you told me who i am

yet another post.

went to an orphanage with youths on saturday.it was a pretty awesome experience save for the excessive sweating and name mix-ups.

to be honest,when we arrived there i was pretty hesitant about the reception we'd be getting.i was worried the kids wouldnt understand us much,and also i was more mentally prepared to do singing with kids around the age range of 5-10,never dreaming there would be those up to 20.so obviously my first reaction was one of anxiety.

still,i was foolish to even worry.the kids were amazing.they made us feel welcome in their home which was a cross between a hut and a shack and a mini kampung.even wilson's game was fun.now that obviously tells something about the kids.

we had a load of fun,not to mention striking moments of determination never to complain about trivial stuff like a bigger home,cause when you've been at theirs,it would be downright ungrateful.
there were a few rachels,a joel,a matthew..but no sarahs.
just a fun fact.lol.

For what it's worth,it was worth all the while

i've been tagged by soo aun kor.well,gives me something to do while very anxious+excited+restless-ly waiting to speed-read through the final harry potter book before someone spoils it with their big mouth,like when Sirius died in the 5th book.anyways,let's skip the bitter reminisce and get to the tag.

it was something for my passive mind-in this whole 2 and a half months break-to think up stuff about me that arent predictable.so,if it turns out that way anyway,don't tell me.

1) Each player must post these rules first.
2) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3) People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
4) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
5) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.Here are 8 little known facts about me:

i was looking around for inspiration and my eyes fell on my handphone.and i realised-

it takes me ages to reply to a text message that i receive,sometimes not replying at all.i think no further elaboration is necessary lest those whose messages i have not replied since a month ago come seeking compensations.but in my defense,i am very forgetful and er,yes lazy too.

people who cannot utter one sentence without keeping the swear words out thinking it's the real cool way of speaking really,and i mean really annoy me.

i like walls mini hazelnut.a lot.

i actually took tae kwan do classes when i was around 8.i quit a couple of weeks later with a white belt.some achievement eh?i cannot remember clearly,i think i was freaked out by the sheer amount(and not to mention the size)of people in a competition i was brought to.nevertheless i stress that i was 8 and considerably inexperienced with big crowds kicking and punching while yelling.
needless to say i wish i didnt shrink away so easily now.

i have a seeming permanently damaged knee due to an accident where i was knocked down by a motorcycle while crossing the road in primary 6.
it twists randomly,whether i'm walking or running.thus,the dread that i faced in National Service during the mornings where we had to jog 2.4km before breakfast,or cross country as morning exercise.

if there was a sleeping contest,i think it'll be safe to say that i just might come up somewhere in the top 3.

i prefer chicken to ducks.

i'm actually a shy person.but i take the initiative to make friends. sometimes.go figure.

there are not many people i would tag in return.but i'll try my best.


i'm not a tech-y person(there u go,fact number nine) and since michelle's off exploring the united kingdom,i'm quite helpless.so i cannot link the name to their sites.though theyre mostlyunder the buddies heading on this page(:
i abdicate.

I know who holds tomorrow

I don't know about tomorrow;
I just live from day to day.
I don't borrow from its sunshine
For its skies may turn to grey.
I don't worry o'er the future,
For I know what Jesus said.
And today I'll walk beside Him,
For He knows what is ahead.

Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.

Every step is getting brighter
As the golden stairs I climb;
Every burden's getting lighter,
Every cloud is silver-lined.
There the sun is always shining,
There no tear will dim the eye;
At the ending of the rainbow
Where the mountains touch the sky.

I don't know about tomorrow;
It may bring me poverty.
But the one who feeds the sparrow,
Is the one who stands by me.
And the path that is my portion
May be through the flame or flood;
But His presence goes before me
And I'm covered with His blood.

I am Yours, evermore.

exams are over.it's funny how they seemed to have dragged on endlessly, considering the fact that it was a mere 4 days,compared to the 2 and a half weeks of slaving through spm.

nevertheless i'm willing to bet maybe a whole bunch of sushi but definitely not my exam results cause i doubt those will be worth a lot that the 2 and a half months of break i'm savouring now will fly right past faster than you can say salmon(okay,yeah so i'm craving for sushi right now.sue me.)

new movies cannot be more welcome to a movie freak like me than times like these.
bring em on.

pull my strings just for a thrill

technically i am on holiday.untechnically(i do not know that opposite of technically,if such word exists,but maybe i hit the mark..who knows)i am supposed to be studying for my finals,the mark of the end of my 1st semester.it's not so much a study break,it's a they-finished-the-syllabus-so-what's-the-use-of-having-classes-anymore break.
okay,it's a study break.

knowing myself i'd probably take my books out of their dusty misery only a day or two before D-Day(s).

envy is something that can take over one's whole self.the very logic,moral and self-control can just melt in the presence of envy.thus the tenth commandment "thou shall not covet." being good at something brings only temporary pleasure until someone better at it materialises.then anything below being the best is not a choice.

so,the only solution i see(disclaimer-i see,not the only solution there is)is through the work of the Holy Spirit,we have to realise that whatever possesions,talents or advantages that we are blessed with is only given to us with the sole purpose that we use it for God,whether to glorify Him or to witness for Him.therefore,our only aim should be of that.that is when God will decide whether He wants to give us more,or take what we have away.

so while we still have these,use them fully for Him knowing that He knows what is best to give to us.envy can only hinder us in our service,serving for the wrong reasons.

oh,by the way,transformers so rock.it's a great movie.i think i'll watch it again.

oops..cannot cannot.study.
