let me never forget - THANKFUL

realize that everytime comes to testimony time, i won't share cos i dunno how to really express it as eloquently or spiritually as the rest. ;D but ya, i wanna THANK GOD so here goes... a long list attributing every thanks and good thing to God for this quite-amazing week.

My week went like that:
Mon - school (11-6), work (11-7am)
Tues - school (12-6), Starbucks partner meeting (7.30-9.30), lala-land*
Wed - school (12-2), Ministry at Kallang (3-6), Piano lesson (7.30-9), work (11.30-8am)
Thurs - crash&burn (10-6pm), study
Fri - school (2-5), lala-land (9-10), work (11-6.30am)
Sat - quiz (10-11), cell group (2.30-5.30), sports (6-7.30pm), dinner (-9.30pm)

THANK GOD:

1. for those 15-20 minutes that He showed up everytime i just took up the guitar to get myself ready for the day ahead - through the long hours of work and physical fatigue, i feel it's really God's strength that help me have the capacity to look beyond what i'm feeling and focus on what i want - which is to have a good attitude, to worship Him in everything i do, outside and inside of church.

2. good health! everytime i feel like; tak boleh~~~ or even when my colleagues were getting sick, i didn't! hoho.. but still need to get enough rest.

3. totally supportive parents. i've seen a change not only in how my parents have begun to place more faith in my decisions, but how they are communicating their love more to us and to my brother. slowly, conflicts that used to arise over my brother and financial issues, are getting resolved without any raised voices! so many times the family would just pile into the van and all send me off to my workplace.. i can't say how touched i feel that i have a family that supports me like that, even when i mess up my schedule by being disorganized! X'@

4. favor of people. seriously, it's hard to keep up a good attitude when on top of your lack of sleep etc., people pick on you and make life hard. but wow, it's like, just by deciding to plow through any awkwardness & peer pressure and just doing the best i can, God just protected me from all of that. things are moving smoother at work, not only with my fellow baristas, but with customers as well. i got chocolates, hong bao & lots of marked-out food this week~!

5. During the Starbucks partner meeting, they celebrated my birthday! haha.. actually the february babies' birthdays.. but ya, so sweet - a photo of the partners at the last chalet outing + $10 isetan voucher! ;D I'm glad i chose Starbucks~ Thank God for the job!
6. Friends & family

- NUS: thanks loads to peeps like Shimin and Huiping!!! Though i wasn't in school for Valentine's Day (quite a deliberate thing actually... ;p), they made the effort to pass me a rose and a handmade heart through our mutual friends... Awww... on top of the workload and having to practice for chingay and stuff, they still found time and money to do this - though seriously i'm sure they have friends closer to them! ><>
I FEEL LOVED. ><

ok, now i shall go and have a good cry.

As Sy Rogers said today, there are things we can look back on, our memorial stones, that encourage us and give us strength to move forward. I rmb a time I was so far away and so tired of people in general, cos really it's relationships that really get me down - n when Jean would walk in on me crying or just sitting and not even having the energy to do stuff, she would listen n say 'just cry out to God alright?' and that would be the last thing i wanted to hear. sometimes you know what to do, and you know what the advice will be, but when the emotions are not there, an…

beauty and the beast

Best movie ever!

I admit, I was totally sceptical at what I thought was another attempt to spoil a good thing. But musicals... haven't regretted watching a single one, from Chicago, Burlesque, Les Miserables (though I only found out it was fully a musical midway)! We live and we learn :)

Ok, here's how good it was. I went back to watch it a second time. Hee.

It's definitely one of those movies to watch alone - so you can cry at all the odd moments. I gather from the odd chuckles and silences from my fellow movie-watchers, that we were all touched by the movie in one way or the other. None of us wanted to live till we saw the end of the credits. You have to leave immediately when the lights come on though, so you can go remove any traces of the tear tracks.

Loved Belle for being both feisty and just lovely. Emma Watson, you danced beautifully; I was half-in-love with you myself! And of course Beast and the eye-rolling, bumbling-ness of him.

The best of it all was the famili…
