Saturday, April 30, 2011 all you need.

Today's test was surprisingly okay; I thought I won't be able to finish 300 questions in an hour. Not only that, I managed to shade the answers in 30 minutes. ;) Cheh wah.

One thing I inadvertently learnt from this test was to look deeper into myself and to see what kind of person am I. No really, I'm not joking. They asked questions like:

-Would you like to head a project?
-Would you speak your mind and not care if it offended anyone?
-Do you get restless when alone?
-Do you get swayed by other people's opinions?

And so on and so forth. But of course, they're all in BM.

Actually it was a good psychological test. I'm glad I sat for it because it reminded me of what sort of person I am, of my characteristics etc. It was a good self-reflection and I thank God for that. ;)
More like a wake-up call.

Life's too short to worry about what other people think of you. It's their opinions only, not facts.

Can't wait for my bro to be back. He's finishing uni soon and will be back in May! I do miss him.

TESL test, tomorrow! I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Plus I have decided to dust my driving license and pick up my mojo to drive once again after a year of M.I.A on the road.

It's time. To learn. How to park a car.

Here is love, vast as the ocean...

I'll be going for a test this Saturday! It's a psychological test that will determine whether I'm sane enough to be with normal people.

No lah it's to determine whether a uni course I applied, TESL(teaching Eng as a 2nd Language) is suitable for me. If I ace this, I'll be interviewed.

Kind of nervous, but trying not to. Don't wanna screw this up. :)

Concoctions. Like how yesterday I tried a concoction of sorts that tasted really good, totally changing my perspective of a certain something that I always viewed sceptically.

ask me personally lah. byebye it's raining with thunder/lightning and I gota go or my dear modem will die.

The hills are alive...

...with the Sound of Music.

Guess what?

They're coming! to Malaysia! Not the real cast lah with Julie Andrews etc 'cause they're all in their 50s and Christopher Plummer's like...70something years old?!

Anyway "The World's Best Loved Musical" is coming Malaysia on the 21st-26th June 2011 (mark your dates) at Plenary Hall KLCC. Although they aren't the real cast, but still this musical is considered one of the BEST musical shows in the world, apart from West Side Story which I watched it too when they came here(and they were VERY good).

I must go no matter what because I love Sound of Music !! Like a lot. ;-)

Check out the link here!

I'm excited already! Anyone wants to go with me?? ;)

Sleep deprivation

I think I might have a mild case of insomnia. I don't know I'm just saying, 'cause once I touch the pillow I won't sleep straight away, and I end up sleeping at 12+am AND wake up at 7something AM. Once I wake up I can go back to sleep no more.

This gives me a headache, which I have one now sigh. Life of a bummer I suppose. =/

Today's easter performance went well! Praise God that everything went smoothly. I heard some feedback about our miming that it was good, and all of their eyes were fixed on our gloved hands :D

Phew. Now that that's done, I'm back to bumming and being a sloth.

Speed of Sound..

My body clock is really funny. No matter what time I sleep, early or late, I will definitely wake up at 7 something in the MORNING. Like yesterday, I slept at 12.10am and woke up at 7.21am today! But of course I went back to sleep, but it's not the same anymore. I can't sleep well anyway.

The point is, why am I waking up so early?! For these few days it has been like this. :'( And I woke up today with an on-and-off headache. And my neck feels stiff and strained.

Tomorrow I have to be up by 5.45am because it's Easter and service starts at 7am. Plus mum needs to go early to prepare communion. So this means that I have to sleep early tonight, like at 9.30pm.

The thing about me is once I rest my head on the pillow, I don't immediately doze off to dreamland. I'll be thinking of all the stuff that had happened or could have happen. I'll conjure up silly thoughts or fit in the missing pieces of the day's events in my mind. I'll have a continuous string of dreams that will fade off once I sleep but will reappear again in dreamland. I dream every, single, night.

Yep, I'm a dreamer and I admit it. There's nothing wrong with that.

Are you like me too?

LiFe in Technicolor


When will my life begin?*

I've been listening to the Tangled soundtrack lately and I loved it! Mandy Moore has a very sweet voice. I'm surprised how I could have overlooked her haih. As for Flynn Rider,he (I have to say it again), is absolutely dashing. And so is Zachary Levi. Both are handsome! I hope Zach comes to Msia, which is highly impossible.

Easter is this Sunday and we have two more practices to go! Can't believe it's so fast. After 1month (i think) of practicing, I hope it's good!

We're performing a hand mime based on the song At The Cross. There'll also be six monologues by different characters after Jesus' death. The monologue part to me is pretty difficult. It's actually a sombre, solemn moment, and if you're in it you have to churn out all your sad/angry emotions and really believe like it's real. Tough.

I feel like I'm losing my mojo for blogging gah. whatever lah I don't care.

God is love and He loves everyone.

*Title of this blog is a song from Tangled, Rapunzel's solo. I can relate to this song in a way 'cause it says 'When will my life begin?' and it got me thinking when will MY life begin in uni/ in 2011/my new adult life, no more TeenVille.

God is Love

"A precise and thought-provoking song about the misconceptions involving God".

Monday, April 18, 2011


I know I'm a tad too late but I've just finished watching Tangled! A very brilliant show that made my tear ducts got to work. And for the record Flynn is dashing. Very. It made you think I can't differentiate between reality and fantasy huh. But he is very very handsome you would be tangled by him too. If only he is real!

So lately I've been going back to the 1980s/the era of our parents and I learnt that all of the music artistes were really good. Even better than today's music scene. Where on earth have I been?! Marvin Gaye, Tracy Chapman, Stevie Wonder, Queen etc. They were legends for sure to leave such an impact until today.

An epic discovery. :)

These Stuff.

Hearing my parents talk about politics kinda sparked my interest in it too. I've never really looked properly at Msian politics 'cause I thought it was for the adults only. Adults and their politics, they used to say.

But the recent Swak elections stirred something in me, igniting a fire that was never there. How? I don't know.

That fire has just started, and I'm determined to keep it alive. Yeah, I have another year 'til I'm 21, and I'll be able to vote!

And I'll make sure I vote for the right party.

Paul McDonald was voted out from A.Idol and I am sad. He's my favourite contestant because of his unique, distinct voice and his individuality which made him stand out from the other contestants.

:( that's all right, I'm sure he'll stand back on his two feet and make some incredible music that will be a revolution to mankind.

Sigh still sad that he got out.

At least there's still Jacob, Stefano and James.


so cute, please watch!
I used to watch this when I was ... 17 years old. =)
But too bad it doesn't show on tv anymore.

It's April now and I still have people asking me questions like:
1) so what are you doing now?
2)what uni's you applied to?

It gets a little tiring but, oh well if that's what starts a conversation, then might as well just go along with it.

And make the best out of it.

Without feeling robotic.

zz-zz-zz. *monotone*hello i am tienmie and i am a robot. A fee of 50cents is required per question asked. Questions regarding the numbers 1 and 2 above shall not be entertained. Thank you for your kind co-operation. Shall we meet again, I will shake your hand and say 'goodbye'.

My eczema is back and I don't like it. This time it started on my right leg with some small red spots clustered together and it's itchy. The more you scratch it, the more enlarge the rash will be. :((((( This is the second time I'm having it. Sad sad... My type of eczema is triggered by an allergy which I also don't know what. I suspect it's dust as the first time was ALSO dust. grr.

I just applied a layer of skin cream on it given by my doctor last year. I suspect the cream has small amounts of steroids!! makes me gain weight T.T

Please heal me from eczema Lord, before it spreads! sigh...

A purple robe

A purple robe, a crown of thorns,
A reed in His right hand;
Before the soldiers' spite and scorn
I see my Saviour stand.

He bears between the Roman guard
The weight of all our woe;
A stumbling figure bowed and scarred
I see my Saviour go

Fast to the cross's spreading spam,
High in the sunlit air,
All the unnumbered sins of man
I see my Saviour bear.

He hangs, by whom the world was made,
Beneath the darkened sky;
The everlasting ransom paid,
I see my Saviour die.

He shares on high His father's throne,
Who once in mercy came;
For all His love to sinners shown
I sing my Saviour's name.

No, I did not weave this out haha. It's actually a song, but it could be seen as a poem too. A very meaningful song that the congregation sang during Good Friday/Easter some time ago.

Do read it! :-)

Have you heard of such a thing as L.O.S, meaning Lack of Sympathy? Like some people think that getting sympathy from others is a way of getting attention?

Sounds weird right. But I know a friend who does that. I'm not angry or whatever, and why should I be anyway? I'm just not comfortable that she took advantage of everyone's sympathies to sort of gain attention for herself.

Very sly indeed! *shakes head and tuts*
On a much MUCH sunshiney note, I got my sunglasses already! Whee. I'm happy, and I shall use it everywhere I go.

Enjoy your weekend, folks. Thanks for reading.



Then sings my soul
my saviour God to thee
How great thou art, how great thou art...

I've took Him for granted, disobeyed Him, disappointed Him, made Him angry, but yet He forgives. Yet, he still loves me for who I am, no matter how many times I've failed Him.

I am so, very thankful :')

She trembled as the unforgiving wind blew with gusto.
Standing under the dim rays of the lamp post that provided no warmth, she waited. And waited.
Time slowly ticked away the hustle and bustle of the city, until she remained the sole occupant of 14th Street.

And still he did not show up.
Poor little thing, waiting for someone that has left the face of the earth 6 months ago.
But she doesn't know.

My attempt at creative writing failed! :) But oh well, for the fun of it lah.

Remember these guys ?

Goo Goo Dolls.

I wonder what happened to them.

I always liked their songs, and still do, especially the bridge of every song where there would be the strumming of the guitar or with an orchestra like in Iris. <--the bridge part was the whole gist of it, like a climax of the song.

Happy walking-down-memory-lane Day.

Sorry Ms. Jackson

So April has finally come. We're 1/4 through the year and so far it has been great. No stresses in my life so far and I'm thankful for that, but there were decisions to be made; decisions like serving and courses to choose. I'm glad that's done now, and I'm happy where I am; happy with the ministry I'm in now and happy with the courses I've applied.

This year has been so relaxed compared to twenty ten. Around this time last year, CF camp just passed and in came preps for Cf Easter/Good friday, not to forget piled-up studies that needed to be done before mid-terms in May. Busy busy, but it's all memories now :)

Easter's 'round the corner, three more weeks in fact. Practices are on as per usual, while having fun in between.

Ok great news! I'm getting new sunglasses tomorrow, a present for doing well [in my standards] for STPM.

Cost: RM500. Spensive much?
The shape's like this, just that it's black and the lenses are two-toned grey-in-colour. :D

Have a bagus weekend.

*the song Sorry Ms. Jackson is by Outkast.
