Selamat Hari Merdeka!!!


hanya beberapa jam sehingga pukul 12... di sini, saya ingin tulis blog dalam bm sekali lagi selepas percubaan pertama saya tahun lepas... sempena perayaan hari merdeka, saya akan mendedikasikan post ini kepada negara Malaysia yang saya cintai...

saya nak mulakan post saya dengan berkongsi apa yang saya lalui dalam minggu ini... saya terpaksa memilih bidang yang akan diceburi saya apabila saya berada di Jerman dan tempat saya nak meneruskan pelajaran saya... akan tetapi, saya berasa saya tidak cukup bersedia untuk memilih bidang ataupun tempat sebab beberapa kesulitan yang dihadapi... pertama, saya tidak lagi yakin dengan fizik saya setelah saya mendapat keputusan yang kurang memuaskan... kedua, saya tidak pasti sama ada saya nak pergi ke tempat yang banyak terdapat senior-senior atau ke satu tempat yang kurang terdapatnya orang malaysia supaya saya dapat memulakan sesuatu yang bermanfaatkan apabila saya berada di situ selama 5 tahun...

pada CA yang lepas, saya dapat pengetahuan yang banyak dan di sini saya ingin berkongsi pengalaman saya juga... saya mendapat tahu seorang penerima biasiswa bank negara membuat keputusan untuk kembali ke tanah air kesayangannya setelah dia habis melanjutkan pelajaran di US... kawan-kawannya memperlikannya kerana dia sanggup melepaskan peluang untuk untung duit yang banyak di US... hakikatnya, kawan-kawanny bagai kacang lupakan kulit kerana, walaupun mereka ini boleh memperolehi duit yang banyak dari bekerja di luar negara untuk menebuskan diri daripada diikat oleh kontrak mereka, tetapi mereka telah lupa siapa yang membantu mereka apabila mereka tidak mampu untuk melanjutkan pelajaran mereka... oleh itu, saya membuat keputusan untuk kembali ke tanah air bukan kerana saya tidak mahu jadi macam mereka yang bagai kacang lupakan kulit, tetapi saya berputuskan untuk men-honour-kan kontrak saya dengan sponsor saya (because my God is a covenant keeping God and therefore i wan to honour that) <-- tak tahu bagaimana nak cakap dalam bm...

kepada kawan-kawan sekalian yang sedang membaca post ini, sila fikir tentang soalan ini : kalau pelajar-pelajar yang dihantar ke luar negara oleh kerajaan kita tidak mahu balik dan bekerja untuk negara kita, adakah negara kita akan terus menghantar pelajar-pelajar ke luar negara? kalau macam itu, banyaklah pelajar yang seharusnya dibantu tetapinya peluangnya telah dihancurkan oleh mereka yang tidak mahu balik ke negara setelah menghabiskan pelajaran mereka di luar... fikirkanlah wahai kawan-kawan...

begitulah post saya yang saya banyak meluangkan masa untuk berfikir dan menaip... harap-haraplah kalian sekalian memahami apa yang hendak dikongsikan di sini...

Dying to self...

hav been pondering on this 3 words for quite some time n i found this posted up on my home church blog

When you are forgotten, or neglected, or purposely set at naught (means zero),
and you don't sting and hurt with the insult,
but your heart is happy being counted worthy to suffer for Christ...
that is DYING TO SELF.

When your good is evil spoken of,
when your wishes are crossed,
your advise disregarded,
your opinions ridiculed,
and you refuse to let anger rise in your heart or even defend yourself,
but take it all in patient, loving silence....
that is DYING TO SELF.

When you lovingly and patiently bear any disorder,
any irregularity,
any annoyance (EGR cases, for eg!);
when you stand face-to-face
with waste, folly, extravagance, spriritual insensibility,
and endure it as Jesus endured...
that is DYING TO SELF.

When you are content with any food (durian, NEVER!),
any offering, any climate, any society, any raiment (ramen?? means clothing...hehe),
any interruption by the will of God...
that is DYING TO SELF.

When you never care to refer to yourself in conversation,
or to record your own good works,
or itch after commendations,
when you can truly love to be unknown...
that is DYING TO SELF.

When you can see your brother prosper and have his needs met,
and can honestly rejoice with him in spirit
and feel no envy nor question God,
while your own needs are far greater and in desperate circumstances...
that is DYING TO SELF.

When you can receive correction and reproof from one of less stature than yourself
and can humbly submit inwardly as well as outwardly,
finding no rebellion or resentment rising up within your heart...
that is DYING TO SELF.

So what do we live for? To die...

Are you dead yet? In these last days, the Spirit would bring us to the cross, "That I may know him...Being made conformable unto His death," Phil. 3:10

Busy weekend

actually this post shud be posted earlier but due to some unforeseen circumstances, i decided to let this blog mourn for a few days...


The beautiful sunset of shah alam...


i really shud keep my weekends to come free.... my weekends are all super pack up wif super activities... but i really enjoy myself n the company despite the tiredness...
big thank you to the super woman driver who fetch me all the way to UIA to attend amir's bro wedding... its also the first malay wedding i attended in west malaysia... too bad i never get to see them bersanding... but thanks to all my frens who so patiently explain to me wat is going on there in UIA... i especially enjoy the gamelan, which i forgot to take photo of... i vaguely remember from my sejarah text books tat last time gamelan is for royalty only...

when i was exploring around the building wif sophie, i took this...


the happy bridegroom...

intec gang at the wedding...

big difference between a malay wedding n chinese wedding... u'll NEVER see yellow or white in a chinese one...


really nice gift we get for attending the wedding... too bad its not bunga telur for the girls, but then the box is filled wif imported chocolates, super nice...

Then at night i proceed to UiTM shah alam main campus to attend the annual inter-programme (INPRO) sports competition closing ceremony...

ALG mascot... the human eagle...
Prior to contrary belief, i m NOT the mascot... to prove it... plz see below...











Two beautiful german ladies... haha

共勉之(二)。。。

I love you not because of who you are,
but because of who I am when I am with you.
我愛你不是因為你是誰,而是我在你面前可以是誰。

No man or woman is worth your tears,
and the one who is, won't make you cry.
沒有男人或女人是值得你為他流眼淚,值得的那一位,不會要你哭。


Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
那人不是你所想般的方式愛你,但不代表那人不是全心全意地愛你

Never frown, even when you are sad,
because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
就算你不快樂也不要皺眉,因為你永不知道誰會愛上你的笑容。

To the world you may be one person,
but to one person you may be the world.
在世界裡你可能只是某人,但對某人你可能是全世界。

Don't waste your time on a man/woman,
who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
不要花時間在一個不會花時間在你身上的人。

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one,
so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.
可能神要我們在遇到那位對的人之前先遇上一些錯的人,
讓我們遇到那位對的人時懂得珍惜。

Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.
不要因為完結而哭,要為曾經發生而微笑。

There's always going to be people that hurt you,
so what you have to do is keep on trusting and
just be more careful about who you trust next time around.
這個世界永遠也會有一些傷害你的人,
你要做的就是繼續嘗試去相信人和小心你下次你相信的人。


Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try
and know someone else and expect them to know you.
在你嘗試了解其他人和盼望其他人明白你之前,
先把你自己變成一個更好的人和了解你自己。

Amazing Grace

wat more can i say? twas Grace tat taught me everything i need to know bout my faith... which i oweys thought is superior tat others out there... but it is not!!! it is not more important or powerful than the others but it is the TRUTH! Passion conference was sth i never experience before, i've learn so much from it although i budge in half way n miss the first quater of the sermon... hope i can get my hands on the sermon soon enough... those who were not there for the conference, shud really go for it at least once... its has been a long time since i experience anything like it... its like a quick rest at the jetty for my spiritual voyage, n now i m fully equipped for my next destination... til then, i m still floating, this time not aimlessly but wif the guidance of the wind to the place where it blows me to...


Gott segne Sie,
Pat

好久哦...

距离上一篇华语文章还蛮久的了,只因一个字啊!!!

懒惰是因为要花多点心思和时间写文章,可是我明明时间多的是,可为什么总觉得时间不够用呢?后来仔细想一想,应该是我把时间花在神所不喜悦的事上,所以就决定把这星期的周末还给上帝吧!可是,后果不堪设想,原因是我每次都迫不及待的把周末的时间都事先安排好,造成后来有许多能亲近上帝的活动都不能去。可是这次我勇敢的作了一个决定,虽然我知道我这样做会伤害到人,可是我必须做个正确的决定,而我也不必向任何人交代,这也是我其中一个写华语文章的原因,只因为不要做不必要和多余的解释,希望看得懂的人能够明白我的心情,我这么做不是因为我故意伤害你,而是这是我的决定,所以希望你能够谅解。在这里献上我万分地歉意和谢意。
