I cannot tolerate rude services

(I wrote this in to the BANK Though I am angry with that person, but since it does not concern the whole bank, I shall reserve writing out name of bank. Name of bank shall be susitituted with BANK.) Dear BANK officer, This feedback is from is a very disappointed client hoping to offer some advice to your company in hope that such matters will not happen again. Today, I went to BANK Ang Mo Kio to open a savings account. Officer in charge of servicing me was polite and well mannered. She advised me that I already have a campus account that was opened a few years ago. I didn't know that the account is still existing as I didnt deposit money into the account as first instructed. Anyway, she later advised me to call the card centre to ask for a replacement of the debit card as I have already misplaced the previous card. And so I made the call and a man answered the phonecall. I was already intimidated at first by the man as he asked of my enquiries in a very impolite manner. He seemed to be questioning me as if I do not know what am I doing by calling the card centre. Later, he asked for my IC no and said he will help me check my account. After awhile, this guy came back and said I do not have a campus account. I told him that I JUST went to the Ang Mo Kio branch and as advised by the lady, I DO HAVE A CAMPUS ACCOUNT, so how can it be that I don't have a campus account. Anyway, the man sounded very impatient and asked me to hold the line and said he will check for me again. Then he came back and repeated to me my IC number in a very impatient and exasperated manner and said that indeed I DO NOT have a campus account though I "may have a savings or current account or whatever". I feel this customer service officer is EXTREMELY rude and uses very inappropriate words to serve the client. This entire phonecall then left me feeling very disturbed. Having confidence in BANK as a bank which provides good services that can meet my needs, I am truly very disappointed in my experience today. Though not all BANK customer service officers are that ill-mannered, but just one will be enough to spoil the reputation of your company. I did not get the name of the guy, but I called in with my telephone no xxxxxxxx, and if there is any way to track down this officer, I hope you can offer him some good advice to not repeat his folly. Thank you very much, and I would appreciate you getting back to me reagarding any follow up actions. Yours Sincerely Leong Tim Tim

A NEW world somewhere

I suddenly find this song so nice. I think it's so true that when things around you make you feel that there's really not much of a hope in this world, you know that at least when you look towards heaven, there you see the TRUE hope and comfort that will keep you going to the end... A NEW WORLD SOMEWHERE C F There's a new world somewhere D7 G7 We call the promised land C Em And I'll be there someday F G Since Jesus holds my hand Am F He is always here beside me G F Em In all things that I do C G7 C For I know I'll never find a Friend so true Chorus: Am F C It's a long long journey so stay by my side Am G When I walk through' the storm, Lord, G7 Be my guide, be my guide C F D7 G7 If they gave me a fortune, my pleasure would be small C Em F G I could lose it all tomorrow and never mind at all Am F But if I should lose my way Lord G F Em You'll show me what to do C G7 C For I know I'll never find a Friend so true There is always Jesus to guide us on the way And He'll lead us someday where angels sing they say If I should search the whole world over until life is through I do know I'll never find a friend so true lala~

Being FAITHFUL and holding FAITH

Does being faithful equate holding your faith well?

woooohooooo.....I received an ecard from a super sweet sister! =) Like such a long time never had some things so sweet that touches ur heart in this manner le. THANKS!!!

I think I am quite like my mum

When I am sad or angry, I don't show it out, especially to the person who affected me, all the more I will show like I don't care a single bit. I will be very hostile to the person, even though in my heart how I long for the love and concern of that person. When one of my friends once commented how puzzled he felt when I am very angry or sad, I can still have the energy to scold him; which made him felt I wasnt that sad after all. But actually I was very sad why my friend didnt know how to show the appropriate concern for me at that time that I needed a friend. I didnt think that was odd of me until I finally got to be in "my friend's" shoes and my mum is now that person who is very sad and hurt, yet still show like she didnt care a single bit and do all sorts of things to make me angrier. When Tianmin mentioned that her mum was that kinda after being angry, will ultimately soften her heart kinda person, I thought that's just normal and applies to every person, except my mum bcos mum can be angry for thousands of years. I thought I was not like her. But now I realise I am. I do not want to give in, especially at times when I feel deeply hurt and unfairly treated. But good thing, there is a God to change me. So conclusion is, I am very like my mum. ************************* I love computer genius(es). For goodness sake, who would know what script this script that thing? Yet for today, 2 computer heroes came to my rescue when first I couldnt go into windows (because I kpo go and compress windows) and then second I clicked a link with no response. The heroes rescued me and now I am a happy gal being able to surf the net freely! =D ************************* A well mannered salesgal certainly makes your day. Was at Robinson's (or is it John Little? Or is there no more John Little?) today when a very friendly salesgal stood some distance apart and said "good afternoon" with a 45 degree bow. Not too intimidating as to walk straight to your face and like as if asking "eh, wanna buy things de or not? dun wanna buy dun look here look there hor". But she is not. Makes me feel comfortable and at ease of shopping at Robinson's. A good impression too of the place which has such well mannered stuffs. She later went on to walk around and said Good Afternoon to many people. I guess they must have felt as happy as I do. =) ********************** Raffles City always has those very nice exhibitions going on de hor? Today was by Very Special Arts and there's this erm, how to say, hearing impaired person sitting there and selling things to you. They have very nice art pieces and handicrafts too! =)

Call me a Wang Ba

Yep, I KNEW IT!!! I knew she was going to somehow compromise on her timings after I said I want her son no more. And now I said ok in teaching him once again. I'm teaching the tyrant mum's son!!! I cant believe it! Who is the I-DI-OT? I AM THE IDIOT! Bleah...I should be slapped........................ And I'm going out now to teach him. Now, like NOW.

My GAWDddddEEDADDdd

The Bishan Tyrant Mum just called me. AIYAH!!!!!! Can don't come and fan me OR NOT!!! Haha....the first thing she said is,"Tim ah, I heard from Esther you want to quit ah?" And I said,"Ya..." And she sounded surprised, "How come?" I said,"Ya, because I think our timings cant match." And she laughed and at this moment, her mobile rang and I think she needs to pick up so she said she will call me back shortly. I hope her phonecall will last a thousand years. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......very fan la.... Arghhh....

Better dun do wrong thgs.

I am SO happy I am out from the nightmare of the Bishan-tuition-tyrant-mum. I think she should go and do some soul searching because where got tutors wanna be so 委屈 to earn that peanuts from you and to still put up with ur nonsense? Yup, talked to my agent just now and she understood I do not wanna teach anymore and said she will help me tell the mum. I pity her because I think she will have to get some bullshit from the mum again. Yep, sorry but the mum's talk really sounded like bullshit. Even Tianmin feels that maybe the mum thinks she is the Prime Minister, and I said maybe she feels she's the President, so everyone has to listen to her. SO annoying. Anyway, after being overjoyed, I sent a sms to Tianmin which goes like this "Wah great...I've gotten rid of the stupid bishan parent finally,Good thing my agent also very 爽快 like 'oh so you dun want to teach already la? Ok, I'll call her" And then I deliriously scrolled thru the phonebook and subconsciously selected my agent's number and -- sent it to her!!! Haha...later Tianmin say I die liao, cos I scolded the parent. Wah, I really bo chap man....heng I didnt say any thing bad about my agent haha... So better dun do wrong thing because one day they will come to light. =) lala~ Actually I loogee 2 lessons which is ard 40 bucks. But ya, at least I earned myself an extremely nice blueberry puff and a cup of coke when I waited for them half an hour and the maid served me that. Ok la....at least now I'm cut off from the yeeky parent. FOREVER!

The Golden Rule

So it feels this good to be nice to people. I really do feel good helping Tianmin do that clip for her presentation though I am seriously not obligated to help her at all since after all, it's her work. But it's that thing about feeling satisfied with my work; and also the hope of other people helping me when one day I need this help. Going to wake Roger up at 4am later while he goes take a nap though I really have nothing much to do but to play some games and type some stuffs; though I can jolly well take the choice to go and sleep and choose not to let go of some things and be mean to him. But it really feels this good to be nice doesnt it? I would hope that if one day that I need people waking me up when I am duper tired and my neck is going to break (and so he says) that I will have that people or person there for me too. And probably I should be doing it first. Whatever I hope for others to do to me, I do it to others. - The Golden Rule Probably I also have what it takes to give at this moment, with more than sufficient rest and 4 off days ahead. Just reminds me of yet another of such incident that when I mentioned to Liansi that I hope to meet fortnightly instead of weekly, I increased her fees automatically to slightly more than 1.5 times, that of a hourly basis I mean. Because she too is earning a living, and though she doesnt come that frequently, still, it is a month affair. And it's really unfair if I give her the normal fees divided into half. Cos I also hope that my students (or parents) will be sensitive to my financial needs if ever I meet with such a person in the future. The Golden Rule stated clearly in the Holy Bible: So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you... Matt 7:12

Can there really be such coincidences when you are sharing to someone ur struggles and ur story near perfectly matches a song? When the Rain Comes When the rain comes It seems that everyone has gone away When the night falls You wonder if you shouldn't find some place To run and hide Escape the pain But hiding's such a lonely thing to do I can't stop the rain From falling down on you again I can't stop the rain But I will hold you 'til it goes away When the rain comes You blame it on the things that you have done When the storm fades You know that rain must fall on everyone So rest awhile It'll be alright No one loves you like I do When the rain comes, I will hold you...... Thanks Xinying.... =) Now I am just thinking, is this song sung in the perspective of God? If it is, then some parts are not very true lei like "I can't stop the rain". How can God not be able to stop the "rain"? But if in the perspective of a loving friend, the "No one loves you like I do" also not very true lei. How can someone ever say, "No one loves you like I do"? Our love is so finite and selfish. And there's always a GOD who loves more than we do. Much much more than we can ever imagined. "Dearest friends, you were always so careful to follow my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away you must be even more careful to put into action God's saving work in your lives, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. 13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey him and the power to do what pleases him." Phil 2:12-13
Done another kinda animated still picts clip for Tianmin's presentation tomorrow. So happened that I had ample time, and I felt very bad for wasting her time to come my home for video editing when in the end my fire wire port brtrayed my trust for it. Waiting for the 40 mega-freaking-byte file to be transferred and nothing to do for awhile. I rested at home today even though it was Sunday and I should be in church enjoying the time with God and His people. Rested not because I was tired but rather because I left no strength to move anymore and I just needed to rest. Issues at heart that had gone on for long that had tire me out. I am apprehensive as I typed the paragraph above. People have always seen me as problematic just because they get to know problems that are happening in my life; and by not fully understanding the situation some more. But, suddenly, I thought, I care no more about what you think of me. There are things that are worthy to be think about and some not. Seems like what I just typed is not a worthy thought because in the end I just get weary about my efforts being put in all these years, and get weary about how people assess people; even for Christians. Anyway, I am pretty satisfied with my work of the clip. =) Went for tuition just now in the evening and met my first ever (and I hope last ever) tyrant parent. I have never seen or met such a kinda parent before who probably thinks that the whole world revolves around her. Timing unsuitable, insists you change. Insists you coming on certain days. Insists you come. But I told her, actually if in this case, I think you find a new tutor. And it shall be so. I have my principles which I will not compromise. Don't come telling me that I should go and teach your son and not teach my kids in church; or that I can be late for cell group, I dun think thats for you to teach me. Anyway, as I think back, I do feel grateful at how God has provided for me jobs and tuition assignments along the way so that I can be earning more and spending my time more fruitfully than to laze at home and do nothing productive. I have experienced how HE provides, and I believe He will continue to provide for me.... Sleepy liao~ =)

VERY VERY VEXED!!!

My comp's fire wire port is not working right and Tianmin came all the way to my home wanting to do video editing, and NOW SHE CAN'T and I'm EQUALLY VEXED. Argggghhhhhhh.....

MMS post....

Today's finally a bit of rest day for me! =) These few days have been rushing here and there and there and here for tuition and then work as well. Even though I teach tuition today as well, at least I dun need to go and work and now I have around 3 hours to rest at home..... I wanna sleep! haha~ But ok la, must spend the time fruitfully. Suddenly feel like blogging and realise that I have edited some time ago those picts I took with my cam phone, so a simple entry it shall be, with many mms =) [Using Flickr, hope it turns out fine] Flickr doesnt seem to be that nice after all. At least not for an entry like this. Never mind it.

Roger was too engrossed to be bothered with my photo taking and Minghui trying to look pretty (like usual). I thought the composition of this pict is pretty nice.

The next moment when I looked up, crumbs landed all over Minghui, on her head, hair, face and one bit on the inner side of her specs. She was too angry for words. Hahaha...And then when I tried to turn my spaghatti with my fork, the sauce flicked onto her again. Poor Minghui....

What do I say when it’s all over And sorry seems to be the hardest word......

There can be miracles, when you believe.......

I'm so proud of the China lady who comes to our house fortnightly to do cleaning, things that my mum is probably more incapapble of doing now. And this is the miracle.... TADA!!! Image hosted by Photobucket.com The first scene that said hi to me when I stepped into the room Image Hosted by The Image Hosting And then I turned and I saw this, my bed! So clean and nice! nothing on top, blankets and quilt cover nicely folded. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Woooohooo....but more incredible is this, all those things which I previously put on the blue mat are all nicely piled up, and now it just takes me a lil bit of effort to sort them out and put them into cupboards. Image hosted by Photobucket.com And my small little table beside my bed, cute and erm, full. I think I have too many things le la....the table is packed. Wah is this like so cool or what? I dunno la, perhaps to some of you, this is super messy still, but cm'on, you guys have probably not seen the ultimate then. Guys like them make me feel embarassed. There was this ocassion that Chai Heng came to my house to use my comp, and then I was packing up my room, and suddenly he appeared at my door, his face full of disgust and said "Eh, you are a gal you know right?" And I still have the cheek to still say "Ok la, not very messy what." Another time it was Roger who came to use my comp (see, my comp is so good everybody wants to use it. Who's next? 10 bucks per hour. cheap cheap) and the same scenarion, he SUDDENLY appeared at my door when I was trying all my might to lift up my bed. And he saw the next ultimate, all the dust and rubbish that's underneath my bed. Yes, I dun have the habit to lift up my bed regularly to mop it and all and sometimes objects just roll under the bed and I didnt have the chance to clear. Yup, and Roger too, gave me that disgusted look. Eh, but you think I care meh? Actually, the very first time a guy did such a thing to me was Louis, who with xinying and tianmin came to my house to visit me not long after my grandpa passed away. And so he saw the air-con red light on, which is an indicator to tell you to wash the filter. I have never did it before, so Louis helped me. And he took a cloth and helped me wiped the air-con, and guess what he told me? There were ants. Or excuse me, is there only ONE ant? Like so super 夸张 man. I dunno about then, but my room certainly does not have ants now? Then later I think he ask me to keep a book and I opened my cupboard, and books came tumbling down like how water rushes out when the dam is raised. ya la.....I do make an effort to be neat and tidy. I have shown improvement seriously, in the past, when I was still studying, the whole room will be scattered with books, notes, papers, clothes, old chang kee paper bag etc and there's only spaces for me to hop around until I reach my bed and the bed is too, left only with space enough to hold me through the night without any turning. I just find it SO easy to mess up the room. Like sometimes when I wanna find a bag, I just open my cupboard and sweep out all the bags onto my bed and leave the mess there. Or when I want to find a piece of clothing, I do the same thing too, to just throw all my clothes on the floor and leave them there. And it gets messier and messier. That's why it's really a miracle to see my room is what it is now; though I find it a lil weird to have people helping me to organize my stuffs and tidy them up and I have to search around to find my stuffs, because I dunno where she put them. I will la, I will make the effort. I dun like to be messy too =D

Chiffon... ...

For some reason, this word stucked to my mind the few hours before I woke up when I was still struggling to leave my bed and begin my day, my mind just kep ringing "chiffon, chiffon, chiffon.....". For who knows better reason.. I seriously dunno wats the meaning of chiffon. So I told myself that will be the first thing I will do after I wake up, to check the dictionary for "chiffon's" meaning. And so it is, 1. chiffon (CLOTH) [Show phonetics] noun [U] a very thin, almost transparent cloth of silk or nylon 2. chiffon (FOOD) [Show phonetics] adjective [before noun] made light, especially by adding the clear part of eggs which have been beaten: lemon chiffon pie Ahhhh.........Lemon chiffon pie.....so I see.........maybe I'm hungry.

Bags and bags =)

I just visited a few days ago a site which I used to visit because they used to have such beautiful bags =) I love those bags alot because probably thats a bit of the style that I like. But before I can buy more of their stuffs, I realise their products start to become more and more ugly. And I stop patronizing them too. Wow but that visit that day was really a refreshing experience. So many of their bags are so nice I think of them every here and then. To satisfy my gratification, I decide to copy down those picts of those bags I like, it makes me happy, hehe whether I buy them or not =) Image Hosted by The Image Hosting I work like crazy~ =)

Protest? Or just merely standing with messages?

I must say I am somebody who has near no affinity for politics, but I do feel my heart being stirred a bit after reading this webpage Jo sent me. I mean, she's more of a politic fanatic in that sense who is the first person in my life who is very into politics, who hopes to use politics to make a difference for the society. And this is what one of the protesters wrote. yup, going to say my five cents worth... Somehow, I know, Singapore is a very safe place to live in, which is a good thing. Partly also because we have a highly danger-conscious government and system, trying to be ever ready when dangerous situations happen (if ever). But reading the article just kinda amused me. Why did the police sent "troops" when there were only 4 people protesting (silently)? Of course, there is always the risk that these people may have the possibility to be terrorists, since nowadays the threat is so high, but are SO many policemen required to go? Actually the police can send send as many people as they like, that doesnt really bother me as much as the fact of the 4 protesters being shooed away. Why are the 4 protesters just shooed away like that? Why is their reason of protest not even inquired of? =( It's just like another way of saying, Singaporeans, your view don't count or rather Singaporeans, your views count as long as they don't infringe on Anything of the government. Say all you like, but as soon as you challenge how the governemnt functions, then you better shut up. I personally feel there's no problem at all with the 4 protesters protesting. They didnt even make any noise and just quietly stood there. Probably they feel there's simply no use to write into forums etc, and their last resort would be to protest to gain some attention, some REAL attention. I mean, what's really wrong? I feel the governemnt should address their concerns. Haiz, yep, I am not somebody who is really good at politics to go on and on about how bad the government is or is not. But I truly feel a bit disappointed with the government this time round. There already are so many issues around to discourage our Singaporean spirit, and now there comes one more. I guess the road to helping Singaporeans feel more and more belonged to the nation because we love this place as our home, remains a very long one. ********************* Such a weird feeling to have a pri 3 kid to call you to chit chat. My student last time from the daycare centre lor. haha....very weird leh. I didnt know her well, nor did she paticularly like me, I suppose, then call me for what??? haha....but ya la, she also has nothing to say. Like really NOTHING. So I have to keep talking. I mean it just really feels funny to talk to a 9yr old kid on the phone. But at times when things like that happen, I will rem what my fren once said, that it happens for a reason. Though I put down the phone after around 20mins because I am pretty busy, I still am looking forward to what's that "greater reason" for her calling me.

Going out~lala.....

Not sure how am I going to cope today? haha...going to collect my cert, go to the Malaysia Commission and settle the broadband plan so that I can get my free i-book. Meeting Linda for lunch too, good thing I cancelled my tuition today. I am so in love with this phone now. Siemens ZL75. haha.. I like the flowerprints, can.... So chic and nice, like pretty matured to a certain extent too. Initially, I like this phone: Samsung E530C. But now I thought it looks a lil too young compared to the siemens one. But have never used Siemens, so I dunno how friendly it is? Samsung is ok, quite friendly, but really not sturdy enough. My Samsung is half spoilt now when I havent even used it for a year: its battery life super short, the keypad not responsive enough. Anyway, I'm going out soon and going to prepare now. On a last note is what I tried out with a certain blogger's translation last night. It's called Benglish, you know how some people like to include lotsa hokkien in their blog, vulgarities too. Not that I support vulgarities, but part of the translated page is pretty funny, really. (I have more to talk about this blogger, but prob not now. Am in a rush to go out.) My friends are all Ah lians and Ah bengs And I am an Ah gua~ Ciao

And he threw them all down.....

Just now, I was bo liao-ing trying to see whether there are any other more things I can do with the net when suudenly I heard a loud shrill and thud sounds coming from outside the kitchen's window. Being the kpo me, who always imagined being an important eyewitness for some crime, I dashed to the kitchen's window to see what's happening. And there I saw a man (I suppose) throwing down bamboo poles (those that u use to hang your clothes) down through his window. At the same time that he was throwing, he was crying out as well, not exactly words, but cries that make me feel he is sad or frustrated (extremely that is) or drunk. Heavily drunk. After throwing down the bamboo poles, with one pole being stucked at his window and thus hanging down there, he went on to kinda try to yank out some plank-like thing from the ceiling. All these with him moving unsteadily, pretty much like a drunkard. And finally he got the plank out, he was pulled away by another person such that he was then out of sight. So timely, just immediately after the guy disappeared, there came a cop (so coincidentally he is patrolling, or did someone called the police so quickly?) looking up at that man doing his stuffs, and at the same time speaking to his walkie talkie, I suppose calling up for more cops to come. All these moment, I was so super scared the man will somehow jump down his window or what. I am scared that the jumping down act (if ever there is to be) will traumatise me, yet there is still this part of me hoping to be part of an "imagined great crime". Haha, I didnt forget to note down the time too bcos I thought this is quite an impt part of interrogation. "So what time did that incident take place?" And then I'd try to knit my eyebrows like I'm thinking very hard and say "Erm...Around 1130 I suppose because I was on a phonecall at 11pm and talked for around half an hour...." haha ya, and all that shit. Anyways, let me try to end this entry abruptly, shall I, because I am very tired and I have tons of things to do tomorrow. Later on, 3 more policemen came and they went up to the unit. One of the policemen dragged that drunkard to the window to see what he had done. Apparently, the guy barely can stand properly and was like half going to collapse into that policeman's arms. ThePoliceman got very angry and kinda pushed the man to help him stand still, and also used his index finger to point at the man; that kinda pointing that you do when you say "Don't mess with me." While he was doing this, he shouted very loudly to the drunkard, which I also cant figure out what he said. And then drunkard and policeman proceeded to living room which was out from visible range... Later on, nothing appeared at the window anymore. No policemen, no drunk man. Though I hoped to see whether TheCar came to arrest the man, or whether he got handcuffed or something, I guess I waited too long and it's only wise to go rest asap. And yep, this is the end of my story. Lousy writing I know, haha, but I couldnt care much. I am just very tired.... Bleah.....haha =)

Nothing to do

With one more hour to work at AMK central, my papa rang me to ask me to come home (if I can) to help him do some things. I told him another hour more and I will need to go to work, he said he will drive me, so here I am, back home. I washed my hair, refilled my bottle and hung my clothes too, so not really a wasted trip back home. My hair smells so super nice now and I am half drunk with the fragrance. Haha... Yesterday was a great day. I scrubbed my body (with body scrub of cos), gave my hair a relaxing mask, and did the pore pack to pull out my blackheads.... =) it will be even more great if I can exfoliate my face, do a mask and scrub my feet, but I fell asleep before doing all those things. Nevertheless, doing such things once in awhile rejuvenates me. Now my mind is all on Mi mi....of his test results...No matter what, trust must be placed in God.

I think I have been pretty tired and caught up with other things these days to blog. Anyway life has been fine *yawnz* (boring....) haha.... My Philippines mission worker called me on phone the other day JUST TO HEAR MY VOICE! How cool? haha...was really touched and shocked when I knew it was her. I mean, people dun have much money, yet because she missed your presence, thus she called you. And I somehow, got to see many couples quarelling on the streets these days. One day, it's a guy shouting at the gal and then they are still holding hands. The gal like just lowered her head and get scolded by the guy. Another day it's this married couple and the wife was scolding the husband of how he doesnt care for the family and only know how to gamble and how sick the daughter was. Children are really innocent at times like these, to have nothing better to do than to watch the fight, and wonder why. I am amazed when with time I realise how different our church adults and young adults are. Not that any side is more positive but they are each encouraging in their own ways. Somehow, I am a lil more inclined towards the adults because I feel teenagers these days tend to depend a bit too much on emotions. Friends and family, they never stop teaching me lessons. My dear friend recently suspected he has cancer. Results will be out tomorrow at 3pm. I try not to be too affected but to really be strong to him in times like these. More updates soon when I have more mood.... =)

Off Day

Shiok again. Today's my offday and though I intended to go gym, and didnt do it but never mind about it; I had a good rest. Created my Flickr account and posted the badge thing at the sidebar. Dun visit it yet cos there's only one album there right now. Haha...I'm too lazy and also no time to do too much. I should want to upload those photos that are more significant like my Korean and mission trip photos, events photos with a specific agenda. Probably not daily bo liao and insignificant picts. It's pretty like multiply eh? Maybe I was just too lazy to try out with Multiply even though I already have an account. But if I sort out my picts, I could post them at multiply too. So much for all those photo talk. I was so super bored on National Day can? All my friends are either too busy or have gone out too much (with me or without me) that nobody really wants to go out on National Day. I have to stay at home.....booo hoooo...... Anyway I was so free I ended up editing picts which I found lying around in my comp, some of which are quite funny too. I have decided to post them up here... I am growing quite sian of the header thing again. When can I polish up on my flash skills and try uploading some flash thing up there on the header.....? Yeah la, when I am super free, I will change the color layout of this page and make a new pict for the header, accompanied by one of my favorite songs. Meanwhile, phots first alright? =) One day, after some church event, many of us went out. We went to sizzler.... Image hosted by Photobucket.com People come, and people go... Image hosted by Photobucket.com Them...Shawn and Roger la After the lunch, as usual, we walked around for awhile. No more movie to catch, so one by one people went home and left Kin Leong, Roger, Shawn and I. We decided to go to Bugis for some reason. And along the way, we were meddling with Shawn's digicam and taking picts Image hosted by Photobucket.com I am the famous stalker Image hosted by Photobucket.com Haha, we look nice! But definitely no couple look. I look more like his aunty. Sitting at Mos Burger and having nothing to do, Roger was showing Shawn on aperture and shutter speed kinda effect and I became the experimental target. Image hosted by Photobucket.com A very bad example of photography. I look scarred. Another day, our church had retreat at Genting. Out of the whole cell group, only 5 gals signed up. One of them is me. Image hosted by Photobucket.com The five roses and the one thorn. One characteristic with camps or retreat is normally the fact that we have lots of food, and this retreat included. Image hosted by Photobucket.com This is our hotel's restaurant. We are being served very nice food everyday. Just that the menu gets repeated again and again and we realised we were eating almost the same thing everyday. Eh, dun complain la, muz give thanks ok? Oh ya, can someone tell Tianmin not to be so happy until she muz close her eyes to show her joy? Image hosted by Photobucket.com At another restaurant at the theme park. This restaurant's food is so much more better. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Yep, a scene of us taking the cablecar up to the theme park. Image hosted by Photobucket.com A shot of what we first played. Tianmin was so lousy, after this round she felt extremely giddy and after the roller coaster, she started puking. Anyway all 4 of us felt really tired and giddy (I didnt feel extremely giddy) after our lunch and play at theme park that with common consensus, the first thing we did after reaching back to our room is to lie flat on the bed and knock out. Everybody went without dinner that night as we wanted to sleep more. Or did I eat? Image hosted by Photobucket.com The music team who plays nice songs everyday during devotional messages. During one of our "game time", we were instructed to build something and we built this Image hosted by Photobucket.com Minghui and I rolled our eyes when we hear how super logical those adult men sound like they are really building an architecture building. Well, I guess logic helps that time, as they come out with many priciples as to how to secure our "building" etc etc And by the way, one day when we were happily eating in the restaurant, Xinying brought us this sign that was used to be placed on the tables to show our church reserved that table. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Just what's so special about it? Image hosted by Photobucket.com Wahahahahah....The People's = 那个人 Bible = 圣经 Church= 教堂 Therefore, The People's Bible Church = 那个人的圣经教堂??? We all had a good laugh. The last day, busy taking pictures again, of cos. And we took pict with this super cute gal, clare Image hosted by Photobucket.com I thought Minghui and the mum looks alike cos of the specs. And Clare and I look alike, cos of the fringe. haha.... On our way back, we had a very nice looking bus with a pink interior! Image hosted by Photobucket.com We are one big family! Image hosted by Photobucket.com Who, who??? Who took our eyes only??? Image hosted by Photobucket.com Me with cute bin. We had very little time for dinner that night, so we bought these easy food to eat Image hosted by Photobucket.com The pretty famous burgers you can find in Malaysia. Mine was a fish one. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Sorry, eat finish already. Image hosted by Photobucket.com I also bought this cute kwey which they used to sell in AMK central as well. Anyway the amk one tastes so much better Image hosted by Photobucket.com Maybe we were too hungry that we unconsciously moan and groan, so the aunties beside us gave us this. A green color orange? Which was super sour lor.... After coming back, we felt so recharged by our retreat that we decided to have a follow up event from our last kayaking event Image hosted by Photobucket.com Minghui was scolding people. I looked blur. Dickson wanted to sneakily run away. Nah, just kidding, I cant remember what happened. Image hosted by Photobucket.com Weixiang passed out after we took this pict bcos he was too tired. See his face, how terrible he must have felt. Nah, just kidding too. I think he stomachache la. The BBQ we had!! Image hosted by Photobucket.com Roger's head has an orange extension which actually is a radar. Very bad photography mistake! Image hosted by Photobucket.com Why? Does it look very nice to have trash in the foreground? Other picts taken that day Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Two out of nowhere picts Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Going to run!!! Meeting Minghui and I think I'm gonna be late!!!!!!!!!
