His mysterious ways...
His ultimate plan...
His odd timing...
i have learned to have faith over uncertainties,
i now need to learn patience for His promises.
Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
the year of 'waiting' shall come to pass.
for now, I'll dread each day
one day at a time

woke up 6.10 (no thanks to my useless alarm clock) ...Phillip called saying that he's reaching in 5 minutes.
the day after...
luckily i slept at 3.30 ( of course i still thought that this was to my advantage at that time) , i had taken a late late shower before going to bed. thus, only having to take my jacket and fix my hair before i rushed down to send off Esther to Melbourne at KLIA.
Anna, Zhen Wei, Liang, Daniel and Timothy were already at the airport when we arrived. they had sent off Eugine (another CF member) before we arrived.
others that came included some of Esther's secondary and pre u friends.
everyone seems to be leaving...and Esther is one of the harder ones to say goodbye to.
anyways, after sending her off... i met with some of my Victoria University coursemates for buffet dim sum breakfast and latter accompanying some of them in pyramid.
by the time i reached home, i was already doubting that i could even make it for prayer meeting alive. funny... i sacrificed that extra hour of nap and just headed to prayer meeting and christian fellowship anyhow. it was Worth it!
in prayer meeting, we sang '( Jesus lamb of God) You are my all in all ' together... some were even harmonizing to the song. i was amazed. rarely you see a passionate bunch actually having pleasure in Him... desiring Him more than anything else. which should be the way.
i heard the Cf committee is considering me being a KG leader.
well, i've said yes after praying about it...
taking this step of faith to grow in Him as well relying on Him more than ever.
For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
i slept at 11 sharp. i wasn't saying it for fun... i was indeed exhausted on that day.
to be honest, i can hardly recall V day already...due to a handful of other things that happened after that pointless day itself.
on Valentine's Day.
on "Wednesday", i attended the 3rd day of Monash orientation then went out with Riny and Guo Loon to kill time... valentine's day specifically. we had a simple late-dinner after One Utama
( definitely wrong place at the wrong time! ...can you can imagine the HORROR of all them couples being mushy everywhere!?)
anyways, while i was walking around one utama... i got offended ( this doesn't happen often) when i least expected it.
i was asking a 'pleasant looking- coke sipper' whether she knew where Mark and Spencer was and guess what she replied?!
"no... and this is not a information counter. "
my normal reaction would usually be " that wasn't necessary... thanks... for nothing ! and maybe even rubbed the fact that she was alone on V-day in her face. who knows.
but i don't know what was with me on that day. i actually apologized and felt embarrassed at that moment...
when i paused and thought back of that incident, i prayed for HER instead of feeling mistreated or humiliated in front of my friends. a sense of peace came to me immediately and i became calmed.
i believe it was God's grace and presence being upon me. like i said, i normally handle these kind of situation differently.

its rare that i spend my time with my fellow Christian fellowship brothers and sisters...
one of the reason for that was because of my cell group after CF as well as being the usher ...which never gave me the opportunity fellowshipping and getting to know them better.
today was the farewell party for Esther. an ex-AUSMAT course mate and CF member..
She's the most pleasant girl i know and has truly been a blessing to me.
the little things she do and simplest word of encouragement she says would just give me the strength to go through the day.
her wide smile and enthusiasm are contagious ...
moreover, she has a genuinely beautiful soul. a wonderful friend to sum it up.
though she's not into hugs, we usually have our cute hand shake and high fives.
*smiles* i'll definitely miss that.
anyways, after saying goodbye and giving her our last high five...
a few of us (from CF) went to have a drink at WILLIAMS.
Timothy, Daniel, Gideon, Steven, Vincent and I had the best time together sharing sick and lame jokes. but yea, at least we knew our boundaries. great fun.
I'll be sending Esther off to Melbourne on Thursday again...
gosh. I'm already starting to miss her.

when a wonderful day is waited upon and greatly anticipated, one's expectation of that day itself should be no less of being 'Glorious'.
on the other hand, a day which everyone expected that it'd be gloomy can be literally painful to go through.
its not that hard to guess which day i just went through.
I knew since middle of last year that many of my peers would be leaving to Australia to further their studies, thus the endless parties and time spent together.
it's a bond i rarely experience. the bond where every individual in 'our' group together share.
we sent off Chee Hau and Kit to Melbourne last night. together with their familes, we say our goodbyes and wish them journey mercy.
reminiscing all the good times we had together, i can only wish them the best and move on looking forward towards better things in the future.

it's been quite some time since i posted an entry about a movie because i was tired of slamming most of the movies i watched.
stranger than fiction
but this time, the movie ' stranger than fiction' did not disappoint.
a mix of British humour, witty comic, 'friday nights light' sound-ish soundtrack, sadistic-thought provoking drama. oh yea, lovin' it!

I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. ~Abraham Lincoln
i feel the same way.
