Today was really exciting. Pastor Kong wasn't around so Pastor Derrick preached the word. The word was good. Initially I really thought it was a word I really needed... It was about hurts in your life. But as I examined myself, I realised that I've already let go of most of the hurt that I experienced. I also checked to see if I was really denying the hurt or hiding it, but I really do not see the instance where I do... If anything, I think I don't really remember things much, especially when it comes to the people around me... That could explain why I don't seem to remember many people's birthdays too...

Prayer is wonderful. It's a time where you spend time just 'talking' to God... And if that's the definition, I believe I do a lot of it. Perhaps not in terms of sitting down and really having what I call 'formal prayer'... I talk to God a lot any time that I can. When I sit to think and contemplate about the day or anything, I always also talk to God. I do admit, most of the time it's complaining... but I guess from cell group I learned that giving thanks IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES means being grateful no matter how bad the situation may seem (Of course, not being grateful for the situation, but in it) God is really good. Hallelujah!

I managed to complete the props needed for the Malaysian night today. It looks a little funny and the skit itself is a ripoff from my college's International Friendship Day... but I guess under the circumstances it'll have to do.

I managed to setup the unix shell to connect to my SOC unix server. So I can access the unix server from hall... i think i'm beginning to love unix. MS-DOS anyone? I think i'll install Suse Linux into this laptop too... Once I burned off all the music and comics... ^_^

I think that's all for now. GAH! I didn't go for COM-EX... heard the deals were awesome... but, well, wallet isn't very healthy at the moment anyway. Ok, I'll stop here!
