Another end of term…I have had 4 'end of terms'... Let me think back what I did for all the end of terms I had here in Warwick. Nothing too exciting cause I can hardly remember.
1st end of term = first English xmas party with the great great people of Kitchen 2 and 3 of AV2 last year. It was good fun. Then packed stuffs and trolleyed them with Tesco trolleys to Cryfield 1.
2nd end of term = Had to cook everything Shu Bei and I had in the fridge before packing and moving to Cryfield again for Easter holidays. Thank God we had Tesco trolleys!
3rd end of term = Exams! Packing once more. This time stuffs go into the containers near the Health Center. And yes last minute shopping for presents to bring back to Malaysia. Realized that there really is nothing much that you can get here that you can't get back in Malaysia. I kept asking people what is special in UK. No one seem to be able to answer that.
4th end of term – Last term… went to Singapore Society Xmas diner which I thought was really good. Then, had a most memorable Revelation Carol Service at the Coventry Cathedral. Had 2 bloody tests. Packed for my 10 day Europe tour. (Athens, Berlin, Salzburg and Vienna)
Now comes 5th end of term… nope no more packing this end of term. Feeling very tired by the amount of work that is piling. And yes looking forward to Rev's Concert which I am sure is going to be fantastic. And yes looking forward to the hols but no not looking forward to the 2 tests that I will have to do before that.
Dillemma...Not sure whether I want the term to end or not.To end or not to end...

At my life..
I realize I am blessed..
Blessed with so much goodness..
Hardly any sadness..
At how far I have come..
I realize how much I have achieved..
But I am proud of all that I did..
At all the angels I have met..
I realize I am lucky..
To be loved by so many..
For there will always be angels by my side…
As I look back no more..
I realize how fast time pass me by..
But I still yearn for tommorow to come..
A new chapter with all its gifts and blessings….

It snowed today and though I am no longer a little girl, it still felt so magical looking at the little white drops from the sky. It enchants me just as much as watching raindrops through the window at home in Malaysia and I love the smell of rain. I thought I was weird until my best friend told me she liked the smell of rain too and apparently the nicest smell of rain are those in my little hometown, Muar. :-)

Can't get this song I learnt at Warwick Revelation off my headů
It is to You I give the glory..
It is to You I give the praise..
Cause You have done so much for me..
And I will bless Your Holy Name..
It is to You, Holy Father..
No one like you..
And I will bless your name..
Bless your name..
And I will bless your name..
I have a goldfish memory and normally I can't remember lyrics or tunes unless I keep repeating it to myself. But I can't get this lovely song out of my head. It has beautiful words and hearing it sung just takes your breath away. Joined Revelation middle of last term and I so regret not joining it when I was in my first year. Everyone is so friendly and singing is the best thing to do after a hard day's work!

Touched by today's final hymn at mass.
Feel and live the present. Just for today...
Just for today by Sister Mary Xavier.
Lord, for tomorrow and its needs I do not pray;
Keep me, my God, from stain of sin just for today.
Help me to labor earnestly and duly pray;
Let me be kind in word and deed, Father, today.
Let me no wrong or idle word unthinking say;
Set Thou a seal upon my lips through all today.
Let me in season, Lord, be grave, in season gay;
Let me be faithful to Thy grace, dear Lord, today.
And if, today, this life of mine should ebb away,
Give me Thy sacrament divine, Father, today.
So for tomorrow and its needs I do not pray;
Still keep me, guide me, love me, Lord, through each day.

This is a poem I received for V-day last year from a very very good friend. I dedicate this to all people still in search of Love and to those who have found true Love.
_ I lost my heart in Heidelberg's fair city
Twas in a gentle summer night
I was in love, so deep in love enatangled
Her rosebud mouth was laughing with delight.
When at the gates at last we parted
I kissed farewell her knowing in the end
My heart was lost in Heidelberg forever
My heart still beats at the Neckar strand.
One evening I remember I was not twenty yet
Her hair was light and golden
The lips I kissed so red
The air was blue and blissful
The Neckar a silver sea
And then I know, and then I knew
What the matter was with me.
Again is on the Neckar the wine
In bloom, as then,
The years have been a passing
I am a lonely man
And if you asked a fellow why
He did no one find
I told you, friends, I told you friends, what there is on my mind.
What has become of you dear
Since I had to be wise
Old Heidelberg, so beautiful
You German paradise
I went away in sorrow
Left happiness,ease and wine
I think of you, I long for you
You are my "auld lang syne"._
I don't know what others think of this poem but it always bring a tear to my eye when I read it. _Just recently I realize that Love is when it hurts so much to Love someone. _
