30-06-07 My Blog is rated SG-17!!!

AAAaAaaaaAPUUUUUUUUU!!!!! I went to Aunty Vivien cum i-Youth's blog and I came across this entry "How Is Your Blog Rated?" and... what the...??? My blog is restricted to those below 17 because it has... 6 specific words? And since when did 'pain' become a bad word? HAHAHaaahaha!! Gek dao ah!

Here it is:

"Hahahaha...following Kristine's example, i went a little further and took the liberty to rate the following blogs and publish their ratings as of 25th June 2007.

JT's blog
Online Dating
This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
* crap (3x)
* death (2x)
* pain (1x)"

I guess I gotta start a security feature to stop those under 17 from entering my blog, eh? hahah... No more for you, Alyssa, Kah Ying and those of you underage kids who wanna enter...

Suddenly it sounds as if my blog is a porn site or sth... Don't penalize me for using that 'p' word, aV!!

30-06-07 Which Type of Person Are You?

There're a few ways ppl get along in life. Some get along doing everything that can be done to fix a situation; some just sit around doing their own stuff, ignoring what others do or what help they can render; some sleep(Zzz...) while others do their stuff, pretending they don't know that others are doing something for them and; some others just complain that others don't do their job properly.

Which one are you?

The Bible doesn't only tell us to "be the salt and light of the earth", to do what we can for the better of this world. The Bible also asks us to "do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe".

Think about it... If you're cleaning the toilets at home and you're frumbling and grumbling away... Do you think others will be going like, "Wow, what a good boy/girl he/she is... Doing chores without being told despite complaining..."?

I must say that this is NO easy task. I imagine how my parents used to be sweeping the floor or mopping the floor or doing the dishes or clearing the table or gardening or... all those stuff and I'd be working out my 'potato couch' skills. Now, AFTER leaving the comfort of home and I start to HAVE to be doing stuff by myself, I feel what they must have felt, suffering there doing all that hard stuff while others who are MORE than able to help out just laze around and STILL can complain about stuff. For those of you still home, I hope you start doing what I rarely did... Help out at home. As for those who aren't... I urge you to not be so bitter about doing something for others or just something you weren't supposed to do. No credit here on earth means God decided to save it for the long run... in HEAVEN! It even earns you interest, from just a temporary pleasurable word of praise from friends to sheer pleasure... For eternity!

28-06-07 Gathering of Thoughts

Mid-years are over! I am SOOooOOooo relieved! ESPECIALLY not having to listen to ppl boasting how much they didn't study and planned to fail and all that!(For a while at least...) So, as celebration... I shall enter all the thoughts that I gathered over quite a while and didn't manage to blog about...

Now that I AM already 18 and a full-fledged adult already, I suddenly realize that next year I'm gonna turn 19, then the NEXT year, 20! WOW! I'm gonna be in my 20s in less than 700 days! My MY! I have to say... the difference between the following two years will REALLY be huge. I mean, even though it's just 1 year apart, being 19 and 20 is VERY different! The gap between 19 and 20 years old is actually MORE than 1 year, if you get what I mean... Wow... I wonder what silly stuff(s) I'll do when I reach 20...

" 'Men is Too Selfish To Be Generous.' Prove this wrong". This was one of the 'motto's that VJ used to encourage students to take part in this charity drive earlier on. I came to realize quite a while ago that giving is actually a form of 'self-praise'. Okay... My explanation... When you give someone something, they either like it or hate it. Either way, they'd usually be polite and tell you, "I LOVE this colour!" or sth like "OMgoodness! I can't believe you bought/made me this!" OR... They'd just be polite and say a nice "Thank you so much!". Either way, you still get words of praise or gratitude and that sweet smile from them as they tilt their head slightly to the left. By giving, you actually are "forcing" others to praise you back. That in itself brings great happiness and brightens up your day, no?

Another thing I got to realize is this... Listening to ppl ain't a very easy thing to do. Or maybe.. It's just NOT a 'guy thing'. Heheh... I'm not too sure. 1 thing I CAN be sure about is that it's hard for ME...! I mean, when ppl tell me stuff, I have a tendency to interrupt with a word here and there. So... Here I salute those who were attentive and listened in the past: Kar Wei(especially), Chung, Aaron Wong IH, CP, Janice Wee, Leo, Esther Wong Xiao... sth and uh... the others who I will add to this list as soon as my memory reboots.

Earlier on, I attended this thing in church for CG leaders cos my CG leader asked me to join him. It was abt mentoring. The speaker, Rev Edmund de Souza mentioned how we can mentor and how we can BE mentored. He mentioned that being a mentor means you shouldn't make yourself seem too clever or too superior. He said that a mentor should be honest and share his own problems too so as not to give one's mentee the impression that one is perfect. I agree totally with what he says. I also realize that (forgive me for my pride in saying this for those who don't think so) some ppl get this impression of me as being this perfect kid from this perfect family. I just wanna make it clear to all of you out there that it is ABSOLUTELY not true. I jsut seem to have such a full life bcos I have Jesus as my personal Saviour and my life just brightens up after I took Him seriously. Even so, I STILL have MANY problems that I guess I don't let many ppl know. I sin. A LOT! yea...

After being injured or getting muscle aches/pains and all that... I've come to discover this '3-day Rule' for most injuries and pain. The 1st day AFTER you exercise too hard/get the injury, it's gonna hurt quite a lot. The following day, it's gonna be a KILLER! SO MUCH more painful than the 1st day. The day AFTER that, it's gonna return to the 1st day's condition or maybe even alleviate even MORE! Days following the 3rd day will possibly see a complete disappearing of the pain or just slight feelings of it. Get hurt enough times and I'm sure you'll discover this too! Who needs biology? Hahah... I'm just kidding.

"We don't stop playing when we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing." Well said, don't you agree? I read this off a McD leaflet encouraging families to join this series of fun and activities organized by McD. I guess it doing well to counter the unhealthy food it's feeding us, eh? Anyway, I am absolutely supportive of this quote. So next time if you see me trying to make a fool of myself or just thoroughly enjoying myself doing childish stuff or just playing around, don't tell me to "Grow up!" or you'd have just confirmed that you're officially old.

And to end things off, I have one thing to say... Thank GOD for round tables! Talking doesn't become such a hassle anymore!

25-06-07 We're not THAT different after all...

I suggest those of you who haven't seen this video on YouTube to see it. Look under "Kawanku", the 1 with just words and the person rapping in the background.

After my first 2 subjects for mid-year today... I have sth to say.... "SIEEEEEEENNNN AH!!!!"

It's not because of the exams, really! It's the PPL! I'm sure those of you in or from Chung Hua would know... I go to school, the first person I see starts off a conversation like the following:

"How's your studies?"
"Ermmm... Okla. Did what I could."
"Really? So you're all ready for the exams le ah? Confident le ah?"
"Er... Well..."
"Good la you! I didn't even manage to touch my book ah! Was playing for the whole holidays ah! Last night also couldn't help but play games ah! How? Getting ready to fail nia ah! Die sia..."
"Oh... Ok... Good luck failing then!"

... Well, the last line doesn't usually go off like that but, I sure wish I could say that sometimes... I mean... BS la! Prepared to fail le and still so proud abt it? As if la...! Then later the paper comes back and you get 80++ and THEN you start with the routine again...

"EH! I didn't study also get 80++! Heng sia...! Eh, how'd you do ah?"
"70++ lo..."
"What? Oh, only lose to me by a bit nia la."
"Yea, sure. I guess I'm really stupid to lose to someone who didn't even study and still beat me, yeah?"

Then, there're those who do something similar after the exams...

"Wah, how sia...? Die lo this time. Dunno what I was doing for the compo eh...! Only crapped around nia ah. Fail lo this time..."
"Crapped? But i saw you write two full pages wat..."
"Yeala! Crapped until two pages, no point one eh..."

... As if... Even ME the king of crap(literally) can't even crap for 1.5 pages and you can crap THAT much?

I'm sick of all this 'kiasu' type of attitude la! What's in it for you if you try to make me feel confident?! You'll get an extra 0.1 mark for every person you make feel more confident is it?

23-06-07 It's Not Easy To Be Nice...

... In other words, it's easy to be NOT nice. I think this will be the first in a series of future entries.

For this entry, I got the inspiration while I was on the bus just now. I realized how easy it is to annoy the person next to you or even the those on the whole bus. Here's a list of what you wanna do have ppl turn their heads and scowl at you on the bus.(personally not recommended)

1. Clear your throat and cough really, REALLY loud.*Ahhh-HEEKKKKKkgGGghhhHHH*
2. Keep fidgeting in your seat.
3. Push your knee(s) against the seat in front.(What to do? Legs too long, seat too cramped what, right?)
4. Board a bus right after some vigorous exercise and when you're sweating like a... sweaty person you are(I dunno how ppl can use animals as a comparison here cos... I dunno which animal on earth actually sweats a lot on its body after running or sth) and wheezing like a heart-attack patient. Then, sit really, REALLY close to this young lady/man who obviously is all dressed up for some really nice function.
5. When boarding the bus, put your heavy groceries down real slowly(got eggs inside, right?), then reach for your really heavy backpack and start digging for your purse/wallet. After finally finding it, start digging in your purse/wallet among your many, MANY coins for the exact change, struggling as there are mostly 1 cent(if in M'sia) and 5 cent coins.(Don't wanna top up, more expensive what, right?)
6. Due to all the seats taken, you stand with several others. Standing with them, you opt NOT to place your items on the floor as they're just so precious and fragile. Then, because of the DRIVER'S reckless driving, you keep jerking back and forth and knocking into the others standing, occasionally bumping your backside at the old seated lady right beside where you're standing.
7. In a similar situation as in 6, except that you did not buy or bring anything. So, you're able to stand properly. Then, with your back facing a mother and child, you accidentally let out a audible fart. (Hmmm... Sounds like a Toilock Man mischief...)
8. Like a combined situation of 4 and 7, except this time the bus is really PACKED! Even standing space is no more available. Having nothing to grasp except for the iron bar above which the shorter girls standing beside you can't reach, you decide to just grab it. Then, your amazing power emanating from your underarms cause the girls to squeeze closer together, using their perfume's fragrance as life support.
9. Keep pressing the "STOP" button after every stop even though you're not getting off soon.
10. Keep pressing the "STOP" button even after the "BUS STOPPING" sign is up.
11. Drink something(which is illegal on buses in Singapore) and as the bus turns or jerks, you spill the liquid on the ppl beside AND in front of you.
12. Blast your MP3-playing mobile phone to the maximum.(Works best when you have a low-quality MP3-blasting mobile phone. e.g. Nokia?)
13. (For girls) Knowing that you have really smooth and long hair, you wish to show it off. So, you shake your head around every 10 minutes, your hair tickling the poor old man beside you who is trying to have a nap.
14. Take off your shoes after a long walk in the damp forest at MacRitchie Reservoir/Lambir Waterfalls or from mountain-climbing at Canada Hill.
15. Talk really loud over the mobile phone.(HELLO? HELLO! OI! HELLO! I CAN'T HEAR YOU! CAN YOU SPEAK LOUDER? PPL CAN'T HEAR YOU AH!!)

Warning: Some of the actions above may lead to the bus driver stopping the bus instantly and kicking you out of the bus personally. Perform at own risk. bears no responsibility for stupid actions taken on bus.

20-06-07 Pics Update

I realized I took many pics that I wanted to blog with but never got to use them so... Here they are, all in one go...

Here's justa scene of the wonderful sky and all that from my floor at a different spot. sorry for the grainy effect buy my camera phone just doesn't have as good a camera as Chung's. Hahah...

You know how women are always well-known for their shopping abilities?

Check this ad in the papers out... For guys, the only brands are Kickers, Lawman and Sifs while for ladies they have Hardy Amies Weekend, Melange, Elle Lingerie, Jockey Longerie... Lafelle and (deep breath) Willow. Obviously, they don't really bother about catering much for the weaker-at-shopping sex...

Just this previous week, after I came back to Sg, there was this "The New Paper Cyber Challenge", which offered competition for NFS:Carbon, Fight Night 3 and NBA Street Home Court on PS3 and; Battlefield 2142 and C & C 3 on PC.

Don't see that many PS3 all in one place very often, yeah...?

I joined the NBA thingy with a friend of mine as registration was free and the 1st prize included a PS3 console and S$1000.00!!!

Nice big TV screen for games, eh? It could almost compare with Chung's one at home!

We both actually made it throught he first 2 rounds and we thought we'd actually stand a chance at the prizes...!

Obviously, it's a guy thing...
Then came the second day when we returned for the quarters. *BOOM!!* We got blasted back into reality. Hahah... We went there just to be beaten 21-17. Well... On the bright side... At least we got to enjoy and play a PS3, right?

With the occasional kids coming along out of curiousity and then keep begging their poor parents to buy the console. Sigh... These cruel, CRUEL advertising ppl...

Anyway... After dragging myself back into reality...

I discovered this shop selling all these board games... There were SOOOOooOOOo many games!!! See for yourself...

Games galore...!!

I kinda missed some of the games that we used to play in the past...

Games like this, "Risk". I remember enjoying this a lot for a period of time. Now, I realize that games like this don't have high re-play values, unlike... THE SETTLERS OF CATAN!!!

Even in places like these you get to see how patriotism is instilled in Singaporeans...

Okaylah... Maybe Malaysia not much different, with her own version too but...

What about this...?

Cool, yeah? I can guess what's inside though... Stories of how to cope with 'kiasuness', stories of the poor Singaporean men trying to tackle Sg women with only 4 out of 5C's, stories of the National Servicemen trying to keep their weight down with the wonderful food in NS(???)

Now, THIS following picture is plain random but I saw it at this music store earlier in the holidays...

I'm sure you can tell that the guitar on the right is the real-sized thing? Well... The one on the LEFT is the main reason for this photo! It's sooooOOo PETITE! A kid's BASS guitar!!??!!

20-06-07 A Touching Forwarded Story

Is it just me or is God's kingdom really just growing by the day?

Here's the story:
I sat, with
two friends, in the picture window of a quaint restaurant just
off the corner of the town-square. The food and the company were both
especially good that day.

As we talked, my attention was drawn outside, across the street. There,
walking into town, was a man who appeared to be carrying all his worldly
goods on his back. He was carrying a well-worn sign that read, 'I will
work for food.' My heart sank.

I brought him to the attention of my friends and noticed that others
around us had stopped eating to focus on him. Heads moved in a mixture of
sadness and disbelief. We continued with our meal, but his image lingered
in my mind. We finished our meal and went our separate ways. I had errands
to do and quickly set out to accomplish them. I glanced toward the town
square, looking somewhat halfheartedly for the strange visitor. I was

fearful, knowing that seeing him again would call for some response. I
drove through town and saw nothing of him. I made some purchases at a
store and got back in my car.

Deep within me, the Spirit of God kept speaking to me: 'Don't go back to
the office until you've at least driven once more around the square.'

Then, with some hesitancy, I headed back into town. As I turned the
square's third corner, I saw him. He was standing on the steps of the
store front church, going through his sack.

I stopped and looked, feeling both compelled to speak to him, yet wanting
to drive on. The empty parking space on the corner seemed to be a sign
from God: an invitation to park. I pulled in, got out and approached the
town's newest visitor.

'Looking for the pastor?' I asked.

'Not really,' he replied, 'just resting.'

'Have you eaten today?'

'Oh, I ate something early this morning.'

'Would you like to have lunch with me?'

'Do you have some work I could do for you?'

'No work,' I replied. 'I commute here to work from the city, but I would
like to take you to lunch.'

'Sure,' he replied with a smile.

As he began to gather his things, I asked some surface questions. Where
you headed?'

' St. Louis .'

'Where you from?'

'Oh, all over; mostly Florida .'

'How long have you been walking?'

'Fourteen years,' came the reply.

I knew I had met someone unusual. We sat across from each other in the
same restaurant I had left earlier. His face was weathered slightly beyond
his 38 years. His eyes were dark, yet clear, and he spoke with an
eloquence and articulation
that was startling. He removed his jacket to
reveal a bright red T-shirt that said, 'Jesus is The Never Ending Story.'

Then Daniel's story began to unfold. He had seen rough times early in
life. He'd made some wrong choices and reaped the consequences. Fourteen
years earlier, while backpacking across the country, he had stopped on the
beach in Daytona. He tried to hire on with some men who were putting up a
large tent and some equipment. A concert, he thought.

He was hired, but the tent would not house a concert but revival services,
and in those services he saw life more clearly. He gave his life over to

'Nothing's been the same since,' he said, 'I felt the Lord telling me to
keep walking, and so I did, some 14 years now.'

'Ever think of stopping?' I asked.

'Oh, once in a while, when it seems to get
the best of me. But God has
given me this calling. I give out Bibles. That's what's in my sack. I work
to buy food and Bibles, and I give them out when His Spirit leads.'

I sat amazed. My homeless friend was not homeless. He was on a mission and
lived this way by choice. The question burned inside for a moment and then
I asked: 'What's it like?'


'To walk into a town carrying all your things on your back and to show
your sign?'

'Oh, it was humiliating at first. People would stare and make comments.
Once someone tossed a piece of half-eaten bread and made a gesture that
certainly didn't make me feel welcome. But then it became humbling to
realize that God was using me to touch lives and change people's concepts
of other folks like me.'

My concept was changing, too. We finished our dessert and
gathered his
things. Just outside the door, he paused. He turned to me and said, 'Come
Ye blessed of my Father and inherit the kingdom I've prepared for you. For
when I was hungry you gave me food, when I was thirsty you gave me drink,
a stranger and you took me in.'

I felt as if we were on holy ground. 'Could you use another Bible?' I

He said he preferred a certain translation. It traveled well and was not
too heavy. It was also his personal favorite. 'I've read through it 14
times,' he said.

'I'm not sure we've got one of those, but let's stop by our church and
see.' I was able to find my new friend a Bible that would do well, and he
seemed very grateful'Where are you headed from here?' I asked.'Well, I
found this little map on the back of this amusement park coupon.'

'Are you hoping to hire on there
for awhile?'

'No, I just figure I should go there. I figure someone under that star
right there needs a Bible, so that's where I'm going next.'

He smiled, and the warmth of his spirit radiated the sincerity of his
mission. I drove him back to the town square where we'd met two hours
earlier, and as we drove, it started raining. We parked and unloaded his

'Would you sign my autograph book?' he asked. 'I like to keep messages
from folks I meet.'

I wrote in his little book that his commitment to his calling had touched
my life. I encouraged him to stay strong. And I left him with a verse of
scripture from Jeremiah, 'I know the plans I have for you, declared the
Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you; Plans to give you a
future and a hope.'

'Thanks, man,' he said. 'I know we just met and
we're really just
strangers, but I love you.'

'I know,' I said, 'I love you, too.' 'The Lord is good!'

'Yes, He is.'

'How long has it been since someone hugged you?' I asked.

'A long time,' he replied

And so on the busy street corner in the drizzling rain, my new friend and
I embraced, and I felt deep inside that I had been changed. He put his
things on his back, smiled his winning smile, and said, 'See you in the
New Jerusalem.'

'I'll be there!' was my reply.

He began his journey again. He headed away with his sign dangling from
his bedroll and pack of Bibles. He stopped, turned, and said, 'When you
see something that makes you think of me, will you pray for me?'

'You bet,' I shouted back, 'God bless.'

'God bless.' And that was the last I saw of him.

Late that
evening as I left my office, the wind blew strong. The cold
front had settled hard upon the town. I bundled up and hurried to my car.
As I sat back and reached for the emergency brake, I saw them... a pair of
well-worn brown work gloves neatly laid over the length of the handle. I
picked them up and thought of my friend and wondered if his hands would
stay warm that night without them.

Then I remembered his words: 'If you see something that makes you think of
me, will you pray for me?'

Today his gloves lie on my desk in my office. They help me to see the
world and its people in a new way, and they help me remember those two
hours with my unique friend and to pray for his ministry. 'See you in the
New Jerusalem,' he said. Yes, Daniel, I know I will...

17-06-07 not just "Another Forwarded Story"

There was a little boy visiting his grandparents on their farm. He was given
a slingshot to play with out in the woods. He practiced in the woods; but he
could never hit the target. Getting a little discouraged, he headed back for
dinner. As he was walking back he saw Grandma's pet duck.

Just out of impulse, he let the slingshot fly, hit the duck square in the
head and killed it. He was shocked and grieved!

In a panic, he hid the dead duck in the wood pile; only to see his sister
watching! Sally had seen it all, but she said nothing.

After lunch the next day Grandma said, "Sally, let's wash the dishes" But
Sally said, "Grandma, Johnny told me he wanted to help in the kitchen." Then
she whispered to him, "Remember the duck?" So Johnny did the dishes.

Later that day, Grandpa asked if the children wanted to go fishing and
Grandma said, "I'm sorry but I need Sally to help make supper." Sally just
smiled and said, "Well that's all right because Johnny told me he wanted to
help" She whispered again, "Remember the duck?" So Sally went fishing and
Johnny stayed to help.

After several days of Johnny doing both his chores and Sally's; he finally
couldn't stand it any longer.

He came to Grandma and confessed that he had killed the duck.

Grandma knelt down, gave him a hug and said, "Sweetheart, I know. You see, I
was standing at the window and I saw the whole thing, but because I love
you, I forgave you. I was just wondering how long you would let Sa lly make
a slave of you."

Thought for the day and every day thereafter?

Whatever is in your past, whatever you have done...and the devil keeps
throwing it up in your face (lying, cheating, debt, fear, bad habits,
hatred, anger, bitterness, etc.)...whatever it is...You need to know
that God was standing at the window and He saw the whole thing. He has seen
your whole life. He wants you to know that He loves you and that you are

He's just wondering how long you will let the devil make a slave of you. The
great thing about God is that when you ask for forgiveness; He not only
forgives you, but He forgets. It is by God's grace and mercy that we are
saved. Go ahead and make the difference in someone's life today. Share this
with a friend and always remember:

God is at the window! When Jesus died on the cross; he was thinking of you!
He forgives all of us, as long as we admit we are sinners and ask for his

17-06-07 Technology - It Sucks! No?

Nintendo Wii, PS3, XboX 360,

Core 2 Duo, iMac,


Panasonic 103" Plasma TV...

It's kinda sad after a while with so much advancement in technology. I begin to think that as we advance in our standard of living, we fall backwards in terms of LIVING LIFE. All those gadgets nowadays tempts us to work hard to earn money with the aim of getting these luxuries so that our family can supposedly enjoy...

What do we end up with in the end? All these gadgets to take up our time instead of time with our loved ones. We communicate by calling or, worse, by SMSing and chatting online with each other. I mean... Proposing online or through SMS? It IS kinda sad eh?(I'm saying this bluntly... Not aiming at anyone, okay? I myself am very much guilty of SMSing and chatting too...) Instead of studying or reading up useful stuff, we end up playing alone on the PS3 or computer and at the end of playing feel very lousy having wasted so much time. I mean... Okayla if you play with family and/or friends but... alone? Sounds like Anti-Social Syndrome(A.S.S.) to me... (Once again, I'm talking about myself here... None of you reading this are so, I'm sure...)

Technology has brought many new phenomenas together with it too... In Singapore, if you're on the bus or on the MRT, 8 out of 10 trips you'll get to hear a handphone suddenly blast off with a song as a call reaches some person's camera-phone cum MP3 player. 10 out of 10 trips you'll see at least 25% of the ppl on board fondling their handphones. I mean... Ask almost any Gen-X or Gen-Y nowadays what they treasure most and... You guessed it... Their handphone.

Anyway... Back to camera phones... The relatively new phenomenon it has brought is NO DOUBT... "Cam-whoring"! The other day I was going through the Friendster accounts of my friends and well... Heheh... I can show you better than I can tell you........

Hahah... Now, I chose these pics only because you guys and gals look good in the photos so don't come along and push me in some drain now, k? Heheh... I also figured... "Why not let those from church see some of my friends outside of church and those friends in Sg to see my friends in 'Other Parts of the World'..." No harm done, right?

Now, concerning cam-whoring... I'm NOT complaining! I mean...
Pretty People + Cam-whoring = Thank God!!!

Actually I'm just saying that so that those pictured won't feel invaded... heheh...

15-06-07 Randomnity VII - "A Time to Update"

It's been so long I dunno what to update on so... I'll just use my pictures to remind me as I go along, okay?

Right before I came back, I left my hair to grow for the 3 months since the previous holidays. Many people wondered how long it would be already. Be surprised here. Be VERY surprised...

Ain't exactly long, right? I still managed to tie it up if I wanted to, though... (Pssst... Don't scold me for ridding you of your appetite yet... I was NOT naked when I took this pic... I just happened to finish showering so... *ahem*)

The Sunday prior to my return to Miri was Pentecost Sunday and there was this Global Day of Prayer taking place in many countries the world over(Unfortunately, M'sia wasn't one of them). Here are just a few pics of it...

It's really nice to see so many people come to just worship God and pray... This really was an enriching and enlightening experience!

There's Ms. Doris Gan, one of the MOE officers in charge of the ASEAN scholars, in red, taking pics.

This is one of the small opening ceremony stuff. There were this whole bunch of lil' kids among the throng of people waving the flags. They looked as if they would just trip anytime... So adorable! Heheh...

At the start of the holidays, my CT Class,07S45, had this chalet outing. I decided against joining as I had enough trouble getting back on time at night on many occasions I think my image in the eyes of the guards has been tarnished ENOUGH already. Heheh...

I had to make do with just joining the BBQ session.

Sexy charcoal, no? I had a hand in keeping the fire burning! Or rather... The charcoal hot... Whatever...

That's it for the stuff that have happened... Now for the randomer stuff!

Boy, my puppies have grown...!

This one used to be the naughty lil' black puppy... Now it's officially an irritating, T-shirt staining, lickity-wetty. annoying black BITCH! (It IS female...)

This brown doggy here is the cute, innocent-looking doggie(whatever way you spell it la...), which does not do anything annoying except go out in the hot sun when we open the gate and due to the later closed gate... It goes skinny-dipping in the longkang to cool off... Then when we return it gives us a black surprise! I went back for 10 days only and this silly lil' dog did it TWICE already...! Well.. On the bright side... At least it still LOOKS cute... AND it has a sexy, shiny coat of fur!

Not long ago. I went to watch this movie, "Amazing Grace" telling the story behind the song. The story of the abolition of slave trade in Britain. Anyway, while waiting for the others, I took a trip to the toilet(naturally... Toilock Man what...) and saw this poster behind the door to the cubicle...


As for my spiritual life... Well, on the first morning of holidays, I tried out sth 'novel'... I woke up early before the sun was up and went to the beach opposite my hostel together with my lil' devotion book and my Bible. I sat upon this jetty and just did a REAL quiet time with the sea blowing in my sexily long hair then... I'll just share with you some of the amazing scenes in the serene environment, especially as the sun woke Singapore up...

It really gives the feeling of God's bright eye shining on us, no?

I was walking to take that second pic and as I looked back I saw these 2 sets of footprints in the sand. I thought it looked quite cool... Evolution of 'prints in the sand'... Heehee...

The next two pics were taken elsewhere while I was on my bike. I just stopped to take these pics cos they seemed appropriate. :P

This was while I was riding by the roadside.

This... In the park beside the beach beside my hostel.

And finally... Let me introduce you to my 'last-moved-in roommate. This was in March or sometime then la.

He was camwhoring with my cam and forgot to delete the pic so I thought... What the heck...
