to KL & Bentong

 During the Summer Break for Kingsley in August 2013,
I have spent some time with my parents
We took the KTM to KL for some shopping at Petaling Street, H&M, Kenanga Wholesale City
 Mom and Dad in KTM
This is also my first time in the newly designed KTM
 Then after that we went to H&M
for my parents to see if there are any bridesmaid clothes etc
 My sister and I
 Well, I didn't take much picture of us shopping
but this is when we are returning home
Some guys just don't know how to read signs
or really ignorant and inconsiderate
 One week later, we went to Bentong
just a day trip and for my mom to get some cheaper groceries
and to settle some of my grandparent's things
 meimei and I get to take turns to drive down to Bentong!
This is our first time :D
 Oh, these garden pictures are taken when Dad is at the dentist to fix his dentures
 Took some panda themed pictures for this trip after the influence from my friend ahahha
 And here is the busy stret of Bentong
Oh, and my panda found some panda friends too! 
 and Bentong is still using the old way of parking ticket
 This is the famous Bentong Ginger!
 This is Bentong sign.... /duh/
 And Bentong is famous to have many birds on the electrical wire line
they used to have more electrical wire line
and there will be thousands of birds!
After that, they start to minimize the wire line or they revamp it to be unseen,
then the birds gets lesser

However, it is still really alarming that during the evening,
there will be SO MANY BIRDS like thousands and millions of it flying in the sky
That you have to walk out with an umbrella,
or else there will be a big chance you get their poopoo on you
 Here's a kitty cat
 and durians
and this is my grandaunty's cat

Now i know, all cats are afraid of my panda toy. XD

Ice Skating

 It was so long ago, I forgotten how it all happens.
It is either I hope to go Ice-Skating and Charmain ask her friends together to go.
Or, they were planning to go Ice-Skating and Charmain ask if I want to go.
All I know is, I have not been skating very long,
and I hope to go skating.
Till date, I have only went Ice-Skating for 3 times!
and each time I go I have to start learning all over again.
And since I have gotten older and less daring, to learn is harder as well
because I told myself not to let myself fall - as falling is painful 
So, I just started by gliding along the side, and then after that nearer to the centre,
but the speed isn't as satisfying as last time.
I got to admit, I did everything much smoother last time.
Since we are not allowed to take handphones in the ice-skating rink,
we got to take turns to go out of the ice-skating area and take picture through the blurry plastic divider. 
 And then I met my long long time ago neighbor.
we used to play together almost everyday or every weekends.
However, I always can't remember if he is Wen Han or Wen Jie,
but I remember his english name hahahahha!
 And here is my OOTD! LOLOL 
 Then after that, I heard someone called 
'Ms. Rachel!'

I turned around and I saw these familiar faces!
 Such coincidence to meet these kids during a school holidays.
 Yup, here ends my random Ice-skating story.

But, I must really thank Charmain's friends who are also my friends - Pearl, Geraldine, Brandon
as they have been a real great companion!
Being with them makes me feel young and care-free hahahah
They are one crazy bunch of people!

Now I get why Charmain is always so happy XD

MIYF & EMUSJ Camp 2013 - SPOT ON! - Day 3

 On the 3rd day, we had our reflection time.
Well, so glad to hear everyone saying what they have learnt from the camp
and also what triggers them throughout the camp
 And, I am truly thankful for Jun's sharing
truthfully, he was having a lot in his mind - the new house, church events, work, family etc
well, for him to go through the youth camp with so many things in mind is not enjoyable at all
and thank God he submit his worries to God during the 2nd night's prayer night
and i am really glad

I have also shared regarding how it was 'like' my duty to come to youth
and it's like i have no reason, and i felt so old already.
however, throughout the camp it made me realize about how i should look for a reason, and not for someone to tell me my reason.
Previous years, i was in the committee, and i have all the reason i need to come for youth camp, was feel with zeal. and this year's was plain as I wasn't incharge of anything... but i realize, i can always take my own initiative and everyone has a role no matter you are a committee or not, you just need to be more initiative!
and then i said, i will continue to support the youth - they have really been a family to me
they are the ones that really grow up with me - other than my own siblings

I also told Wen-Jun, that I don't mind bringing my kids for youth camp next time too!
hahahaha... well, we will see if I can handle my kids next time or not XD
 Group picture
 Team blue
 Team committee, advisors and speaker!
 The new comers :)

Next youth camp? Bring it on!
Never too old ;)

MIYF & EMUSJ Camp 2013 - SPOT ON! - Day 2

 On day 2, we did activity on thanksgiving
Whereby every strips of masking tape that we tear and paste on the wall have the things that we are thankful for
 These are them on the chair with all of us,
after that we took away the chair and the one that stick on the wall is Angel haha.
 We had games in the afternoon
 Really challenging me physically hahaha
 But it is really fun!
 At night, we had prayer night
We humbled ourselves to wash each other's feet and prayed for them
 Did meaningful activities and reflect upon our life
 Making a promise to God to be the light of the world
 Writing letters to people we are thankful for and to God just to praise Him and thank Him for all He has done
 And nailing all our worries on the cross as to submit all unto Him!
We also went around to thank our friends
Telling our friends what they have done and we have never said thank you
also apologizing on the things that we have taking advantages of and we have done wrong to our friends but did not say sorry

a very memorable night, many found their smile, and many shed their tear of joy and of many feelings
and by the end of the day, all are blessed

MIYF & EMUSJ Camp 2013 - SPOT ON! - Day 1

Our youth camp theme this year was SPOT ON!
and the SPOT stands for - Serving, Praying, Offering and Thanksgiving!
So, throughout the 3 days 2 nights, we had theme talk and activities based on this theme.
 We are from the blue team and Kimberly is our team leader
This is when we create our flag!
 Some team building games as ice breaker
 holding on...
 can't hold any longer
 and there, we tumble ahahah
 our speaker, pastor and friend - Pastor Raymond

 The night activity :)
 Blinded folded and dark... just have to follow, listen and trust

 At a period of time, we have to depend on each other to guide us

 and then, we have no one else but the rope
The activity is really meaningful as the rope represent Jesus!
and the journey represent our life.
there are obstacles around that also represent the challenges in our life.
But all we need is to depend on God (the rope) to bring us through everything
and to where He intend us to be :)
