  1. Free from the Past

    November 7, 2011





    Hello everyone, 


    Yes I know I have not been blogging for awhile. Was REALLY busy with my exams and assignments! 
    It was hard but I know I've gained a lot from it.




    Have been talking to a friend lately and discovered that we had similar experiences before we were reborn in Christ. It struck my heart again. As if I took a tour back to the old days where I can almost feel the grief stabbing my heart, strangling my neck and burdening my soul.


    I remember the days where no love could satisfy me and nothing about me can satisfy myself. I was blinded with my sins and pride. Yes, self-abased IS prideful. But, the love of Cross set me free!






    Anyways I'm free from my past now, it was just something that moulded me and made me who I am today. I am extremely grateful for them. His grace, His plans, His love, His truth-- how amazing they are! You are free from your sins and heartache as well, as long as you seek His face.


    His kingdom awaits!









    Galatians 5:1 NIV
    It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.



    加拉太书 5:1
    基督已经释放了我们,叫我们得以自由,所以要站立的稳,不要再被奴仆的轭辖制。

  2. Patronising Update

    October 20, 2011

    Ah yea, another patronising update.
    I would LOVE to post something else but I don't really have the time for it. 


    But but but! I do have something to blog in my mind. So please wait for it alright?




    Well I am now pushing everything that I enjoy aside to force myself to focus on my assignments and exam.
    I have TONS of assignments to complete within 2 weeks. #die#




    I applied the Premack's law onto myself  ._________. 
    I have a few projects to work on. But of course, everything gotta wait til' the semester ends.
    Oh well, that kinda motivated me a little.




    Hmm, and I found out one of my biggest fears-- calling people I don't know! This might not make sense to you but it is super dreading for me! I sure hope that I can just rely on email but I will get over it. Since I have no other choice but to call the centres one by one to get approval for survey.









    Need to get back to work. Hope I'll survive all the phone calls.







    God bless your day!

  4. Country Rocks!

    October 6, 2011

    I met a few friends recently, typical Malaysian Chinese youngsters.






    We chit-chatted and I popped a question: "What music do you guys listen to?"


    Friends: Well, the usual.


    Me: What exactly is the usual?


    Friends: Duh, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Lee Hom,***** (some names I don't even know :-O) ....


    Me: Cool... do you guys like country music?


    Friends: What is country music?


    Me: You know, Rodney Atkins, Garth Brooks. Just to name a few.
    (friends gave blurred expressions)


    Me: Taylor Swift. Ring a bell?


    Friends: I know Taylor Swift. But what does she has to do with country music? 'Country' sounds so old-fashioned.


    Me: ..... 




    In my mind was like...
    COUNTRY MUSIC IS SOOOOOOOO UNDERRATED IN MALAYSIA.


    How can they not know a single thing about country music?!?












    I'm not saying that pop songs and pop singers aren't good (although I don't like some of them) and all country songs are the best, but won't they ever get sick of crappy songs nowadays?


    *Lazy to explain what is country music lah, just ask Mr.Google if you are interested.* : )




    Why do I like country so much?
    - I can sleep to it
    - wonderful background music arrangements
    - free-spirited
    - always have that lively and positive vibe
    - Just because I hate crappy songs full of subliminal messages Effortlessly sung 
    - I have a thing for effortless and sort of "frank" qualities in country singers 




    Here are some of my all time/recent (potentially all time) country favourites!






    Red River Blue (by Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert)
    My favourite lullaby!







    Take a Back Road (by Rodney Atkins)










    Why Me Lord (by Johnny Cash)
    Good old country gospel








    Summer Girl (by Leighton Meester)







    If I Die Young (by The Band Perry)










































    I'm no expert in Country music but I hope you'll enjoy it!




    God bless!

  5. The Chance

    September 23, 2011

    An experience I heard from a friend: She had a close mentor in her company that had been a guide and a guardian to her. They had many great, memorable moments together. Among all of her KL colleagues (she is a Sarawakian), she wanted to share gospel to this particular person the most. She even invited him/her ( I don't know her mentor >< ) to an evangelical meeting, hoping that he/she will get to know Jesus Christ. Unfortunately he/she rejected.


    My friend told herself, there's always another chance. Maybe next time. She can always wait till another suitable functions and meetings. Better to wait rather than scaring him/her away right? Unfortunately there aren't as many chances as we thought. Her mentor passed away a few days ago.


    My friend mentioned: "I don't have the chance to say 'Jesus loves you'..."


    You and I might heard stories like this many times, or maybe not even once. What did this story tells you?
    Ask yourself, ask deeply into your  heart. 


    Think about your family, friends, colleagues, neighbours. Do we ALWAYS have the chance? The lost souls around us. Can they REALLY WAIT?




    I hope this short testimony will help you to realize our mission on earth. 
    If you KNOW your mission, you WANT to fulfill it, but you have no PASSION,

    Pray for it. Ask God for it.


    Because you need it, just like I do. 








    His kingdom is near....

  7. Updates

    September 8, 2011

    Sorry for the previous emo post.  :( I hate posting emo entries too.

    最近有很多的属灵争战,也异常地软弱,请大家为我多多祷告哦...

    福音营会要到了,上帝在动工,撒旦也在动工。很多迹象可以看到,恶者正紧咬着我们不放:搅扰大家的信心、挑战筹委们的合一、回教营地中的属灵争战...

    但上帝必要在这一切软弱当中得胜。我如是坚信





    这就是以琳少团举办的福音营会 “穿洋越海  不再一Young” !!!
    以航海冒险故事为主轴带出营员真实的自己,并借此带领他们一步一步地认识救恩...

    我们的主要target是一群边缘少年,要使他们敞开并不简单,而且营会还有很多很多事情要解决,因此要招兵买马!


    其实是招代祷勇士啦 Prayer Warriors wanted!!!
    请加入代祷行列哦~ Thank you very much :DD

    Will update more about the camp and prayer items :) Stay tuned!



    ****


    Done with the business and my personal updates now.
    Just a short one :)


    1 August

    18th "pok pok chui" birthday. I'm really grateful, I always have the best birthdays filled with love and blessings.

    Polaroid from dear Shen Wen. Love it! 


    27 August

    Met up with Jacqueline @ Sunway and surprised everyone with her unexpected arrival at fellowship! I have to say, their expressions are priceless. Ngehehehek. Again, people, don't be jealous just because Jiage didn't tell you that she will be back early ok?  

    Jloh is in da house!!! @ Sakae sushi

    @ Sakae sushi with Jloh
    Btw, I changed my hairstyle again. Back to bob. Still have some "leftover curls" though. And I dyed it reddish brown with purple undertone! Love it :) But the purple pretty much faded to zero after a few washes. Sad.



    28 August

    Went to St. Andrew church and met Wei wen! DT people, don't be jealous. Oh, and met fellows from Yue Xiang Fellowship too. Gosh, miss you guys :(


    With my lovely sisters Charlene and Vivienne @ 48th anniversary of St. Andrew Church.
     Credits to Chong chong  xD
    And thank you Yan Yi for comforting me during my hard times. You're an angel.










    That's pretty much about it.
    Remember guys, keep Elim fellowship's camp in your prayers! We need it!


    Thanks for reading and God bless.



    1 Corinthians 10:31 
    “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 

    哥林多前书 10:31
    “所以你们或吃或喝、无论做什么,都要为荣耀神而行。”



    p/s: I'm practicing to end my every entry with bible verse.

  8. Today I'm Sad

    September 6, 2011

    I can't take it anymore!!!!!!!!!

    Everything I do, it is just wrong for you. You don't know how hard it is!
    Try it yourself and you'll know how difficult it is!

    It have been a long time since I last shed tears for stuffs like this. Anything she did is much better than mine isn't it? ISN'T IT?????
    I knew it. Right from the start, I knew it.


    I AM NEVER BETTER THAN HER. NEVER.


    Even if we were doing the same thing...

    It sure surprised me when I discovered how fragile I actually am. I never thought your lectures could hurt me like this. I felt so embarrassed to find myself crying over this. It was just typical grandmother lecturing and comparing her granddaughters on their homework isn't it? No big deal.

    I now see... I never really successfully untie the knots. I never asked Jesus to heal this wound, I thought it is unnecessary.

    I could never hate you. I truly love and respect you from the bottom of my heart.

    Feel like I've been unconciously hurt by others a lot lately, but no, I have not given up. I never will.
    Sorry for the emo post that is totally useless and unrelated to anyone. I just need a space to cry myself out.

    but it seems like I can't stop my tears....





    Says it all.

  9. Fear

    August 30, 2011

    不能再压抑了。靠着自己建筑的墙,再巩固也有倒塌的一天。


    那么久以来都只是持着自己的意志力建起这道墙,现在这道墙有裂口了,大不大还不知道,只是担心有一天... 墙完全瓦解了怎么办?

    若非耶和华建造房屋,建造的人就枉然劳力

    那么简单的道理不是不知道,那么多年来也去努力学习,唯有这件事,怎么学也学不会。我也知道靠着意志力的事情,到最后是枉然劳力...

    我竟然开始羡慕你,开始自怜了起来。羡慕你可以自由地表达你的感受;而我不可以。羡慕你可以光明正大地说出来;而我不可以。羡慕你可以让别人知道;我连这样的资格都没有。

    还有好多好多的羡慕、奇怪的感觉... 我真的很害怕。

    这种五味杂陈的感觉我真的真的很害怕,因为我真的很不想就这样陷入一个我最挣扎的情况


    上帝啊,我的感受你最清楚、我的软弱你最明白。救救我...
