After 2 months...

...i'm back to blogging again. To be honest i really like blogging and want to a lot but when i always sit in front of my blog, either i don't know what to write, or i'm not sure if i should write what i want to write, or i'm tired. Blogging is not an easy as it looks as you have to be careful of what you write, or in other words TYPE, in your blog. Some peoples blog are full of crap and thats what i want to avoid, because i hate crap. Definition for crap, crap = things/words/pictures that are extra or that people already know or that it just doesn't benefit either the writer or the people reading it.

"Summary" of the past two months:-

Exams came and gone. There were highs and lows. Exiting the examination rooms were more frightening than entering them because i know i didn't do very well, at least not as well as i could have done. But what's done is done. I only have myself to blame. Holidays came. One of the most fruitful hols i have had since joining UTAR. Had MUET tuition (taught by Esmond's mom herself), brushed up on my piano, exercised (partially forced by mom, but i don't mind ^^ ), spent time with my "sister" Miki (sometimes wished she was named Kimi, sounds so much better than her other name which sounds like she is a mouse with black round ears), and most of all got to be able to be with my mom. =)

Holidays came to an end, but it ended well...BECAUSE...the last 3 days of my hols were spent in Camerons. ^^ I was there to attend LIFE GAME camp. Although i went to a similar camp before, i decided to go again. Overall i did enjoy my time with my God, made some new friends and learnt some stuff as well. =) Prior to the camp, i got my exam results and it wasn't good, i almost wanted to skip the camp but in the end i decided to go anyway. Sorry to my friends if my mood had affected any of you, thanks for being there for me. =) 

After the camp, sem resumed and i attended classes and bla bla bla...One subject is interesting and the other...DOWNRIGHT boring...PENGAJIAN MALAYSIA...secondary school replaying all over again. Its almost like History which if you know me well enough, i have no interest in. Want proof? Just ask my sister. ^^ Maybe i can find someway to finally have interest of the history of MY OWN COUNTRY

My brother celebrated his 21st birthday in advance (his birthday is on the * of November ****). The people whom he invited was not very far from what i expected. The people who attended "mounted" up to about 30+-. One thing he said on that night, he said :"Now i know what a wonderful family i have." Well bro, better late than never. XD 

Shoutout to my bro:
Happy Birthday bro!!! 21 years on earth does it feel?...getting bored?...move to mars and i'm sure you'll miss earth and ME (^^) (perasan-ing now). Although i can't see much changes (either than ur size and voice) in you since i know you, i'm sure you've grown to be more matured and intelligent. You have pissed me off countless times but you're not a pain in the neck for me, most probably cause i'm used to it or i'm not affected by it. Haha. Continue to grow in the Lord and serve him with all your heart.

Here's a little critic. Just so you know you're not the best in guitar you know (not saying that i am though, well maybe you are in your group of people), there's definitely room for improvement for you as well as you think there is room for improvement for others. Don't pull the brakes where you are, you can improve some more!!! (this sentence applies to everything, not only guitar). You have the KEY now. Don't give up on things as easily as you give up on some computer games, HAHAHA. I have to admit i look up to you in certain aspects but in some other aspects i'm glad i was never like you (in a way i learn through you too la, thx bro! ^^)...^^. Don't get angry so easily la ok? =) get angry at me easily nevermind, but don't get angry at others easily, if its hardily then...get angry lah. XD!!! BUT DON'T SIN!!! Just a reminder, i know you know that already.

 Don't worry about the responsibility of the family and stuff, i will try my best to help out too. =) I won't chicken and run la, dun worry. ^^ No matter what, you'll aways be my bro and I ♥ U. =) Dun cry when you read this ya. Btw i'm ok with criticism and advices from you too. Don't hesitate to tell me ya. I want to improve too you know. =)

October ends.

Just want to say here that right now while i'm typing this, i miss:-
 my sister
 my b ♥

not that i don't think of others, just....not now...hehe...=D

A timely update

^^ just a little update before i officially stop blogging till after exams. Many things have been happening in the pass month. Obstructions came, one after another. Of course there were happy times as well. At times i was just so tired i couldn't even lift a finger. But then again, who isn't tired after going through UTAR's killer regime?

HIllsong came to ipoh sometime in August (I don't remember the date). It was really a wonderful experience for me as i have never been to a real concert before as in standing among the people who are actually there. As expected, many people, from ipoh and out station came for this event. I don't really know their true intentions of coming but i hope that they came for the right reason: TO WORSHIP GOD.

I was actually very surprised as i observed some of my friends who were there. My Gosh you should have seen them. They were so on FIRE when they normally aren't during normal Sunday service. As i looked at them i was like "oh puh-lease". They were so high and "holy" even i was shocked. I think it was the atmosphere kicking in, or they just wanted to show their friends how "holy" they were. Honestly i'm not at a position to judge so i just wan to say sorry, i mean..maybe you were really worshiping right? Who knows? Only God knows. So i leave that between you and God.^^ Just want everyone to know that no matter where you worship God your attitude should be the same. Don't just truly worship God during youth camp or concerts like this.

Overall i must say, the musicians were spot on, as well as the music selection. Some don't think so but its ok, everyone has their own opinions i guess. My mom was actually glad she didn't turn up as i would have imagined, she would have probably left like five seconds after it began. XD!!! I actually came down from kampar and back on the same night/evening.

Mid terms were a killer. Didn't do well in most of them i must say. Have to sort out my priorities. Oh yeah, after weeks of running around, i finally managed to pass up my ptptn application. A great burden lifted off my shoulders. WHEW!!! pity pity end...XD yea...SUCH a pity its ended...haha. The whole thingi actually cost me about RM50 and with me making a mistake and printing the whole set all over again, it roughly cost me about RM60++. Silly me.

Had a fun time last Saturday playing Bible treasure hunt. Thought we finished everyting till ee chiet took out a crossword puzzle for everyone to complete. =.= It was fun la anyway. ^^

Hosanna cell had a prayer meet last Wed. All the best to everyone. We can do it through Christ who strengthens us!!! ^^ Gambateh people!!! We will conquer all the papers!!! Talking bout finals, i better get to my studies as well. Thats all for my update people. Till nextime.

bring it on!

I'm back in kampar again, as usual. This weekend proved to be a fruitful and exiting weekend for me. I led worship for the first time, watched Germany trashed Argentina 4 goals to nil, serve God by playing for the first and second service and of course meet my friends and my sweet b. ^^

This week will be a very challenging week for me. Mid-term tests for calculus, programming, and maybe statistics and practical assessment for data comm. I really got to work hard if i am to get good results in any of these mid-term papers. I have to do catching for data comm and calculus, its going to be a busy week for me. Lord, i really need Your help.

I'm sure God will be there for me ^^, as He was when i led worship on Saturday. Could feel he was there all the way, leading and guiding me. Just want to thank everyone for all your prayers and encouragement. Will there be a second time? Who knows? I'm just grateful i actually have the chance to lead worship. Thanks to everyone who played for me and backed me up. THANK YOU!

I really want to do well this semester and i know at times i have been slacking. So, yeah, really need your prayers people. =) As for this week, i'm sure God will bring me through and once again show me how wonderful and great He is, as usual. ^^ Bring it on mid-terms!!!

Hehe, my blogging must be feeling so happy now that i'm filling it up more. ^^ I actually feel nice about this.

Prediction on who will win the world cup:-
1) Spain
2) Germany
3) Holland
4) Uruguay (sorry lah XD!)

bek to blogging ^^

So long have i not even touch by blog, not that i can touch it la. hehe...well, there are many things that i would like to share and i will...if i remember all of them. So be patient and let me think of what i want to share. Hmm...Let me see... for this post i would really like to share about my degree life SO FAR.

My degree life started on the 31st of May 2010 at 8.00 am. CALCULUS and APPLICATIONS. First few minutes were a piece of cake, and then it just got harder and harder. The lecturer was going on and on like there was no tomorrow. I don't know whether he forgot or what, but he didn't even give us our 5 minutes break. Sitting in the lecture seat for 2 straight hours is tiring you know, although i know standing there lecturing is also tiring la. Well, as the "bullet train" went on and as time passed, i realized i failed to keep up. Like, who can keep up running side by side with a train right?

He was skipping some stuff giving the excuse that he has to go fast cause if not he will not be able to finish the syllabus. The best excuse was his excuse of skipping those stuff. His excuse is always the same: "I'm sure you guys know this right, you've learnt it in your foundation or on your secondary school add maths". I was i learn this? I mean like yea, maybe some stuff i didn't pay attention to during secondary school or something but you could at least run through it and not skip it totally right?

So on i went to the next class, still lost in the things that i didn't understand in the first. Next class...TEAM BUILDING and LEADERSHIP. The lecturer was kind of a nice guy. At least he is one of them who can actually speak proper pronunciation of english. ^^ Well he was nice but the first class didn't go so well, at least with me it didn't.

Things he said that made the class degrade:-
1) I'm going to change each and everyone of you and you'll be a different person by the end of this sem...confident, speak clearly with the right volume, body posture... ... ...(try me ^^ maybe its cause i'm not like others who are timid to speak in front of a crowd and stuff like dat,church certainly helped me a lot! ^^ i wouldn't mind a makeover or an improvement though)
2) I'm going to drill you all left and right,up and down (i was like yea right)
3) first assignment is due on week 3 (i was like WHAT?! that soon?!)

next class (still 31st of May)-SUN ZI"S Art of War and Business Strategies. Sounded interesting, but as it was in english and the lecturer's english was ahem...i didn't und a single thing he was talking about in the whole 2 hours of the lecture and this is my first class mind you. GOSH~~don't know how i'm going to survive 10 weeks of this. SUN ZI is suppose to be a book written bout strategies in war which also applies to business strategies in the modern age. Many people said it was nice reading the ORIGINAL chinese version than listen to the lecturer teach. As for me, i'm more comfortable with english and i'm definetely not going to read the chinese version.

The other 4 subs are Data Communication and Networking, Programming Concepts and Design, Introduction to Computer Organization and Architecture and Statistics. In summary, Programming was ok, cause i did pretty well in my programming in foundation. =) Intro to comp also ok LAH, und and keeping up so far. Statistics,well...its getting harder and the formulas i learnt in secondary school s totally different from here, its like i wasted my time =(. The worse nightmare is DATA COMM.

Interesting as it may be, its SUPER COMPLICATED. The lecturer predicted that by week 3 many would have either dropped this subject or not attend his lecture and HE WAS RIGHT. He also said something that was scary. He said:"last semester i gave the students mid term, open book, open internet, open neighbour and none of them got full marks. Finals, open book, and only 1 person got an A for this subject and about 60% passed,the others all failed." SCARY WEH. i'm liking it though some things which i learnt in week 2 i still don't know up till now (week 5). Better go look for lecturer and ask before things get worse.

Subject preview. END>>> =)

Home Sweet Home =)

I'm back to blogging again...hehe...i admit it has been a while, even my typing speed has slown down. Sorry bloggie.

Exams are over. I don't know if i feel happy that it has ended or sad that i am too free now. Hmmm... I hate this feeling. When exams are around the corner and when i'm suppose to study i just feel so lazy, but now that it has ended i actually feel like studying. I must be going crazy. Maybe its because i feel i could have done better. Well, I know i did my best and i surrender my results and my future into God's hands. Not that i'm going to blame Him if i get poor results or anything, but i just believe He will bring me through. Just want to say a BIG thank you to my wonderful God for being there with me when i study and when i was in the exam hall attempting the questions. And i want to sa thank you to my friends too. THANK YOU. And a special thank you to someone special. =) You know who you are.

I came home on the 29th of April, which was a Thursday, NIGHT. Was so happy to see my parents and doggie again. =) Of course i was also happy to see my old buddy laptop who thought he would never have been left behind. Hehe... Now he knows how it feels to gather some dust. But no worries though, cleaned lappy immediately after settling down. My bed was a mess as well and honestly I DON"T KNOW WHY. i don't remember seeing it at this state when i left. Oh well, nevermind, maybe my room wants me to move around a bit. ^^

Well, looking at facebook, i can see that many fellow students are already rotting when its not even a week into sem break yet. Sigh...feel so sorry for them. I actually had plans what to do for the next few days after i came back. On Friday, i went to play badminton with my buddy wai kit. Had fun as my b came along too ^^. Saturday went on fine too. Went to help out aunt pauline with the kindergarden sports day. I didn't help much except for moving some stuff. Felt so ashamed as i didn't know how to take care of small kids. Seeing everyone else taking care of the kids i felt happy for them yet disappointed at the same time cause i didn't know what to do. Wai kit was almost like a pro, mainly cause he worked in a down syndrome childrens home before. My dear kerry also worked in one of those before, and her sisters were also naturals(KINDA). Joee, Yee Wen, Yee Mun, Pei-Qin knew a thing or two too, which leaves me=nil. Sad right. How am i going to be a father next time? Better start learning. =P

Sunday came, monday came along. Hopefully i won't waste precious time during this sem break as i have for the pass sem breaks. God please give me a goal to work on.

Just want to say farewell to my housemate Siu Fei. All the best in persuing architecture in Satapak. I will miss you. Nicholas will miss you too. T.T ~take care buddy. Am in dilemma now on how my future would be like. Will i proceed to degree? Will i still be staying in where i'm staying now? Well, I definetly believe I can make it to degree. With God all things are possible and i have faith He will bring me through. ^^ As for where i will be staying, we shall see what happens.

Will be praying for evryone i can remember to pray for. ^^
* missing her so badly now...i miss u...=)

Praise You in this storm

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

It is finished!!!

Easter is finally over...not that its a bad thing but everyone who was involved in playing the instruments,singing in the choir and acting in the skid would know how tiring it is. It is finished!!!...Christ has won the victory over death and sin!!!...AMEN!!! We did our job. Everyone did a GREAT job. Nice work people. I'm so proud of all of you and i'm sure God is very very proud of all of you too. I'm glad to be involved and i'm happy that i was able to work with all of you. =)

Its been some time since i wrote a post cause as you know i have been quite busy with easter and mid term and stuff like that. This post is also written in the most unlikely of places. TAKE A GUESS where i'm typing this. =p
