crazy singing experience.
daily inspirational psalms to start off my day (: gives me strength to just pull through everything, got to say i've never felt any better before ( in terms of this year. ) so far, today has got to be the best day of my life, yes eyes were puffy and i didn't really get the best sleep that i could have but somehow it just felt great :D think my mondays are suppossedly the best days among the other weekdays because lessons are only 4 hours long and i get to go home at 1.40pm instead of 6pm every other weekday,
homework's piling up againnn and so are the tests this week, crazyyness. looking forward to thursday where i can finally take a breather for a bit before heading down to ja with the other rangers on friday, finally a camp with allison :D and i finally got my cbl toga dress which my korkor hid from me again, and i'm so excited about baby jeanelle's birthday that's coming up in fed.
because these memories will live forever

forgot to mention this yesterday, but i'm really really glad to be here in bethel outpost 1 with the rest of the rangers. serving alongside with all of you to make the enrollment service a success was really wonderful time spent, from practicing the skit having to wear the green SA recyclable bag to making sure the ER's item was going well and even the moments when it felt so awkward to be standing up there on stage singing with duet with allison.
to the band people (:
hahas, i don't know how we sound, 'cause shawn says we sound different on stage and offstage, but i think we did real awesome and worked super well together :D
to the ER's performance people (:
okay, we pulled it off :D think you guys had a lot of fun and i'm glad to know the rest of the outpost enjoyed it, just wanna thank you guys for making unclechong's vision possible ('cause he made me do it. ) hehe, even got a highfive from him
it's really moments like this that make me forget about the bethel/fcbc issue,
and i'm so so proud of all of you :D love this ER family of mine.
certain bonds that can't be broken
clinging to the cross i'll follow you.

i'm tired from two consecutive long days, been busy preparing for enrollment service 2010, practicing with the entire worship crew and preparing the special presentation by the ER's, i'm so glad we managed to pull everything off, think this enrollment will be a memorable one, 'cause it's our final one before the church building gets demolished and rebuilt.
ROTY was really super unexpected this year, i think i had a blur/shock/'are you sure you never write the wrong name' look on my face when i went forward, hahas,
okay, need to prepare my lifestory for cellies, chuanlian better bring me tissue papers in case i cry
your beauty seems so far away

tgto (thank god thursday's over (: )
hate thursdays, become the lesson schedule's crazy, can't believe the school actually put us through 9hours of lessons today. seems alright last year though, guess pe as first period really affects the mood for the whole day. running 2km outside school today was terrible, been a long since we ran that much at one go w/o slacking off, darn can still feel the lactic acid surging in my legs.
and i like having wireless access in school, makes it so much more convenient to do things :D
sometimes, i think i read between the lines too much.
and i think my brother pranked me, he told my mum that white vinegar cures ezema so she's spamming my neck area with it :(
and don't ever send msgs that just say 'help' and nothing else, it's really scary. hahas. ( you know who you are. )
all you words weight heavily
Wednesday, 20 January 2010
heh. finally time to blog properly,
school's been really hectic this week, with the school day ending at 6+ and homework piling up, and the weekend before didn't even seem like one, guess i'm not used to spending a saturday in school instead of bethel with the other rangers.
GOTTA MAKE IT OFFICIAL.
WE, PEOPLE SITTING IN MY AREA (SHARMINI, WAISIONG, JIAQIN, KUANTING AND ABDUL), ARE THE LOUDEST AND NOISIEST BUNCH IN THE WHOLE OF 4/1
hahas, so far, biology has been the highlight of the week. can still remember the stupid jokes and kuanting's face when he laughed at it. (EPIC-NESS.) got retards sitting behind me trying to imitate me when i talk bimbo.
(: work hard work hard!!
expected l1r5 for 4/1'10's 7.5 :( so can't afford to disappoint
p/s mrC's a facebook stalker,

everything happens for a reason, be it good or bad.
and God has a different plan for everyone in this life of ours,
heh, many things happened yesterday, but i'm glad it's all over.
okay promised myself that i'll study hard from this week onwards, less messing around and more mugging. anyways, zenya pomegranate green tea ftw (:
HAPPY BIRHTDAY TWO THIRD :D
Saturday, 16 January 2010
hehe, happy birthday two-third (:
can't belive time flies so fast and you're 18 this year, hahas can still remember the times we spent growing up together from when we were small little kiddos running around in palm grove to doing our BMA together in 2006 and finally part of a a family now in the ER's.
there's so many things that i need to thank you for.
firstly, for being such an inspiration to me when i started of with my BMA, guess you never knew this but at that period of time both you and joshua were like my role models to follow, and it really meant a lot to know that when no one believed that i could do it, you did.
secondly, for being such a blessing in my life. (: having you as one of my three brothers is really awesome, i rememer half of our msn convos ending up with, 'sleep early (: ' i'm glad that in 2009 through all the ups and downs i had a brother there to cover me spritually and to listen to all my problems and giving my lame solutions, hahas.
thridly, for being such a friend. you know, you're the kind of person who never fails to lend a helping hand at any point in time, and it's great to know that i can entrust things to you because i have the confidence that you will do it well :D
so as you move into your final year in the ER's as well as you A level year, i pray that God will continue to do a work in your life so that you will shine for him for all of mankind to see :D i'll always be a text msg away alright.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY (:

and the song keeps ringing in my head.
sleeping hours have been terrible lately, starting to wake up in the middle of the night before finally going back to sleep after about 1/2 an hour or so, sigh, it's hard to even get a good nights rest.
anyways, everyone got a shocker when the math/add math timetable shows that we have math tests on saturdays, thank god it's a self test, so my saturday's still free for rangers :D
hehe, in love with the juicycouture/billabong watches (: shall buy one soon along with my LA candy by lc book and new wallet 'cause mine's falling apart already.
anyone wants to sponser anything (:
'cause i'm suppossed to be saving money, wanna reach my goal of $1000 more into my bank acc this year (:

this is bad,
still not getting the right motivation to study, can't bring myself to the point where i'm willing to sacrifice everything else to just study moreeee. hehe, gotta get rid of this crazy mindset of mine soon. 'cause O's will be here soon
okay printer's giving me a crappy time, i need a new one even if i have to pay for it myself. and i swear SSEF is seriously irritating me a lot, the paperwork that has to be done for this competition is crazy and i'm starting to think that it's not worth all this trouble.
okay gotta study SS for the test tmr,
and i think i should stick to my 4 hours of sleep because at least when i wake up i'm able to last all th way till 2am, instead of feeling tired like i am now :(
sad, caffeine does not work on me like it should.

can't believe that it's just the second day of the second week of school, i know it sounds crazy but i'm actually looking forward to the coming of the next holidays, then we'll be at JSC :D whoo hoos, can't wait for the last two camps of JLTA. (:
day was long today,and from now on i think i'll end up dreading tuesdays because i'll have the most boring lesson schedules in the entire week and double english period is a really bad idea.
and it's insane how i can wake up after 5 hours of sleep and feel like i didn't manage to rest at all.
like a papercut on my heart
Monday, 11 January 2010
hahas, tired :(
lessons were relatively short today but it still felt like the day was crazily long, maybe because i was dreading th results, but in any case, watching the seniors get their results today was super tense and i can't believe that it'll be our turn next year.
and cici can't believe that i've grown taller than the other girls that i'm almost her height already, hahas,
your lips, they lie.
I can't believe, this is here happening
Our situation isn't right
Get real, who you playing with
I never thought you'd be like this
You were supposed to be there by my side
When you say that you want me
I just don't believe it
You're always ready to give up and never turn around
But what if I need you baby
Would you even try to save me
Or would you find some lame excuse to never be true
What if I said I loved you
Would you be the one to run to
Or would you watch me walk away without a fight
I'm so sick of worrying that you're gonna quit over anything
I can trip and you let go like that
And everything that we ever were
It seems to fade, but not the hurt
'Cause you don't know the good things from the bad
When I say that I want you
You know that I mean it
And in my hour of weakness
There's still time to try
pain in the offering

i like today (:
met waisiong and kevin at amk and bused down to np for open house, hahas, currently weighing the options of going to lsct or ba and my jc options which kevin keeps saying i'll never make it in, but i promise to prove him wrong, hahas (: met norman at the np bus stop and took a bus down to bethel for rr, hahas, enrollment ceremony's coming up soon and i can't believe what i'm going to be doing for it this year, so much more involment as compared to previous years, whooos exciting.
campfire day, i'm proud of myself for being able to rush out a video in 3 hours out of nothingness. hahas, though those efforts were wasted, unless zheshuo really keeps his promise and watches it a thousand times, it was still worth it, 'cause it officially puts an end to my job as ITperson in council :D
and orientation's finally over, amen.
walking on our tippytoes

one form of irony.
" the english enrichment was enlightening"
(even though the lecturer taught them things they already knew.)
tsk. my exact sentiments
today's been such an insane day, pe was crazy, maybe a little too intense for the first session, but i'm amazed with how i my stamina's still there after not exercising during the hols. pushups and crunches and leg raises build up muscles which i don't want. :(
hahas and my msn hasn't been this busy in a while, webcamming with jerald over room tours, stupid wireless connection from my bedroom and speaking to ivan reminds me of something i haven't thought about in a long time.
i don't know what misconceptions some individuals have about me in school, but honestly i think it's stupid for someone who doesn't know me to judge me and even spread some rumours to others. hahas it's plain childish, but in any case, i really don't care because i know who my true friends are now, 'cause they'll stand up and speak up for me (: and that's all i need, i don't need to be friends with posers like you all.

42 chinese reflections to go.

wanting what we can't have.
Monday, 4 January 2010

looking back in a mirror

HAPPY 2010 (:
can't believe how time flies so unbelievably fast and it's been a year ago since i wrote a post like this, 2009 2009 been such a crazy year of change with all the ups and downs on the emotional roller coaster along with many lessons of discovering myself for who i really am.
2009 started off with a whole new beginning in the rangers ministry as i moved up from the adventure rangers to the expedition rangers, and i thank God for such a smooth transition and for this ER family of mine because through them, i've been inspired and i feel really blessed to be able to just spend time with such individuals throughout the year and serve alongside with them in all that we do. indeed, i'm really thankful for certain friendships that have been strengthened or built this year like those i share with allison, conrad, norman, shawn, leon, joshua and gabriel and for the godly leaders he has placed above me to ensure that my walk with the Lord is right.
i thank God for my mentor dilys and all that she has done for me throughout the entire year, i know the process of mentoring me has not been an easy one and i know how much heartbreak i have put her through, but through it all she never gave up on me and continued to be there for me. i thank God for breaking that i built around myself with her and allowing me to learn how to trust in her because she has really been a blessing in my life through all her mentoring sessions with me, through all her encouragements and prayers and through her love, care and concern.
i thank God for the whole new change he has brought about in my cell or in my church for that matter, from the merging to the seperating and to finally where we are now. the first six months spent in the lowlies cell group under shirley, eugin, alan, daniel and adeline and in the JRW tribe under pastor jeff, rachel and william have been great, but now with my new cell under adeline and liangming and in the DE tribe under pastor danny and evelynn, i'm truly excited to see how M&M works out in 2010 for all of us and i'm happy that i'm in this tribe because everyone's just so crazy for God. i'm really glad to know that this year has brought me closer to so many people in my cell/tribe such as deborah, yingxin, jingyi, sarah, hannah, gloria, the older girls in my cell and people in basia/aaron's cell.
serving in gkids for 4 years, i'm thankful that in 2009 i still am able to continue serving them despite the reshuffling in the way things are carried out in FCBC and the services and i'm really glad to just see these young kids grow and learn so much more about who Jesus really is in their lives.
even though being in 3/1 in 2009 has been tough i thank God for my clique there (: crazy friends like jiaqin megaloser, xiang(square) cave man tianning and tankuanting have brought a whole new vibrancy to the meaning of friendship, old friends like momo petbear, shingobingo and waisiong have continued to stay strong and i'm glad that relationships with jaslynQ have been patched up and rebuilt and i've gained new friends like jingwenahbor in council :D
finally i would like to thank god for my family, even my super irritating korkor, i hardly say this but i'm really fortunate, to be able to live in such a house, to be able to get so much allowance, to be able to travel to newyork, malaysia for CGT and philippines this year, to be able to attend rangers, to be able to serve the children ministry, to be able to even know God, that's all something i owe to my family.
challenge to myself will be to SHINE,
not to just be a reflective star to shine based on comments or what others say, but to shine from within, running on what God has to offer.
