This week has been pure hell but I'm thankful that He brought me through this week, blessing me way beyond my own expectations.
Common test results came back pretty good, scored A's for IHRM & SOM and even for CMA which I thought I would fail miserably, I scored managed to score a B, so I'm really thankful <333 And add math test was manageable which is something I'm really thankful for because those that know me will know how lousy my math is.
Loft was good too :) glad to spend time with my amazing group of friends and I really enjoyed the late nights and retarded moments we shared, it's kinda like a prelude to what the 5 weeks in China will be like and I am really really really excited.
Many 'lost' relationships have been restored this week and I'm glad to have all these people back in my life once again. Really all darlings one and all who keep encouraging me, so thankful for each and every one of you :) Promise to make time to meet up so we can catch up face to face! P/s especially that certain individual that I'm so glad to have in my life once again
And my dearest buffalo, Jared. sighhh I feel so sad to see you like this, makes me feel kinda helpless cause I can't do anything to help you either. All I can do is continue to encourage you, to help you to stay positive through this trying period and to hear you out when you want to rant. I promise you that in time, this too shall pass. So stay strong and you'll make it through. Your giraffe loves you to bits! <333333
Okay, the week ahead is another challenging one but with God's strength I shall triumph!
The world is an ugly place

People around me are disappointing me.
I hate it when people push blame around and just roll their eyes at the issues in front of them, cause all that does is make the situation worse and it does nothing to fix it. Don't make stupid excuses, don't try to run away from the issue, just suck it up and deal with it. That's the only way things can get done.
this too shall pass

It is utterly insane, how there are so many projects and proposals I have to submit over the next two to three weeks and what's even worse is how major all these projects are and I'm so afraid that I am going to screw up any moment and risk messing up the event or my grades.
But though I have my fears, I'm going to believe that God is going to bring me through. Because that is His promise to me, that through all the storms that I go through, He will be my guide and He will never let me go. And I'm going to rely on His supernatural strength to pull through this trying period.
In time, this too shall pass.

And I will survive this because I'm stronger than this.

keeping the memories alive
Wednesday, 20 June 2012
Finally updating this space, realized I should blog more cause it's a way of recording down things that have happened and especially since I have a super terrible memory now, I don't want to not be able to remember all these precious moments.
Ubin cycling with the boys yesterday was super duper funnn. Finally took up the challenge of cycling on the mountain bike route and halfway through we all thought we were going to die because the path was so damn narrow, and I fell of my bike somewhere along the path, laughing when the guys came to help me up as it was so hilarious, got a painful bruise now to constantly remind me. But the view from the top of the mountain bike trail was so beautiful that it was all worth it. And I love how I know pulau ubin so well, after navigating around during JTT. Really enjoyed the trip especially the super awesome moments where we tried to conquer all the killer slopes and were screaming at the top of our lungs as we rode down on them.
And today was a day out with my dearest xiao who I haven't met in forever, really the best time spent with this girl talking about everything under the sun. And we really ate a lot of food, from EWF to canele. Time was well spent and today truly felt like a holiday day.

the key to success is believing that you can
Wednesday, 13 June 2012
This is one of those days where I'm reminded of how blessed I am, God has really been faithful in my life in providing for me and so often these blessings are overlooked because at times they may seem so insignificant but when I take time to really look at the big picture of my life, God has really been good to me.
I'm thankful for the skills He has blessed me with, skills that have allowed me to shine in the different areas of my life, be it in the workplace where my parents are so reliant on me for any technical/IT-related things which I have utterly no clue about but God always helps me to resolve the issues at hand or pick up the skills I need quickly to resolve the problems. Be it in the rangers ministry where I've been blessed with so many annual ROTY awards and my BMA/SMA, all these I never thought I would achieve. Be it in church where I've been placed in such a wonderful cell group and been given the opportunity to serve in the children's ministry, be it davids, timothy or barnabas for the past 6 years, all amazing learning opportunities one and all. Be it in school, even with all my last minute mugging I always manage to do relatively well and my NP scholarship and the flooding in of CCA points now, something that I was so worried about in year 1.
Till this day I can never understand how people can have so much faith in me, how they believe in me and my potential, potential that I'm not even sure I have. Even at the airport a few mere a hours ago, short chit chat sessions with the older commanders really encouraged me, I felt bad about not being able to make the trip because they were all looking forward to having me there to lead the ERs but it was really encouraging to know how much they wanted me to come along and how much of a difference my presence would have made on the trip.
At the end of the day, I can only proclaim that all of this is a result of God's goodness and faithfulness in my life, He has truly been good to me and as much as He has blessed me with, I would also like to be able to bless others. I'm still waiting on God for what's to come and to gain understanding of the plans He has for my life but I know for sure that He has called me to do great things for Him. And though I might be small, God's power certainly knows no limits.

10 June 2012: Best bit of my weekend #photoadayjune
our little trip to ann siang hill and then dinner with the girls at night :))
And on another note,
Don't know why but my love life has been something that has been brought up many times in the past week, from my friends in school having debates about whether I'm attached and if I am, who I am dating, to the friends that I'm texting and even in cell today, where we were talking about relationships.
Gonna write all this down to serve as a reminder to myself,
The ring that I wear on my left index finger, it's my purity ring. It's a ring that I put on everyday just before I leave the house and it is a constant reminder to guard my heart and my purity for the one that the Lord has destined for me. Over the years, there have been so many incidents where I almost got myself into relationships, but I'm thankful that each time when it comes to making the decision, God always serves His timely reminders that the guy isn't the right one for me and I'm only going to go through heartbreak after heartbreak if I commit myself to these relationships. And sometimes it's really hard to walk away, but now whenever I look at the ring on my finger, it's a reminder to me that someday this ring is going to be replaced with my wedding band, and on that very day, I'll be standing at the altar standing face to face for the man that God has saved for me. In God's timing, He will reveal His plans for me and the very person for me and in the meantime while waiting, I'm not going to worry about my relationship, I'm not going to look left and right trying to figure out who the right guy is for me, I'm not going to waste my time chasing after what I think is right for me, but instead I'm going to focus on chasing after God and God alone, because He deserves my heart and He deserves to be placed first in my life. I'm not going to shortchange myself and settle for anything less than God's standards for me, because He knows what I deserve the best, a man that is after His heart. And I too am not going to shortchange my future half by giving away parts of me to guys who don't deserve it, I'm saving myself for my him.
And one day we will meet, in God's time and in God's perfect plan for us.

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love
When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no - one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love
I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong
I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
Know there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love
The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet
I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love, To make you feel my love
one day .x
9 June 2012: your view today #photoadayjune
spent most of the day lazing in the comfort of my bed, with my pillows and thick comforter, using my macbook and catching up on all the shows i've missed.
this is the life.

typing all of this out as I feel my strength wither away, past few days have been complete hell, living on a few hours of sleep and having super screwed up sleep schedules. Worst part has got to be not being able to fall asleep when I want to, just lying in bed staring at the ceiling and regulating my breathing so as to ease myself into dreamland. So glad that I can officially declare CT's over and also a constant reminder to myself to keep working hard, cause it pays off.
Glad we, the awesomes, had a super time at marche celebrating the end of CT's and Jiamin's belated birthday.
to memories and friends that will last a lifetime <3

4 June 2012: Close-up #photoadayjune
close-up of my lovely pencil case and it's contents cause this is the sight i saw the most today, having to constantly search for a colored pen or highlighter to make my experience of studying for CT's more enjoyable.
And I've been doing a lot of thinking about things especially after what Terry shared in cell yesterday and where exactly God's position is in my life and how much is He really in control of.

3 June 2012: On your plate #photoadayjune
What's on my plate and my biggest focus at the time being? My gkids girls. Recent turn of events have caused me to realize the need to step up even more to lead these dear girls because years down the road, I want to be able to look at them and see powerful women of God that are after His heart.
on another note, today has been a really good day.
best part of my day was meeting up with the clique for dinner and a random photoshoot. memories oh memories, totally had an awesome time talking about the crazy shit we used to do in school. How we used to do the "chocoboy - hot" thingy whenever someone said the word, how we used to play no laughing games in class, how we used to play touch rugby and be public nuisances in math class, how we miss the leaning akira of 4/1, and the stupid memories we had in science spec camp. Really awesome being able to look back and laugh at all these wonderful moments in life.
gotta love the clique
This hollow feeling

Stayed up through the night till 7am in the morning trying to perfect it, and then queueing up the stupid photocopying shop for over 40mins trying to get the report printed. IMMA SO HAPPY NOW LIKE A GIANT WEIGHT HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF ME.
Today has been a really good day despite the fact that my body is running on fumes right now.
Norman ORD-ed today :)) Words can't express how proud I am of him because over these past two years, I know how tough this journey has been and I'm just so proud of how much he has grown through this. Proud of you my dearest!
My little obsession for this month :)) #photoadayjune
