Christmas at Longhouse

The weather was oh-so-wonderful despite the flood in Sibu town... we finally reach the longhouse after the 3 hours bumpy bus ride from Sibu... (not even genting's roller-coaster can beat tat bumpy ride) when we reach, we had to walk another 1 to 2 km of stony path to the longhouse...

Look how long the house is!!! Endless...

Some of the aunties who could not stand the heat...


The special gateway tat the ppl from the longhouse build to welcome us... the coconut leaves are such beautiful sight...

All waiting for Rev Tiong to cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony... the ppl there are so cute, they insisted on singing a lagu sembahyang which we had no idea wat to sing so in the end we sang "We wish you a merry Christmas"

Traditional iban costume... (esp to all west malaysians, don think u guys see this b4) hehe

View from inside the gate...

The longhouse folks are so helpful to put on fans for us...

Dora n Andrea!!!

Jonathan n Alan

The decos...

The one end of the longhouse where we had our Christmas service...

Look at the effort they put to decorate the whole corridor... imagine how much colour paper they had to prepare to decorate such LONG corridor...

Call to worship... but i don understand a thing...

For those anak bandar... guess u never see this b4!!! ha ha

2 of the naughtiest kids i ever met in my entire life...


Blessed Christmas everyone!!!

Christmas in Sibu...

Although i was down wif a major flu which cause me to lose my voice for 3 days, Christmas in Sibu is very much exciting n fun fun fun!!!

First there is 'the' camp which i had to walk on water to the bus station (because sibu was flooded tat time) to reach Mukah... i had a prayer camp last year at the same resort n this time, all the good old memory juz came back to me...


Kingwood Resort, Mukah
Such a beautiful place...

Sabrina n me (not forgetting frosty the snowman)

Celebrating Chu Kion's 21st birthday by the romantic beach...
(hiak hiak... i smell sth fishy...)

Out of nowhere she was squashed wif raw eggs n the yummy chocolate cake...

Poor cake...

then we all proceed to another midnight activity - UNO n pringles n more pringles

3 jokers... sigh


Then the journey continues wif a Christmas procession around Sibu town...
Sabrina n Nyuk Hung

Jac n Ah Fong

All ready in green n red for the parade...

They claimed to be high on the spirit... ehem

The beautifully decorated vehicles...

Accompanied by banners...

May you celebrate Christmas with Jesus this year!

Set the world on fire

I wanna set the world on fire
Until it’s burning bright for You
It’s everything that I desire
Can I be the one You use?

I, I am small but
You, You are big enough
I, I am weak but
You, You are strong enough to
Take my dreams
Come and give them wings
Lord with You
There’s nothing I can not do
Nothing I cannot do

I wanna feed the hungry children
And reach across the farthest land
And tell the broken there is healing
And mercy in the Father’s hands

My hands my feet
My everything
My life, my love
Lord, use me

I wanna set the world on fire
I wanna set the world on fire, yeah

I’m gonna set the world on fire
Set the world on fire

Thoughts on benchwork

during my 3 weeks of GMI, the one thing tat impact me the most is the benchwork... it is through benchwork tat i realise sth important... i get to know more about Jesus's life before he went out to preach the gospel...

one day, my fren came to me while i was sawing my metal workpiece n told me :
"u must be good in this."

(quite confuse by this statement) i ask back :
"Why?"

"Coz u r a Christian"
(what he meant is Jesus being a carpenter)

Then i realise... so this is how Jesus spend most of his time doing... so i manage to hav a glimpse of Jesus life...

no wonder He can be physically so strong because it really take a lot of effort to saw even a small part of the metal workpiece...

no wonder He can be so patience when dealing wif ppl who do not understand Him because it really take a lot of time juz to make the surface smooth n flat (90 degrees to the horizontal...)

no wonder He can be so careful about things He say or He does because when handling the workpiece, we cannot afford to make mistakes otherwise it cannot be make up again...

no wonder He can be so precise in the things He say to make sure the message gets through His ppl because when hitting the hammer, we must be precise otherwise u will end up wif a sore thumb like me...

no wonder He is so well prepared in His ministry because when drilling a hole, we must first prepare a guider by punching a small hole on the surface...

and sometimes, i even feel tat Jesus is like the workpiece, so willingly giv up His life for us so tat we can be saved...

there are also times i feel like we are the workpiece, we must be willing to offer ourselves to be drilled, punched, sawed, filed, smoothened, flattened, corrected etc so tat we can be the final masterpiece...

benchwork is not a bad thing after all... (now i juz hope i did not fail my electric class) haha

Random stuff bout me...(2)

i get this inspiration to blog this thanz to my fren lawson...

five things you don't know about me... (u probably don't want to noe too)

1. Don't ever dare to NOT make any response when i talk to you. A simple smile, laugh, even a tweek in the eye will do. Don't give me a this-is-just-a-statement-and-not-a-question-so-i-don-need-to-response look when i talk to you. I am so gonna erupt in front of u...

2. I walk a lot when i m revising. I can't sit still on a chair for even a sheer 20 minutes. i can't control it too... every 10 to 20 minutes i must stand up and walk around a few steps b4 i sit down and continue to my studies... its kind of my reflex action

3. I don't believe in love at first sight but i do believe in happily ever after.

4. I don't drink milk. Not tat i m allergic to it but i juz don like the taste of it. However, i do like dairy products. I juz don drink raw milk or milk in any form of unprocessed state.

5. I hate liars. nuff said.

Overwhelmed...

Had so much breakthrough for the past month... the testimonies juz keep coming n multiplying... so open ur eyes n hearts to see the wonderful things tat happen to me last month...

First was about the loudness in some worship session... i noe i always get affected by the fact tat the worship team is too loud, not only CA but church as well... i had the tendency to judge worship team according to the loudness... (maybe its partly due to the fact tat i was from a conservative home church) but tat cannot be the reason i judge ppl, conservative or not conservative, everyone is the same in God's eye... i was so ignorant n arrogant to believe tat the real worship team need to suit the congregation to lead them to a worship mood... i was SO wrong!!! i was reminded n rebuked publicly by a pastor in church during one of the sunday morning service... to me, the worship team was exceptionally LOUD tat morning, n i was sitting in one of the front rows in church, juz behind the deacons n elders... i was so stupid to let the ways of the evil to affect me n so i tot to myself, "how can i worship wif this kind of music..." i let my pride take over n i was so stuck there at tat moment... i could not help but thinking of moving to the back n then it hits me... y m i doing this, letting MUSIC to decide whether i had a good or bad or loud or quite P&W session? God reminded me tat music is not the main thing in a P&W session... worship is between me n God, not some music or lyrics ... i could not help but laugh at my little faith... however, i hav a great God... however small my faith is, He is stil there for me... after tat, pastor went up on stage n asked to worship team to stay back... apparently i m not the only one who thinks tat the worship team is loud... so i tot pastor is going to tegur them not to be too loud next time but instead he start to ask the drummer to play his drum... of coz lah, if u play alone n the whole congregation is looking at u, u sure play soft soft de... then pastor really starts to get a bit agitated n asked the drummer, "Hav u done ur best for God? then it hits me... preach it pastor!!! i start to feel ashame n guilty... after hearing this, the drummer hit the drumset wif all his heart n mind n soul n suddenly... i don feel tat he is loud lor... then the guitar, bass, piano all went in together n worship begins... this time, wif another perspective... although sitting at the third row, i felt the peace in me even though i could feel the drumbeats banging on my heart... 'thud thud... thud thud...' it was as if God is knocking on my heart but before tat i was too ignorant to notice it n open my heart for Him... worship is after all between individual n God... after the service, i felt so convicted because i was the one going around poking at CA's worship team being sometimes too loud n i let it affect my worship in some of the P&W session... how could i stop ppl from giving their best to God by playing the drums (sorry amos...) or guitar or piano or organ wif all the heart n soul??? Lord, forgive me for i had been so ignorant to You... take away my pride n help me swallow it...

Second was a lighter one... haha... it happen on a saturday when i was planning to go to my aunt's place... she's staying wif my cousin at kota damansara so as usual i had to go there by public transport ALONE which includes the one i dislike most - TAXI... this time, i prayed before going, hoping tat there might be some juniors who are going to ktm station wif me at the same time so tat i can tumpang along... i remember the last time when i travelled alone, God always send ppl to send me to ktm station... this time, amazingly i saw a tiny n ponytailed girl at the bus stop n so i called out "ERINNNnnn" ... i found out tat she too, is on her way to ktm station to go to her sister place... wow, first testimony of the day, God had send another person again... so on the way to the esso busstop (the place where all the taxi lined up preying for their next victim) another amazing thing happen, there was this rapid KL stopping there wif the door wide open... apparently tat was the first time Erin took rapid KL to ktm station coz she din noe tat rapid goes to ktm station too... so happily we boarded the bus wif only RM1 instead of RM4,5 or 6 charged by the taxi driver... when we reach the station, we saw tat a train juz pass by so we tot the next one will not be arriving til 20 minutes later so erin took her time to buy her ticket while i waited coz i got touch'n go... but in 5 minutes time, another train arrived n erin was half way queuing up for her ticket... but God never bless His children a little bit only but He continue to shower His favour on us... we tot tat we could not make it since the door of the train is already closed so again we took out time to walk slowly across the bridge to the other platform... but when we walked, we did not see the train moving so i decide to giv it a shot by running down the stairs n press the button beside the door n at tat moment, i truly believe tat miracles do happen... the door actually opened... we went in the train speechless, in awe at the wonderful things tat had happen to us on the way... we felt God's presence was so strong tat erin n i were so overwhelmed... God's favour is really showering us tat we believe non of this would happen if it is not bcoz of God...

Last but not least, i could not stop praising Him for all the wonderful things He has done, is doing n will be doing in my life...

God is good, all the time...
And all the time, God is good...

Amen

the P word ending wif C

dunno y during exam times i tend to update n online more... one way of destressing maybe? but anyway, hav been reading a lot from the internet these few days... mostly about the *ahem highly forbidden *hem hem (sorry, was juz clearing throats) starts wif P and end wif C, n mostly about the annual conference of a certain party who doesn't exist in sarawak, n hopefully never will...

haha... i noe i shud not be saying this coz i m a certain *hem ehem scholar but sometimes i cannot help myself by laughing at some of the comments of certain ppl, some princess maybe... and i read some really cool blogs, one of them is none other than our ex-prime minister (do u noe tat minister is the other word for servant, hmmm... i wonder...) daughter has a blog n she's the coolest blogger in Malaysia... ok i shall leave the rest to Si Han... he's da man in this topic, i m juz merely a newbie...

Malaysia need ppl like him!!!!!

Congratz to Dr Kenny Lee Kian Yee for being The Most Outstanding Youth in Malaysia of the year 2007... click here to see the news report on AYA dream Malaysia awards

ok... i admit i voted him because he serve in Sarawak... but later its his spirit tat touched n inspired me to really go to the basic of being a servant... tat is to give up everything n be obedient...

i was actually at the AYA awards which is held in KLPAC in the midst of my final exam... ppl asked me why did i go??? my answer is simply... "i feel like i shud be there to witness ordinary ppl doing extraordinary things for Malaysia..."

to me, all nominees are already winners... n i think wat they did is so much greater than wat the boss n his cabinet is doing... as a scholar, i really felt tat some of the money tat the government used on me n my fellow frens from all over Malaysia(esp those who drive merz n branded cars to sch) shud be contributed to those who really need it... Dr Kenny even had to steal from the hospital to help ppl in the ulu areas who are juz so short of basic medical equipments, not to say those canggih machines (eg scanner, computer aided surgical robot) when he was receiving his price, he was talking about how an area of Long Lama,(which is as big as pahang) the area in which he is serving as a doctor now, has only 1 doctor, that is himself... how can ppl be as selfless as he can be??? looking at myself, i felt so ashamed... i was even thinking of the job prospect when i choose the course tat i opted for...

the performance at the awards is simply life changing... one of them is the "macarena" dance which is considered so cliche, except this time, it was performed by ppl sitting on wheelchairs... i remember when i was in primary school, i was so afraid to shake my body when doing the dance n now here i am, looking at ppl who have so much joy in them when they dance on wheelchairs... i watch them doing the dance with a smile so wide tat it could reach their ears... the hands which hold the camera was shaking so much i cannot contained it, overwhelmed by the feeling, i cried... again feeling so ashamed of myself... i began to realise, i got a pair of wonderful feet tat i take for granted all these years...

this post is intended to be a pure writing post so tat only those who really wan to read this, read... thank you for your time to read this piece of my heart who goes out to the unsung heroes of Malaysia...

What is my stand??

hav been asking myself this question since the day i start searching for my purpose on this earth... i was so lost tat time, my road ahead so dark i could not see the future, living in fearlessness but only fear the one n only big guy up there... finally i found it... it lies in the words of this song...

You stood before creation
Eternity within Your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
Carried the Cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon Your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I'll walk upon salvation
Your Spirit alive in me
This life to declare Your promise
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I’ll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all

So I’ll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

Show me Your heart
Show me Your way
Show me Your glory

The Stand

album: United We Stand (2006)



SO WHAT IS YOUR STAND???

Welcher Mode-Typ sind Sie?

Und hier ist Ihr Ergebnis:
Sie sind Typ B

DER MIX-TYP
Sie sind flexibel - und je nach Stimmung wechseln Sie auch gern Ihre Outfits: Sie tragen heute Turnschuhe zum Anzug und wenn Ihnen danach ist, ziehen Sie morgen auch noch ein grelles Shirt unter den Blazer. Denn Sie kombinieren einfach gern: edel und sportlich, trendy und klassisch und so weiter Sie haben zwar so Ihre Lieblingsläden, aber wenn Sie dort nichts finden, gehen Sie auch gern auf Entdeckungstour. Genug Selbstbewusstsein haben Sie ja: Sie nehmen sich einfach die Mode-Freiheit, das zu tragen, was Ihnen gefällt und worin Sie sich wohlfühlen. UNSER TIPP: Manchmal kann die grenzenlose Freiheit der Modewelt von heute auf morgen unüberschaubar werden - deshalb sollten Sie sich vor jedem Stadtbummel genau überlegen, was in Ihrer Garderobe noch fehlt. Wägen Sie lieber in Ruhe ab, ob Sie das neue Teil wirklich brauchen - so lassen sich Frust- und Spontankäufe vermeiden. Im Zweifeslfall sind Basics wie ein schmal geschnittener Pullover oder ein weisses Hemd die richtigen Stücke, um Ihr Outfit variantenreicher zu machen. Denn: Diese Teile lassen sich super kombinieren. Und das ist ja genau Ihr Ding!

Bee-You- Est-Wuai

Been quite busy since the day i arrive back home... to my utmost surprise, my dad, bro and grandpa, being the only male species around at home, decide to take some day off during raya to singapore... i was juz exaggerating lah... mostly its because my grandpa needs to perform once-a-year-body-thorough-checkup after his operation on colon cancer 6 years ago (i think)... so being the only 'experienced' being around (i sort of worked at my grandpa shop since primary sch, so i noe a bit about the ways of how a business is ran...)

one word to describe the working experience --> sien

nonetheless, the experience reminds me of my good old days when i spend nearly half my time at my shop... its the place where i grew up and since then i dare to call myself, the wild kid tat grew up at pasar aka 巴刹长大的野小孩

Finally, after 6 days of working non-stop from 6am (yes, ppl here open their shop at friggin 6am in the morning...) to 5 pm... of coz i do take some time off time after time... haha... how could i
resist running around the place which i m so familiar wif...

btw, my younger bro come back from sgp wif this... (sweat... kids nowadays... haih...)



he bought absolutely NOTHING for me despite all the time and effort and money i spend on him... haha... actually not many oso lah... quite dissappointed wif him... how could he hav so much fun in sgp while i was stuck here in sibu taking care of the shop for him... anyway, my dad bought me lots of stuff though... hehe... so happy moh!!!



other than all those stuff, i oso take some time off listening to some of the music tat i hav not
been keeping in touch for a very long time - chinese pop songs... use to listen to tonnes of them bcoz of my chinese background and easy access back home... the first album i listen to is from wang lee hom... his songs all seem quite similar to his previous one but not bad for someone who is sooo cute!!! always ppl think tat those wif good looks can't sing or act well but this guy sure can sing n dance n act... (maybe i shud consider changing my husband to him, but nah... my zhao ren cheng is stil the best...)

and one of his songs 改变世界,meaning 'change the world' had the following lyrics :

我可以改变世界
改变自己
改变龟毛
改变小气
要一直 努力 努力 永不放弃
才可以改变世界
COME ON 改变自己


hmmmm....
to change the world, first we hav to change ourselves...
now tat's sth to ponder about...

A present for myself...


Apparently, it cost a lot... anyone care to donate some money for me???
i'll write ur name at the first page... haha


You are beatitul...

To my best of the bestest friend in the whole wide world...

Seeing you going thru a lot of stuff lately... juz wanna dedicate this post to u... we've come so far til today... since 6 years old i've known u and i stil believe tat u are stil the sweet and caring girl tat i met 13 years ago at Chung Hua Kindergarten...

Every day is so wonderful
And suddenly, it's hard to breathe
Now and then, I get insecure
From all the pain, I'm so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring me down
Oh no, so don't you bring me down today

To all your friends, you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The pieces is gone left the puzzle undone
Is that the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh no
So don't you bring me down today

No matter what we do
(no matter what we do)
No matter what they say
(no matter what they say)
We're the song inside the tune full of beautiful mistakes


And everywhere we go
(everywhere we go)
The will always shine
(sun will always shine)
But tomorrow we might awake
On the other side

We are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won't bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring us down, oh no
So don't you bring me down today

Don't you bring me down today
Don't you bring me down today


*p/s : i'm not a lesbo if tat's wat u think... don let ur mind wander too far away

Everyone is leaving me... sobs

First it was my beloved physic lecturer, Dr Suganthi... she really played a really important role throughout my studies in INTEC... she's the first to knock me out of my sense... i remember after tat day, i went back from class wif a heavy feeling... i felt i dissappointed God and her so much... later during cell group, i can't stand it anymore and break down... tat's the first time i actually cry in front of ppl (not tat i never cry in front of ppl but tat was very depressing to find out tat i dissappointed God and din glorify Him...) then the seniors tat time (yuwan, josephine and adeline) prayed for me and i could not help but to cry even harder.... since tat day onwards, i told myself to really make an effort to change myself not only for myself but for God, who make all things possible... and many thanks to Suganthi for she has really reminded me of the purpose of life, where one of her last words in class is "We live for others(God)..."

Then it is Gloria who'll be leaving on 9/9/07 together wif eileen... although i've only known her for only 1 year, i felt tat she is a special person... (u really hav to know her to see for urself)
This is a funny sign board at the Jong's crococdile farm which gloria and her family took me to when i was in kch... but who dares to follow the sign... its only for the croc right??? haha...
This is gloria feeding the monkeys... oops... can she do tat???

Huge fish (i forgot wat it is called in english but i noe in chinese we called it dragon fish)


The reunion of sibu gang on the day when eileen came to visit us... although not all sibu ppl came but we really miss those days when she was wif us...

Eileen, the girl whom i've known since primary 3... i always remember her as the money counter... she is very good in maths because she says tat it is her calling to deal wif numbers... i remember the dilema she face when she was offered engineering and economics... i noe deep down inside her she prefer engineering but then she is willing to give up her dreams and follow the calling to study economics and i noe, tat is one decision she will never regret... all the best in ur future endeavors guys!!!
