I just stole pictures from my mother's camera! So yeah, I once again have the inspiration to blog. Funny what pictures can do right? Come'on, don't tell me you read my blog for words. Don't think I don't know!
Anyways, on an updating note, I've got my results today! I'm minorly upset lah, but then again really thankful. My less than perfect BM dragged me down, so you know.
I know I know! I'm just being Kiasu. so help me.
But, CONGRATULATIONS to those of you who got straight A's!!! =D This includes, Xianwei,Sueann, Yenli,Sinyein,Kai Syuen, Kai Tying,Sam, etc. I can't really remember who else so I'm sorry if I've missed your name out.
So yes, I feel I must do everybody liberty by blogging about Christmas in more details. For those of you who don't know, my kakak's away so it's no holidays and parties till she comes back. sad right? But i have to admit, I am getting used to living without her. I find that I don't loose things so easily now.
This year, my family spent Christmas with the Wongs. We've known them for ages and I've known Ines and Zoee since we were in diapers. =D my family contributed some food, and well, we were cooking for practically the whole day, at least my dad was. But I have to say, the best were Zoee's brownies! omg, that girl has a gift man. I think their the best brownies I've ever tasted in my life!
That looks good!
shit! even better! :D
Can't resist it!
And the lala-ness is contagious. Note the facial expressions. :p
The presents were the fun part. we switched the two presents we were going to give Ines and Zoee. So, Ines ended up with a cook book and Zoee ended up with a sandman comic! Shoud've seen their faces. heee.
I'm home alone again! Grandma and my cousins from Singapore have already taken off to PD for the day. I think I'm a full fledged ONLY child. hah! lammeee.
After the results, my darlinh Sueann came over. We didnt go out cause, malls are really boring and packed now. Plus, none of us could stand going home right after results. I mean its pretty sad right? We lazed around and played the block tower game. quite fun okay!
So that was that, we ran out of things to talk about half way and I made sure she tried all the food at my house. I tell you ah, I need a quick way to get rid of the food without eating it!
"Aiyokks, I so cute cute worhh!"
AHHH!! Holiday homework! xD

Happy Boxing day!
Or belated Christmas, Whatever you want to call it. Talk about feeling emo lah. But first of all I must blog about camp. I mean I have to right it down right? how else am I going to remind myself of the pains of camp? :p kidding kidding.
Whoaa, it was justawesome. I really have no words to explain it. It's the first time I've come to terms with how I actually feel about myself and my life. it's the first time I've let myself accept that maybe perhaps I do need a bit of help now and then. And yeah, just so awesome.
Putting aside all the fun activities, which included digging our noses in sand, digging for impossible treassure, and finding beans in grass, The whole thing was just a real reality check lorh. I've never been to a camp where about 90% of the people in the room cried.pastor Vic does wonders I tell you!! gahh. I too cried, till my eyes were swollen the next day. How's that for powerful? :D
Even the hardy guys cried too!! That's how much of an eye opener it was. (:
And yeah, I also finally managed to socialise properly with my Nst friends. I mean, if you haven't noticed, I'm not the most outgoing in church.
So yes, Christmas!
So wonderful. Though, I must say it didn't really feel like Christmas. With my Christmas tree not being put up and all. The closest thing I had to it was my piano and a caroling book. But anyways, my highlights were singing 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' with my parents at the top of our lungs in the car. good times. (:
We even wound down the car windows to wish a couple and their little kids a merry Christmas!!
But then again, Christmas is so commercialized nowadays. We forget what it's actually about. The raw truth of it is, alot of us take if for granted. think of it! Jesus was born to die a horrible death.FOR US. Idiots, liars, sinners, ungrateful twits. And he knew this too.
Anywho, I'm going to get to bed! I'm feeling so lazy to blog about the party. Just go click on Graciela's link if you wanna read about it.
lack of inspiration i guess? (:

The world. What is it coming to?!
You WILL be remotely horrified.
Sigh, Lately, I've been hit by a huge brick wall.- Reality. Did you know that so many things we eat have been, POISONED!
*que jaws theme song*
Oh yes, Everything we eat now is either processed, soaking in fat,or injected with some chemical or artificial something.
Now, this ought to explain the rise in cancer and obesity. And Yes!McDonalds is a huge culprit.
Power to Morgan Spurlock.(YES, i've looked it up and spelt it right. -.-") who exposed the horrible reality of our favorite fast food restaurant in the world! Most common too, It pops up EVERYWHERE. Like lalang.
Those of you a bit blur on what I'm talking about, Morgan came up with a documentary, where he ate McD's everyday for a period of time. From an extremely healthy state, he became fat, addicted, and started having problems with his heart.
What's the BEST thing on the McD's menu? (besides the ice cream, heck, how much more unhealthy can ice cream get?)
YES, the crunchy, oily, salty,- FRIES.
But be very afraid!
It's still alive!!! No wonder you feel so bloated even a day after you had mcD's. I mean, Look at itt!!It's probably sitting there making small talk with your intestines. I don't know about you, But i do wonder what it's doing in my stomach. O-O
But not like we eat it everyday right? so you know, I guess the occasional French fry is a-okay.
Luckily, alot of people are becoming more aware of the health risks at stake. Some of them are even prepared to sue McD's for providing their customers with food that have no nutritional values whatsoever. I don't think this should be the case though, Even though they are providing food that are not healthy, we should be the ones who say NO to it, or eat in moderation.
As much as I'd like to blame Mcdonalds for all the health complications, I don't think they are the ONLY cause of obesity. They may be one of the main ones, but certainly not the only.
based on some research... Did you know that,
POPCORN contains lots of saturated fat. How much? nutritionist state that we need about 23grams of saturated fat everyday. a medium serving of popcorn contains about 2 times or 3 times the required saturated fat! who knew corn cobs in sugar and butter could be that bad. I even though it was healthy, afterall-"It's just corn marh!"
A SMARTY, little pieces of chocolate coated in sugar, takes about 2 rounds around a football field to completely burn off.
HAH, it'll be a while till i eat my next smarty. xD
Now you have something to ponder on!

I read the news paper today and rediscovered shocking news! It's an article about global warming and rising temperatures. Did you know that alot of islands near indonesia are literally being engulfed by water? I mean swallowed and submerged already!!
Climate change may wipe some Indonesian islands off map
By Sugita Katyal and Adhityani Arga
JAKARTA (Reuters) - Many of Indonesia's islands may be swallowed up by the sea if world leaders fail to find a way to halt rising sea levels at this week's climate change conference on the resort island of Bali.
Doomsters take this dire warning by Indonesian scientists a step further and predict that by 2035, the Indonesian capital's airport will be flooded by sea water and rendered useless; and by 2080, the tide will be lapping at the steps of Jakarta's imposing Dutch-era Presidential palace which sits 10 km inland (about 6 miles).
Do you know how retarded all this is!!?? We have an earth lah people, a very nice one I might add. AND the only one we have to. Why are we flushing it down the drain??? Do you want your kids to huddle in the middle of continents and contries like a herd of zebras avoiding the rising tide? Do you seriously want all of us to bloody drown?????
sigh* enough said, I am an enviromental junky and I hate to see our wonderfull earth go down to the drain. Be scared out of your minds, because life doesn't last forever, so we might as well make it count. Even though the Elgor dude who made the documentary "An Inconvinient Truth" only did it to secure a vote for something-or-rather, I'd like to believe that somehow he DID believe in all his research. Because the truth is, most politicians aren't worried about the enviroment. hmm.. lets see...
well, can you still have ellections without an Earth? hmmmm.... tough question right?
Save our planet!!
Let's not let it happen! :(

Another one of those days...
Where, personally I feel like I have so much to say but can't write it in words. I'm in a deep thinking mood so prepare to be bombarded with thoughts. =)
You know, writting my entries for blogs have always been a bit hard for me. Remember what i said about having so many things to blog about, but can't possibly write them down? Yeah well, I think I've realised why. Because sometimes, I'm so occupied with how I would sound when I write this or that, that I in the end leave my mind in a mess of thoughts, their ready to come spilling out, but the thing is, HOW would I sound if i did?
Thoughts are like raw ores of jewels, their innitially beautiful inside, but when you dig it up and try to pollish it and make it into things that appeal to you, it looses its originality and occasionally it's sparkle. Some bits get chipped off in the process of cutting and shaping, and in the en your left with a refined jewel, but to the price of a few bits a chips missing from the original. OR you could end up with something ugly and spoilt, because you can't make up your mind on what to do with your ore OR you won't even bother to shape it at all, because all the refining is too much work and far too much trouble. This is when you get confused, and your thoughts end up in knots.
So, I'm going to be blatantly honest today. :D No reshaping my sentences to make me sound simpler or sophisticated. Because the truth is, I do think alot. And sometimes a bit too much for my own good.
I'm just back from reading Keith's blog. Initially, I was going to be traditional. Read cbox comments, reply, and go to sleep. But after that little visit, I'm suddenly so inspired to say what I mean. Because I think what He's said is really downright honest and totally genuine. It's like the raw ore put up for display.
So yes, I'm following up on my tag, from Keith. =D But you should eventally get around to reading his. after or before you read mine. here's the link! http://keithwoo.blogdrive.com/
*drum roll please*
What Does Jesus Mean to Me?
Alot of people think this is a religious driven post full of bombastic words like 'ressurection' and 'crucification' and well you get it lah. I can't blame you, because the world has a strict first impression on it. Sort of like, sunsets.- romance and victoria's secret.-sexy. BUT What if the sunset were happening in the middle of a war? It can't be romantic amidst all the blood and screams right? and who said sunsets only appear for lovey-dovey couples kissing along a sandy beach? or Victoria Secret underwear on an old grandma (no offence to them) bless them! :) But seriously, deffinately not sexy right? ._.
So yeah. wow, I don't know actually. I'd love to say that Jesus is the most important thing in my life, but honestly I don't think Its been like that. I've known him for so long, and he's been my best friend. Scratch that, I don't even think I'm worthy of sayin that. That's what I tell myself sometimes, and I know it's wrong. Because he always forgives us no matter how many times we've drifted.
Jesus is the only person I can put my trust in completely. I tell him how I feel about anything, sort of like an imaginary friend who isn't imaginary. and he's thought me that placing too much trust in earthly things will only lead to dissapointment.
Reading through Keith's blog, I've als came to realise one thing too. Quote:
"Jesus is like my food. I love to eat as you all know, and I totally enjoy searching for things that flatter my taste buds. One day as I was fasting, I realized how much I loved food, almost more than Jesus sadly to say."
It's taken this sentence for me to realise that in many times or rather, I've loved my computer and my friends and things like that more than Jesus. Sometimes you can just get so tied up in so many things, involved in so many relationships in general, and you forget yourself for a while. In my case I'll get sad or upset about something, and forget that the real purpose in life for me is to find myself and ultimately please Him in everything whatever I may do in the future.
I honestly think it's very sad people think of church and chritianity as a cage. Heck, even I feel it too sometimes. It's like you really relaly really want to try or do something, but you know is wrong. Then you start blaming God for your fustration because you didn't get to do this and that. Most people don't want to give that free spirited part of their life up, and that's why Jesus takes a slam.
But, We forget one thing. and I constantly tell myself this everytime i find myself in that situation. Jesus is on OUR side. He wants us to be successfull, to be loved, and he wants everything good in life for you. Which is why he is the heavenly father. A dad only wants what's good for his son/daughter right? so in that same contacts, even though some of the rules Jesus has laid down for us are tight, he only wants what's best for us. And even more so, because our normal dad's can blunder and make mistakes, but God's advice and rules are perfect and are never wrong. Question? If someone pointed a gun to your head, and asked if you believed in Jesus, would you say no or keep your faith?
I'd like to believe I'll let whoever the guy is shoot me. Because i know deep down in my gut, I love Jesus more than life, even though I may put things before him. All the small things you do lead you to your final decision, but its the overall faith and loyalty that really matters. I know I can be pretty far away sometimes, but the fact is, I know down in my gut I do believe. And I'll die for it. Even now I'm a little skeptical, and it's true, decisions like that can't be made on the spot, they have to be built in a lifetime. If you've never really thought about it, then maybe it's time.
So ultimately, Jesus is just my rock. and literally too. He's there through thick and thin, and even though you get a tattoo, join a cult, start your own religion or whatever you do, he's always watching. Even when you're in the mother of all messes, He'll still be watching, because he'll never leave or forsake you.
And you know what? In the brink of all this, He's helped me let go of so many negative feelings in my life. Negative feelings are like toxic. They gather up and eventually poison you from the inside ruining everything in your life you think matters. And I am honestly very thankfull for him for that reason. The truth is, would most deffinately NOT be the same person I am today, if it were not for him. Credits to Jesus! =)
