this new year, i hope to draw closer to God. i realised i've been slacking in my walk with Him and it doesn't feel good at all. i pray that He's door is still open for me and i have faith that it is :)
as for us all, lets hope 2009 brings us to greater heights in understanding His love and grace. to be grateful for the grace that allows us to be where we are today. it's amazing what a forgiving and loving God we have. no matter how far or how long we've strayed away, He's always there waiting with arms open wide for us to return to Him. in Him there's always hope and light. amazing.
anyway...here's wishing all of you a very Happy New Year!!

Christmas sends a simple yet significant message that is still not known to many i believe. it's not about Santa (i dont know where that white-beard guy came from anyway), neither is it bout gifts nor parties. it all about a simple story with profound message.
it's about JESUS CHRIST. this was the day that He was born and sent down to earth for both you and me, a day of rejoice. this little baby born in a manger was sent to earth for a mission - to die for the sins of you and me that we would be reconciled with God. without this baby boy we're heading hell.
so Christmas is a day to rejoice and be glad in it, for this is the day that our Saviour was born :)
of course parties and gifts and fun are not wrong, it's just that make sure this day is celebrated for it's real reason-Jesus. so go!! be merry and celebrate :)

i've moved to the new office yesterday and honestly, i dont really like it :p it's not the place, it's just the whole getting-used-to-it feeling. i've just finally got myself settled in and gotten used to that place, now they wanna move. i wshed they had done it earlier. now i have to start all over. new desk, new work station, new pantry, new route and even new toilet. sheesh...
this keyboard position is so uncomfortable and this work station is so exposed. i had alot of privacy in the previous one. now its like every thing i do can be seen :p
ok it's 8 minutes past nine and there's no one here still.

see, the story goes like this...at my grand cousin's wedding last saturday, my grandaunt (not the bride's mum) wanted to intro me to this single doctor from Ireland, a friend of the bride. huh? intro? you might ask. yes. in this 20th century. and the conversation above, was my mum telling me what she had talked to that aunt the phone earlier yesterday, which was like three days after her first attempt on saturday....and she still didnt give up :p
this was how it went:
A: come ivy, i want to introduce you to Dr M (not Mahathir :p).
I: huh? doctor who?
A: Dr M, Aleena's friend from Ireland. come come...i want to introduce both of you.
I: huh??!! no no...dont want la aunty (trying to sound as polite as possible), i can find my own boyfriend :p
A: *turns to my cousin who just joined the conversation* ah..come michelle, i introduce you to Dr M.
M: huh? what? who?
A: *pulls her hand into the house towards Dr M*
then i dont know what happened but my cousin came out very fast.
A: *drags (literally) my hand into the house towards Dr M*
I: *showing the "Help me" look to my cousins*
A: ah...Dr M this is ivy. Ivy this is Dr M
Dr M: oh oh... *shakes my hand* nice to meet you ivy.
I: *mind went blank as everyone stares* er...Hi (shakes back his hand) *turns around and slowly walks away*
man...it was so awfully awkward. but honestly, i pity Dr M more. i mean he's a guy and a professional for that matter. and here goes this aunt of mine, publicly declaring that he's single and as if saying "Dr M, why at this age still dont have girlfriend ar..some more a doctor. here let me get you one." well..at least that's how i felt what my aunt was trying to convey indirectly. i mean...he looks like a nice guy, seriously, so dont have to say so openly and loudly when introducing la. kesian that fella. i'm a girl and i'm still young (20 is not old ok :) so i dont really care. but i feel sorry for him la. the whole day was kinda awkward after that. haha.
sorry Dr M ! :) at least i kept your privacy by not disclosing your name XD

it was really heart warming to see the happy faces and hear the laughters of my family during my grandcousin's wedding. everyone was having pure fun. i also love it that my family is a multi-racial family. we have chinese, indians, malays and even eurasians. a true malaysian family i would say. oh and guess what, the best man was a malay and the bride's maid was an indian. now that's what i call muhibah :)
all in all, i enjoyed every bit of it :) and to Daniel and Aleena, all the best as you journey in this new chapter together! may the love of God be filled in your marriage :)
and and and...Aleena, in case u stumble upon this blog, you looked absolutely gorgeous!! :)
there were actually tons of pictures but i dont know why my cousins didnt upload them. or else i could have 'stolen' more to post it up :p
ps: that's nine 'love' in one single post. and it just became ten. haha
Thursday, November 13, 2008
well before you give your verdict, let me explain why have i been blogging for three days when i'm supposed to be working. ok here's why:
- my senior senior is, was and will be on MC
- i've done whatever i'm supposed to do
- low activity season
- there's really nothing to do
- i'll be embarrassed if i walk over to my senior and ask if there's anything to do again cause i've done that countless times :p
- my senior is also free, so that shows that there's really no work :)
so...i did manage to get myself something decent for the wedding dinner after three hours of solo shopping last saturday. it's not too bad really. it's a dress :) and i like it (duh! i chose it). it's not to o formal and not too casual. i also got my self a pair of heels at a pretty unexpected price (that means cheap) and a working shirt. so yea...quite happy :). then i also got my mum a blouse and my sis a top and cute pinky hairbands. didnt have enough $$ for Ivan though. hehe. he'll have to wait till Christmas :p it was a fruitful day despite the painful soles. hehe
now i've nothing else to do. why dont they put sofa beds in offices XD

after reading those posts, frankly speaking, i was pretty surprise. haha. based on the amount of emotions i've put in when writing those posts, i least aspect i'm of that type. haha. but i guess a lil of emotion cant do any harm :p
well..i must say alot has change since. and i mean alot. mostly positive ones. myself for one have change too and hopefully for the better. God has indeed been faithful. despite my disobedience, lack of faith and pride sometimes, He stuck to me. what more can i ask of my Father? at times i wish i was wiser at those time when i needed too but i figured if i was wise i wouldn't have needed God. and thus, not realise how deep is His love for me. reading those posts, i really am grateful for the one Friend that was there for me through thick and thin, my dearest Lord Jesus, couldn't have gone through without Him.
"He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." i Thessalonians 5.24

after work today i thought i'd go shopping at midvalley or sunway pyramid. i need to get at least something decent for my grandcousin's wedding that's coming up next saturday. this is one wedding that i think i would at least have some fun after all the unknown weddings i've been to, that ppl only go to show face, eat some food and go home. at least this time is a closer relative. pretty exciting :) so yea...i must get something nice! haha. i've actually went on a scout last night after work and spotted a couple of pretty blouses. so hopefully i'll be able to get one today...at least.
bus and train have become my secondary transport and almost primary. aahh..no! hopefully not :p practically every single day except sundays, i ride on either one of them. so sad :( haha. and man...ktm is one 'special' train you should try to avoid taking..especially on weekdays. unfortunately for me, i have no choice. i think it's worse than sardines. i dont even have to move and people will push me in to the train. in the train, everyone's so squashed that you only have enough room for breathing. also, its like a mini wave in there when squashed passengers 'flow' according to the movement of the train..especially the people in the middle who have no poles to cling on to. yes. it IS fun. it gets better when you get people around you who cough and sneeze without covering their mouths and nose. wa...!! i dont know bout others but i kinda have phobia bout that. i imagine the germs floating in the air and then enter into my nostrils and it'll be stuck in my head till i reach my station and get out. eee...cannot tahan.
BUT i still thank God for these public transports. without them i would have to be stuck in my remotely placed home :p haha
*out of boredom, i've highlighted my favourite things in life.

then while the girls...well technically there were two girls and a 'girl'' :p - made the mashed potato, the guys painted robert's gate.
btw bryan painted too...he took some time off to test his photography skills :)
then after everything was done, that was bout 11pm...we decided to have a night picnic by the poolside.
full and happy.
Saturday, October 18, 2008
i seriously wonder where do these tons of people come from? can KL hold so many people? haha. it's like there's no escape route for me. every transport i take is jam packed with people. almost everyday i have to wrestle with crowds to get into the bus and most of the time its not the matter of seats anymore, its whether can we actually board the bus. there are times when the bus doesn't even stop, leaving all the eager and anxious passengers-to-be standing there like 'dong-dong' and that includes me :p
i was just thinkin, when do i have time to go shopping? i cant seem to think of when. i need a new pair of shoes and new wallet. i also dont know when will be the next time i go out for movies. what's the latest movie ar? haiz...macam mana ni. haha
oh oh. there's something i found out on thrusday that shocked me to death...ok maybe not death but close. my colleague, the only one will be working with me under mr.chia (my boss), is staying in the same area as me! and same section! wait there's more...same road! my goodness, when i found out i was like "huh??!!" she lives just about 10metres down the road. a small world indeed. haha.

so...i've not been writting for quite a while, a month and six days to be exact. so much going on since the last post. exams, interview, house moving (not mine, adrienne's and robert's) and then finally work. i'm so looking forward to weekends now and holidays :p haha
i dont think i'll be writing any soon unless i have free time which i doubt. so i guess for now that all the updates i've got. till then, toodles :)

if only everyone could see how gloriously His renown was being proclaimed,the picture of the lyrics "how great is our God...and all will see how great is our God" will be made much clearer.
i stand in awe of Him. indeed His name is to be praised above all else.

Passion = awesome !!!
Tuesday, July 29, 2008
plus, there're like four assignments due in two weeks or less. and i cant believe i totally forgot i have one due next monday! thank God, i mean really thank Him, the lecturer extended the time to the following monday. i dont know what made her do that but i sure need that extra time :p
on a side note, connexion conference and passion is this week! i hope that we'll continue to pray that both these events will see their goals accomplished...that through the love of Christ many hearts will be touched and lives saved. besides that, lets also pray that not only will these events change the hearts and lives of the non-believers but that they will also renew the lives of believers. that they will be renewed in their faith and passion for God.
this will be one exciting week :)

just turn on the news and you'll never miss out on what's 'new' in the parliment. ministers are insulting each other like nobody's business. that's just plain childish and lame. what's the point of voting for these ppl when all they care about is their own agendas and not serving the citizens as they 'promised' before the election. all empty promises.
personally, to be on the opposition side, questioning every single move of the government and make them sound as bad as possible is really easy. even i can do that...when nth better to do, i lsit down all the problems and then throw it all at the government to answer. it's so easy but try being in the government! things are not as simple. say solve means solve.
my mum used to say "these ppl complain so much but asked to take care of own family also they not capable, what more a country." i feel that's really true...humans always tend to see the speck of dust in others' eyes but the plank in their own they cant.
i may sound so pro government but i'm not all that against the oppositions. no doubt each country will not progress without oppostitions to point out the flaws of the ruling goverment, so it's as vital to have them around but it becomes sickening when certain individual leaders try to go against the government for personal benefits, gains and power.
a respected leader be it from the government or oppositions should try acting like one before asking us to vote for them. stop being so childish.

so here's what i've gathered from reading that book and trust me every young adults on this planet should read this. it just gives you a clear idea nd understanding of what a true and 'correct' relationship should be. and for the Christians, this book really outlines and defines the kind of relationship that God would like us to have...one that mirrors Him.
here's the summary:
the key foundation to a relationship is commitment and the reward of this commitment is the joy of intimacy (i'm just paraphrasing Harris's line)not vice versa which is contrary to the perception of the world today. tons of young people today think that "oh..if we start getting close (holding hands, hugging, kissing and even sex), he or she will eventually commit to me" or that by doing all these they will help sustain the relationship. wrong.
when someone gets into a relationship without commitment and marriage in mind, that selfish person is actually robbing. what? robbing? yup robbing...in a sense that he is robbing that 'gf' of his from her future husband which God has predestined her to be with. instead of giving her whole self to her husband on the wedding day, this guy has robbed part if not full of her from her husband. same goes to a girl.
Harris gave a clearer view on this through a letter sent by one of his readers. this girls wrote to him telling Harris of a dream she had. in her dream, it was her wedding day. she walked down the isle with joy in her heart knowing that she was finally marrying the mand she loved. after the vows and all, the pastor asked if anyone rejected their marriage. a girl in the congregation stood up, walked to the front and stood beside the groom. then this was followed by a couple more girls and they made a line beside the groom. so the bride asked with tears in her eye, "what's going on?". the groom answered "i'm sorry but these are the girls that i once gave (heart, soul, mind, love, care) myself to and now i can only give you what's left of me."
personally, as i read that and thought the bride must have felt like a stab in her chest. it hurts. it really does and so that is why God asked us to wait upon Him patiently and when the right time comes, He will reveal the person you're supposed to spent your life with.
this book does not discourage dating or courtship as the title might indicate, rather it gives triggers our minds to think and evaluate how we can be pure in our minds, soul and body so that we can give our whole to our husbands or wives.
here's an irony : i'm now reading PS I Love You.
it's just for fun la :p haha. i've always wanted to read this since it's such a big hit.

"Intimacy without commitment contradicts what the Bible teaches about true love. Instead of being selfless, it's selfish; instead of being patient, it's impatient; instead of looking out for the ongoing good of the other person, it's focused on the needs of the moment."
"Where is true love found? It's found in God's brand of love-love founded on faithfulness, love rooted in commitment."
"The joy of intimacy is the reward of commitment"

- learnt to look at things not only for a one sided point of view but to also look at them from the other perspectives...why only look at one side of the cube when it has four sides?
- learnt not to take things too seriously that sometimes i feel like i've lost the wow-ness for things =(
- to understand or at least try to understand that people do something for a reason
- learnt to look for the 'positives' in people....not easy you know :p but at least it makes life happier =)
- forgiveness...it makes me happier and less drained...if u haven't known, it's really tiring being angry :p
hmm...thats's quite a bit of a learning there huh. well....it's all part of His great plan, The Ivy Mak's Life Plan. haha. but yea...all that had happened is God-allowed and He simply allows them to happen so that i could learn these life lessons that ultimately moves me a step forward in this life plan of mine.
i've just sent like 10 fun toys, 8 hugs, 5 teddy bears and 15 lil green roseys on facebook .
and i'm gettin annoyed with the curiosity i get each time i hear a sms coming in only to open and see: "subscribe Fuyoh get a 5% rebate or type EURO to win this price that price. sender: Digi" -_-

i mean what better place to be than to spend four days with our brothers and sisters in Christ in a camp and to have just pure clean and crazy fun. but at the same time bonded through one purpose....to glorify the Almighty and to acknowledge that He is the King of this universe!
i just couldn't hold back my tears to see simple gestures in the youths such as lifting their hands during worship. gestures so simple yet so overwhelming to see that these young people are actually acknowledging their Father above as the Almighty...One who deserves all glory and honour!! even as i write this now its so hard to hold back the tears to see how many lives and hearts were touched through this camp. indeed His understanding no one can fathom.
and yes...i still cant believe how small we are compared to Him who made it all!
TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!!

but you know what, i trust in God that He'll give me a deserving result. honestly, the fact that i'm only answerable to God and that's what matters, makes me feel much better. i mean i did all i can with His help and i trust that He'll take care of the rest =)

this whole studying thing is giving me a headache and Law doesn't help any much less. the lecturer made it worst by giving notes that are ridiculously tough to comprehend and that without clear explainations. so how? well thank God for the power of internet though it didnt really clear my queries.
now as i'm still searching for more info, i've decided to check out on recipes for cupcakes. hehe. i've always wanted to try to bake these cute and pretty sweet-tasting-tiny-little-cakes but haven't found the time. so what better time to try than on my study break right? when i should be studying for that oh so alien subject. and the paper is coming up in 4days time. wuhoo...
no la....as tempting as it is, i wont bake them now. after finals maybe =)
in the past one week, i realised i've been indulging in a lot of sweet stuff. it's like i have this craving for sweet things i.e jellies, yogurt-filled biscuits, cupcakes (ready made :p) and biscuits with chocolate spread, donuts, choco wafers and more to come i predict. the best part is my house is always complete with these supplies. hehehe

oh Lord, strengthen me in days of darkness. teach me how to live a life that's pleasing to you. a life that upholds and glorifies You. may You lead me out of this darkness for i can bare it no more. in You i put my hope and trust and on You i lay all my burdens. Amen

i mean aren't there any feeling of remorse or sorry at all? it's like "look here everyone, this is all about me, me and me." c'mon stop being selfish. we live in a world where everything we do has its consequences and this will at least affect one if not all the people around us! btw i'm not saying this for myself alone but also for the others who are affected directly or indirectly by actions of some people, so to speak. i'm not emo or overly sensitive...i just feel that there's no point covering up anymore when there're no signs of change.
it's time to stop thinking bout yourself!! life of selfishness is just plain pathetic! stop and look around you, see how many people actually care and love you genuinely and really hope you'll change for the better. think!
Friday, April 11, 2008
there are times when i myself just feel like blurting out everything and anything without having to think of what and how i'll look and sound to people. there're some people whom i feel should be told off or yelled at or fired at. they deserve that knock on the head. immature? stupid? emo? sensitive? crazy? dont care!
but i cant not care. i care. just cant bring myself to do it.cant.
i think the basic and commnon reasons that stop us (rather stops me) from "exploding" are that we always want to keep that "nice" image we potray or to avoid straining a relationship or afraid of the post consequence(s) or afraid that others will change their perception of us. however most of all, i think we have to ask ourselves "Will God be happy?" the hesitation is actually the Holy Spirit stirring us that's why we stop to think before acting. there's a feeling of guilty-ness inside. which is good because it distinguishes us from the others. the Holy Spirit lives in us to giude and teach us what's right and wrong in the sight of our Father. to help mould us to reflect the image of Christ. on our own we will never be able to do it.
after talking so long, the only thing i could say to my friend was to pray and be patient. there's no such thing as dead end. there's always hope. God will make a way where there seems to be no way, He works in ways we cannot see, He will make a way. though it may seem silly to some but there's no problem to silly for God. so to my friend, keeping praying! =)

Tuesday, March 25, 2008
wow..bless those who curse you and pray for those who mistreat you? but why? well...of course i know why but can i do it? i dont know. for now? i really dont know if i can do it.
then people will come and tell me "why cant u just get over it and let it go?" dont u think i want to do that too? this is really tiring fyi. and its not that easy. saying is easy but nobody will truly understand because the one who went through it was and is ME. its really not as simple as you think. a kid wont know the meaning of pain if he has not fallen and got himself injured.
however, dont get me wrong, in saying all that i'm not pointing fingers at others for not being understanding because unlike some, that's just not my style. i understand and have been in the position of others in cases like this where words are the only thing we can offer.
that is why i choose not to talk about it anymore cause i know there's no point. all i have to deal with now is myself. unfortunately..haha...i'm a pretty expressive kinda person. i will always want to share my feelings and thoughts, so for now the people i feel sorry for are my mum and brother for having to listen to me. hehe.
but still, God is my ultimate listener...He's the one i tell everything to because i know He can understand me more than anyone can and He wont get tired of listening to me, which is what i really need =)
Friday, March 21, 2008
need some feedback. what do u think?
yes, my i-think-i-can-fly pic is ridiculously retarded.
Happy Good Friday!
Tuesday, March 18, 2008
besides eating and sleeping, there was nothing much we could do there. here's what we did:
Day 1 - arrived at 10.45, ate at around 11.15, took a nap from 12 till 4, ate again, took a stroll, ate, watched Mr Deeds (again!), sleep
Day 2 - woke up at around 8.30, ate breakfast, went to Colmar, Japanese Village and Rabbit park (yes, again! =p), ate lunch at 3, nap from 5 to
bout 7 plus, ate dinner at 8, cousins came for a stay, aunt brought more food...what else...eat la =p
Day 3 - woke up round 8sth, ate super filling breakfast, accompanied cousins to Colmar, Jap Village (that was my4th time!), got back to apt at 1, prepared lunch, ate, packed up and left at 4.
personally, out of everything, i enjoyed the shuttles rides the most. the cool and chilly air and the greens along the way made me feel so fresh ed. a kind of feeling that i can never get in KL. it was sort of an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. no worries. no track of time. no assignments. no school. nice =)
just in case you're curious of how Bukit Tinggi looks like (which i doubt u are), photos are in my facebook.

now i know. read before you post. hehe

now, at the crossroad, the question is which path is the right one? for my case, it was whether to stand up for myself or do what pleases God. it was so tempting to do the former. i mean, who wouldn't ? it's a natural reaction when we're being treated unfairly especially by people we hold so dear to our heart. however, when the two choices were thrown to me, i immediately knew i wanted to please God more than anything else and that brought me to tears because that meant that i cant have justice for myself. BUT....the image of God smiling down at me and saying "Ivy, I am proud of you." gave me an indescribable feeling that confirmed my choice further. i want my Father in heaven and the God of the universe to be happy, pleased and ultimately glorified with the path i chose.
so what about the 'standing up for myself' part you'd ask. well...God will do that for me! when? i dont know. God works in His own timing and i believe that it will happen at the right time. after all He owns time, He can take as much time as He wants and who are we to question Him right. anyway, time will tell and we'll just have to wait and see =)
3Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. Romans 5:3-5
Tuesday, March 4, 2008
ever felt like there's just so much going on in your head and your mind just decides to shut off? well...i'm in that state right now. or rather has been since Sunday. heh.
you know there's just so much one can bare, the rest are really left to God. there's nothing much we humans can do than to hope and pray that our Almighty God will carry us through.

however, if the end destination of our life is apparent, i don't see any reason why there should be fear. =)

i'll try to post some pics of my CNY soon...next week maybe. i'll try. heh
Wednesday, January 30, 2008
she's dissapointed, its ok. but she made things worse by taking it out on us. every group seem to have flaws in their work. her remarks were generally not so pleasant i would say. heh. and mind you, we still have two more presentations to go! how to survive la?
my advice to her: chill...life's too short to be so stressed up. have a break, have a Kit Kat...LOL =p
Tuesday, January 29, 2008
no i'm serious. i bet everyone has had or will have at least one person in his or her life that has painted or will paint unpleasant memories in his or her life. be it that 'best friend' you've known since forever that backstabs you for some guy or that boss who takes all the credit for the work you've done or that group of click in school who makes you feel like an outcast or that mum who favours your genius sister over you or that guy who broke your heart for what seem like the millionth time and the list goes on.
so what pulls us through these times?
well...for me is God. my stronghold and my deliverer. sometimes i wonder what would i be if i didn't have Him in my life. my answer: a resident in Hospital Bahagia, Tanjung Rambutan. lol.
i'm not saying my life is full of sorrows and hurts that i would have to enrol into a mental instituition. haha. all i'm saying is if it weren't for the faith i have in the Lord's unfailing love for me, i wouldn't view things the way i view them today. His grace and mercy has sustained me through all circumstances. and that is why i believe there's no problem too big for God. there's a saying that says " Jesus is bigger than the biggest problem you ever have." how true it is.
let me end with a passage from Psalms 23 that never fails to comfort me:
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

the lecturer has a serious problem! i'm having a migraine thanks to his super-duper "exciting" class and note that this is the same lecturer that i once said speaks at the speed of 2seconds per word. to make things worse is his "flawless" english and his constant SS (syok sendiri) remarks.
tuesday's class is gonna be such a torture from today on. good luck me.

- my faithful friend (always there to share my sorrows and joy)
- my tower of refuge (the place i run to in troubled times)
- my compass (guides me when i'm lost)
- my teacher (to tell me what's right and wrong)
the list would never end actually.

my uncle treated us to a lunch hi-tea at the Legend last sunday. it was fun. i love eating. hehe. i also love the fact that we are one family that eats without barrier. if you know what i mean. to us eat means eat. haha. no saying "eh dont eat this, too high cholesterol", "eh dont eat that, too much sugar", "eh you have high blood, dont eat seafood"...i mean you only live once, enjoy it while you can. plus it's not always that we indulge in all these right. so anyway yea...love eating with my family :) hehe.
oh..decided to go for a jog on tuesday with ivory. changed clothes, put on socks, shoes, opened the gate, walked to the park, took a stroll for like two minutes, started to jog a little. it rained. nice. -_-
all in all...its all good :)

so yea...first post of the year. hehe. lets just start with a lil recap of 2007...overall it's been an exiciting year...lots of ups and downs actually and like ivan said, it's been a year with the most things happened.
there were good times like church camp in may (it was by far the best time of the year for me) and of course the year wouldn't be complete without the bad times which i dont think i would like to share. sorry to crush your hopes though. lol :p
anyways...its a new year and that means a fresh start too :) resolutions? hmm...i think i'll pass that. you see the reason why i dont wanna have new year resolutions is very simple: i dont keep up to it! so why bother...just go with the flow la...wherever God leads. haha. oh but there is one thing that i would like to start doin this year (hopefully the zeal stays to at least march :p), that is to exercise more or to be more accurate, to start exercising. haha. i'm not complaining bout being fat or anything but figured it'll be one of the more beneficial ways to fill my time as it finally dawned on me that sleeping isn't really fruitful after all. lol
other than that...i'll be starting my 6th sem that is the second last semester next week...how exicting -_- i'm seriously not looking forward to business law...arrgh..all those penal codes just dont seem to exicite me. oh..but i do look forward to something though...Chinese New Year! lol. i know i know...it's a month away. but having something to look forward to seem to make the days past faster. hehe
oh well...can't wait to see what's God installed for me this year :) till the next post....
