Sickness begone!

Right when there's a hundred and one things to do,
Right when you're already scheduled for work,
Right when you've appointments and assignments,
Right when you've plans to buy stuff,
Right when you've plans to hang out,
Right when you're excited about all the above,
i think that's when you get sick.

i dunno if i've gotten the cause and effect thing the right way around. but came back from Kedah with a worsening cough. Lol... MUST relate what happened this morning, in the A.M. after work, when I was trying to catch up on my second assignment "Good Morning, Holy Spirit" by Benny Hinn.

I was lying on my stomach over the edge of my bed and reading...ok, then naturally i fell asleep.
*grr. The next thing i know, Jean's shaking me awake and saying, "you're bleeding you're bleeding!" I look down and I'm dripping orange-red liquid from my nose. HAHAHA~ I'm not laughing at that, i'm laughing at your reactions! XD

Ok, it was only supposedly a drop or two, then i lifted up my book and the floor was covered. I was seriously too tired to care what was happening, though a part of me was like "wow, what's that about?" and another just accepted that, "oh no, i'm bleeding." This incident thereby cancelled every single thing planned for the next day, specifically, SOT, Hanging out & getting presents, Taking over Syaheed's M2 shift-cum-be present to contribute to partner enthusiast team. T.T

Zonked out for the rest of the morning den went to the doctor - Cool! I've got sinus infection!** I thought sinus was for all those Singaporeans with weirdly, unSingaporean noses. But yeah, think it was the whole weather thingy, esp the bathing in cold water in cold weather in Kedah. Still, thank God cos my mom's only got flu and she's like worse off than me - coughing till her body aching. Yeah, so just need to rest up and try to get things done as much as i can so things don't start piling up!

Haha... thinking about it, this year's pretty packed. There isn't holiday at all! But still don't regret SOT. My mom was just talking about passion. Passion being shown in that we pursue what we love. I'm glad that though I could have pursued other things like an education route that would have taken me overseas, to experience more of life etc., but that I feel I'm right where I am, pursuing God.

** When your nose (either nostril) gets stuffed up, and there's lots of mucus being produced that doesn't necessarily flow out. Plus either cheek starts to experience a bone ache. Plus orangey or yellow mucus - that's when you've got sinus infection.

There must be more than this
Oh breath of God come breathe within
There must be more than this
Spirit of God we wait on You

Fill us anew we pray

Lord have your way Lord have your way in us

Stir it up in our hearts Lord

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…

hello from the other side

hello to the old me (6 years, yikes!)

hello from someone who's discovered that old is just another word for diminishing physical capacity, but increasing everything-else capacity!

The old me would have said, I should have posted more regularly and I shall post more often now... but I'm glad in hindsight that I held to my belief that I should only post when I've something positive to contribute. Not just words, but how they are birthed. Words written without vanity. And words written not to solicit approval in replacement of the lack of it elsewhere. Words that aren't hurried through the time needed to process and ruminate over the experiences of the past few years (dramatic in some aspects, mundane in most so all in all pretty much as per everyone else's I would expect!).

Still, a little mortifying to realise that I don't know how to work the buttons (!) and to realise I'd forgotten so many things, and yet in some respects, am still entirely the same.

And O…

on mountains and perspective

Kept awake by a bout of traveler's diarrhea and the ensuing abdominal colic. Just been back from an attempt at Mount Kinabalu, 'highest mountain in Southeast Asia'. Okay, those apostrophes are there out of bitterness... it really is the highest mountain in Southeast Asia. And I couldn't even attempt the summit. Made it to the base camp at 3067 m though... that's what it says on my black-and-white certificate - colored ones are only for successful summit-ers.  Crrr!

But I made it back with my life. And I'm humbler for the attempt, though how could I resist the parting shot: "I'll be back!"?

But on a more serious note, it's an awesome thing, a beautiful gift to be able to get out there into as natural a surrounding you can get (without dying a slow tv-less death from cold, altitude sickness, projectile vomit and did I mention cold?). It truly seems like one never can be happy - despite all my first-world comforts, I'd gladly pay to painfully…
