Happy 23rd!

Happy or not happy... I celebrated my 23rd birthday just recently. Happy part was, my birthday fell 2 days after my final studio presentation so it was the right time to celebrate, and that I celebrated my birthday one day after with a good friend of mine Daniel and we were treated to a Meat Buffet at Docklands.  I have to thank Darren, Aaron Lau, Ben, Bryan, Amanda, Yee Von, and Lydia for the wonderful time together.

Well, I am glad the semester is over. One of my worse years (I hate 2010) ever and am hoping it ends soon.  But in the end, the work didn't turn out as badly as I expected and am just patiently waiting for the final exams and then the plans I am about to make for the holidays. I am contemplating whether I should try to find a job here or go back to Malaysia to spend time with my family... Missing home already.  Next year will be an even more challenging year and my path is still unknown.. Feel kinda useless really. I thought I got everything planned out but I suppose.  Nothing ever goes to plan in life. Will show my studio work in the future post.  For now... Chilll.... And ponder what things life shall bring....

Spring sunrise

It's that time of semester again where the final semester design project is about to due and when sleeping at 6am in the morning is a norm.  Sigh.. Not a happy semester, that I can tell you.  This week (including last Friday) was so stressful, and losing a dear dear friend does not help either.  Rebekah, really really miss you my friend, may you rest in peace as this is my final goodbye as I move on in life.


As memories came flooding in, Rebekah, you were more than just a good friend, you were like a little sister to me.  I remember the times when we brought you to school in the morning before you could even drive.  We were always greeted by you smiles and cheerful but sleepy “good mornings”.  I remember the good times we had in secondary school and especially when we were serving in the Wesley Youth Service.  When we went on our different path in life, I am glad we still met up when we were back in Sibu.  With your cheerful and cheerful smile.  I remember me, always messing up your hair just to disturb you and getting scolded by my mum.  Those were such great memories. The loss of a great friend is hard to bear, the loss of someone close is heart-breaking. 

Rebekah, though you were physically weak, you were one of the strongest and most passionate people I ever knew.  You brought smiles and happiness into so many people’s live.  Through music, friends, and even church.  Your life was a testimony for all who knew you.  Through all these sadness, I still thank God for a friend and a sister like you.  You will be deeply missed and will always be remembered.  Rebekah, thanks for being you. Thanks for being my friend. And as I can’t fly back to say goodbye, my heart is praying for you and your family.  See you in Heaven soon my friend.

As I walked back this morning, and as the sun began to rise, I somehow felt it within me that God was telling me how wonderful and important life is.  Looking at the sky, I thought to myself: "God is indeed very creative and wonderful."  Even when stuff gets tough, I know my God is there for me.  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.  So as I go off to bed, let me share with you what beauty I saw this morning. 

It is as if God is telling me: "Have a great day.." so I would like to wish everyone:
"Have a Great day!"

Sometimes in life,
A smile is all we need to get through the day.

And the best smile or laughter we get get is from little children.

How wondrous it is to learn from little children.

"And he said: " I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me." Matthew 18:3-5

Think about this.....

How far are you willing to go, to fight for what you believe in?

How far are you willing to go, when shouting and protesting is not enough?

How far are you willing to go, when banners and slogans are not enough?

How far are you willing to go, to fight for what is right?
