back temporarily from the hiatus.. until unspecified date
Whoa, its been ages since i last posted here.. i'm surprised i still remembered the password to log in :P hehe. I've been back in M'sia for the summer holidays; in KL for the first ~2 months and now back in Kuching, chilling and bumming.. but its all coming to an end in two weeks time :( i head back to Melb on the 19th, with a mini vacation in Indonesia from the 15th-18th of the month.
I had the awesome privilege of attending two weddings while i was in KL, Joy and Kien's in december and Alvin and Jess' just last week :) really beautiful, both of them! there's something so special about the ceremony, always gives a good feeling inside :) Congrats to the two couples, and wish them both very happy and blessed lives together! Pictures of both ceremonies up on facebook :)
It's been great being back and getting to spend time with my bestie n ex-roomie Tracy (staying with her in KL) and catching up with the rest of the gang in Subang.. mein, gonna miss spending time with all of you guys, and the girls' overnights too.. cannot wait till Trace gets to Melb to visit! open invitation to the rest of u to come visit too! Free tour-guiding services available ;)
got to spend Christmas and New Year's with Josh, between Sg and KL. Our first Christmas n New Year's together, so it was pretty special :) miss u already! I doubt anybody really comes to check for updates here anymore, but anyway, i also started up a project on Youtube called songsforj. take a guess who its for :) anyway, i just posted up two new videos today, so here they are:
That's it from me! Goodnight from Kuching :)

man, can't believe uni starts in two days.. i'm missing everything about this holiday already.
I think i learnt abit more about myself over the last few weeks, and opened eyes to issues always known to be there, but never got around to addressing. God does things to and through your life, and just kind of availing myself to the changes.
Also, if you ever wanted to know something about someone, just ask, and more often than not, they're quite happy to talk to someone about it :) lol. There's a balance of caution and not holding back that everyone struggles with, so here's to finding the balance.
Anyway, while in Sydney, we checked out this little market by The Rocks; here's some funny t-shirt slogans we found at a stall there :)
'I'm smiling because I have no idea what's going on''yeah, be reasonable. pfft.'
Since i reformatted my com, i've lost the photo editting program, and have yet to download a new one. There's probably an easy way to make my vertical pics vertical, but i'm kind of com-illiterate :P teach me if you can! lol. ok, this one is slightly mean..
but this is really cute! lol
There was this other stall that sold these costume masks.the shop owner.
pity i didn't get a shot of him talking in that thing! funny as! lolRawr
Andrew, Stephen and Swee.
Hahah Swee does a very adorable/convincing terrified look!
After we snapped that shot, the owner informed us it was $2 to take a picture with the masks. Being asian, we immediately said 'ohh', thanked him and left. lol.
Also while in Sydney, a bunch of us went to use the ladies, and found this stuck on the wall:(again, its sideways! sorry!)
How awesome is this dispenser??
They should totally have this in Melb, it would be a lifesaver for many a women found in crisis.

I don't think i'm going to LA anymore. I don't think i'm going to LA anymore. I'm gonna steer clear, burn up in your atmosphere. Cos i'd die if i saw you, die if i didn't see you there..
Where ever i go, whatever i do, wonder where i am in my relationship to you. Where ever you go. Where ever you are. i watch your life play out in pictures from afar.

Got my results back for the semester, and got 3HDs and 2 distinctions. Thank God for seeing me through those stressed out moments and times i thought i may not make it. This change may work out well, after all :)
Got back from the Hillsongs/Sydney trip yesterday, and it was the awesomeness ever! lol. lack of sleep, great ppl, yummy food, and awesome awesome conference words, worship n teaching. So looking forward to next years :) you guys should really sign up if you can! no regrets at all!
Will post some pics and more updates on the conference soon, but for now, here's some pics of the last few months and our Mt. Dandenong trip a couple of weeks back. Really fun day!

Brother Jon's is this nice, quaint, family-runned restaurant up Mt. Dande that has a lil wedding chapel-esqe touch to it. They have a pretty garden out back for wedding picture-taking, a cottage for the honeymoon/wedding prepping and even an exclusive pretty bathroom for the bride n bridegroom to get ready in! really sweet

oh its another social casualty; score one more for me... i'm never speaking up again, it only hurts me. i'd rather be a mystery, than she deserting me.
i'm never speaking up again, i'm never speaking up again, i'm never speaking up again.

Monday, the twenty second of June
'whoa, your love is like bad medicine...'
haha doing some studying with itunes playing thru my songlist by artists, and as it hits Bon Jovi's, man, i can't help but feel like i've been transported to another time :) lol.
'.. whoa, shake it up, just like bad medicine, ain't no doctor that can cure my disease..'
exams have gone well so far, despite the major stressing over the first 3 papers, i reckon things should be ok. I'm slightly stressed about the final paper, but i believe after thurs afternoon, i'll be feeling fine about it.
big shout-out to josh shin -> all the best w ur studying dude, and hope ur doing good over there :)
CG social on friday's gonna be futsal and Transformers, to celebrate the beginning of short term freedom till next sem :) the bunch of us head out to Sydney for Hillsongs conference on the 6th, and between then i envision lazy mornings, chilling and catching up with ppl i haven't seen in a while (jane, jovial, amanda C! have to catch up this hols!)
my mom's just left to go back to m'sia tonight.. i gave her a bigg hug when she left. gonna miss having her here.
my playlist seems attracted to oldies!
'you find me there, you'll search no more..'

its one of those days where..
... you wake up and look in the mirror and hate your hair, cos its too long/too short/too thick/just not working for you
... you stare at your notes and your mind wanders off topic every 2 sentences
... you silently curse your lecturer for not knowing how to get to the point in his lecture slides
... you silently curse your lecturer for giving ambiguous open-ended information that's so detailed in the unnecessary as well as necessary processes
... you silently curse your lecturer for not knowing how to stay on topic while lecturing, resulting in haphazard note-taking in the margins that is not even related to the topic of that weeks' discussion
... and again for committing typos that camoflauge themselves in sentences that look credible, confusing you later when another weeks' slides disproves said sentence (zzzzomg)
its just one of those days stress and frustration gets the better.
