the ultimate randomness...

i juz love intec new buses... i actually look forward to go sch everyday...


now i shall go on to introduce some sibu very own delicacies...
diam biam ngu... believe me... its the actual pronunciation... i heard a lot of ppl pronounce it wrongly n sometimes i really feel like correcting them...


mani chai or lakia chai... its actually pucuk manis cooked wif egg... its a must have if u ever come to sarawak... ask those who came before, they absolutely love it...


biling guok or milian... not sure which pronunciation is correct, but i think its the former since my grandpa pronounce it tat way...


not forgetting the famous kompia...


mixed fruit cendol or sui guo bing... which betty still craves for it...

i shall end wif a pic of me eating the mega mac... nope i did not join the big mac chant, i chicken out when ppl dare me to... haha

the reason this post is so random is coz i feel very random now... classes started 2 weeks ago n i only start to get use to life without my usual frens around... in fact it kinda giv me a chance to hang out wif different ppl other than my usual gang... i got closer to the juniors, super juniors n also my classmates... i get to experience eating wif different ppl... i also get the chance to join INPRO for the first time in my life in intec... guess wat game i joined??? BOWLING... haha... i played bowling for the first time when i came here for studies n i tot i can play for free if i joined the competition... in the end i end up paying more for the practice... so much for saving money eh...

Aqui Estoy! Enviame Me!

original post :

i've always tot i've been called to become a missionary... n when i was 16 years old, at one particular youth conference, i rededicated my life for a purpose, a life of truthfulness n worth living... and at tat particular altar call, i made a covenant to go on a short term mission trip b4 i turn 25, which i hav yet to fulfill, but since i've always counted my life in intec as a mission trip so it really doesn't matter... so wat i really wan to say is, when my church pastor n elder suddenly wanted to introduce me to this super cute german guy in church, i hesitated yet i can't contain my excitement... i knew sth big wud happen, n i kinda expect it... in the end, i surrender myself n went to church alone this morning to meet up wif Demetrius, a really on-fire-n-ready-to-go-all-out-for-God german... he is not like the other germans i met, eh so far i only met less than 10 germans... haha... he is friendly, (did i mention he is cute too?) speak english wif a weird accent n speak only 2 words in german to me, 'sehr gut'...

sorry, i forgot to mention my church is planning to plant a church in germany n i m part of the plan... sooooooooooo... to be frank, i m very skeptical, i was thinking to myself : wat can i do over there? wat influence i hav? who m i to start a church over there? the answer to these question is.......

still in progress...

guess i hav to digest this sudden (to tel the truth, i kinda expect it when different ppl approach me to ask me which part of germany do i go to... little do i noe, i always ask back, 'so u guys planting a church there?' bad answer i noe... haha) drop of bomb... will update u guys once i sleep over it tonight...


Edited : the main question is, WILL i obey?


still standing by Grace

'I would die for you' is one student's story of passion, service and faith...



I Would Die For You Lyrics
Artist(Band):MercyMe

And I know that I can find You here
'Cause You promised me You'll always be there
Times like these, it's hard to see
But somehow I have a peace, You're near
And I pray that You will use my life
In whatever way Your name is glorified
Even if surrendering
Means leaving everything behind

My life has never been this clear
Now I know the reason why I'm here
You never know why You're alive
Until you know what you would die for
I would die for You

And I know I don't have much to give
But I promise You I will give You all there is
Can I possibly do less
When through Your own death I live?

No greater love is found
Than of those who lay their own lives down
As sure as I live and breathe
Now I know what it means to be free





BLESSED ARE THE MEEK, FOR THEY WILL INHERIT THE EARTH. MATTHEW 5:5

KK trip part 1 - Mount Trus Madi

Everyone, meet the most resourceful tour guide ever, who hitchhike himself to tambunan from kk all alone to get our permits settled... anyone wants to get a shot at the reality show 'Amazing Race Asia', sorry... he's fully booked... haha

Picture of us before the climbFrom left to right : the guide who never talk to us, the 19 years old potter, andersen who's also 19 but look at the size difference, rachel, grace, pat and tim...
Check out the smiles and the semangat-ness...


After 2 days and 1 night :

Addidas kampung which only cost RM3.90 a pair, is a MUST for climbing any mountains...

Freaky-little-slimy-blood-sucking-hole-wriggling-things...but at the end of the day, we all manage to transform into leech killers coz were so used to leech biting us... these leeches are invincible, they juz seem to attack from every direction, up,down,left,right...


one small part of the journey we took...

Beautiful flora on our way...
pitcher plant, otherwise known as monkey cups by the sabahans



This is how i keep myself warm...
by burning my fingers


its only 10 degress up there... no pray pray ok...

You lift my burdens,
I'll rise with You,
I'm dancing on this mountain tops,
To see Your kingdom come...
My redeemer lives...
