Mooncake Festival

Just had a great dinner party with my house mates a few friends. We just celebrated mooncake festival. We had pasta, chips and salsa, mash potatoes, longan, tong yuin, watermelons and of course mooncake. Although our dinner menu seems to be more western than oriental but who cares. The tong yuin we filled it up with chocolate and peanut butter spread. It was really nice. The mash potatoes were awesome. It had potatoes with ham and cheese crust...yum...My house mate is a really good cook. He even made the salsa with mangoes, cucumber and tomatoes. It was really good. Everyone enjoyed the food and the fellowship was great. Good time to relax for a while for I have two exams tomorrow. One in the morning and one at night. The morning exam I'm most afraid of because I really not sure what is coming out and although it's open book I didn't even buy the book...it was too expensive...Anyway, i'm just going to lean on God and trust Him...
Good friends, Great taste

Dreams and Sleepless Night

Well holidays are over and back to hectic life. The holidays have been good. I had a great time with my family and friends. Most of all, God spoke to me about the same thing within these past two weeks and yet I still feel I never practice it. Been having a lot of strange dreams. Some are really good and some are neither good nor bad. I really hope that the good dreams do come true. For example, my 13 year-old car will be miraculously be repaired and I don't have to send it to the mechanic. I'm really clinging to God's promise and I proclaim that the dream will come true. I had a dream that I was driving my car and nothing seems to be wrong with it. Amen!!! Anyhow, my first day back to uni and I can't sleep. Is it because of all the chinese tea I drank during dinner or maybe there's a fear within me that's keeping me up. I also don't know what I'm scared of. Anyway, this coming week is going to be one hectic week but I know God will give me strength and peace needed to go through with it. Still...why can't I sleep....

Worship God 2010

Just got back from an awesome worship concert. It was led by True Worshippers, a very famous Christian Indonesian band. The Worship God 2010 is actually a 3 days conference but I only went for the night concert. Tomorrow night is the second night concert which will be led by GMB (another Indonesian band) but I can't go. Anyway, I was so happy that I went tonight. God really spoke to me. I had been feeling lost these few days. Trying to figure out whether is God still listening to me or am I still being a good child of His. Tonight's worship He really spoke to me not only through the songs but also spoke to me with His own words. I really thank God for answering prayers. The thing that really spoke to me the most was that He loves me and everybody so much. God truly love us regardless of what we've done or where we've been. He always picks us up when we fall down and He will always shelter us through the storm. God is always there. Whenever we feel that we've done something wrong, God will still love us. Thank you Lord for your unconditional love to me. Here is one of the songs that really spoke to me tonight...


Verse 1:
It doesn't matter where I run, You're there for me
It doesn't matter what I've done Your love's for me
You wipe away the tears, You lift me when I fall
My life is safe by the mercy of Your grace

Verse 2:
It doesn't matter where I go, You walk with me
It doesn't matter when I fall, You cover me
You wipe away the tears, You lift me when I fall
My life is safe by the mercy of Your grace

You are my Father, Provider
You're my Deliverer
Your mercies embrace me, surround me
Through Your everlasting love
Father I worship You
Father I worship You

And Your love is for me
And Your love is for me
And Your love is forever

Selamat Hari Raya

This year Raya I celebrated with my family and my uncle and aunt in Rasa. First time holidays, I'm not going back to Ipoh...sad eh...but really had a good time with my family. They came down to my bro's place. My aunt made chicken curry and rendang with pulut...it was super nice...For those who do not know me...my family is quite a 1 Malaysia. I get to celebrate Chinese New Year, Hari Raya and Deepavali(my uncle married a Malay and my another aunt married an Indian). Therefore I get to savour all the different traditional food...hehe...My parents were down here for the weekend and I'll stay here until after holidays...Really miss my hometown though but I really enjoyed the Raya holidays here. Got to eat a lot of great food...

A Day Out

Had a great day yesterday. Went out from afternoon to late night. I had a great time watching movie, hanging out with friends and also singing karaoke with my bro and friends. It was quite a tiring day but it was just to relax and enjoy everyone's company. Step Up 3 was super super good (highly recommended if you like dancing shows). The story line wasn't that great but the dance moves were super awesome. I hope to learn the dances in the movie (won't be easy...no background in break dancing or any dance at all...hehe...) Karaoke session was good but tiring. We sang for 6 hours and it was just the 5 of us. It was expensive though because it was night session and they offered free buffet dinner (the food was actually very good), so we ate our money's worth. We really ate and sang our hearts out. We really let go of everything and just had fun (singing and dancing, jumping and screaming...haha...). Now I'm back in my bro's house in Rasa. Can't wait to see my family tomorrow as they will be coming here as well. We will surely have a lovely holiday...

Letters to God

Well just watched a movie called 'Letters to God' with my house mate. It was really nice and touching. The movie was about a young cancer boy who touched many people lives. It's based on a true story. I guess I learned to keep on hoping and believe that God does answers prayers. We just have to put our faith on Him. Actually I learned a lot from this movie and crazy enough I want to start to write letters to God. I guess I should start back my journaling....hmmm....anyway awesome movie. Highly recommended.


I went to Singapore with my mom and bro during the recent Merdeka Holidays. My bro had planned this trip since last year. It was really nice and for my mom it was a first time since 20 years ago. So for her it was really new. My bro and I took her everywhere, from Orchard Road to East Coast Road, from Sentosa Island to Suntec City. We tried every mode of transportation, from flying to trains to bus to walking. We really walked a lot and seen a lot of things. In short it was a good holiday break for all 3 of us. Universal Studio was really nice too, we spent one whole day there and the rides were awesome. We had really good food too, first time I ate their Hokkien Mee. So different from back home in Malaysia. We also got to attend New Creation Church pastored by Pst Joseph Prince. Well we went for my mom wanted to go and so happen Darlene Zschech came to worship lead. Man it was awesome and God spoke to me too. It did open my mind to think differently for something. All in all it was an awesome holidays though at times we got lost...haha...Now we are dreaming and planning big. We are hoping to go for a UK and Europe Holiday together as a family by the time I graduate. Will have to start praying now (not to forget to start saving money)

Venice (Italy)
Well this was my last stop of my Europe trip. I think I spent too long here for there was practically nothing to do here. All you see is water and tiny bridges, gondalas and buildings on water. I guess for a while you kind off get bored with the surroundings. The plus side was the food. The food is damn good and cheap whether you convert it or not. I got to see a play that tells about the history of Venice. It was very interesting. But I really feel that 3 days here will be too boring...the weather is so hot unlike the other European countries.

Interlaken (Switzerland)
Interlaken is a very nice place to relax. It has beautiful mountains surrounding a very crystal clear blue lake. From here you should know that the sceneries will be beautiful and indeed it was. I did go up to the Alps and finally touch snow for the first time (I think it's snow...looks like shave ice to me). The Alps was super cold though, but I really enjoyed it. In short, Interlaken is a nice place to relax but if you want to try to do extreme activities like bungee jumping, sky diving and many more....this is the place.

Paris (France)
Paris the city of love...or so as they say...I think it's just okay. Quite a lovely place to walk around and enjoy the lovely weather. The famous Lourve Museum was super huge and nice. At least I got to see the famous Mona Lisa painting although it was from far. Also got to see the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame plus a few other famous buildings (which I forgot the name by now...haha...) The best part of Paris for me was of course going to Paris Disneyland. It has really been a dream come true although I prefer to go to the US one but at least is better than nothing. Food especially cheese here is truly awesome.
