I know this is Bimbotic

Okok... I know to say this is a very bimbotic thing, especially at my age...

But well, I saw 2 REALLY CUTE guys just now! Ha. =)

One was the new gym instructor. Really Cute. And the other instructor was going like, "dun you all find him familiar? Well maybe if he takes off his top then you all will." And I was going like, yeah, what a thing to say...

And then when I was going to the washroom, I suddenly say him on a poster outside our changing room advertising for some beach thingy.

Next was the doctor that I saw after my gym. Well I'm not sick at the moment. But I decided to go take the long-awaited chicken pox jab cos 2 (!!!!!) of my colleagues are down with it and I'm seriously worried. And so I went to the 24hr clinic near my house and I was seriously pleasantly surprised then I saw such a cute doctor!


Not that it made my day but well, guess it made my day end on a "higher" note? Ha. =)

Volcano Eruption

I heard that the volcano erupted during my wonderful lunch with Ah Bee.

Am I glad that I missed it once again. God sure has good timing. But I'm kinda sorry that poor LC had to always go thru it though she knows nothing about it and somehow it always happens while Somu and I are not around.

Ah well... :/

Dare to be You!

Kinda lazy to blog much except that I think all the contestants backstage will no doubt from that day on think that I'm a very fierce CGL. HA. Ah well... You be the judge... =)

Taken at her place when we were tired from all the preparations...

Am so proud of you!!! =)

My pretty gal & me in the dark dark Church Recept
For more of the photos, please go see my Facebook. As for the rest that we took that I didn't upload, I will entertain on a case-by-case basis. =)

My First Attempt at Cheesecake-Making...

When my colleague out of the blue made and brought cheesecake for us some time back, I've already set in my heart that I was going to somehow try it out someday.

And well, yesterday was that day.

And so while I went out on Sat to buy safety pins (of which when I came back I realised that someone tried to commit suicide RIGHT OUTSIDE my hse - but that's another story), I detoured to buy cheese all ready for the great feat on Sunday.

But I'm sad to announced that I F.A.I.L.E.D... ='(

Turns out that cos my biscuit was not the really dry kind, hence I had put in too much Margarine. Then cos my water was not hot enough for the gelatine to melt, I poured away most of it and hence my poor cake is kinda "mashy" when you try to lift it off the tray. So So So SADZ...


I've bought back-up to try again. HA.

Just for the fun and while I still have spare money to "play" with before BF comes along... =)

This time I made chocolate cheesecake. Next up - Oreo cheesecake, here I come!

You may still be interested in witchcraft, but you're by no means a stereotypical witch.

While you don't seem all that witchy, people may think you're a bit weird.

You're definitely a little offbeat. No one really knows what to make of you sometimes.

Which Day of the Week are You?

You Are Wednesday

Like this day of the week, you are ruled by Mercury.

More than anything, you are unpredictable.

You are witty and wise - but you are also easily bored.

You tend to be flighty and careless. You are unreliable at times.

In some ways, it's perfect that you match up with hump day.

You are always coasting downhill - even when it seems like an uphill battle.

I really am a Wednesday???? Hmmm.....

This morning someone gave me a call in office that REALLY scared me.

When I answered it, I was still kinda stunned as to how she found me. And then I realised that I must have indicated where I worked on the online site that she is linked to me on. So it's kinda like, she went to search for my office number to contact me when she in a sense doesn't exactly know me. Erhm, ok to make it not so scary, she's actually from a headhunting firm.

But that scared me enough to remove most of my personal information on Facebook. Which in turn sparked off something really funny. But that's another story. =)

Next up, clearing all personal information from Friendster when I've the time to access that.

Meanwhile, you should do the same to clear any personal information from all your online social sites. You never know how someone you do not know will actually trace your whereabouts...

Bitterness - Disappointments

Recently I've had the opportunity to meet up with some long-time friends that I haven't seen for several years.

I think the saddest part of such meet-ups is when you talk to your friends and realise that they've become (more) bitter than the last you spoke to them. More often than not, it's because of disappointments that they have experienced with people and life through the years. People that are close to us like our parents & friends are often the source And it's sad cos they have to carry it with them through the prime of their age. And usually such dear ones are those most resistant to religion cos to them, it's irrational and often forgiveness is the hardest thing for them to do. Almost as if they would rather die than to forgive.


Why allow those foolish people who do not know how to appreciate & love us to "determine" our lives ever after?

Please. We all deserve a better life. And it's not just materially.

Fun Tribute to my Friends II

Ok... And yes I inserted 2 photos of just me... =)

Saturday, October 18, 2008

Fun Tribute to my Friends! =)

If you do not see your photo here with me, doesn't mean you're not my friend... Just means that I haven't found a NICE photo that we took together. Else, it would be that our nice photo is in my laptop and not on my bro's comp. =) But I promise that I would put up our nice photo (if we have one) when I use my laptop.

作词:杨明学 作曲:李偲松

Standing again at your doorstep, we fall into morose silence again
This kind of expectation harboured by only one party
How much longer can it last

At last, you described to me how gentle she is
Though you are still holding on to my hand
I am no longer in your heart

我真的懂 你不是喜新厌旧
I truly understand that you are not favouring the new against the old
是我 没有
It's me, I haven't
Stayed by your side when you were lonely

别再看著我说著你爱过 别太伤痛
Don't look at me and said that I have loved before, and shouldn't be too hurt
我不难过 这不算什么
I am not sad, this is nothing
It is just that why the tears are flowing, I do not know

就让我走 让我开始享受自由
Just let me go, and get started in savouring freedom
回忆很多 你的影子也会充满我生活
There are many memories, and even the shadow of you can fill my life
我并不懦弱 你比谁都懂
I am not being weak, you of all people should understand this
虽然寂寞 这会是我 最后的宽容
Though I would be lonely, this shall be my last concession

抱紧我 再抱紧我
Hug me tightly, and hug me tightly again
这一份感动 就请你让我留在胸口
This exhilarating captivation, please let me keep it in my chest
别再说 是你的错
Do not say anymore that it is your fault
爱到了尽头 是非对错
When love is at its end, there is no right and wrong
就让它随风 忘了所有 过的比你快活
Let it drift away with the wind, and let us forget everything. I'm living better than you

真的懂 你不是喜新厌旧
I truly understand that you are not favouring the new against the old
不要再说 或许这是最好的结果
Do not say anymore that this is, perhaps, the best ending
现在分手 总好过你不爱我一拖再拖
Breaking up now is better than dragging a relationship without love
松开你的手 离开你左右
Releasing your hands, leaving your side
我向前走 这会是我真正的解脱
I am walking forward, this shall be my true release

what price am i willing to pay?
what about you.

thinking of yOu, yoU and yOU

every morning when i reach the bottom of my office building, i see something which remind me of yOu. and a tinge of sadness fills me as a recall the times we had, the moments we shared. why is it that things had to evolve till such? why did yOu have to end up like yoU? even if it's just for this period.

and yOU? i dun understand...

My First Hairy Crab Experience

It's one of those random sudden lunch treats from the big boss again. And this time, it's to some chinese restaurant near a hotel next to Peninsular Plaza.

Starters was something that really freaked me out - duck's tongue!!!


It looks really scary... while the rest of my colleagues chomp on it as if it's something that they eat often...

*faintz again*

The next starters that came was duck's webbed feet & wing... I skipped this as well. Imagine eating the web?!?!?! It is just me??? :/

Thankfully the next thing that was served was nice & NORMAL chicken soup. HOWEVER, they served it in a small teapot instead of the usual bowl. So imagine my shock when they poured the stuff out from the teapot into a small cup and then told us that it's soup. And inside the teapot were all the good ingredients like chicken, mushroom, dried scallops and some kind of shell fish.

Next came the main "attraction" of the day - Hairy Crabs! They served it as individual portions - one for each of us. First time I ate crab roe (I'm serious) and it tasted kinda unique and sweet. But it was really nice... =) I took so so so long to eat it cos at the same time we all had to ensure that we dun "seah suay" in front of the big boss using our hands to eat.


I took photos of the teapot and the stuff that they gave us to eat the crab with. Really cool! I'll upload when I've the time. =)

Then came the ginger tea to ward off the "coolness" from the crab. Followed by abalone of individual servings for each of us... Yes I know you're thinking that I'm really very fortunate right now...

Then more duck came (which I skipped cos I dun fancy it). Vegetables was some you mai cai from china followed by Rice noodles with more crab meat... I skipped dessert and just stuck to the complimentary fruits.

And so that was my 1st experience with the Hairy Crab. Kinda strange that people prefer this to my fave Black Pepper Crab or Butter Snow Crab???? =)

it's been sooo long since i ***** so hard in service.

Pst Z's Wedding Anniversary

As usual, we try to take photos on such occassions that no matter how hard we try to strain ourselves, we're just a dot in the sea of faces...
BUT... I love such photos! =)
Pst was really so so sweet!!! The 10 things that he promised to do....

Pst K's Bday Celebration Video 2008

Ok ok... I know I'm kinda late in putting and writing about this. But when I read it in Bee's blog, I simply cannot help but put it here.

What she wrote is so so so true.

Many times we often give ourselves excuses for not giving our 100%. We tell ourselves that we have our own lives to live, we're not full-time staff (at least not any longer for me) and definitely not getting paid for what we do since very often what we do does not render us any appreciation from people at all. Yet we forget about our spiritual parents; how they have laid down their lives for the same God, did their best though they do not get paid from the church as well. Worse still, public scrutiny is on them all the time and what seems like the right thing to do in God's eyes "rewards" them with criticisms from the very people that call themselves our "brothers & sisters".

No doubt that life is tough. You are tired. So am I. Well, so are Sun & Pst K. Yet they just keep moving on like clock-work. Why? Because they do not just look at the present. But like Jesus they look at the Joy that was set before them and so strength comes from seeing the future. So what do you see? What do I see?

God, let me see what Sun & Pst K sees. What Pst Z sees. I want to run the race together with them and be in the league with the other Heroes of Faith. Ok, I dun think I will ever qualify to be their league. I do not mind being a backup for the league. Perhaps I do not even qualify to be a backup. But no matter what, I just wanna be there at the "trials". I wanna carry the same genes, the same DNA. To be their matured "son".

So what do you see? Do you see what my Dad sees? Do you see what my spiritual parents see?

Are you willing to be a "son" in CHC?

I've seen you standing alone and face the fight
When others laid their weapons down
And headed for home
I've seen you face the fire and come out shining like gold,
And I want you to know...

I've seen you lay visions down for someone else
And give your life as a sacrifice, no fanfare around
I've watched you weather storms that would have left others drowned,
And this is what I've found:

You are my hero, my knight in shining armor
A warrior of God's grace, standing alone faithfully
You are my hero, you're a light that pierces darkness
With love that's not afraid to fight for someone like me,
Encouraging me to stand firm and free
You are my hero! (X2)

I've seen you look down the road and see beyond
The miles and head for truth in faith while bearing a load
I've heard your anguished cries for grace and watched joy unfold,
And I wan you to know:

I've seen you face death with a deep burning faith
That stirs up the passion in me!
Your heart, like A fire, abounding in grace,
A beacon helping others to see; help set me free

one lesson that God has put me thru again & again this yr... is that sometimes it doesnt matter how hard we try, how much effort we put in, how strong our desires are, how much tears we've shed or how many sleepless nights we've been thru. what matters is how much we lean & depend on God.
and what pst said on tues is so true. many times our peaks are just after our dark valley moments. and so, i sure hope my peak is coming...
entering into a new season in my life. join me?

my 1st photo for the night... somehow taking photos in that place makes everything seem so unreal...

you'll know what i mean when i find time to upload the photo i took with min also...

A Starking Discovery

At the "strange" wedding that I was at last night (strange cos it's the ONLY wedding that I didn't take a photo with the couple throughout the whole night), I made a startling discovery!

That I've actually been to Taiwan TWICE instead of just once!!! Dun ask me why I totally forgot about my 1st trip there... But it's more of like, mixing and combining my 2 trips there together that I kinda like cannot differentiate which trip is which until I really think carefully which pertains to which.

And so this means that I've been to the following countries (excluding nearby trips and those that for other strange reasons I've also forgotten about them):

- 2003: Taiwan (Sun concert)
- 2004: Israel
- 2006: Taiwan (Emerge)
- 2007: NEA I
- 2008: NEA II

Cool! =)

I think I need to go to the other side of the globe and get out of the big ASIA. Any sponsors?

Friday, October 3, 2008

is it the end or the beginning...

i dunno...

sure feels easier to just end it, though i cannot bear to let the consequences happen.

so i guess by default, it's the beginning?

Most of my photos are in Facebook

okie dokie...

i've loaded most of my interesting photos onto Facebook. cos it's much faster to load there than here. so for here, i've decided to just load those that i have comments on... =)

but for the rest of my private collection, it's on a view per request basis. =)

just how many times do i need to say it before you all actually understand what i mean

i keep bumping into my ex-colleague these few weeks that i find it quite amusing. the same person like at least once a week, no matter where i might be heading to. think i'll arrange to meet him for lunch one of these days if i see him on facebook cos i dun think i have his contact anymore.

who knows, maybe i'll bump into him even B4 i see him on facebook. Haaa....
