and for all the other days too. Long tiring day for me today. My first time coordinating the music&arts ministry's small teeny presentation at church. it was a simply thingy but haiyo quite a lot of work put in lah. last minute work and you'll get what you'll get. i was pushed outa my comfort zone to do this instead of being the 'tidak-apa', chillax and complacent one. but I like being in my 'zone'. =( ah well. I was the one who agreed to join the committee, so deal with it! haha (kidding)
anyway all said and done, i'm still thankful for how it'd turned out. It went pretty well so phew PTL. learnt a lot from the music maestro himself too= Jo leong!

For the past two days while having practices for my church's family night, I've been reminded that :
1) God is good, all the time
2) no matter how shaky things may start at the beginning, at the end God can turn it all around into something awesomely, remarkably good.

Oswald Chamber's advice on fear:
My assurance is to be built upon God’s assurance to me. God says, “I will never leave you,” so that then I “may boldly say, ’The Lord is my helper; I will not fear’ ” (Hebrews 13:5-6). In other words, I will not be obsessed with apprehension. This does not mean that I will not be tempted to fear, but I will remember God’s words of assurance.
I will be full of courage, like a child who strives to reach the standard his father has set for him. The faith of many people begins to falter when apprehensions enter their thinking, and they forget the meaning of God’s assurance— they forget to take a deep spiritual breath. The only way to remove the fear from our lives is to listen to God’s assurance to us.
What are you fearing? Whatever it may be, you are not a coward about it— you are determined to face it, yet you still have a feeling of fear. When it seems that there is nothing and no one to help you, say to yourself, “But ’The Lord is my helper’ this very moment, even in my present circumstance.” Are you learning to listen to God before you speak, or are you saying things and then trying to make God’s Word fit what you have said? Take hold of the Father’s assurance, and then say with strong courage, “I will not fear.” It does not matter what evil or wrong may be in our way, because “He Himself has said, ’I will never leave you . . . .’ “
Human frailty is another thing that gets between God’s words of assurance and our own words and thoughts. When we realize how feeble we are in facing difficulties, the difficulties become like giants, we become like grasshoppers, and God seems to be nonexistent. But remember God’s assurance to us— “I will never. . . forsake you.” Have we learned to sing after hearing God’s keynote? Are we continually filled with enough courage to say, “The Lord is my helper,” or are we yielding to fear?

There are so many things I want, but so little cash haha. Consumerism. :( I want things like a new pair of Converse shoes, a few nice dresses, ballet flats, A NEW HANDBAG/PURSE and another new set of jeans.
Bought jeans from Dorothy Perkins and ballet flats with my first pay. But that doesn't mean it's gona stop there. I want more! Bad bad.

It's my 2nd month at work and I kinda enjoy it. The Unspoken Rule of blogging about work is removed :)
My boss is pretty cool. Whose boss would willingly pick and send you home ? Well it's 'cause he stays in my area too haha, but still. He's an entrepreneur at a young age no kidding, and if I had applied for a business uni course I would be inspired by his work ethics =)
But anyway, it's amazing how God can place me in the most unlikely work place and how He blessed me with a nice boss and generally nice colleagues. So far I've learnt a lot about updating websites (not as easy as it seems!) and I've garnered respect for the brains behind every website built.
To a lay man creating a website may be easy-peasy but heck no! Susah ok. There's web programmers and copywriters and web designers etc who pull the strings together to create a website and from what I've observed, it ain't easy. Stress and eye pain (long hours from staring at the computer screen) are all part of the job. But pay is more than gov. sector of course, and you get to tweak your brain muscles a lot.
Working there has opened my eyes and I will never ever take the behind-the-scenes-of-building-a-website-thingamajiggie for granted.
Maybe if I graduated from uni already I can continue working there! Aha! There's a back-up plan incase all else failed ;) it's a good thought, no? Maybe a higher position la, not as an intern again.

i have this form3 friend who uses anime pictures to create her own imagination of real-life people. Like for instance there's this anime pic of a girl giving another girl a present, and she'll go "oh that's me giving ***** a present".
And she'll go on and on about it and other anime pics. I feel that she's living in her own little world and does not care a hoot about what other people think.
Which is what I need to learn.
Btw, she's half-autistic.

That's the title of the new Coldplay song! It's their first single released since 2008's Viva La Vida. I really love this band because, they are so good.
One of my unspoken rules when I'm blogging is that I'll try not to blog about work because it'll make my blog boring. But today will be an exception! I got my first pay check on thursday and I was happy, eventhough some may think, yer why your pay quite low.
The amount of money I got doesn't really matter to me, compared to the satisfaction of actually GETTING my first pay. It made me feel like I've grown up and finally started working! I also decided to use about 1/2 of my pay to pamper myself--new jeans/slacks/clothings/miscellaneous. =) Parents and bro think I'm spend drift but I think it's ok to pamper yourself with your very FIRST ever pay check.
The weekend is ending, and here comes another cycle of work.
I've finally gotten the taste of working in a private sector. ;) I've also reactivated my tumblr account thanks to my fellow colleague/church mate Joanna. One nice and sunny day she casually asked me to check her tumblr and that made me check mine and the rest is history lah.
btw, Uni results out in 2nd week of July!! Waiting for it is like waiting for the rain to fall. (quoted from Cinderella Story)
and HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIANA ONG!!!!
