    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    The attached characters are "tian shi" which means "angel".
    Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.

    and I don't know about the first pair, but my girlfriend is guessing it means "the highest position in an embassy", something like ambassador.

    I think it's fair to say that ambassador is the best translation. Add a "kwoon" (guan) on the end and you've got an embassy.

    What are these all about?
