Let It Snow

I love it when it snows. It is so pretty and magical. Just like I love the smell of rain at home.

The snow complimented the carol service at the chaplaincy yesterday. The chorus was so good but because it was slow, plus I was cold, tired and hungry, I tried not to nod off to slumber. I guess I am just too tired from all the work that I have been trying to do. The malt wine after the service did wake me up for a while but I just had to sleep when I got back to my room. Thankfully my cousin called me to wake me up. Otherwise, God knows how long I will be sleeping. So I woke up and realised I was hungry again!

Last week of term already. How fast has this term fly by. I have been so busy working this term. I really look forward to seeing my bro tommorow. I don't know if it is with all brothers but this little brother of mine always makes me laugh.

Other stuffs to look forward to. Seeing my brother tommorow. Flat xmas party on Friday. Going to Wales on Saturday. Laughing it off with my brother at every other little thing,that other people find it hard to understand what is so funny about every little thing. Off to Italy on Tuesday! I always wanted to see Italy, it is like a dream come true. Then back to Cov for LCGC concert. All nighter anime watching with my brother. Head down south to my cousins' home for xmas. Do some touristy thingy in London. Go on road trips with my cousins.

oooh.. I am so excited!! Trying not to think when I should squeeze in my 4 assignments for the hols. 3 essays and 1 book review! Will sit down to figure it now, or else I am screwed. I need to focus and get it done somehow.

But other than the annoyingness of work, life is awesomely awesome!

Friendships

I can only say I have been very lucky. I don't have that many friends but the few that I have are really precious to me.
I used to tell my friends everything but I guess after some bad experiences with friends, I no longer trust friends as much as I would like to. It is just my nature to share joy and keep my sorrows.
As for friends telling me stuffs, I normally won't bug them to tell me if they don't. But I would love of course to hear from them. And if I ever bug you to tell me stuffs, it is because I truly regard you as a close friend. Otherwise why would I be bothered.
Friends come and go in my life. Some more special than others. I have had so many close friends who enter my life briefly. I felt so sad when I had to part with them. There was even a point in my life that I thought perhaps I should not put so much into friendships because at the end of the day, it is the inevitable parting which pains my heart.
I told this to a friend I met last year and she told me something so beautiful. She said 'Perhaps it is God's way of telling you that everything in life is so impermanent.'
I also realised that God was there for me through my most painful moments in my life. He was always there in me,giving me strength.
I gave up on friends because I lost faith in them. But God just keep sending amazing friends into my life. As if He is asking me not to give up on frienships just because of nasty experiences.And I feel that indeed I am learning once more to embrace friendships and open my heart to trust friends just like before.
Friends are people who love you for the real you that you are.
I am grateful to be surrounded by these people who loves me just for the me that I am.

Goblet of Fire

Watched Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire tonight. It was a fun nite out with my flat mates. Satisfied our cravings for fast food after watching Supersize Me a few weeks ago. We had diner at Mc Donalds. It wasn't that satisfying actually.
What I think of the movie? I thought the child actors and actresses have all grown up and can act so much better now. The movie was actually much better than I had expected. The previous movies were such disappointment. I guess movies almost always never do justice to the books. Many parts were not included. And I thought Hermionee straightened her hair for the Yule Ball. How can they forget about that. Victor Krum and Fleur were not what I had imagined them to be. Some parts were cheesier than the books. Gosh, am I being over critical? I guess it is because Goblet of Fire is my fave book of all the Harry Potter books.
I remember the first time I saw my younger cousins reading the first Harry Potter book, I just thought to myself that it really is not my kinda book. It probably is very kiddish. But then I started reading and I was hooked and had to get my own copy of the book. The recent books have not met my expectations but I sure look forward to read the last book soon. And yes I do think Snape is a good guy and that Albus Dumbledore has a horocroux somewhere. The latter will probably come alive again like Gandalf in LOTR. It is a bit disappointing that the story line in the last book seem to have so much simmilarities to LOTR. The uniqueness of it all when it first started seem to be slowly losing some of its magical powers on me. But in spite of all these rants, I still love reading the books and hope JK Rowling will come up with an ending to remember for all of us !

Its Friday Night

Went to Pure with Stella and Fel.
It has been a long time since the last time.
I guess I am not much of a Party Girl. I am just a small town girl. There aren't any clubs around my lil town. ( Maybe they have now.) I can count the number of times I have been out with all my fngers, no need even to use my toes.

It is my first Pure. The only other Student Unions event that I have been are Top B, Latin Nite and Metropolitan. That was like in my first year. My fave is still Latin Nite, which my best friend, Grace and I had such a wicked time. It was unforgetable night. Top B is too cheesy. I think Ikon in Coventry is much,much better though. I only went there like at the end of every term in my first year with my AV flatmates.

I didn't go for any last year. As for Pure, it was actually pretty awesome. I think the company made it more fun. Thank you thank you very much for the company my dear friends. You gals rock the night and you all were awesome !!

Picture have to copy from Stella and Fel … gonna do that tommorow.. its time to get some sleep…

Bisous..

Girls nite out..

Jumbo Diner

The chefs..

The food..

And more food…

There are times when I wish I have someone special to be with but then I realised that God has made this time now for me to spend it with friends instead of just one special person. God made time for everything so beautifully. I don't know why some people give me the weird look when I say I am single and not searching. When the time is right it comes and if it doesn't then thats just life. When it comes and I feel it is right I shall embrace it. For now, I thank God for giving me time to learn more about myself, to learn to Love myself, the people around me, and more importantly to learn to love and trust Him with all my heart.

A Paradox

I realize that I am the most uncompetitive person. Played badminton today, I feel really stress playing today. There seem to be expectation. Expectation so high that I fear I am not up to it. I kept missing my shots today. I played really badly today. I am not sure if I did the right thing by putting myself into a commitment to play the mixed tournaments next term. I feel like backing out. I love playing but I can’t play competitively I get nervous and scared. I am just not a competitive person. I don’t care about winning or losing but yet I want to do well, and not let whoever I play with down by not trying hard enough
As I rode my bike back home, I thought of a long time ago conversation I had with an old friend. Life is really ironic. It is a paradox. The person you like almost always seem so far and distant. On the other hand you don’t really like the person who likes you.
How many people would actually wait? And how many would actually just take the easier way and be loved instead of to love? Is it fair to be loved more and not to love as much in return?
Life is never as straight forward as it should be.

Here I Am

I the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
I will dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I have made the stars and night
I will make the darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I sent?

I will break the hearts of stone
Yearn them hearts with love alone
I will speak my word to them
Whom shall I sent?

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

I the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them
My hand will save
Find this bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them
Whom shall I sent?

Here I am Lord
Is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go Lord
If you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart.

La vie est une hymne, chante-le.

One of my fave hymns... Je l'aime..

The End Is Near

I am so happy that it is week 9 and looking forward to see my dearest lil brother next Wednesday.

Never mind that I screwed up my French test. It is over.

Had an awesome weekend. My weekend in pics…

Another potluck on Friday. It was hillarious seeing Stella and Daffy trying to mimic each other.
Chris came to see Fel. It was nice to see him too, he is one of the nicest people I know. Saw Mus too though briefly. He probably had a hard time making sure he sees everyone during his short visit.
Je me suis bien amuse!

And Sunday Stella kindly made me diner again!

J'adore des pates.

I tried to make egg tarts again after a really long break. I still can't get the pastry to be flaky like the ones we get in shops. Pourquoi ? Maybe it is the flour or the egg. I shall not give up. I will try again to get the pastry right.

La vie est une beatitude, savoure-la.

Plain and Simple

Numb

I breathe and I breathe…
The heart beats with the rhythm of my pace…
The birds sing with the drumming of my heart…
But I felt nothing to the music that I hear.

I ran and I ran…
The cold wind against me as I speed…
The sun’s rays felt warm on my face…
Yet I felt nothing but numb.
