why must it be that someone has to be in the wrong?
why must 'not understanding' be known as 'doubting'?
why must a fight always end up being hurt?
why must a quarrel always end up in tears?
why must the word 'sorry' be part of two?
why must you never ever say 'break up'?
why must we suffer for our mistakes?
why must we have a past?
why must we love?
God knows why.

when the perfect is far from perfect

I am excited the more I think about how near I am to a new year. A new year where I will be back to the marketplace, a new environment and new students. That itself is rewarding enough. And of course a goodbye for now, to my 21 years of studying ( including kindergarten ) I love my students. Everyone of them, even though I have forgotten most of their names, but not the faces. I want to be back to work again. The menace is gone after a week of fire-fighting it, and for now, I shall bury this bad woman into the abyss of darkness before I can think of charity and compassion. My heart is so much lighter now. She was never meant to be in my picture of life.If not for her, life would not be like this now. if not for her. yes. if not for her.we wil not be one piece of funiture short next time! Go away, I so look down on you, Shoo. Misfortunes are aplenty, I hate to agree. There is still one piece of bad news in my heart now. But since God has willed it, God will look to it. I can only trust. I wish I can be a tad more candid about my reality, but my every word is really to protect the ‘plaintiff’ of each life case. So I cannot really reveal what has been going on. Pastor Philip Huan noted 2 checks about discerning God’s will. 1) The Surrender Check , and 2) The Blessing Check. I am thinking about it. How much can a diamond ring be actually a positive impact on others’ lives? It seems so dumb to even think of it as a blessing. Surrender, God- I surrender it to you. Don’t give me a stone. Give me wisdom. I am so warring against the abstract within me.Even my boyfriend has a pseudonym of Somebody.

okay, finally i downgraded my phone to this nokia prism phone 7500. it's simple, i like it. life's meant to be simple.

a sunday- how now shall we live?

today i was so tired on the way to tuition that i probably slept on few peoples' shoulders.

but i really love the sermon today, it speaks to me in a way that cures the itch of the flesh.the 3 foundational stones of lifestyle 1) satisfaction 2) security 3) significance.. we all succumb to these 3 stones for a definition of our identities in this life. to have the greatest satisfaction out of an exotic holiday, out of our luxury cars and branded tai tai handbags.satisfaction even from our own partners and best friends. we save to have security, we invest to have a better future, we earn more so that we can do more than survive. we want to be somebody, at least to be recognised for our little efforts, we want to make a difference and an impact, we want to be loved, we do not want to be written off the track of history.

however, the bible speaks more volumes of truth for these 3 foundational stones; and we all find ourselves trapped in this guilty net of foolishness.

in looking for satisfaction, we cannot be passively consuming without compassion. God champions the poor. God gave us the ability to work not for money, not to impress, but to share.
"He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.' epesians 4:28

in finding security, beware of possessions without peace. when is the last ostentatious good that you bought that you are so worried that you will lose it, scratch it or spoil it? what true value is there in it? that you are hugging it in your dreams and thoughts? it may be a car, a branded something. isnt it, at the end of the day, bought to staisfy some incurable want within, that serves little value ultimately? why build treasures here that you cannot take away?
"Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys." luke 12:33

in gaining significance, beware of status without substance. it is self-explanatory. why blow ur head with a hat too big? build urself within and do not seek the temporal.
"He said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight." luke 16:15

this is not said to unpack some truths that slaps one heard to his/her conscience. but to teach us: How now shall we live?
-increase your expenditure much more slowly than your income
-periodically deny yourslef the pleasures of life. (it is not about having deprived lives)
-budget as much for charity as luxury
-make as many mission trips as holiday trips (do something significant in your trips overseas!)
-give recklessly every now and then (don't be a stingy poke)
-maintain a priority relationship with God

where do you find wisdom in your living? is it from intellectual books or peoples' lives? the bible is one book,inspired by GOD, that you can find both intellect and testimonies of peoples' lives -- that is true wisdom within.

the jang-jang week

apart from what the pictures can tell- that i really had an enjoyable week, i did it again this week. my temper flew at a level that cannot be explained plainly by the word "stressed" but i am really pissed with the way things are revolving around. they are always running couter to who i am and what i think and do. the crossver to 25 is not significant without these learnings through time. i have endured the superficiality, the facades of kindness, the unprofessionalism,only to discover some simple life truths: 1) everyone is selfish 2) everyone longs to be loved 3) everyone wants their borthday to be remembered 4) everyone feels the need to have friends. the inanity of life just whimsically made a fool of me.

God saved the day

changes.. there are quite a mouthful these days. first, it must start with i'm turning 25 in about 2 days' time; Somebody got a car; I'm flying off in one and a half month.

since we all live at the edge of the precipice, i reckon that those whose souls are broken turn either insane, or become totally devoted to God.

i just drove Somebody's car. it has been a long time since I last drove. The shadow of crashing fear still hangs like a sceptre, haunting the present.

i just saw THE ONE, hope it is really THE ONE.

i m so looking forward to.. my birthday!!!
