never liked seasons like this

i've been feeling sick-ish since friday. it's like one day i feel like i'm gonna fall sick then the other i dont. the thing is i only feel sick when i'm at home. i guess my mum and sis contributed a lot to this...they practically contaminated the whole house especially the room. oh and the car too. ugh...

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 :)

a time off would be do some help

the newspapers and news are getting insanely boring. every page you turn to it's bout politics and almost half of the time the news is talking bout politics. why cant these ppl get a life? is it that difficult to just for once not get on each others' nerves?

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.

wow..it's been a while since i wrote a long post. lol

Josh Harris #2

ok so i dont really have like a sequel of this to put numbering to my posts. anyway, i'm done reading I Kissed Dating Goodbye and considering that i'm not a reader, reading a book in itself is an achievement what more finishing it :p

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.
