The far off journey

Was at Sepang, near KLIA...and as I left with my family, I saw a plane fly by... somehow filling me with immense sadness. I was reminded that one day I would be the one flying off to complete my education abroad,leaving my family...for a few years at the very least.

At that moment my feelings alone could not express the mixture of feelings I felt inside. Yes, its still early, some say... but 3 years flies. and now, its just 2.5 years more?

Made me think and appreciate,if not more than ever, the time I have in Malaysia. To eat the roti canai's, roti jala's, chicken rice even, mum's cooking, chinese kuey teow mee hoon soup, dim sum etc...

I know whatever I say now, I 'm surely gonna miss my home, miss the comfort, miss the familarity. I know then, just like now, gonna struggle holding back my tears, thinking bout whats up back home and what I'm missing.

And I'm doing my best to savour it all now.

My heart secure

Its been weeks,wait, months since I started uni. Life hasn't been all that "wonderful" - if you define it by the world's standards. Yet, I've learnt that through it all, there is a Rock that is eternal, unchanging. When you consider the way the earth was made, when you consider all the things in history that happened that "I may have life, and life abundantly..." and the promises declared...

Because of that, I know that I will live through famine and war...
Because of that, I know my tomorrow, and the next day, and the next are secure...
Because of you, tasks in life,studies, seem to give more joy...

What more can I say?
I'm overwhelmed.



Just restarted my computer 3 times,each time waiting bout 2 mins...simply coz my computer isnt compatible with my thumbdrive. so, no pictures. *shakes head

Learning bout stuffs that I find interesting each day. did you know when you say "i love you from the depths of my heart" , you mean "from the heart valves"? (if i am not wrong...those medical students who do read pls correct me)...and the heart pumps blood, but gives no emotion! maybe, just maybe, in the future we will be saying "I love you from the depths of my brain, the serebrum to be exact...." Oh, and the lecturer sang in class, before the lecture. Apparently it is a very old song. But no wonder. This lecturer is older (than us anyway), has loads of experience and of course, the songs will come from his era...
"My heart is is Rosa Ria..."

IMU is crazy. Oh,I mean,the schedule.
Tuesday(yesterday) - Campus Friends Welcoming party
Thursday(tommorrow) - Music Club Welcome party
Friday(next next day) - Hellen Keller Welcome party ( actually I did not sign up, but I wanna go for the sign language class, so might as well go and know people)
Next Tuesday - AMSA Welcoming Party.

Ah, the craze.

More awesome than I know...More than enough for me

What we see on the internet sometimes i so , so intriguing. No way of finding out whether its right...whether its photoshopped (in this case) or if the information is reliable. Nevertheless, it gives us much amusement, and enjoyment to read / see, a good form of entertainment. :]

Amazing huh?

Thank You

It was yesterday that I realised the value of a who takes the time to care, to listen, to share...who truly understands and not lip-service...who through actions show me that I'm not alone in this walk where the end of the tunnel sometimes cannot be seen by our limited hindsight. It takes faith, it takes courage, it takes confidence...which needs time and care to build up.

In retrospect, I have friends who really care for me - friends who love me for who I am and all I am, imperfect as I am. And I am truly grateful for the absence of judgemental spirit and instead the warmth, love and care that they shower in my life, the joy that they all bring.

Oh, I know I am far-nie. Too farnie at times, that you hold your hands to your head, not knowing whether to laugh or to cry. I understand. Because you all know that laughter is the best medicine...and sometimes giving something for everyone to laugh about, breaks the tensions, everyone becomes happier~...

And it definitely helps when it comes to adjusting. Yup,had lectures on stress, and managing stress. Somehow, though, I think those who are lecturing are also under some kind or another of stress. Unavoidable. The key is how we deal with it, how we decide to view it -positively? turn it into a drive to motivate us on?

A few years ago, I went for an international competition. The director was nice, and as I bumped into him that morning, I told him that "I had butterflies in my stomach". Later ,during the opening ceremony, he spoke and sayed "there was this young lady who spoke to me about butterflies in her you know that you can convert it into positive energy?" kinda stuff. But I tell you, it was the friends with me, who supported and smiled when I made the worst mistakes - the friends who encouraged me, never to give up...

The friends then and now who encouraged me, and am still encouraging me to persevere - thank you. You may not know it, but you have further renewed my strength to continue walking on, and I thank you for that.

Some random stuff

Hmmm,havn't blogged for quite a while. just pensive, many things going through my mind...just as we all rush through life.

Oh, I have a few pictures to post up. sayang-nya not uploaded yet.

Was reading chicken soup for the unsinkable....and couple soul. and i realised how much i really treasure, how much i really am blessed. so many times we wander through life, trying to make it go faster...but not slowing down to savour its presence.

And when I realised that there is still true love to be found in this world...I just was(and am still) so, so touched. When all the negative things start to seep in slowly...all I actually need to do is to look at a different perspective, to look up at the sky perhaps, to look at my handphone... *winks

Suddenly the world doesn't seem so glum anymore. :]
