“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
ISAIAH 9:6

Blessed Christmas.((:

And then I’ll stomp my feet, mess up my hair. Scream and cry. Fall to the ground and kick my self silly.

What for you ask me. What for? I ask myself.

Hey Judddde? Have some originality please. Seriously?

I was just frustrated in general. Sorry.

82190573Wherever I am you’ll always be
More than just a memory
The madness that you feel will soon subside
So in a word don’t shed a tear
I’ll be here when it all gets weird
If I ever leave this world alive
So when in doubt just call my name
Just before you go insane

She says I’m okay; I’m alright,
Though you have gone from my life
You said that it would,
Now everything should be all right

ea2124-001What happened to my childhood? I lived it. It’s gone.

Ice lollies on the balcony. Swimming in a paddling pool. Finger painting. Making house with barbie dolls. Dressing up in costumes. Playing hide and seek. Playing crocodile/YangPoPo between beds. Making food with play dough. Skiing in the shower. Wishing for a roller bag. Cycling down a slope just to run up again. Feeding the swans and fish in the Botanic Gardens. Having super long bubble baths with rubber duckies.

So what now? Do I have to grow up?

We’re so arrogant, aren’t we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don’t realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn’t drive you to commit murder or doesn’t humiliate you beyond repair.

kaleidoscopeI don’t really need or want anything for Christmas. Maybe more times of playing tennis and going to the gym? Learning to pray more and courage to witness.

Maybe I could just wish for this one thing:

A Kaleidoscope.

big-thank-youI have just returned from seeing melissa home after an evening with her. She came for tennis which we havent done for almost 2 years! I decided that we have to meet up more and play more tennis like before. Kind of stating the obvious! Following that we came back for a shower and scrumptious dinner of roast chicken amongst other things. Then we went to my room where I painted her nails for her. Yes, I for her. It was great. Apparently for her upcoming birthday. We decided to play speed and I won since she was trying not to smudge her wet nail polish. Haha. Packed her stuff and headed to Secret Recipe for some cake. The cake wasn’t spectacular but the company was good. Then of course, how could we resist a quick try on the swings at Henry Park. (((: That marked the end of my evening with her. We shall do this more often!!((((:

42-16341210Acts 3

1One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. 2Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. 3When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 4Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” 5So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

 6Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 7Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. 8He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. 9When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

144661_f5201Christmas is around the corner. I just splurged on a bulk of stuff on my way back from bible study at Ali’s place. Bought 4 movies and a few things from guardian. I’m absolutely bonkers.

I was just contemplating the fact that Christmas is around the corner. Do you remember Santa Claus? I do. I believed in him until I was P5. That was when my mother kindly burst my bubble. My stocking was full every Christmas morn, the plate that held the mince pie and glass of milk was gone by the time we stirred in the morning. Who wouldn’t believe such folk tale if they had been brought up to believe it without question?

To a certain extent I still wish it’d come true. That maybe one day the hot burly guy with the rounded tum tum will actually exist. His hair and beard will be white and bushy and his red and white coat so soft. He’ll forever be smiling and warm to everyone.

Okay, so you’re laughing at me now.

But, like I said before “…its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day… they will open their eyes and it will come true.”

cmyk_logo08_thnWell well well. About 20 hours ago I was being “angsty” and complaining about having to go for the Standard Charted Singapore Marathon 2008 (SCSM) as a first aider. I was just too tired from BBB and it didn’t seem happening at all in school.

BBB was a blast!! Everything went smoothly and seriously? I know God was there. Must admit that I was a tad distracted. Could have been a better time of praise and singing for me. I’m still glad everyone else enjoyed themselves. I loved the journey we all took together. Some walking, some running, some pacing others etc. In the end we all came to the finish line as one. But, this will not be the last time we do this kind of thing together. Just you wait! Thank you God.(((((: xxoo

SCSM was also a blast later on. It was cool to see all the runners coming in and all. For once I touched sweaty bodies and didn’t feel like I needed to wash my hands instantly! No serious collapse cases on our end. Maybe it was due to the fact that they could see the finish line by the time we saw them. By 12 o’clock (after we had been there 9 hours and slept only 1 hour) I decided to change my job to be a motivator. Since all the motivators had left and casualties were nil. So I stood there screaming my heart out for these strangers. It’s funny the high you get in doing this especially when they turn to you, smile and thank you. So we finally left and I took a cab home pretty much unaware of the pain I was going to be in due to the horrible lack of shade!

Now I’m here, trying not to sleep yet so that I can sleep through the night. I’ve got a painful and ugly sunburn. Sleeve, socks and hair line burns. Yuck! But the fun was worth my time and fair skin! Haha (((: Though I missed church.))):

Okay, I’m just rambling on with this bleugh post so I shall end here for now.

picnic tomorrow!!!
