haven't been home lately, so it was kinda cool yesterday when i spent all day in IMU...
not cool in the sense that i didn't hav to see my parents, but cool as in, its nice to be able to have a home away from home kinda thing... anyways, this is what happened...
Yesterday drove to IMU cos' andrew didn't have lab in the morning and i did, so i had the car in IMU... so, after class i was in library doing PBL n studying, then chin pei asked me to take her to clinic... yeah, so that was like my good deed of the day :)... so yalah, then the nice part was after CF, kexin cooked dinner for us... so it was nice to be able to have "home-cooked" food outside home... although not enough(after that have to have burger), but nice-lah... cos' a bit like family where everybody eat together n then after that talk abit den ciao back to own homes...
oh yeah, this is the last month i'm playing dotA, after this i'm officially going to quit :)... yeah, i find its kinda starting to "own" me;)... yeah... after April u won't see me dotA-ing anymore... partly also cos' money no enuff for this habit...

We rode into town the other day
Just me and my Daddy
He said I'd finally reached that age
And I could ride next to him on a horse
That of course was not quite as wide

We heard a crowd of people shouting
And so we stopped to find out why
And there was that man
That my dad said he loved
But today there was fear in his eyes

So I said "Daddy, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why is He dressed in that bright purple robe?
I'll bet that crown hurts Him more than He shows
Daddy, please can't you do something?
He looks as though He's gonna cry
you said he was stronger than all of those guys
addy, please tell me why
Why does everyone want him to die?"

Later that day the sky grew cloudy
And Daddy said I should go inside
Somehow he knew things would get stormy
Boy was he right
But I could not keep from wondering
If there was something he had to hide

So after he left I had to find out
I was not afraid of getting lost
So I followed the crowds
To a hill where I knew men had been killed
And I heard a voice come from the cross

And it said, "Father, why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why are they casting their lots for My robe?
This crown of thorns hurts Me more than it shows
Father, please can't You do something?
I know that You must hear My cry
I thought I could handle the cross of this size
Father, remind Me why
Why does everyone want Me to die?
When will I understand why?"

"My precious Son, I hear them screaming
I'm watching the face of the enemy beaming
But soon I will clothe You in robes of My own
Jesus, this hurts Me much more than You know
But this dark hour I must do nothing
Though I've heard Your unbearable cry
The power in Your blood destroys all of the lies
Soon You'll see past their unmerciful eyes
Look there below, see the child
Trembling by her father's side
Now I can tell You why
She is why You must die"

umm...yeah... this song was presented over easter during CF n TU... i actually wanted to post it on saturday, but then it would have made the post like a bit long.. n today i had nth much to post so post this song-lah...

but anyway, its worth remembering that no matter how "powerful" or "meaningful" an easter experience can be...whether at the calvary musical or a service in church... its pretty much worth nothing if it only lasts till monday

good friday, better saturday, best easter :P

actually i don't really know how easter is gonna be yet, but so far this year's easter weekend is a bit special for me-lah... :)
actually the past 2 weeks a bit susah-lah cos' new semester hasn't been easy-lah, readjusting schedules to fit church n IMU together... anyway, most days have been from morning to nite with me coming back to study only...
so on friday we had Good Friday service as usual, but this one was a bit cool-lah... cos' Ps. Ang organized this candle thingy where one of 7 candles gets blown out everytime someone reads thru a passage relating to the 1 of the 7 stages of Christ's death... ok, fast foward to today-lah...

actually today didn't really start out well... had CPR class in the morning... rush here n there to buy stuff n send ppl around... anyway, arrived at TU quite moodless-lah... ok, i'll get to the point...
this TU was the first time that i actually really planned to do something that i really wanted to do that would be quite uhh... meaningful n hopefully life impacting-lah... it's really very fulfilling when after you've learned something and you realize that it means so much to you that you want to share it with someone else...
anyway, i didn't really do much... i sort of delegated everything 4 everyone else to do, but basically wat we did was an activity where chocolate was offered to everyone in the room and chiyuan had to do 7 pumps for everyone, regardless of whether they accepted it or not... typing it out doesn't really seem like much... but when chiyuan was doing it, as it was when ian did it in CF, you really begin to understand how much Christ gave for us... seeing someone do 200+ pumps so that everyone in the room can get chocolates or donuts hardly begins to compare Jesus dying so that everyone in the world can get eternal life... but its stuff like this that helps us understand the power of the cross, or how much Jesus really gave...

looking forward to tomorrow... :)

replies to comments

i was actually going to post something else about doctors and the use of jargon, but i realized dat ppl hav been posting comments to my posts n i didn't reply... so bad of me... so i'm replying here :P

to bernard, concerning dotA:
don't dotA so much, the more you dotA the less money you have to spend on... uhh, on... on... hmm... oh no, dotA is the only thing i spend money on nowadays.. lol, no-lah... but seriously, no... don't dotA so much :P... if not u bcom like me... always borrowing money from ppl...

to my bro., concerning mei:
ehh... actually u HAVE met her b4... der was once she came in2 the house while u were playing piano, but i dun think u noticed :P... she's a gud fren-lah... but stays in kajang, so actually i only contact her thru mail, msn, phone, sms, snail mail, uhh... ok-lah... that probably covers all modern modes of communication, but yalah... contact quite not frequently, but meaningfully... ehh, no, in case you're wondering... there's no romantic connnexion, i failed at that about 5+ years ago:P

to all those jealous of me, concerning kinabalu:
haha... go yourself-lah... it actually will only cost about 500+ bucks if u just go for the climb :P... 1000+ if u go water rafting, parasailing, seeing fire-flies... and having lotsa fun-lah ;)... mwahaha...

to daniel, concerning spirituality in blogs:
ehh... heheh, kinda wierd but thanks for the "spiritual advice" :P lol, the roles are reversed ;) yeah...

i was browsing thru blogs just now... just doing something to get my mind of that stupid kinabalu report i have to finish b4 friday... haih, not to mention PBL which is so stressful nowadays...
n/eways... there's Daniel's "slog", which serves to entertain... my brother's blog, which get's u to think about life stuff n christianity... there's mei, bernard and many other ppl's blog which is abt daily life... i think as time goes on, if you're really into blogging... your blog sort of becomes a reflection of yourself and what you hold as important...
hmm... makes you think doesn't it... like i'm thinking now, how come my posts aren't as "spiritual" as some others i may find... what really do i hold as most important?

i got stuck in the rain just now as i was jogging, so after waiting for about 45 mins for the rain to stop i decided to run home in the rain... i'm not really sure why i'm mentioning this...

mei is 21... :)

actually not today-lah... this post should have been made yesterday
yesterday Mei turned 21 :) so she's now qualified adult...
she also officially graduated yesterday... so she's a qualified degree holding adult :)
unfortunately ofcourse i couldn't turn up for her party...its not that i dowan to go, but then difficult-lah to go for party that's in kajang... umm, but yalah, that's just a convenient excuse for me... yeah, i know i suck... what type of friend doesn't go for his best friend's 21st birthday party... main reason was because i don't know anybody there... yeah, memang patut dimarah... i admit i'm guilty...
anyways here's to 5... yeah, i think 5 years... of great friendship :) umm... at first i thought of repeating the sms i sent her... but on second thoughts maybe not... then again, since i've already saved it i might as well...

hi, i know dis prbly wont count 4 much cos im not turning up 2mr n a single sms isnt worth much compared 2 all de gifts u'll neway, HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY:) im really really sorry i'm not coming but its not bcos ur frenship isnt important.. thruout the years,u're the best fren i cud ever ask for..its been great talking n joking thru happy n sad..frens whom i meet at church n uni r many but u've been de only 1 whos stayed in my life even when we hardly meet..i couldn't ask 4 a truer frenship..frens 4ever..panda n bulldog:)

wah... so long :O... anyway, yeah... mei's the only one who's always been there even though she's probably the one who's every excuse not to be there... she's really been a blessing to me... a support to lean on... life without mei is like coffee without coffee mate... ice cream without cone... yalah, no mei tak boleh... semua orang juga patut ada satu mei :P...

Hope you have an ntv7 filled birthday ;)... you go girl!! :P

gospel camp

will be leaving for a camp (again)... tomoro until monday...
so anyway, at least i'm updating slightly more regularly :) and things are getting back to normal...
not hanging out in CC whole day, n having time to reply mails n stuff...
well... school's starting again, so some semblence of normality would be welcome relief to going out everyday since kinabalu and orientation...

Thursday, March 10, 2005


its kinda tough to get back into the habit of doing something once you've stopped for quite a while...
take blogging for example... after 2 weeks of non-blogging its suddenly so difficult to think up something which i think is mildly entertaining enough to put here... actually i don't think most of the stuff i put here is entertaining anyway...
haih... anyway... next week classes are starting again... so i've got just a few more days b4 i start hitting the books again... well, at least the holidays were good while it lasted...

Sunday, March 06, 2005


i never thought this would happen to me... but my blog is turning into a "joyce-like" blog...
and i'm starting to feel lazy to update... no, CANNOT!!
ok, at least this week i'm quite free...n won't be playing much dotA... so i'll have some time to update my blog again...
semester's starting next week, so that's something to look forward to... :) n yeah, orientation's over...
