Anyway...a quick post here...Everything's good here in Sunway. Not slacking in work...How surprising. Had a great time in Mandy's place for the Lantern Festival last saturday...despite being attacked and having my Nike shoes stolen from that whole bunch of monkeys. Great time spent at my uncle's place. Great time sharing the Gospel with my Bro. Great time getting lost together. Great time going church with him together.

And great time having tonnes of assignments. My real lacking of sleep days still not here yet. Maybe today will be. Have to do a flash animation.

And I really miss Malacca. That day Juliana treated Geng Yi, Grace and I a meal of steamboat dinner. It was a crazy nite. I found out how a donkey sounded like in the mind of Ju....So not donkey-ish...

I didn't mean to mess things up

Date : 7th September 2007
Time : 6.17pm
Listening to : I believe - My Sassy Girl OST
Where : Room - Malacca

These few days, I was felt rather melancholic. It's like most of the songs that I was listening to drew me back to one particular person. It's not that I listened to it on purpose. It was just on the playlist. Quite sad. Cos' in many ways, I think I've ruined a friendship. Even 2 days ago, I was dreaming about him and another good friend. He was mad at me and I woke up feeling so like this.... -.-!!! T.T...

And so I think he's going MIA for a while. I felt so shitty about it for days man. Can't listen to I Believe, David Tao or freakin Maroon 5 for goodness sake. Dunnoe why lah! Don't ask. I know I didn't handle the situation well a couple years back. And I know we didn't exactly had any problem after that even though things were ugly. But I am seriously sorry I am just not normal when it comes to things like that ok? It's not that I could help it. I also will not in any way try to explain why things went that way. I am just sorry that I am plain weird having this problem. I am just having a messed up brain and I am best being right where I am. Don't even tell me I don't have to say sorry because you know I should. And this is not even a stupid excuse made up a few years back. Know me by the way I lived my life. It's just plain weird if you don't speak to me anymore. I know we don't meet often but sial... if you ever, ever go real awkward meeting me or something, I think Andrew gonna have to listen to me rant about it endlessly. Aiyoooo....I dunnoe what to say d. If I don't blog bout this, I don't think I can leave for the new semester with a start man. I don't know what's the big deal lah but it just is lah ok?!

The difference between a Drive Thru...and a Walk Thru.....

Date : 5th September 2007
Time : 12.07 AM
Listening to : MSN
Where : Room - Malacca

What a great night out with Juliana and Yen! Hehe. Yen was a lil' unhappie last Sunday. But glad that we managed to have a great lotz of fun. I picked Ju up at 9.30pm and we chatted in the car all the way to yen's place. then we headed towards McD 24 Hours in Dataran Pahlawan. All the way there we chatted about stuff and laughed like mad fellas. Something about Shin Chan and Doraemon.

Anyway, when we reached McD, we bumped into May Ling and Celine. Adoih...SO long didn't meet May Ling already... Since last year. Anyway, it was her birthday. What a coincident. Chatted for a while before three of us headed to the counter. Like usual, Ju had dificulties in choosing what she wants. We stood there for some time until one cashier was clear of people and Ju got scared and hid behind us and I got freaked out of being gestured to the counter (Cos' we dunnoe what to order yet...haha" and I hid behind Yen. Then Ju said, "We're like cards shuffling man..." Hahahahahahaa! Sent us all roaring in laughter. But we were saved by incoming customers. I think we stood there quite long. And u said...
Thank God it's 24 Hours. We can stand here as long as we want.
Again, we laughed like gila. When we finally stepped up to the counter, I said to Ju... "So stupid...I was considering if i should get both nuggets and fries. McValue Meal got both wat!" And then she went, "Where got nuggets???" Then I pointed at the display picture behind the counter. Then she cannot see. Yen and I pointed again. Still tak nampak. Right in front of her. Wah piang.... Then when she finally spotted it, she burst out laughing. Gila....

After we ordered, they decided to sit right next to the ketchup and chili dispenser. Whenever we want any salt, pepper or sauce, we just reach over and grab it...seated. Gila max. Then May Ling and Celine came over and we took pictures together.

After both of them cabut-ed, Yen, Ju and I were considering going satay celup. But suddenly, a mad idea popped out of nowhere. We were considering ordering at the DRIVE THRU counter. And as we walked along the lane, we were laughing macam crazy. And we were talking about pretending to drive by walking. And then when we were near the counter, we halted for a while. Almost pulled out. But Yen spotted a stretch of white wall. Like usual, white = posing time. And we made a detour and took a few snapshots there. Then I started the camera on video mode and the whole dare started. We actually walked up to the counter. Yen and I asked if we could order there. Ju already laughing already. That guy so kesian...dunnoe how to handle us. He said must order inside. Yen then asked...
Pura-pura drive pun tak boleh ker?
Complete with actions sammo! Wah lao! Hahahahaaa! Too bad I was laughing too hard and didn't catch that on video. the end we did the dare but was not successful. Then we took sammo crazy snapshots. And then we headed back to the car. On the way, we stopped to take "penjara" pictures... Mentang-mentang just did a crazy stunt. Hahahaha....

Then as we drove past McD, I came up with another mad idea. I said...
Let's really drive thru McD... And order.
And 3 of us agreed. So I made a turn back but masuk lorong salah. Missed a turning. So, instead of going one round again, I did something mad. I reversed all the way back that one way street. My mom sees that she will freak out man. Then Yen started the camera on video mode again. And off we went for McD Drive Thru Part II. We drove thru and the reaction of that guy was PRICELESS.

Darn surprised. HAhaHAahaha! Stunt berjaya! At least this compensate to the failure of our earlier stunt at the beginning of the year. We actually thought of doing the Drive Thru 3 times. Each time with diff driver. But malas to make a big turn.

Anyway, it was a great night. Considering putting the videos on blog.....

Snapshots will be up when i have time!

Like Yen said...

The real meaning behind Drive that you really have to drive... The difference between a Drive Thru and Walk Thru...

Before they call, I will answer.

Isaiah 65:24
"Before they call, I will answer"

This story was written by a doctor who worked in South Africa.

One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in
spite of all we could do, she died leaving us with a tiny premature baby
and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the
baby alive, as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an
We also had no special feeding facilities. Although we lived on the
equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student
midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool
that the baby would be wrapped in.

Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came
back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had
burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical climates). "And it is our
last hot water bottle!" she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good
crying over spilled milk so in Central Africa it might be considered no
good crying over burst water bottles. They do not grow on trees, and
there are no drugstores down forest pathways.

"All right," I said, "put the baby as near the fire as you safely can,
and sleep between the baby and the door to keep it free from drafts.
Your job is to keep the baby warm."

The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers with any
of the orphanage children who chose to gather with me. I gave the
youngsters various suggestions of things to pray about and told them
about the tiny baby. I explained our problem about keeping the baby
warm enough, mentioning the hot water bottle, and that the baby could
so easily die if it got chills.
I also told them of the two-year-old sister, crying because her mother
had died.

During prayer time, one ten-year old girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual
blunt conciseness of our African children. "Please, God" she prayed,
"send us a water bottle. It'll be no good tomorrow, God, as the baby
will be dead, so please send it this afternoon."

While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the prayer, she added, "And
while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little
girl so she'll know You really love her?"

As often with children's prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I
honestly say, "Amen"? I just did not believe that God could do this.
Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything, the Bible says so. But there
are limits, aren't there? The only way God could answer this particular
prayer would be by sending me a parcel from homeland. I had been in
Africa for almost four years at that time, and I had never, ever
received a parcel from home.
Anyway, if anyone did send me a parcel, who would put in a hot water
I lived on the equator! Halfway through the afternoon, while I was
teaching in the nurses' training school, a message was sent that there
was a car at my front door.

By the time I reached home, the car had gone, but there, on the
veranda, was a large twenty-two pound parcel. I felt tears pricking my
eyes. I could not open the parcel alone, so I sent for the orphanage
Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each knot. We
folded the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly. Excitement was

Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes were focused on the large cardboard
box. From the top, I lifted out brightly colored, knitted jerseys.
Eyes sparkled as I gave them out. Then there were the knitted bandages
for the leprosy patients, and the children looked a little bored. Then
came a box of mixed raisins and sultanas - that would make a batch of
buns for the weekend Then, as I put my hand in again, I felt
the.....could it really be? I grasped it and pulled it out - yes, a
brand-new, rubber hot water bottle. I cried. I had not asked God to
send it; I had not truly believed that He could. Ruth was in the front
row of the children. She rushed forward, crying out, "If God has sent
the bottle, He must have sent the dolly too!"

Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the small,
beautifully dressed dolly. Her eyes shone! She had never doubted!

Looking up at me, she asked: "Can I go over with you and give this
dolly to that little girl, so she'll know that Jesus really loves her?"

That parcel had been on the way for five whole months. Packed up by my
former Sunday school class, whose leader had heard and obeyed God's
prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to the equator. And one of
the girls had put in a dolly for an African child - five month s
before, in answer to the believing prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it
"that afternoon."

"Before they call, I will answer" (Isaiah 65:24) This awesome prayer
takes less than a minute. When you receive this, say the prayer, that's
all you have to do. No strings attached. Just send it on to whomever
you want - but do send it on. Prayer is one of the best free gifts we
There is no cost but a lot of rewards.

Let's continue praying for one another Father, I ask you to bless my
friends reading this right now. I am asking You to minister to their
spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them Your peace
and mercy.
Where there is self doubting, release a renewed confidence to work
through them. Where there is spiritual stagnation, I ask You to renew
them by revealing Your nearness, and by drawing them into greater
intimacy with You. Where there is fear, reveal Your love, and release
to them Your courage.
Bless their finances, give them greater vision, and raise up leaders
and friends to support and encourage them. Give each of them discernment
to recognize the evil forces around them, and reveal to them the power
they have in You to defeat it. I ask you to do these things in Jesus'

Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend will bless you
Passing this on to one not considered a friend is something Christ
would do.

"Do not ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you're not willing to
move your feet.

God Bless !!
