It's been quite some time since my last post. I've been having quite a fun time this holidays. Came back from Genting™ which was a pretty good trip. We stayed there 2 nights and had a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it was a little foggy and wet on the second day so we couldn't try a lot of rides, but we did go for quite a few and I'm pretty happy about that. So, me, Garlic, Wei Chong, Ian, Tommy, Blur, Sushi and Sze Mun were at the top enjoying ourselves. We got 2 rooms, and our room was the bigger one naturally... But it was split 6 ways. Still, we had the PS2 which was quite a big focus during our stay there. Pretty cheap to pay RM50 for 2 nights in Genting™... it WAS off peak mind you... low season in fact (Exam period in both Singapore and Malaysia ^_^) So it was really good. Winning 11™ was pretty much the highlight of things, but football isn't really my kind of thing, so I became the 'free frag'. It was pretty fun to watch though.

In case you're wondering, I'll be in KL till the 31st of May. I will then be off to Thailand for a few days and be back in Singapore on the 10th of June. When I finally move in then, I MIGHT come back to KL for a week around July (Since most people will be having holidays then...) It's quite sad because most people in KL now are either having exams or they're coming soon... Guess it's just the way it goes.

I also went for the IMAX experience. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty nice IMHO, but I think for the price you pay it's not quite worth it. Luckily I had my cousin who could get cheap tickets. I think she frightened my friends a little though, she told us that she just 'closed down Kyros Kebab™' and they were like "Whoa, she can close people down?" ^_^

Ok, I'm reading books now again... but not devouring them as fast as previously because I have to go out every once in a while... I had a flat yesterday which took off my entire afternoon, but I got everything fixed and ready to go. I made Ben Shyen late for class though, so I'm very sorry about that. I was wondering about that event but God reminded me to not only be slow to anger but also continually be sacrificial in serving. I guess He really rammed home that point.

Yesterday's cell was pretty good too. We had some YWAM people who came down on their way to Indonesia. They shared their hearts out and Sunny (I hope that's the correct spelling) shared about how we have to trust God to take care of everything because He's SO BIG. I'm inclined to agree. Although I don't think I have a calling to full time missions, I do feel that it's a matter of time before I go for missions myself. What she said is true, this land is ours, we're here. If we don't win this land for God, who will? If not us then who? That went straight to my heart and yea, I'm going to come back as soon as I can. I'm going to avail myself and say, "Lord, here I am. Use me," even if I don't know how or where. For now, I know God called me to study, but in the future, well, only God knows.

I've been pretty blessed this whole week. Granted it's been a slacking week, but it's still not exactly idling around if you get my meaning. All the best for those still with exams. God bless!

Holidays are cool, except for one thing... All the things you wanted to do after your exams? Well, you never really get down to doing them. So I wrote a list of things to do before my exams. They include: Learning PHP, Thinking about the script for next year's concert, playing DOTA, redesigning this site, fix my Suse Linux and probably a couple more which I've forgotten. In any case, it's good that I'm reading up a bit on PHP. I'm trying to use it to redesign my site, but I realised that I can't manipulate the database except those fields given by Blogspot™ and other third party companies. So that leaves me with modifying normal Blogspot™ templates.

I'm enjoying life... I'll go for tea now so I'll continue later. ^_^


I cleaned up the comp suite today. It wasn't really in a very bad state, so I could do it myself. It's quite ok now except that it's not vacuumed... and I don't intend to do it just yet. So at least ONE thing is out of the way.

PHP is fun. I seriously kind of enjoy knowing that I can 'program' a webpage, but it's good to have a real purpose for it. My blog for instance, instead of any old page. Still, interacting with a database would NOT be particularly easy to implement, and I seriously need to know HOW to do it. That will come during the holidays... I hope...

Packed up some clothes and my miscellaneous items today. I've got tomorrow to finish everything, but I've settled with throwing a lot of stuff away. Hopefully I can move out without any inconveniences.

Ok, I won't write too much. Game starting soon, so I'm off.
