epic week

this week was epic because... (sounds like the start of a primary school journal entry... but do i care?)

1. no matter how different we become, wombmate and I will always faint over the same movies.

2. of homemade meals and gifts... :''')

3. my birthday was more important to my friends than it was to me. they had to wake me up for it!

4. Jang made me a CARD! and took us out for dinner though she was tired :) it was nice being able to talk and be totally insensitive and immature to her and still be loved though... shoutout to Jang!

5. my mum may not say the right things all the time but i finally get her. Mum rocks.

6. my dad shook me awake with a "Happy birthday" then ran off before I was fully conscious.

7. all the friends who wished me their blessings for the year...!

birthday unwished

words. :)

no books. no presents. just a note, an email... whatever.

i'd really appreciate thought more than anything else.

as for time spent catching up, my 23rd year is gonna be dedicated to that.

so don't let this day stress you out. ;)


if your reaction to this post is, 'when's her birthday again?', know that i appreciate the thought but you don't have to find out ;)

because You are more

Tenth Avenue North - You Are More from Provident Label Group on Vimeo.

'Cause this is not about what you've done,
But what's been done for you.
This is not about where you've been,
But where your brokenness brings you to

This is not about what you feel,
But what He felt to forgive you,
And what He felt to make you loved.

You are more than the choices that you've made,
You are more than the sum of your past mistakes,
You are more than the problems you create,
You've been remade.

to us singles

what with valentine's day & red & pink streamers along the walkways in school, i've been thinking about love.

it's funny how most of my friends say that now's not the time for them to commit to that significant other. i can't speak for them, but i think i know how to explain why i am one of the singles-by-choice(-and-circumstance).

honestly, as much as it boggles some people's minds, this is not one of the instances where women say 'no' when actually they mean 'yes'.

the Bible has always taught about how we cannot give if we do not receive. i realized just today that i haven't learnt how to receive love wholeheartedly. therefore, i cannot imagine myself loving someone else.

maybe that's why we always whole dear our first loves. it is probably the only time our hearts are flung wide open to taste love for the first time. hand in hand with that is the experience of the pain of rejection. we learn to calculate and measure out love. we w…

"For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you." - Paul, in Romans 12:3

I've been beating myself up a lot lately. Gotta admit that I deserve my grades for my cavalier attitude towards my studies... though I can't say that I regret sacrificing the time for things I believe in.

But judgment has got to be balanced with faith. These past few days, I forgot what it felt like to believe. I don't want to get jaded, or feel like I need to do things I don't believe in just to survive and get ahead of others. Sometimes feeling foolish is the price to pay for committing to what you believe in...
