous dance floor, 3 floors total, and a bar, It was tough to learn those foot steps; of course, following the beats isn’t that easy either. We got to learn the basic foot work of salsas, and few other techniques such as spinning and leading. It was fun for me because I was with the people that I know, and they were trying out with me; and we had so much fun practiced and helped each other out. In each song, guys had switch to a different partner, in order to get used to a different partner, as well as finding out who wasn’t doing correctly.
That night, we took the beginner and intermediate salsas lesson. It was an hour lesson. I was amazed by those pros who can throw, spin, toss and whatever they can to the partner without missed a beat; which made the representation of the couple looks marvelous, and their styles and forms were so accurate along the rhythm. Me, I was having a hard time leading my partner. :P Not to mention, I was focusing so hard on my foot instead of following the rhythm. I also learned 2 steps and swing, thanks to Donna’s help.  We stayed for 4 hours, and got to meet so many mutual friends.
In the end, I was managed to salsas, 2 steps, and swing danced few of the songs without making a mistake. hm.. I don’t mind going back there again just trying to master salsas. 

It’s Friday!! After 3 days of sunshines in the Bay Area, I can’t believe its Friday. It has been a good week so far. I am going to salsa beginner’s dancing lesson tonight with bunch of friends. It’s going to be a new experience for me, and fun actually. I know few people that are going, so I won’t be alone standing and not sure what to do next. :P Ironically, I am starting like to go out now after I stopped playing Final Fantasy online game. It’s a corrupted game, I should say. See my brother playing day and night during his spring break, and week night after he comes back from school, I felt sorry for him. I told him to stop and go out, but he insisted that he wants to max out his 2nd character, to level 75. Then I asked him again, so what are you going to do after you max out, then he was silence for a bit, then respond with blur informative answer, that he finally can kill 4 Gods in the heaven, and receive great prizes with his online friends. Ok, then I asked him again, by killing God, what can you get out of in life? He said it’s fun, and it’s challenging, because it needs teamwork and skills to kill a God, and it normally takes an hr to kill God, he and his friends are trying to break a record by kill God within 40 mins. I was like, ok, teamwork, fine, but what skill, all you do is pushing buttons, run around, and that is about it. After all that lectures I was giving him, he gave up and doesn’t know how to answer anymore. Hm…

I felt i was his parents for some reason. I wondered if I will be like this when my kids are like that too, playing games day and night.

I used to play a lot on FF online, maybe 5 hrs a day, and it was my first online game actually. I was hook for hrs, and weeks, until something happened that drastically changed my life. Now I know why never wanted to play online games while I was in school or out of school. You will get hooked on it. It’s like a drug that you can’t quit until something happened in your life. Since i know what it had done on me in the past, I hope i can tell my brother the same, and hopefully he doesn't have to deal with what had happened to me before.

Day 6
Luke 23:44-56 Death and Burial of Jesus

The death of Jesus set in motion several physical events that could be observed by all. Darkness covered the land for three hours. The Gospel of Mathew also mentioned an earthquake. The curtain in the Temple that separated the Holy of Holies from the inner court was torn in two, from top to bottom. These events in the natural world mirrored spiritual cataclysm that resulted in opening the way for sinful human beings to approach a holy God. Even the pagan centurion can see something divine and pure is in Jesus. Through the kindness of Joseph of Arimathea, Jesus is buried in a borrowed tomb-fulfilling yet another Old Testament prophecy.

Day 7
Luke 24:1-35 The Resurrection

No one is prepared for what has happened: the tomb is empty! The central event-the most amazing miracle-in all of human history is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The angels remind the women that this very thing had been foretold. When they tell the other disciples what they’ve seen, they are met with skepticism. Who can blame them? But when the disciples investigate, the empty bomb confounds them. Later that day, two others meet the resurrected Jesus, but they are prevented from recognizing him. He explains how the Scripture have foretold a Messiah who was first rejected before he enters glory. As they share the evening meal, they realize who it is who has been with them, but Jesus suddenly disappears. They’re left to share their story with the others. And the message is still spreading: Jesus is Alive!

Day 5

Luke 23:26-43 The Crucifixion

The details about Jesus’ crucifixion contain many seemingly insignificant details: for example that he was crucified with criminals, or that they divided up his clothes, casting lots to see who would win this robe. But these very trivial events were foretold centuries earlier, and confirm Jesus at the Old Testament Messiah (and the Bible’s trustworthiness; compare Psalm 22:16-18 and Isaiah 53:4-12). Crucifixion is excruciating that is where the word comes from literally, from (ex) the cross (cruc). Yet Jesus extends grace to repentant many dying with him, promising forgiveness and life with him after death. He even forgives those who are murdering him. Jesus exudes grace even up to the point of death, because he is the God of grace incarnate.

Day 3
Luke 22:54-71 Jesus Arrested, Moked and Tried

As Jesus is led off to face trial, Peter follows at a distance. But more than mere physical space separates them. Peter puts a spiritual distance between him and Jesus by denying him. At that moment, Jesus’ eyes meet his. Realizing what he’s done, Peter stumbles outside sobbing. As the trial continues, Jesus’ captives mock his supernatural claims, and in the wee hours of the morning, the Council hears for themselves Jesus’ claim to divinity. Plainly affirming he is the Son of God and the Son of Man (a messianic title from Daniel 7:13-14), Jesus is condemned for blasphemy.

Day 4
Luke 23:1-25 Jesus Trials before Pilate and Herod

Having done nothing truly worthy of death, Jesus is acquitted after his initial questioning by Pilate. Not satisfied, the religious leaders press Pilate to find Jesus guilty of undermining Roman authority. The crowd relentlessly presses on Pilate to find Jesus guilty and clamors for the release of Barabbas. Pilate, known in history for his injustice and brutality, acquiesces to their hostile demands and hands Jesus over to be crucified.

Day 2

Luke 22:39-53 Mount of Olives Prayer; Jesus Arrested

Jesus knew that he would require extraordinary strength to get through the ordeal of crucifixion. So he returned to a place he’d been many times to pray: the Garden of Gethesemene on the Mount of Olives. There, he invited his closest friends to pray with him. He warned them of temptation soon to come, and urged them to stay on the alert. They were all about to fight to do so. When the soldiers arrived to arrest Jesus, the disciples instead offered a clumsy attempt at self-defense. They’d completely missed the point of Jesus’ instructions earlier (verses 36-38): although Jesus’ enemies were about to overrun him, human might was Jesus’ battle, and theirs, was spiritual-as is ultimately ours (Ephesians 6:12-18).

Luke 22:1-38 Judas Agrees to betray Jesus; The Last Supper

People often wonder if Jesus’ disciples were a disappointment to him. They didn’t seem to understand that this Passover would be his last, though Jesus knew it would be. Jusas would soon betray him – and Jesus knew that too. Peter would soon deny him – again, Jesus knew in advanced. On top of that, the dinner conversation revolved around which of them would be greatest – even as Jesus was preparing his ultimate act of humility, and humiliation. Amazingly, he still “eagerly desired” to be with them. He prayed for them. He prepared them to recover from their mistakes. Despite all their rough edges, unfinished character and out-and-out sinful activity, he cared deeply for them, longing to enjoy his final meal with them.
