My Friends live in My HDD

Since I started this blog I noticed I haven't showed you any photos other than my dirty pair of shoes. So I'm just going to show you a photo of the people I love taken from a recent mission trip to Chiang Mai.

More next time.

Waiting for Him and His White Horse to Come Around

(Not an entirely original title, but I like! LOL)

I was on Facebook this lovely and cool Monday night when I saw an update from my secondary school classmate.

It was a photo album of her pre-wedding photos.

So I clicked on it and saw beautiful photos of her in her beautiful wedding gown and her groom. In various locations, poses. Beautiful and elegant. She looked happy and as beautiful as an angel.

Looking at the photos I can't help but sighed. My friend is a year older then me (she was in remove class). That makes her 24 this year and she's getting married.

Me? I'm still waiting, waiting, waiting....

If I tell you that I'm not afraid of living my life alone and not getting married, I would be lying. There is no need to elaborate, the reasons are obvious- I love companionship. Someone to share life together.

As much as I would love to have that kind of companionship, I'm not going out on random dates and giving my number out to any Tom, Dick and Harry. My friends think I should go actively search for 'him' and hunt 'him' down instead of sitting around and mind my own business.

But I want to believe in God's timing. For him to bring the right person, at the right time. I remember a very interesting analogy of God's timing. It's like a father would not give his 6 month old baby a complicated toy because the child doesn't know to how play with it. Worse, it may pose as a choking hazard to the infant!

Put that in my situation, I'd like to believe that God will only make it happen when I am ready. Like a child too young to handle a complicated toy, He's probably waiting for the time when I'm old enough to fully appreciate the toy. So I guess as I wait for the right timing, I should just continue to concentrate to grow in Him and commit this desire to Him.

So I'll continue waiting. Trusting in God's timing. ;)

I just kinda hope that it'll be sooner la. Cepat sikit, boleh tak? Hehe.

'Saya Anak Malaysia'

The question of leaving this country has never really occured to me. For one who always see traveling as a luxurious and rare experience, the idea is very attractive- experiencing different cultures and ways of life, meeting new people. But to be painfully realistic, my family would not be able to afford such a move.

Reading this article really got me thinking. What is the breaking of point for me to decide that I want to leave Malaysia? With all the political unrest and recent attacks on churches in the nation, some of my Christian friends are talking about leaving before it brews into serious things like persecution. Some of the people I know have already left even.

It's easy to think of reasons to leave. Like the saying goes- the grass is always greener at the other side. Like the author of the article, I'm also turning the question into a positive note- What makes me to stay?

Very simple actually. Like I said, I don't get the luxury of traveling a lot but I've had the experience of walking down the slum areas of Kathmandu and interacted with some villagers of an outskirt of Dumai, Indonesia. Life was hard for them, things and money are difficult to come by. Education is scarce, almost unobtainable. Their government is in a bigger mess.

In those circumstances, I was proud to say 'Saya Anak Malaysia'.

I still see a hope for our country to arise. For leaders to do what is right, and not act on their personal interest. For the people not to make rash decisions. For funds to be channeled properly. I still want to believe greater things have yet to come to this nation. That Malaysia would come out of it victorious, by God's grace.

If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Simple Pleasures of Life

I enjoy having a nice cup of coffee while I curl on the sofa with a good book.

I enjoy writing into a notebook with a good gel pen.

I love my quiet time with God.

Discussing political issues stimulates my mind.

I enjoy getting to know a person deeper and understand how they truly feel about an issue without having to judge them superficially.

I enjoy having passengers in my car and sing along to a familiar songs while I drive.

I enjoy singing on top of my lungs while driving.

I enjoy good conversations while driving.

Actually. I really enjoy driving. ;)

Stalking people on FB is fun. I often find things that surprises me.

I enjoy laughing to good lame jokes. Not the seriously lame ones, though.

I enjoy telling lame jokes and observe the look on their faces.

I enjoy talking silly things and laughing with my parents and siblings.

I enjoy a long hot shower after a long day at work.

I enjoy knowing and experiencing different cultures.

I enjoy reading random articles on Wikipedia.

I honestly enjoy... my life. My life itself is a proof of God's faithfulness, grace and goodness. :)

I'm not making any resolutions this year because 80% of what I've set last year still needs to be fulfilled.

And I feel like crap.
