Finding out more abt myself

Just some after lunch activity, got this link from Chin Cher's blog, and just tried out the test myself.

Cheeeeeem (complicated)...but in some ways it's quite accurate.

Think the link for my test results got screwed up along the way, else could've shared them.

Blah. Back to DDP!

{DDP, carolling, carolling, and other stuff} madness

Am quite busy and tired of late, from the DDP, all these distractions, and things that are running concurrently.

If it were just the DDP (design and development project) itself, it'd be manageable, but didn't really anticipate that these things coming in together would be so draining.

Haha...am not too much of an anticipator (at the moment?) anyway, so looks like this one is another thing learnt the hard way =D

Ok, back to reading

Good Stuff

More good stuff can be found in the here (sorry, accesible to those within NTU network only for now).

The vids and audio from the Klang Valley Bible Conference 2004, converted by Chin Cher.

*Pic removed*

Different people react differently to cameras, and they make different types of subjects. Heh heh heh =D And of course, some are more fun to take impromptu. Don't ask me why I was running around hall with a camera late at night, rest assured that there were no untoward intentions =P

(PS: pls, this pic is not meant to be an advert.... -_-:: , neither is it to tempt people... )

Don't know why, but was especially tired after coming back in the evening yesterday.

Literally bombed out on the bed, till my roommate came back from hall bash, before I washed up and went to sleep.

More reading up on my DDP to come..

I'm not too sure how tomorrow will turn out, but my heart certainly aches at the thought of the (seemingly) impending unfortunate division in thought.

But God is in control: if it's time, it'll certainly come to pass. If the time isn't to be, no matter what, it'll never come. Nevertheless, we'll all find out on That Day itself, and till then when the Kingdom has fully arrived, the things we're called to do is still the same.

I wanna go home (no,not the one in Lorong Ah Soo).


After many many years, as far back as I can remember since primary school, up till now, I've realised for quite some time that I don't really know anybody, and the reverse, I think it's true too.

Not that there's nobody that I trust, or that I don't regard anybody as having a relation with; but that I don't really know anybody, who they really are, etc.

Of course there're people that I'm close to, but that changes everytime (not that that was one of the points, on whether that is supposed to happen or not), and that I know their mannerisms, preferences, etc. But, after all these, I still come back to the same point.

Not that this is a why-can't-I-have-friends-like-other-people-do time of thinking, but even within God's family, how are we to relate to fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and even with people who haven't come to the faith (yet)?

What is it then?

It may be just overly high expectations or what, but, I'm not going to settle for just anything, till...I hear the truth.

A "member" of my family Posted by Hello


Although the coming five weeks will not be easy-going in terms of time-commitments, but I'm certainly glad for having gone for dinner and watching the talks by D.A. Carson, from Rev 12 and 13 (still got one more, on Rev 14), have heard a lot today, but will need (a lot) more processing first...

Certainly am glad, for Christ's work on the cross, short of which we all would've nothing to do with one another, coming together in such a way.

On a lighter note, think I got reminded of the first time I "read" the bible, when referred to regarding the origins of my (ex-)school crest, the interpretation of which was certainly off.

My things seem to spoil all at the same time, well, at least this time it did.

1) my old handphone (really going to give up on me already, before I changed it)
2) my mp3 player
3) my earphones which I got for my dunno-which birthday

One's changed, now for the other two...no $$$ though...oh well, probably won't be able to listen to sermons (and laugh by myself, looking cranky on a bus or train) whilst taking public transport for the time being, can't tolerate listening on one side of my earphones already.

Back to school

Have been home over the weekend, and now, it's back to campus with different things upcoming, with some things finally come upfront, in having to face it and decide upon as a whole.

Fitness has been declining from the lack of maintenance (had to put in my all like no one's business during frisbee today), think the road relay trainings will help.

It's over!

Finally...Last paper this morning was a bit hard to finish, but at least, it's all over, for this semester =P


Thursday, November 18, 2004


The most surprising things do happen, things that you never expect to happen, but they sometimes do.


Tomorrow's the final day of exams for this semester.

Last burst of fire~ Chiong arghhhhhhh

We know not when the end is, though we long to see that day come.

Monday, November 15, 2004


An excerpt from "God's Big Picture", by Vaughan Roberts (which I'm reading at the moment):

Figure 26: The Psalms: 'The Lord is King' (Psa 10:16)
The book of Psalms is a collection of hymns and prayers used by the people of Israel in their worship. It does not belong to any one period in Israel's history, the individual psalms having being written over a long period of time, many of them King David. The bok has been described as 'the little Bible', as all the Bible's themes are found within it. Let us notice three themes.



Personal Experience
In the Psalms we find not just God speaking to his people, but his people speaking to him. We are given an insight into the believer's heart. The experience of faith in God the King is laid bare before us in all it's variety. The mood veries from great certainty and joy to doubt and depression. The Christian believer can expect to experience similar feelings: the King has not changed. The words of the psalmist can become our own:

"How long, O Lord? Will you forget me for ever?
How long will you hide your face from me?" (13:1)


Not too sure what to make of this...anybody?

What on earth is wrong with everyone?!

Why do people die?
Why do people fall sick?
Why are my parents so IrRiTaTiNg?
Why does crime exist?
Why does WARS exist?
Why do relationships break down?

Ever thought about such things? Want to find out more? More about the TRUTH?

There'll be a talk at SMU, at the auditorium, on the 2nd December 2004, organised by SMUCF. The speaker will be Canon John Chapman (from Sydney), and the title of the talk "What's wrong with the world?". Registration starts at 7pm on that day, and will probably end at around 9pm plus.

Entry by tickets only, since there's limited space, so if you're interested to find out more, or to see what's wrong exactly with this world, do drop me an email (gunblad3 {@} gmail [d0t] com) asap, so that I can help you reserve tix.

For those wanting to know about whether we can don't take the exams that bug us all so much, sorry, but that probably won't be answered during then ;)

Stay in

Yet another weekend to be spent in campus, supposedly to be made full use of the time here...

Friday, November 12, 2004


I'm ready: to be slaughtered by this paper.

If for some reason I pass, I can tell you it's not going to be any credit on my part at all.

Blogthings - You Are a Social Blogger!

You Are a Social Blogger!

Your blog is more of a semi-private affair for your friends.
It's how you keep in touch... sharing stories, jokes, and pics.

Okok, don't blast me already, just killing a bit of time after lunch =P

Dumb man eats bitter gourd: mouth is bitter but can't talk about it.

There's things I'd wish I can share with someone (not meaning anyone in particular here), but 1) I don't know what it is I'm thinking about exactly, and 2) I'm not too sure of it somehow.

I hope it's not another pathetic attempt at attention seeking, somehow. Would be terrible to fall back to those days once again...

More more more!

More exams upcoming, but that's not what I want more of ;P

Went for the PT talks which I signed up for some time ago, met a LOT of people whom I've not seen for very long liao there, heh.

Talks were on Ezra, pretty interesting how the OT passages (I've heard) are preached so far, in the light of the whole bible, tomorrow it'll be on Nehemiah, am looking forward to it.

Some things learnt from the talks and what I've read tonight, but more thinking through to be done about them.

People, it seems, are a lot more interesting than I thought, but alas, I'm REALLY slow when it comes to figuring out what's really happening in most cases...blah

"Fun" Day

Tomorrow's the fun paper (SC203), following which I'll probably suffer and get killed for 203 and 204 =S

But I'm not too worried, somehow, heh. (don't know which one's the thing to be worried about, if at all: the papers, or the fact that I'm not too worried)

Monday, November 08, 2004


The few dear people who continue to contact me, even though I've not seen them for so long, and not talked to at all other than the little bit online: What's their motivation? And purpose? Is it what they've been learning? If so, what?

Am curious to find out, not because they're the few who actually do continue to contact me, even online, but I'd want to see what are the real reasons for such actions.

First post!

TPDL Thoughts (link's on the right sidebar too)

Nah, not really, just blogged a bit about what I read today.

More studying to come the next few days...

And thank God for the technology we have now, else I'd have to continue eating my meals in pain ;)

A day in the life of a boring person

With nothing seemingly taking up my time other than to try and study for the impending 4 exam papers...

Ending up not doing the things I intended to do a little bit here and there...

With stupid thoughts coming in at the wrong times...

With nothing to be proud about (other than my salvation, which I never earned in any way), nothing to look forward to (other than to go home)...

When will all these end?

Time to go to the dentist.

Thursday, November 04, 2004

One down...

First paper down today, so much for crapping for 2 1/2 hrs...hope I don't fail though heh, won't want to retake THIS module again (that horrid "national education" stuff).

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?

Lightbulb joke - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For those who have time to burn on their hands, for whichever reason.

Remembering, at the wrong time

The more I try to concentrate on revising, the more distracted I get, not by the things that are around, but memories, and people.

The exams have finally arrived! Can't wait to get this over and done with, though there remains some things left to revise for too.

Just wondering how the SWs are faring, now that we've suddenly gotten ourselves buried in work and stuff...

Birds: They fly, they hop, and they climb walls?? Posted by Hello

3 guys at the supermarket

Went to get stuff from NTUC today evening with Ferg and Daniel, and as usual, I wasn't spared from being suan'ed, as with my study group today too.

Looks like I'm being suaned pretty frequently these days...probably it's the exam stress heh heh...

And yes, I've nothing better to blog about, for tonight at least =P

"This book, very good!"

Finally got my copy of the Purpose Driven Life, and the four-volume video study guide (video...?), that we'll be doing in our CGs in HOPE. For free! Good in some ways, for poor people like me ;)

Read the back cover of the book at the MRT station there, whilst waiting for the train to go back to campus, and the guy beside me commented "This book, very good!" whilst boarding the train.

Heh heh, I'd like to know too, whether it really is or not, for myself too (on biblical terms of course; if it were my standards, I'd probably settle for bible studies per se mainly, cos' there's still so much to learn). In any case, it'll be what the CGs will be going through, so even if I didn't want to, there's no choice either lol.

Think I'll be doing a side journal, or commentary, or review of sorts on it as I read, would help me to be clear on what I'm thinking too, or why I'm thinking these thoughts as I read on.

"[11:46:26 PM] ACH: hi dot dot dot"

I love (talking to) this sister-in-Christ! Hehe.. =D

After talking online for almost 2 hrs, managed to clear up some misunderstandings (generated by my stupid actions some time back), so am glad.

(Nothing much to this post, other than what I want to say here. So no point reading too much into this, cos there's nothing beyond what this post says =P )
