I'm now 2/3 through 2013 and so far it has been an interesting journey with ups and downs. I've learnt a lot from people; the way they carry themselves, their perspectives, their actions & how they handle life issues. I've also learnt to deal different kinds of people with very different personalities. Oh speaking about ppl I've seen the true colours of many friends where some are encouraging, some are not. 

This year will also be my first time takin over from Joseph to be conductress for church choir. and to be honest I'm nervous, excited and scared. I've never lead a big group before (ok CF doesnt count it's different) and especially there're people older than me, like 10+ years. A lot of 'what ifs' and expectations from people expecting me to be on par with Jo or better because I've got big shoes to fill. If I let these get to me it can be overwhelming and can cloud my purpose of serving. :( I don't want that to happen. sigh.. I mentioned briefly to a friend in church abt me doin choir n she said I need a lot of support -.- You don't say, sister. 

I'll hold on to God's promises and have faith that thru Him all is possible. Oh one of my fav lecturers posted this as her fb status: "It is not a matter of what God can do but your faith to believe what God can do for you". :)

Happy journeying through the remaining 1/4 of 2013. We'll see how things turn out :)

P/s i've realized the beauty of flat white and am gonna ditch my all-time favourite latte!! JOin me in my new favourite.

teenage life as we know it

While listening to a conversation between two 19yr old boys, I realized I can't really tolerate their immature jokes and teenage drama. :P A summary of it was quite a lot of foul language (I cringed), joke insults thrown at each other, shallow jokes about each other's well being and their life drama which seemed so minute compared to the drama adults face. 

I never felt so old in my life. Hate to admit it but annoyance started kicking in and I had to bite my tongue from being sarcastic. Kids, what do they know about sarcasm haha. This doesn't mean I don't like talking to youth. I really do coz they keep me young & going. But for this I guess it's just the way they communicate? Duno. 
It also made me ask myself, How did I even tolerate all these teenage goo when I was in my teens?! Gah. Then again I was once in their shoes so who am I to complain. 

But still!!

Trust me when you're my age or older you would know what I'm talking about.

In the meantime I wish them all the best in their teenage endeavours and may they see the light at the end of the tunnel like how we older chaps did. We made it & now we have a new phase of life to deal with -- bigger, meaner, harsher & packs a mean punch compared to what these kids face.

Dear Joyce,

thanks for the warm catch-up today over coffee and velvet cake. It was great with laughter, stories, boys, old memories and your plans after SPM. I'm blessed by your friendship. Can't wait to see you grow and learn more each day, and finally seeing the woman you will become. :)

love always

Sorrow drips into your heart through a pinhole
Just like a faucet that leaks and there is comfort in the sound
But while you debate half-empty or half full
It slowly rises, your love is gonna drown


I want to live where soul meets body
And let the sun wrap its arms around me 
And bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing 
And feel, feel what it's like to be new

making it count.

I regret not following up with people I'm supposed to. I don't know, I guess I'm too caught up with my own social life to make time for them. I guess by the time I'm done socializing I'm already tired and have probably forgotten to keep in touch with those i know i should have. 

 I have to really make an effort to make time for them and to build that sincere friendship. I have to quit making promises that I can't keep, like say "jom let's have lunch/coffee sometime" and then not do it. Where is my sincerity in saying that. :/  Yea that's my habit, I say ok let's makan sometime and soon tak jadi. Actually that's what we adults say to each other but don't mean it. It's... the norm to say it I guess.. or how the 'system' goes. Anyway...yeah it's never to late for me to realize this & change. At this age you cannot not think about all these stuff. :0
