The last Sunday of the month

I don't know why I felt a little dizzy this morning. It's not headache as it felt kind of different. I guess it has got something to do with the lack of sleep.

September will be here in two days' time and I am very much afraid when the 5th comes. I will just try my best and do what I can and leave everything else in God's hands. All will definitely be well if I have faith in God.

Today was the last Sunday that we can see Jess and Nicole in church so we snap some pictures before they leave for England.

Everyone looking good

Last picture before we meet again in the virtual world

Take care and have a safe journey back home. All the best in everything, Jess and Nicole!


I finished my half of the ice-cream. Can I have your share, Eunice?

Feeling lazy AGAIN

Ignyte meetings for the past few weeks have been fun with the addition of two new members, Jessica and Nicole. They were on their summer holidays in Malaysia (which has summer all year long with some rain=P). Time flies past us so swiftly that it's time for them to fly back to the west next week. I will miss you both!

Jess and I

We are so lucky to have Facebook and MSN today, enabling us to keep in touch 24/7 regardless of what time zone we are in. Interaction between people can never be easier.

Feeling lazy to go back to college tomorrow. I just want to sleep in this kind of cool weather. Help me get rid of the lazy chromosomes, people. If only that's possible.

Dad's gone to Vietnam to eat some disgusting (exotic) food. Poor snakes. Poor chameleons.

Dog killers are not human since humanity is not a part of them.

Assignment questions are still not here yet although it's the end of Week 2. I am happy and a little stressed at the same time. Happy because I can relax for another week and stressed because this means that I will have shorter duration of time to complete them.

Humans are imperfect, a truth that no one can deny. However, the flaws within the imperfection of humans can be so hideous that it shocked me a little. People can be so cruel. I heard a story from a distant neighbour this evening (while I was taking Crystle out for her daily walk) about how his two dogs were poisoned a few days ago/yesterday. They usually barked loudly but do they deserve to die just because they were acting naturally like dogs? It's not our right to take away the lives of another because we are all God's creation and only He has the power to control all things. Even we do not deserve the right to take our own lives. So why do the heartless people think they have the right to take away lives, whether they are just animals or not? It is still murder! Just because they cannot commit murder to another human doesn't mean that they can do whatever they like with other people's pets.

I know some of you might think, "Hey, what's the big deal? It's not even your pet. Just chill."

I have this soft spot for animals so there's no way I can be ignorant about what is happening around here. Crystle might be the next victim if there is really someone who is crazy enough to poison every single dog in the neighbourhood.

To cool off the heat that is building in this entry, here is a picture of the twilight sky I snapped two days ago. Simply serene.

Once again, I marvel at God's creativity. I thank the Lord for each passing day that I am still alive and well amidst the terrifying virus of H1N1 spreading around.

Psalm 91 is so appropriate and useful to keep our minds at peace at this period of transgression.

Psalm 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [a]

2 I will say [b] of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

First week

The first week of the new semester is over just like that. I love Management Accounting. I really do. I guess it has something to do with my loss of touch with numbers for such a long time that when I finally meet them again, I can't help feeling nostalgic. Haha, that's a word too great to describe it but I could not think of another word.

I surprise myself at times. I have agreed to join debate. What made me said 'yes' at that moment, I didn't know. I just felt like I have to oblige and it left me no choice. I am pretty stressed up about it since I am not the articulate kind and the thought of debating gives me shivers.

On Tuesday, I went to the optometrist to order a pair of new specs. I was thinking of replacing the chipped lens but I ended up getting my eyes tested to make a new pair. I think I will need some time to get use to my new look later. On the brighter side, my hyperopia has decreased! One day, I would have a 20/20 vision in my right eye. 125 more to go!! It had decrease by 75 so far these four years but my myopic eye had increased by 50. Sigh. It's never going down. =(

My grandma is still having the opinion that I am studying Hostel Management. An extra 'S' makes a big difference.

Last day for relaxation

Okay, so the trip to Bukit Merah is cancelled due to Mr. H1N1. I was anticipating that trip and now I have to stick to my usual itinerary on Saturday. Not a bad idea, though. I can give the youths at church a surprise visit since everyone thinks I won't be around.

I am having a slight flu now and I hope it's the type that come and pass as usual. I don't want more symptoms of the dreadful pandemic.

Miss Rachel sent me a message informing about the commencement of class tomorrow. Today is a day I must truly treasure. Last day for me to relax. Then it's back to taking notes and keeping my ears open for lectures. I haven't been writing for the past two weeks so my handwriting will be horrible for the first few days of classes. Sigh.

Just a few more semesters to go. I will perservere.

The Domination of Lazy Chromosomes

Tonight was Parents' Night of the annual drama (the title for this year's production is The Warlord of Terror) held in SMI. I tagged along since my bro had some extra tickets. Who doesn't love free tickets? I bought for the show next Sunday but since I have watched it, I am still wondering whether I should sell the ticket off or watch a second time.

Finally, I have finished reading all four books of the Twilight Saga. I know I am slow but at least I am faster than the movies. That's some kind of consolation. =P

A new semester will start in two days' time and yet I am still not prepared. I have this cluttered feeling that everything is still not in place. The file is still not emptied in preparation of welcoming the impending notes as I have no idea where to put my current notes. Maybe I shall do it tomorrow. IF the tomorrow ever comes. I am pretty sure I will end up emptying my file on Tuesday, right before I leave for college. Procrastination attacks AGAIN!

H1N1 is hitting Ipoh pretty badly now. I don't want to go out anymore. Hiding seems like a good way to prevent from getting infected. Even better, an excuse to take leave from college. Oh no, I haven't even started the semester and now I am already thinking of ways to escape. It's not my fault. It's the 'lazy chromosomes' in my cells that are doing all these wistful thinkings. The hardworking ones are diminishing in number each day. I wonder how much more time is left before they extinct completely from me. Getting crappy now. I should get some rest.

Good night, everyone.

Time to get the ball rolling

The first hurdle is gone and I am about to face the second one the next semester. God has been gracious. He has made my journey smooth so far and I believe it will stay this way so long that I continue to trust in Him. Praise God for the unexpected result. Everyone is happy. I do not have to retake any of my papers and my dad can gleefully save his RM300.

The bacteria from the shower water in My Gopeng is still causing my skin to itch. I need to soak myself in a tub filled with Dettol, I think. However, I should count my blessing as there are others who got it worse. Be grateful all the time, during good and bad times alike. I shall cling onto that.

Another week of break before I start a routine life all over again. My life is pretty routine during the holidays but it's the routine that I like because I get to choose what I want to do at home. I love the freedom I get during the holidays.

K-sessions, anyone?? I only have next week.

Currently looking forward to August 15th. I don't think it will be fun but I will try to enjoy myself as much as possible. Bukit Merah, be more interesting, okay?

Before I forget,

Happy 21st Birthday, Sarah!
