it is not the same

5 months ago,
Uncle Kit Yoi asked whether I could serve in any area during Sunday's 9.00am worship.
I told him I could try being a Worship Leader.

I have been a Worship Leader in Youth Fellowship,
i suppose it is almost the same ?
(no it isn't!)

3 months ago,
I saw my name listen in the duty roster.
i am excited, yet scared, yet nervous, yet clueless =/

Few weeks ago,
there is a Worship Enablers Training,
and i regretted for being able to make it.
(but i really have no choice, i need to go visit Science Center for my test!)

Yesterday,
i practice with the other worship enablers,
the pianist, Cecilia; the guitarist, Joran; the keyboardist, Samuel.

They have really help me A LOT for this Worship Leading.

and not forgetting the base guitarist, Tim who couldn't make it for practice.

thanks so much in helping me out!

Today, is the day.
Before I even walk up the pulpit my heart beating fast.
I prayed and tell God I am doing it for His glory!

yes, i am nervous,
i screw up a little.
but, i think i did well too for the first time =)
i got good encouragement and compliments from my church members.
they've given me strength to improve myself =)

because it is for the glory of God!

my church,
is where i find love of God spread through the members!
------

After church,
Karjie & i went to Reader's Corner.

we returned Charmain's book.
and I borrowed this book.
A Do-Over Novel, choice-making novel,
where your decisions lead you in this kind of role-playing novel.

The novel begins with
"you are a girl, you have a bf, you just graduate & you already lost your virginity... ..."

what kind of choice i will make in this book?
what kind of life i will have?
i've read it once already.
and i died in the end because of stroke =/
and my reputation is NOT GOOD.

i am going for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, ... readings later.

During this school holidays,
i am hoping to finish this Do-Over Novel

and read this book =)
---

After that,
Karjie went and take pictures for some application into USA.
read more in her blog next time.

---

and then we went to Subang Parade for... *stop*

Anyway, we first went to Blook.
Karjie wants to get a Maroon Dress for Yeh Ching's wedding.

and she ALWAYS, as in really ALWAYS (ok, not so always)
get CHEAP and NICE stuff!

Her maroon dress is just RM 23!

and after that,
she got herself a white cotton dress too!

---

beside Blook, is M.O.D,
they are having what i call School Holidays' Sales!
ahahahaha!

Karjie & I bought 4 pairs!
2 pairs for herself, 2 pairs for myself!
*i am beginning to love turquoise ever since karjie bought her turquoise heels!*

and then i bought this for Yeh Ching's wedding!

you all may say..
GOLD = old fashion!

NOT FOR THIS PAIR
i should say =)
---
what a productiveeee shopping today!

it's JUST NOT THE SAME with online shopping!
It's more satisfying to walk and shop around in malls!
*but i do love online shopping too*

do read my karjie's blog for her shopping!
she got really niceeeee things too!
*that's if she update LOL!*
---------

WAIT, that is not the end yet!

the real reason we went to Subang Parade is for...
...............................
...................
.............................
............
.......
...
YUMMY!
*i know it's Ben aka Hong Yuen's favourite!*

it's 31st today!
and there will be 31% discount!

karjie & i shared a 3.5kg of
Strawberry Cheese Cake & Chocolate Cookies.
SLURRRP!
after some shopping around,
it's time to sit down & rest our legs.

get something that could melt down out throats,
as a way to quench our thirst =)
by the way,
while we are enjoying ourselves,
eating ice-cream & cam-whoring..

Jia Cheng shouted from the escalator
"Rachel!"

aiyoh... kacau!

but Cheng, it was a nice coincidence meeting you there =p
today busy enjoying myself,
next time only greet you nicely hahahaha!After Baskin Robins,
we know we've bought too much!
starting to have the feeling of guilt..
we head homewards.

we walk past the information counter
and we decided to do some social work to make up to the guilt of shopping!
ahahahaha!

SHOP FOR YOUR SCHOOL!
SMK SUBANG JAYA!

i still love my school ok!
oklah.
then we go home already lorrrrrr...

oklah.
i want to go for 2nd reading in Pretty Little Mistakes.
*p/s: mel sent me the song already!

sweet delight

as i have said,
school holidays is here!

anyway, if you all still do not know..

i used to live in a 3-storey shop house,
there are many memories filled in that house,
for the whole 15 years of my life,
it is under that roof that we share our love, we argue,
and so on.

We've move into a Terrace house which was bought down by Gonggong long time ago.
daddy sell the shop away after he retire,
and now the shop new owner have finally renovated the place..

and that place is no longer called Perniagaan Tatley
but Sweet Delight =)
on Saturday (30th May),
because I just got my tuition salary,
i felt excited and i've been longing to try in this Sweet Delight.

Finally on that day itself,
i went with Elaine & Charmain.

It was really hot nowadays,
and the first thing I look into was having some cooling, tasty, thirst-quenching desert or drinks.

and i ordered Longan.

Charmain ordered Strawberry Soda which is also very nice.

and all of us shared a piece of Strawberry Waffle.
if one day, you just felt SO HOT,
and you want something simple.

this is a place you could consider =)

furthermore, the place is really comfortable.

the decorations are simple and nice.

it's just right =)

*p/s: i am hoping to tempt Ben aka Hong Yuen
because he always tempt me with his blog!
and the next place i am looking forward to is SnowFlakes =)
---

on that night,
MIYF invited panels for Question & Answer Forum Night.
there are 30 over questions!
and thank goodness bible study class is canceled,
or else there will be left over questions.

really thank all of you who made your time =)
thanks for untying our confusions' knot.

i am sure all of us benefited from this.

----
after that,
we've got a surprise celebration for my korkor's 30th birthday!
(the real date is on 3rd June)

We bring out cakes with 30 little candles!
hahahahaha!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KORKOR!

I LOVE YOU =)

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

because that is what we need =)

wheeee!
i just came back from college! =D
2 tests down, 3 more to go *sigh*

i have not been updating again, very very busy!
*typical line, typical excuse!*

another typical line of mine (or most of the students) is
"i will study today.. i promise!"
*yeah right!*

i really study last minute today!
i had the whole of last week to study, but i didn't.

i have been busy even during mid-semester break,
and when i am free, i am reluctant to do it.
*go to the ants, you sluggard!*

anyway, i am really going to study later.
i promise!

but...
blog first =p
----------
I often saw wei wen's blog saying..
"i went to bla bla bla place with A/B/C/D/.... ... letters"
and most of the time, she goes to Sunway Pyramid!
*her 2nd home, right?*

whenever i read that, i will think..
how long i have not been to Pyramid already?

and i just realize WeiWen is stress with math now,
but i am sure she likes equations!
so i came up with this...

Rachel going to Pyramid = Wei Wen going to Carrefour!
Rachel going to Carrefour = Wei Wen going to Pyramid!

LOL!!!!!

on Sunday, Charissa & Ya-Qi said they want to go Pyramid.
i was reluctant at first,
for me.. it was a far distant driving!

but i agreed.
i pump RM10 petrol.
use touch & go for parking,
and we walk around in Pyramid.

Let's go.. Charles & Keith, Forever 21, Shogun, etc etc..

walk up down left right center everywhere...
CANNOT FIND!

why is your 2nd house so big lar , wen??

we gave up, we go for the map.

We walk to where the map directs us.
We came here before larrr, didn't realize this is Charles & Keith also =/
then we go Forever 21..
on the way..
"there.. wei wen's shop. she got her inspiration here.
she & her obibi" pointing to Obaibi
"eh, this one wei wen say before.." pointing to Kitschen.
"oh, Forever 21 is here, just now we also got pass by lar!!*

wei wen, when are you free?
be our tour guide around your 2nd house!
LOL!!!

so, i have finally spend 1 1/2 hour in Sunway Pyramid!
with C & YQ!
LOL!!!!!
*i was sandwiched between twin towers*
--------------

and if you read my previous previous post & previous post,

you'll realize i asked a question in my previous previous post
why is Alexander Rybax always singing about love?

but in my previous post,
i found the answer!

and the answer is... .... ....

read my title (=
Goodnight.

I WILL STUDY!

*no time to put colours,
brother is back.. LOL!*

Saturday, May 23, 2009

i've found the answer!

*please go and read my previous post before reading this post,
or else you all won't understand what i'm talking about =)*


i wanted to stop blogging already.
but i just found out about it lor.

want to know what i found out?

what's all this about?
it's of course ALEXANDER RYBAX!

*hint:the answer is in the 2nd video





and i also found out about this Eurovision Site!
don't know whether you all know about this or not,
but it is really a cool site,
updating everything about Eurovision!

i found his biography here too =)

and, i also FOUND..

lyrics - Fairytale

Years ago when I was younger
I kinda’ liked a girl I knew.
She was mine, and we were sweethearts,
That was then, but then it’s true

I’m in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts.
‘Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed

Every day we started fighting,
Every night we fell in love.
No one else could make me sadder,
But no one else could lift me high above

I don’t know what I was doing
But suddenly we fell apart.
Nowadays I cannot find her.
But when I do we’ll get a brand new start

I’m in love with a fairytale
Even though it hurts.
Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed

She’s a fairytale

Yeah

Even though it hurts.
Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind;
I’m already cursed

(backup by rachel)
yes, i'm already cursed!

i fall in love with a fairytale!
Alexander Rybax!
loveee his music!
loveee the way he plays the violin lar!
and especially loveee his SMILE! =D

p/s: he's got that cutee blur look! hahaha!

by the way, i realize he always sing about love,
is it me think too much or it's really like that?
is he ALWAYS singing about love?
or is it that i havn't found out about other songs yet?
*mel, answer me! LOL!*

then his expressions when he is singing love songs
are so dreamy kind of look,
so deeply in love.

the more i SEE and HEAR him sing,
the more i.... .... lovehim!
*OF COURSE it is not that love lar, doink!*

and the way he plays with the violin,
it is not the woody kind of expression,
some people make playing musical instruments boring,
they've got no expression
*like me! LOL!*

the way he plays the violin,
the way he sing..
is just.....
just.....
.......
....................
just..
...
...
cannot be describe with words.




he actually sang this - All I want to do is to dream of you!
aarggghhh! *melted!!*

and, i did not dream about him last night lar! =(
but the FIRST thing in the morning,
it's him i'm thinking of!

i'm addicted to a fairytale. LOL!
---

i am posting this last minute..

because i realize...

that

i have

fallen

in

LOVE =D
.
.
.
.
.
with him =D


This is the song he sang during Eurovision's semi final - Fairytale



at first i didn't even bother to listen.
because i am SERIOUSLY not a fanatic of all these things.

but, i listened.

i fell in love. =p

especially after he won the Eurovision contest!
he got that kind of smile that is SO BRIGHT lar
because he was SO HAPPY!

and by looking at him smiling SO HAPPILY makes me feel SO HAPPY for him!


weird though,
when others is talking about American Idols,
i'm here talking about Eurovision.

oh well, sad to say,
Kris & Adam did not interest me,
where else, ALEXANDER did! =p

gotta accept the fact that different people have different interest..

i will gonna dream about Alexander singing Fairytales tonight =)
but that song is for his ex-girlfriend lar.
aiyohhhhh!
-----------------
to mel:
i super jealous lor!
you send the song to wei yiing,
you didn't send to me!

*LAUGH OUT LOUD*
-----------------
to yiing:

it's just not what it seems ...

Thanks to Mel, I found out about this Alexander Rybax,
I did not really listen to any of his music.

but the video Melanie embeded in her blog with the title - I'm yours attracted me.
I only listen to that.
and I think.. HE ROCKS! =)

BUT, i'm not a big fan. hahaha!

BUT, i would like you all to listen to his music.


--------------------------------

i went and do my assessing today.
everytime we go for assessing, Charis will buy snacks & sweets for the children.
The children will always feel so happy around her.
Despite of the food, it is Charis' warmth =)

you know, i havn't been eating snacks for a very very long time already.
so after assessing,
i went to Carrefour to buy snacks!

i bought SOOOO MANY snacks!
1 double decker
2 shakemi
1 super cheese ring
1 cheezel
2 meow meow
1 high sour
1 mentos
1 choky-choky
1 guava sweet
1 sour plus
1 dry fish
1 rocky
1 loller


yes, i want to gain weight lar!
LOL!

nolah, although i really want to gain weight
(at least weight 45kg lar !!
i want to donate bloood!!!!)
BUT, the REAL reason is of course i want to eat.
2ndly, i NEED to study! i havn't start studying!!
therefore, i need things to bite while i'm studying.

it's a little too much with ALL these snacks to study isn't it?

fear not,
Tadika Eden is going to have children's party next week.
whatever unopen can use for this coming event =)

aren't i a good planner? =p
-----------------
sick.

yes, again.

BUT, a mild one.

However, i am in fear.

BUT, i think i am getting better.

BUT BUT, it is still better to do something =)

therefore,
i bought mask!
(2 packets of 10!)

I have been sneezing around during class.
And seriously, sometimes i just didn't care to just go and wash my hands or wipe it after sneezing,
or to say i am too busy?

busy taking care of the children to be exact.

once you turn your eyes away from the children,
something will happen.

BUT, if i didn't keep my hands clean,
germs will spread.

and that makes me SELF-CENTERED!
Talking about being considerate,
talking about being child-centered.

So, from tomorrow onwards,
i will be wearing mask to kindergarten.
i don't want to spread it to the children.

Children's immune system are low.
They get sick easily.
Especially during this climax change in weathers,
this polluted environment,
this full-of-sickness world,
it is more than important to protect our young ones.

i already can imagine what will they ask tomorrow.
but it is ok, i will explain to them.
in such a way, i could also model a considerate heart =)
i love my children!
-----------------------

sometimes things is just not what it seems,
when you think it is yours, it just doesn't seem to be,
when you've finally give up,
and you do not want to think of it anymore,
it just keeps coming back to you,
it just appears infront of you out of no where.

thousands of questions flooded your mind,
trying to interpret the situation,
trying to tie confusions to make a conclusion.

but in the end,
it all come back to one solution,
there is nothing else i can do but to stay away.

furthermore, it was just mere coincidence,
and nothing more.
never appreciated & heart broken.
nothing else.

and the conclusion is,
it's just not what it seems.
it's just not what you and i think it is.
it's just not.
and so, the conclusion of this conclusion is,
i got my own life to live on.

and, i've got to live it positively and cheerfully.
because the degree of joy in MY life is decided by me!

and i decided to trust God whatever it is =)

now, that is a better conclusion =)

O Glorious L♥ve!

realize that i change my blog template again
but i guess this change will be long term now,
because i really like how it looks now =)

BUT still, i want to learn how to put in blog template lar!
(mel & wei wen, you all gotta teach me one day =p )

an apple on a withered tree,
how positive is that?
but life will just be so much better when we look at our worse situations in another perspective.

if we could live our life by saying "Praise God!" and "Thank God!"
(of course, sincerely!)
we will feel comforted in worst situations!

1 Thessalonians 5:18
"Give thanks in all circumstances ..."

because all in all,
God is above ALL.

Therefore I say, the degree of joy in your life is decided by you.
You decide whether to look at things positively or negatively,
you decide whether you want to commit everything to God, trust in God and have faith that He will carry the burdens for you.
You decide!

------------------------------

♥O Glorious Love of Christ - John W. Peterson♥


In my darkness Jesus found me,
Touched my eyes and made me see,
Broke sin's chains that long had bound me,
Gave me life and liberty!

O Glorious love of Christ my Lord Divine,
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine!
Through all my days and then in Heaven above
My song will silence never,
I'll worship Him forever,
And praise Him for His glorious love!

O amazing truth to ponder,
He whom angel host attend,
Lord of Heav'n, God's Son,what wonder,
He became the sinner's friend!

O Glorious love of Christ my Lord Divine,
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine!
Through all my days and then in Heaven above
My song will silence never,
I'll worship Him forever,
And praise him for His glorious love!

-----------------this song is written by John W. Peterson (1921-2006) who was born in Lindsborg, Kansas, and began his musical career while he was still in his teens.
His music is loved and sung around the world.
Mr. Peterson has composed well over 1000 individual songs. (John W. Peterson in his senior years)

John W. Peterson has touched so many lives, because it is so true.
How Jesus left the glorious place of Heaven and His Father's side to walk the dusty roads of Jerusalem,
and reach down into the gutters of our lives to take us by the hand and lift us out of the mud and mire of sin and wickedness.
What amazing and glorious love is this!

and so,
you decide =)

i'm young again!

OH WAIT!
i AM young lar! =p

but it has been so long since the last time i actually had fun!

as days pass by, i felt white hair growing!
yea, that's how stress i am.

on 16th May (yes! it is Teachers' Day itself),
few of my coursemate and I went for a visitation at National Science Centre.

The visitation is not JUST FOR FUN,
but on the purpose for my coming test next week.
(and also to celebrate teachers' day in a way...)

We are required to visit that place & state whatever applicable to the children.
and it is a MUST to visit.
so, there we go.
We first gathered at Charis' house.
Then we took Charis' dad's
Avanza
(and then.. past memories ....... ..... ok! whatever!)

Charlene was the driver that day.
and Mohana came from Puchong. There are altogether 10 of us who went. =) I am not going to state out EVERYTHING i do over there,
but it is seriously FUN!

fun in the cave

fun with the mirrors

fun at the outdoor educational park

::spin spin spin!::
Charlene spins!
then Xinzi got dizzy. LOL!
::cycle on top of the water::
rach tee the pro!

and now,
Xinzi's turn!

she frozen in fear! LOL!

Xinzi says:
"always bully me.. it's MY TURN!"
*evil laughs*

::walking on the water::
yours truly
LOL!

a fun day with you all ended here.
so now, during this semester break,
let's all study hard!

test is coming up =)
fun ler?
MIYF, do you all want to go to this place? LOL!


At night, had youth fellowship.
it's fellowship night.

i havn't been fellowshipping around.
maybe because i am always the one in charge
and i did not really have a friendly contact with the members.
did not really talk to them,
did not get to know them more
*GUILTY!*

but for that day,
it was really nice,
and we really had fun with each other,
joke with the members,
away from my cliques for awhile.

on my own...
nahhhh, never could be on my own,
my life without them will really screw up lar!

haahha! but i mean it,
once awhile away from my own cliques,
away from my own comfort zone,
away from where i feel i belong,
....
i will learn & experience more =)
