Guardian Angels and Dreamers

Has anyone ever experienced having a guardian angel? I will share my experience. 

Recently God sent me a Guardian Angel. His appearance has made me very grateful and happy. He has great qualities. Namely a sense of urgency and detail-oriented(ness). Qualities that I admire because I don’t have them.😔

Guardian angels are helping you in the background. Please note that God has perfect timing–when things are slow and when they are fast. We should respect God’s timing and not push too hard too soon — when it’s not the right time yet.🙏 

These recent events in life has conjured up memories of a beloved cartoon of my adolescence. I was addicted to a certain Japanese animated TV show called ‘Sailor Moon’. The main character was a clumsy school girl named Serena (Usagi meaning bunny in Japanese). She was reincarnated again on earth to save the world. Anyway, long plot short; it was a good training/preview video for me as a young girl. Everyone should check it out–recently it has been remade in computer CG. Super exciting for the hard core fans!

Until next time,




(Just a bit past) Mid-Year Update from allofasuddenpartJew

Wow, it’s already September (here in Hong Kong)! The summer is almost gone, just 2 more months of scorching humidity.

The theme for my first half of 2015 is Personal Growth. We never stop evolving–like everything that’s created in this universe. Change is a constant of life and we should all embrace a change for the better.

My job at a big finance firm has kept me very busy. It is the training ground for the next step in my purpose – changing the world. I can’t go into specific details but it is a dress rehearsal on a smaller scale of ‘the assignment’ for the Higher Being. 

Life is going great😄. I’ve picked up a few new hobbies that is getting regular practice — namely horseback riding, baking and flower arrangement. I find all three incredibly relaxing and gives a powerful connection to nature and surroundings. 

From a spritual perspective, I feel my soul quality is improving. Growing closer and closer to God, his direction and his protection. I can feel and see the change and am very grateful for it. 🙏

Ultimately, we all know where this is leading — the acknowledgement of truth of life and humanity. This is waiting for us and should complete within 5-7 years. Please stay tuned and I thank you for your continued support.


2014: What A Year of New Discoveries and Projects

It’s year end again and time for my annual year in review blog post.

2014 was the Chinese Year of the Horse. What was I up to in my Jewish life? Let’s see….

Major accomplishments include:

  • Graduated from my Master of Arts in Chinese Studies Program
  • Partnered with the Schusterman Family Foundation on a Chinese and Jewish friendship event
  • Realized my future path is not in NYC with Tikvah Fellowship but more banking in Hong Kong
  • Kicking off my “Help Chinese realize the Chinese Dream” project by allofasuddenpartJew

God is preparing me for a future battle with many ups and downs. I see all the signs…don’t you?

2015 will be an exciting year — I already see challenges in my day-to-day job that will prep me for “other things”.

See you in 2015!



The Chinese Dream: Myth or Reality? Why does it matter?

Market positioning is a concept in business defined by the Business Dictionary as “an effort to influence consumer perception of a brand or product relative to perception of competing brands or products. Its objective is to occupy a clear, unique and advantageous position in the consumers’ mind.”

This concept is fluid and moves beyond the business space into politics. Nations, institutions, and NGOs also perform this activity to stay competitive in the world space, China is also in that bucket. For those that have been keeping up with News about China, you probably have heard of Xi Jinping’s ‘Chinese Dream.’ If you do not keep up with China news, the Chinese dream is realizing the great renewal of the Chinese nation in modern history. Similar to the continuous Jewish civilization, the Chinese have 5000 years of pride in their heritage and they want to capitalize that in the modern times. I don’t blame them, I would too.

Now you may ask why does this relate to allofasuddenpartJew? What is the connection?

It overlaps is my answer.

Realizing the Chinese dream, first comes overcoming many internal challenges that I outlined in my last blog post. Getting back into market positioning earlier – this is how I will position myself and efforts. Align with the goals of the Chinese dream to get buy-in and people behind me. That’s the connection. Make sense? Now the government and I share the same mission and goals, to see a China as a better country, setting the way for the world. Here is a quote from Xi Jinping’s Speech about the Chinese Dream.

Our responsibility is to unite and lead people of the entire party and of all ethnic groups around the country while accepting the baton of history and continuing to work for realising the great revival of the Chinese nation in order to let the Chinese nation stand more firmly and powerfully among all nations around the world and make a greater contribution to mankind.”

Xi Jinping and my ideals match perfectly. We will make great partners in the future. You will soon see that it is reality; not a myth.

🙂 until next time.

China: You have a lot of Problems…Let’s focus on the Solutions

Last week I spent a majority of my time researching into “China’s biggest problems”. I put this in quotes because everyone has an opinion on this topic, mostly Western media with a big opinion on what’s going on in the Eastern giant — soon to be world superpower.

A google search came back with hundreds if not thousands of articles, blogs and op-eds on this subject. For example, Martin Feldstein’s WSJ piece on China’s Biggest Problems are Political, Not Economic, he lists corruption, skewed birth rates, and gross inequality as his top three China killers. The Diplomat says it even better in the piece China’s Greatest Challenge: Not America, But Itself. Again, its own social issues and home politics are named as the future deal breakers. I won’t list the other articles that came up, but they all reiterate the same voice and subject. China has major internal issues it must address first, before it can become a world superpower — one that other countries will emulate and follow.

All this reading about challenges has got me thinking…whenever I see a challenge, I also see opportunity. Opportunity to fix the problem and address the solution. Seth Godin, another famous Jewish thought leader, wrote a blog post titled ‘Goals, strategy and tactics for change.’ It provides the perfect framework for me to put my plans into actions, words, that I can then go to others to get buy-in for.

Oh, I also need a team to help me get this done. I can’t do this all alone. We are all created for a reason, to work together and in harmony…Recruiting efforts to begin.

until next time



Twists, Turns, Pauses, and Re-Starts – My Journey Continues

So much has happened in the past few months. The super hot and humid days of Hong Kong has come and gone but not without first sinking deep beneath under my skin. I have been irritated and frustrated that what I thought was supposed to happen, did not pan out. First, I graduated from my Master of Arts in Chinese Studies. That was supposed to happen on schedule. Second, I was rejected by the Tikvah Jewish Fellowship in New York City. That was not in my plans, but I don’t decide the future (only G-d) does. Third, I am back in the corporate working world, surprisingly in financial services again. Will not mention which bank here, as there was quiet a bit of compliance training. Well, life doesn’t always work out in ways you expect and think. I will change my approach and let G-d lead and not assume any event will happen until G-d gives a sign and/or direction.

Finally have come to the realization that my future is in Asia, specifically Hong Kong, for some reasons still unclear to me. Going to New York City to study Jewish history now seems like a ridiculous idea. My immediate next steps are to 1) find a suitable Chinese name for allofasuddenpartJew 2) get Chinese people behind my idea.

Speaking to the first point, Mandarin will be spoken by over 1 billion people, that’s a very large audience. I need to be able to appeal to the Chinese masses. To the second point, I am thinking through ways in which what I am doing will benefit the Chinese people — from business people to government officials. My alter ego will need to solve one of Chinese people’s biggest problems, a problem that even the PRC government cannot solve. That’s where I come in….riding on a beautiful white Arabian horse to save the day. There is so much back end brainstorming, thinking, and planning involved. I want you all to know that I am working — though you may not see it daily — my journey continues….


Situation: Be’Chol Lashon Diverse Jews Birthright Trip

If you are a Jew of diverse origins (AKA: not Ashkenazi), you probably have heard of Be’Chol Lashon, hebrew for “In Every Tongue.” It is an organization dedicated to advocating for the diversity and growth of the Jewish people. Its Mission consists of growing and strengthening the Jewish people through ethnic, cultural, and racial inclusiveness. I have been following them on various social networks since my Jewish discovery in 2011. A few weeks back, I got an e-mail from the organization about a Birthright Israel trip for diverse Jews. My ears perked up, eyes got big, and forgot what I was doing in that moment. My full attention refocused on this Israel trip for diverse young people. The only caveat is the age criteria; 18-26 year olds only, and I discovered my “Jewishness” at 29. Now it is 2014, do the math, and I’m way over the maximum age according to Birthright’s rules.

Undeterred, I sent an e-mail to Lindsey Newman, program coordinator for the trip. I explained by situation, shared this blog and asked some advice about my situation. After all, it is unfair to impose an age limit on someone who discovered Judaism at a later age. Lindsey wrote back and suggested I email Birthright directly; as they do grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis. She also shared Be’Chol Lashon’s blog and asked if I would be interested in contributing a piece. The blog is hosted on MyJewishLearning, a leading transdenominational website of Jewish information and education. I responded with an affirmative yes and Lindsey connected with Rabbi Ruth Abusch-Magder to work out the logistics. Rabbi Ruth is Be’Chol Lashon’s Rabbi-in-Residence and is based in San Francisco, California. I have been following her on Twitter for almost 3 years and reached out when I was researching Judaism sects. My next step is to brainstorm an interesting and engaging topic. 

I sent Birthright a message explaining my unique situation and ask for their advise on the diverse Jews Israel trip. It is rare and difficult to meet “diverse Jews” in Asia. This trip would be a great way to know other Jews in my situation-while seeing and experiencing the beautiful Israel. It’ll also be a great way to expand my knowledge of Jewish people’s diversity, outside of China and Asia. I’m awaiting a response from Birthright and will keep you all posted on my progress.

In other news, I have finished my Masters of Arts in China Studies. I am job hunting in Hong Kong while freelancing for various small businesses. So glad to be free of school! It feels so good to finish writing research papers and essays. I have realized that I have no interest in being a scholar–writing academic papers aren’t really my thing. My core skills are marketing, communications, and consulting. Teaching, writing, and editing round out the top of my interest list.

I will finished here. Will keep you all posted on my progress. I’m sure all will work out alright, G-d willing. Until next time.
