This just came in!!!!!

Dear ALL,

Thank you for your interest in the upcoming mission trips. Your application is recorded. We will contact you for more details as the date draws nearer.


I'm going!


Which should I choose?

I'm still thinking what kind of fast should I do from Jun 1-21st...

Needles Rain

I was walking home from the MRT station just now. The ground was kinda wet but no matter how hard I strained my eyes, it didn't seem like it was raining.

At least not until I took my 1st step out into the open.

I was shocked. The rain was in fact really quite heavy though the droplets were so so tiny like thousands of needles falling on me. This time as I stared up into the sky, I saw the millions of tiny droplets falling all around. I was really getting quite wet as I walked from road to road until I reached another HDB block.

As I tried to strain my eyes to look at the rain from the shelter, once again I could see nothing. It looked absolutely clear. Really strange...

But life's like that sometimes isn't it? Like while we're out there walking, God sends His little blesses all over us. The blessings may not be big or significant, though they may be really small like needles at times but there are millions of them all over us. So although we might not see it with our eyes, as we continue our walk, once again we feel it all over us.

Moral of the story?
Spiritual: See God move not with our eyes but with our heart feel Him.
Natural: Dun think that just because you cannot see the rain, then it's not raining. Always carry an umbrella.

Ok fine, perhaps Sab is thinking too much again. So much insight from some little rain... Unbelievable...

What are your Priorities?

I received this from 1 of my dear members. Strangely it's quite accurate. But to me it's in a sense logic, as to what order I choose. Try it:

Five things are happening in your house at the same time. In which sequence would you solve them?

1. The telephone is ringing!
2. The baby is crying!
3. Someone's knocking or calling you from the front door!
4. You hung the clothes out to dry and it is beginning to rain!
5. You left the tap on in the kitchen and the water is already overflowing!

In which sequence would you solve these problems? Write down the sequence and check out my comments as to how your decisions were made.

Hati Hamba (Heart of a Servant) - 2

I just knew that someone, somewhere, somehow would have this online and ready for me and so I copied this from someone's blog!


An awesome song... May I have a heart that's always willing to go the extra mile for You...

我 永 远 不 会 忘 记
主 祢 那 丰 富 恩 典
如 今 我 在 天 父 怀 中
因 为 祢 舍 下 自 己

祢 不 看 我 的 过 去
只 是 完 全 接 纳 我
主 祢 的 爱 何 等 伟 大
我 的 心 完 全 融 化

我 亲 爱 救 主
我 心 何 等 感 谢
祢 单 单 在 意
我 这 爱 祢 的 心
我 愿 一 生
追 求 跟 随 我 主
谦 卑 为 祢 服 事 这 世 界

我 亲 爱 救 主
我 要 一 生 敬 拜
在 我 生 命 中
祢 是 唯 一 的 爱
毫 无 保 留 我 愿 献 上 所 有
何 等 渴 慕 能 为 祢 而 活
耶 稣 我 主
Hati Hamba - Sari Simorangkir

I've finally done it!!!


I finally change my skin!!!!!!!

After much struggle and a near heart attack when I lost all the codes from my previous blog, I finally managed to change the skin!

*3 cheers for Sab*

The words are much smaller here though. I guess it's mainly to discourage you from staying here too long reading my posts and past posts and past past posts. :)

I read so much on HTML and XML within these passed 2 days, but I still dun quite get it. Computer language is outright weird la. They prompt errors even when there isn't any lo.

So proud of myself.

So maybe, just maybe... I will make this public now that it's nice and ~STYLE~

Accuracy of Death

Caught this show with a few of my dear mbrs after PM today. Though it has a horror-film kind of title, it's not a horror movie (kinda like Death Note).

Anyway even if it were a horror movie, I wouldn't miss it for anything else in the world cos Takeshi Kaneshiro acts in it! *woohoo*

He's so cute la!!!!! And in the show, he had several looks - the original Grim Reaper look (the best to me AFTER he trims a little off), the slightly nerdy-blur look, the stylo informant look and finally the cute boyish look.

But it's not just about having him as eye-candy, the film has a rather interesting storyline. I copied some details from this website below, but I would recommend you to catch it if you haven't. :)

Director: Masaya Kekehi

Cast: Takeshi Kaneshiro , Manami Konishi, Sumiko Fuji, Ken Mitsuishi, Takuya Ishida, Jun Murakami, Erika Okuda, Mitsuru Fukikoshi

RunTime: 1 hr 55 mins

GVRating: PG

Adapted from the bestselling novel by Kotaro Isaka “The Accuracy of Death”. Chiba (Takeshi Kaneshiro) appears seven days before a person dies an unexpected death. His job is to observe the person for seven days, and then decide either to ‘execute’ or ‘pass over’. Getting his work quickly out of the way, he goes to the listening booth of a CD shop and indulges in his favorite pastime, listening to ‘humanity’s greatest invention’: music.
He is...a Grim Reaper. Today, again, in the rain, he waits. His subject, her death due in seven days, is Kazue Fujiki (Manami Konishi), 27. She works for a manufacturing company, in the complaints department. Exhausted after her day, she emerges from her office. It’s time for the Reaper to go to work.

Movie Review:
Heartthrob Takeshi Kaneshiro can do no wrong. The Chinese Japanese actor is perfect. This man has got fans everywhere. With his chiseled good looks and his beautiful eyes, he can smear mud all over his pretty face as a warrior in The Warlords (2007), sing love songs and look forlorn as a heartbroken actor in Perhaps Love (2005), or wear expensive shades as a suave gunman in Returner (2002) – he makes these movies good. So we are pretty sure that other than his loyal fans, the handsome actor’s latest Japanese movie will go down well with everyone else. Besides, it’s got a decent storyline too.

Masaya Kakei directs Kaneshiro in a movie adaptation of Kotaro Isaka’s novel, where the actor plays a Grim Reaper (the best looking one ever, we’d say) who appears seven days before someone who is about to die an unexpected death. He will spend this week with them before deciding whether they will die or not. If the messenger of death really looked this good, we are predicting girls wouldn’t mind dying so much. {Sab:kinda true... hahha}

The 115-minute movie is made up of three interconnected stories which protagonists are targets of the attractive Grim Reaper. There’s a meek girl whose job is to receive complaint calls, a crime committing mafia leader who has a faithful follower and an old hairdresser who lives alone in the countryside.

Being a Japanese production, you can expect everything to be beautifully visualized on screen. The cinematography by Takahide Shibanushi showcases the melancholic showers, the gritty mafia showdowns and the withering sunflowers to great effect. These compliment the mood of the romance fantasy movie and will please viewers with a sense of aesthetics greatly. Watch out also for some simple but effective computer generated effects which will make you suspend all beliefs and immerse yourself in the beautiful other world.

With the pretty images in place, the next thing that works well in this movie is its well articulated themes about life. What defines happiness? What does it take to give up on happiness? What makes one faithful in what he believes in? What makes one’s life fulfilling and complete at the end of the day? Sure, these are romanticized notions that some cynics may consider a waste of constructive time, but we’d think that these are the finer details of life which busy urbanites like us should slow down and take note of. These three tales bring together these messages and make you look at the big picture of things in a lyrical manner.

Manami Konishi (Udon) and Sumiko Fuji (Hula Girls) comfortably play their roles of the Grim Reaper’s targets. Konishi is perfect for the docile and submissive girl who gets a new outlook of life when the Grim Reaper pays her a visit. The gorgeous theme song “Sunny Day” performed by the starlet will be on repeat mode on your player. Fuji’s steady performance as the old hairdresser with a secret is one you will not forget easily.

And of course, Kaneshiro is again perfectly cast. Even when the charming actor goes into an unnecessarily silly mode, you forgive him because you know he can carry it off very nicely. The actor can absolutely do no wrong.

Service PM - 250508

today's prayer meeting was amazing...

although i've always loved going for prayer meetings (ok maybe not ALL the time) but i always know that it is time well spent. especially when i'm tired, attending prayer meetings always seem to do wonders to counter that.

seeing pst M lead prayer meeting reminded me so much of the times i attended mass bs in hollywood. all the way from CL to LF to VL. i've always enjoyed every single lesson and would be disappointed if for some reasons he could not take the lesson and someone else had to replace him (ooppss). even though i've uni exams the following day, i would still set aside time to attend it especially when i know he'll be the one taking the lesson. hearing his oh-so-familiar Peking duck example also brings me back to my bible school days where every lesson with him is tiring for everyone, especially in the mouth and stomach area - cos we would laugh from beginning till end.

BUT i think the most amazing thing abt pst M is not his ability to make people laugh, but definitely his gift that allows him to be able to connect with people, especially those perhaps not so "old" spiritually. the so-called hard-to-achieve and understand spiritual things would be explained so simply by him, that those spiritually younger would believe that they can do it as well.

so i always know that whenever he is around, it would be a great time where it's not just about having an interesting lesson BUT also one that is power-packed with the presence of God.

today was no exception. although we didn't have the luxury of time like an OPM to really spend a lot of time to worship and wait on God, God came in a great way just like in an OPM. as we were there praying, i really felt that the prayers were spirit-led (except for a particular part where i felt that someone was kinda distracted?). and towards the end, everyone that came to pray had an encounter with Him. at least i know i had.

the thing that i wrote down, will be kept so dear to me. it will be well-prayed thru, till it comes to pass.

God grant me the strength when i grow weary. always remind me of my encounter today that when i feel frustrated with situations and people, let me see them thru Your eyes. let Your love flood my life so that it will overflow to those that need Your love...

so presenting to you my fave pst.... Pst M!!!! (but of course he is ranked AFTER Pst K, Pst T and our dearest Pst Z) ;P

Isn't it Amazing...

Enjoy the new song by Olivia Newton John and Sun! :)

I was watching TV this morning and I heard a chinese poem. It's a poem written by someone especially for all children. Hmm ok. I seemed to have misrepresented it. Not that it is written for little children, but more for like young adults / adults with old parents. I didnt quite catch the show from the beginning but from the sniplets that I saw, it seemed to be debating about whether it is right for parents to have the mentality that having children is to ensure that someone will take care of them when they grow old.


I found the poem really touching and so appropriate. Perhaps when I have the time I should try searching for it online to see if i can find it for you all.

Some portions that really touched my heart was when it talked about simple things that old people "struggle" with.

Like how some old people are unable to or have "forgotten" how to tie their shoe laces. It then mentions how these "old people" were the very ones that taught us as little children to tie our laces and have tied them for us a million times while we were young.

Or how old people need help to walk as they grow frail. It follows to remind us not to abandon them but to hold their hands and walk with them cos these "old people" were the very ones that taught us as little children how to walk and have helped us up a million times while we were young whenever we fell.

Or (this is something that I believe most of us struggle with, even myself) how old people tend to keep repeating themselves - and a common term used by all is "nagging". It then mentions how these "old people" were the very ones that read to us bedtime stories as we were little children until we fell asleep. How we would keep bugging them to repeat the same stories over and over again. Yet now many times we dun even allow them to finish their sentences cos we've heard it a million times.

God, remind me to always have patience with these "old people", especially then they are my very own parents.

Hati Hamba (Heart of a Servant)

Initially I really wanted to type out the whole song here word by word. But I figured that I will go crazy searching for each and every single character to copy and paste here. So I've decided to wait till someone from somewhere to somehow email it to me and then I will just copy the whole song and paste it here. =)

What an awesome song.

Music just has this amazing ability to bring to life the meaning of words.

I've yet to type the post that I wanted to write about since Tues. Ok actually I wanted to write about it since some time back. But the emotions that accompany the reflections just gets stronger as time goes by. Commented about it at Gerry's site, read various "versions" of it here and there from various ones yet I haven't gotten down to writing my own. Guess we're all in the same flow as we pray more, read the Word more, listen to various sermons and just make simple observations in our present life.

A portion of it can be summarized by 2 words: Holy Dissatisfaction.

Dear ones out there, dun let the seemingly "good" replace the BEST.

Nice Skin - so so hard...

I just realised that it's just SO difficult to find a nice blog skin.

They're all either too complicated, too simple, too pink, too dark (in colour or in content), too negative or simply just not me.

I think for now I will just focus and concentrate on writing all the things that I wanted to write. And leave choosing a Skin till another time.

Or is there someone out there who knows how to modify Skins to something that I like? =)

10 things you never knew about Sab

This was something that came to my mind while I was walking home so it's really quite random...

1. Sab has never had an official "bed". (I've been sleeping on the floor on a mattress for as far as I can ever remember)

2. The 1st time Sab has ever laid hands to pray for an inanimate object... was the toilet bowl. (My fave hair brush fell in accidentally. I was sooooo afraid that it would choke the pipes so I prayed for my toilet bowl)

3. The highest floor that Sab has ever stayed at was on the 31st storey. (My fave place was actually sitting on the window ledge, of course there were window grills. Looking down on the people and cars below is quite therapeutic - they are smaller than toys.)

4. Sab started to learn how to play a musical instrument at the age of 3.

5. There was only once that Sab vomited in public. And all her friends disappeared within 3 seconds. (So much rejection for a 7yr old to bear rite)

6. The 1st house that Sab ever stayed in was big enough for her to practise her NAFA shuttle run.

7. Sab has ever tried to write her own book and it was titled "The Terrifying Murder". (I only managed to write the 1st paragraph and designed a nice cover for it. It's too terrifying for a 12 yr old to write I guess. hahaha)

8. The best time for Sab to pray is actually in the afternoon at about 3-4pm. (Maybe that's why I dun exactly mind having CGM on Sat afternoon)

9. There was once she mistook her brother to be some psychopath trying to "attack" her while she was at home. (He kept pressing the doorbell until it went crazily off-tune and so her mum called the security guard up to "catch"him and then Sab realised that the psychopath was actually her brother)

10. Sab has ever tried to bring someone that dialed her number wrongly to church. (But she failed cos that person refused to meet her in church and she refused to meet him anywhere else. hahaha)

I saw something on sat during cgm that really touched me.

Many times it's not about doing what others tell you to but wanting and doing it your own initiative that makes it all the more genuine and rare.

*God may I always have a heart that longs for You*

A few of the dear ones that celebrated my birthday.

More details on that when I'm in the mood to write about that. :)

The Cellar Club

If you're looking for a really cool place to chill out, this is a great one. Ok the band might not be that great for Fri & Sat but other than that, the place is a picture or serenity. They have Indoors and Outdoors sitting and the really cool ones are the Outdoors actually. Supposedly they have 2 bands there as well though when I went there on Fri, there was only 1 indoor. The waitresses are really funny. One dear gal tripped over the sofa when she brought us to our seats while another one thought I laughed cos I caught her rolling her eyes at her boss and came over to explain. So friendly ya? Hahahaa...

But a word of caution. Never. Never. Order this drink called "High on Grass". Unless you like to drink and chew grass. Horrid. Here's what it looks like in the "dark":

They literally put grass and blend it into the drink. Plus they stick a few of them at the top of the drink.

Treat from my parents

This was what my bro & I were treated to for our birthdays:

What I saw at Orchard MRT

So scary... Staying in the tunnel for 5mins might make you deaf!

Gonna Crash

I'm feeling the consequences of working late again. Haven't exactly had this feeling for a long long time. Thought I had seen the last of it but I guess I'm wrong.

When I 1st joined, I literally studied the stuff the previous guy left behind. I still remember telling my friends that he only claims meal & transport allowances like 3-7 days a month (read: he only needed to work beyond 8 or 9pm 3-7 days a month). I was seriously exuberant. And to be fair, I did enjoy a period of such myself too. Until my dear friend left... :(

Not only did I lose a good pal at work (she's still working near me now but we hardly meet), I inherited her work. Then the nightmare begins. With the old-new guy treating here as a transition from work to leisure, the baggage stays...

I think I'm getting too old for this. Anyone out there with any recommendations on a strictly 9-5 job with acceptable pay? Acceptable means pay that rises at the same rate as inflation and costs of living. Preferably it rises fast-ER than the 2. Hahaa... Alrite, I think I'm starting to dream here now.

Know what I really wanna do now? No prizes for guessing.



Was not meant to be a trick question.

Plus during lunch time today I decided to spend some time walking. And hence I walked all the way to Marina Square. Walking is good. Clears my mind. Should find time to do that more often. My mind's still bogged down with something. I just can't seem to shake it away and I dun understand why. :(

Guess I need my "vast space" time again.

My greatest and only consolation. God answers my prayers. In so many ways, God has shown Himself to be faithful and real to me. And so the Word of God is true once again. God's strength is made perfect in my weakness. When I lean on Him, things will fall into place.

A miracle happened 3 weeks ago. May it never stop. As my prayer never ceases, God let Your miracle never cease also.

That vision.

That dream.

I will not let You go.

Till it comes to pass.

Even after it comes to pass.

I will still NOT let You go. :)

Guess what's the 2nd thing that I wanna do?

Find a place with nice ambience and a live band playing soothing music. I miss that.

YZ/Cin, when's our chill-out session again???????

Ok Sab officially needs her sleep now. Tmr the routine resumes, starting with her God time at 630am. *yeah* :))))))

To end off, here's a picture of me and the bday cake that my dears gave me on my bday (please take a close look at the "candle"):

Strangely this photo doesn't exactly look like me, dun you think so? Hmmm.... From a 5mp camera.

I've finally finished the Mgt Pack!!!!

Now on to:
- Interco bal
- Receipts
- Adjmt
- SEA report

Which by then I suspect is almost month end AGAIN... :(

Feeling quite excited at this moment.

My trip in Jul might really take flight(pun intended)! :)

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

DHS Official Website

I chanced upon DHS' official MOE website and found to my utmost surprise this:

I'm sure all Dunmanians would know him. Classic. But so strange that it's HIM on the loading page of the school's official website! Shouldn't it be the principal or something, why our DISCIPLINE MASTER? Supposedly he's retired right? So amazing... He REALLY is the official mascot erhm I meant icon for the school. With his signature mole on the chin with a single strand of hair sticking out. ;P

He's exactly how I remember him from more than 10yrs ago. And this was also how he looked like when I saw him in China Square some time back!

But this picture is really quite something cos it REALLY represents the array of students that we have, ever since my time!

1) Sporty (gal on the left bottom)

2) Nerdy (little boy behind her)

3) Intellectual (boy behind the little boy)

4) Foreigner (gal on the right hind side of Mr Kiw)

5) Prefect (gal on right center)

6) Playful (boy on bottom left)

Oh ya!! There's 1 category missing from the photo from my time: the ah lians / ah bengs.

But do they still exist in this present era?


But whatever category they belong to while they were at that age, most of them are successful people now. Just like yours truly... Hahaha...

Nah, I'm really talking about my friends actually. Even the ex-lians are now rich bankers. Playfuls (they still are now) are big time engineers / entrepreneurs, some even rich enough to take no pay leave to tour UK n Europe for months. Prefects & Intellectuals are of course big time lawyers / doctors now...

So dun see these people like that in this photo now k. 10 yrs later, you might just end up in their office for consultation of some sort.



Often the most underestimated activity in our Christian walk but seeing how other great men of God view it, perhaps our perception of it should also change?

"Prayer does not change the purpose of God. But prayer does change the action of God." – Chuck Smith

"Satan does not care how many people read about prayer if only he can keep them from praying." – Paul E. Billheimer

"Prayer is the real work, Evangelism is just the mopping up."

"Satan trembles when he sees the weakest Christian on his knees." – William Cowper

"Prayer is not overcoming God's reluctance, but laying hold of His willingness." – Martin Luther

"The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but he trembles when we pray." – Samuel Chadwick

"One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller's funeral the last one was saved."

"I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach." – Charles H. Spurgeon

"We have to pray with our eyes on God, not on the difficulties." – Oswald Chambers

"Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian." – Andrew Murray

"Four things let us ever keep in mind: God hears prayer, God heeds prayer, God answers prayer, and God delivers by prayer." – E.M. Bounds

"Prayer is my chief work, and it is by means of it that I carry on the rest." – Thomas Hooker

"The true church lives and moves and has its being in prayer." – Leonard Ravenhill

"Prayer wonderfully clears the vision; steadies the nerves; defines duty; stiffens the purpose; sweetens and strengthens the spirit." S.D. Gordon

"The secret of all failure is our failure in secret prayer."

"If the Christian does not allow prayer to drive sin out of his life, sin will drive prayer out of his life. Like light and darkness, the two cannot dwell together." – M.E. Andross

"If a man can pray he can do anything. He who knows how to overcome with God in prayer has Heaven and earth at his disposal." – Charles H. Spurgeon

"Prayer is not learned in a classroom but in the closet." – E.M. Bounds

"Prayer is weakness leaning on omnipotence." – W.S. Bowd

"Prayer can never be in excess." – Charles H. Spurgeon

"We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results." – R.A. Torrey

"Prayer is not monologue, but dialogue. God's voice in response to mine is its most essential part." – Andrew Murray

"Our prayers lay the track down which God's power can come. Like a mighty locomotive, his power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails." – Watchman Nee

"The main lesson about prayer is just this: Do it! Do it! Do it! You want to be taught to pray. My answer is pray and never faint, and then you shall never fail…" – John Laidlaw

"A man who is intimate with God will never be intimidated by men." – Leonard Ravenhill

"Prayer is the secret of power." – Evan Roberts

"Ten minutes spent in the presence of Christ every day, aye, two minutes, will make the whole day different." – Henry Drummond

"He who runs from God in the morning will scarcely find Him the rest of the day." – John Bunyan

"Prayer is the first thing, the second thing, the third thing necessary to a minister. Pray, then my dear brother; pray, pray, pray." – Edward Payson

an email was received stating that the confirmation was out by THB 2cents.

C saw the email and didn't do anything about it cos the amount was too small.

D saw the email and went to amend the confirmation.

D gave C the confirmation to check. C found a mistake in the confirmation. C approached D to amend it again. D was busy, mentioned that it's so insignificant and hence it was given to a little gal to amend.

the confirmation was given back to C and C passed to S to sign.

S refused to waste time to sign and asked why it was amended since the amount was insignificant. D at this time walked passed and said, "ya, that's what I told C also."

does it seem like C was the one who told D to amend the confirmation?

if say i was the second last to leave office at 930pm.

someone put something on my in-tray at 10 plus pm.

does it still count that she gave me on that working day?


Tuesday, May 6, 2008


Sab has been MIA from here cos she is really bogged down with work...

She wanted to write something interesting yesterday but somehow this place just simply cannot detect the picture that she wanted to load.

Let's see if she has better "luck" doing it from home IF she accesses this from home...

Pst Z's birthday celebration

Finally!!! Someone posted the photos somewhere for me to save and keep a copy of it! :)

And so the story begins...

A few of us (a few is quite an understatement) gathered at SingPost on a Sat night at 9pm. Waited for others to joined in our "gang" before we made our way to THE place. So we walked from SingPost to Old Hollywood and waited at the blocks nearby below cos we received news that Pst was delayed in reaching home as he was still talking to Pst T and MH. We were really like some illegal gathering and so we split ourselves to be under 2 blocks instead of just 1. The "procession" there was long and many. Kinda reminded me of the Israelites moving to their promised land.

While we were there, the semi-pro photographer R decided to take out his stuff and snap us with his tripod once again. Which btw where are the photos?? Why is he keeping it all on his desktop?? *hahaha*

So we waited at that place till 11plus, almost finishing all the food that was supposed to be for the celebration later. Actually there was not much to begin with plus we had some vv hungry people like E with us. Scary. *hahaha* Once we received the "green light", once again the Israelites set off to give their beloved Pst a surprised. Hoping and praying REALLY hard that for once it will be a success.

We moved to the lobby and waited once more. A photo of the wait:

We sent all the "big shots" and brothers up 1st. Cos Pst somehow prefers to be in the company of more brothers and hence this photo showed all the rest (which included yours truly - if you can spot me).

We waited and ambushed and finally we succeed!!! :)

We have finally managed to give Pst a surprise after all these years... * hahaha*

Taking photos thereafter was really hard. We just could not find a way to squeeze ALL of us inside the frame. Oh I haven't told you how many of us were there right? Take a look at the below and try counting in it the various shots:

So have you counted? =)
We took the above at some place that's like a function room in his condo. Finally there's aircon!!!
Left that place after 12mn and reaching home close to 1am cos I walked home from some LRT station...
A final word:

Thursday, May 1, 2008

Thank you dears!

First and foremost I wanna thank all my dear ones that spent time with me on my birthday yesterday. Thank you each and everyone!! Beyond all the great gifts that I received, one thing I appreciate the most is when people take time off to spend with me. Guess from this all should know what is my primary love language? :)

*love ya all loads*

Special thanks to the following (in no particular order):
- Pst Z: for agreeing to meet me for lunch though it was eventaully postponed. if u ever happen to read this, i'm really ok with it, lai re fang chang ma... :) for being my spiritual father and though there are almost 100 of us cgls in the whole zone, u'll never fail to sms me every yr on my bday! *so so touched*

- Gerry: for being the 1st to call me though u were still having ZM at 12mn. youth cgls are indeed the most hardworking lot... :)

- Cin: for being the 2nd to call me after mn though our conversation was cut short by ur hp. guess ur battery really tried its best to sustain but... :)

White & bling bling, nice... :) i know it must have cost u all a lot, really really thank you for the sacrifice... with special special thanks to JD for making the really beautiful card. with all the little squares, i can only imagine how much time u spent to painstakingly paste all 365(!!!!!) of them. not to mention printing our photos, cutting each of the document holders, etc... thanks for all the effort especially when u're having ur exams! (so please please study hard now k) i appreciate every moment u spent on making it... special thanks also to Qi and WY for choosing the great gift! so which of u heard from God about it? :) thank you for organising everything, informing and inviting all the people (to "make" them spend time with me so that I can feel loved. hahaha...) so that the day would be special n memorable for me. thanks for being my Peter/James/John (tog with MY)... :)

- those that are still trying to date me to celebrate my bday for me. we will find a time, i'm sure... thanks for the effort, i really appreciate that. :)

- those that sms me (even today i kept on receiving smses) to wish me happy bday. especially those that sms without the inspiration of Friendster and Facebook like AW & ZQ! *hahaha*

Just thought I should write a post just to thank these dear ones for everything. Will post up some photos and details of what I did and received later.

Once again, many thanks to all my dears!

I love you all loads! :)

i'm feeling better after the break yesterday n today.

was so stressed on tues due to the GST submission. i seemed to be getting a lot of things wrong. zero-rated n out-of-scope are so confusing with all the adjustments, CN n DN. but thank God i made it in time for ZM though i only left office at abt 930pm.

how impt is it to rest, take a break n spend sometime just by myself, for myself.

no more wondering thoughts. please.

God-time in a while. yeah. :)

i bought my bro a NICE polo-shirt from Buffalo.

sometimes i'm so NICE i cannot stand myself.

and what good taste i have...
