Bad Day - Thank God has been quite a day for me. But it's actually a simple thing yet it turn horribly wrong. My car's aircond broke down two days ago and I decided to fix it today after class. Since I'm here in Kajang/Bangi, I really didn't know any trustworthy foreman. So I called my senior to help and we went to 7 shops all telling me the same thing but all with different prices. Didn't know what to do? I was so tired and it was so hot that I nearly crumbled to the ground. Each time they said the price, it gets higher and higher. Not only that, from one malfunctioned part of the car then it will lead to another. Meaning, firstly they said this broke then later another thing also broke and then another. It's like one whole package. Anyway, I was so lost. In the end, I just fix at the last shop that I visited. They did a real good job but I think they did ripped me off. It was quite expensive. Looks like I've to live on a tight budget. They keep telling me to fix this and that and I was thinking to myself that do they think that I print money. I'm still a university student living on a tight budget and here they are asking me to fix everything. Fear crept into me as I waited, it's like the old situation happening again. Back in Ipoh, I always had to fix the car. Now here again. Oh no... However, despite all this I still want to thank God. Through this experience, I managed to learn a lot of things. When I shared this in my cell group something hit me the most. A friend shared to us that sometimes we should listen first then pray. Maybe that's what I forgot. I only prayed and prayed that God will send me to a good foreman but I forgot to listen for His reply. Instead, I just went with my own intuation. Nevertheless, God still see me through it eventhough it was a tough ride. But I do know that God was trying to teach me something. I guess it was to listen to Him more when I seek Him. Thank you Lord for everything. Now everyday I'm going to pray for my car that nothing will ever happens to it again. Haha...

I Can Only Imagine/Everything

Recently I've been hearing these two songs over and over again and it inspires and encourages me a lot. I hope these songs will help you people too...

I Can Only Imagine
I can only imagine
It would be like
When I walk by Your side
I can only imagine
What my eyes will see
When Your face is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
Surrounded by Your glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for You, Jesus
Or in awe will I be still
Will I stand in Your presence
To my kness will I fall
Will I sing Hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
When that day come
And I find myself
Standing in the sun
I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever, forever worship You
I can only imagine
I can only imagine
God in my living
There in my breathing
God in my waking
God in my sleeping
God in my resting
There in my working
God in my thinking
God in my speaking
Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything
Be my everything
God in my hoping
There in my dreaming
God in my watching
God in my waiting
God in my laughing
There in my weeping
God in my hurting
God in my healing
Christ in me
Christ in me
Christ in me, the hope of Glory
Be my everything

Worship Central

Yesterday I went to the Worship Central Conference in Damansara Utama Methodist Church(DUMC). It was hosted by Tim Hughes and Al gordon. It was a real wonderful experience. Honestly at first, I went there to listen Tim and Al sing but in the end I was there to praise God. God's presence was so strong there and I was so happy to see hundreds just singing and praising God. Tim and Al shared their own testimony and words of encouragement to keep on worshipping and serving God. Worship has the power to change the world and amazing things can happen when we worship. We have to have courage to be passionate, courage to be pure and run the race with perseverance. We must always look at the prize and that is Jesus Christ. For those who are in the music ministry, we must not fall into temptations. Worship leaders are not stars but servants. God wants servants and not stars. So remember that God should be everything in our lives. Everything that we do should glorify God be it in our studies, our thinking, our speaking and our actions. God must always be there. If you put God first, I'm sure that He'll continue to bless you...

Suddenly felt like doing a post about my family. I have a wonderful family. Though each of us have flaws but we do have our strengths too and these help us to stay united. Most importantly, the person that binds us all together is God himself. My family consists of my parents, my brother, me and my additional family member, my pet dog. Haha... I really thank God for giving me such wonderful parents. They nurtured and cared for me with all they have. At times you do wish to have other people's parents but in the long run no parents are better than your own parents. Besides, God had put me into this family and so I must live and love it. Parents may be annoying at times like asking every single detail of happenings in your life and they still treat you as a little child eventhough we are all grown up. But that is the way how they express love and affection. Have you ever thought of how they feel when they scold us? I think they are hurting inside too but they have no choice. As the saying goes, spare the rod, spare the child. So they discipline us to become better human beings when we grow up. My mom is like my best friend. We both tell each other everything. My dad is a good choice maker for other people except himself. I mean that he wants his children to grow up to have a better life than him. He doesn't want us to make the same mistake he did. He is also a very good cook. Next is siblings. I have a very good brother. Yes, as siblings we do quarrel but it will only last like 5 minutes. Don't remember fighting with him pyhsically though, only in words. At times is hard being the youngest in the family. When you see your brother doing so well in life and people start comparing you with him, it's way stressful. But it also got me to think how does he feel? Being the eldest is not easy either. He has to be more responsible and has to set pars for the younger to follow. For me I think being the eldest would be hard. Anyway, I really thank God that He had helped us through bad times and through good times. Though we may have our ups and downs, but we journey life together as one. Don't always complain about your family, you have only one family so live to love them. Everyone has their own imperfections but together you can help each other. Stop thinking about the 'What if' and start thinking about 'How to'. Live your life to the fullest. Your family is the greatest gift that God has given to you...

My Brother's Competition cum Exhibition

Well my brother came to KL for his competition cum exhibition. He came to exhibit his product of his research. His research is about recycling thrown tiles into interlocking blocks. He called it EnviroBLOCK. I'm not sure how the process works but I know it's complicated. Haha... anyway, I'm really proud of my brother for he got Silver prize. But to me he already won gold. At least his product is helping us to save the environment and to prevent global warming from getting worse. I'm so glad to meet up with him. I'll just continue to pray for him as he ventures into the working life soon. May God be with him every step of the way...

A Weekend Holiday

As I really have nothing to do, I decided to go on a trip last weekend. I went to Genting Highlands with my friends and had a blast. We went on Friday morning by bus and reaching at Genting itself in the afternoon. We checked in to put in our bags and off to the theme park. We played everything and until the theme park closes. Then it was dinner and off to play the indoor theme park. We played indoor until 12am and off to supper. Then after that we went night sight-seeing and took loads of pictures throughout the day. Then we went back to the room around 2am and started playing cards until 3.30am. Then we bathe and went to sleep. The next day another friend and I went for the buffet breakfast. Since we had 7 of us who are there and only 2 could go, we had to sneak out some food. I really felt weird like I was a mother bird finding food to feed the chicks. Haha... We wrapped food and stuffed it into my bag and brought it up to the room. Everyone had breakfast and we went to Ripley's. I think this is my 7th time going in. Do I still want to go in again. Maybe not for the time being until they add more stuffs. But I went along cause most didn't go in before. After that we checked out and went back to Kajang. Well at least all of them did except me. I went to KL Central. I was going to KLCC to meet up with my brother. My brother is here in KL for an exhibition cum competition. I was so happy to meet him. He took me to the hotel and we rested. He was going for a dinner later and I had to eat on my own. I didn't mind. I had something quick and got back to the room to rest. When he came back we talked and watched movies until it was time to sleep. The next day when he went for the exhibition, I went to PetroScience in KLCC. It was really worth it. I have always wanted to go for it and I finally got the chance. I really enjoyed myself. I spent in there for more than 3 hours. Then I went for lunch and helped my brother to pack up. Next, I took the train back to Kajang. Suddenly when I reach KL Central again there was an announcement saying that the KTM was out-of-order. I prayed hard and thank God that it was down for 10 minutes. Then I came back to the room and fell asleep. I was really tired. I'm really happy that I had a good weekend. Thank you Lord...but the thing is I'm broke...Haha...

3rd Semester

How nice to have holidays finally after the whole three weeks of exams. But the sad part is that I had to take 3rd semester which starts like 4 days after my exams. Anyway, I did go back home to run some errands and caught up with some friends. On the 11th of May, I'm back in uni again. Back to the shifting of things and the cleaning of a new room. This time I'll be staying in the seniors block which is like 1 person to 1 room. So I kind of like it. I have my own private place. Haha... anyway the bad part of the room is that it's so hot in the evening and at night due to the fact that my room faces the evening sun. So the heat is trapped in my room and it's not well-ventalated. Seeing my timetable so far, I have classes everyday except on Thursdays and all my classes are in the mornings. I have no labs and yet to have assignments so I'm kind of free. It's a good thing though, it means I can spend more time with God. I hope no distractions. I really want a closer relationship with Him...

Of Exams and Movies!!

After 3 weeks of exams, today is finally my last paper. I should be studying but I've no mood to study already. Instead, here am I blogging about it. Haha...not a good thing to do. Maybe I've no mood because today's my last paper. Besides that, I'll be going back home today also. I really can't wait. Although I just went back two weeks ago, if I don't go back now, I've no other time already. Unfortunately, I'm compulsory to take third semester for my course requires it. Well, so I'll be back to uni life in less than a week. Anyway, for this last paper I'm really not sure why I've no mood. Just last weekend, I went to watch 2 movies. X-Men Origins : Wolverine and also Friday the 13th. Personally, both shows are very good. I really liked both of them. There are still many movies which I want to watch but no time and no money. Haha... After today, I realised I finished 1 year of studies already. Imagine that, how time flies so fast. Thank God for seeing me through this whole year. I continue to pray that God will help me throughout my studies here in uni. Thank God for His abundance blessings and for giving great friends. I hope that all of you would be grateful for what He has done for you so far. Always be thankful and never complain. Then you'll see how wonderful is He.

X-camp 2009

On the 10-12 of April, I went for my church camp in Kajang. It was really an awesome camp. I felt rejuvenated and refreshed but most importantly a lot of doubted questions has been answered. We had the camp in Nur Lembah Pangsun Eco Resort in Semenyih. It was really a nice place. The activities was fun. We had wall climbing, flying fox, jungle trekking to a waterfall and rafting. The speaker of the camp was Pastor Daniel Ross. He was really awesome. Very spirit-filled and really on fire for God. He is only 29 years-old and he has travelled around the world preaching the gospel. I had lots of fun playing but most importantly lots of fun receiving the word of God. Some doubted questions of mine has been answered by God in this camp. The camp theme was hearing the voice of God. Pastor Daniel taught us how to listen and in what ways God can speak to us. It was really pratical ways and it was useful. In the midst of this hoo-haa, I injured myself on the rafting and hurt my feet. For the next two days i had to limped all over. But overall, I enjoyed myself....

Internet Connection Breakdown

Yup it's been a long time since I blogged. What to do...very bad internet connection in uni. Not that stable and the worst part is we still have to pay the wireless fees whether we use it or not. This whole month has been a busy month eventhough it's the last month of my second semester. Rushing to finish 2 assignments which lecturers gave very last minute. The assignment was supposed to be given one month before exams but instead they gave only a two weeks before exam. One of those week was my study break. Since I decided to go back to Ipoh during my study break I had to finish the assignments in one week. Thank God for His grace and mercy for giving me good teammates and good friends to help me. The first assignment was the worst. Imagine we had to design a circuit for a traffic light system in a cross-junction. It really was not easy for me since I'm going to study civil which will use less electric knowledge but anyhow after sleepless nights I managed to finish. The other assignment was quite easy for it was just calculations on thermodynamics. But that whole week made me realise how wonderful and awesome God can be. He helped me through it all. Thank you Lord!!!
