Grace Reading in Formal Hall

I received this note in my pigeon hole the other day. For 30 seconds I was like ? ... I thought I had committed a crime by reading during formal halls. Doesn't make sense till *smacks forehead*, I realized what it meant. Apparently I am in the rota to read Grace for one of the College formals during this term. Must be joking rite... Grace speaking Latin when her French can't even make it. -_-'''

Just for your info, here is the College Grace:

Benedic, Domine, nobis et donis Tuis,
quae de Tua largitate summus sumpturi,
et concede ut iis muneribus Tuis
ad laudem Tuam utamur
gratusque animis fruamur,
per Jesum Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

which translates to:

Bless us, O Lord, and all your gifts,
which of your goodness we are about to enjoy;
and grant that we may use these your gifts
to your glory
and enjoy them with thankful hearts,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Master even offered to coach anyone who needed help. Mine is on 23rd Feb, sounds challenging but think I will opt out of it LOL. The thought of me speaking Latin... haha :P
ANYWAYS, its near CNY already! Yippee, time to rush the work and party during the weekend!
Gong Xi Fa Cai and Gong Hey Fatt Choy everybody!
