Keep a mental and spiritual wastebasket, so that you can discard old ideas. Throw away the bad to get the good, throw away the good to get the better, throw away the better to get the best.

Let Christ stimulate your mind into greater creativity. In Christ you have the most absolutely stimulating force in the universe. He coaxes a summer out of a winter, a bird out of a shell and life out of a dead spirit.

Lord Jesus, Your hand once touched the dead,Your voice penetrated to them and they arose. Do it again-to me. Come and think in me, live in me, love in me and make me a more creative person. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Today-A good news and a sad news

Received an early birthday card from Little Debbie.


This morning, my dad told me that Eric Kirton passed away. I was quite sad. He was quite a well known speaker among the Brethren churches. Though I don't personally know him but I've heard him a few times. The first time was during Residential Bible School 4 years ago and the last time was at a conference in September. I believe he has left a legacy behind and have truly impacted many with God's word.

Once again I'm reminded of our existence here on Earth. Do I really cherish the Salvation God has given? Am I contending the faith that was given to me or am I taking it for granted? This life...am I making full use of it and doing things that have eternal value?

Adelene, stop grumbling and whining. Wake up.

Feelings and thoughts are all over the place.
Going to become a year older. Prone to have THAT thought. Sigh.

Sungai Gabai

Today my church YF had an outing to Sg. Gabai. It's been a long time since I've followed them for an outing. The last time I went to this place was 7 years ago. So much has changed since then and the saddest thing is, it got dirtier. People just don't seem to care about the cleanliness of this place. But anyway, I enjoyed myself today. It'so different from the usual routine that I face everyday.

This is what I had to endure before reaching the place.

Meng Yee with the small farts :-) The boy with Meng Yee on the lower right picture is so cute! Doesn't he look like a guinea pig? (in a cute way...hehe)
Clockwise from upper left:1. Worship session 2.Those gila boys sliding down 3.On your mark,get set, slide! 4. I call them Tyshu and Chee Sian.

Sungai Gabai-Not people pictures

Tyshu and I were taking pictures of the butterflies. There were the big,orange ones, but couldn't take them because(as usual) my camera's battery must always finish at
the time I want to use it the most.

My big feet. Nothing else better to do.

Oh!I was trying to remember the rocks and minerals I learnt last semester. The mineral pyrite is golden in colour. I think the golden colour on this rock is pyrite.Hah!See I'm making full use of my 'karat-ed' geology knowledge.

Reflection on the water


On the way home, we stopped to take pictures of the Semenyih dam. The scenary was so nice and the atmosphere was so quiet and peaceful. So different from the usual busyness I face everyday.Wished we could stay longer though..but couldn't. Ended up using Meng Yee's brother's camera again and I hope to get the pictures from you :-)

Easter Celebration at University of Malaya:14th of March 2007

Last Wednesday was truly amazing. Now, I just pray that the Easter message will continue to speak and inspire those who attended the Easter musical and even to me. I remember not only Christ's death on the cross, but how He has risen and conquered death for a sinner like you and me...and now I have HOPE

"And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty....If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most pitiable. But now Christ is risen from the dead..."
"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us...And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have now received the reconciliation"

It is so painful!

Ouch! Is all I can say for the past 2 and a half days. On Wednesday night, just as our Easter night was about to start, I had a terrible sore throat and headache. Yesterday, whole day I was feeling so sick...so Bleh...and today, because of my terrible posture while I was sleeping last night, I woke up with a terrible pain on my right hand. You see, I was too tired that I slept on my right hand most of the night. Probably I was feeling cold and didn't bother to use the blanket to cover myself. Even as I type this, I feel the pain. More pain if I write or even hold a spoon. Playing the piano just now during CG was...err...so painful :-( So, to all of you. Please appreciate the hands God has given you even when you are writing or eating. Never take them for-granted.
Just now I was reading a friend's blog and it reminded me of my previous posts. Some of you (if there is any), and especially my sister noticed that previously my writings were quite cryptic. Well, for obvious reasons I didn't want to make it sound so obvious. If not, you know lar...Mike will then ask me 1 million questions :-) Well, I think I have gotten over it. The situation hasn't gotten better or worst but I thank God that the hard part has gone away-me getting over it,once and for all. Maybe. See, my words are crpytic again. I just can't help it :-)
Ouch! Right hand still hurts...

Within 15 minutes...

I managed to capture this small insects with my camera. I wouldn't have noticed them if I didn't look properly. Come to think of it, this is how we are most of the time. We are so busy with ourselves that we are so often ignorant of what is happening around us.

4 Collages

Flowers in the garden. Leaves
Indians having a Chinese New Year reunion dinner. Can you spot the Chinese? :-) Debbie and I had a posing session.

Random

*Yawn* I'm so bored sitting down here at the computer lab. It's one of the very few days when I can get bored sitting down here, waiting for my next class.
~~~
So many 'happenings' these past few weeks and I'm just plain lazy to tell them here. Many good things happened. Got many blessings from God which I truly am so grateful and thankful for. I've learnt that prayer is not only essential in my life, but it is the only thing that keeps me going. Faced many different situations with people I know and have learnt how to deal with them. So much of learning and reassurance from God. Well, I can say that there was a mixture of so many things that I don't know how to explain them.
~~~
I miss my family. Chinese New Year was a great time because apart from Christmas it is the time when the whole family gets together again. No one knows this, but I don't quite like the feeling once everyone leaves home. It's like a sudden change. From a house filled with people and suddenly it's just me and my parents, and my Panda, and Sumiati. Oh well...
~~~
Yesterday night was so bizarre. I had 2 nightmares.*Shocking!*After the 2nd nightmare (about a death in the family,*gasp!), I suddenly woke up and a few seconds later Mike messaged me saying that WP had just given birth to a baby boy! What a sudden change! Well, I'm so glad for both Mike and WP. Now in total, I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces. :-) Can't wait to see all of them again.
~~~
Easter Night @UM...everyone is so busy with practises and preparations. I've been running here and there meeting people and getting approvals done. One year ago, I didn't/couldn't imagine myself actually meeting people. All this while I have been afraid to speak up or even meet people whom I don't really know but I now I'm so thankful for this opportunity. The feeling of getting things approved is so satisfying..hehe..But truly, it's by God's grace and I've leart and am still learning to really depend on Him in all areas which seem to be out of my control.
~~~
*Yawn*again. Time's up. Got to attend class.
